    the government, just not all of it, and not all at once.

    They have not yet finished turning the citizens against their own government and protector of our rights. But they have made considerable progress in that regard. This is not the same political climate as the last shutdown. It will be easier for the republicans to blame the Democrats for a shutdown, and have it stick.

    Here in Minnesota, blame was not overwhelmingly assigned to either party, and the MCCL is furious that the GOP compromised with the Democrat governor by dropping the toxic social bills.

    The GOP is listening to the pressure from those who are pushing them in the direction the want to go. I expect them to ignore the polls and play chicken with the economy. After all, if it tanks even more, the GOP wins.

    They are perfectly willing to sell America Short.

    Supply follows consumption. You cannot stimulate consumption by crushing the consumer. Deal with it.
