the aspect of it, is that our Federal Government as of October 1st, is in a state of shutdown, where they're still there, but not getting paid or doing anything, our Congress is split up something awful and is gridlocked, they wont compromise, and they bitch about getting rid of our Healthcare, (which virtually every other developed nation has. ) So the Republican Party (Crazy White Rich Protestants) decided to shut down the federal government, so the national parks arent open, federal employees (800,000 or so) arent working, but our essential things are still being funded and functioning. Our government is just being bitches, the states and local governments are all still going, and working. This is basically Republicans whining like children cause their not getting their way, like when a child refuses to do anything when they cant get what they want, Same exact thing... Hope I helped.

Except that's ******* ******** .

"It's all the republicans fault!"

No, Obama signed a law that states WE CANNOT RAISE THE DEBT CEILING.
IIRC, Today, October 1st, Obamacare was supposed to go into effect.
Obamacare costs 800 Billion dollars.

Hmm, I wonder wh-oh nevermind.

except for the fact that Obama wants congress to pass a budget plan to raise the debt ceiling. Why the hell would he make a law to stop us from raising it, the debt ceiling is the interest we pay on our national debt, it continues to increase, so we have to continually raise it to pay the interest on our debt. In the end, rich old, lazy politicians need to stop being retarded, and get their **** together.. its crazy to me, how 535 people shut down the government of a nation of 300 million.

Oh, and on Obamacare - Obama, senators, and most people in political positions don't actually have to pay for or use Obamacare, but they'll gladly give it to the American people. Infact, they get a little form that states they are EXEMPT from Obamacare payments or fines.

The people in power who are passing this bill will never have to deal with it or pay for it.
We will.

Democratic controlled Senate is not accepting Republican controlled House appropriations bill and have shut down the government( non essential services ) since there's no money to give around.

It's focused around Obama Care and it's basically a stand off between the Republicans and President Obama, both groups willing to shut the government down to push their **** across the rest of us.

It's not that big of a thing. Just gridlock as per the norm in a bicameralism government. Media is just blowing the **** up for more viewers.

Umm, itself, congress is bitching with itself and shutdown... So, The US of A has no government for a couple of weeks.

Everyone has a voice leading to mediocre at best people in charge, usually because they have money and connections, so the people in charge are privileged types who really have no idea what its like to be the normal citizen and therefor are mostly unable to act in the interest of the common man while they abuse the system for themselves and argue over whether a donkey or an elephant is the better animal, yet they have such overwhelming power very little could be done by the citizens to change things without an unprecedented majority which will never happen because we're too concerned with watching the latest tv show and trying to make sure we aren't like them with hem being whatever the group that fits your personal prejudices, much like the people who lead us in their donkey vs elephant debate

They're a bunch of greedy, conniving children who think they should meet a few times a year and get a ******** amount of money but when it comes to working for the people, they're nowhere to be found.

Ordinary humans with a monetary advantage.
User avatar #35 to #33 - pukingrainbows (10/02/2013) [-]
Exactly. Any random assortment of humans put into their position will end up more or less the exact same way. Maybe different ******** , but ******** and greed all the same. The problem is human nature, not the off chance that we just happened to pick exactly the 535 biggest dicks in the pool.
User avatar #36 to #35 - dxcs (10/02/2013) [-]
It's both. It was planned that they would fight for the people then it became about reelections because of the money earned from being in their position.
User avatar #38 to #36 - pukingrainbows (10/02/2013) [-]
Well, it's more complicated than that, what with many of them already having money and using their position to sway legality to favor their income, but yea. Pretty much anyone would do that.
User avatar #14 to #3 - gamgroomps (10/01/2013) [-]
Congress is playing chicken against each other over one issue, like they've done countless times before, but this time one didn't back out by deadline, so they cut off all pay to everyone but themselves.

Truth be told, the fastest way to remove a standoff in my opinion would be to reverse the action, and take away their pay until a resolution can be made. I can almost guarantee that would speed up their resolution process, if only a little bit.

I think CTRL, Shift, ESC would work better- they could open task manager immediately, ending tasks that aren't running. This would be opposed to going to the standstill screen where they have the options to leave, lock, or change the password...

You know, thinking about it like that, if a program isn't working, you look up a fix. You find patches and newer versions. You do troubleshoots, and try resetting the program every so often to see if something isn't loading properly. Eventually, you might even take it down entirely to see if reinstalling will fix it. If that doesn't work... usually it's time to find a different program.
