Political Theatre, Day 12 of the ShutdownPocalypse

Suddenly, completely out of the blue, not at all having to do with Princess Barry and her Nazi Democrat Party needing theatre for their ShutdownPocalypse, the EBT system goes on the fritz due to a “computer upgrade glitch” (h/t Ace of Spades).

Oh absolutely. It couldn’t possibly be more than a coinkydink that this happens just about exactly when Princess Barry feels that the unconditional surrender to her demands is within reach. Nope. That’s just silly.

It was probably the Koch Brothers. Or Bigfoot.

    Get your Eagles Up people! The truckers got threatened by DOT. Most all who were to participate were independents. They are barely making do, I know, my sister is married to one. It´s been the hardest times for him these past years with Obanzo Bean and his goons running things. I´ve personally had to bail them out several times to the tune of thousands of $. These men and women wanted to very much make a BIG RIG statement, but, you lose your CDL, you lose your livelihood. These goons grab everyone by the short hairs as a first tactic. Don´t blame the truckers, they wanted to be there. Like all of us though, they´ve got to feed their families and pay the mortgage. Lord help me, I hate this admin.

    Obama admin allows government union reps to work during shutdown

    The Obama administration quietly changed its furlough guidance Friday to allow government employees who are also union representatives to return to work and receive a regular paycheck during the government shutdown.

    On the fifth day of the government shutdown the House unanimously passed a a bill approving back pay for 800,000 furloughed federal workers, a rare moment of bipartisan unity, even as House Republicans and Democrats continued their bitter budget standoff.

    The vast majority of those workers do not serve as union representatives and will not receive a pay check as long as the government remains shuttered. But the Office of Personnel Management Friday opened the door for some of their co-workers, those who serve as union representatives, to return to work and get their regular paycheck.

    People in Ohio, Michigan and 15 other states found themselves temporarily unable to use their food stamp debit-style cards on Saturday, after a routine test of backup systems by vendor Xerox Corp. resulted in a system failure. Xerox announced late in the evening that access has been restored for users in the 17 states affected by the outage, hours after the first problems were reported.

    U.S. Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Courtney Rowe underscored that the outage was not related to the government shutdown.

    Earlier Saturday shoppers left carts of groceries behind at a packed Market Basket grocery store in Biddeford, Maine, because they couldn’t get their benefits, said shopper Barbara Colman, of Saco, Maine. The manager put up a sign saying the EBT system was not in use. Colman, who receives the benefits, called an 800 telephone line for the program and it said the system was down due to maintenance, she said.

    That’s a problem. There are a lot of families who are not going to be able to feed children because the system is being maintenanced,” Colman said. She planned to reach out to local officials. “You don’t want children going hungry tonight because of stupidity,” she said.

    Spoken as only a true blue parasite could. IT’S FOR THE CHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDREN….!!!!!

    Here’s a newsflash snookums….while you were rolling your eyes about those “redenck preppers” and sneering at people that actually work for a living while you inhaled by the pounds twinkies, cheetoos and steak ….we were planning.
    If every fucking store in the neighborhood closed it’s god damn doors tomorrow – I’d be able to eat, my family would eat for a minimum of 30 days, that’s when the meat would run out, after that there’s another 60 day supplies of dried food – Store’s still ain’t open…. Ranger Rick’s gonna be real fucking busy chasing my ass for ‘poaching’ because I WILL take deer and whatever else I need to take if things get dicey.

    So whine all you want about “stupid” because it only makes it all the more obvious that the stupidity of people like you is an epidemic. You can’t shop for ONE fucking day…. now your kids are going hungry….you make me want to vomit.

    This is the latest parle We will admit;
    Therefore to Our best mercy give yourselves;
    Or like to men proud of destruction
    Defy Us to Our worst: for, as I am your God-King,
    A name that in My thoughts becomes Me best,
    If I begin the battery once again,
    I will not leave the half-achieved America
    ‘Til in her ashes she lie buried.
    The gates of mercy shall be all shut up,
    And the flesh’d Obamakorps, rough and hard of heart,
    In liberty of bloody hand shall range
    With conscience wide as hell, mowing like grass
    Your fresh-fair virgins and your flowering infants.
    What is it then to Me, if impious war,
    Array’d in flames like to the prince of fiends,
    Do, with his smirch’d complexion, all fell feats
    Enlink’d to waste and desolation?
    What is’t to Me, when you yourselves are cause,
    If your pure maidens fall into the hand
    Of hot and forcing violation?
    What rein can hold licentious wickedness
    When down the hill he holds his fierce career?
    We may as bootless spend Our vain command
    Upon the enraged soldiers in their spoil
    As send precepts to the leviathan
    To come ashore. Therefore, you men of Congress,
    Take pity of your districts and of your people,
    Whiles yet My FSA is in My command;
    Whiles yet the cool and temperate wind of grace
    O’erblows the filthy and contagious clouds
    Of heady murder, spoil, and villany.
    If not, why, in a moment look to see
    The blind and bloody gangsta with foul hand
    Defile the locks of your shrill-shrieking daughters;
    Your fathers taken by the silver beards,
    And their most reverend heads dash’d to the walls,
    Your naked infants spitted upon pikes,
    Whiles the mad mothers with their howls confused
    Do break the clouds, as did the wives of Jewry
    At Herod’s bloody-hunting slaughtermen.
    What say you? will you yield, and this avoid,
    Or, guilty in defence, be thus destroy’d?

    Three days, you stupid cracka motherfuckers.
    Three days of the spigot turned off and you. will. burn.
    The military? Mine.
    The police? Mine.
    My people? Mine.
    La Raza? Mine.
    The press? Mine.
    The business community? Mine.
    The churches? Mine.
    “Your” children? Mine.
    “Your” leaders? Mine.
    You lot can’t even organize a fuck in a whorehouse.
    Now go pay your fucking taxes; there’s Affordable Care to be had and Immigration to reform.

    Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is coming under fire to resign in the wake of a two-week Obamacare roll out that CBS News calls “nothing short of disastrous.”

    In a surprising development, Sebelius’s longtime friend and fellow Kansan, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS), has gone on record as the first Republican calling for Sebelius’s ouster.

    “Americans are tired of the Sebelius spin,” said Roberts. “They can see Obamacare has failed them. We need a secretary who can admit when enough is enough.”

    Criticism of Sebelius’s management of the Obamacare launch has intensified in the wake of a blistering interview last week with fellow progressive Jon Stewart of The Daily Show. Stewart asked Sebelius numerous times why President Barack Obama has given big businesses a one-year Obamacare waiver but not everyday Americans. Sebelius refused to answer.

    Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Friday joined Roberts in calling for Sebelius’s resignation. Roberts is a member of two committees with jurisdiction on Obamacare.

    “The American people should not have to tolerate the chaos of the exchange, or the ill effects of Obamacare for one more day,” said Roberts. “They are already suffering in a terrible economy. They have higher taxes, higher premiums and great uncertainty about access to quality healthcare. We need a Secretary who realizes that.”

    Obama cant fire failures, there would be nothing left, including himself
    the lefts biggest fear is coming true, the worthlessness and complete incompetence of their personal jesus, community organizer, member of the “choom” gang, and nothing else, is being exposed, as is the entire democrat agenda. barak Hussein oblamer and the entire prog/lib democrat agenda is a complete and total failure destroying the country. everything is worse now than it was when he took office, other than the phony stock market and its only where it is because the fed pumps 85 BILLION a month of phony money into it,enriching the 1%,the very people he demonizes in public but bootlicks and takes bribes from in private.

    everything he has done has made us worse off than when he took office. hes a loser, destroyer and a poser and they know it, but since he is their messiah they will deny it and continuously fellate him to completion to the end. no matter how bad it is for the country, all that matters to them is propping up their dear leader.

    Last night, in honor of the EBT shutdown, I made a crockpot of chili. Lessee…the beef was a little pricey (cause it’s grass-fed beef), but after the beans, tomatoes, and gr pepper (which I get from Aldi in packs of three), I figure it cost about eight bucks, tops, and it would easily feed a family of four for a couple of days. Add in some homemade corn bread (another buck or so), and you have an inexpensive and long-lasting nutritious meal. The problem these days is that these women don’t cook anymore. It’s easy to open a can. It’s generally also more expensive.

    I’ve been reading about the Million Vet March. This morning hundreds of people stormed the Lincoln Memorial with a TWAT team in full gear onsite. The TWATs and NPS rangers just stood and watched. A bunch of people then took some of the barrycades to the White House.
    People also took down the barrycades at the National Mall and piled some of them up next to a “recycle” sign.
    Sarah posted that she was at the WWII memorial this morning but no details on what happened there.
    Pictures of the truckers protest show that there’s a lot more going on than the MSM wants us to know.

    Update to my post at # 18:
    People are taking down the barrycades at all of the monuments that have been closed off and either piling them up or taking them to the White House.
