Minnesota shutdown

The good that I hope comes out of the MN situation is that people realize they actually enjoy government services. Unlikely, but still one can always hope.

My counterexampe comes from a news story a year or two ago covering a gathering of the tea-party faithful. 90% of the people in attendance relied to a greater or lesser extent DIRECTLY on government support (medicade-paid scooters, etc) not to mention indirect, as in they drove on public roads to get to the event which was held in a public building etc yet seemed blind to the fact that they were calling for an elimination of these benefits.

I’d like to have a happier opinion of humanity but people make it so damn difficult.
