Having seen this “Government Shutdown” / “Fiscal Cliff” / “Debt Default” drama so many times I am not phased by the fake drama.
We all know the script and how it is going to end.
I wonder why the media makes such a big deal? We know nothing of importance actually closes during a “Government Shutdown.” The courts don't close, the jails don't close, the airports don't close, border security doesn't stop, the FBI/CIA/NSA don't close, the military doesn’t walk off the job….
The media hype --and it will only start to get worse-— is like the stupid media on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving going to an airport and reporting how busy it is like this is news or something unexpected.
My suggestions is that the media report the event for what it is -— stupid politicians just wanting attention and nothing more.
PREDICTION — When a deal is finally reached Senators like Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rand Paul (R-KY) will get some attention by threatening to filibuster in the Senate unless they get some stupid vote on something they want. The vote will lose 98-2 probably.
This is so predictable and so uninteresting. My suggestion would be for the media to spend more time on much more important issue, but always remember that what we call the “main stream media” is really just someone’s FOR PROFIT BUSINESS. Yes there are YouTube Channels and websites that put journalism over profits, but the big entities that drive everything (Fox / MSNBC / CNN) are all FOR PROFIT BUSINESS.
Anyway, please vote in the poll….
