So how can the government just be, like, ~shut down~?
Don’t we elect these officials to govern?
Isn’t that a little hard to do when the elected officials shut down the government…?
Perhaps I’m simplifying things. I don’t know anything about politics. I don’t believe in them, as a rule. I just wonder what our representatives are doing up there in DC this last, I don’t know, month or so? I imagine them roping off little sections of the Capitol for various game stations. There’s obviously a poker table with a professional dealer and those little see through poker visors. Then there are your classics – Monopoly, Scrabble, Operation, etc. For those inclined to keep the mind agile during the shutdown, there are puzzles and crosswords, too. For our more active ladies and gents, there’s a couple of Twister mats and Bop-Its. They’ve gotta pass the time somehow.
Honestly, I wonder if they could use some of the funds they’re saving not paying federal employees and pay to live stream this thing.
