So while the talking heads continue their mind numbing droning and drooling . . . Stuff happens! Or maybe it will. Or maybe it won't.

Yeah I remember Newt saying before something to the effect of " Oh a Govt shutdown, NO one will even notice because the Govt doesn't do that much for the ordinary person. Let the Govt shut down and then people will really see how useless the Govt really is."<br><br>Boy that went over well didn't it !! <br><br>Well I heard a program the other day that said they do NOT even need to drill in ANWAR... there is an active field to the west of it, and they can use directional drilling to get to the ANWAR oil without even having to crack the ground in ANWAR. The hoopla is just a political ploy to hammer the environmentalists... and the Democrats.<br><br>Also if Bush was so hot to lift drilling ban, then WHY didn't he rescend that Exec order in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, or 2006 when he had a GOP Congress that would have done likewise and given him exactly what he wanted ?? It's all political fodder !! Rovean style !! double <br><br><br><br>David (OFI)

If the guvmint did shut down, would anyone even notice? or care?<br><br>Oh, and linking gas prices to offshore drilling, in new areas, which hasn't even happened is a hoax. I wish our Rethugican politicians would stop treating me like I was a total idiot. Talk about being elitist! <br><br>
[censored] job with those continuing resolutions. I understand that they are waiting out George W. Bush, but that doesn't make it okay to send Iraq resolution after resolution to be vetoed while much more important legislation is collecting dust. Why not let Bush veto some meaningful legislation? Why not at least give the work of the country a shot?<br><br>-- Cee Bee Double-U
