The “government shut down” is fake

The social security checks, the tax refunds and the snail mail will go out. “Nonessential” federal employees (Are any truly essential? Is anyone?) will be deprived of their BlackBerrys.

Suffering comes cheap. Just like “we” fight wars far away and with little disruption, with the socioeconomic refuse of our society who have no other option but to “volunteer.”

The reason politicians are willing to go to the “brink” is that their is nothing beyond it but a roomful of cushions.

Want a real shut down? Close everything federal down. Last one out turn out the lights.

Then we’ll see how unnecessary government really is.


Better a government shutdown than to give even one more cut to the GOP

Barack Obama wants four more years? He has to show those of us who voted for him some of that “change” he promised and stop giving in to the Republicans, Wall Street, the war industry, etc. How about some change for the rest of us?
