Well, apparently, the government shut down, leaving the American people the duty to pick up the shattered pieces of our lives and rebuild civilization. This thread will is dedicated to recording the agonizing events for future generations.
One of my close personal friends (on Facebook, where didja think?), a well known recording artist, currently very hot, posted on his page this evening (I guess hes not playing tonight): Government shut down? Call me when the government shuts UP!
The media actively wants this to be a 90s repeat. They forget we made senate gains after that.
I’ll get back to you when I notice.
If he’s a country artist that sounds like the beginning of a good song.
I like that. That would make a great tagline.
You need yo post a link to that... it needs likes.
No feral government?
Harry, what will I do?
Where will I go?
“I yam what I yam.” Harry the Dingy Man
Awesome, just like with any other utility, I expect a pro-rated rebate on my federal income taxes for the period when no services were provided to me!
DETROIT is now officially shutting down tonite too.
My wife is hyperventilating.... I keep telling her we will be okay, but she is not buying it. I am also terribly concerned about the pine beetle and yellowjackets that are sure to infest our forest without the government.
The Internet seems a bit faster. Maybe the NSA’s intercepts were slowing it down a bit.
All Quiet on the Western Front — 9:16 PM in California and the lights are still on.
The White House was looking forward to this. They will use the opportunity to stop misstating the jobless rates. They will begin to notice the large number of unemployed.
They will solo begging to pin the blame on the “republican shut down.”
Did the world end yet?
I was watching the Texas Rangers - Tampa Bay Rays playoff game and missed it, if it did.
GOP has an outstanding point....apply Obamacare EQUALLY to all, with no exemptions to Congress, White House, Big corporations or any one else. IT IS CALLED FAIRNESS!
I watched dozens of democrat leaders talking on TV today. Every one of them said GOP will get the blame for the shutdown.
So then, why they were morbidly grim in declaring that? They should have a smile from ear to ear and a twinkle in their eye if they really believed what they were predicting.
I really do not know if I can face waking up tomorrow.
Where do we get the new 2013 calenders?
The ones that end on Sept 30...
Citizen Kane is on TCM.
Just think, if the US government ran the Internet we would be sleeping.
It’s Jason Isbell.
NASA (asteroid watch) has just shut down. This means it is now not just an issue of republicans vs. democrats, it is a matter of the extinction of our species.
I’m going to see if I can find a Michael Bolton album for morning reveille.
So I can drag my sad, demoralized, governmentless azz out of bed.
I’m alive, anyone else alive?
I pray that someday Republicans will come to understand that the only people who give a rat’s ass about a government “shut down” are the moochers who fear their snouts will hit the dry bottom of the public trough. That is, Democrat voters are the only ones who get upset by a government “shut down”. The rest of us really don’t notice.
I’m still alive...
Such a huge disaster that we wouldn’t know if the media didn’t tell us.
...send the Goracle (Al Gore) to cushion the impact. I'm sure he'd be concerned about any potential damages to the planet, and would gladly give his "all" to help in any way that he could.
Don’t notice? I’m sure after a couple days the smell of tyranny and rot will begin to subside and we’ll definitely notice the upgrade to freedom!
The Texas Rangers beat them by a few hours.
You know, we would never know there was a ‘shutdown” if the media did not tell us.
Of course the government shuts down twice or more as much as this every weekend.
No you're not, you'll be stone dead in a moment.
Women and minorities... you know the rest!
The government’s shut down. Bring on the interns President Zero. Then party like it’s 1996.
(Maybe Reggie Love’s available.)
Did the world end yet?....Damn near. I went to my fridge at 0001hrs to celebrate and found only one beer! The world has ended until 0800 this morning.
Now that you mention it, my extremities are losing sensation!
This may be all for tumblindice. I should have been nicer to gover......
Fox captions kept calling harry reid ‘hairy’. Earlier theu had a live shot of what they aaid was the dem leadership in the senate in confernce and schumer and reid were both yucking it up. I despise these people.
Will NSA stop collecting telephone call data? //sarc//
Im still alive...
No you’re not,...He’s just pinin’ for the fjords. But they are all shut down this AM.
Pete Sessions just tried to log on to Obamacare on the house floor, system is down ... Man that was funny ...
Being deaf has its perks. If the sky falls, I won’t hear it.
Bret Baier showed the Panda Cam a few minutes ago. They are asleep so everything is a-okay in Pandaland.
I came back from my ‘pining for DC’ paralysis just long enough to remind you, Comrades—It isn’t enough that you not be stuned by Big Government.
You must love Big Government. Whoa! There go my fing
