    Shutdown Pool - When does it reopen?

    Alright folks, lets have some fun.

    This thread is NOT for debating whether or not you agree with the shut down, whose at fault, etc. PLEASE park your partisanship at the door. This poll is for a bit of fun.

    When do you think the government reopens, and if you want, why? (Please see the previous request).

    Let's see who out of us manages to be good prognosticators at the end of this whole thing.

    We should be betting on whether the shutdown ends before RGIIIs knee brace comes off.
    Bye week this week.

    I say between October 7th - October 10th. A week, more or less, seems about right.

    I said Oct 15, but I sure hope it does not last that long.

    11th - 14th. Once poll numbers don't look better, negotiations will start for real.

    Voted for 15-18th since the debt ceiling will hit by Oct. 17 and I think they will have a deal made.

    Definitely October 15 - October 18. I performed a scientific experiment by closing my eyes and clicking the mouse, and that's the first choice that I hit at random. I'm sure it must be correct.
    You don't have to agree with me. You have every right to be wrong if you want.

    Re: Shutdown Pool - When does it reopen?

    It's going to end by the 6th of october, including october.

    The govt shutdown will force the hand of some party to act...
    Maybe this will be split in the republican party as some hardliners will stick to keeping it shut down while the other ones, who are less fanatic, will decide to start acting like responsible people.

    The problem is that no matter how it ends the reality is obvious. The democrat party will radicalize further to the left and the republican party will radicalize further to the right, and any moderates within each party will lose their seat in the next election if they show 'compromise'. So you will end up with a greater polarized political class than now.
