They are not going to shutdown. Not going to happen.

This is a game they play every year to twice a year. Oh look, the sky is falling, look at me, look at me.

Then at the 11th hour, just before doom and gloom hits. The skies part, the sun comes out and they give us their solution to the very problem they created in the first place. And they stand there in front of the TV cameras holding theirs together up in air bragging on how they saved us from certain doom.

All the while, when looking at the laws they just passed. We the people get royally screwed without the common courtesy of even getting a reach around.

6mo-1yr later what happens? the same thing all over again.

It is a bad script and it repeats more than reruns on Network TV. Nothing changes, same crap over and over. The sad part is though are the people.

The people continue to fall for this same crap. Taking it hook, line, and sinker. Thinking that something will change and it never does. Also, the same argument then continues to repeat from all of the talking heads. The same talking points come out from the RNC and DNC and it all ensues all over again.

New day, same artificially created crisis by the same people who created the previous artificial crisis, same outcome.
