Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

We have budget problems. Serious budget problems. Not only do our individual states have problems balancing a budget, but our entire Federal Government, lead by a contentiously oppositional Congress cannot balance a budget. If a budget plan is not agreed on by midnight tonight, the government will shut down.

We have budget problems. Serious budget problems. Not only do our individual states have problems balancing a budget, but our entire Federal Government, lead by a contentiously oppositional Congress cannot balance a budget. If a budget plan is not agreed on by midnight tonight, the government will shut down.

What are some of the impacts to a Federal Government Shut Down?

  • Federally supported parks and monuments will be closed.
  • Militairy  will not get paid on time.
  • Tax returns will not come back to the people who get refunds
  • Other multiple services, including FBI programs will be closed.

But the problematic people in Congress, the ones who are failing at their jobs, will get paid and basically have a nice little paid vacation, with very HIGH wages. OUTRAGEOUS!

We should all be up in arms about this. This is NOT ACCEPTABLE! Each and every person currently serving in Congress needs to be replaced. If they cannot do the job that we pay them to do, why are they allowed to hold that position? IF you were working for a company and your job was to balance that company’s budget, and you failed with the final ramifications that the company shut down should you get to keep your job? NO WAY! You would be fired and have all your belongings packed by security in little brown boxes. Congress should not be paid for doing a bad job, or not doing their job at all. Its ridiculous.

People holding jobs and doing nothing. That is our Congress. Totally unacceptable.

The Tea Party is one of the stumbling blocks in Congress by the way. They relish a Government Shut Down. They are hoping that this shut down will send a signal to Americans. A signal that they are a force to be reckoned with. COME ON! They are a force alright. A force that needs to be flushed!

The Tea Party would like to portray themselves as the most patriotic of the parties. (Heck they are not even a real party anyway. More like faux leather, they are a faux party)

How patriotic is shutting down the government, and not paying your soldiers for their service? Is that the Tea Baggers idea of patriotism? I think they are warped. Perhaps they have watched too many Sarah Palin speeches and her rant has warped their brain? They have lost their way!

Congress its time to do your job and actually pass a budget. Suck up some of the issues you don’t like as individuals and make sure the government continues unobstructed by personal plots. Stick the Tea Baggers in your tea cups and act like true Americans OR expect ramifications in elections.
