If youâ€™ve read anything I have had to say about Boehner and Cantor you would probably guess I havenâ€™t been particularly impressed with either. If they actually stick to their guns enough to shut down the government I think at least a little grudging respect is in order. If they prevail on all points coming out of the shutdown then we have a real chance off turning Bacha Bereesh* out of the White House.
I do want to make clear we are talking chump change here and if this is the best they can do we are sunk. It is a start and Paul Ryanâ€™s budget is a huge leap in the right direction. But even Ryanâ€™s budget is somewhere between a temporary fix where everything asplodes again in a few decades or worse a way we can actually sustain big government, FOREVER.
Why do Republicans insist on fixing crap instead of throwing it on the dung heap?
But back to my original purpose. If there is a shutdown the winning side will almost certainly be the loudest side. In a couple of days millions of leeches (read government workers and non-essential recipients), leftwing pundits (read communists) and the establishments, Republican and Democrat, will be shouting, emailing, letter writing, Op-Edâ€™ing, sobbing , whining, and dumping trash on Boehnerâ€™s lawn.
This raises a couple of questions.
First, how is Boehner going to get all of the drunken congressional Democrats and staffers off his lawn? Does somebody make a BushHog with a bagger?
Second, what can the Tea Party wing of the nation do to make sure we are louder than the plunderers?
The future of America, be it a Republic ruled by law or tyrannical mob rule followed by dictatorship and despair, may well hang in the balance, WILL WE BE HEARD?
Will Tea Partiers go back in the pouch?
We can set aside the fact Obama grew up as a cute little boy in an Islamic nation, he has proven since his inauguration he lives to dance for gay men. Witness his abandonment of DADT, DOMA and the Boy Scouts.
