A Government shutdown: SO WHAT!

October 1, 2013

The various pundits are all up in arms about the government shutting down. Police, Fire and all other essential services will not be there when needed, and all that.

Guess what folks? It’s all a dog and pony show. No essential services will be turned off, none, period. No, grandma will not be forced to eat dog food because of a shut off of Social Security. Veterans will not be denied medical care, or any of the other doomsday theories that are flying around. No, the prisons will not have the doors thrown open either.

So, then what is happening? What we are seeing is called direct democracy being carried out by the elected representatives of the people. The fiasco known as obamacare, a disaster beyond any doubt, is being challenged as the founders saw fit to place in our Constitution. Would you rather have an armed revolution, or widespread rioting take place. As happens in other nations all to often? Perhaps I shouldn’t ask that given the current mood of we the people.

The onerous law passed by onerous people in positions of power needs to be scrapped, completely. Perhaps followed up by a rather lengthy session of tar and feathering for those responsible for it’s passage.

Political incorrectness: must be Conservative or Libertarian

September 1, 2010

“Are you opposed to Obamacare or illegal immigration? You’re a racist. Are you opposed to gay marriage? You’re a homophobe. Did you oppose Elena Kagan’s appointment to the Supreme Court? You’re a sexist. After less than two years of complete Democrat control of government, there aren’t many Americas progressives haven’t accused of some sort of bigotry for simply having an opinion different from theirs. The politics of ‘hope’ and ‘change’ have devolved into exactly what those espousing them claimed they would end. Is this really Democrat’s plan to win votes in November?” –writer Derek Hunter

“The Democrats are going to get beaten badly in November. Not just because the economy is ailing. And not just because Obama overread his mandate in governing too far left. But because a comeuppance is due the arrogant elites whose undisguised contempt for the great unwashed prevents them from conceding a modicum of serious thought to those who dare oppose them.” –columnist Charles Krauthammer

“Those who mocked George W. Bush for openly declaring his faith in God and sharing that he prays to God for strength squawked about the horrors in Bush’s allowing his beliefs to influence his governance. Apart from the mockers’ misunderstanding of the proper intersection of faith and governance, let me pose another question. Are you more comfortable with a chief executive who, along with the overwhelming majority of Americans, humbly admits to reliance on God or one who projects the impression that he himself is messianic?” –columnist David Limbaugh

“Alan Simpson violated a taboo last week when he likened Social Security to ‘a milk cow with 310 million tits.’ But contrary to the dictionary-deprived critics who accused him of sexist vulgarity, the former Wyoming senator’s transgression had nothing to do with his use of a perfectly acceptable synonym for teat. Simpson’s real sin was ‘belittling a bedrock program,’ as the AARP put it — i.e., showing insufficient reverence for a sacred cow.” –columnist Jacob Sullum

“To those who say ‘I paid into Social Security for years and all I want is what I’m entitled to,’ I reply, ‘You’ve been robbed — get over it.’ If you want to know who robbed you, it’s called Congress. If you’re angry about that then go into the voting booth and throw them out. Meanwhile some poor young fry cook at McDonald’s is having his wages garnished to support the lifestyle of tennis playing Botox dowagers in Palm Springs. Is this right?” –venture capitalist Bill Frezza


Well, at least I think that I am in good company! 🙂
