Blacked Out Government Websites Available Through Wayback Machine

 

(from the Internet Archive’s Archive-it group: Announcing the first ever Archive-It US Government Shutdown Notice Awards!  )

Congress has caused the U.S. federal government to shut down and important websites have gone dark.  Fortunately, we have the Wayback Machine to help.

Many government sites are displaying messages saying that they are not being updated or maintained during the government shut down, but the following sites are some who have completely shut their doors today.  Clicking the logos will take you to a Wayback Machine archived capture of the site.    Please donate to help us keep the government websites available.  You can also suggest pages for us to archive so that we can document the shut down.

  5. Shutting down the government leaves this nation vulnerable to those who would shut the country down for a long time or even permanently. Like Rodney King said: “Can’t we all just get along?” Why can’t Republicans and Democrats get along and compromise when it is necessary? Thank God for the people who maintain this wonderful website and remain free as possible from politics and serve their community without favouritism! We are at war like it or not and during World Wars One and Two, the government was not allowed to shut down and make it possible for a fascist victory. This nation became great because our then leaders compromised and worked together for a common goal, we can do it again!

      >>This nation became great because our then leaders compromised and worked together for a common goal

      This seems highly unlikely. Is it not more likely that our nation was made ‘great’ because the rest of the world was in ruins after ww2?
