Shouldn't theologians that preach against going to the store on Sunday refrain from other recreational pursuits as well on their imposed Day of Rest? If not, is their problem not so much against using the day for something other than religious observance but rather about an antipathy towards capitalism or commerce?
If the baby panda at the National Zoo is being look after despite the government shutdown, why does the pandacam need to be switched off? Can't cost any more to operate the camera focused on this animal than those that are continuing to collect reams of footage on the American people.
Shouldn't Obama be the last one outraged over government officials ignoring the laws they don't like?
Are the monuments and memorials cordoned off with barricades during the government shutdown constantly patrolled round the clock by federal operatives during budgetarily covered times?
Were barricades set up to prevent Occupy deadbeats from defecating and fornicating on public property in the same manner they were erected to prevent veterans and taxpayers from accessing the monuments to the sacrifice of these noble Americans?
Why shouldn't Obama and the members of Congress be subject to the same shoddy medical service which they want to victimize the American people?
On the cover of the October 2013 edition, the title Christianity Today is printed in a smaller font that the initials “CT”. If you are that ashamed of the word “Christianity”, perhaps its time to cease publication and closeup shop.
On the 10/1/13 episode of Crossfire, Senator Debbie Stabenow claimed that on the first day of Obamacare availability five times as many attempted to access the program's website than any day on the Medicare website. That's because Medicare is targeted towards the elderly adverse to spilling their guts online whereas Obamacare appeals to youthful deadbeats so hooked on the web that they have to post a status update every time they take a bowel movement.
It is claimed that the Constitution forces elected officials to be paid their salaries during the government shutdown. So apparently there are provisions of the federal charter that the President and Congress are principled enough not to violate. Why can't an amendment be set into motion to correct this oversight?
You can't get more lazy beatnik than that: a service that delivers to the door locally grown organic food. I guess these leftists are to stoned on dope to go out and get it themselves now.
Democrats refused to accept a Republican compromise that would have funded the DC government. Now isn't this the part where the drum gets beat how much the Democrats hate Black folks and WOMMMMENNN?
The Washington Post reports that during the government shutdown, Comrade Obama has scaled back on his servants to 15 from the usual compliment of 90. Behold the sacrifices made by the vanguard of the proletariat in the glorious name of the Revolution.
If federal operatives are cordoning off access to assorted monuments that aren't normally manned to any considerable extent, what is to stop Obama from closing down the entire federal interstate highway system if he gets his backside any higher up his shoulders?
Senator Harry Reid remarked that Tea Party radicals have done the unthinkable by shutting down the government. Hasn't Harry Reid done the unthinkable by pitching a fit by refusing to compromise on disputed matters that would keep the government functioning?
In coverage of a ship of African migrants damaged off the coast of Italy, it was pointed out that one of the fatalities was pregnant. But if the unborn inside an expectant mother is just at best, part of her body and at worst a disease, why weren't we informed of the passengers lost that also suffered from spastic colon or spinal stenosis?
So apparently being an anarchist is a good thing when beatnik filth is defecating on police cars and desecrating church buildings but being an anarchist is a bad thing when using the legislative process to slow down questionable government programs vast numbers of the American people oppose.
Under Obamacare, young adults can remain on their parents' health insurance until they are 26 years old. However, that is only if their parents are granted the privilege of being extended the privilege of having insurance under the affordable care act.
Under Obamacare, if most forms of insurance cover 100% for breast exams for women, why is only between 70-80% covered for prostate tests? Is a man that dies from prostate cancer less dead than a woman that dies from breast cancer? And what of the small number of men that develop breast cancer? Will their costs to combat this disease be covered to the same percentage or are their penises too large?
During the government shutdown, it was reported that the technicians of the National Hurricane will continue to monitor atmospheric conditions. However, the agency's public affairs specialists were categorized as non-essential and were not responding to inquiries. Obama is probably in the White House conducting ritualistic libations to whatever demonic entity he is in league with hoping to conjure a storm to wipe out the United States while forbidding meteorologists in the federal employ from warning the American people.
In an economic shutdown, Obama warns, Social Security checks won't be sent out on time. It will likely have very little impact on the regular Wednesday night parties at the White House and the weekly presidential round of golf.
If the Obama regime is asserting control over monuments and memorials that the federal government barely gave second thought over before when times were relatively good, just think what these would be totalitarians will attempt to seize when things really do start to fall apart. Today, it's construction cones blocking access. Just wait until the entire interstate highway system is shutdown or houses are seized to pay off the national debt or you receive the equivalent of a jury duty notice informing you of compulsory labor in a Chinese slave factory.
