– No one likes the government. I mean no one. Don’t worry federal agencies, people still support majority of them even with shutdown.

– Government shutdown felt in places like France as well. Literally.

– Venezuela to US: We’re warning you, we could kick out all US diplomats.

– Thought we won’t know? “Amid the hoopla of the government shutdown, the White House quietly passed a bill Monday that overrides a law banning military aid to countries that use child soldiers.”
