    So what does it all mean?

    Here's the run down.

    Psst. No shutdown during a 'government shutdown'

    Published February 24, 2011Associated Press

    WASHINGTON Social Security checks would still go out. Troops would remain at their posts. Furloughed federal workers probably would get paid, though not until later. And virtually every essential government agency, like the FBI, the Border Patrol and the Coast Guard, would remain open.


    That's the little-known truth about a government shutdown. The government doesn't shut down.

    http//www.foxnews.com/us/2011/02/24/psst-shutdown-government-shutdown/


    From there;

    During Shutdown Workers Will Still Get Overtime

    Lastly;

    EPA to be hit hard in shutdown, could delay renewable fuel standard

    (Reuters) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will take one of the biggest hits of any federal agency if the government shuts down this week, operating with under 7 percent of its employees, according to guidance issued by the agency.


    Among those furloughed would be most workers at the Office of Air and Radiation, which is in charge of writing and implementing most of the EPA's major air pollution rules. The clock would also stop, for now, on the EPA's eagerly-awaited proposal on renewable fuel volume standards for 2014.


    The EPA said its plan for dealing with a shutdown would classify 1,069 employees, out of 16,205, as essential. These employees would continue to work if Congress fails to secure a budget deal by midnight Monday to avoid disruption to federal funding.

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    Sooooo...

    Not seeing much of a downside to the shutdown....

    Is there a way to milk this out to 2016?
    We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.
    In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.

    I don't think we want to.

    We need to do two things.

    1. Make it clear we offered alternatives and the left rejected them. Alternatives that were fair and in the peoples interest.

    2. When we do give in, don't go for the whole pie, get some thing, so it looks like Obama caved a little, but in the end, pin the whole "You own it" thing on obama for Obamacare. We can't stop it, but we can make damn sure they are held accountable for it.

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    He does own it; that's why I think it's silly that all these meaningless "votes" have been taken to try to stop it. If it's going over the cliff, don't try to slow it down. Right?

    Democrats and liberals (such as yourself) need to be told time and again so when it does blow up in your face you wont be duped into believing its all the republicans fault because we all know democrats can't take blame.
