Teh Squeaky Wheel
Smothered and Scattered O grabbin’!
“Smothered and scattered” sounds like an excellent plan for addressing the individuals who currently make up our gummint.
Happy Day One of the Great Obamacare Fail, GN!
Which neatly coincides with Opening Day of the CasaK “Fuck You, That’s Why!” Festival of Civil Disobedience. (Details to follow.)
He must have read Obamacare.
That’s more than most of our Congressional Crapweasels could be arsed to do.
Good morning Fatwa and Rabbit!
The Arbuckles are revolting!
FUTW would make a good tee shirt as well.
Lost in all the hand-wringing and nuanced debate over Obamacare and the individual mandate is that nagging little fact that govt can now force a citizen to buy a consumer product. That’s what is so frightening and fucked up about this whole thing. I’d like to see some polling questions about that fundamental change in our relationship.
Windy this morning: the Santa Anas are back for a few days.
And damned proud of it. 😉
And in the great state of Georgia, subject one to a civil fine if any of “TEH CHILDREEEEEEEN” see it in its unabbreviated form.
Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, RabBiT, Fatwa, and Sven Kvartarunde.
Day one of the Government Shutdown dawns like any other day (well, technically it’s not dawn yet, here): to my great surprise, the power is on, the internets are functioning, the paper was delivered, and the food riots have yet to begin. I think I’ll drive in to school and see if that function of government is operating.
Off to work. Like Paddy, everything seems normal out here. No flames in the sky. Yet.
ScofflawK says to tell you we have flames…and they’re headed west. 😉
May Karl Rove’s wattle come to life and smother him in his sleep.
*Looks out window*
Goll-leee! Teh roads are still there and the air’s as clear as usual.
Electricity, intertoobz and cell phones continue to work.
Still have food in the fridge.
Even the Atlanta Zoo’s Panda Cam is up and running…suck it, National Zoo!
Walmart remained open and had product on the shelves; even got a great deal on a dozen “Use or Freeze by 3:30 p.m.” Angus patties. 😉
Just went for a walk; not a single crashed aircraft to be seen anywhere in the neighborhood.
Nary a warlord with (or even without) a Jeep-mounted machine gun.
And the urchins must be quietly starving in their own yards; no dead or dying old people in the streets, either.
Let’s just pray that this govt shutdown doesnt cause a shortage of cheese doodles and Schlitz beer…not to mention peanut butter. Cuz if that happens, you know what will happen next.
I think I have a solution to end all the bickering in Congress. I listen to these speeches about how that side of the aisle won’t do this, and the other side of the aisle won’t do that, and then the paid political whores on cable spout off about how that side of the aisle are terrorists and holding the country hostage, etc.
So why not eliminate aisles?
Somehow, in spite of the Dept. of Education being shutdown, I managed to educate my students today. I’m not sure how long I can continue without a federal reach-around government support.
Hi, Sven and Paddy!

Me too -give every single one of our Congressvermin the full Three Stooges:
1) Saw across top of head
2) Claw hammer to head, followed by inserting claw in nose
3) Steam iron their asses (with an old-fashioned pants press)
4) “Pick two fingers”
5) Pair of scissors under the nose
6) Face slap
7) Twist ear
8) Profit! Oh, wait…
Preferably by rigging the side walls in both chambers with hydraulic jacks so that the room can slowly and inexorably be made smaller and smaller until they’re compressed into a gooey, fetid paste?
Yeah…I’m hatin’ on Congress more than usual today.
…I managed to educate my students today.
Doesn’t that make you a class traitor or something? 😉
Doesn’t that make you a class traitor or something?
No, today was block schedule, so I only had half of my classes for twice as long. I guess that makes me a half-class traitor.
But a classy one nonetheless.
Aisles are bad. They separate people. No aisles-One people. Please.
