The government is shut down, there is anarchy and murder in the streets. Cats and dogs are having babies, and the zombie hordes are coming for you. Oh wait no none of that happened. With “non-essential” parts of the gov closed down most of us don’t even notice. I woke up this morning and went to work like always. I of course do not work in government. I know some people are furloughed and that sucks but obviously your job is not that important. The only area that really bothers me is the closing of National parks. In Tennessee the smoky mountains are closed which sadly I’ve not made it to yet anyway. It seems that my favorite parks for hiking are still open. So once again not affected. So what is closed and why do I care?
I’m so tired of politicians jerking us all around. They put on these grand shows of theater. They play their parts to whatever side is supposed to like them. The masses hear the words but don’t see the actions. They all do the same things. They all want to use all of us and gain more power. The majority bend over and take it smiling. They have not passed a budget since April 2009. They keep dicking around and pretend arguing. Now it appears to be in effort to shut down Obamacare. I’m certainly no fan of the bill and wont care if it get killed. I’m also no fan of the government and don’t care if it shuts down more.
It almost seems like the government is testing out how people will respond to small scale collapse. Like they are poking us with a stick to see how we respond. Maybe I’m attributing to malice incompetence though. Maybe there is no master plan they just really are that damn stupid. For those out of work I say go find private sector work we.
