While our president still enjoys his essential employees and locations: the White House chefs, Camp David, and a military golf course, there doesn't seem to be any question that in mercenary pursuit of a political win, this White House is determined to unreasonably punish as many everyday people as possible. And this includes children sick with cancer. That might sound like hyperbole, but it is not. < snip > Below is a list of illogical, unnecessary, and shockingly spiteful moves our government is making in the name of essential and non-essential. CONTINUE . . . ___________________________________________________________________________________________________ Obamacare shutdown theater: President holds entire nation for ransom with contrived closings The government "shutdown" is a hoax. It is pure theater designed to make life as miserable as possible for Americans while the government keeps collecting taxes, racking up debt expenditures, running foreign wars and doing all the unconstitutional things government does these days. It is now becoming obvious to nearly all Americans that the Obama administration is running a pernicious, punitive, selective "shutdown" that's designed to hold the American people hostage until Obama gets his way. His "ransom demand" is total capitulation to his demands for endless spending, the total takeover of medicine by Obamacare, and the centralization of power in the hands of the few. < snip > Obama holds America hostage to his outrageous demands Everything you are witnessing here isn't a "government shutdown," folks. This is Obama holding a gun to the head of the American people, keeping the nation hostage until Obama gets 100% of what he wants: unlimited debt spending, a socialist sick-care system called "Obamacare," and a blank check from Congress to bury our nation in even more debt from which we can never escape. What's next, are they going to shut down all the interstates? Block deliveries of gasoline? Halt food supplies to local grocery stores? At what point does this "shutdown theater" equate to acts of state-sponsored terrorism against the American people? The message from Obama is clear: Give me all your money or I'll make life miserable for everyone. This is the tactic of a mafia organization, not a legitimate government. Obama administration utterly abandons its duty to the People That our own government would turn to such tactics is absolutely disgusting. In order to force Obamacare down the throats of everyone, Obama would dishonor our war veterans, intentionally interfere with tourists, fake a government website shutdown, and even order park rangers to make life as miserable as possible for visitors. This administration has no sense of integrity, nobility or serving the interests of the American people. Like any mafia group, the Obama administration exists solely to serve its own interests and increase its power at any cost, regardless of the cost to society. Can you imagine the outcry from the mainstream media of George W. Bush had selectively closed a World War II veterans memorial? He would have been accused of dishonoring America's greatest generation. But somehow when Obama does it, the media applauds. That'll show 'em! Shut it down, 'Bama! CONTINUE . . .
