Lethargy, irony and cowards
First we get a nice layer of snow and a couple days later the snow melts and we have mud everywhere. It seems as if fall will just not surrender to winter. Not that I am complaining but being the resident Curmudgeon I have to put on a good show, and if I were to be upset and miserable my focus should be on myself. Because lately whenever I sit down to write a new posting I have been going in circles, and scattered across my desktop are unfinished postings about:
Drones flying over Alaska
Swat teams accompanying the EPA when they inspected local gold mines.
The obama-care web site that was allowed to open but is still not working.
The US stopping financial aid to Egypt because the Egyptian military didn’t want the Muslim brotherhood to run the country.
That we will pay all government employees furloughed because of the government shutdown.
And my ‘personal’ favorite
social security will increase only 1,5% next year
because the cost of living in the US is rising only 1.5% ?
Whoever sets the guidelines for the cost of living index must have their heads up their ass because even the most basic of living expenses has gone up at least 10 if not 25%. From apartment rentals to bread and eggs, from your electricity bill to home heating oil. I would give thanks if they only went up 1.5% but that is because it effects me personally every time I shop for food or open a bill.
So I have dug through the pile of potential posting sitting on my desktop and have resurrected the posting seen below it is one that I started on Friday and I think it still holds true today. It is a bit severe but then that’s how I feel about my representation in Washington I did clean it up a bit and now present it to you for your consideration……
It’s that time again to wipe the blood away from your eyes and stop pulling your hair out because we knew the house republicans would not stand their ground. If the men at the Alamo gave in like the republican leadership did Texas would be part of Mexico, and if our men and woman fighting in world war two caved like the our representatives did we would all be speaking German. Yes I know it’s not official yet but the writing is on the wall obama-care is off the table and our government is going to continue to spend more than it takes in when the senate and house passes a budget extension and raises the debit ceiling.
Once again the biased media, showing veterans and children being turned away from our national parks, has led the majority of ill informed people to believe we were destroying our country because of the shutdown. Like many of you I thought that just maybe we now had a chance to force some real budget cuts because of the shutdown. The heavy lifting was done and with the government shutdown even obama and senate democrats would have to make some concessions.
I did not really think we could defund obama-care but I felt surly some government cutbacks would result from the shutdown. Both parties and the president are taking hits in the poles and even now I do not understand why so many are caving in. I am sure they think that if the resolve the crisis now they can still win reelection because they know that ‘we the people’ have short memories.
The one thing that did come out of the shutdown
is proof that everyone of our representatives is a coward
and if ‘they’ were defending our freedom in WW11
this posting would be in German.
