The End Is Nigh? Well Maybe Kinda Sorta?
You Buy Into That?
We know about the doom and gloom the most inexperienced President to ever sit in the Oval Office has been feeding religiously to his low information sheeple. Have we been through this before? You bet your bippy we have and things generally keep humming along despite our government, not because of it.
Sure the media will hunt for hard luck stories about the injustice of having a shutdown. They did the same thing during the sequestration. Have you noticed how we've adjusted to the terms of Obama's sequestration? how much drama do you want to save for your Mama? Just factor in the fact that Obama and the government works maybe 5 days a week already but not normally more than that, Weekends are for golf and various assorted pleasures. He was golfing this past Saturday, the US Senate took the weekend off and the House of Representatives worked. Now plug in the political party bent to those three. Get my drift?
Isn't it amazing that the rest of our lives will proceed whether there is a federal government shutdown or not. As Homer would say, "Oh DUH."
Have you become so desensitized that you like to be lied to? some of you don't remember the shutdown of 1996 so lets take a walk down memory lane. the federal government closed down and the economy kept going right along. Of course, it wasn't in as bad a shape then because Obama wasn't at the helm for 5 years. It's amazing how "non-essential" becomes so apparent when they aren't there sucking up tax payer dollars. Maybe the lesson that Americans learned back then, and need a refresher course on now, is that we can handle our own affairs with big Brother, sometimes even better!
Another quick history lesson before we go on. I can show you the video but I'll save it. That shutdown was before, not after Bill Clinton proclaimed, "The era of big government is over." Many of you youngsters were immersed in your mother's apron strings when Clinton came out with that.
Obama and his Democratic minions cried the sky is falling playing Chicken Little back when we experienced the graphic below. It was a false alarm then whether you want to admit it or not. Our economy kept humming right along. how gullible can you be to swallow the crap that Obama wants to read off of his teleprompter. Sequester was his idea though he still wants to blame everyone but himself for such stupidity. He wasn't going to compromise then either. So you see what you now see. Or do you?
Reality? Pelosi just proclaimed on national TV that the federal cupboard was bare and there just weren't any more cuts that can be made. A government shutdown will prove once again just how much of a lunatic that woman is. Now if that were so, which it isn't, then how can whole departments and 800,000 federal workers be proclaimed "non-essential?" Are they only essential when the polls open?
People's feelings usually get hurt when reality slaps them up side the head. How can my job be "non-essential" I am sure they ask themselves. Well, what does your job produce is my question. Flipping the coin and looking at the other side yields a different perspective. This particular shutdown cozies up to the next fight - the debt ceiling. You have to understand the political mind of these pick pockets to get it. Now the debt ceiling, either raising it or lowering it, will have an impact on financial markets. That is a truth.
How can economy be damaged much more than it has been by bad policy? That is indeed a serious question. So factor in another coincidence which probably isn't a coincidence. The day of the shutdown in question is the same day that Obamacare really kicks in. That is the bad parts of Obamacare. Don't forget all the goodies were front loaded. Obamacare is widely despised by the American public and that upsets Obama since his name is attached to it. Too bad so sad Barack.
Time for a video.
Red Lines Again?
So Obama says he won't negotiate huh? He draws "red lines" does he? He has become a laughing stock in this country and the world. Let Obama continue on being the fool many of us see him to be. Obamacare is a train wreck coming off the tracks. Many of us knew that when they shoved it down our throats by passing a law of such volume without reading it. but, but, but he said he was going to heal the planet and the sick, raise the dead and make the oceans recede. And did you really believe that from a man who has never held a real job?
It matters not who is to blame because all of them pontificating up there are. Many want to continue to be a party hack. I gave that up long ago myself realizing that those pick pockets are just that. I have to agree that the more important question may be, ' WHO DESERVES THE CREDIT?" My bet?
Obama always tries to scarf up credit where credit to him is not due. While at the same time placing blame anywhere besides where it is due. That would usually be himself.
The best thing we can do right now is to SHUT ER DOWN!
QUOTE OF THE DAY: "The fact that the Senators aren't here and Harry Reid is off somewhere is all the evidence that you need to know that they want to shut down the government."
