Happy Government Shutdown Day!

It’s been 9 hours and 4 minutes (at the time of me typing this) since the government officially shut down due to a bunch of overpaid, whiny children arguing over who’s version of fascism is better. Who, it must be noted, are still getting paid, and still receiving health care benefits most of us can’t even fathom.

How’d you like to be a federal employee, arriving at work this morning to an email designating you as “non-essential”. I wonder if those federal health care benefits cover self esteem treatment…

    Yeah, my salary comes from a federal grant, and I’m certainly non-essential, but the chain of custody on the money is so convoluted the government would have to shut down for months before it got to me.

    A week of no government so far…

    Hope everyone here is coping OK.
