What If There Was A Government Shutdown & Only Congress Noticed?   Leave a comment

I know this has some people really upset – the government shut down – but it didn’t really. Just some functions shut down and, if you look around, you don’t see any mass violence, roads are still functioning, the border patrol is still getting blamed for the choices migrant parents make, the military is still doing what it does. Yeah, if I need to call some federal offices today, they will be closed. Big whoop! Fact is, if the federal government were replaced by a myriad of private companies providing the same services, they wouldn’t shut down because they would lose money and might even go out of business if they showed their customers that they weren’t needed.

The last government shutdown that happened in the summer, Brad and I went and hiked what used to be our favorite hiking trail, before it was shut down by the federal government and we were required to get a permit to hike it. We enjoyed our day in and day out without fear of National Park Service employees harassing us. We hardly noticed there was a shutdown.

Yay, Shutdown! Too bad the employees will get paid for sitting on their hind ends for however long.
