Seriously, why are people on the Left suddenly batcrap-crazy? Oh, right, it’s not “suddenly”.
They have been stupid since Sanders lost the nomination.
They were already crazy with “Socialism”… because, and I kid you not, I have heard them say things like “Socialism? Yeah, that’s about being Social”. Yes, some of them believe Socialism is “Being Social” and “Helping people get money” (from the Rich, apparently).
Actually, truth be told, only a very small percentage of Millennials even have a clue what Socialism actually is, and many of them simply like the term. They don’t understand that it’s a form of Government that requires all business and production to be RUN by the government. Nope. Not. At. All. (http://www.nationalreview.com/article/435326/bernie-sanders-millennials-socialism-what-exactly)
Now… here’s an even deeper conundrum… How many know what Bernie Sanders truly stands for? A “Democratic Socialist”?
A favorite tactic employed by leftists is to describe the Nazis as “right wing,” with Adolf Hitler, their leader, as the grand leader of this “right wing” movement. Rewriting history is pretty common for leftists, as their history is littered with injustice (the KKK was founded by Democrats, did you know?). Injustices they claim to fight against today. Awkward. (https://www.louderwithcrowder.com/myth-busted-actually-yes-hitler-was-a-socialist-liberal/)
Truth is, Hitler was a Social Democrat, technically a “Liberal”. Liberalism in America is a tiny bit different that it was then, but not significantly so. How does any of this connect to the title, “Killers for Bernie”?
Easy, the man who shot Congressman Steve Scalise was a Bernie operative, a marxist, with a gun, and with a list of targets for assassination.
The REAL Fascists in this country are the AntiFa people, Bernie Sanders Supporters and the unhinged Hilary Clinton supporters.
NAZI stands for National Socialist German Workers‘ Party. Associate it with Leftists, Marxists, Unions, Thugs, BLM, Soros, Clinton and Obama. While there aren’t really any Germans involved in the US, there are all those others….and remember this, watch your backs.
Well, I have a question. Actually, several questions.
Why are they on the watch list?
If they are on the watch list, why?
If they are on the watch list, why are they working for the DHS?
If they are on the watch list, do they have clearances? If so, why?
If they are terrorists, connected to terrorism, are Muslim then why haven’t they 1) been fired, 2) had clearances revoked, 3) Named, 4) deported?
If they are Americans, what form of due process was used to place them on a no-fly list?
If they are actually adjudicated then why can they buy guns?
You see, it takes a few questions to get to the meat of the matter but apparently no one is asking questions, are they? Especially not this President.

At least 72 employees at the Department of Homeland Security are listed on the U.S. terrorist watch list, according to a Democratic lawmaker.
Rep. Stephen Lynch (D., Mass.) disclosed that a congressional investigation recently found that at least 72 people working at DHS also “were on the terrorist watch list.”
“Back in August, we did an investigation—the inspector general did—of the Department of Homeland Security, and they had 72 individuals that were on the terrorist watch list that were actually working at the Department of Homeland Security,” Lynch told Boston Public Radio.
“The [former DHS] director had to resign because of that,” he said.
DHS continues to fail inspections aimed at determining the efficiency of its internal safety mechanisms, as well as its efforts to protect the nation.
Lynch referred to a recent report that found the Transportation Security Administration, which is overseen by DHS, failed to stop 95 percent of those who attempted to bring restricted items past airport security.
“We had staffers go into eight different airports to test the department of homeland security screening process at major airports. They had a 95 percent failure rate,” Lynch said. “We had folks—this was a testing exercise, so we had folks going in there with guns on their ankles, and other weapons on their persons, and there was a 95 percent failure rate.”
Lynch said he has “very low confidence” in DHS based on its many failures over the years. For this reason, he voted in favor of recent legislation that will tighten the vetting process for any Syrian refugees applying for asylum in the United States.
“I have very low confidence based on empirical data that we’ve got on the Department of Homeland Security. I think we desperately need another set of eyeballs looking at the vetting process,” he said. “That’s vetting that’s being done at major airports where we have a stationary person coming through a facility, and we’re failing 95 percent of the time.”
“I have even lower confidence that they can conduct the vetting process in places like Jordan, or Belize or on the Syrian border, or in Cairo, or Beirut in any better fashion, especially given the huge volume of applicants we’ve had seeking refugee status,” Lynch said.
Why do you need to own an ugly black rifle capable of shooting 2-4 rounds per second with the mere pull of a trigger?
Why do you need to be able to buy a thousand rounds?
Why do you NEED high capacity magazines?
I have a better question. Why do you ask?
Seriously though, when I am asked these questions, sometimes it is difficult getting through to the people who ask. They are asking the questions rhetorically and do not require, nor even WISH you give an answer. In fact, they want you to splutter and hem and haw, and feel threatened and guilty.
Why are there gun control laws to begin with? Why are there people on a no-fly list who can purchase guns? Why are there people who should be in mental institutions who can purchase weapons?
These are the better questions.
The BEST question though is. if criminal commits a crime using a gun, say, murder, why isn’t he adjudicated as a murderer and executed? Why aren’t people who are mentally defective put in mental institutions?
So many questions, so few answers, right?
Let’s look at the last questions first.
Because people believe that folks who are mentally deranged shouldn’t be placed in institutions. Do-gooders for the past hundred years have fought to remove people from mental institutions and indeed, shut down such places. The same people fought to have “privacy” added to medical records.
Now they wish to reverse this trend. They would love to know if everyone out there is considered “sane” or not… but it’s not their business any more.
Then, they would like to ask you questions at the doctors office (and I have experienced this personally, so this isn’t some vacuous statement) about your ownership of guns; or whether you have “recently felt like harming yourself or others”.
Let me address the title; no-fly lists. How does one even get ON a no-fly list? And why are they on it? Because they might blow up a plane with a 4 ounce bottle of shampoo? Or because you spoke out against the US government because you’re dissatisfied with their work ethic?
Both, actually. If you are a terrorist, you might wish to blow up a plane and perhaps you’ve made it clear, because, for instance you MIGHT belong to Islam. Islam has made it abundantly clear they wish to kill Americans (and Jews, and Europeans, and Whites, Blacks, Asians, whomever, and wish to do so with impunity… because you’re an INFIDEL). And you might have made a statement against the US government for their over-reaching, heavy-handed nonsense and you’re questioning their ability to be useful any more.
And with good reason. You’re an American Citizen questioning the government, because YOU are a watchdog. YOU are supposed to question the country’s leaders as a dutiful citizen. Making sure they are doing their job, and doing it for the benefit of the people, and not themselves.
If you’re a terrorist you should BE on a no-fly list, in particular to prevent further training as a terrorist, and secondarily to that to prevent you from blowing up the damned plane. You should NOT be able to purchase a gun.
If you’re a citizen questioning your government, you should NOT be a no-fly list, no matter which politician, party or group is running the White House this week. In fact, you should not be on that list, you should NOT be questioned about your questioning, and you SHOULD be allowed to purchase a gun.
Or ten of them. Or a hundred.
You should not be considered a threat, mentally defective, you should not be considered a person of interest and should be left the hell alone.
In the United States you have a right to your opinion, to express it, Freedom of Speech, Assembly, and to cross state lines and come and go as you please. No one should be bothering you.
The second you actually commit a crime of course, that all goes out the window.
Now – I’m not going to answer all the above questions. But I’m going to explain this, carefully for the slow readers out there….
If you are not a criminal (and that includes people who have committed non-capital offenses in the past and have served their time) should not be denied their rights. They should not be placed on watch lists. They should not be denied guns, freedom of speech, travel or assembly.
The Progressives in this country (Read: Liberals/Marxists/Communists/Libtards/Democrats and morons) are using words to push their agenda. They want to be able to place ANYONE on a no-fly, watch list and thereby prevent them from buying, holding, using, storing or otherwise have rights to guns.
In other words, the idea of background checks is to see if someone doesn’t meet a certain criteria; that criteria will be decided by whome EVER is in charge of the current government, be it GOP, Democrats, Obama, Leftist, Rightist, Libertarian, Marixist, Commie, Pinko or whatever….
Therein lies the problem.
Everyone wants to TRUST the government and it’s time to distrust them with all your hearts.
Our government is supposed to be by the people and for the people; not for themselves, not for profit, not to control us, not to have power.
Do not trust a politician who says they will “ban guns”. Or implement regulations to “check backgrounds” because quite honestly, who is going to watch the watchers?????
You see, we already have several thousand gun laws on the books, federal, state, local, wish lists and made up stuff that some local “authority” can invoke at their whim. Those rules, laws, city regulations, county statutes are all there for one thing. To prevent you and me from having a normal, healthy, happy life pursuing whatever business we like, go where we wish and drink the beer we like.
You see my friends gun control isn’t about guns.
It’s about control.
No-fly lists are great if you’re preventing terrorists. Not so good if you’re preventing granny or grandpa from boarding a plane to go home for Christmas. Or stopping Joe Blow because he happens to have expressed dissatisfaction with a government policy of allowing in random illegal immigrants (who didn’t go through normal regulations and procedures to get into the country).
Our country is under siege. Siege from illegals, from terrorists, from people who want to “change” our country to something it is not, and was never intended to be.
We are here to prevent the latter, more than anything. And we will do so.
No more gun laws will be enacted.
No more “refugees” will be let in, or they will be run out.
NO more Obamas in office. No more Clintons in office. They had their day. And have ruined our country.
If you don’t like guns, by God move someplace where guns are already illegal. If you don’t like the idea this is a Capitalist country, move to a Communist country. I was here first, and my country was the way it was before you tried to screw it up. If you don’t like the fact you can’t get some rich guys money split up amongst all your homies… then homie, move the fuck out of my country and leave the guys alone that have the money.
Those guys create jobs. Or maybe you should just get a job?
The greatest problem with gun control is that anyone can be placed on a list, adjudicated as mentally defective and prevented from exercising their rights.

On November 2, The Daily Beast pointed to recent statements from President Obama and Hillary Clinton regarding the implementation of Australian-style gun confiscation and suggested “civil war could erupt on American soil” if any administration actually tried to confiscate privately owned firearms.
The Daily Beast theoretically agreed that “confiscation on a massive scale” may be “the only way to solve American gun violence,” but they pointed out that it was not realistic and suggested Hillary risks causing irreparable divisions by talking about confiscation then mocking gun owners as conspiracy theorists waiting for “black helicopters” to come take their guns away.
According to The Daily Beast, confiscation was workable in Australia because there was no Second Amendment and the government only had to take 650,000 guns. That is a far cry from the “350 million” believed to be in Americans’ hands.
Yes, “350 million.”
But even more important than the number of guns is the depth of American “devotion” to them. And The Daily Beast observes that it is this devotion–this dedication to the philosophy and tradition underlying the right to keep and bear arms–that turns the mere mention of confiscation into something that could literally rip the country apart.
The Daily Beast put it thus, “The prospect of confiscation—as much as it might, theoretically, reduce drastically or even eliminate gun crime altogether—is simply impossible in the United States.” They pointed to statements by Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson, who stressed that Jews could have curtailed the Holocaust had they retained their guns. The Daily Beast suggests Carson hit on something “Second Amendment enthusiasts are fond of arguing,” namely, “that gun rights are enshrined in the Constitution not only for the sake of hunters or people who want to protect their homes and businesses from criminals, but also to allow the population to resist an overreaching government.”
Breitbart News previously reported that Founding Father James Madison used Federalist 46 to make that very point–that armed citizens could band together and resist their government, should it tend toward tyranny. And he pointed out that this demonstrated American exceptionalism inasmuch as citizens of other nations, lacking arms, also lacked the ability to resist.
The Daily Beast addressed the way Hillary mentioned confiscation only later to mock gun owners for fearing the government might come after their guns:
Clinton can joke all she likes about Americans fearing “black helicopters” taking their guns away, but it is no exaggeration to suggest that civil war could erupt on American soil were the U.S. government to attempt anything remotely resembling what was done in Australia.
The column in The Daily Beast is aptly titled, “Yes, They Want to Take Your Guns Away.”

You ARE NEXT AMERICA!
Mohammed’s unchanging formula for conquest is time-proven; variations were also used in history by the invading Mongol hordes among others. Emissaries ride forward of their advancing armies, offering to spare the lives of the targeted population in return for their unconditional surrender and explicit submission to their new rulers. In the Islamic context this submission is exemplified by the fresh converts repeating the Shahada prayer before Muslim witnesses.
There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is his messenger.
The Shahada prayer is the first of the Five Pillars of Islam. The Shahada prayer is also what is written on the black battle flags of Islamic jihad. Along with Allahu Akbar—our God is greatest—the Shahada is the battle cry of advancing Islamic armies. In fact, the very word Islam means submission, and not peace, as it is often intentionally mistranslated by duplicitous Muslims practicing taqiya, or sanctified lying for the cause of advancing the spread of Islam.
It’s purposefully made very easy for a town or a city to submit and convert to Islam. But the entire city must surrender without posing any resistance at all. In the event of any violent or even physical resistance, a new formula applies: the Islamic jihad conquest formula. From the time of Mohammed until today—as we are seeing in the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq—the formula has not changed.
1. During the battle and immediately afterward, there is a period of unbelievable savagery and wanton hyper–violence.
Any of the defeated population from infants to grandmothers may be subjected to the most extreme cruelty, including beheading with knives or swords, crucifixion, being burned or buried alive, or thrown down wells or off cliffs or high walls. During this period, women, girls and boys are routinely gang-raped by frenzied jihadists, to the point that survivors almost always suffer lifelong crippling internal and external injuries. Suicide among the survivors of these savage gang rapes is common. The Christian and Zahidi girls and boys in Northern Iraq are only the most recent victims of this traditional Muslim depraved cruelty.
Those who survive until the victorious jihadists have consolidated their hold and sated their blood-lusts are the fortunate ones. They may have caught a potential protector’s eye, or hidden themselves until the jihadists’ most bloodthirsty passions have subsided. No jihadists will ever be called to account by Muslim jihad leaders for their atrocities committed during the battle and victory consolidation phase.
For the first time in history, today we are seeing what the previous millions of victims of Muslim conquests have experienced for 1,400 years. The recent beheadings and crucifixions in Syria and Iraq are not new or novel. What is new and novel is that today these Muslim jihad atrocities are being filmed and transmitted for the purpose of spreading the propaganda of Islamic State terror, to encourage their next intended targets to submit and surrender without resistance.
2. Captured men will be beheaded, shot or enslaved.
Following a fresh conquest, when the defeated men are tied up, imprisoned, or held under the barrels of Muslim guns, they may either be murdered or enslaved. Their fate depends upon the tactical situation and the best advantage as perceived by the victors. If the Muslim victory is thought to be temporary, the jihadists will immediately murder all of the men and boys over the age of twelve, eliminating them as future threats. They may be beheaded if there is sufficient time, otherwise they will be shot in ditches as we have recently seen in Iraq. The heads of the decapitated will be stuck on poles, fences or walls as a gruesome public warning against further resistance by the living.
If the latest jihad victory is thought to be secure and slave labor is desired, the captured men and boys will be fettered in chains and put to work under conditions similar to those experienced by slave laborers under the Nazis during World War Two. They may be fed or starved at the sole discretion of their new overlords. They may be worked fifteen or more hours a day, every day, in all weather and climates with no shoes, gloves, coats or hats. Often they will be both starved and overworked to the extent that a significant percentage of them will perish every month. When these wretched slaves are too weak to haul boulders or dig trenches, they may be executed at the sole discretion of their overlords. No discipline will ever be meted out for starving, beating or killing “infidel” slave laborers.
3. Women and teenage girls will be kidnapped as sex-slaves, to be sold at auction to the highest bidders.
The prettier young women and girls will be fortunate to become the concubine of one powerful man. The plainer women and girls will be sold as house or field slaves, doing fifteen or more hours of hard work every remaining day of their lives: hauling water, cleaning floors, cooking and so on. They may be raped, starved, beaten or killed at the whim of their owners. They may be subjected to forced female genital mutilation—the razor-blade excision of their clitoris and other horrors—depending on the whims of their new masters. No discipline will ever be applied to their masters. They are chattel property with no rights at all.
4. Children younger than twelve will be kidnapped and raised under Sharia law by the very men who murdered or enslaved their parents.
Girls may be assigned to the victors or sold off as future house slaves, beginning their arduous life of toil as soon as they are able to gather firewood or haul water, often by the age of seven or eight. Young girls showing the promise of becoming pretty teenagers may be assigned to harems for sex-slave indoctrination. At the whim of their owners, the luckiest might even be adopted and raised as family members. From starvation, beatings and overwork, to being assigned to a harem as a sex-slave, to being adopted and raised in some comfort, the relative misery of the kidnapped and enslaved girls will be entirely up to their new masters.
The young kidnapped boys will be sent to madrasa schools to memorize the Koran by repetitiously chanting it, in order to become fully brainwashed Islamic killer zombies as adults. Perhaps most perversely cruel, in time they may join with the murderers and enslavers of their very own forgotten parents, while engaged upon new missions of Islamic jihad conquest. Black slave boys from sub-Saharan Africa will routinely be castrated, turning them into placid adult eunuch slaves.
5. Conquered property will be looted as legitimate war booty.
Buildings and homes will be occupied by the victorious jihadists after the murder or enslavement of their former owners. Any moveable property will be stolen by the victors. Concealed money, jewelry or other valuables will be found by serially torturing family members until someone breaks and reveals the hiding place. This looting, like the rape and murder of enemies in battle, is fully sanctioned by Mohammed’s Sharia Law. This is nothing more than the worst kind of piracy codified into practice and called a “religion.”
It is worth noting that before Mohammed descended into the desert cave to hear the messages of Allah, he was an actual desert pirate, falling upon caravans and plundering them—after beheading the men, and raping and enslaving the women. He later applied the same formula to conquer the Arabian deserts in the name of Allah. If it was good enough for Mohammed, Islam’s perfect man, then it is good enough for any believing Muslim, then, now or in the future. Thus the Islamic jihad conquest formula is unchangeable and Islam can never be reformed. Would-be reformers are beheaded as apostates to true Koranic Islam.
6. The promised Islamic reward for dying in jihad is a perpetual orgy in “paradise” with 72 virgins.
For impoverished Muslim men with little hope of finding a women to marry during their earthly lives, this is a strong inducement to engage in violent jihad. If they are victorious in jihad, they might capture, rape and enslave actual living, breathing infidel girls (and boys). If they die while engaging in jihad, they are vaulted to the front of the line into paradise, and immediately obtain their 72 virgins. This is why suicide bombers often rush toward their “infidel” enemies to blow themselves up:
they are convinced that their perpetual orgy will begin the instant after their self-detonation. The Islamic promise of 72 virgins in “paradise” means that jihad is a win-win proposition for a fervent Muslim man. They may well enjoy their jihad rape-fest in this world, but if not, they will enjoy it in the next world immediately following their violent jihad deaths.
7. The Black Flag of Jihad has been the battle flag of Islam from the time of Mohammed until today.
The Saudi Arabian flag also carries the Shahada prayer, but on a green field, indicating that the home of Mecca is part of the Dar al Islam, or House of Submission. Outside of nations living under Sharia Law, in the Dar al Harb, or House of War, Muslims fly the Black Flag of Jihad to indicate their clear intention to violently force that country to submit to Islam.
Islam began with a cruel desert pirate named Mohammed, and it soon took to the seas. In the Mediterranean Sea, the Black Flag of Jihad was simplified to show only a scimitar sword or an arm holding a scimitar, indicating to the crew of the “infidel” ship being attacked their simple choice: surrender and submit to Islam, or face beheading at worst, or enslavement at best.
During the Corsair era, lasting into the 19th Century, many captured Europeans chose to convert to Islam by repeating the Shahada prayer, rather than to be killed or enslaved. Many of these “renegade” Europeans even signed on as crew aboard Muslim pirate vessels, some even rising to the rank of corsair captain. Islam is always welcoming of converts, and under Islam what we call piracy is fully sanctioned as “sea jihad.” Some of these European converts-of-convenience to Islam later escaped and took up piracy on their own accounts. The Black Flag of Jihad was the origin of the familiar non-Muslim black pirate flags, borrowing its fearsome reputation to cow and terrorize targeted ships into surrendering without resistance.
Simply put, the Black Flag of Jihad is the black pirate flag of an evil pirate “religion.”
8. The lure of capturing male and female slaves and obtaining other forms of loot and plunder is the Islamic jihad conquest formula.
Average men in polygamous Muslim societies have little hope of obtaining a wife, not when the wealthy and powerful already have several wives apiece. Jihad offers ordinary Muslims a chance to obtain wives or sex-slave concubines by force in battle, or 72 virgins in the afterlife. Jihad also offers poor Muslims a chance to obtain a home and other forms of wealth by force, as we are seeing today in Iraq.
Unlike Christianity with its Golden Rule, Islam has always appealed to the worst desires of evil men, and the most ruthlessly evil men, like its originator Mohammed, are its greatest beneficiaries. Normal human beings ask the question: what kind of a sick and twisted so-called “religion” promises its highest rewards in exchange for engaging in organized looting, mass murder, mass rape, torture and slavery in the name of its god? Only Islam, which has been an insane rape and murder cult since Mohammed crawled out of the bat cave and barked at the crescent moon.
Moses and Jesus are reported to have climbed to the tops of high mountains to communicate with God. Just who was whispering the gospel of plunder, rape and murder into Mohammed’s ear, deep under the surface of the earth in that dark Saudi Arabian cave?
Who taught Mohammed the Islamic jihad conquest formula?
UPDATE 2245 EDT 20 AUG 2014: Bracken sends this addendum:
This was a good question on the Free Republic thread about my essay,“The Islamic Jihad Conquest Formula.” The question and my answer should be included as an afterword to the essay.
Q: The case has been made, even by some conservatives, that the Moorish period in Spain was a golden period. Jews and Christians were treated with tolerance, but the Spanish people that pushed out the Moors, treated them with contempt and intolerance. I wonder, is this revisionism, or is there some truth to it?
A. Under Islam there have been varying high and low periods, also varying from place to place. For example, under the rule of Sultan Mulay Ismail in 18th Century Morocco, the hard labor was all done by black and white slaves who perished in droves in extreme misery, under conditions like those experienced by Jews under the Nazis. He was a Hitler who survived as absolute ruler for more than 60 years. Great miles-long palaces were built on the bones of slave labor.
Or an absolute ruler might turn out to be a gem, an enlightened gentleman for the age, yes, that happened and the hard edge of Sharia was sometimes blunted. But always and every time, in every century, the end of a ruler meant the high chance of a bloodbath, and the next ruler could be a blood brother of Mohammed, or al Queda, or IS.
It is always a danger that this 7th Century fanaticism will break out, it has happened over and over through history. Islam cannot have a reformation that “sticks” beyond an enlightened ruler or two, because there are always determined mullahs of the Khomeini or Bagdadi stripe ready to grab power as the new Sultan or even Caliph. Bagdadi is merely the latest in a long line. Eruptions of 7th Century fervor are always a risk in Islam.
I’ll give you a real world example. Morocco is presently very politely Westernized, insofar as any Muslim country can be. The hip young king even married a red-headed Berber wife who looks like Maureen O’Sullivan, God help me. She appears with him in Western dresses with flowing tresses. He is making a point. One wife, hair out, shoulders in dress like Paris. It is a signal, one of many.
Surfers from Europe flock to Moroccan wavs, tourists flock along the promenades. European bathing suits and customs are tolerated along the beach strips. You can buy wine and beer at shops run by Christians, near the beaches.
But brother, it could turn on a dime, and the enlightened king can beheaded and replaced by a spiritual brother of Bagdadi, swearing allegiance to the new IS caliphate. Don’t rule it out, ever.
Every century or two there is a new self-proclaimed Mahdi. Bagdadi is calling himself the Caliph, and all must swear loyalty to him. The black flag with the white ball logo is his personal mark, to distinguish it from generic Al Queda or Hamas black flag with the shahada all on one line.
Islam is unreformable. Its blueprint always gives a handle to maniacs who can recruit armies of brainwashed killer zombie mutant humanoids.
Good morning all.
I’m sitting at a military installation. For the record it is being passed on the news that literally several thousand at the various bases in my region have been furloughed.
Now – looking around me, I can tell you this is kind of bullshit. A whole lot of government people are at work.
This morning NOAA shut down their web sites. Web sites don’t require a hell of a lot of work – except updating the data on them, so why shut it down? A large portion of the people working for ALL government agencies are Contractors.
In our case, I’m a contractor, money has been allocated already (for awhile, we could be furloughed soon too though).
In the case of NOAA most of the weather people doing updates are contractors.
So shutting down sites is a childish thing the President has ordered.
Yesterday monuments in DC were closed. Today a lot of parks are closed… even if they have roads passing through, the ROADS ARE CLOSED. Childish.
The White House hasn’t been reopened since sequestration… childish.
Do I care if the government “shuts down”? Not really.
All those “economic problems” because “caused” by this are more bullshit problems. They aren’t getting their check on payday – but you can bet your ass they will get their back pay. No one is going to stop spending money because the government has shut down.
Funny…. though, Obamacare hasn’t shut down. It launches the day the government shuts down and it’s being funded.
There is a (slight) possibility that if this continues for weeks there will be some “crashes”. EBT cards won’t get funded soon enough and a lot of government agencies will simply stop working. This means that there will be some ripples, but how bad those ripples becomes is anyone’s guess right now.
I honestly see the GOP caving in shortly because they are getting the majority of the blame, even though it is Harry Reid and the Senate really stopping this.
Yesterday they funded the military, but refused to fund the VA. Congress will get paid no matter what, because it’s written into the constitution they will get paid.
Basically this is a “Fund my stuff, but not your stuff” kind of fight. The country as a whole doesn’t want Obamacare. A few people want it. Liberals assholes who want others to pay for their problems.
I have a job, I have health care – I’m expecting it to increase drastically to the point I will tell them “I don’t want it”. And I’ll take the “fine” and I won’t pay that either. Pretty soon, I will have ZERO INCOME and how cool will that be? I can’t really be fined if I have no money right? Whatever.
To hell with the government, Obama, the Democrats, the GOP – all of them. They are a bunch of lying assholes who want to control every aspect of our lives in America. They want most of our money we make (so they can waste it), they want to control where we can go, when we can go, how much we can save or not save, they want to control OUR HEALTH, they want to control what we eat, read, drink, own, where we live, how we live and whether we live or die.
Not only is it TIME to shut this government down, it’s time to remove these assholes from office.
GET OUT OF OUR LIVES PRESIDENT OBAMA AND CONGRESS!
