Yes, the government has shut down. Currently there are about 800,000 government employees out of work, but the silver lining, GOP members are still getting paid their $3400+ weekly salary. John Stewart has labeled the government shutdown as “The End of the World For Reasons No One Is Clearly Able to Explain”. Stewart compared the shutdown to America’s favorite past-time, football: “Did you see the Giants game on Sunday? Okay, they lost 31-7. And you know what the Giants didn’t say after that game? ‘If you don’t give us 25 more points by midnight on Monday, we will shut down the [bleep] NFL,’” said Stewart.
