It is with great sadness I report to you today, our beloved federal government is shut down.

The shock and terror filled my soul early this morning when I heard the news. No one in Washington, D.C., who works for ol' Sam could make it through one and a half inches of snow to slay the beast which is the government's job.

Who will will be there to cut checks for those who say they still need help after a year with no job? Who will be there to go after the Tea Party and other so-called "enemies of the president?" Who'll be there to fix the "Obamacare" computers when they won't work? Ok, scratch that.

Then, after pondering these great thoughts, I became even more upset. It dawned on me several times a year there is no Federal Government.

How have we survived this long? How about Christmas Day? There is no government. Also, what about Thanksgiving? What's there to be thankful about? "Big Daddy" is out of town.

Then, you have Good Friday. Well, that has to be thrown out because it comes from Christianity and something our Federal Government will have nothing of, although it's on our money and the monuments  are all over the city.

Then you come to President's Day. Why be off? We have to celebrate the new law that the president announced this week that states, "I''m president and I'll do what I want." He was supposedly kidding when he said it

Geez, I hope not. That will ruin the party. If our Federal Government takes days off who will care for us, nurture us, feed us and, most importantly, think for us?

Does this sound stupid? It was stupid, maybe about 20 years ago.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

Deaf and dumb Paul Smith said "the police and fire departments are LOCAL, not Washington D.C."
Yes, they are local but use DC tax $ too.
So deaf and dumb, your local government does not tax your money away? It is not just the Feds that tax moran. Even the state of Texas and Tyler have received Fed Tax dollars by grants to balance their budgets. All Gov'ts, local, state and DC operate on tax dollars that they taxed away from the people moran.

"1/4 to 2/3 of their funds come from Washington D.C. by way of grants each year". Grants? Don... where does this 'grant' money" come from? Heaven? Faeries?

No don, the money comes from TAX PAYERS and those tax payers are at the local level. That grant money used to be in the places where the police and fire departments are but the feds TAX IT AWAY, instead of leaving it for the locals to use. They are only giving you the money you used to have and apparently they have excess to give away.

Sheila,

Now what do the Jewish people have to do with this?

If you think Jews control the world you are sadly mistaken.

Government don't clear the lines idiot. You hire a PRIVATE company to clear it.

It's just the government that makes the you-know-what.

And idiot.. the police and fire departments are LOCAL, not Washington D.C.

It's the IRS, ATF, FBI, DOJ, NSA, CIA, DIA, and all the other alphabet feds that are giving us grief.

Hope for change in 2014. Let's change congress and give it a real direction and not this socialist blue state failed model.

In an attempt to sensationalize and support the Climate Tax agenda,(formerly global warming) ABC jews produced their television physicist to explain the melting polar icecap was releasing heat into the atmosphere bending the Jetstream south. The problem with this is, when ice melts it absorbs heat. CBS jews reported that lake Superior hasn't been so completely frozen since 1979. Sadly, when media and government combine the American citizen gets hot air and taxes, no matter how cold the winter.

Yankee, that is the silliest post I've ever read. The only time gov. pays to fix a waterline is when you live in prison. Hey I have an idea, let's end affirmative action laws and let gov. hire inspectors that aren't lazy. The problem you have is that you believe yourself not to be ignorant.

He also supposedly kidded when he said he would use the IRS to audit his enemies.

And we see how that turned out.

I guess he loves you deaf because he did not sick the IRS on you or you would locked up with all of those taxes that you owe.
