So, I read today that one of the "non essential" government workers put on furlough due to the government shutdown is the dude who is supposed to look for asteroids that might slam into Earth.

How the fuck is that a "non essential" job? Are you seriously telling me that postal workers are continuing to deliver mail but that it's "non essential" to make sure humanity doesn't go the way of the dinosaurs?

From my point of view that dude has the most essential job in our entire government.

At what point did our government decide that avoiding extinction level events was not high on their priority list?

Write your representative and tell them that you don't want any asteroids crossing our borders!
