The government is officially shut down. Thats right. The government is officially shut down and what you need to know about that is this. 17 times out of the last 37 years, the government is shut down and the USA has continued to operate. Frankly i’m glad they shut down. I think they shut down 25 years ago. Let me tell you some benefits of the government shutting down officially. #1, the IRS will suspend all audit activities. Being that im under 3 audits right now thats good for me. #2, the government now lacks officially lacks lethal authority to spend money on non essential services. It is against the law for the government now to write a check for any non essential services. #3, you’ll still get your mail. The postal office is private ok. Its not government owned. It’s subsidized by their own funds. If you still rely on mail or open mail you’ll still get it. #4, the national parks are closed. Bear attacks will go down over this weekend. #5, if its free its probably going to be closed. That means if you want to play, hey you got to pay. #6, no jobs reports on friday. That means we don’t need more fabrications by the US government about how good the job situation is when you all know its not. #7, seniors, moms, dad, grandpa, you still get your social security. #8, food stamps and unemployment, you guys that are on the program you still get your money. You wont be affected. #9, The schools. The school lunches all the way through october if your in a public school, your kids will continue to get paid. If this thing goes longer than october, they’ll actually get real food in november. And #10, president obama his allowed staff up to 90 people. Now that they government is shut down, he must reduce his staff from 90 to 15. Mr Obama, how will you ever get along?
