You're Welcome

I take a day off to relax and read only to drift from my state of  rem sleep to find the government shut down.

Isn't it wonderful.

If I'd of known a simple day off would restore a partial restoration of state's rights I'd of taken two days vacation.

  2. With the resident's proclivity of writing unconstitutional executive orders to bypass congress at his whim, I don't expect much to come out of this. He'll just EO the funding to continue and the Constitution be hanged.

    1. I'm willing to bet the ink, even as we speak, has been applied to paper. Let's enjoy this while we are still able. Thanks, my good friend.

  3. I wish they would shut down a whole year, give us all a break.

  4. Since the Chief Executive believes he can choose which laws he'll enforce, perhaps we should likewise choose which laws we'll bother to obey.

    Seems only fair, and he's all about "fairness", right? :)

  5. I am willing to bet that if it was not announced no one on the civilian level would have noticed. Except those waiting for government issued items.

  6. I had a few moments of panic, when I realized I wouldn't be able to visit Old Faithful, but then I remembered I wasn't planning on visiting Yellowstone, don't really care if it's open and wish we'd quit spending taxpayer money for the top of a volcano.

    1. You know how many people work at Old Faithful? they feel differently. I'm sure.

    2. Rat, I'm sure Old Faithful and the critters of the forest and the streams and mountains can take care of themselves. If anything the state should be responsible, not the federal government. The federal tit is broke and I for one am tired of my dollars refilling the bag for leeches and parasites.

  7. As long as it just means parks and museums are closed I won't worry much. But they said on Fox tonight that it is going to negatively impact veterans health care and that's not good.

    1. Health care is available if we need it...always has been. Scare tactics.

  9. I think Congress should all be furloughed and see how each of them likes losing part of their paycheck.

    1. Oops, like them and their Obamacare exemption.

  10. The major shame of this is that 75% of it is still functioning, and still spending. Lets furlough Mr. Obama.

  12. I believe you should lay the blame on Obamacare. Yes, Obama gets the blame, the same Obama government that gave the following instructions.

    “It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”

    I always try to err on the side of Freedom.

    Thank you for the nice comment, my friend.
