Now, please, NOBODY plug it back in to the outlet.
I'll second that!
Here Hair!Close that fucker down. Do a Belgium. Those people Do Not Need More Money To Spend, they Need to Spend Less.
God Bless the Sane!(He takes care of small childern and drunks. The rest must fend for themselves, meaning tough decisions at times like these.)
Shutting down the government would result in the biggest economic boom, surge in job creation, and period of real wealth creation that the nation has ever experienced in its history.
Shutting down the Federal Reserve, preferably with arrests of Banksters for Treason, would be icing on the cake.
Bread and Circuses.
Except that congress is the circus and they're giving all the bread to the Tribe.
PULL THE GOVERNMENT
You mean they want to cut the program that hands China our electric car technology? Now the Chinese will have to work to steal it, aka "Los Alamos parlay".
Geez, just what is this world coming to?
That wasn't theft really, It was the Clinton Fairness Doctrine of leveling the field. He put Richardson in charge of the nuclear braintrust... come on!
Dont forget Al Gore rounds out the brain trust with his bhudist spiritualness. You have to have spirit if you have the initiative to invent the internet, advocate cap and trade, and at the same time run HVAC on a private home that MTV cribs would love to showcase.
It would be clever sabotage on our part to give it to them.
MUST WATCH... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wq2pGd9ViUM
It would result in Mad Max until local strongmen arose, after that China in the 1920's with a dose of "The Postman" thrown in....
Hey, but I am all for arresting a few bankers for treason....
Why Mad Max, my local and State Government are running just fine. What do we need the Feds for again? I like how Texas does it. The Congress meets once every 2 years for 6 weeks. That's almost 6 weeks to many, but a great place to start.
Lets see how a few brass hats act when they aren't "needed" anymore. Or when some state decides a pipeline should be paying higher tolls....
The government shut down under Reagan and everyone just went about their business.
Yeah, how many SS checks were missed? How long till the 46 million on Food stamps start to get "restless"...
Who gives a fuck, they can find employment during all of that spare time they were using to collect welfare. If they get out of hand, just shoot the useless bastards.
Took the words out of my mouth.
Who gives a fuck
Don't shoot them. Let them sell chick lets like the Mexican girls at the border
Actually they would probably find employment by puting a bullet in your brainpan to get your wallet. Be careful what you ask for!
True dat! There is no employment. I was at a job fair where there were no decent employers and I was BS'ing with a guy who was trying to come up with a scheme to rob people at the casino! And, for the gun toting morons on here, I don't think your attacker will announce his arrival! Good luck to all!
If you were goofing off at a job fair and hanging out with this maniac, who was talking loudly about robbing and killing people, I think I may have figured out why you're having a hard time finding a job...
Then I suggest you start with people like me.
I had to finally come to the conclusion a couple years ago that, in fact, they were giving me a check so I didn't go off somebody in a rage.
"Yeah, how many SS checks were missed? How long till the 46 million on Food stamps start to get "restless"..."
So is it blackmail or extortion?
Yes... it is a just a plot to make *your* life a living hell...
Jeezus... just get over it and move on.
"Jeezus... just get over it and move on."
lol...my life or nanny-statism? ;-)
Your life.... SS and Food Stamps are the least of your problems with the gubbmint....
"The Postman".....the book by David Brin or the movie with Kevin Costner?
The movie..... yeah, I know, but there has be something else besides Mad Max
Who needs a movie? This shit is as real as it gets!
Actually, Mad Max may be more realistic if Peak Oil plays out.
The Postman doesn't work because the Postal Service will implode long before the collapse. :)
And Kevn Costner will be too busy growing gills and surfing Water World to bother with ressurrecting the Postal system.
hmm...US consumption at 1997 levels and the tards around here still think it's a monetary problem or that we can just dig up more oil lol.
We are IN the peak oil crisis. It's as plain as day and "sustained global recession" is the precise verbiage I used to describe the outcome of it.
Welcome back nuclear lol
The plot hole was that if people were starting to evolve gills, the world was about to become a paradise again. Dry land, or no.
What? No 'Water World'?
Now that's some funny shit right there !
Yeah.... Florida in about 100 years :)
Ah, yes! The old fashion SHIT AND FAN PROBLEM. I smell change in the air.....
Ja Wohl! Mein Fuhrer!
You've got that backward, Sunshine. Shut down the Fed FIRST (and replace fiat with commodity money), and you've just castrated the government. Two nuts with one stone.
Not unless you castrate the military, nsa, cia, fbi, dhs, batfe, cbp, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc.......
shut down the MASS MEDIA as well, because they continue to brainwash majority of the population... the current mass media is part (probably the most important) of the elite's agenda.
I'd be psyched to see a complete gummit shutdown, but the 60 million or so Americans who are completely dependent on their "civil unrest" subsidies might be kinda pissed.
Aw, hell, it's probably more than 60 million.
I don't think it'd make sense to call the outcome an economic boom.
You'd best start shooting with me, then. People with nothing to lose lose _it_.
ROTFL...no it wouldn't. The government and its debt IS the economy now.
I'm sorry to say, shutting down the gov't doesn't do anything to cut spending. Use yourself as a (not identical) analogy. If you stop working, do the bills stop? Ya still gotta pay the mortgage, the electricity, the grocery bills, etc.
There may be some people who don't get paid with a shutdown, but they get backpay when the federal government reopens. And whether you like or not, it will reopen.
We've got a broken Congress, we have a 7-3 Fed soon going to 5-5 therefore a broken Fed, a broken Presidency, a broken EU, and it is fair to say a broken consumptive model that gives capitalism a black eye, all being run through a broken financial system jimmied up on inflated books that don't mark assets to market.
Where to start?
A new super simple tax code - junk all the deducations and lower tax rates across the board. A progressive flat tax would be nice. Elections not funded by organizations like unions, corporations, or PACs. Media that investigates, researches and reports - not entertaining jingoism. Add to the list as you like. There is much to be done.
Take money creation away from the banks & fed & give it to the "free market" (more or less). Why not? The "free market" does a great job of producing everything else. And will do much, much better when the guvmunt gets out of the way.
