  •  Hey, you know what else is shut down? (0+ / 0-)

    Nearly all of the FCC. That affects more than just radio and TV. Want the hottest new phone? Guess what - there's nobody on the job to give any new gadgets the FCC certification they need to be sold in the US. I'm not quite sure how deep a backlog there is, but at some point it means you won't be able to buy an iPhone 6 or a Galaxy S5 if this continues.

    Intended to be a factual statement.
