In this Economy, I don't know, Spy...I just don't know.

The last time the Republicans shut down the Country was during Clinton's Presidency and we had a "Booming" Economy...that was in 1996. So, in this Economy that is no where close to being fully recovered from Bush's Economic Collapse in 2007...I just don't know what's going to happen.
But, I'll bet on one thing that'll begin happening right away...aside from the 800,000 Federal Workers that lost their jobs last night...I'll bet the Stock Market starts falling like a rock!

It won't affect me at all, as far as I know. I'm not sure about my Kids and their jobs, but I don't think it will.

As for you, I don't know enough about your situation to even begin to guess. Sorry.

It will stop Food stamps, Free School Lunches, Pre-School for Poor Kids, the WIC program for Mothers and Children, any Federal Grants...and the list goes on, and on, and on...

ANYTHING that gets any part of it's funding from the Federal Gov't., that Money will STOP, within 2 weeks or sooner.
Our Food will not be inspected, that will stop because the Inspectors lost their jobs last night.
I've read so many things that will be affected or stopped that I can remember all of them. I've posted Links to most of the Articles on this Thread, all week-end, so you can go back and read them....or Google all the many, many Articles about what will be affected.
The Federal Gov't. funds, or helps fund, just about EVERYTHING in the American Peoples' Lives that they take for granted each and every day!

I posted an article about that last night, that tells why it dropped. It's on this thread. Just go back about 3 or 4 pages and you should find it.

BTW, to my knowledge GAS hasn't dropped yet, but the price of Oil did in a couple of Foreign Countries. It didn't drop a lot, but it did drop around a dollar or so a barrel , I think. More in one Country than the other one.

Rachel is spot on, as this new breed of Republicans are doing just that.

Well Linda, I understand many kids in my poor Sequatchie County depend on free lunch and food stamps, through no fault of theirs, except they were born that way, so they will go hungry.
All because a group of "TeaBaggers" keep trying to stop ObamaCare which is legal in all 50 States, over 40 some times......they are not going to stop it. It's a done deal, signed, sealed and delivered as of today.
These "TeaBaggers" are hell bent on Mutiny and sinking this ship, but it's not going to happen, they will be rounded up and voted out.

Yes she is ...and she has the proof in the video. If you didn't watch the video, Dunlapian, I recommend that you do.

You don't how badly I hope you're right. If they are not, this Country is doomed, because they won't stop until they completely destroy it.
They are totally Insane!

I don't think that's because of the Nation shutting down, things just don't happen that quickly at the Pumps. I think it's because gas always drops this time of year, after the last Summer Holiday (Labor Day) and the end of vacation season.

Thanks Linda, Jon has a great and simple point, ObamaCare is F-N legal, and I just love him listening to him explain it.

Hey D., I just don't get the TV Marti thing. If no one in Cuba can see it, why do it? As always, I enjoy your posts. Don't always agree with them, but I sincerely see a person expressing an opinion and allowing others to express theirs. Yes, I realize your are a liberal, but you're hard not to like :) The weather here has been so nice, I am actually going to take a day off this week and go trout fishing. We have two rivers near here that are probably a couple of the nation's finest. I am going to start taking more advantage of them.
Have a great week D.
Good Morning Pete;
The reason this keeps getting passed is because of a small group of Cubans(many who consider themselves Cuban and not even Cuban-American) down in Florida, in a area called "Little Havana", mainly lead by Rep."R", Ileana Ros Lehtinen. She is a relic of the "Cold War".
