I can't help but wonder if such 'shut-downs' are the result of a complete lack
of representation and compromise by legislators.
What should it matter to the news media and welfare by a state government
shutting down? Sure, millions will suffer, that's why we are a financially
destroyed economy. Too much government doing too many things they should not be
doing on a budget that is subjective to the condition of the economy. And the
economy and funding what they are, this is the only course of action a state can
take. The disaster is not people not getting money or getting paid, its the
debts that can't be paid by state government or a balanced budget.If
the news media is upset at some welfare progams being lost, then its a precursor
of what will happen to the federal government if Obama does not get his act
together and stop spending. Obama thoulght that agreeing to budget restraints
would not mean a cap on the check book, he got a big surprise.The
american government has met its limit in debts, now its time to pay the piper
and the only ones to blame are those overspending and over borrowing. The
mentality is the death of the country, not our laws or legal system.
Really? Folks can't last 24 hours without government services before feeling
'pinched'? What a sad commentary on dependence upon government and lack of

destroyed economy because we don't have the self-discipline to manage our money.
Wise people don't spend more than they make. Foolish people, and that would
include Obama, spend ever penny they get their hands on and then got to the
payday loan store to borrow more.Sooner or later the foolish people,
and those who tolerate their behavior, have to pay the price.

God never intended us to rely on government or go back into bondage and sell
ourselves to others in what is now called employment. A garden paradise
lifestyle would supply an abundance of necessary things without the added cost
of big government payroll. God blesses those who help the poor
voluntarily; but our government forces people to pay taxes so the huge
government can control and administer those helps. Republicans are not against
helping people; it is the huge government control and expense they oppose.
Democrats keep saying that Republicans do not care about helping the poor and
some say Jesus would continue their programs; but that is political talk to win
votes they would not have if voters focused on the cost of unnecessary
government.Minnesota's government shutdown will show us we can live
through it and come out with better understanding. Our nation is trying to go
further into debt; we just need to cut out the government part of our life to
solve our problems.
The Government may be at fault, and everyone to blame, but notice that the
pressure is on the voiceless, least organized and most dependent segments of
society. There will be no immediate ground swell. Citizens that are employed
and and of comfortable means will shake their head and do nothing. What was it
that Christ said of the poor and fatherless? And what was it that if done unto
the least of these thy brothern that will be as if done unto HIM?
