    Well, the shutdown hasn't happened YET. However, there's something strange about Republicans -- especially the more ideological ones. They're like little kids. When they can't get their own way, they want to close the clubhouse in order to make everyone suffer.

    Why are you so afraid?

    Could it be that basically nobody will even notice the government is shut down? I remember it happened in the nineties, but I couldn't cite one damn thing that inconvenienced me. Possibly, many more people will realize that much of what the Feds are doing is highly expendable.
