Last time the government shut down, the executive branch was fully staffed and competent. The was communication between the White House and the various departments and agencies along with the general consensus that the government functions were important both through the shutdown and after. None of this is true in the slightest this time around. A prime example is that the CDC has received no instruction on how to proceed. Managed this way the real world impacts will be less mitigated and large impacts of the unfolding consequences will emerge later to the complete surprise of the grifters and ideologues put in charge.

Republican intransigence, infighting, grandstanding, dishonor, and cowardice has this shutdown falling somewhere between the weeks and months range.

Republicans, lacking any shame, will still try to raise money off of this.

---Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven does not rule out military intervention against the escalating crime perpetrated by the many Muslim gangs in the country, which de facto means that Sweden would enter into a state of civil war.

"It's not my first choice to deploy the military, but I'm prepared to do what it takes to ensure that the serious organized crime goes away," he said after the party leadership debate in the parliament yesterday, SVT reports.---
