The shutdown is over! Sorta.

Thought I’d share this with you

The US House has passed a bill to end the government shutdown, albeit, temporarily. The bill only resolves the shutdown, but not the fiscal issues/debate it revolved around. This will last till Jan 15th, and pushes the debt ceiling back to Feb 7, which means a second shutdown early next year may occur.

But as of right now, the shutdown is ended and federal government should return to normal as was before the shutdown. Thought you might want to update the article on the 2013 Shutdown.

It’s over people! No more furloughed bumps on Adult Swim!

>thinking the congressional ride’s going to end

I’m wondering how long it’ll take before the nobility federal government realizes just how screwed we are. Social Security and Medicare’s going down the toilet; every administration’s simply kicking the national debt can down the road to the next one, who’ll in turn kick it to the next one; the economy continues to limp along (hello Lost Decade); and while all this is looming like a lion on a wounded gazelle, Obama and Congress continue to bicker about asinine things and are too stubborn to work together because they might “lose” the next election if they dare to show some kind of cooperation.

I yearn for the day when it won’t be about “winning” or “losing” but about running the damn country to ensure that everybody wins.

This, coupled with your profile pic just made it much funnier.

So basically…well actually, I needn’t say anything, I think this post covers what I’d say really.

You know I was being sarcastic right? o_o I even added in that whole line about how a second shutdown could happen in the future.and followed up with a jokey joke joke.
