I know that we're not suppose to post political threads, but i dont wanna ask about people's opinions on the politics of the government shutdown i just have 1 simple question for my fellow Americans:
Did you really even notice anything change? Lulz

I've made more money under this administration than the last and i've also purchased a home, So i don't really care, as long as my mail still arrives so i can pay my bills and get my magazines, I don't care that they're all acting like children and hopefully the stock markets don't reflect on GTA V.

To my understanding all govt workers, postal and others, are still working just without pay. Plenty of people needing tips, and my mail man will be getting one from me when i catch him.

My main gripe over this is that it seems to have zero effect on foreign relations (military expansion and foreign "aid").
How can they shutdown the FDA, NASA, etc. yet not touch all of the wasted money on foreign relations?
Or maybe they have and I just haven't read it.

Congress talks about reducing the shit, but then get into fights about it so it doesn't happen. The real issue is raise the shit ceiling or default (say we can't move this shit so gfy and gl :))

Military are getting paid, but the payment might be delayed if no funding comes in. Alot of credit unions/banks are giving 0% interest loans to cover the the paychecks the military members might not recieve, under the (rightful) assumption that the government will backpay for time worked. The military contract dictates our pay in accordance with our rank. So if we don't get paid the amount our contract states, the government is in breach of its contract and are open to lawsuit. Lawsuits are more costly, so its fair to assume that back pay will take place.

Civilians GS employees are losing all hours, but may get to stay if their work load dictates that they need to continue working.

The debt cieling issue is above my head, but i believe its supposed to be really bad if we default there. Whatever that might mean.

The whole shutting down the government through filibuster to stop universal health care is ridiculous, but i also think it's hilarious that someone like Ted Cruz read Dr Seuss books for 23 hours just to keep the filibuster going while the all these dreadful and incredibly serious consequences loom around the corner if we don't get our shit together in time. The Balls. I'm not even mad, i'm impressed.
