    It's not that far fetched. We've had partial government shutdowns in the past.

    The Republican party already ended and the internal Democrats who call themselves Republicans are what is ending it.

    Maybe they will care that Senate Dems had bills that reopened the government but chose to do nothing with them because of their unwillingness to do anything regarding the disaster that is Obamacare.

    Define altruism as to relates to redistribution through tax policy.

    I would think that any notion of this would completely eliminate any income for anyone above a defined amount and confiscation of anything exceeding a certain value. All people living on $50,000/year.

    Bradjalina? You out there? Living on $50,000/year? How's that hit you?

    You need to read her works again.

    You and she seem to define the people who fit that category entirely differently.

    For her, those who take what is not earned fit that definition and for you, those who work to earn what they feel they need fit that definition.

    Why do you think thieves are good and workers are bad?

    Did she pay taxes and support Social Security?

    With the accompanying refusal to negotiate... all your demands met first...only then we negotiate...

    I question anyone who thinks that forcefully seizing other people's money to ease the condition of one's preferred wards and believes that somehow they're engaged in altruism.

    And upon what delusion do you base this? Hmm?

    And can we assume that your definition of what makes a person a terminal alimentary orifice is simply that they refuse to conform to your pretty vision of how other people ought to surrender their wealth and liberty to your little schemes?

    Would you care to explain how me wanting to direct what is done with the fruits of my labors makes me a moral defective, whilst demanding that I turn that decision over to an incompetent bureaucracy to address with, astounding inefficiency, largely imaginary problems makes you morally superior?

    Oh, I do wait with great anticipation to gain enlightenment through your well elucidated writing!
