This isn't that bad, and it's happened before. My mom works for the Internal Revenue Service, and she says this has only happened for about 3 or 4 days. It's because the GOP is being really stubborn, in my opinion.

Don't worry, bro. It's fine.

The Republican and Democratic parties are squabbling over a spending bill, and because of this funding is slowly being lost. Tomorrow, if they don't resolve this, the contingency plan will be launched, and the non-vital employees of the federal government will be temporarily fired, per se. After this is all over, people will go back to work.

This is what "shut-down" means for the government.

basically the government won't have the right to spend money after midnight on friday night. no one will get fired, because re-hiring that many employees would fuck everything up, but they won't get paid either.

I BETTER GET MY GOD DAMN TAX RETURN BEFORE THIS SHIT GOES DOWN

I'm guessing this is why the flag is half-cast?

Ohmy. :c

I don't think military services are considered "non-esential" to the government, though, so I don't think you have to worry over that.

Not even close, friend. :I

The Government ran out of money.  Don't worry, Obama will create some magical thing that will save us


















For the time being.

No one's getting fired, no one needs to worry about getting fired. You just won't get any paychecks. No one will. Because the government will no longer have the right to spend money.
