Chicken Little and the Government Shutdown: “A Little Nonsense”?

“A little nonsense, now and then, is relished by the wisest men.” — Willy Wonka, ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’

To hear DemoLibs and the lamestream media tell it, Chicken Little hasn’t just flown into Congress this week, he’s taken up roost for the duration. Fret not. DemoLib squawks regarding The Dreaded Government Shutdown and sky is falling shills notwithstanding, maybe this shutdown is “just what the doctor ordered” (pun intended), especially for those clamoring for a government solution to every problem.

Maybe the shutdown will show just how big government is, and how far the burgeoning leviathan under current operation has grown since its inception in that quaint geriatric document Obama and his minions are so fond of ignoring: The U.S. Constitution. It may also shine the light of truth on just how far the federal government has strayed from the limited government outlined in Article 1, Section 8 – and how much it costs in both dollars and individual liberties.

A Double Dose?

Here’s another potential plus related to the government shutdown: it might highlight government dependency and over-reach in America – and how much it costs. Again.

Oh, wait. We can’t risk a double dose of common sense and personal responsibility breaking out now, can we? That might ruin the DemoLib “We’re from the government and we’re here to help, kindly look the other way while we dig deeper into your pocket” script. After all, a government shutdown might deprive DemoLibs of the means to buy more votes. Egad!

On the Bright Side

Perhaps the federal government will remain shut down long enough that we may see liberty take wing and tyranny crash into the ash heap of “a little nonsense.”

    The Republicans plan to pass small appropriations bills for functions such as national parks and museums, etc. (They could do this by passing those of the regular 13 bills that have nothing to do with social services.) Harry Reid plans to reject them, as he rejects everything else, but if they keep doing this, it means that he and his 43 lackeys will be voting to keep all those facilities closed down even as they smear the GOP as closing them down.
    Which leads to a nice riddle. Q: What is the difference between Harry Reid and a bucket of slime? A: The bucket.

    As one astute fellow said to me today, “Just show me where the off switch is.”

    It wasn’t all that long ago (before Roosevelt and Wilson, for sure) when it was said the average American had little or no contact with the Federal government.

    That fact is, we don’t need it…at least as it is needed (or wanted) today. But over the years we’ve been hooked on it like a pimp trying to hook us on some street drug.

    When I see some DC ass-tard up on his or her podium telling us how “compassionate” they are, I see a mean and nasty drug pusher. And that’s what they are. And Americans better wake up to the fact that we don’t need them for anything but their Constitutional duties.

    Besides that, these pimps are taking us deep into debt. Would a “compassionate” person borrow from our children to hook us on today’s “compassion”? No. They are cheap pimps….well, they’re actually quite expensive pimps on second thought.
