A government shutdown may come at midnight. Feels like New Year’s Eve to me and I will celebrate, if the shutdown does occur. You are all invited to join me. I will undoubtedly feel a thrill up my leg as the clock strikes twelve. This is a moment for champagne. I must refresh my lipstick and find the right thing to wear…must find the perfect little black dress.
While flipping through the A.M. stations during the morning commute to drop the little munchkin at his school, I paused on a Geraldo interview. Trust me, I never linger on Geraldo since he is a self-important, farting airbag but I heard Anne Coulter and Alan Dershowitz discussing the potential shutdown. Beyond detailing the many supposed merits of Obamacare, Turdowitz added that “next, we need free college” which only reminds me of the grossly overblown, overreaching government monster we’ve allowed to flourish and engorge itself since the dawn of the Great Society. Our federal system is one morbidly obese lady who, once she dies from her overindulgence, her ridiculously-proportioned body won’t be leaving her trailer without the assistance of a bulldozer and a crane. Food, Phones, housing, medical, and this guy has no compunction actually demanding the government provision of free college? Turdowitz and his kind are shameless with their never-ending demands for more.
Has anyone been to college in the last several decades? What a money and time waste it is for innumerable students. Aside from students in vital departments like engineering and nursing, our institutes of higher learning are full of young liberal losers who have declared in majors like Ethnic Studies, Literature and Theatre Arts. Upon graduation, many of these kids are headed straight to the unemployment line with hundreds of thousands in student loans. And Turdowitz thinks our government should fund this enormous time-waste we call college? When I hear such idiotic demands for more government services, I feel the demoralizing desire for the entire thing to collapse, if only for the sake of good principle. Even if a shutdown were only to last a brief moment, it would feel oh-so-gratifying. Maybe I’ve had it with strategizing. Maybe I am desperate to see political men and women unafraid to stand for things they actually believe in. Hooray for Senator Cruz! Who said conservatives have no heart? I do have a heart and demonstration of principle just feels good.
Sure, there are many who say that a show of principle by our GOP would only result in the backlash in 2014. Thank you, Mr. McCain, for stating the Democrat’s case for them. McCain whined that the senate should not repeal or defund Obamacare and to think we should do so is “not rational.” With Republicans like McCain, who needs Democrats? We know the democrat disc jockeys are ready to spin a beat of how Republicans want to hurt the American people and take food from old people. Democrats are the masters of the blame game and Republicans will have a PR issue no matter which move they make. So why not make the move that’s based on our core beliefs as conservatives? And if some of our GOP are no longer conservative, how about they simply represent the will of those who sent them to D.C.? Rasmussen tells us that 51 % favor a shutdown. A solid 50 % of voters oppose the individual mandate. 36% cannot manage basic mathematics and thus are in support the mandate while the remaining 14% also haven’t got a clue. Even Obama wordlessly tells us, by his decision to delay by one year his employer mandate, that his healthcare plan will be a disaster if implemented on schedule.
What would a shutdown mean, in reality? If it goes on for very long, things could be a tad inconvenient. Would it all be bad? Nah. I don’t agree with the government guaranteeing housing loans, along with a number of other programs. And I can live without visiting a national park, probably for the rest of my life. The shutdown has no affect on other things. Never fear, Mr. Obama, the house and senate will still receive paychecks. That’s comforting.
Regardless, it’s doubtful that any shutdown would be allowed to continue too long. People have to be reelected, right? Don’t want to piss off too many constituents so a resolution will be reached eventually.
Many of us are overwhelmed with despair at the unfair, unmitigated media support for the progressive agenda. I cannot be the only one out here who would welcome a breakdown in the system, sooner rather than later. And a breakdown will come, my friends. The heights of Progressivism are unsustainable. The resulting instability could lend our system to eventual collapse, conversion to a de facto totalitarian regime or worse. We have already begun to falter under the current and recent administrations. So, tonight, the heavy decision hanging over me is…do I pair my little black dress with the spike heels or the suede stack booties?
