Government Shut Down

I was in a restaurant last night and, when a news blurb came on the televisions on the wall about the government being shut down, there was a chorus of grumbles. Not because of the prospect of the government being shut down. It was because of the prospect of the government opening back up.

The Federal government has become the schoolyard bully that steals my lunch money and beats me up if I object. The government shut down works as an intervention to send the bastard home where it belongs. So why, exactly, would I get sad and demand that the bully return?
