Anything can be made into an insult depending on the context it's used in.

It can be said as an insult but I won't take it that way.

I feel completely out of the loop. What is all this about the government shutting down?
#104 to #99 - rhodg (10/03/2013) [-]
To cut it short, a government shut down will last a few weeks and will lift when congress comes to a decision about funding and that **** (while they still get paid).

Alot of federal staff will not get paid for working, some will be let go, temporarily of permenantly sometimes, congress (I think) decides wether or not some of the fed staff gets paid or not. Government departments and independant/private funded departments continue to operate under a legal binding, meaning any public saftey departments (such as police, fire and ambulance services) will continue to operate with no/little disruption. The DoD will continue military operations and a bill passed and signed off by Obama guarantee all military personel get paid while the shutdown is active.

It happens quite often, last one was 17 (roughly) years ago.

As a Welshman who only found this out today, the information above is directly sourced by official reports etc that I was interested enough to read up on. Being only 17 myself, I've never heard of it before, until now.

So things like governmental research on diseases stop, but congressmen still get paid.

CDC and public education stop being funded though. Ain't that nifty?

Guys, most of us wont feel the repercussion of this for a while. This also has happened many times before, its just a dissagreement. Soon enough they'll stop acting like babies and be back to being corrupt babies.

I choose to believe north korea believes our govenment is completely gone and is currently rowing rowboats to California's coast to take over.

Not gonna lie, it was kind of a good thing that government shut down. During Breaking Bad's season finale, I haven't seen a single spoiler on the front page. Good guy 'Merica I guess.

is NSA active during this?
User avatar #89 to #88 - ambiguous **User deleted account** (10/02/2013) [-]
Probably. It's probably classified as essential to the functioning of the government and therefore still funded.

weed is legal in colorado and washington
User avatar #87 to #82 - mylazy (10/02/2013) [-]
But it is federally illegal and federal law supersedes state. If a federal agent were to find someone smoking weed in Colorado that person could be arrested just the same as if a state officer in Ohio caught someone smoking weed. Nothing the state could do about it.
User avatar #96 to #87 - charagrin (10/03/2013) [-]
Incorrect. Federal law does NOT supercede state, if the state decides that it's law is supreme. A state Sheriff immediately over rules any and all Federal Law Enforcement officials including CIA, FBI, Marshalls, military, etc, in that given state. A Sheriff CAN arrest a Federal Officer for arresting you for following state law and breaking federal law if he/she chooses, and indeed, they have flexed their power to do so for both POT and Gun Rights. It is at the Sheriff's discretion though. In addition, over the last few years Sheriffs have gotten even more power up to and including the ability to over ride the governor in certain matters. THis is just one of many articles.

Forgot to add this. What you are talking about is a matter of jurisdiction.
User avatar #101 to #96 - mylazy (10/03/2013) [-]
Wow. Of course a Sheriff can arrest a federal officer for not following a state law. That has nothing to do with what I said though, since it doesn't address a situation where a state law and a federal law conflict. It only addresses a situation where someone is breaking a law. It doesn't matter if it is a state law or federal law is being broken...if a law is being broken someone can be arrested. But a state cannot decline the federal govts. right to arrest someone because of their own laws. Federal law DOES supersede state. It is called the supremacy clause and is part of the constitution.. About the first thing you learn about in any class over American Government.

What you said has nothing to do with a contest between state and federal laws, just someone breaking a law. I did not say federal officers outrank state, just that federal laws do.

I have learned about it, and I know of the supremacy laws.
User avatar #159 to #105 - mylazy (10/03/2013) [-]
Last time I looked here you had a link. What happened?
User avatar #160 to #159 - charagrin (10/03/2013) [-]
I dunno. it was a safe link to a news story about assorted sheriffs openly stating their intent to arrest federal law enforcement if they try and violate state law and or the constitution.
User avatar #161 to #160 - mylazy (10/03/2013) [-]
Everytime I post this link:

it disappears within 24 hours. It seems your link disappears as well. I would love to know why.

What's your point???
User avatar #80 - tenebris (10/02/2013) [-]
Except it isn't. The goverment is still up, but it is only funding "essential" services. The term "government shutdown" doesn't literally mean the entire government is shutdown.

I smoke grass and really hope Im not one of those people that every conversation is about why pot should legal ......... Oh the medical benifits ......Its better for you then alcohol I know I'm missing a few thousand other ones .. Atleast be honest you want it to be legal so you can smoke it without getting getting into trouble or having to visit drug dealers to buy it well i know thats my reason

Dear fellow Americans, can you explain a Mexican guy what happened with your government? The news here haven't talked about it.
