    It's just theater. They will raise the limit and print more money like always. There is no effective limit anymore.

    Right? Why get our hopes up like this?

    That would be rad if "government shutdown" really meant government shutdown.
    Yeah, “shutdown” usually means shutting everything customer facing (like parks and garbage collection), while the rest of government continues to function. Even worse it is usually just a paid vacation for them.

    The government will shut down at 11:59pm, Thursday.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Everyone knows they won't shut down until we shut them down.

    Such a Tease..

    Been played before..

    Pro tip:
    The Stripper is not going home with you.. Enjoy the show.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    My post probably won't age well....but I dunno, this time feels different than the others. It happens to fall exactly at the end of gov and fedres fiscal year and we know the bankers have been looking for a reason to dump the FRN as global reserve currency. A default would certainly speed that up substantially and create a narrative for why the FRN can no longer be relied on for global exchange and an excuse to intro Fedcoin/CBDC. Just so much more going on this time than the previous shutdown dramas.

    (eta: technically shutdown and debt limit/default are separate but they do tie together)

    That's exactly it. The parasites use it as a vacation. I had the mispleasure of being in DC in 2019 during the last "shutdown." The whole city and surrounding areas were completely deserted. This, even though over 80% of the government was funded. It's all a scam.

    Perhaps but these people only have the power you give them by providing them publicity. Otherwise he's a CNN wanna-be talking to no one who cares what he says.

    Sorry, but I'm not going to refrain from mocking people like David Hogg, especially when it can be done using nothing but their own words.

    Like so:

    If you think that somehow gives him some kind of "power" that he otherwise would not have had, then I really don't know what to tell you - except that I guess I just don't have as low an opinion of others at RPFs as you do.

    *shrug* You cared enough to repost his tweet so that you could complain about it having been posted in the first place.

    Mitch and Chuck reach an agreement to add $480B to debt ceiling to cover about 45 days of additional spending until Dec 3. If that date sticks, then Dec 3 becomes a date where -both- the debt ceiling is hit again -and- another shutdown is set for. Has that ever happened before where both are timed up to the same date exactly? Hmmm....
