Shut it all down

Here in Arizona, you know we're about to miss a great opportunity:
Gov. Jan Brewer wants her agency chiefs to figure out what state services will continue -- and which will not - if there is no budget when the new fiscal year begins July 1.
The article goes on to assure readers that the state will maintain "essential" services, no matter the outcome of budget negotiations. Presumably, said essential services involve the funding of a contract on former Governor Janet Napolitano.

But wouldn't it be great of we just shut the damned state government down, whole hog? We could spin off state properties as independent businesses, or sell them off to private-sector operators.

Really, how often do we get this close to such a liberty-enhancing opportunity?

We have a similar opportunity here in New York, with the Senate deadlocked and refusing to meet together, like a bunch of elementary school kids.

What if ... they never passed another law?

Naomi Klein was right!

We are disaster capitalists! :)
