OK, not quite. I’m being dramatic, and I thought it was a cool title.
But there is definitely a groundswell of opposition to Washington in general. The President’s approval ratings are down, and the ratings for Congress are some of the lowest in history. The GOP compromised, compromised, compromised and compromised some more, with the Democrats tossing every proposal into the dumpster without so much as a read. No compromise. No discussion.
Because nothing but full implementation of their agenda will do, the American people be damned.
Give us what we want, and we’ll negotiate with you later.
The other day, the GOP finally cut its own balls off and sent the left pretty much everything they wanted, along with its collective testicles in a nice, golden box.
Speaker John Boehner told House Republicans Saturday morning that his efforts to strike a deal with President Barack Obama are at a standstill.
There is no agreement, Boehner said in a room in the Capitol Saturday, and there are no negotiations between House Republicans and the White House, since Obama rejected the speaker’s effort to lift the debt ceiling for six weeks and reopen government while setting up a budget negotiating process.
Had enough yet?
National monuments have been “closed,” due to the government shutdown.
People have been booted off their property that happens to sit on federal land.
Private businesses have been forced to shut down by government force.
The majority of the intelligence community has been furloughed.
Death benefits for the families of heroes who died in war have been halted, forcing private charities to step up to the plate.
And completely by accident, I’m sure, EBT systems malfunctioned yesterday, owing to a computer glitch (or KOCHBUSHTEAPARTYRACISTEXTREMISTSHUTUP!).
All this because the Congress is finally doing the will of the American people – as is its job – at least until it caved to the horde of leftist bullies.
Well, the people are done with this inept Congress, this arrogant, stubborn President and their corruption and inability to do their jobs.
Yesterday, my friend Bruce recorded a crowd of TEA Party activists and tourists walking right past the barricades on the National Mall and tearing down police tape at the Lincoln Memorial and walking right in. This was after Glenn Beck held a Clean-up effort at the National Mall yesterday. The protest was peaceful, and Park Police decided it wasn’t worth preventing peaceful people, to whom the monuments belong, after all, from seeing their history!
This weekend, the truckers’ protest against DC continues. The protest is meant to draw attention to the dissatisfaction with DC. Truckers are traveling around at exactly the speed limit, blocking all lanes.
Got your attention yet, legisleeches and White House?
Today, hundreds of veterans marched on DC (I’m home with some crud I brought back from Europe, and can’t seem to shake, or I’d be there with them). They took down barricades that were blocking their monuments and respectfully placed them in front of the White House. They took back their city.
Can you hear us yet, DC?
And if you can’t hear us. I can’t wait to see what happens when EBT is shut down for any length of time. Veterans and TEA Party activists are peaceful and calm. Wait until the natives start getting restless, because they can’t get their free shit. Riots? Looting? It’s a distinct possibility.
While I’m not sure what will happen – if anything at all, I will say this: Until further notice, I will be armed wherever I go. Those of you in gun-free utopias like Chicago, DC, Detroit, etc. – you pathetic losers are on your own.
