Dumb and Dumber or Juniper??

Jittery Juniper Networks is axing hundreds of workers amid concerns the US government shutdown could hamper its stateside federal business.

WTF am I reading?

What "government shutdown"?

All the contracts (billions upon billions) were pushed out the front doors in September, this also in order to burn off any excess inventory of dollars before the end of the "fiscal year" (end of September) lest one gets accused of "not spending enough".

Quantitative Farting of 70 billion USD per month is continuing apace, AFAIK.

The "deal" after the "shutdown theater for retards and naive clowns" is that there won't be a debt ceiling UNTIL FEBRUARY. Get your contract ON!

One day after the "deal" passed, USD 300 x 10⁹ (that's 0.3 TREEELLLION DOLLAR) had been borrowed and spent (talk about a precocious ejaculation of fiat money). I am sure a few Juniper routers can pass through that kind of opening.
