What's Your Take the Sad State of Affairs in Washington?

This has nothing to do with agronomics, but it impacts us all and what we do. It's what's going on in Washington.

The partial shutdown of the federal government enters its seventh day today. The countdown to a government debt default is in 10 days.

According to, a default is widely regarded as a much bigger economic disaster than the shutdown of nonessential services. President Barack Obama has demanded that Congress raise the debt ceiling, and avoid default, without conditions.

But House Speaker John Boehner said Sunday there will be no debt limit increase, and no end to the partial shutdown, unless President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats negotiate with House Republicans.

I classify myself as a moderate Republican, and I have to say I'm ashamed of the Republican party in Washington -- not to let off the Democrats so easily, though. They're all acting like children — little children.

What do you think of the situation in Washington?
