I have heard rumors about stating of a potential government shutdown on October 1'st. Has anyone else heard of this or have any news stories on it ?

UPDATE - Just kind of a update on what i have learned. There is a POTENTIAL Government Shutdown to happen on October 1st over Big Brother throwing a temper tantrum on Republicans not wanting to pass Obama care. And that Republicans are demanding that the demo's hold off on Obama care until it is revised to reduce the spending planned in it. As of now no side has showed signs of backing down. And that a government shut down just means it cuts off all but necessary public services (I.E Police, Firemen, Medic's, etc. etc.) While this may not effect most, for families with active duty military and Contractors, they will be temporarily laid off until the dispute is settled. If this is true or not i cannot say, simply stating what I have been hearing a increasing amount of. Regardless, get ready people, Scenario 1 is on our doorstep. Let's just pray it stays there and doesn't advance.

My answer to that question is Yes Please.....
I'm with ya but don't see it happenin... Just a scare tactic.. All they will do is just give it another extention and blame each other for not coming to an agreement.. Just a bunch of douchebags at work!!

Smoke and mirrors. Even if things "shut down" for a few days it will be back up and running with back pay for the poor bureaucrats that missed out in no time.

Happened when Clinton was in office. I was overseas in the military and remember very clearly nobody getting paid for a while.

Am I right in thinking this is supposed to hit on October 1rst? Press doesn't seem to be talking much about a date.

Ever been in a walmart at midnight? I was once and asked the cashier what the heck was going on because the place was PACKED at 11:45 with people shopping for food. At 12:01 EVERY person in that store rushed to the checkout. The cashier told me the food stamp money gets deposited in their accounts at EXACTLY 12:00. And they all know it.

Sooooo, what happens when they all hit the checkouts nation wide at midnight and their free money isn't there???????

It is nothing but scare tactics. Their simply looking to stir the fear so people overlook what they do again. Either way, I could care less if the government shuts down. I'll adapt and continue on.

Sooooo, their confident only Region III is going to be a problem? Or confident only Region III is worth saving? :D

They seriously have "vegetarian" MRE's?!? BLEAGH! I personally like the "beef" stew with the teeny bottle of hot sauce, and freeze dried ice cream! ;)

Make no mistake though. If those people don't get their free food money, things WILL HTF!! CRIME SPREES!!!

If something big enough happens, it will be chaos. I can still put my bullets where I want them. I guess maybe I'll get some moving target trigger time in coming up. Personally, I still love Chili Mac Mre's. :mrgreen:

I was in the process of coming up with something equally pithy but you beat me to it.

It will be interesting to see if our government shills keep posting here when they aren't getting paid to do it.
Yes, because only the things people will actually miss will be furloughed. All the things we can do without(or would love to be stopped) will continue to be bankrolled. It is how they drive fear into people!

If Obama owned a diner that was losing money he'd lay off the cooks and hire more wait staff.

We should cut Cogress and Seante work weeks to 29 hours.

Thanks for the heads up, I wasn't aware that we actually had a functioning government!
