While you were playing GTA V last night, the United States federal government shut down. Bitterly divided over issues such as Obamacare, rap music, and Dominos vs. Papa Johns, Republicans and Democrats failed to reach an agreement on how to fund federal agencies.
Now, if you’re wondering how this is going to affect the average person, it really depends. If you happen to work for the federal government, you’re pretty much screwed. Unless, of course, you’re a senator. In which case, why are you reading this? If you live in Washington, D.C., there are rumors that if the shutdown carries on for too long, garbage collection and other city services may stop completely. Within a week or two, our nation’s capital will invariably resemble NYC in I Am Legend. For the rest of us, trying to get a passport or visit a national park may be nearly impossible very soon.
A long story short, a government shutdown isn’t good for any of us. If there was ever a time to try to get your money right, it is now. Since we’re all still working and getting paid at GURU (sorry, NASA employees), we took the time to look through Karmaloop and find some fly, money-getting attire for y’all. Check these out below and get your stacks stacked before our government disappears and the zombies take over.
