The State of Minnesota is Closed...

But, the territory is still open!!!

Poor bastards never had a chance, did

"ST. PAUL, Minn. - Some state offices closed and about 9,000 state employees were jobless Friday after parts of Minnesota's government shut down for the first time in state history, leaving most rest stops closed for the Independence Day weekend."

Services that were closed included highway rest areas and the issuing of new driver's licenses. (David: hehehehe)

"We need to fix it today," said Senate Majority Leader Dean Johnson, a Democrat. (David: this guy really has to go...)

OH but Dave, the dumb political bastards managed to get a special provision through so that the state parks could remain open of the 4th. Aint that nice? Meanwhile any sovereign (oops I forgot, in their eyes they are sovereign so I guess I mean lowly citizen, allowed resident) needed services are closed.

A Pissed Off Minnesotan!

Yes I did hear about. I also heard how expensive it was the keep your parks open for a weekend. What are they doing? Paying for custom landscaping. I remember when we let nature doo the landscaping and it worked out pretty well...
