There’s an old saying that the American federal government is a giant that’s so fat, it can’t even tie its own shoes.
Yeah, that’s a frightening visual, but you know what’s even scarier? A certain quote from our 35th president;
“The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all.” – President John F. Kennedy
Hopefully, the fearmongering of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi over the possibility of a pending presidential shutdown will register with only a relative handful of half-wits.
But what if President Trump actually does “shutdown the government”? Fret not, dear reader. This is actually good news.
The reliably hyper-leftist Washington Post buries deep in their article on the topic at hand that “about” 75 percent of the government will remain up and running.
Furthermore, the WaPo goes on to pout;
In addition to Homeland Security, other agencies that would be affected include the Interior and Agriculture departments, the Justice Department, NASA, the Commerce Department, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Transportation Department, as well as many smaller agencies. These agencies employ more than 600,000 federal workers.
Weird, they say furloughing over half-a-million useless hires is a bad thing.
Anyhow, libertarian-leaning Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) had some rather interesting numbers to share while appearing on the “Kennedy” FBN program. Something about “less than 10 percent…”
By the way… Trump’s body language as compared to Schumer’s is a thing to behold. Lil’ Chuckie is noticeably intimidated by the Trumpian animal spirits he inadvertently released.
