    The Reps and the Dems are trying to avoid the government shut down. Again.

    The Dems are entirely unserious and don't want to address anything that might help while we burrow $4.00 for every $6.00 we collect in tax. Insnaity.

    It's time to put the saddle on the horse and show it to the folks. The Dems have shut down the government in Wisconsin. the Dems have shut down the government in Indiana.

    It looks like they will want to do in Maryland where they are the Majority. What's wrong with this picture?

    If the government shuts down, it will be the Dems that are doing it. Will anyone notice if it gets shut down? I say let it shut down and keep it shut down. All the programs that everyone cries about all the time will go on buy law.

    Just for grins, how about we don't pay the sloths who don't work during the shut down? Maybe they'll see the wisdom of getting a paycheck if they stop for a while.

    This is our best shot to reduce the deficit.

    The Gingrich government shutdown ended when Clinton agreed to submit a CBO-approved balanced budget. That was one of the best thing that ever happened to this country.

    Unfortunately, GW trashed that idea.

    Once things calmed down he should have required it again.

    The media promotes outrage. Bill Clinton refused to back down and the media blamed Newt Gingrich for the government shutdown in the 90's. The left wing dominated media even made a crude comparison to a hollywood cartoon claiming " the Ging(grinch) that stole Christmas". There alternate sources of information today but you can always count on the left wing dominated media to blame the republican party "Blame Boehner".

    LOL Making excuses in advance, there Whitey? Of course the GOP and the Teabaggers will be blamed for their intransigience. Justly so.
