The vast majority of us would not have noticed if it shut down.

Just thinking, it must have been published before. How much money would we have saved per day of shutdown? Tens, hundreds of millions? Billions?

So, not a dent in the US debt clock?

I know interest would keep rapidly spinning. But just a delay in paychecks? How disappointing.

No ShutDown..last minute deal made

I'd like to know how many people actually believed the hype and fear-mongering that went on threatening to shut down the Gonvernment?

This absolutely came as nooo surprise to me. I think I was more shocked @ those that believed the hype! They didn't let us down by waiting until the last hour. They deserve a *Golden Globe* for they're roles they each played.

The government isn't going to give up its seat of power for anything except a violent insurrection; we all know that is highly unlikely given our black budget and military funding.

They aren't going to shut down anything. They are going to scare the public into doing what they want and then make us think it was our idea, or our fault. In either case they win, we lose.

Yup. All it tells me is most people here are too young to remember this EXACT SAME SCRIPT in the late 90's with Clinton and Gingrich, or most Americans truly do have the memory of a goldfish.
