We are running $1.5 trillion serial deficits, and the clowns in Washington are arguing over $30 billion in cuts. That is less than 1% of federal spending. They are watching a tsunami coming, and they are arguing over what bathing suit to wear.
The shutdown is a farce. They will close the national parks just to show the public that they can screw up people's vacation plans if they don't get a blank check to sell our children into debt slavery.
They may shut it down for a few days until the couch potatoes start complaining because CNN told them to. Then they'll come to a compromise which does absolutely nothing to address the fiscal crisis.
And when QE2 is done, if the Chinese don't want to buy our debt any more to fund the reckless spending, we'll have QE3.
Shut it down for a year! Our parents and grandparents lived without an omni-intrusive federal government and 10% GDP deficits. Let's give it a try.
