Shortly after the June leaks, numerous polls asked the American people if they approved or disapproved of the National Security Agency spying. The answer then was a resounding no, and new polls released in August and September clearly show Americans’ increasing concern about privacy has continued.
The Democrats staged this entire “shutdown” circus in an effort to distract attention from the sideshow freak that is Obamacare. President Barack Obama and his accomplices forced this shutdown rather than give up on an entirely unworkable con of which they personally want no part.
The Barack Obama regime is proving to be the most arrogant, narcissistic, petty, malevolent, insidious, baleful, sinister and criminal regime in U.S. history. The regime’s use of the so-called government shutdown (which isn’t really) has exposed its sophistry and mendacity for all to see.
It’s vital to look at the real meaning of Obamacare. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will create, as ordered, a complete list of approved treatments for every disease label under the sun. And everyone in the insurance plan will be forced to take what the doctor tells him to take.
The Democrats wouldn’t negotiate. Instead, they slandered their opposition as terrorists, anarchists, cannibalistic pedophiles or whatever. The Republicans wouldn’t back down from their stand against the fraudulently passed and fraud-laden Obamacare. Meanwhile, they all exempted themselves from the main bone of contention.
As part of the government shutdown, national parks and Federal buildings were closed down Tuesday. But the metal barricades that blocked access to the World War II Memorial proved of little consequence to a group of WWII veterans from Mississippi on an Honor Flight tour.
The stroke of midnight passed, and the U.S. government turned into a pumpkin. Well, we wish. In fact, the U.S. government, like some eternal zombie, continues to walk the Earth even without the souls of taxpayers upon which to feast. But here are 10 ways an actual shutdown of the U.S. government would affect you.
According to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, those who rise against imposing Obamacare on an unwilling America are “anarchists.” But an actual anarchist believes in the complete termination — generally by violent means — of all government. That sounds like a sequel to one of the “Mad Max” movies.
On Tuesday, Durham, N.C., police were looking for a man who burglarized a home and later committed an armed robbery. They found a suspect who exchanged gunfire with officers and then ran onto a college campus, right past a sign announcing the area was gun-free.
By the time you read this, the countdown will have passed T-minus four days and counting. If those stalwart stewards of the public trust — your Congress and mine — can’t figure out a way to close the gap between the Democrats and the overwhelming majority of Americans, then the government will close for business at midnight on Sept. 30.
