THE FLYING MONKEYS
Posted January 7, 2013on:
Barely seconds before they lifted their hands from the bible, some of these flying monkeys vowed to do just that with threats of “government shutdown” if they do not get their way.
Some even managed to show “they mean business” by voting against aid to the devastated victims of Hurricane Sandy thus guaranteeing more “fun and games” for the next 2 years where “doing nothing” promises an encore of what the 112th failed to accomplish. Hurray for us!
What becomes even more evident with the flying monkeys is that most of them are clueless when it comes to public service. Most seem unfamiliar with the US Constitution. Few seem to have a grasp on past history. Many view government as an unnecessary tool and the majority have little acquaintance with the machinations of finding common ground as they come prepared to stand in the way of compromise.
Since most of the flying monkeys are GOP affiliated, the leaders of their party seem stymied in their attempts to find mutual cohesion in dealing with this group. They refuse to back down from their pedestals to play nice with the leadership in finding solutions to the issues at hand. Shutting down the government seems to be what these morons declare is the only way to “send the message” and if that means a national paralysis then so be it. It’s “my way or the highway” with this crowd.
The GOP, with its intended gerrymandering to capture majority rule, failed to consider that sometimes you get what you ask for. They probably never counted on some of the dumbest people on the planet to make it through rigged primaries tilted in their favor with the likes of Sharron Angle, Christine O’Donnell, Richard Murdouch and Todd Akin to name just a few of these beauties. They lost.
However, some of the newest members of congress did win and this is where it gets “dicey” for the likes of John Boehner in trying to herd them into the fold. He may find it easier teaching a squirrel to ride a bike before he will ever manage to break through the barrier of this contingent whose focus is in stark contrast to seeking commonsense solutions to the issues at hand.
Good luck with that!
Threats of shutting down the government are very unpopular with the voters. Newt Gingrich can attest to this failure of leadership. It solves nothing and leaves the populace with a nasty taste in their mouths.
In the end someone must pay for this unnecessary event and it usually is the party that is behind the proposal. The flying monkeys may soon learn this lesson if this is what they offer as a means to an end.
Let’s face it: our government is just not working on our behalf. And the flying monkeys are the proof. As long as there are “dimwits” elected to serve who are unable to understand that a united government is the basis for change and progress in a multi cultural society then we are doomed to repeat this dysfunction for generations to come.
We are not in Kansas anymore!
