The shutdown fearmongering continues apace, and Time magazine is dutifully passing along the administration's talking points. Here's the latest: the government work stoppage could drive cash-starved spies into the arms of other countries. It would make otherwise patriotic Americans become traitors.
An ongoing government shutdown heightens the risk that American intelligence officers could be flipped as double agents, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Wednesday.
How stupid can you get. It's day One.
Awwwww, any such spies just need to suck it up! We get saddled with obamacare and we just have to take it - so they can take this as well. If they’re patriots, they stick. If they’re not, they run. What’s the big deal?
The shutdown will cause the icecaps to melt too.
This article is from the Onion, right?
Who better to know about having intel and being traitors than the employees of TIME (well other than those at NYT, WP, MSNBC, CNN, etc.)?
I thought that whistle blowers were already considered to be traitors by exposing corruption in the administration.
You mean TIME magazine where Jay Carney previously served as Washington Bureau Chief - no bias there I’m sure.
The sky is falling, etc.
Yeah, the nat’l intelligence director is saying they can’t “guarantee the nation’s safety ...”
like they could before, and,
pay us or we shoot the dog.
Did you hear a lot of beaches are shut down as well? Apparently with the government shut down there is no control of the tides...scary times..
Here is one of my “Talking Points:”
If OBAMACARE SUBSIDY HEALTH INSURANCE TAX, aka OSHIT, is so popular, then why isnt Mr. Michelle Obama enrolled?
This is enrollment day number TWO, Barry: tick-tock - - -
Is there still a “Time magazine?” I remember such a title years ago. But thought it became so politically slanted and irrelevant that it died out.
To quote the left’s idea of an intellectual woman, “What difference does it make?”
After all, the MSM already provides the enemy pretty much whatever it wants.
And it manages to do this while simultaneously covering up all negative information concerning worshippers of an unnamed child boinking “prophet” and a certain unnamed buota baby resume hiding moron of a president.
Planes will be falling out of the skies.
The World Ends Tomorrow!
Pray America is Waking Up
“How stupid can you get. It’s day One.”
Remember something, many of these shutdown stories were written WEEKS AGO, and previewed on Kos, as well.
Well, the NSA goons are already traitors for spying on us.
Day 2 and desperation is setting in..
