Who shut down the government?

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of hearing about the partial government shutdown.  My indifference to the situation is probably due to the fact that I haven’t been affected by the shutdown.  That said I know people have impacted by the shutdown.

So who is to blame?  Democrats blame Republicans.  Republicans blame President Obama and the Democrats.  There is plenty of blame to go around.

Dr. Thomas Sowell is a prominent black conservative columnist, though he considers himself more libertarian.  He is an economist, social theorist, political philosopher and author.  He is currently the Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.

I’ve attached a link to his column, “Who Shut Down the Government?”  It’s an interesting read and food for thought.
