If a government shutdown includes only “unnecessary services” (military pay not included), why does it take 800,000 people to perform them and why don’t we just cut them permanently?
That’s the question that kept running through my mind as our unrepresenting representatives in Congress through cat turds at each other in the Washington sandbox this week. The left-wingnuts got their panties in a wad over the thought of properly defunding Planned Parenthood; Representative Louise Slaughter went so far as to accuse the GOP of being out to kill women. President Walking Eagle slipped and showed enormous transparency when he called a bill intended to fund only the military through the rest of the year and thereby get that concern off the table a “distraction” – are you listening, beloved servicemen and women? Your Commander In Chief values entitlements to his voting block more than he does your willingness to lay your lives on the line in defense of his freedom to make an idiot out of himself. Again. He is so concerned about what the wacks in the U.N. who hate the United States think he’s willing to illegally send you into Libya but doesn’t see caring for you as worthy of his attention. Only his veto.
Shameful doesn’t even begin to cover it.
