    If a Tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, did it make a sound? The recent govenment shutdown has absolutly no effect on me. If the media hadn't paniced, I wouldn't even know it happened.

    Please post comments on how it effect you personally

    Some government reports were not issued so my weekly chuckle did not happen.Also a friend of my wife's cousin EBT card did not function last Saturday.That was actually quite funny to hear that story.So a balance was reached.

    No, the government didn't really shut down, they just gave a lot of government employees an extra two and a half week paid vacation at the public's expense.
