I couldn’t understand all of this good news (unless you are French, I’ll get to that in a bit), we are at day fourteen of the Government Shutdown, and frankly I’m a bit disappointed. I was told to expect the Sky to fall, and the Earth to stop spinning by this time. Really, what are the Statist politicians doing with all of the largess we keep pouring into their trough, the least they could do would be to fulfill their promises and stop the system long enough so we could get used to the idea that life goes on without the government.
