Thanks for the responses. I’m not as scared now as I was when I posted.
Good going Republicans ,I’m glad Republicans didn’t back down.
shut the government down forever( that is my dream)
Are you sure? Did anyone go outside and look up?
"Help! I'm the Federal Government. And I've fallen! And I CAN'T GET UP!"
This is horrible! The federal government can no longer tax me. I have to sit here, helpless, while my bank account grows. What if it gets to be too much? Will it asplode? Oh, Joe Biden, come save me!
PS A bit political guerilla, but just got the great idea. Go around to decrepit looking US postal boxes and affix stickers that say:
Then of course get the heck out of there. Just sayin'. This was like the "Obama" face sticker right where the horrendous gasoline price displays after pumping a full tank of gas.
Did they shut down the NSA and send everyone home?
I am pleased too; and stunned, I didn’t think the republicans had it in them! Speaking as a DOD civilian employee who lived through the last one in ‘95; the world did nome to an end. This too shall pass.
Constitutional Scholars/Lawyers: In view of the shutdown in the last hour or so and the Democrats scream it will be the "end of the world as we know it" and all Federal services including those impacting internal and national security, can States and Localities Make EMERGENCY DECLARATIONS and say that "Since the US Federal Government has officially shut down, and border security/national sovereignty is primarily the domain of the Federal Government, yet our own localities (states) suffer from an extreme Illegal Alien influx, fiscal drain and crime problem, we are hereby assuming all matters of detention, citizenship or legal alien status confirmation and if necessary expulsion from the United States of those in our State (County) found to not be on US soil with proper I.C.E. legal authorization, until such time as the Federal Government can resume these police powers by themselves, for the sake of the protection of our citizens. This policy shall continue until further notice."?
I’m so happy!
Good going Republicans ,Im glad Republicans didnt back down.
Im glad the government is shut down. none of the government is needed except for the military and border control and that is it , get rid of the IRS, EPA, FEC, FCC, gov schools, NASA( the global warming hoax pushers) etc
“I am pleased too; and stunned, I didnt think the republicans had it in them!”
First Syria, then the Russians and now the Americans. That’s three strike Barry! You’re outta there!
October 1st is my birthday. I think I’m going to have a nice day :)
The nations hospitals are still functioning, for now. Today ushers in new reimbursement and measurement schemes designed to not pay for services rendered. I’ll pose the nasty question: How many industries will survive when they are mandated by government edict to give away goods and services? I’ll give hospitals and clinics in non urban locations a year maybe.
This just in Welfare recipients, democRATS, village idiots, Obongo staff, illegal aliens, Food Stamp money exchangers, PETA Puffers, Democrat Underground (FEMA-Nazis), peter puffers, RINOs and the unemployed are committing suicide at unprecedented rates. Republicans call for an Emergency Government Shutdown extension so as to ensure the dumbest of the dumb are also given a chance to commit suicide. More later .
Dingy hairy’s fault.
Who will frisk us before we get on the plane?
Pray America is Waking Up
so that to get things going again, there had to be debate and we could get rid of many alphabet agencies altogether.
i wouldnt mind if a shutdown meant all politicians seats are open too. good ones would return, iffy ones might be defeated.
Frankly If I were president every federal employee would be asked to turn in their resignation and sit for rehiring.
I remember Bush tried to do that with a few departments, and they refused and he backed down. I would send in the Sheriff and remove them and lock up the buildings.
The elected government is bad enough but the lifers in the bureaucracy is what kills us.
