Shutdown-palooza Is Sickening

Economic Policy Journal- by Chris Rossini

Just about every single media outlet has been plastered with “shutdown” propaganda. It’s so thick that you can almost feel their fear, which is Americans may not really give a sh*t.

I know that in my circle, I haven’t heard even the slightest peep about it. Not even for conversation’s sake. No one has said, “Hey did you hear about….?”  


Tom DiLorenzo echoes:

No one I’ve been around gives a crap. No one is talking about it but the “media,” who are worse propagandists than any who worked for PRAVDA under Soviet communism.

800,000 government “workers” not receiving their pay? Why on Earth does the government have 800,000 workers to begin with? And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The federal government employs millions!!

Did Americans forget what Thomas Jefferson put in the Declaration of Independence?

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

If Jefferson only had the ability to know what would become of the American federal government….and the hoards that are sent out to harrass everyday Americans.

Government jobs are not productive jobs! They sap resources from those in the private economy who are desperately trying to solve urgent problems. Not to mention the never-ending regulations that these “jobs” end up throwing on everyone’s backs.

The media cries crocodile tears for the 800,000 who are furloughed, by not one single word for the rest of us, who have money literally forced out of our bank accounts to pay them. Where’s our sympathy? Guess what? We would have done something else with our money.

The federal government is being held “hostage” and “blackmailed” the media cries. Oh really? Guess what happens to a person who doesn’t “pay up” every Apr. 15th?

You know, whenever there’s a major crisis, Americans are very quick to open their wallets to donate. Whether it be Hurricane Sandy, or even a Tsunami in Japan, private charities get to work and multi-millions are routinely donated by the American public. Americans know when to be sympathetic, and when to give.

The media during this “shutdown” is just begging for people to care!

So, just for fun, I did a quick Google Search to see if anyone is taking donations to help out with this “shutdown”. I came up empty-handed. Google had nothing! No one has said anything on Facebook or Twitter either…which always occurs during a real crisis.

Finally, with 800,000 furloughed, you’d think that these “public servants” would be out there serving the public like gangbusters. Such people who are so revered by the media should not be concerned about “pay” should they?

Businessmen and entrepreneurs are constantly reviled in movies and on TV as greedy bastards. Surely a public servant wouldn’t let silly pay stop them, would they? They wouldn’t be “greedy” like that, would they? We should be seeing a mass of 800,000 people coming at us from every angle to help.

I haven’t seen anything of the sort. Have you?

Sadly, this whole “shutdown” will come to an end. It should become permanent, but it won’t. We’ll all be blessed by having those servants back in action and serving us real good and hard.

  1. What the author is missing is the fact that politicians don’t care if they are shutdown, as a majority of them get millions of dollars more from lobbyists and big corporations that the money We the people give to them is merely pennies. So it makes no difference to them. However, if you consider the aids, attendants and regulators….then yes, it would probably be bad for them, but many of them most likely already have investments and other money hidden away for such an occasion.

    So the reason why people are not flocking to donate money to keep it going is because there is no need. Why donate to save a senator’s salary of maybe $150,000 a year when he actually gets at least 1 million or so more dollars from lobbyists and big corporations as well as other benefits?

    It makes no sense. Like the sheep feeding the wolves more than they already have or need while the sheep starve. It’s so stupid of an idea to donate money that the awakened and the sheeple both even know it.

  2. “No one is talking about it but the “media,” who are worse propagandists than any who worked for PRAVDA under Soviet communism.”

    Precisely what I’ve been saying all along.

    Why is it that the American sheeple are even more gullible than their Soviet counterparts of the fifties? Many of those in Russia who believed the propaganda were generally less educated than most Americans. Those who recognized it for what it was didn’t even have the internet /alternative medias to resort to for the truth.

    Must have something to do with the education system in this country becoming an indoctrination system decades ago.
