A lot of people wonder what a government shutdown would be like. I think a lot more people wonder what a government running properly would be like.

Glenn Beck announced that he is ending his daily show on Fox News. He didn’t want to end it. He just ran out of conspiracy theories.
If the government shuts down, 800,000 federal workers could get a call saying they’re “non-essential.” Wouldn’t it be weird if 800,000 people got the same call that I get from my dad every day?

The shutdown would mean that all non-essential workers would stop coming to work. I’m OK with that. Why do we even have non-essential workers?
Donald Trump said he can’t make a decision on running for president until this season of “Celebrity Apprentice” is over. That may be the best excuse ever for postponing a run for the presidency.
Trump is doing well in the polls. He’s in second place among Republican voters. Among tea partyers, he’s in first place. Although to be fair, in the tea party poll, Chuck Norris is in second place and third place is an AK-47.
