It's the end of the government as we know it, and I feel fine.

Let the government shut down for a bit.

Really.  Let it grind to a halt and see how it falls out for a while.  It ought to serve as a nice empirical test for the Tea Party's absurd notion that public workers are overpaid fat cats; let's find out what happens when 800,000 people are furloughed.  Let's find out what that does to state and local economies.  Let's see how well it works out for consumer spending and the service industry.  The same goes for all those entitled folks nursing at the teat of Social Security, and those slackers siphoning off federal unemployment funds.  The elderly should have planned better, and the lazy should work harder; they could use a little impetus right now, to get out there and really contribute, couldn't they?

This country is getting the government it deserves.
