Who Will Miss the US Government if it Shuts Down this October?

The Government shutdown 2013 can be the blessing the people of these united states of America needs because if Obamacare is not funded and Obama carries out his threat to shut down the Federal Government. I say bring it on because a government shutdown is the only good thing Obama has done since he was sworn into office.

This year I have decided to go with the crowd

And be dumb enough to believe it will actually happen. Sure, I was the guy saying the "supercongress" was nothing but a committee, and that the "fiscal cliff" was just political posturing, but even though a big scary government shutdown is threatened every year and it never happens because of "compromise" (read: sticking to the actual agenda), I am going to ignore intellect and experience and say "Oh my gawd! How will I get my mail?" In fact, from now on, whatever big threat the tv says is looming will be all I talk about. Anyone have any idea what channel I should watch to get the proper opinion for someone in my demographic?

Excellent Interview

October is so far away, but

October is so far away, but it would be the perfect "treat" for Halloween.


While the US government has problems, I feel it is still better than a global government.

The Bankruptcy of The United States

United States Congressional Record, March 17, 1993 Vol. 33, page H-1303

Speaker-Rep. James Traficant, Jr. (Ohio) addressing the House:

"Mr. Speaker, we are here now in chapter 11.. Members of Congress are official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any Bankrupt entity in world history, the U.S. Government. We are setting forth hopefully, a blueprint for our future. There are some who say it is a coroner’s report that will lead to our demise.

It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent. H.J.R. 192, 73rd Congress m session June 5, 1933 - Joint Resolution To Suspend The Gold Standard and Abrogate The Gold Clause dissolved the Sovereign Authority of the United States and the official capacities of all United States Governmental Offices, Officers, and Departments and is further evidence that the United States Federal Government exists today in name only.

Trafficant was the Ron Paul

Trafficant was the Ron Paul of his day. The government goons "rewarded" his pointed observations by sending him to prison... He's out now, by the way...

Beware the cult of "government"...

Shutdown is inevitable.

Shutdown is inevitable. Bankruptcy and currency collapse inevitable. Everyone prepare. The timing is not known but each day is one day closer. I for one see that day as a day of release from oppression.

Beware the cult of "government"...

Pull it

in 9/11 terms...... pull it

The Government

has been out of money for a long time.

I remember in the 80's there was a budget "shutdown" discussion that was supposed to close all non-essential government programs.

Oooooh, Scary.

Thank goodness Obama's vacations are not on the non-essential list.

Where would Colbert get material if the government goes down?

That sounds like the only downside.

Thanks for posting.


You think the drones will stop flying and the NSA will stop spying just because a so-called "shutdown" is cried by their spokesholes in the corporate press? Sure, people who depend on food stamps won't be able to eat, and people who depend on Social Security won't be able to eat, but Big Brother will continue to get fatter no matter how loud they claim there's a "shutdown". The only things they ever shut down are essential services, never the fluff that should be cut out in the first place.

I hope it happens. It would

I hope it happens. It would be the start of a lot of Agorism around the country. Could give us a headstart to beat the fed once and for all.
