Shut it all down

Shut it all down

I hear the government might have to shut down. That’s the best news I’ve heard in months. Let’s shut it all down.

Turnabout is fair play, after all.

If government can shut down our businesses, our jobs, and our schools, it’s only fair that we can shut them down. If government can deem some of us “essential” and others “non-essential,” it’s only fair that we can do the same to them.

And I deem every last one of these parasitic blood-suckers “non-essential.” So shut it down. Shut it all down.

Board up the windows, turn out the lights, chain the doors shut, and call it a day.

Shut it all down.

While we Americans were struggling to pay our bills, these assholes could spend our money as much as they wanted. What’s a few trillion dollars added to the national debt?

Since the start of this pandemic, Americans have seen their savings dwindle, their income stagnate, the cost of living rise. And all the while that was happening to us, these awful people were spending trillions ostensibly for “COVID relief.”

When they said “We’re all in this together,” they didn’t include themselves.

So while we tightened our belts, reduced our expenses, and lived within our means, they just kept spending.

In fact, they’re not done. They want to spend another five trillion we don’t have. But they need the debt ceiling lifted to do it because, unlike us, these guys never have to worry about not having enough money to pay the bills.

Do you think you could call your credit card company and say, “Hey, I’d like you to remove my spending limit so that I can add an unlimited debt to my credit card. Oh, and I won’t be paying it back.”

We don’t need these people. In fact, if every one of them was deemed non-essential and sent home tomorrow, we’d probably be far better off.

So shut it down. Shut it all down.

Shutter them all – every department. And send them all home, every last cabinet member, every lawmaker, every single bureaucrat, and every staffer — from chief of staff to “strategic communications” director to assistant deputy director of “social media engagement.”

We don’t care where you go, but you can’t stay here.

And if they object, just tell them it’ll only be for fifteen days. Fifteen days to slow the debt. Honest injun, guys. Only fifteen days. You can take that to the bank!

And if they still piss and moan or whine and cry, remind them that they can just as easily watch porn from home as they did from the office.

Oh, and we’re all in this together.

    Great observation: Do you think you could call your credit card company and say, “Hey, I’d like you to remove my spending limit so that I can add an unlimited debt to my credit card. Oh, and I won’t be paying it back.”

    I would have as much chance of the credit card company agreeing to that as Wile E. Coyote catching Roadrunner!

    It appears that they are also willing to destroy the foundation upon which this country was built – rule of law, property rights, capitalistic trade system, right to life, the control to make our own decisions (except when it comes to baby murder). The Republicans don’t seem to be much better (I’d almost bet the Mittens Romney will be one of the first to cave on raising the debt ceiling).

    The key to democrat success is simple: take money from people who won’t vote for you to buy votes from people who will. What do they care? It’s not like they intend to ever pay it back. Leave that to someone else after they’re gone.

    70 years ago I was a conservative “D” (Was still such when college YD president years later.). My hero , a conservative, union president, Dem said 3 years earlier ( for the non racists that would be 1948). “The government can never solve our problem. … THE GOVERNMENT IS OUR PROBLEM!”!

    i agree. Which is why after he became a “R” I voted for him 9 times!

    Shutting it down forever would help us CHUMPS and DEPLORABLES.. Would hurt “our betters”!

    Since “our bettors” have run the show for 32 years it will not be shut down.

    Congress is so inept and horribly “managed” that every time they have shut down it has cost the taxpayers millions of dollars. How does an organization being shut down cost us money.

    I really enjoy your writing and read the site daily.

    Shut them down for 15 days to flatten the tyranny and extend the shut down for years.

    Just level the whole damn place (preferably when everyone is there). Anything taller than 12 inches is too tall. Till it all under and let nature take its course. Fuck ’em.

    I am convinced that we need a taxpayers strike. No more withholding, no more estimated payments. Make them wait until April 15 to receive it and prove to us that they’ve earned it. Sounds crazy, I know. But the alternative is we become Venezuela.

    raise the debt ceiling? what for, i thought this 5 trillion dollar bill won’t cost us anything.

  • October 3, 2021 at 9:59 am

    I’m confused – why is it called a “ceiling” if they just keep raising it? Imagine how much financial trouble a person could get into if he could simply raise his credit limit each month so he could his minimum payment back on the card?
