Government Shutdown Day 16: This Time It May Actually Be Over

Within hours, the Senate, and then, the House of Representatives will vote on a measure to end the 15-day partial government shutdown, and raise the debt ceiling. Passage vy both houses of congress and signing by the president prior to midnight tonight, in order to beat the self-imposed, phony "deadline" is all but certain. Purportedly, the measure will keep the government operating through January 15, 2014 and increase the borrowing authority of the United States through February 7, 2014, which, for all intents and purposes won't conflict with the NFL schedule, as Super Bowl XLVIII is on February 2nd, so keep eating your Cheetos and watching the games. Panem et circenses.

Apparently, it's over. A great deal has been learned form the experience and from other readings. More will be exposed explained in subsequent posts.

Knowledge is power. Never, ever forget that.

Here's an excellent video from the Hidden Secrets of Money series that explains some of what you need to know about why the government and the Federal Reserve are acting unconstitutionally and stealing from Americans every second of every day, and, maybe, most importantly, why the debt ceiling must always be raised, lest the entire fraudulent, debt-based monetary system collapse:
