End the shutdown

If the government shutdown continues for a long period of time, there will be civil unrest breaking out across the country.

With so many thousands of federal workers being furloughed without pay, their level of impatience, frustration and anger will begin to rise — and rightfully so. There should be a massive march on Washington by all of those workers to demand that our cast of buffoons, idiots, morons and screwballs in Congress come to an agreement with our self centered president to get the government back up and running. The American people and the economy cannot afford this major disruption in our government and its essential services. Too much is at stake for this to continue. Resolve it now, before all hell breaks loose.
