    ~800,000 furloughed employees. Less money in the real economy. Political risk. Here comes another GOP-induced recession. Awesome!

  2. formerlawyer says:

    Is this map not misleading as active duty military is exempt from furlough?

    Wow, Colorado Springs #1 over DC? Who woulda thunk. What a wacky place, because, from everything I’ve read and been told, it probably has the highest concentration of evangelicals in the country, too.

    Honolulu third. Never would have gotten that one on final jeopardy, either.

      Just for the USAF, there’s the Academy, Buckley AFB, Cheyenne Mountain, Peterson AFB, Scheiver AFB. USA Ft. Carson.

      In Pueblo, CO there is the GPO/GSA Federal Consumer Information Center, with probably a couple thousand employees, with their very own zip code 81009.

    Fort Carson
    Air Force Academy

      Schreiver AFB
      Peterson AFB

      both more important to our national security than FC,AFA or NORAD
