This week we will deviate from our usual bunch of crap to run a series of images intended to promote the idea that the Republicans and Democrats aren’t the only political parties in the U.S. – just the only two that control everything.
The State of Minnesota closed-down after state lawmakers failed to resolve a budget impasse. Democrats want to cut the state’s $3.6 billion deficit by raising taxes, while Republicans want to cut spending. The budget deadline passed and the new fiscal year began with no resolution, throwing 20,000 state employees out of work and closing almost all state facilities.
Only Minnesota transport workers were on the job, placing large “Closed – turn around and go back where you came from” signs on all roads crossing the state border.
