The "Government Shutdown" and political rhetoric

*Brief programming note first...sorry for the delay in more posts germs and virii. A storm fried the power supply on my pc and it took me several days to get it back up.* 

Seriously?  I'm getting sick and tired of it. So are many of the people I know.  When you have the PPM mouth pieces, pundits, sitting democratic senators and others; calling people who disagree with them and actually want the government to run the way our founding fathers intended.."Tea Party Terrorists".  Calling people like Ted Cruz, who got ELECTED on getting the brakes put on Obamacare for one thing, and having a government that actually listens to it's constituents for another "Tea baggers"...political discourse and reason are all down the crapper boys and girls. here's further proof. 

A bunch of fucktard ass maggots who have no CONCEPT of the way the government is supposed to work as set down in the constitution [here's a hint...look up the constitution. read article 1 section 7.]  are calling for arrest for sedition of sitting republican congress critters because these same people don't agree with the repubs in the house, actually doing their JOBS for once and trying to put the brakes on runaway spending; is asinine. 

For those too lazy to go look up Article 1 Section 7 of the US Constitution, it states:
"All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills"

What that means boys and girls is that the HOUSE ,as you have been told repeatedly, holds the purse strings. To them falls the job of deciding "Hey we can't afford to fund this here, unless we make cuts over there, or over there.".  Or..."we flat out can't fucking afford this shit, stop spending money like a drunken sailor on shore leave in a whorehouse!"  *note..I apologize to all the naval and other personnel out there who this insults. because at least YOU folks can grasp the concept of 'when you're out of money...stop trying to spend what you don't have or borrow it from other people!'

Sadly this is reminiscent of one of my favorite tv shows. Came out almost 21years ago now. It's called Babylon 5. Sadly in that one, near the end of the second and beginning of the 3rd was considered sedition to disagree with the, and feel free to quote me on this "Head MotherFucker Who's Having Delusions of Grandeur".  

Anytime someone disagrees with the Dems or President Obummer about..

health care..its "you hate grandma, you want to shove her off a cliff!"

wanting to stop all this runaway spending and wanting the house to cut the purse's  "you teabagging, tea party terrorist! you can't dictate to the government!"  yeah actually...we can.

disagree with them about basically anything, or try and call them to the carpet it's "you old white racist asshole honkies!"  Uhmm Really? you still think racism is real?  Here...try reading this and open your mind to reality.

In Babylon 5 this story line didn't end well. See what happened was the rational people with functioning brains who actually gave a damn about the Constitution, and upholding it...ended up seceding. And of course the Government couldn't allow this so they started killing people who were protesting and seceding..including and especially civilians. Like now in reality, in the show the gov't basically owned the msm, lock, stock and both smoking barrels.  In the show we had the Psy Corp aka quite literally the "thought police".  Now we have Political Correctness and a willingness to destroy anyone who doesn't pander or kow tow to it. the time it was all over the good guys succeeded...but a shit pot full of people on BOTH sides had to die first. Now while the current political dissension may very well end up in blood shed, and people on both sides will likely end up dying in job lots...are we going to get the same 'happy' ending?   Stay tuned boys and girls because as I said in another post...the jury is still out on that one.

Oh I highly recommend the show. It's one of the few shows out there with an actual beginning, middle and end. It was slated to run a 5yr story arc and ended at the end of 5 seasons. That wasn't the end of the story however. the guy who created the show had this whole HUGE story line on the evolution and future of the human race. of which Babylon 5 is only the beginning. He started to continue it in another show called Crusade but alas...the studio execs being total dicks...they pulled the plug with only half a season worth of episodes in the can.  Oh well.

Remember, TANSTAAFL and...

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