Naw....no amount of barrycading is gonna stop me....

Now, as reported at American Glob, Barrycade Earns Entry At Urban Dictionary

The definition seems to fit:

1. barrycade

1. A barrier (usually temporary) that exists for no reason.

2. A barrier erected for political reasons.

“Dude, Obama barrycaded the park.”

“Hey, let’s put up some barrycades to keep those World War II veterans away from the open-air World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., in order to try and score some cheap political points.”

What I've been wondering about the barrycades...




When the government does something stupid, I can always count on the internet to satisfy my appetite for sarcasm and snark…

Americans are pretty fed up with Washington…

…including former Star Trek-er George Takei who posted this to his Facebook page:

Time for furloughs? Imgur wants to get this party started:

Budgetary snark abounds:

And movie memes:

The website IsTheGovernmentShutDown.com is actually getting traffic.

And president Obama is outsourcing his tech issues:

Exit question:

Think about this for a second; They blocked the WWII Memorial to the guys that stormed Normandy Beach, beat down Rommel in Africa, and kicked the CR@P out of the Japanese at Iwo Jima. How embarrassed are they going to be when the park rangers get whupped up on by guys using walkers, wheelchairs, and canes? How stupid will they look if they try to arrest these folks on camera?

Sorry....since the government has taken over the Silliness thread, things are bit delayed and we are working through the glitches.

Seems the pandas are pretty upset that their "Panda Cam" has been shut off

Those barricades were supposed to be a photo op for Obama, but the WWII vets stormed the beaches again showing that Obama’s facism will fail. They should be a graphic reminder to everyone that it is Obama and Reid who shut down government. Sadly the media doesn’t see it that way.

In other news, McLame is leading the Obama charge against Mike Lee and Ted Cruz.

He needs to change his last name to Head and his first name to Richard.

Irish Sugar Test

One day an Irishman goes into a pharmacy, reaches into his pocket and takes out a small Irish whiskey bottle and a teaspoon.

He pours from the bottle onto the teaspoon and offers it to the chemist.

“Could you taste this for me, please?”

The chemist takes the teaspoon, puts it in his mouth, swills the liquid around and swallows it.

“Does that taste sweet to you?” says Paddy.

“No, not at all,” says the chemist.

“Oh that’s a relief,” says Paddy. “The doctor told me to come here and get my urine tested for sugar.”

Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi walked into a bar.

The bartender said, "What is this, a joke?"
