Now when the US government will shut down - how will it affect you?

I'm told there's no longer any speed limit... So, there's that.

I'll be forced to watch ignorant republican morons from texas being interviewed 24x7 on CNN instead of learning about real news.

If you wanted real news, you wouldn't be watching CNN.

That said, here's the best and most complete commentary on the matter I've found.

http://ordinary-gentlemen.com/blog/2013/10/04/the-10-biggest-lies-being-told-about-the-government-shutdown

The key takeaway: "The current government shutdown is damaging, dangerous and unnecessary — and the fault of it lies entirely with Republicans, and Republicans alone."

That was an interesting link. I'll try to read it when I get a little more time.

You're right about CNN.  I am watching more and more BBC news lately.

Now when the governments have restarted again. What are the most obvious changes from before that you can notice? (Besides there being speed limits again)

The Republicans are this much closer to being officially a relic of the past.
