~ Welcome to Government Disfunction on a Roll - 2013/2014
aka...
Seriously folks,
is this actually happening for real?



Let's dig right in!
���������


� Happy New Year 2013 from the Tea Party -
(...but screw you, and no help for you, if you met Sandy up close and personal!) �

I was watching the Fiscal Cliff Diving Political Reality Drama
going on live
in the US House of Non-Representatives
last night, on C-Span...

And right after the vote...
this blew up... like a STORM on top of a STORM...



Shame on them!

Unreal !!! Even "Faux News" was in dis-belief
about what just happened
from Boehner's limp-wimpy tantrum of
I'll just take my ball and go home revenge move against those Nor'Eastern States that didn't swallow Romney's trumped up crap at the polls... Could it be??? Really???

Could it also be that...
Boehner and his selfish, back-stabbing tea party needs to go!?!!!

Thoughts???

Because the 'Non-Leadership' killing America like this...
is exactly what makes
"Government Disfunction on a Roll - 2013"
pretty easy to write about!
~Geno

Geno I'm really disgusted too! I've been following it as well. If they were mostly red states maybe the attitude would be different. I don't know. People are living out of their cars. That's all I know. My usual question is how is criminal disregard allowd?

Politics!
Yes... it's just gotten insane!

I mean, look at this... to someone from the same side
someone who was the keynote speaker
at their own Republican Convention,,,
talk about back stabbing party members...
let alone the people that all of this really impacts...
There is real suffering going on right now,
in the raw cold of a Jersey Winter,
and Boehner won't answer his phone... even from Christie???

Who is "The Speaker of The House" actually working for???

Or should we ask, and 'follow the money' as to
which billionaire is pulling his strings?

Yes the meeting with the "Speaker"... "was refused"... Really???





I smell a stinky fish in Boehner's Government Disfunction on a Roll - 2013 ~
or perhaps...
there is some other problem... substance abuse or over usage
or a guilty as charged problem,
or being held hostage for agreeing to bribes...
or guilt over doing something illegal, or something???



Crying is perfectly fine... perfectly fine...
but... WHO is John Boehner actually crying for?
Himself... for what he has really done about
...."helping children"...? Right. No way!



Woah... What is really going on here?

This might get very interesting, because the shell is cracking.

Sad...
he needs help...


Something smells very fishy,
behind the props & scenes & puppet strings within the
Government Disfunction on a Roll - 2013

Is this the core of the problem?

A problem that has now gotten dangerously out of control?
or...
Is it nothing really at all to worry about?
or...
Is this a symptom of the tip of an iceberg?


I did a simple Google News search...

Woah... someone does not like Mr. Boehner...

If the guy is an alcoholic, I feel bad for him and whomever cares about him. I hope he will find whatever within himself to get away from it. Addicts have issues that the usual shrink methods rarely seem to help except to replace one behavior for another, which might be even worse.

As far as representing our country, and doing the work that we pay for... he should be replaced for being callus and not doing what we hired him to do. If he's a drunk and doesn't give a damn, that might be the reason... but the results are what should drive the call to action... not the reason why. If we have to prove he's unfit, because of anything other than the obvious... (doesn't care about people sleeping in their cars in the dead of winter)... then the method of firing this guy is just as nuts as the guy himself.

Well! Just like that... it's just another day...




(www.guardian.co.uk Full Story (Click Here)

"...But others who had earlier threatened to vote against him,
such as the New York congressman Pete King,
have come round, in King's case because
Boehner relented and scheduled a vote on Sandy aid for Friday."

"..."John will be re-elected Speaker. John is a voice of reason in our conference,
despite some of the things I said yesterday," said King on NBC on Thursday morning."

"The failure of Bohener to schedule a vote on Sandy aid this week
drew a furious response from the Republican governor of New Jersey,
Chris Christie.
In a 40-minute news conference on Wednesday, Christie railed against
the "toxic internal politics" of the House majority."

"...After Christie's comments, Boehner and House majority leader Eric Cantor
hurriedly announced there would be two votes on Sandy aid: ... ..."

When Republicans Get Angry: Christie vs. Boehner

By Margaret Carlson Jan 3, 2013 12:00 PM ET
www.bloomberg.com/news

"...Reid had accused Boehner of
"running a dictatorship in the House and caring more about holding onto his gavel than striking a deal"
to avert the so-called fiscal cliff. When Boehner ran into Reid steps from the Oval Office, he said
"Go f--- yourself."
Boehner later bragged about the incident to fellow Republicans."

"... Boehner is really mad at himself for being led by the nose
by his most conservative members,
who operate under the delusion they represent the entire country..."

Well... But...
Sorry House Republican, there is NO EXCUSE for your NO Vote on this matter...

How many people died in SuperStorm Sandy?
... and these "representatives" voted NO...
No excuse for these NO votes!

Feel free to leave them a thought or two...

I posted the following comment:

"How many people's family members died in SuperStorm Sandy?
... and 67 of these "representatives" voted NO?
... There is No excuse for these NO votes!
None!
Remember, someday your families might also reap what you sow.
Think about it.
You have a great responsibility... do the right thing for everybody,
or please step down."

State of the Union Address Tonite...

Not too optimistic about anything at this nano-second.
Let's see if any of that can be changed by what the President has to say.
Fingers crossed, but hey,
this is still one disfunctional government,
so how much good for all of us
should I even hope for?

and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient...

Hmmm... what's 9x40?

$360.00 ... now take out taxes to pay for government stuff, including salaries and benefits for politicians.

...of whatever's left, that's what you have to survive on for a week, if you are one of the lucky ones to have a job that actually gives you 40 hours of work per week to feed your family, get health insurance, have some sort of life in 2013, etc....

Well...

"Obama promotes economic plan;
Boehner says no to $9 minimum wage"

LATIMES.com

Say whaaaat?... Boehner says no to $9 minimum wage!???
I wish it was because he feels that $9.00 / hr
is waaay too low to even think about
anyone living on for a week in 2013.

BOEHNER... Please remind us again?
HOW MUCH ARE THEY PAYING YOU, PER HOUR, PER WEEK?
Please respond. We'll wait.

Watch this video...
Then ponder...



... the fact that this could not ever happen
without the help of a government
that looks the other way when
questions get asked about how this can ever even happen.

How long into the future will it be until we are looking at a chart like this
showing access, posession and ecslusive ownership rights to and of...
food to eat, water to drink, air to breathe...???

UNREAL!!!

Any questions on why the Government SHUTDOWN was allowed to happen???

Subverting the Government?  Treason?  Sedicious Conspiracy?  

Within the US House of Representatives, WHO should now step down in disgrace?

And if we follow the Money... where will it lead?

The GOP's little rule change they hoped you wouldn't notice!

Well Well... With respect to the 
above post and questions...
Look what is blowing up here...

18 USC § 2384 – Seditious conspiracy, it plainly says; “If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspires to oppose by force the authority of, or prevent,hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.” 

"For the Americans affected by the government shut down, and those who live in Republican states that rejected free Medicaid expansion written in the Affordable Care Act, it is highly likely they would support fining and imprisoning the Koch brothers for twenty years."


Full Story HERE:


"...The DOJ will have an easy time prosecuting and convicting the Kochs and their conspirators because 
there are money trails 
leading directly to PACs whose primary purpose was inciting opposition to the established law. 
There are also videos, angry screeds, and floor speeches from Republicans in the House and Senate demanding the ACA be defunded and delayed that would give any prosecutor an easy task of proving seditious conspiracy."

"Americans have put up with criminal sedition from 

the Kochs and Republicans 

for too long and they cannot be held to a different standard or above the law because they are rich and powerful. In fact, their violation of the U.S. Code may well be the easiest, and only, means of stopping their continued assault on America’s representative democracy."

"Obviously the Koch brothers were rattled by charges they were behind the government shutdown through their funding efforts to hold the government hostage in exchange for eliminating the ACA or they would not have written a letter lying about their involvement. But they, their think tanks, PACs, and cohort in Congress and the states cannot deny they are guilty of seditious conspiracy to “oppose the authority of, or prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States” and no American should be satisfied until they are fined or imprisoned for twenty years. If there is any justice left in this corrupt nation, they will get both...."


Wow!
