    The last time there was a shutdown in 1995, did anyone notice?

  2. Ted A says:

    Not enough of the FED was shut down for long enough to do any good.

    No casualties by now.

      Strange group, but this is a bit different type of government shut-down. Our government will still be in place, but there will be no funds allocated to facilitate their functions.

    …thought the Peewee Herman hairdo was an improvement

    The Government shut down was followed by another week off for a blizzard in January 1996.

    So when >93% of non-military gummint workers get furloughed as “non-essential”, doesn’t that pretty much answer the question?

    The puff-boys quibbling over $61Bn or $33Bn or $15Bn in “cuts” for FY-2011 only addresses less that 0.5% of the $1,600Bn of DEFICIT SPENDING in the FY budget. This is all on top of another $1,200Bn in so-called “paid-for” spending.

    jeez-loo-wheeze!
