 What the hell does that even mean? I live in Canada so this doesn't effect me but I'm curious as to what is going on too....

The government is shutting down and anarchy will take over.  Or you can get the real story on any reputable news website.

Just another fear tactic to keep people on edge.  None of that shit ever happens.  Y2K, swine flu, every friggin year claiming it will shut down, whatever these last cuts were that were suppose to bring the nation to its knees but somehow I didn't even feel a tiny whisper (they had some name I can't even remember).  Its all a bunch of bullshit.

 Eh, not really worried either way.  I mean, it would mean we don't get paid, but what is the base going to do...evict us?  I doubt it will get past the pissing contest, and if it does, the whole country is going to hell in a hand basket, and it should be fun to watch.  lol

No, I don't. And if it does I won't be affected.
