Good grief. There has to be something better than what we have. Kind of looks like we re-elected a Congress of “can kickers”. Year in and year out we get the same result from our congress critters. Has none of them have the intestinal fortitude to force the leadership in both the House and Senate to do their freaking job? Oh, I forgot for a moment that Congress elects their own leaders. Can kickers electing other can kickers to be the leaders of the can kickers as a whole.
You tell me and expect the rest of this Republic to believe you did not know that today was coming? It and all of the drama that goes along with a “possible government shutdown”. You knew this day was coming from the day you were elected. Must you always wait until the last freaking minute? Let me do the math for you. It may be a little difficult as I am the product of the Public School System, the very same Public School System you rammed down the throats of the good citizens of this Republic. You critters were sworn in January the Third. January has 31 Days(checking my knuckles just to be sure, yep 31, high spot). 31 minus 3 = 28(had to use a calculator for that). So for those 28 days you did nothing. February has 28 days(just a minute checking my knuckles again, yep low spot, wait have to check a calendar, yep 28, 2017 is an odd year no possibility of being a leap year). So for the 28 days of February you did nothing. Hold on while I again consult my calculator. 28 plus 28 = 56, so for a total of 56 days you did nothing. Then came March, March has 31 days(consulting my knuckles again, yep high spot 31). Damn more math, just a minute getting my calculator 28+28+31=87, so for a total 87 days you did nothing. Now it is the 28th day of April(won’t need to consult my knuckles this time, but I will still need my calculator). Damn even more math 28+28+31+28=115, that means that for 115 days you could not put together a funding bill for the government, much less a budget.
The best you could do was an extension, a one week extension. Do you really believe that you can do in 7 days what you could not do in 115 days? Worse that do you expect me to believe you can do in 7 days what you could not do in 115 days?
This is the truth of the matter. This Republic is controlled by 2 political parties, one which can not and will not do the right thing and the other that can not be brought to do the right thing. You care more for yourselves and your continued happiness more than you do for this Republic or it’s legal and lawful inhabitants. Let me prove that with this. You knew from the day you were elected that the government would run out of money on April, 28th 2017. You also knew this day was coming before you went on vacation, you went on vacation anyway. You would not even delay or postpone your vacation, you mattered most.
I can’t wait to see how far you kick the rest down the road. The border wall. Repeal of Obamacare. And the rest. This is how I see it. When all of you congress critters are present and all the seats are filled there are 535 of you. 535 elected welfare recipients.
I was sitting on the back porch a while ago and a Skunk happened to pass by, man, that was brutal. But I can’t get mad with the Skunk, after all that is what Skunks do they Stink. Then it donned on me, I would rather be in the presence of a Skunk than any of you congress critters. At least a Skunk does exactly what a Skunk is supposed to do.
