Government Shutdown: What's good about it?

Another view on the recent US Government shutdown. What if we really could run leaner. Would we be able then to pay our bills?

Fall 2013 US Government Shutdown

We are now in day three of the shuttest down the US Government has ever been. Good that it is the END of the season on most National Parks, but who is going to feed the animals in the zoos? What if everyone just went to work anyway and kept it going for a month til the congress could get it together? That isn't going to happen because most of us live paycheck to paycheck and if there is no paycheck, there is no gas, no lunches, no new pantyhose, nothing. Personally, I think the congress is stalling another agenda.

Shutdown Stalls Debtor Agenda

If you don't think we're in trouble and that our debtors are asking for certain laws, restrictions and mandates on the American people then you haven't been paying very close attention. But then, this is America and we are a wild people and clever like a FOX. Our Government answering machines are going to be saying, "I'm sorry, the Government Agency you have called has been shut down temporarily."

The 'Machine' which is our Government

Having been aboard the 'Good Ship Legislature' a number of tours, I've witnessed the gearing up and shutting down of the 'machine' which is our lawmaking body on a state level. ( Hey Mama Idaho! ) Perhaps that is what we will hone down to - you know, host a federal legislative session in a different marble hall each year. How would a 'bare bones' US Government operate?

States would continue their annual or bi-annual sessions deciding their own issues without fed mandate or money. At that point perhaps international tourism becomes more interesting as each state develops their own points of interest and grand tour services and accommodations according to the personalities which are now and will continue to be uniquely their own.

The New World of Peace

The New World of Peace is upon us. We will be content in the moments if we concentrate on the nows. Worry is negative prayer and sends energy to the darker side of the coin. Send Love and Light to the Earth, Your Family and Friends, Leaders, all beings. Stop the winds with your mind while you sit quietly resting your eyes, see in your minds 'eye' a world where there is only a peaceful and cooperative nature with humans a part of it, not apart from it. Thank You.

I find it disgusting that congress is still getting paid during the shut down, they should NOT be paid!
