Government shut down halts Pokemon X/Y shipment

As if we needed more reasons to hate the government.

LOL_WUT1744d ago

Well you could always leave...

DarkHeroZX1744d ago


Well first of all its not that simple. If Mystogan is a US citizen the he/she can't just up and leave somewhere else. First he/she would need a passport to leave the country, one would also need to have the means of importing all their personal belongings else where. Depending on where you go you'd need to make sure that language barriers won't pose a problem, you need a place to stay and you would need a steady job. And in order to get a job in most cases you need to file for a working visa which isn't always easy. I'm sorry but as a tax payer one has the right to bash their own government. Once people like you wake up and realize that the people are the ones with the power you'd be more critical yourself.

@ lol wut...... Or the most obvious thing, that needs to happen could.....and that is the us government pulls their head out their a$$es! You don't shut down the government leaving u.s. Citizens to suffer the effects while you still get paid just because you disagree with a passed law.

I dont understand why ppl hate the government but love sony/micro/nintendo and all the other private corporations.

What did the corporations do anything for the ppl other than sell stuff?

rainslacker1744d ago


Difference between govt and corporations is that corporations can shut down if they run inefficiently for years on end. Corporations also don't typically spend years disagreeing and arguing with those that they are supposed to support, and those that they work with. Corporations, from a operational sense, tend to be much more civil towards one another.

SITH1743d ago

I agree leave. But that would be hard given government is shut down, and getting a passport is no longer possible.

kreate1740d ago


corporations do the same things u mentioned above. the US Gov't actually runs like a corporation.

Well that F'ing sucks...

mushroomwig1744d ago

Thanks Congress

Fixed that for you.

Ashlen1744d ago

I'll fix your fixation.

Thanks broken from of government that only has two parties allowing one group to grind the whole country to a halt when there having a tantrum.

If US had a less stupid governmental system this wouldn't even be possible.

SilentNegotiator1743d ago

Thank them both. Neither side has made any effort to make concessions. The Obama administration will have to sign off on whatever congress decides on and Obama, the undisputed model by which 75% of democrats will always vote with, is being equally hardheaded about even attempting real discussion.

Congress high speed. Only congress can halt government and vote to reinstate it. The president simply signs to the bill to activate it. The senate simply proposes a bill to activate it and must pass congress before the president can sign it. It is the responsibility of congress to form a budget each and every year by OCT. 1st or by law the government is shutdown. No go read a book on how the U.S. government works. Next you are going to claim Obama is spending your money, when only congress has the power to tax, and spend that tax money. The right feeds on the fact it's audiences and constituents are utterly oblivious to how government works.
