Knock, Knock, "Is Anyone Home?"
US government "shut down"? Of course, only for the people because all the most heinous parts of it is kept working... the IRS (collecting money but not giving refunds, though, of course), CIA, FBI (busting the free-market Silk Road), NSA, DEA, ATF (except for processing gun permits, of course) and countless others.
That can be seen in the Daily Treasury Statement for Oct. 2, just two days into the shutdown where the Treasury spent a total of $63.262 billion in the first two days of fiscal 2014. At the same time, it took in $25.681 billion in tax revenue. The Treasury also sold $1.648 billion in new Treasury securities--which is government debt.
Not much seems to have been shut down at all, unfortunately, and the few actually noticable things that have shut down so far are national parks, the Air Force-Navy football game and they have made it so overseas troops can't watch NFL or MLB playoff games! It is so blatantly obvious that it isn't a real "shutdown" at all and only meant to try to cut off the few things that the federal government does provide that people enjoy!
This, from the Washington Times:
The Park Service appears to be closing streets on mere whim and caprice. The rangers even closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, where the plantation home of George Washington is a favorite tourist destination. That was after they barred the new World War II Memorial on the Mall to veterans of World War II. But the government does not own Mount Vernon; it is privately owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association. The ladies bought it years ago to preserve it as a national memorial. The feds closed access to the parking lots this week, even though the lots are jointly owned with the Mount Vernon ladies. The rangers are from the government, and they’re only here to help.
“It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.” Yes, you read that right. The federal governnment is even shutting down parks they don't own and explicitly telling park rangers to guard it and to "make life as difficult for people" as they can! I thought those park rangers were all "shut down"? Not so fast... the national parks are shut down but now the park rangers and police are there to make sure you can't get in!
In the meantime, a woman who was taking incredibly dangerous drugs of the type that every mass-shooter has taken in the US in the last few decades, physchotropic pharmaceuticals, all approved by the FDA, by all accounts was having a mental episode at the capitol. Her family later said that she thought "Obama was watching and listening to everything she was doing"... and she was right. The NSA is watching and listening to everything anyone in the US does. And it also gives the populace another chance to "see" into the world of CIA PcsyOps. Her sisters are now reporting the woman heard "microwave voices."
According to the media, she then "rammed a barrier" although no marks on the front of her car whatsoever and the first real evidence we have is of this woman with her baby in the car surrounded by dozens of militants waving guns and banging on her car. all the mean while, A DC Security drill was being conducted by DHS....yes, People, do you think it may be time to wake up to reality?
Hundreds of police did finally catch up to the unarmed, 34-year-old dental hygienist who was fleeing from them with her baby. Dozens of bullets tore through her black two-door Infiniti as she traveled and her body was so badly torn apart by the gunfire that in the end the gunmen were not even sure who it was they had killed.
For the daylight execution of a woman who was unarmed, with her baby and had not harmed anyone, Congress gave a standing ovation. You can't make this stuff up! Hello?
This whole shutdown thing being about Obamacare, as per the usual communist-style, centrally planned modus operandi hardly any of the Obamcare government websites were even functioning on October 1st when they were supposed to be launched. It's amazing isn't it when a semi-free-market entity like Facebook can handle billions of requests per hour while the government sites couldn't handle an influx of a few million in a day. But completely par for the course. After a few days some people were finally able to get in... and what they saw shocked them.
“I am so disappointed,” wrote one woman. “These prices are outrageous and there are huge deductibles. No one can afford this!” The comment received 169 “likes.”
“There is NO WAY I can afford it,” said one commenter after using the Kaiser Subsidy Calculator. “Heck right now I couldn’t afford an extra 10$ a month…and oh apparently I make to much at 8.55/hour to get subsidies.”
A single mother of two said she is in school and working full-time while living “75% below the poverty level.” She said she was shocked to learn she did not qualify for a healthcare subsidy. “Are you F’ing kidding me????” she wrote on the government’s Obamacare Facebook page. “Where the HELL am I supposed to get $3,000 more a year to pay for this ‘bronze’ health insurance plan!?!??? And I DO NOT EVEN WANT INSURANCE to begin with!! This is frightening,” she wrote.
These people have even more coming to them. If they don't pay they have to pay anyway... in the form of "penalties". In sports you actually have to do something to get a penalty... but as with all government concoctions it works the other way. If you don't do something, you get penalized.
So now if you don't want, or can't pay extra for your fascist, worse medical plan, you will be sent a bill in the mail. It's just another tax. And, like all government acts, it is the opposite of what it says it is. It is the Un-Affordable Health Care Act. And if you can afford it or get subsidies to receive it, you will be the subject of home "visits" by the government. It's right there in the bill. Health and Human Services will be conducting "visits" especially to those who meet this criteria:
a) Eligible families who reside in communities in need of such services, as identified in the statewide needs assessment required under subsection (b)(1)(A).
b) Low-income eligible families
c) Eligible families who are pregnant women who have not attained age 21.
d) Eligible families that have a history of child abuse or neglect or have had interactions with child welfare services.
e) Eligible families that have a history of substance abuse or need substance abuse treatment.
f) Eligible families that have users of tobacco products in the home.
g) Eligible families that are or have children with low student achievement.
h) Eligible families with children with developmental delays or disabilities.
i) Eligible families who, or that include individuals who, are serving or formerly served in the Armed Forces, including such families that have members of the Armed Forces who have had multiple deployments outside of the United States.
And if you don't pay their "penalties" for not wanting their "services" and don't pay likely because you can't, they will take away your driving permission (license), put a lien on your home and take it straight out of your bank account if you have any cash. You've got to hand it to them... they've instituted something worse than Nazi Germany all under the guise of "helping you". They don't even try to hide the fact that this is screwing the public in the US. The actual, real phone number to sign-up for Obamacare is 1-800-318-2596. Normally for a national number like this they use a number like 1-800-500-0000... or 1-800-MED-ICAL for people to easily remember or dial For those of you who still have a normal phone, 1-800-318-2596 is 1-800-FUCKYO (with the number one taken out). What are the odds of that? I would be LOL if it wasn't so frigg'in sickening that the people who claim to have some kind of intellect are following and swooning all over their "Master".....Slaves drinking Koolaid, I tell you. But who am I, right? Who am I? I'm a Wife w/a disabled husband, 4 grown Sons and a grandmother, daughter, sister, Aunt, and YOUR neighbor....Knock, knock, "Hello, Is anyone home?"
