The U.S. government is run by a bunch of morons! (no surprise)

I've always kept my mouth shut on the topic of politics because quite frankly I'm not overly interested in it.  However, whenever I see blatant government stupidity and disregard for the overall good going on, I'm motivated to speak out.

If the U.S. government shuts down this week because our elected Congress-men/women can't resolve their disagreements, then I fall firmly in the camp of feeling that our leaders are complete idiots.

Additionally, if the government shuts down then the paychecks of our elected people in Congress should stop too.  Better yet, they should all be voted out of office.  Maybe that will get them going!  If I didn't do my job and did nothing but argue, and contributed to my company failing, then I would get fired.  Simple as that.  These guys should get fired too....

I said it before and I'll say it again.  If Donald Trump runs for President (which he's considering doing and I wrote about it at this link), then I bet he would really rattle our traditional government ranks to the core.  He might not win, but he would hopefully scare a lot of people into seeing things straight and make them understand what has to happen to "fix" the U.S. economic situation.   I would vote for him in one second.  Listen to him talk about political topics and you might give him a second look too.  He did a great interview today on CNN.

What do you think?


  1. the number of ordinary everyday people who get screwed by a government shut down is what people forget. soldiers, national park workers, government workers, all these people go without pay because congress can't get it done. it's shameful.

  2. Hi...Thanks for your comment on my blog.

    Yes, that's one of the most disturbing things about this. I read that about 800,000 families who have government jobs, etc, will be directly affected by a shutdown. Not to mention all of the people who will be indirectly and significantly affected.

    It's a terrible, ridiculous, embarrassing situation for the U.S. to get itself into. It really makes us look very stupid in the eyes of the world, not to mention our own citizens.
