There are supposedly 2,500 employees on the Ames site. Seventy union members doesn't seem like an overwhelming number of people demanding that Obama stop his theatrics, and negoitiate with the House.

Why not disconnect Ames from the Internet for the duration of the shutdown?
"Why not disconnect Ames from the Internet for the duration of the shutdown? "
Yeah, nothing like a simple solution - pull the plug!!!
This shutdown is over. The Repugs just got their poll numbers. They're running for the hills while hey still have a job.
These are HISTORICALLY BAD numbers for the repugs - keep it up tea bag boys!!!!
From the Fox/Murdoch Wall St Journal: Web Link
"The Republican Party has been badly damaged in the ongoing government shutdown and debt limit standoff, with a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finding that a majority of Americans blame the GOP for the shutdown, and with the party's popularity declining to its lowest level.
By a 22-point margin (53 percent to 31 percent), the public blames the Republican Party more for the shutdown than President Barack Obama a wider margin of blame for the GOP than the party received during the poll during the last shutdown in 1995-96.
Just 24 percent of respondents have a favorable opinion about the GOP, and only 21 percent have a favorable view of the Tea Party, which are both at all-time lows in the history of poll.
Yet what is perhaps even more worrisome for the GOP is the "boomerang" effect: As the party has used the shutdown and fiscal fight to campaign against the nation's health-care law and for limited government, the poll shows those efforts have backfired.
For one thing, the health-care law has become more popular since the shutdown began. Thirty-eight percent see the Affordable Care Act (or "Obamacare") as a good idea, versus 43 percent who see it as a bad idea up from 31 percent good idea, 44 percent bad idea last month.
In addition, 50 percent say they oppose totally eliminating funding for the law, even if it that means a partial shutdown of the government. That's up from 46 percent who said they opposed that move in a Sept. 2013 CNBC poll."
Why there were only about seventy protesters? I am also working at NASA Ames, and if I knew about this action, I would certainly come, and probably many others would, too.
My goodness, but can any NASAs identify, how the media has spaced out, on us?
Excuse me, but the Demos didn't bust GW Bush, for getting up fraudster RS Mueller III, to quash any on-going FBI investigations, of bin Laden, Saudi Arabia, or al Qaida, and then they quashed any, which were about to start, so GW then ignored Clinton, CIA, Brit, French, Mossad, and all warnings, about 911, even blowing off a moderate Taliban chief, who snitched on bin Laden, out from under Mullah Omar.
So don't expect the wars to succeed, just because Obama is a narcissistic emulator, of Nixon and Hitler, both, without the honesty or tendency to cruel object lessons Dick and Dolph both had, to make an impression on dummies, everywhere, which dummies have bred, uncontrollably, you know?
Knowing this, NASA persons of interest should note we needed a new constitution, at any time after ratification, 234 years ago, but certainly by the time Lincoln offered the south a chance to keep slavery, for 40 more years, then to repatriate black Americans, in Liberia or else geld, sooner or later.
Abe had at least 11 boyfriends, you know? So don't ignore why The Log Cabin Club, mmm-kay?
WE NEED A NEW CONSTITUTION, WITH MODERN LEGAL DEFINITIONS AND A REAL DUE PROCESS CLAUSE, WITH PROTECTION FOR SECURITY AND ETHICS, against the usual criminal misconduct, by all courts, officers, and representatives at gridlock, with a real over-sight agency, to be named later, with all existing three-letter shmoozers disbanded and terminated.
Stuff like necessary and sufficient enforcement, even enforcement, ethics, and EQUALITY need mention, urgently.
Republicans are stupid. According to none other than Jumpin' Johnny McCain, the leader of the Republican party a mere 5 years ago.
"It's very, very serious," McCain said, as quoted by the New York Times. "Republicans have to understand we have lost this battle, as I predicted weeks ago, that we would not be able to win because we were demanding something that was not achievable."
Sounds like petulant children - "we were demanding something that was not achievable."
"as I predicted weeks ago"
