As much as some people gripe about the government shutdown to tell you the truth there are a lot of people that just don’t understand the whole process and what’s going on.
They seem think that all of the airplanes are going to fall out of the sky or that there are going to be nobody making sure that terrorists get on airplanes or anything like that.
Hardly the case, there are still going to be people on the job and things are going to be just as safe as you were before the shutdown. The only difference is that there is going to be a little bit of a delay as to when they get paid.
That’s pretty much it. The shutdown is not the fire breathing monster that the liberals are trying to make it out to be. However, despite the fact that Obama shut down the government more times than any President in recent memory while he was in office and oversaw horrific economic downturn they are wanting to lay this one right at Trump’s feet.

The partial government shutdown initiated after Democrats refused to fund President Donald Trump’s $5.7 billion border wall will not significantly affect the economy, according to a top Trump economic adviser.
Kevin Hassett, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, told reporters Wednesday that some federal employees may miss a payday because of the government shutdown.
Any overall impact on the economy would be minimal after the furloughed workers receive backpay after Congress passes a spending bill.
The federal government went into a partial shutdown after midnight Friday after Congress failed to come to a consensus on a spending bill.
House Republicans passed a version of a spending bill that included $5.7 billion border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
The bill died in the Senate after Democrats largely refused to support it.
Recent volatility in the stock market has led some to blame the government shutdown for the unpredictable market behavior.
On Monday, the U.S. stock market took the largest Christmas Eve plunge in history.
On Wednesday, the market bounced back as the Dow rose as much as 562 points.
