BUDGET SHUTDOWNS

In 1980 when Jimmy Carter, a Democrat, was president, congress shut down the government.

During the Ronald Reagan administration, a Republican, the government was shut down a number of times. All the shutdowns were by the Republican administration and not the Democrats.

In Oct. of 1990, George H. W. Bush, a Republican, vetoed the budget and shut down the government for 3 days of the Columbus Day weekend.

In Nov. and Dec. of 1995 and Jan. 1996, when Bill Clinton, a Democrat, was president, the Republican majority in congress led by Newt Gingrich, a Republican, shut down for 6 days in the first shut down and 21 days in the second shut down.

Now, with Barrack Obama, a Democrat, the Republicans led by John Boehner, a Republican, and the Republican house is trying to shut down the government again.

NOW FOLKS, ARE WE SEEING A TREND HERE

It seems like every time the government is shut down over the budget, the Republicans are behind it. Wether they are in power or not, this seems to be their answer when they CAN NOT get their way.

NOTHING BUT SPOILED CHILDREN HAVING A TEMPER TANTRUM.

ANOTHER REPUBLICAN IDIOT

The REPUBLICAN governor of New Jersey has decided that his personal beliefs are more important than the law of the land.

A New Jersey court ruled that same sex marriage was legal and MUST be allowed.

The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that same sex marriage is legal and MUST be allowed.

The Constitution of The United States says that all people are equal under the law and therefore, same sex marriage MUST be alowed.

And the Republican governor of New Jersey. CHRIS CHRISTY, has decided that he and his personal beliefs are much more important than the law or the courts rulings.

Another typical Republican who has decided that the laws of the land, the rulings of the courts and the will of the people, do not apply to him or his personal opinions and beliefs.

WASHINGTON IDIOTS AT IT AGAIN

Well folks, here we are with the idiots in Washington at it again. Acting just like spoiled 2 year olds who can’t get their way. It’s budget time and the Republicans are having another temper tantrum, lying on the floor, kicking their feet and screaming. “We are going to shut down the government unless we get OUR way and our way is that you eliminate Obama care”.

WHY ARE THE REPUBLICANS SO DEAD SET AGAINST OBAMA CARE.

Now I don’t fully understand Obama care and I don’t know if it is good or bad for either myself or the country. But here are the facts that I do know.

On April 12, 2006, Mitt Romney, as Governor of Massachusetts, signed into law the Massachusetts Health Care Law. At that time the Republicans called it a major break threw in health care reform. The Republican leaders in congress all thought that this was the greatest thing since apple pie.

When Mitt Romney ran for president, he bragged about ALL the good he did for Massachusetts and ALL the Republicans agreed that as governor, he was fantastic.

Now, along comes Obama and takes this wonderful Republican plan, and makes some modifications so that it will work for the whole country.

AND THE REPUBLICANS ARE UP IN ARMS AND READY TO SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT OVER IT.

So I have asked the Republicans, “IF THIS PLAN WAS THAT GOOD FOR MASSACHUSETTS AND MITT ROMNEY WAS A MAN WITH GREAT FORESIGHT, WHY IS IT NO GOOD FOR THE REST OF THE COUNTRY”.

Is it because a Democrat thought to use it for everyone or was it because it was Obama that thought to use it

So far,  the only response that I have received from the Republicans is NO answer at all or they look at me as if I am an alien with 2 heads.

AND SO I ASK AGAIN;

“IF THIS PLAN WAS THAT GOOD FOR MASSACHUSETTS AND MITT ROMNEY WAS A MAN WITH GREAT FORESIGHT, WHY IS IT NO GOOD FOR THE REST OF THE COUNTRY”.

HERE WE GO AGAIN

Another nut case goes of the deep end and we have another mass shooting. This time at the navy yard in Washington, D.C. And the gun control idiots are screaming again.

First, D.C. has some of the strictest gun laws in the country.

Second, we are finding out that the shooter has a history of mental problems. He has been arrested 3 times in the past. 2 of those times where on gun related issues. According to news reports, his parents say he was suffering from PTSD.

Why are these people not on the same list that we put criminals on. When anyone goes to buy a gun, they are subject to a background check. If they have a criminal record. THEY CANNOT BUY A GUN.

Why do we not put the mentally disturbed people on that same list. With every mass shooting we have had, we find out afterwards that the person that did the shooting has had mental problems.

In this case, his problems and previous arrests where gun related. He should have been on the list for a background check and should have been denied access to any type of a weapon.

WHEN THE FUCK WILL THIS COUNTRY SMARTEN UP AND STOP ALLOWING  THE MENTALLY ILL TO BUY WEAPONS.

PASSPORT APPLICATION

Dear Mrs. Ms. Or Sir: I’m in the process of renewing my passport and still cannot believe this. How is it that Radio Shack has my address and telephone number and knows that I bought a cable TV from them in 1987 (23 years ago), and yet, the Federal Government is still asking me where I was born and on what date. For *&%# sake, do you guys do this by hand? Ever heard of computers?

My birth date you have in my social security file. It’s on EVERY income tax form I’ve filed for the past 35+ years. It’s on my Medicare health insurance card and my driver’s license, it’s on the last eight damned passports I’ve had, it’s on every stupid customs declaration form I’ve had to fill out before being allowed off the plane for the last 30+ years. And it’s on all those census forms that we have to do at election times. Would somebody please take note, once and for all, that my mother’s name is Maryanne, my father’s name is Robert and I’m reasonably confident that neither name is likely to change between now and when I die.

Between you and me, I’ve had enough of this bureaucratic B.S!  You send the application to my house, then you ask me for my #*&#%*& address. What is going on? You must have a gang of bureaucratic Neanderthal morons working there! Look at my damn picture. Do I look like Bin Laden? And “No,” I don’t want to dig up Yasser Arafat, for *#!& sakes. I just want to go and park my ass on a sandy beach. And would someone please tell me, why would you give a damn whether I plan on visiting a farm in the next 15 days? If I ever got the urge to do something weird to a chicken or a goat, believe you me, I’d sure as heck not want to tell anyone!

Well, I have to go now because I have to go to the other end of the city and get another #*@&#^@*@ copy of my birth certificate, to the tune of $100. Would it be so difficult to have all the services in the same area so I could get a new passport the same day? Nooooo, that would require planning and organization. And it would be too logical for the @&^*^%@% government. You’d rather have us running all over the place like chickens with our heads cut off. Then, we have to find some ass*&%$ to confirm that it’s really me in the damn picture – you know, the one where we’re not allowed to smile.
Hey, you know why we can’t smile? We’re totally pissed off!

Signed- An Irate Citizen.

P.S. Remember what I wrote about getting someone to confirm that the picture is me? Well, my family has been in the United States of America since 1776. I have served in the military for something over 35 years and have had security clearances up the ying yang. However, I have to get someone important to verify who I am – you know, someone like my doctor….WHO WAS BORN AND RAISED IN INDIA ! And you ass&*%$ want to run our health care system?????

I DIDN’T WRITE THIS AND I WISH I KNEW WHO DID, SO I COULD GIVE HIM CREDIT.
