I don't want to fan the flames of USA politics but most of these 
shutdowns are more theatre than anything else - as a f'instance the 
shutdown of national parks resulted in all park rangers being called on 
duty to keep the public out (all leave cancelled).

It was well semaphored around late 2010 that "certain groups" wanted to 
force a federal shutdown for their own reasons and I strongly suspect 
the net effect will be a lot of blowback on members of those groups.

As Richard has said, LLNL won't be affected for a while - and this 
standoff will be over before the USA govt starts defaulting on its 
foreign debts, no matter how many brinkmanship games are played (Those 
who play such games are likely to find themselves pushed over a 
political cliff, no matter which part of the political spectrum they occupy)
