Government shut down? The only places are shut down our agencies that benefit the American citizen. Not one single agency that exerts control over the American people have been shut down. Now they are so frightened because the people are beginning to see through their bull manure that they are going to manufacture another crisis about the debt ceiling.

What is happening now can clearly be defined by looking it up in the Webster’s dictionary as an act of terrorism being carried out by the United States government against its own people.
