Make use of the government shutdown

It seems to me that if the government is shut down because it has no funding from Congress, the wars should all end - then and there. I for one would vote for just enough money to bring the boys and girls home safely. Let the rest of the world nuke it out. I'm sick of us trying to be the world's police force by supporting whites and rich people and fighting colored and poor people. Hell, if we're going to have the massive disaster of a shut down (or still to come, a debt default), we might as well have something good come out of it.

Oh, and by the way, while we're talking about how unbalanced our budget is, it's worth remembering that I paid NO TAXES (that's federal income taxes I'm talking about) on over $100,000 of unearned income and GE paid approximately NEGATIVE $3,000,000,000 taxes on humongous income. Of course, no one knows about that because none of the corporate media are willing to report it - especially NBC and MSNBC.

CBS reported it on "60 Minutes," then did a pirouette to turn it into a shameless piece of multi-national corporate propaganda for reducing corporate taxes to keep the country competitive.

It's interesting to note who pays the relatively small trickle of corporate taxes that are paid. It's the small and mid-sized businesses that don't have major overseas operations where they can hide their income and that can't afford high-priced Wall Street tax lawyers and accountants.

As Jimmy Carter said, it's a disgrace.
