US shutdown: a guide for non-Americans.

That time Bartlett did it.


Sort of pissed that a government shutdown doesn't include a military shutdown.
Ditto prisons. If we're going to play chicken with the idea of de-funding government, let's go all the way! Open the prison gates!
And why should we have functioning borders? No more cherry picking of gov't functions. If we're going to shut down, we should do it right.
According to the Times, there's not even a military recruitment shutdown.
I wonder how long we could get away with not paying our professional soldier class.
It's not a government shutdown until we turn off an aircraft carrier.
RT @sinboy Aircraft carriers use nuclear fuel. The don't get turned off, just docked. Even then, you need someone to mind the atomics.
The apocalypse starts with an unpaid nuclear technician. I like it.
Fine, we'll just stop paying the sailors, and they can park it in the Potomac and just blare the horns all day.
