The Shutdown and The Leftwit Meltdown
The Shutdown and The Leftwit Meltdown
Life as we know it is ending. The citizens of the United States of America are incapable of functioning without a fully funded, invasive government that dictates and guides every moment of the citizens’ lives. The shutdown began at midnight last night and Heaven only knows how we will ever survive without descending into cannibalism. Well, according to the leftwits and everyone with Trump Derangement Syndrome.
For instance The New York Times, you should pardon the expression took a cudgel to President Donald J. Trump. First Trump was smacked around in the White House by Senator Chuck Schumer and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Then, he got his backside handed to him in the budget vote. After which he got spanked by the evil right wing nut jobs. From the article:
Then Twitter came for him. Ann Coulter called him “gutless.” Conservative pundits accused him of caving on his signature campaign promise and denounced him as a squish. Members of the Freedom Caucus took to the floor of the House to plead with him not to betray the cause. Mr. Trump’s wall-worshiping base began abandoning him.
Unable to bear the scorn of Ms. Coulter and Rush Limbaugh and his cheerleaders at “Fox & Friends,” Mr. Trump promptly reversed course. On Thursday, he rejected Congress’s temporary funding deal, declaring that either he’d get his $5 billion for a wall (or as he now calls it, “steel slats”) or Americans would get a “Democrat shutdown.” It’s called branding. Never mind that it bears no relation to reality.
I am a member of “Trump’s wall-worshipping base”. Actually, I am not big on worship. For the record, I was not on the Trump train. I did vote for him. I see him as a President who is a faulty human. Just like me. I have never worshipped any President, movie star or business leader. To me, it is dangerous and stupid. It also seems to me to be giving up your own autonomy to worship any other man or woman. Except for ballet dancers, they are worthy of worship. Sorry to digress.
As for branding, the smallest companies in our Country spend money every year on branding. Branding is a company’s lifeblood.
Dear New York Times:
You know the value of branding. You are afraid this re-branding by Trump will work.
Representative Eric Swalwell can always be counted on for some ignorant snark Tweeted:
Dear Rep. Swalwell:
This is on you, bud. Border security at every border and port or entry point of the United States is paramount to the continued existence of the United States. If you didn’t fund it, the border patrol mom, new home owner and small business is on you, bud.
Grow up, Swalwell

Rachel Maddow of MSNBC had a wall of cheese:
Dear Miss Maddow:
What do you think the border patrol mom, new home owner and small business are going to eat during the government shutdown. Give me a wall of cheese any day.
To the dairy farmers and those who consume dairy products, cheese is important. I thought y’all were worried about small businesses.
Curds to you,
A cheese eating taxpayer
This was a committee meeting not the full house.
I get it everyone to the left of Senator Susan Collins thinks Trump is a subhuman, emotional nightmare. He bounces around like a pinball according to his ever changing whims. Most people on the right who consider themselves “educated” love to sneer when they even type about Trump. If Trump shot cancer curing unicorn sparkles out of his backside, you all would kvetch about what a low IQ barbarian he was.
You know what, I don’t give a big fat fig. Since I can’t say this to the leftwits faces or to the “educated” types on the right who sneer at DJT, I am typing it here. Shut down the government and secure the bloody freaking border. Your hatred of President Trump has blinded you. He is a human. Just like the President before him, and unless something really big in science or spirituality, the next President too.
Please put aside your hatred of the Trumpster for five minutes. What is right for the sovereignty of the United States? You can find anecdotal stories about the kid whose ice cream didn’t get delivered because of the government shutdown. The shutdown will cause problems for someone, somewhere. That is a fact. Border security is national security. Deal.
