Oh Sweet Jove! The ShutdownPocalypse is Upon Us!

Hide the children, stock up on canned goods and prepare for doom, DOOM we tell you as the midnight deadline has been passed and Harry Reid and the National Socialist Democrat Workers’ Party succeeds in shutting down the government to keep golden Cadillac healthcare plans for themselves and nobody else, taxing grandma and grandpa’s wheelchairs and pacemakers and funemploying millions of American workers because companies can’t afford to keep them anymore.

Cower in terror as the Apocalypse hits thanks to Ogabe’s misadministration’s willingness to compromise and negotiate with Syrian al-Qaeda and Iranian mullahs but NOT Republicans.

Pray for salvation as a terrified nation suffers under the terror reign of no transgender community committees, no extended hours at museums and various and sundry other insufferable indignities.

This is the end, dear friends, the END and we must all stand up at once alongside comrades Ogabe, Reid, McConnell, King, McCain and all of the other heroes who will not see any rest until they have made sure that every last single American has been forced on penalty of imprisonment to pay more for less care, whether they need it or not.

We mean, apart from the unimaginable terrors of having to make do with no more cowboy poetry festivals until this inhumane shutdown is stopped by a total surrender to our Beloved Dear Leader Ogabe and his wise reign, we also must face the inevitable horrors of the Republican party being punished by their voters for not being sufficiently mendacious on the campaign trail, for having committed the unpardonable sin of doing what they promised they would be doing when they were whoring for votes.

Because, if there is one thing we do know, it’s that the voters organizing the fundraisers, running the get out the vote efforts, distributing the fliers and handing over every dime they can afford to help their representatives get elected will not stand, will not STAND for their elected representatives keeping their promises.

If such a thing were to happen, as it seems to be the case right now, they’ll just stay home or even vote for the people who WILL confiscate their property, eliminate their rights and lie to them incessantly because that’s what voters want.

Just remember the horrible, horrible consequences of the Newt Gingrich (HISS! SPIT!) engineered shutdown in 1995. As no enlightened, pragmatic, focused solely on winning RINO hysteric will hesitate to tell you over and over again until you pray for the release of sweet death if only they’ll shut up, Newt’s horribly misguided, uncivil, unpragmatic, pointless political theater (that resulted in the GOP getting what they and their voters wanted, but let’s not talk about THAT!) back in ’95 caused a horrid, endless, devastating bloodbath for the GOP that would never wield meaningful power again.

Because of the, shudder, SHUDDER, SHUTDOWN! Republicans were vilified, ridiculed, hated and utterly destroyed, destroyed in subsequent elections and surely, surely you don’t want THAT to happen again?

Of course, His Imperial Majesty, not believing a single word coming out of a politician’s pie hole, much less a pearl-clutching hysteric like McCain’s, decided to look up the actual numbers. We mean, we’re not perfect, so our memory might be a bit off.

And we found that the horrifying, party-destroying consequences of standing up for principle and what voters wanted and getting a petulant child president to do what he needed to do resulted, in the following election, in a gain of 3 seats in the Senate and the loss of 4 seats in the House.

Both of which remained in Republican control, mind you.

So the GOP back then maintained majorities in both houses at a net loss of 1, ONE seat in exchange for stopping a retarded socialist from destroying the economy, and that is considered “unacceptable losses” by the RINO hysterics?

THAT is the argument that they keep trotting out in favor of going full Neville Chamberlain on Harry Hitler?

Just to set the record straight, once again:

The allegedly “horrible, disastrous consequences” of shutting down the government back in 1995 was maintaining control of both houses of Congress while losing ONE SEAT, NET?

You need better talking points, AllahpunditRoveMcCain.

Thatisall.

P. S. I work for the federal government (yeah, but it’s a paycheck) and there was still coffee here this morning, the lights are still on, my Sooper Sekrit Emerjensy phone didn’t squall like a banshee this morning and tell me not to come in and I suspect the usual flotsam will be standing in the hall all day drinking… Read more »

Let’s see….I woke up this morning as the sun was coming up (government didn’t shut down the sunrise). I took my dog for his morning walk (government shutdown didn’t roll up the streets). Came home and made my morning coffee (electricity wasn’t affected by government shutdown). Turned on Mike and Mike in the morning to get the scores from last… Read more »

Since having a fully operational death star federal government for the last five years has resulted in the indiscriminate monkey-hammering of the economy, we might as well try shutting some of it down to see what happens.

It is fascinating how quickly federal employees become the enemy during these events! WE DON’T NEED YOU! WE’RE FINE WITHOUT YOU! YOU’RE A LEECH! Blah, blah, blah. I work for DoD in a national security capacity. I’m on furlough, as is my entire division. Not saying we’re “essential” for the immediate running of the country, but I’d love to see… Read more »

No dude, no one is saying a DOD employee is the enemy because many like myself believe that actually defending our nation IS essential, in fact it is one of the few governmental duties provided for in our Founding documents.
Making sure crack infested baby factory gets her gubmint cheese is NOT and THAT is the enemy.

Emperor Misha I says: You? The enemy? Of course not, sestrichka moya, and it pisses me off too that FedGovCo can’t get their shit together so actually useful services can get funded.

Oh, yeah… and no. We don’t fall under military. We fall under the DoD, and funded by both ODNI and DoD, so it becomes a bit messy.

Yeah, Nicki, know what you mean. As a mid-level GS employee I have basically 3 positions, Contingency Planner (don’t ask, you don’t want to know) Emergency Manager (my real area of expertise) and Anti-Terrorism Officer. So, this morning, I get told to drive 30 miles to work to “perform an orderly shutdown” which meant signing the paperwork putting me on… Read more »

I understand that over 800,000 were “sent home”. Non-essential, eh? This speaks VOLUMES about just how bloated Uncle Sam has become.

Time to start cutting. Start at the top. :em01:

Here’s my question. Did anyone here NOT see this coming? I mean really, in this political “climate”. In the end there I almost found the whole thing humorous, it was like a fucking game of hot potato. Last one stuck with the bill is the loser…. Are the furloughed employees eligible for Unemployment? So what happens now? Should we be… Read more »

Air Force One grounded?? The WH minder and flunkie squad, as well as the people really needed to protect a *REAL* President are caught in the shut down?

While I feel sorry for those such as Nicki and Vulcanrider who actually do something worthwhile and are caught in the middle, listening to HUD and HHS employees whinging about being furloughed brought a smile to my face.

Jaybear, Colonel of Imperial Ancient Artillery @ #: I think I saw either the same quote or something very much like it. Good question indeed.

President Obama has been playing golf at a furious pace this year – already heading out more times than during any year of his presidency – but the government shutdown raises the prospect that his favorite leisure activity is about to be suspended. It’s unclear how a presidential golf outing could be justified as “essential,” which is the general standard… Read more »

Could we find funds in the WH budget, (not shutdown??), that would pay for two of those golf courses of the world driving and putting simulations?

Apparently Air Force One has been grounded due to the government shutdown.

A question has been posed regarding Golf Cart One.

Has it been parked as well?

And on another note, Harry Reid put his foot in it again. He tried to blame the Republicans for children dying of cancer. One problem. The House offered to send a bill to the senate and fund the NIH to prevent just this issue. Harry asked ‘WHY WOULD WE WANT TO’ HELP ONE KID WITH CANCER??
