The astonishing effects of the shutdown, in 8 charts

I had to use a post image site for these. The panda one if a gif and it is sad (well done Vox)

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/1/11/18177101/government-shutdown-longest-workers-agencies-charts







The Zoo’s live animal cams, including the beloved Panda Cam, are also deemed nonessential and will not stream video until the government reopens.








Nine of 15 federal departments are impacted by the shutdown




Furlough rates at different departments

3. I'm glad that after 3 weeks, the media finally realized that

6. I read yesterday that some people are taking advantage of the unstaffed national parks.

In Joshua Tree National Park, they’re camping in protected areas and even cutting down protected trees.
This makes me so sad and angry.

9. Yes that is beyond disheartening

It shows the effect of a mere presence of authority and control has.

10. Yup

and I expect the ATVers will be having a ball now.

But then someone apparently took advantage of the unstaffed State Department too.

It's everywhere, not just the parks.

11. My concern

Because of all the hurt of the Fed workers, I'm concerned that the Dems will have to give trump his damn wall. I sure hope I'm wrong.

such as the service sector that indirectly contract with the govt. Hotels, convention centers, restaurants etc.
