Ok the Govt shutdown is going to cause a negative impact on the US economy. If it goes on for an extended amount of time could cause recession ! Is that the goal of the dems or is the pride from both left and right and a non compliant attitude from our officials going to crush our country and not a threat from terrorist in another country. We are shooting our own selves in the foot.

What the Hell are you thinking !!

The gubment shutdown is quite small in scope. 80 percent of the gov is already funded. This wont sink the economy. The debt bombs will though. we have 20 trillion in public debt and 27 trillion in private debt. The subprime auto loans are going to blow up and now they are allowing subprime mortgages again. There will be a reckoning eventually.

Watched Robin Meade this morning and jotted down a couple effects of govt shutdown:

Stalling US growth
Economic reports delayed
School lunch scaled back
Jobless claims skyrocket
DC ride share drop
Public transit could loose aid
Federal courts lacking $
Delta loses $25 mil
Cyber security at risk
Research delays
US credit rating at risk
Civil cases delayed
FOIA requests delayed
USDA loans on hold
FTC paused
FBI recruiting hampered
NTSB investigations halted
Wildfire prep work halted
Coast Guard unpaid
FCC shut down
Govt unpaid $5mil water bill
Marriage licenses delayed
IRS understaffed
EPA inspections delayed
Farming guidance delayed
Small business loans delayed
E verify shut down

Not to mention Flight unions air traffic controllers pilots and flight attendants. Can you imagine if they stopped what that would cause.

But hey we are 10 days away from Super Bowl and cool commercials

¿Que?
Economic reports delayed
whatevs.
School lunch scaled back
good, that shit's nasty
Jobless claims skyrocket
¿Que? I don't think furloughed federal workers can claim unemployment...
DC ride share drop
so, a bunch of butt fuckers violating their liability insurance contract are having a harder time carting around self-important dickwads for $12?? OK
Public transit could loose aid
im good with it
Federal courts lacking $
I'm very much OK with this
Delta loses $25 mil
Delta is losing money because they suck, not because a tiny portion of the country can't go on vacation right now
Cyber security at risk
ummmm, no
Research delays
research into what?
US credit rating at risk
holy fuck.....I literally can't even right now......wtf
Civil cases delayed
meh
FOIA requests delayed
yeah, mildly irritating
USDA loans on hold
what part of the Constitution says 'thou shalt be guaranteed loans to grow fucking corn that we'll force people to put in their gas'?
FTC paused
the FTC hasn't done anything of significance in at least 10 years
FBI recruiting hampered
FBI recruiting is fucked because the FBI treats anyone without a Master's or better, from an Ivy league school, like complete shit.
NTSB investigations halted
mildly irritating
Wildfire prep work halted
mildly irritating
Coast Guard unpaid
this shit is actually pretty fucked up, poor puddle pirates...
FCC shut down
im good with it
Govt unpaid $5mil water bill
who the fuck is the government buying water from?
Marriage licenses delayed
marriage licenses aren't issued by the feds....try again
IRS understaffed
i peed my pants a little because this makes me so happy
EPA inspections delayed
Corporate shills
Farming guidance delayed
heres your farm guidance....don't depend on the government
Small business loans delayed
Still nothing in that old wrinkled document about a right to low interest loans from the government
E verify shut down
nope, DHS told those niggas to get back to work

Not to mention Flight unions air traffic controllers pilots and flight attendants. Can you imagine if they stopped what that would cause.
pilots and flight attendants aren't federal employees?
if the ATCs staged a walk out, I would laugh so hard I'd shit my pants. That would light a fucking fire under DCs ass.

But hey we are 10 days away from Super Bowl and cool commercials

If I could, I'd avoid me too.

I may be wrong (I usually am), but for me the shutdown is showing how many excess people are employed by the government. I hope somebody is making a list of how many people we can do without.

Oh, and I agree with @karlvv, our insane debt levels are the big danger, not the shutdown.
