America Shuts Down

Democracy at work.  And ya still think it’s George Bush’s fault? Aspects of the American Federal Government have shut down tonight, because the Democrats and Republicans cannot agree on important aspects of the Obamacare plan. The Republicans think the bill is economically irresponsible and will crush jobs, small businesses and the economy.  It’s funny, because Washington DC workers and other Govt. Democrats, like some Unions, are exempted. Why?

Democrats argue that we should all pull together kumbyahmahLord, and if their President wants something, nooooo-one should oppose it.  Well Democrats and president Obama, this is how democracy works! You don’t have the numbers, people have serious concerns about what you are proposing, and you have mismanaged the politics to the point, that the Congress cannot pass a Budget to run America.  Hell-o!

Maybe the Federal goose just got so big someone mistook it for a Turkey and plucked it. Or the Federal cow’s udder got so big, it went dry (because it was full of bull).

So, there is no money.  This is how this great nation works, the People decide. And right now,  the Congress of the People cannot agree.  So Mr Commander-in-Chief-I-got-Osama-stopped-the-War-on-Terror-Closed-Guantanomo (oops still open)-and Rolled-Back-Qaeda, it’s time to step up!

Find a solution!  You are the President and lead the whole schebang. And don’t give me that whiney Momma-Jeans feeble excuse, “people disagree with me.”  Go ask George Bush and Bill Clinton who had hostile Senates and Congresses.  They built accords and compromised on dogma to make things work. Man-up and get the work done. Laying off the golf and the celebrity talk shows might give you some important skills and some spare time.

Yes, we know this is about you leaving a political legacy, and ‘solving’ the health care problem in America (like you solved war and world peace, racism and poverty).  But not at the expense of America, Mister! Time for some political hard graft and less show-ponying. Maybe drop the image infatuations for a week or two.


Here’s a summary of the problem in a short video, plus an article if you’d like to learn more:

About coNZervative

A blog about politics, life, culture, literature, music and thought from Christchurch, New Zealand [NZ] (the home of 10,000 earthquakes since 4 Sept. 2010) built because of the bullying and cajoling of Liberal opinion-makers (journalism and Hollywood) against conservative-minded people who are as entitled to opinion and a perspective as anyone; and because Conservativism has served the world well. John Stringer is a New Zealander (Christchurch) in his 50s married to an American from Taco Bell; they have 5 adult children in 3 diff. countries. John is an ex-Anglican pastor, a teacher, published author (NZ), novelist (USA) and cartoonist (Aust, NZ), and has spent the last 25 years in NZ politics with the National party (he was a parliamentary candidate in 1999). There was a stint in London working for the British Conservative party as well, where he did media minding and campaign work with several Brit cabinet ministers, including Baroness Thatcher, Baroness Blatch, Michael Howard, Tom King, among others. He has an MA (classical studies, Victoria); is a graduate of the New York Film Academy; and has various awards for writing. His passions include British bulldogs, fly fishing, and history (Ancient and WWII). Winston Churchill was mainly a “Conservative” but also a “Liberal” MP between 1900-1964. A Member of Parliament for 64 years, he contested 21 parliamentary elections (for Oldham, Manchester North West, Dundee, and Epping/Woodford). Throughout his career Churchill stood for liberty. He believed in open debate and freedom of speech, and opposed any system or ideology that tried to dictate the way one should think. Churchill felt deeply that disagreements within the democratic system should not degenerate into personal animosities. RIDER: This site is not connected to nzconservative, a Catholic site, or NZ Conservative Party, although from time-to-time I share some of the views espoused by both groups and other sites I follow, as published; I am an independent thinker and blogger.
