So, the federal government is shut down! Does that mean there's no money to pay members of Congress? Does that mean that those people and bureaucrats will have to drive themselves in their own cars? Does that mean that the Senate dining room and barbershop are closed? Does that mean that those bastards can't eat any more twelve-dollar muffins?
Does it mean that our government can't send another 150 million dollars to Egypt or another 10 million to South Africa? Does it mean that our government can't control the U.S. border like they "couldn't" control it before the shutdown? Does it mean our government can't retaliate for our murdered ambassador like they "didn't" retaliate before the shutdown?
Or, does the government shutdown mean, according to Mr. Obama's press conference, women won't have birth control available and tourists can't visit Yosemite National Forest? I'll bet these are the concerns of most Americans. After all, evidently, there are millions and millions of women who enjoy sex but their husband, fiancÚ, boyfriend, co-worker or their one-night participant just won't contribute ten bucks for birth control. Then there are those who won't be able to camp out and roast weenies at their long awaited visit to Yosemite.
Of course, there's much more that can be said. I will say this; we had a presidential election just last year. At that time, all we heard was "Bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive ... Mitt Romney is a rich guy" and that impressed and swayed the majority of Americans. Well! Here we are now! Bin Laden is still dead, General Motors is still alive and Mitt Romney is still rich. So, I'm assuming the majority is still happy!
If the government is shut down, does that mean they can't tell us what to eat (Happy Meals), what to drink (sodas) and what to say? If the government is temporarily out of business, does that mean they can't continue to rape the First, Second and Fourth Amendments to the Constitution?
Does that mean, during the government shutdown, that white, heterosexual males will be equal to everyone else? If the government is out of business, does that mean we can now pray in school? Recite the Pledge of Allegiance? Eat a candy bar in school?
While the government is out of business, can we go back to saving babies and killing rats (long tailed kangaroo) instead of saving rats and killing babies?
Personally, I hope the temporary government shutdown becomes more permanent. And for those conservatives that want ObamaCare defunded, keep in mind that ObamaCare would not even exist if not for one man - John Roberts - a conservative Republican.
Until next time,
God bless everybody and God bless America!
