Military bases see Pokemon X/Y copies delayed due to government shutdown



Certainly not the worst part of the government shutdown here in the states, but a very annoying one! At least there's still an eShop option. Thanks to Mr_Raccoon for the heads up!

I find the site of a bunch of manly military men, all decked out in camo, playing Pokemon to be a hilarious image. Especially if they're all using Jigglypuff as their lead Pokemon.

As someone who doesn't side with any party as of late (I don't wholly agree with Republicans or Democrats), I wish both sides would stop this stupid game of "nuh uh, yes huh" and get back to work! This whole thing is even affecting my father's workplace because one of their biggest contractors is a local government establishment, and I don't like thinking about the possibility that his place of work might have to make cut backs due to a major contract loss.

Um..........no. This is due to the fact that the government shutdown effects things like mail to the troops.

i think the shutdown only affects federal government stuff, if it's a local government establishment he may be ok...

@Eternal Rain
Republicans shut down the government because of Obamacare.

Democrats literally can not do anything. It's just extortion.

Baloney. Democrats could pass the individual spending bills that have passed the House, but they chose not to.

And you need to look up the definition of extortion.

That's because they have an enormous amount of bullsh*t in them. Do your research before commenting.

There are a lot of lame asses on the Dem side in Congress. But the sheer level of morons in the House on the GOP side is staggering. SO much so that many of the same people who VOTED YES to pass "Obamacare", are now part of this government shutdown hostage situation. And by the way, they've seen their poll numbers since they did, and are already beginning the processing of caving like little bitches, which they will do before the end of month.

So all they honestly accomplished, was putting some 800,000 Americans out of work temporarily, as well as shutting down parks, services, etc. nationwide, and screwing over the "hero" veterans they always claim to support.

@Devil_Rising

Thank you, you saved me from typing a good rebuttal. You are correct. I wish more people would understand whats going on and how the US government works.

Also the US postal service is not affected very much by the shutdown. Mail is still being delivered.

The two US political parties couldn't get to a budget agreement (apparently based on this 'Obamacare' thing), so the government of the US is in deadlock and has shut down as a result. It's called various things like parks and national monuments, government offices, etc to close.

That's very idiotic to rebuild it one by one. It's all or nothing.

If you can't deal with the effects, maybe you shouldn't have shut it down? I don't know, just seems smart to me.
