Possible Meaningless Weekend Government Shutdown

The federal government could be headed for a shutdown at midnight Saturday, and the situation might not be resolved before Monday. But TSA groping and other government infringements on personal liberty will continue.

There is a strong possibility that opponents of the $1.1 trillion fiscal 2011 omnibus funding bill will require clerks to read aloud the 1,924-page Senate document. Reading the bill would start sometime on Friday, and not be finished until Sunday. Reading of the bill could be followed by another day or more of debate. Then, the Senate may not be able to vote on funding until 1 a.m. Monday, at the earliest.

If the problem runs into Monday, federal workers likely would report to work for the day but could be sent home, Senate sources said.

But, it is all show. The bill will pass and the raping of the American public will continue.
