Basicly the US government is incredibly fucking broke. And everytime they reach their legal debt ceiling they pass a new law that lets them get just a bit more in debt or print a little more money.
This time, that law wasnt passed in time.

Yes, all the museums and national parks are closed. It's not like the police and firemen are all being sent home. Hospitals are still open, and emergency personnel are there if you need them. Just cancel your plans for going to the museum this weekend.

This whole thing is fucked.
They're essentially taking a vacation while still taxing us for services not provided.

Does that mean if I go over there in the next few days, I could start up a revolution and be the leader of a new US? With blackjack and hookers?

people are acting like this is new. Congress has been acting like spoiled children for years. They REFUSE to compromise and just try to stop whichever other one is in power. This was an inevitability in a nation of absolutes. When we cant take out heads out of our asses long enough to see that there are good arguments from both sides then we will continue to decline as a nation. Compromise was the aim of the party system, but its devolved to 2 fat kids yelling about who's right about a tv show's ending. "No MY interpretation is right, your arguments hold no merit because they dont exactly match mine." The fact it took people this long to take an interest is appalling, and its costing people their lives. We cant blame congress for this, its our fault. The U.S. was meant to be a nation by the people, for the people. And the people wanted a peaceful life that didnt require any effort. We became complacent, and then we allowed our government to see us as figures and not people. Its no surprise that they are all so corrupt. We didnt want anyone that would stand up and tell us whats wrong, we wanted to think everything was fine. The people are complacent to swallow their lies, but as soon as they are revealed to be lies people act appalled. We are the ones with the power to change this, but we arent willing to put forth the effort. As a nation we have become weak, and have let ourselves be ruled by the corrupt. We brought this on ourselves.

people, the government isn't some almighty group of benevoulant rulers who keep us safe and can dissappear. we the people are the governement we are the ones who maintain, build and repair infostruchture, the ones who clean and supply water, the ones who supply electricity and internet and the ones who maintain laws, the justice system and peace. not a group of wealthy congressmen. all they do is try and impose there on interests onto the country so much so that the actually shut down their entire system just because they couldn't impose their interests onto the rest of us.

You mean the 800,000 people who I'm paying to do nothing all day but sit behind a desk at a museum or park? Schools are still open. As is the police station. Name one department that was shut down that is necessary for the rest of the country to keep moving forward.

Can someone explain to me what the hell happened to your brilliant government?
User avatar #25 to #22 - Greevon (10/01/2013) [-]
Nobody could decide on the budget, so they shut down things like national parks and museums and a bunch of workers were furloughed. You'd be surprised at how much people overreact to the situation.
