Default US Gov. to shut down

So the wall street journal said that by April 8th, the government will be so far in debt that it will be forced to shut down. I'm hearing this from everybody. What do you all think?

In my mind, I'm thinking, "Oh my God. Oh my God. This is not good. This is very, very bad."

Whenever we discuss the economic recession in my government class, I can't help but smile and think "I'm just glad I don't walk outside, and the big boys is firing AK rounds off."

I mean, it is damn good here. I aint got nothing to complain about.

This has been happening on and off for years. On April 8 expect them to pass a continuing resolution to keep going for a bit longer. Even if they shut down, it'll be only nonessential services and only for a few days. But the gist of the story is correct.

"He told a room full of reporters that he forced the shutdown because Clinton had rudely made him and Bob Dole sit at the back of Air Force One... Newt had been careless to say such a thing, and now the whole moral tone of the shutdown had been lost. What had been a noble battle for fiscal sanity began to look like the tirade of a spoiled child. The revolution, I can tell you, was never the same."

From the 1995 shut down. Lawl.

So where does that leave our troops overseas?


Besides unsupervised with enough weapons to level a good sized nation?

@Devourment- I'm well aware of this. This has been a huge story in all of my classes for the whole week.

@Isard- That was my first concern, I kid you not.

I was just joking. They can get themselves home if the government does collapse. Chain of command, best invention humanity has ever devised. Carriers are commanded by the most honorable and respected men in the US Navy.

This isn't going to happen. You do realize that right?

I again ask, forced to shut down by whom?

Its not that the Gov will shut down, but The Gov may collapse.... When? Probably not tomorrow, but maybe between 1-5 years?
Educate yourself people
Google: hyperinflation & fiat currency (+ the national debt is also a big player)
And of course you would never hear any thing of this sort on the news or mainstream news media, because they are liars to us the public & are deceiving & want to make us think everything is ok, & safe.

Spending will have to be cut eventually. Unfortunately, few in Congress even have the guts to try and make any worthwhile cut to entitlement spending. If they do, they will face the ire of some angry demographic or lobbyist group.

I had the exact opposite impression. They blow things out of proportion and want you to keep believing that its always the end of the world so you keep watching their news. Unfortunately among the general public, they are succeeding.
