WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES

We won! The government shut down and no one died. Almost no one was even inconvenienced except perhaps some federal employees. Hell, even the Smithsonian and the National Zoo didn’t close their doors. The US Legislature didn’t even shut down. They will still completely ruling over us and deciding our fates during the supposed shutdown. This was not a shutdown. It was a magic trick.

But here’s the fucking kicker. Here’s the proof that these supposed government shutdowns are nothing more than window dressing, a huge sham on the people, tugs at heartstrings, and fucking extortion. It actually costs the government more money to shut down that it does to remain open. The shutdown actually costs the government, or in other words you and me as taxpayers, tens of millions of dollars more a day than if they were to stay open. I shit you not. How could that possibly be?
