It ALL Starts With Obama
Listening to Preezy speak is a burdensome task. He sounds like a tweeney who wants everyone to be angry at someone just, well, because…. and all the name calling he does from his Preezy Podium, so juvenile and whiny, makes me gag. Dems and the media fall in line and also do the name calling shtick. BO really is so childish, he must think we all have the inability to understand language above a fourth grade level. He handles challenges on the domestic front by name calling and denial.
For as small as the president looked abroad, he looked downright childish at home.He is following his failure to negotiate successfully on the world stage with a refusal to negotiate at all at home. His message to Republicans on both the debt ceiling and ObamaCare is the same: nyet, nyet.Call him confused about who the enemy is.The dynamic is startling. The more the world pushes Barack Obama around, the more he pushes back at home. It reminds me of a Mort Sahl joke from the Cold War: Every time the Soviets lock up an American, we retaliate by locking up an American.
It will be illegal to walk on the National Mall if the federal government shuts down, a spokesperson for the National Parks Service (NPS) said Monday.
NPS Spokeswoman Carol Johnson told TheBlaze Monday the entire National Mall would legally close to the public during a shutdown, but admitted it would be difficult, if not impossible, to enforce.
“The mall theoretically is legally closed,” Johnson said. “Now, obviously people walking across it … there is nothing much we can do, but it is legally closed.”
So, they will still “guard” the mall, but you can’t walk there? See how really stupid these people are in their fervor to keep BO happy……he wants the shutdown and so does Reid and Pelosi. The last offer R-words made was to fund Obamacare but, only the original without all the exemptions and waivers. Reid refused, Preezy refused.
The latest GOP plan would fund the government through mid-December, delay the individual mandate under ObamaCare, and force top government officials to use ObamaCare. The government is set to shutdown after midnight. [snip]
“This is an issue of fairness,” said Boehner, who spoke twice on the floor. “How can we give waivers and breaks to all the big union guys out there, how do we give a break to all the big businesses out there, and yet stick our constituents with a bill that they don’t want and a bill they can’t afford?”
Boehner said he and President Obama spoke by phone tonight, and that Obama told him, “I’m not going to negotiate. I’m not going to negotiate, I’m not going to do this.”
“Well, I would say to the president, this is not about me, and it’s not about Republicans here in Congress,” Boehner said. “It’s about fairness to the American people.”
Boehner is right….Reid and BO are wrong. BO always talks about “fairness”, one of his favorite words while he’s campaigned for the last five years but, never practices what he preaches at us. 90% of the jobs created under BO are part time. He is destroying the middle class, the numbers there are bigger so, he rips them off even when they can’t afford his “dream” of redistribution. Funny how the Union leaders got all quiet after their meeting with BO. What were they offered to shut up and sit down? As for the federal employees, hiring more than necessary is a great way to lower the unemployment rate, which is exactly what BO has done. From Investors Business Daily
The White House is just a microcosm of the out-of-control growth in federal government personnel. Shameless federal worker unions already plan to sue to get paid for days they stay home during the shutdown.
One thing a government shutdown does is prove that millions of them can, and should, stay home every day.

The government shutdown that starts today results in temporary pink slips to “nonessential” government workers, begging the obvious question: Are the White House chefs essential?
The Obamas are known to eat quite well, at least in public, where they can be seen frequenting trendy spots around Washington and landing in over-priced restaurants aimed at vacationers when they’re in Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard. At home in the White House, a team of chefs plans menus for the Obamas and prepares an endless series of tasty meals.
But the government shutdown presents the terrifying prospect that the Obamas may have to defrost a package of Lean Cuisine or open a can of meat ravioli.
I couldn’t agree more. Let it stay that way for a decade or two. Obama says he “won’t give the R-words anything”, back at you BO, back at you.
In a telephone interview with the Guardian, Ferguson said that he believed that much of early noise about the film, from both sides, was motivated by an attempt to stop people from contributing to the documentary. “I wasn’t delighted, but it wasn’t an issue of worry, because I’ve faced such things before, but I wasn’t prepared for how effective it would be, that’s what really surprised me,” Ferguson said.
He blamed rejections on the desire of many potential contributors to work for, or gain access to, a potential Clinton administration. “Part of what’s going on right now is that many, many, many people want to be in her campaign, they want a job in her administration, they want access to the White House, they want some specific thing that they care about and most of the people, probably over 90%, are going to be disappointed.”
