Because it is highly unpopular and there are some dems who would like to be re-elected next year, I suspect it will get some surprisingly good dem support, as long as it is not enough to actually pass it.
But I suspect our government will be shut down this time. I’m kinda excited about it, actually. But I fear I’m excited in the same way those southern gentlemen in the early scenes of Gone With the Wind were excited about kicking some yankee butt. :-(
I'm more on the line of "GWTW" when Sherman was shelling Atlanta...
Last time the talk of a shut down rolled around, I was talking to someone who was a contractor with the Feds. he stated that they were planning on furloughing all "non-essential" workers; keeping those that were needed to keep things afloat during the "shutdown". I asked him that if there were people that were non-essential to the running of the government, then why were they on the payroll?
I got kind of a black stare.
A government shutdown is only a little over 4 hours away! I don’t know how we will be able to take care of ourselves without the government drones going to work and telling me what lightbulbs to use and how my toilet flushes.
We experience a 2 day government shutdown every weekend and 90% of America celebrates and it is their favorite time of the week!
