I'm A Genius

You betcha! Did I not say, "they'll turn out the lights on some highly-visible widows-and-orphans stuff?" Here's the headline: "No Social Security checks? Is Obama bluffing?"

Surprise, surprise, surprise.

Can we get the Emperor's horse in here as a Senator? Just for comic relief?

Ahhh, theatre!

Wow, you must be psychotic, I mean psychic.

Well, if the Princips decides to start truly ruling by fiat, I think those of us out here in the hinterlands might be OK. It's our poor brethren caught in the fever swamp inside the beltway that will suffer the most. Imagine a lifetime of scrambling over the bodies of those you've deposed capped by being made obsolete when the Light Bringer decides he no longer needs a legislative or judicial branch.

Meanwhile, the Fed announces QE3 and sends gold up $100 an ounce within a week. Print enough dollars, and soon we will be able to heat our homes by burning dollar bills for fuel.

Hey, at least they are asking if Captain Bullsh*t is bluffing. I would expect this headline:

"GOP plans to stop Grandma's check over budget battle"

In totally unrelated news, the Minnesota shutdown is forcing MillerCoors products off the shelves.

Then he'll build a bridge from the White House to the Capitol so that he needn't walk among the masses, and have his face chiseled into the Authority of law statue outside the SCOTUS building.

@Loki,
Shutdown's over.

Ain't it amazing how fast things got resolved once the absence of government began interfering with important stuff!

He has threatend old people, disabled people including disabled veterans (me) and the military. Not a good move, threaten the people that have the least to lose.

Robert, and the most likely to vote. I 'spect a lot of retired, disabled and .mil people have already made notes on their calendars for the next couple of Novembers.

Robert Fowler said...

Good point. Most of the older and disabled people I know vote every election. He may have just shot himself in the foot. I bet his treats will cure a lot of voter apathy.
