Once again, Obama proves he is a real dick



Memorials barricaded as National Mall shuts down

The National Park Service is closing monuments and memorials and ending trash collection on the National Mall due to the government shutdown.

Spokeswoman Carol Johnson said Tuesday that workers are barricading the monuments and shutting down fountains at the World War II Memorial. In total, fountains at 45 sites are being shut off.

About 330 park rangers and other staff are being furloughed due to the government shutdown. But Johnson says U.S. Park Police will remain on duty to guard the monuments and memorials.

Trash collection ends Tuesday on the National Mall at parks maintained by the National Park Service in downtown Washington.

Since they already shut down White House tours for the sequester, Obama had to come up with some new way of screwing people. These monuments are normally open to the people – some of them have been there a long, long time. They are guarded by the Capitol Police – who are still working! So they paid the Capitol Police to put up barricades around them to keep tourists out!

But wait! There’s more!

How much you want to bet that the White House dogwalker/pooperscooper is an “essential employee?” And you know that Barry and Michelle won’t miss any golf games or fancy soirees with their buds.

Fuck, fuck, fuckity-fuck!

    God bless the vets. They should storm the Capitol next.

    And just when you thought Obama couldn’t be a bigger dick, the DoD just sent out a press release that *all* sporting events at the various military Academies (Army, Navy etc) are cancelled due to the shutdown. So no football games, no soccer matches, etc. This despite the fact that a CR funding the DoD has already been approved. How much do you want to bet the MSM neglects to mention the fact that DoD isn’t a part of the “shutdown” when they reported on the fuck up to the college football calender?

    • Constance says:

      So now Republicans need to do exactly what Gingrich suggested which is wait for the Democrat/media shutdown of the day outrage and immediately respond to the needs of The People by passing a portion of the budget that funds only the outrage of the day. Dare the Senate and Obama to not sign these bills. Eventually every outrage will be funded but Obama care.

      • Monster from the Id says:

        IIRC, Gingrich is the Dear Leader who led the Reptilians into the shutdown of 1995, which backfired on them in the next election year.

        The Reptilians need political advice from Newt Gingrich like they need speech lessons from Elmer Fudd. πŸ˜›

        • angienc says:

          I don’t like Newt at all but you are wrong that the 1995 shutdown “backfired” on the GOP the next election — the GOP made gains in the Senate that next election. Now Bill Clinton came out of it better than the GOP thought he should/would but that is because of the good economy & personal charm — neither of which Obama has going for him. Nonethess, despite the MSM and the DNC (but I repeat myself) bleating otherwise, we don’t revise history around here (although Lord knows ignorance is bliss; just ask a typical Obama voter).
          Furthermore, the Dems have Senators up for re-election in slot of states that Romney carried by double digits (MO, LA, etc — can’t remember all but at least 8). Having themselves re-associated with Obamacare (especially while exempting themselves from it , which wasn’t there in 2012) isn’t going to be helpful to them. So the 2014 election outlook probably isn’t as dire for the GOP as the MSM is wishcasting now.

          • The Klown says:

            Newt’s hubris did hurt the GOP back then, but John Boehner doesn’t seem to suffer from that condition.

            In 1995 the media treated the shutdown as ineffective rather than an apocalypse.

        • Constance says:

          Newt is a better adviser than leader. The Dems/Media seem to be selectively analyzing the past to predict the future. I don’t know how you explain refusing to subject members of Congress to Obama care when the rest of us are stuck with it.

        • angienc says:

          Klown — “hurt” is relative — the biggest loser from the shutdown was Newt — the GOP as a whole turned on him & spat him out due to his hubris, petulance, etc. Newt is the GOP version of Obama (but smarter).
          Monster, however, specially referenced the hurt in terms of the “next election year” — that didn’t happen. The GOP held the House & made gains in the Senate in 1996. That isn’t “backfired in the next election year” by any measure.

        • Monster from the Id says:

          It’s entirely possible that I didn’t remember correctly.

          But on da Intertoobz, that hardly matters. If it didn’t happen that way, but enough people misremember it that way, then for all practical purposes, it did happen that way.

          “He who controls the present, controls the past; he who controls the past, controls the future.”

          In my more cynical, even nihilistic, moments, I think truth only matters in the natural sciences and their practical applications, such as engineering and medicine–for example, one is obligated to observe objective facts in building a bridge, or else the bridge won’t stand up.

          On everything else, including historical events and politics, it’s all one big continuing remake of Rashomon.

          It’s Pilate’s world: “What is truth?” πŸ™„

        • angienc says:

          @Monster: Oh, what you wrote is definitely how the MSM has rewritten history on the matter. But it isn’t possible that you didn’t remember correctly. In fact, you did not remember correctly.

          Further, I do think that you are wrong about how that relates to the 2014 election (“controls the past; controls the future)– the MSM has rewritten the 1996 election but people didn’t *actually* vote the way they say they did, so their predictions based on their revisionist history for 2014 are useless. Maybe this shutdown *will* hurt the GOP in 2014, but if so, it will be a lucky guess/coincidence on the MSM/progs’ part, not actually a prediction based on historical precedence (as they’d have everyone believe).

        • Monster from the Id says:

          It might work, however, on younger voters, who weren’t paying much attention to politics in 1995-96.

          Only time will tell, to quote Asia out of context.

      • angienc says:

        Yep — a CR funding Parks Services should be first on the agenda in the House today.
        The EPA & the IRS can stay closed forever as far as I’m concerned.

      • angienc says:

        And what do you know! It’s being reported that Ryan said after the meeting this afternoon that the House is going to vote on 3 separate CRs to fund Parks, Vets & DC at 6 p.m. tonight & they’ve got the votes to pass them.

      I’m curious — what was the final straw for your neighbor? Congress exempting themselves from Ocare or something else?

      • leslie says:

        the shutting down of the gov’t. Oddly enough, she doesn’t trust bronco OR the dems any more. (not that she trust the R’s either) but I take victory where I can get it. We were on the phone forevah last night when she “came out”.

    Oh great. Now the car won’t start. The battery is new – just bought a few months ago.
    When I turn the key nothing happens – no clicking, nothing. Everything electrical seems dead – no dash lights, won’t lock/unlock.
    Think it’s a bad starter?

    • DandyTIger says:

      If there are no lights, then it’s the battery. Either dead or just came loose.

    • Somebody says:

      VM, my hubby said that doesn’t sound like a starter problem because you have no lights etc.

      He says it could be a bad battery, jump it off, drive it around to get a little charge on it and then go to an auto parts store or where you bought the battery. They can test the battery, which should be free. If it’s a bad battery that won’t hold a charge you should get a pro-rated refund.

      It could also quite likely be your alternator, you need the alternator to keep your battery charged…….this is his thought as to the problem.

      The other possible problem would be an electrical issue, something as simple as a knicked wire in the right place could cause the problem. Electrical issues with cars are often elusive and difficult to diagnose.

      • DandyTIger says:

        Yep, care electrical systems are notoriously horrible. Even on expensive cars. I’d say either a lemon battery or the alternator is the problem. Not hard to check luckily.

        • The Klown says:

          I had a car for several years that kept having problems with the battery, alternator and voltage regulator. I’d replace one and a couple months later one of the other two would go bad. Then one time I replaced all three at the same time and never had trouble with the electrical system again.

          BTW – Jump-starting cars can fuck up either or both cars’ electrical systems, especially if it’s done wrong. So can rapid charging of the battery. Invest in a battery trickle-charger and a portable jump-starter.

          Everybody who owns a car should own certain tools – a battery charger and a hydraulic floor jack are both on the list.

          • The Klown says:

            A Chilton’s repair manual for your breed of car is a good idea too, even if you don’t know much about car repair. They are very informative and can help if you have to deal with a sleazy mechanic.

            The guy at the local Toyota shop tried to convince my mom she should have her brake fluid drained and refilled. It wasn’t leaking and the system worked fine. Brake fluid is not like oil – it doesn’t normally need to be replaced.

    • angienc says:

      If it’s the alternator, that runs between $275 to $500 to replace (depending on the car).
      Of course, if you have someone who can replace it for you to save on labor costs, the alternator itself is only $70 to $100.

    • elliesmom says:

      I had battery problems with my VW a few years ago. It kept losing it’s charge if I didn’t drive it every day. We replaced the battery and had the electrical system checked several times. It turned out the light wasn’t going off when I shut the trunk.

    • foxyladi14 says:

      Battery. πŸ™‚

    • 1539days says:

      In my experience, a bad battery can kill the alternator and a bad alternator can kill the battery. I once had an alternator fail on me a few months after I got a new battery. Goodyear tried to get away with not replacing the battery under warranty, but they had to when I couldn’t start it in their parking lot

    • votermom says:

      Hubby fixed it for now by charging the battery with a car charger plugged into the wall socket. After a couple hours finally got enough to juice to jump start.
      Something is draining the battery overnight I guess.
      I’ll look into getting the battery tested.
      Thanks y’all.

    Right. The shut down is Obama’s fault. If only he would shut up and do as he is told like a good boy should, this problem would not exist.


    I like the fact that Obama keeps getting to win on the issues of ACA because his opponents won’t give up.

    Naming it Obamacare will eventually result in a bad outcome for the GOP if it is rela
    ly popular

    • angienc says:

      Damn you are such a racist, treating Obama differently from all other US Presidents who had government shutdowns on their watch (17 times) just because of the color of his skin.

      Your wishcasting that Obamacare will become “really popular” demonstrates the kind of delusion needed for one who is as racist as you are to sleep at night.

    • Sandress says:

      Don’t hold your breath on it being really popular. It’s going to hit people hard in the pocketbook, and even Socialists like me get cranky about that, especially when we know that literally every other industrialized nation in the world has a functional health care system that Isn’t designed predominantly to make insurance companies rich. Obamacare is a sloppy blowjob from the Dems to the corporate fatcats that dresses up like altruism towards the low-income but is actually going to end up costing them more. Even the brainwashed masses will catch onto that eventually.

      Yes the shutdown is Obama’s fault. What did he have against making Congress take Obama care like the rest of us? If it’s so great Congress should rush to get theirs. The government is shutdown because Obama wouldn’t treat Congress like regular citizens.

          I mean it, Dandy. Civil liberties is my heart and soul. Do I think the stupid assed Todd Akins of the world are massive pricks? Yep. But I’ve never seen a one of them, not even the batshit ones, propose military coups over LEGAL (even if aggressive/stubborn) legislative blocking or basically locking people away who disagree with them. They have their fetish that they drone on about, but they have no plans to destroy the constitutional foundations of my country in a wholesale way, across the board.

          The thing is, the right does have a few actual radicals – the dumb morons cackling over secession and 2nd civil war delusions. Or a tiny handful of genuine kinda-theocrats (as distinct from those who are just sternly prolife). Guess what? They are treated as the actual fringe lunatics they are by the vast majority of the right. They aren’t given a platform in, say, National Review or Weekly Standard.

          I take big issue with the right on the handful of liberties they want to interfere in. BIG issue. But the Left? The left has a ravening hunger to interfere in everything, with everyone, endlessly, with no respite, ever. They see society, and as a result see individuals, as a work in progress that they get to mold and tinker with for some glorious end that, of course, never ever comes. Every one of them would scrap the entire constitution in a heartbeat if it was expedient for the inexorable march of Holy Progress.

          And frankly, it does us no good if everyone can get gay-married and have an abortion in the Gulag. Um…. yay?

  22. As if Global Warming publicists (masquerading as actual scientists) haven’t done enough to make ‘scientists’ appear foolishly incompetent to real adults, lawyers for the FDA have now successfully prosecuted and incarcerated a scientist for telling the truth when he published and commented on confirmed statistical results of a structured test run for his employer. Get that? He told the truth, but was guilty of evil. Wm. M. Briggs, the Statistician to the Stars, has the details.
