My thoughts on the U.S. government near shutdown

After having just read the New York Times article headlined "Shutdown Near, No Sign of Compromise," I am thoroughly disgusted with Congress. What people don't realize is that Congress is bicameral - it is composed of the House of Representatives and the Senate for a combined total of 435 legislators - legislators whom control and enact law for over 300 million Americans.

This is extremely disproportionate and it's immature and irresponsible for this small group of elected "leaders" to argue when the nation is at stake. By this I mean that even more job losses will potentially occur because if an agreement is reached as to which federal agencies will shut down, the fact is that some federal agencies will shut down.

Here's an interesting North Dakota economic article

I am Californian. Maybe all Californians should move to North Dakota to have a shot at the American Dream. This article is written by Carla Fried, a CBS money watch reporter, so I'm sure she double-checked all of her facts. Enjoy!
