Government shutdown, what it means and the future.

Some of you may not have seen some of the links I'm fixing to post of our petty Herr Fuhrer wanna be that currently resides in the Peoples House and his diktats in action.  Most of you though. Probably have.  That being said...perpend.

Homeowners forced out of their homes and off their land

Why because while they own the homes, the Federal Government holds the land. 


Here's some folks protesting the closing of parks.

Park Protest


Most everyone I expect heard the following one as it's been so widely covered..

WW2 memorial

Wait there's more to this one as of yesterday..

  Barricades at WW2 memorial now wired.

What? never heard of wire cutters?  Idiots.  What?
"OMG they might move to using CHAINS next? if we cut the wires wolf!" *snort* Depending on the thickness of the links then in that case I'd see their chains and raise them. Either bolt cutters or a goddamn blowtorch.  Oh by the way...this park was COMPLETELY privately funded by generous donations to the foundation who built it.  They raised 200 MILLION dollars for the project. They had a huge lump sum left afterwards and put those funds, into a federal trust, in trust to the government, so that maintenance of the park grounds would be paid for and taken care of.  they would have been better off asking for continued donations and paying a private company to do the maintenance. Hell if they'd asked...they'd probably have unpaid VOLUNTEERS that would come out and clean the park.

read it and weep if you don't believe me

Putting up cones blocking access to Mt Rushmore and the park.

Hmmm one friend suggested just running the cones over in a vehicle. I agreed but on second though...if you want to protest this one with a number of people...put some people in the backs of pick ups in front your convoy to the park. simply pick up the cones and stack them neatly in the back of the truck as you go. then dump them neatly  at the park gate when you get there, and go in.


more protesting at the Badlands Park


Someone else protesting the high handedness and payin the penalty.

So the rangers are blocking access to his business?  My suggestion...call and make a reservation for a party and ask if there are shrubs near the entrance way and if the property is fronted by a drainage ditch. If no...to the latter anyway. come to the inn and go through the shrubs. bring enough money to be able to pay for replacement. Hell if you own a landscaping company bring the replacements in pots.  My other suggestion. Sue the park rangers in court for infringement of your constitutional rights. Because they are sure as shit violating them in this case.

Then there was this bit of gross stupidity....

Really? *facepalm* blows the mind don't it?   Or little Herr Fuhrer wanna be has really lost his mind this time. Of course that's always assuming he HAD a mind in the first place.



What it means is that the government in the form of the democrats have gone completely off the rails.  See they are throwing a temper tantrum and shit fit because the House of Representatives is surprisingly and amazingly enough...doing the JOB it was created for. Carrying out the purpose it was created for.  As a check and balance, a curb on the growth of government. A curb on the spending. The ultimate arbiters of the public's checkbook. They were supposed to be proposing budgets and forcing the government to stay within those budgets by saying "Nope we don't really need this all that badly and we can't afford it. try again next year' or ' we can give you this but you have to work with us to cut this, and this back'.   I'm stunned beyond belief that after all these years they are finally doing that goddamn job. 

Don't believe that was one of the House's reason for being?  I give Federalist paper 58...written by one of the framers of our Constitution...James Madison.

Understand me on something. ' WE The People' ARE the government.  WE own the land, WE own the roads.  The Government, be it the federal fuck ups, state or local are our employees, not our masters.  WE hired them to sanely and intelligently manage our assets while we went about our daily lives.  Again because this is important to understand the government is our EMPLOYEE; NOT our Master.  Everything they are up to right now in this temper tantrum being thrown by the Dems, the Senate and the Herr Fuhrer wanna be...are UN-Constitutional, UN-American and our forefathers would spit in the faces of their political office inheritors.

So in the case of people on Lake Mead being forced out for example?  They SHOULD HAVE, en masse said "Boy the people are the government, therefore the people own this land, therefore I own this land...now get off my property"    See it would have forced the government to do something that really would not have set well with most...it would have forced them to send in police or federal agents to remove those people by FORCE. Demonstrating out in the open yet again...what dictatorial asswipes our employees are turning into.

See those of us like me...understand this. We want to be free to live our lives without the diktats of a vindictive petty tyrannical overlord/government.  It's why our founders created the government the way they did.  To try to slow the creeping infestation of the power hungry.  I don't think frankly that our founding fathers ever believed that even the government system they set up could slow it down forever or stop it out right. I think they knew the latter was a pipe dream. However if the creep started they expected WE the People to step on it's neck and say "Uh uh. I don't think so junior."   We the people and the generations before mine...failed.   We failed our duty to keep our government in check and we failed abominably.  We the following generations, the inheritors of the legacy of our forefathers have squandered the fuck out of it. Those who sit in their political offices in undeserved splendor.  Spitefully and gleefully  thinking THEY are the lords and masters of us all.  They are WRONG.

There is a symbolic clock face, called The Doomsday Clock.  It's been in existence since the creation of nuclear weapons. As a  means by which, the committee that created it and runs it; the Science and Security Board of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, can track what they say is how close we are to a Global Disaster or rather...a Global Thermonuclear War. It's original intent has now been corrupted to include "Climate Change" blah blah blah. I won't get into that now.
Suffice to say I believe that clock should also include the dissolution of governments.  For us I believe we are at 5mins to midnight or even closer than that to the brink.  There is still time step up to the plate to do our best to step back from the brink. It'll mean making and living with very HARD choices. it'll take decades of diligence and watchfulness to undo the harm that has been done to our country, our liberties and our freedoms.  It may even include some bloodshed.  Fore,  those who crave power of the magnitude now held by those in our government and the sycophants that run the various alphabet soup of bureaucratic agencies, seldom give that power up willingly.  History proves  and teaches us this lesson, time and time and time again.  Sadly some of We the People have closed our minds to that lesson and carry on in blissful ignorance.  Content to be....slaves,  so long as they don't have to be held responsible for, or live with the consequences of,  their own life choices.

The preceding are just some of the thoughts running through my mind recently.  Those thoughts and possible conclusions to which they lead me, frankly scare the shit out of me, some of them.


Anyway.....

Remember TANSTAAFL and.....

I now return you to your regularly scheduled inanity and insanity.

  3. Well written. The morons also tried to close the Wall. Maybe a million or so citizens whose comrades and friends are on the Wall should visit ol' President Stompy Feet. Ask Boehner, too. Read the Constitution to them, point out their jobs and send them back to work.
    Lay off the non-essential Feds.
    Repeat as needed.

Feel free to drop a line but try and keep it civil if it breaks into a heated discussion.
