This is to be expected from a fledgling third world country. The one side of the square wheel is wearing out after 50 years, but our elected pants polishers can't figure out the mechanics of lug nuts. So much for college degrees where pouring p--- outa a boot (directions on heel) requires a multi million buck study. The gnp of the u s is now FEAR.

That's the thing. There is no true shutdown. It's all Kabuki Theater to get the people arguing over left versus right. That's it.
If there was a true government shutdown. This would stop:
1. The $85BN/month to the Wall Streets to buy up mortgage backed securities and collateralised debt obligations.
2. The shut down of the 700+ military bases we have worldwide
3. Congress and government employees would not get paid at all. And no back pay.
4. All foreign aide would stop.
5. We would no longer be funding and arming the Al Nusra front in Syria
6. The worldwide drone strikes against innocent people would end because there is no money to operate it.
7. ALL government services would stop. Not just trying to shut down parks while keeping Obama's golf course open.
And we can keep going and going.
However, the money does not stop flowing. This entire thing is a theater.
Look, we the people finally unified. In the past 50 years we finally unified as a society against the military strike in Syria. All over the world, the people unified. The people in England shot down the idea of military action. The people here polled in at 80%+ against military action in Syria. For once the people stood up for something.
And sure as shit, within a freaking month, the media and government start this theater of a "bullshit" government shutdown rhetoric and the people are once again divided.
And it is the people that are to freaking stupid to realize it.
But make sure you get out there and vote. Vote for the same sociopaths that are creating this theater in the first place. The same people that have created a false crisis and have offered solutions to the crisis they created.
You sir are spot on,but I think you left out one word. Last line "and have offered solutions to the crisis they have created". Maybe I'm wrong but shouldn't there be the word "NO" between offered and solutions.Thanks for your posts.... make this site halfway worth reading.

Past two decades Wall streets has introduced to us virtual wealth through intangible products. So IT field benefited from that now world got greedy over tech thinking that’s where the wealth is, whereas it’s all virtual and local population of USA suffering on employment front since global cheap supply in the Tech companies… So it’s time to divert that flow of virtual wealth to local benefits that will help millennial continue on as same as their parents by using same algorithm and supply to their demands…remember we were able to create that for ‘Tulip” and we know it can not end same way, since then we have learned to manage virtual money market without having same outcome…

So what’s stopping you Wall Street get on and help new Generation locally in America…leave every country to supply virtual money to their own population using same concept…
