Government shutdown? Not even close to what most people think.
By government shutting down, all that they mean is they closed down things like national parks. 99.9% of all government employees are not shut down. To even associate the term shut down with what is going on is nothing more than a lie and scare tactic.
More info, some about what happened during the shutdown in the Clinton administration.
[link to news.yahoo.com]

[link to watchdog.org]

Some explanations for what is going on.
"The last shutdowns occurred during the budget battle between the Republican-controlled Congress and President Bill Clinton in late 1995. Much of the federal government was closed for five days in November 1995 and then from mid-December 1995 to early January 1996." More at link.
 Quoting: Patrick Bateman

What may close? "The national parks, federally owned museums, such as the Smithsonian, offices overseas that give visas to foreigners hoping to visit the United States, many"... Continued and other answers at the link.

Oh I agree, things have the potential to get more serious in a couple weeks, but what is going on now is virtually nothing. Unless you work in a museum or national park. Even then, it most likely will not last more than a few days.

But, I disagree with the finishing off statement.

Do you think you can still walk onto national park property without getting yelled at?
