So how is that Shutdown working for you?

How is the great epic government shutdown of 2013 treating everyone out there?

So far, it seems to be mostly political theater. National parks being closed and government websites being down are not really changing life for anybody.

I follow politics pretty closely, but I honestly don't know what the endgame is for this. Right now its not having a big impact. I think that as time goes on, more and more vital services will start shutting down, and the ripple effect of that will start hurting more people. But I don't know when that frustration will get big enough to effect the political impasse.

At the very least I hope we get some memes out of this!
