31 Days of Digital Mixtapes, Day One:
Government Shutdown Edition
Well, it’s come to this. I must say I wasn’t planning on coming out swinging with my mixtapes. One, because I risk the chance of alienating some folks; and two, because I had a really fun mixtape already planned. The good news is, the planned mixtape works other days as well, so it will definitely see the light of day this month.
With how much people are talking about the government and passing around blame for it happening, I just kept finding myself disgusted. This isn’t a Left, Center, or Right issue for me, it’s an American issue. And today, our government refused to put on their big boy pants and work together as a team for the benefit of the American people…you know, those people who elected you into office in the first place. Hopefully, the stalemate ends sooner than later and Congress gets back to the business at hand: working together to advance the country for the greater good of the folks who live here.
Until that happens though, I’ve got this playlist. Given the nature of my current mood, it’s predominantly loud punk rock music, but there’s a splash of hip hop, folk, ska, and reggae thrown in for good measure.

Should I use headphones at work for this playlist?
Yes. There’s some swearing in several songs. You’ve been warned.
