    Will there be a Government shut down tonight?

    I don't believe there will be.

    No shut down equals loss of face (and therefore loss of seats) for both parties, so there has to be a shut down.

    We have seen this scene play out so many times before. I'm not too worried about it. A bunch of political grandstanding. Must be an election coming up soon.

    Problem is that the debt ceiling debate is coming up. The Republicans took a run at this hoping that Obamacare's relative unpopularity would shield them from the same blowback they got for taking the government's financial credibility hostage in the 90s. Didn't work, so now they want to kick the can down the road so they can try something similar during the debt ceiling debate. Allowing the Republicans to take the fall now lessens their standing in that debate.

    Well, they're no more closer than they were an hour ago.

    T-26 minutes to shutdown.

    You're relatively new here, so let me explain.

    Whatever Navy predicts, the exact opposite will happen. He's so wrong on predictions that the reverse of his predictions he gives are virtually ironclad in coming true.

    Also, T-15 minutes. Last I checked the news, Boehner and Reid aren't talking. Therefore, no deal is going on. Therefore, shutdown is coming.

    I'll have to remember that...Just minutes until shut down...Boehner must have a "splitting" headache....
