What part of "government shutdown" do you not understand?<quoted text>
Appearances matter, Hip and if you'd take just an objective gander at appearances, and if you can control yourself from being a run of the mill, Nathan Hale I only regret I have but one life to give to Obama, democrat for a minute and just be a plain old American, you might get it.
Putting up a piece of SCOTCH TAPE in front of the WW11 memorial would have been too much. It was a disgusting piece of theatre and I don't care how easily it was taken down. It was grossly offensive, it was wrenching and it was unnecessarily ordered by some goon in the OBAMA administration. Or maybe even the head goon.
People never cease to amaze. All these extreme-right self-absorbed pseudo-anarchist tea-swillers have been chanting for 5 years now that government is bad, very bad, can't do nuthin right.
But shut it down for a couple of days and all of a sudden they can't wail loud enough for the loss of government facilities and services.
How's this for a disgusting piece of theater? Among the multiple piecemeal bits of the budget House Republicans have advanced is funding for the WIC program.
Soooo.... they're willing to pretend to care about a Women and Infant Children's wealth-redistribution program, while their ultimate goal is to prevent women and infant children from getting help to get insurance because it's "socialist".
Ain't that a pip?
