I Will Be The First To Say It-

Shut It Down!

Even shut down, this joke of a government of we the people and the debt that it is in will STILL continue to run!

Reid stating that we are spoiled, childish, need to grow up, hateful, spiteful, we need to get over it, etc.

However, like Rand, Mike and Ted, I will remain fully composed :-)

I'm Curious

I know the repubs are too cowardly to actually try to shut it down, but I'd love to see how long it would take for Obama to declare marshal law and start approving his own spending.

Of course Roberts and the lame supreme court would probably approve this as a national crisis and within the power of the president. That would last a week until Obama disbanded them.

Ya gotta love a crisis.

they will never allow a shutdown

Because then people would realize that the government is not needed, as life would go on.

In the slim chance there is a shutdown, the Washington Monument Syndrome will go into full effect:

It actually isn't enough to recall them anymore

they need to be brought to justice & retirement with all their perquisites and stolen loot intact isn't justice.

In California they've gotten away with passing expost facto laws.

I think ex post facto laws for average citizens should be illegal but for politicians they should be the norm.

Bill of Rights /Amendment X: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

Do you need a politician or judge to "interpret" those 28

Get it done!

The government won't shut down 'essential services' anyway. So why not?

I think it is far more likely that the debt ceiling will be raised in exchange for the delay of the individual mandate for a year (or two) however.

Petition to recall Senator

Harry Reid:

Petition Background (Preamble):

We the People of the Great State of Nevada have called upon Senator Harry Reid to listen to our cries of opposition to the new healthcare law Obamacare. This healthcare law is a nightmare, and everything we were promised would not happen under this health care law was a lie.

Senator Harry Reid has blatantly defied the will of his constituents in Nevada, and it is unacceptable as well as disrespectful. Harry Reid obviously chooses to wage war against his constituents in Nevada by forcing this healthcare overhaul. He is waging a fiscally irresponsible battle on our economy.

I think it is easier than that

Just boycott Nevada as much as possible, hit them in the pocket book, his "Handlers" will straighten him right out fast. Most of them are from "Chicago" if you know what I mean.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

No don't shut it down...

Disband it...

Hey, don't go too far......

with this shut down talk.....

Cause they (the gov) doesn't really mean it.........

Go too far, then they might have to uphold their word :)....

Funny...this was my FB post last night

"I really hope the federal government doesn't shut down. I'm absolutely terrified; whatever shall I do?! I interact with countless intelligent, competent federal workers everyday, not to mention the abundance of federal funds I access. well I remember to brush my teeth? will I still be able to get to work? How will i access clean food and water? Panic!!!"

This whole idea

of a gvt. shutdown is a lie. Only non essential services are discontinued during a shutdown and even then the house can send over individual bills to fund non essential services that they want funded.

Yep

They were lying to the Military saying their checks will stop. Just unbelievable what they get away with.

Or in this case, renditioned to a foreign prison for being a nuisance to the enlightened members of our now barbaric society.

They talk about a "shut down"

They talk about a "shut down" but, will a shut down stop the wars? Will they cease taxing us? Will they stop terrorizing us at the airports?
Will they stop doing all the crap they have no right to do?

If only that was what a shut down really meant - i'd be for it.

"The United States can pay any debt it has because we can always print money to do that." — Alan Greenspan

Absolutely!

They have lied repeatedly about all the checks that will stop coming in. Although I wish they would stop to make them appreciate receiving them, they will not. So yes let it shut down, force the States to take care of themselves.

Rand said that on Hannity last night.

that the military would not get paid.

Which is proof Rand is compromised if he ever needed to be.

Anyone with a brain knows this to be patently false.

So if Rand is spreading known lies, that can only mean he is one of "them."

That's not good

The Romans tried that too. Once.

Roll over and take it, Yea or Nay?

There should be national protests of shame on this tyrannical legislation. Do WE still have a voice?
