Thought this was interesting from Slate, on Bachmann:

Michele Bachmann for president? Among Republicans, she's more popular than you think. - By David Weigel - Slate Magazine

Re: Potential Government Shut Down

This isn't about who is living in The House. It's about two sides that are not willing to care about the people they are supposed to be serving enough to cut the bullshit. When our country gave up on it's people and cared more about money than ever we started heading down tis slope. Some of you may feel it's this president who is at fault, I feel that he shoulders some of the blame. It's everyone that works down the street from where I do who is to blame. They all need to sit down and think about what they are doing to the american people.

The companies that are making money hand over fist yet they pay no taxes, give them a bill just like I get every paycheck and every year. Maybe that can help a little bit ?

What do I know, not too much but **** them all for the stress they are putting us through. All this standoff at High Noon bullshit is real childish.

Bachmann? Ya'll never hear the crazy shit that bitch be saying? Come on man, she will get embarrassed by Obama.

Christie, that guy is nice. Real shame he isn't running.

Re: Potential Government Shut Down

So should we start a How To Pass Time During The Government Shutdown thread ?

We are animals with competing interests and I require a different type/level of service.

Re: Potential Government Shut Down

This is ridiculous. Shutting down the government will actually cost us, the tax payers, more money in the long run. I agree that fiscal changes need to be made in Washington, but putting this many people on furlough is not fair. Not only will government employees be sitting at home, so will their contractor counterparts. Curious how this will impact the often insulated Northern VA economy.

At my job we've basically been told it doesn't look good. Prepare to get some time off.

Re: Potential Government Shut Down

Overall disappointed with the Dems not realizing its gonna take much deeper cuts to get this thing in order, but whats new? I would be knee deep in the Pentagon's budget cutting away, state and foriegn aid, government contractors, and the government workforce as a whole-2 year freeze isnt sh*t. All earmarks need to go as well.

To hell with those rich shits. They'll still get paid, but all of us contractors get dick while they play their game. They'll still get their perks while the federal employees hope they get paid for their time out. I hate politics, and the games that go along with government.

I'm walking around my building and folks are just dragging, sad as hell, talking about whether or not we'll be here monday or not. F it, I can't help what happens it's in their hands, but **** all the people that are playing with peoples lives. Make those big companies pay some taxes and stop giving money away while they send jobs elsewhere. I'm done man, I'm starting to get upset, I'll be burning about 5 tonight !

It's not just the Dems. It's the entire system.

It's a shame we depend on the government so much. How did this happen?

I agree. Compensating soldiers with an IOU to stare the barrel of the enemy gun seems OK to me. Carry on.

I also think its fine for the rich to pay a larger % but I also think that the poor also needs to pay some taxes. Everyone yells for cutting budgets but they raise hell when its their things getting cut.
Federal Corporate tax needs to be lowered from i think like 35%, 60 minutes had a good story on it a couple weeks ago. Major companies are moving offshore to lessen their tax burden. Companies that thrive on doing business in the states move to tax shelter-like countries ie Swizzland, and reduce their tax from 35% to like 15%-25%...so we because of stupid tax law miss out on trillions. It would be nice to have that money.

I'm a contractor and my wife is a Federal Employee. This is a shitty thing, I hope they work this out soon. Everyone here is expecting to be out for about a week tops, the crazy thing is I was told earlier that I have to come in Monday to turn in the albatross they call a Blackberry, only to be sent home once it's all official.
