The US is currently 12 days into its government shutdown and apparently everyone is cool doing without frilly things like benefits to military survivors or food inspections, because assigning blame for this stupid temper tantrum is terribly uncivil. But they do draw the line when it affects their right to bear Pokémon, it seems.
This sign hit Tumblr yesterday; its provenance is unknown, but it appears to be at a military base PX. I can't imagine any other retail outlet that would be affected by the shutdown. So again, I respectfully ask the shit-for-brains jackass bumpkins in the US House of Representatives, hellbent for steering the US into the ground: Why do you hate American troops so much you will deny them Pokémon X and Y?
