Fools and Charlatans: The Federal Government Shutdown

Mocha Pikachu along with over a million others is at home today when I should have been at work.   I’m one of the over a million people affected by the Federal Government shutdown. Newsflash to all of you Republican trolls in Congress so happy to stick it to the President, all you’ve done is hurt a bunch of federal employees and private sector employees.  Yes, even the precious private sector that y’all profess to love, and of which I’m a member, is affected too.  My employer is still trying to figure out what to do with us.

So while y’all slack-jowled bastards get to pat yourselves on the back for a job done horribly, we will sit and ponder how long our savings (if we are lucky enough to have any) will sustain us.  It’s expensive as hell to live in the DC Metro Area and federal employees and contractors aren’t ballin’ out of control they way that some would have you believe.

We’re regular Americans.  We have mortgage/rent and bills to pay.  We have families to support.  We’re not idealistic fools that still get paid no matter how many lives we destroy.

What the hell does it say about this nation that the biggest internal fights are always about civil rights and the public good?

What is so wrong about letting people get access to insurance and not having pre-existing conditions clauses?  It is not the Universal Healthcare that would normally have y’all pissing your pants.  Insurance companies are about to get paid off the Affordable Care Act.  I thought y’all were pro-business.

Or are you more anti-black than anything else?

All I know is Boehner better put down the MAC NC42 Studio Fix powder, dry those bitchmade tears, and go start kicking some ass in his own party.  2013 is not 1996.   Americans are worse off due to Corporate and Government mismanagement.   Things will get ugly.
