sounds like a good argument to not rely on govt military in the first place.

The US military is still up and running... Not only that, but if there are any parts that need funding or additional funding, I'm sure Congress will quickly pass a bill appropriating the funds, and then continue to sling pooh at each other like monkeys.

Yeah, don't worry, I'm sure the defense contractors are still getting paid out even if the footsoldiers aren't (and yet they're expected to put themselves in the line of fire anyway).

Obama has already signed a bill paying the military during the shutdown, the defense contractors, however, aren't, so I'm not sure what point you're getting at.
