What the fuck? The government shutting down? That sounds ridiculous...I was unaware that could happen. But I guess given the state of the world these days, anything can happen.
But these are truly strange times and I guess anything is possible...but my optimistic "gut" feeling is that some sort of temporary funding measure will be approved until they iron things out and approve a budget.
I know this much...if they don't pay the military...there damn well better not be any welfare checks being doled out!
