When Kids Ask What GOP Stands For

I tell them it means “Government Obstructionist Party”.

They shutdown the government rather than pass a budget and raise the debt ceiling.

Consequently the economy lost $24 billion dollars for the quarter.

And the Congressional members did not lose a dime of income during this shutdown.

Here is a list of names of the 144 obstructionists that voted NO on the House of Representatives bill that raised the debt ceiling.  All of them are members of the GOP.

Here is a quote to think about.  “The extreme right has 90 seats in the House,” Mr. Echevarria, CEO of Deloitte, said. “Occupy Wall Street has no seats.”

Please make a note of these for the 2014 election so we can even the score.

Zombies in Congress

I recently came to the realization that our US Congress is as effective as a group of zombies.  Then a thought hit me like a bolt of lighting on a normally clear day with zombies all around.  Some of the Congressional members MUST BE ZOMBIES!

Could one or all of the following Congressmen be zombies?  Each said something similar to this, “Failure to raise the debt ceiling is NOT a problem.”   Only a brainless shell of a human being would say such a thing.

Here are some special radial isotope photos that show these Congressmen have no hearts!

Even John Boehner is worried.

So everyone needs to be careful out there and question what any Congressional member says.  Any one of them could be a zombie that grunts mindless chatter.

Trucks To Tighten Beltway

Truckers are very upset over Congress.   Consequently, they are threatening to jam the DC Interstate 495 aka the DC beltway this weekend.  They are calling it “Truckers Ride for the Constitution”.

Truckers are upset over things like arming al Qaeda linked Syrian rebels.  Earl Conlon, an organizer of the event, told US News, “We’re not asking for impeachment, we’re asking for the arrest of everyone in government who has violated their oath of office.”

Earl was unavailable to comment on whether that included Republicans demanding repeal of Obamacare for the 42nd time.

Unfortunately members of Congress will miss the festivities because they are holed up in their exclusive gyms while thinking about the Federal shutdown.

Congressional members are using the gym to sleep and take showers but must use the same towels.  That is because the laundry service is unavailable due to the Federal shutdown. That is almost as bad as not being able to get food stamps.

Someone commented that Congress is starting to smell like a post Halloween jack-o-lantern.

Maybe the smell will thaw out our frozen government.
