I kinda like it. Its so rare that libertarians get their dream come true, even though I know it won't last.

Ha...this made me laugh.   ;D
Well it is sort of shut down. Did you see your mail man today? He was working.
I guess this service is important to collect taxes.

I think you're confusing libertarianism with... What do you call it when you pay *more* but get fewer services? Obstructionism is the only word that comes to mind.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Ask a furloughed government worker or anyone in their family how they feel about it.  >:(

I was stationed in Japan, serving in Reagan's USMC during a shut down and had to wait for pay. Its part of serving your country in my opinion.

I'm guessing with the Corps you were still getting three squares and had a roof over your head though. ;)  And of course they did pay you back pay once it was over.

Lived off post with preggers wife. Yes reimbursed because I still had to go to work. Just saying that I've been there, that's all. Not arguing, not better than. There are far worse times coming I think.

Never a good thing, for sure.  And I can't say I disagree with your prediction, unfortunately. :P  Lucky I have a decent job, no doubt, but I do worry about younger folks I know that are less fortunate in this mess.

Guys, this is getting dangerously close to a political discussion.  If you're going to discuss government stupidity, please do it within the context of how it effects beer, not the government itself.

I'm guessing that a thread on government stupidity would surpass the length of the "Song Title" thread!  ;D

The wait for an ok to do a beer label is what caught my attention. I'm not convinced that we really need DC bureaucrats to survive that decision. If we do, we have huge problems

Except maybe that I now have a stronger urge to brew a batch of homebrew.
