    It will never happen. Why? Because if it did, people would see that the sky will not fall. This, in turn, would undue the last three generations worth of effort Theye expended getting the majority to buy into their phony baloney world view.

    House Republicans will be cowed into submission by their Tea party brethren, and cause a government shutdown. And then big business donors will talk some sense into them. I expect that shutdown will last for a few days.

    Hey, you sound like you could do a pretty good job over at MSNBC. You know how to use adjectives and verbs to strike just the right notes in the heart of bleeding heart liberals (hey, I can do that too).

    Nah, don't be sorry, it's just another day at the carnival, and no one is right there.

    Even if the government "shuts down", it doesn't really shut down.

    Can I stop paying my taxes if they really shut down? They don't need the money right?

    Social security, medicare, military, etc will all be paid regardless. Federal workers will continue working and will jsut be paid later. There will be no government shutdown. The NSA/TSA/CIA/DEA/etc will continue to keep you all slaves.

    lol. +1. And just like carnival workers, these lowlifes in Congress have the sales and marketing skills to get you to play their no win game.

    When are people gonna learn? They do the same crap as often as they can. Look at how often they still say WMD's even though it blew up in their faces long ago. They Govern by Crisis. And we arent going to get to the Root of the Problems if we continue to ask questions that dont teach us what the Root of the Problem really is.
    1776 > 1984

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintian an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    Somehow I don't think the printing presses at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing will be shut down...
