Yesterday the United States Capitol went into lockdown as a woman led police on a race through the streets of the District of Columbia from near the White House to the United States Capitol.
As usual first responders stepped up to the need and acted valiantly to protect the citizens, tourists, journalists and elected officials in the area.
The valiant first responders, many of them Capitol Police, were on government furlough by the same politicians they protected.
These valiant first responders who put their lives at risk to protect were not being paid because of a government shutdown created by these same politicians.
Thanks to our first responders for protecting us all, even when those we elect to protect don’t hold up their end of the bargain!
This week’s Friday’s Heroes are the Capitol Police.
So the United States Congress decided last night at midnight that they would abdicate their responsibilities. They closed down the United States Government because they can’t act like big boys and girls and do the work Americans elected them to do. While hardworking Government workers who make 30, 40, 50k a year get sent home to do the best they can, these worthless fat-cats continue to collect their salaries, ride around with drivers and drink in the finest Georgetown restaurants and bars smoking $50 cigars all on your dime. Have you had enough yet America? I say if you vote for ANY incumbent in the next election that you are supporting this type of BS…. want a change? MAKE A CHANGE!
Am I the only one fed up….. below are just a few of the comments I have seen on my Social Media feeds today….
“you are the United States of America, get yourselves together and do your job.”
“Attention Congress: PLEASE REPORT TO THE PRINCIPAL’S OFFICE. PLEASE REPORT TO THE PRINCIPAL’S OFFICE. That is all.”
“My take on the government shut down? Let em shut down… but that means they ALL need to leave OUR White House and turn the lights off behind them. They can go home now if they aren’t going to work for us anymore… no more paychecks. Lets fill the White House with Hippies and Rednecks… they apparently can work together and all get along.”
“I too am on shutdown. Therefore, I refuse to watch or listen to the news today STUPID, STUPID, STUPID House of Reps“
“The entire Government what ever party needs to each go to their respective corners take a time out and get the Country back up and running again. America this morning is the laughing-stock of the entire world. And we wonder why so many people hate us so much. Stop acting like a bunch of pissed off little boys in DC. Enough is Enough. Entire Government is to blame.”
How many more times are we going to allow these inept elected officials to hold our country captive and don’t get me wrong… I BLAME THEM ALL….. every single one of them! It is time we stopped allowing these people to embarrass our country and FIRE THEM!
