Since during the Carter fiasco the government shut down 57 times and nothing major happened, I would say the government shutting down once during Obama's tirade of failure isn't going to create anything other than show the people all the empty threats of the left were meaningless and just used to scare old people as usual.

The fate of the nation is in the hands of the barons of brinksmanship.
A king would take their head and call it 'work place violence'. The leadership must accept this as the 'cost of doing business.'

A government shut down is a big deal!
If people realize just how well things work without a huge, wasteful, inept organization filled with underworked and overpaid fat-azzed pension chasers, it is likely that the American People would want the essential functions that won't be affected, rather than the billions of tons of crap that we currently "enjoy" being spewed out by the Feds.
The Pentagon is no different.
They are also hogs at the trough.

. T-Party members in Congress like Eric Cantor and the Canadian born, Ted Cruz, are sponsored by Billionaires like the Koch brothers; they are poised to make huge profits if the US Government defaults on its debts. They have incentives to cause turmoil in the US Financial Market. They've invested in companies positioned to make a fortune whenever Congress manipulates the Financial Market with their votes.

. So, Eric Cantor and other GOP crooks in Congress can vote a certain way to specifically improve the value of their bank accounts at the detriment of the American people...

Do you work with the CBO?

. Can you name those branches of the government we can do without?

. If you can't, you'll confirm our suspicion that you are just another ditto-head without the ability to think independently....

. Talk-radio hosts talk loud and sound convincing, but they are no expert on anything, except at spouting divisive b.s.....

Yes, continuous lies like Obamacare has a "death panel"
. Lies like Obama hates white people but loves his white mom, grand parents and his white childhood friends

. Lies like Obama was born in Kenya

. Lies like mortgage loans given to people of color in America caused the international Market crash under Cheney...

And the list goes on!
Here is a list of Fox News lies:http://www.addictinginfo. org/2013/04/07/fox-has-absolut ely-no-journalistic-ethics-and -heres-a-long-list-of-their-li es-videos/

GOP T-bagging crooks stand to gain substantial sums of money if they vote making their racist base thinking they are hurting Obama:

"Now in a stunning revelation, Salon reports that Cantor may have a vested interest in making sure the government defaults on its loans–he stands to gain substantial sums of money if it does.

According to Salon, Cantor is invested in a mutual fund “whose performance is directly affected by debt ceiling brinkmanship.”

One difference, Scarey, is that "Obamacare" is the law of the land, which you and your troglodyte colleagues are trying to sabotage.

"According to Salon"..........LMAO the biggest commie site in the world. YOu're going to have to do better than that, dumbass. They're the ones who also said Bush had a 98,000 acre ranch in Paraugay where he would rule the new world order. Hilarious.

Is there a worse “news” site on the internet than Salon.com ? OK, you’re right, maybe Mother Jones. However, no other liberal site has the mind-melting “journalistic credibility” that Salon does and thus the ability to carry forth progressive propaganda in such a lofty manner.

You fall for anything in your drug induced coma's.
