If those irresponsible people go so far as to shut down our government because of their juvenile squabbles, they should be fined for each day it is shut down.
Of course THEY make our laws.so this won't happen.

We SO need a three party system (at least)
SICK of extremists of ALL sorts ruining things for everyone, be it political, relgious, ideoligical, whatever.

ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!

Did you mean fined or fired? Laugh

This entire business of "The day we shut down", is all such a bunch or boloney. Nothing is going to shut down, unless its a political tool to make the public panic. Like telling you your refund checks will be delayed, and making you think critical things will shut down. The military, ATC, Congress, Social Security, and definatly not the IRS are going to shut down, its all boloney. We herd things like National Parks will shut down, and forest rangers will lock all the gates to National forest backcountry. Now thats funny when you think about it. Some Forest ranger will get into his truck, drive up all the dirt backroads, to lock the cable blocking the dirt roads up to the mountain peaks, and that will be what they shut down. John and I will not be able to go target shooting next week, becasue the road cable will be up and locked, to a remote fireroad going up Alamo Mountian in the Los Padres National Forest. On a weekday, you might see a few others, and on the weekend maybe a few dozen.

At the worst, some will get ferlouhed for a day, for a show. They will make a big stir like they do in California every year, telling State employees they will get IOU's, but the work will go on.

Besides, how ludicras when our deficiet is trillions of dollars our grandchildren will be paying, that over the little budget problems now, they wouldn't just keep working, and writing paychecks that end up in the deficiet anyways.

I was thinking, if a person's life gets screwed because they didn't get their check..can they sue the government?
So many people including government workers are on the brink financially.
The recession took it all.
They are living paycheck to paycheck right now.
Do these fools on the hill NOT get that?

Theyd rather keep pointing their fingers at one another -
they're only going to continue to for some time.

I CAN'T WAIT for gas to go up higher
along with foods, I'm just anxious and excited
about it. SO WHAT!!! :wave:

What is going to happen as a result of the gas
prices they don't see coming, they're too stupid
to see those things. Not going to help their
agendas thats for sure. RAISE EM UP. Laugh

astonishment. “I never heard of such a thing!”

The social security administration has told me over the last 3 or 4 years that the cost of living has not increased.
