If we are shutting down the government, shut down the FBI, the Treasury Dept, Border Patrol, and the Federal Courts. Close the Federal Prisons. These people think that all the gov't does is tax then and they get nothing in return. Paul Ryan says we don't need a debt ceiling increase because we have enough money to pay the interest on T-Bills. OK. Pay the interest and nothing else. Stop and lay off ALL government workers, including Congress, SCOTUS, and the President. Lock the doors to the White House and to Congress. Turn off the electricty and the water and send them all home. Recall all diplomats and their staff and lock up the embassies. Disband the armed forces. Let people see what 'no government' really means. I am so sick of this bull s**t. Stop Social Security checks, stop paying medicare and medicaid, food stamps. Lay off all of the IRS. Close down the service academies and send the students home.
Oh, and tell Paul Ryan and the other idiots that even though there is money to pay the interest on the T-Bills there is no one to write the checks. So sorry.
