US Government shutdown insanity
The US government shut down is absolutely insane. Not because someone wants to build a wall or create affordable medical, but because politicians can't agree on something government employees don't get paid. That doesn't happen in Canada. In fact I don't know of any other country in the world where it does happen. That's something that only happens in a third world country. The fact that the politicians are still being paid even though the government employees aren't is obscene. If the politicians are still being paid so should the government employees.
Don't get me wrong. I am a staunch supporter of the US Constitution but this flaw has nothing to do with the Constitution. There is no reason the politicians can't pass a bill stating that government employees continue to get paid during a legislative gridlock. There is no reason.
American politics right now is a circus side show of self promotion. Both camps are cult like. No offense, but crossing the 49th parallel right now is is like entering the Twilight zone.
