YAWN: A Government Shut Down

Well, I woke up this morning and looked outside and low and behold, nothing has changed. The sky did not fall, the earth did not swallow up anything and the sun was shining bright. I guess all that gloom and doom talk about the Government shutdown was a load of crap. It reminded me of the dreaded sequester, when the end of the world was predicted as well and life went on.

Like the sequester, the White House is trying to make it look as bad as it possibly can. During the sequester the White House sent out e-mails that said to make sure the cuts are as painful as President Obama promised they would be. In the internal email, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service official Charles Brown said he asked if he could try to spread out the sequester cuts in his region to minimize the impact, and he said he was told not to do anything that would lessen the dire impacts Congress had been warned of. The Obama  Administration at work, this really shows he is concerned about the American people, NOT.

Now with the shutdown of the Government, the Administration has taken it upon themselves to put barriers around open-air World War II memorials, a place that is open 24/7. Once again, like the sequester, the Obama Administration wants to make sure as many Americans as he can are being inconvenienced, just so he can blame Republicans. A President who purposely tries to hurt the American people just to prove a point, is not much of a leader, but most of us knew that already.

The truth be known, most of the Government will still be running, but there are the non-essential employees that will have a paid vacation for a while. Although they will not be getting paid while they are off, they will be getting a fat check when they return to work. Anyway, if they are non-essential to begin with, why do we need them?

I do believe this will wind up working against the Democrats, the sequester happened and life went on, the Government shuts down and life goes on. I think people just might stop and think, things are going along just fine with most of the Government off, so why do we need them at all? Yes, maybe people will realize that a smaller Government will do the job better than a big over stuffed Government can.

“A shutdown will have a very real economic impact on real people, right away,” Obama said the other day. “Past shutdowns have disrupted the economy significantly. This one would too. It would throw a wrench into the gears of our economy at a time when those gears have gained some traction.” So far everything I have read about the 95 shutdown, said that after it ended the economy boomed, and with an economy dragging along at 2% growth, we can only pray that the same thing will happen again. Heaven knows Obama has done nothing to repair our broken economy; everything he has done resulted in the opposite effect.

Ninety-seven percent of NASA’s 18,134 workers will be furloughed. Over at the Environmental Protection Agency, 94 percent, at the Transportation Department 33 percent. 87 percent of Commerce’s 46,420 workers, 80 percent of Treasury’s 112,461 workers, 50 percent of Defense’s 800,000 workers, 15 percent of Justice’s 114,486 workers. It seems to me the Government has a lot of non-essential employees hanging around.

I don’t mean to make light of a situation where many people will feel some pain, but it looks like the Government is pretty bloated, but most of us have known that for quite a while.

  1. Chris this is all deliberate, just one big charade. When the US defaults and runs out of money the shit hits the fan. The dollar will be replaced for all international transactions and our fragile economy tanks. At least this is the picture he is hoping for.

    If our dollars worth is based upon our productivity as a nation [GDP]then why would you strangle our economy with countless regulations and saturate our markets with foreign products and rampant illegal immigration. You kill employment and small business, destroy our manufacturing side with corporate taxes. We have been in the tubes for five and a half years plus two under Bush with a democratic House and Senate. Obama takes a firm stand now. Why? Simple, this will allow the perfect financial storm to happen. If he allows it through his deliberate inaction’s he should be impeached and others should be arrested because it is nothing short of treason.

    We don’t even know what goes on behind the scenes with these sneaky bastards. I am always the optimist. I very much believe in our strength as a people but, our media is so complicit in this given the fact that they are manipulating the truth and allowing all of the pieces to fall into place. This is abnormal because it makes zero sense which makes it all dangerously irrational. No one is this stupid unless you have an agenda.

    We are without true patriotic leadership for a reason. That reason is that our President wants to destroy America for his handlers. We still hold the Trump Card as I see it because we are still The Market. Not China, their strength is in us. Their heart beats in our chest and if we collapse so do they along with much of the emerging world. The teleprompter says it all as I see it, especially when you need to set it up to talk to a third grader.
