Shutdown Limits Michelle Obama’s Twitter Posts

First we have this dismaying news, via the Washington Free Beacon:

Shutdown Extends to White House Instagram, But Not Flickr

White House maintains less popular photo sharing page headed by former campaign bundler

October 1, 2013

The Obama administration’s partial shutdown has apparently extended to online activities, including the White House Instagram account.

As of October 1st, the account displays a message conveying updates to the account will be “limited” due to the federal shutdown. However, the White House Flickr account appears to be functioning normally with no disruptions…


However, it must be noted that this tragedy is not just limited to Instagram. Michelle Obama (or her paid lackeys) tweeted the following via her FLOTUS account at Twitter:

Which raises the question, how can the highly trained staff of people who are posting for the White House on Instagram and tweeting for Michelle Obama on Twitter be considered ‘non-essential’?

Where are their priorities?

    So the good news keeps coming with this shutdown. Outstanding.

    This whole thing is past insanity. Government shuts down because it has no money. If this were an analogy for a business in the private sector it would pretty much be saying that in order for an indebted business to save money it must simply take a holiday and provide no services, although it will continue to take in money and pay out bills. This is madness.

    I love this shutdown. Traffic has eased around federal installations, including a lack of street construction that on this particular installation seemed pointless and made getting anywhere nearly impossible. The sun shines on. But what I wonder here is are we really saving any money? Somehow I doubt it. I would guess it cost more time and money to put barriers up around the parks then it did in real day to day operating costs, with the only savings being salaries that we will end up paying eventually anyway. I say we let this shutdown continue until we are no longer funding our government with CRs, deficit spending and 85 billion funny money. And if most of these non essential workers never come back, all the better.
