If it was up to me, the paychecks of everyone in Congress, the Executive, and the Judiciary would be suspended during any government shutdown. Of course, only the unwashed will feel any real pain.

Repeal the 20th century? Only the 20th century? Try the 19th and 18th centuries. Start practicing because Our Betters will soon be demanding it; "Milord, Milady, Milord, Milady ..."

Agreed, Counterlight. The paychecks of the top federal officials should be stopped first when there is a government shutdown. I wanted to add, "The bastards!", but I didn't.

Counterlight, I saw the unwashed referred to as the Soap Dodgers today on another site.
