The very definition of the word Putz (at least the ones above) will make this a non-denominational blog. How better to describe POTUS the Putz, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner just to name a few. At this moment, Obama and the leadership in both parties are putting together a plan to raise the debt ceiling without cutting a single dollar in spending. We fought hard to maintain the spending cuts Congress already agreed to through the Budget Control Act, but now they’re trying to erase even those modest cuts.
If your congress person and Senator support the American People and are trying to repeal or postpone ObamaScare, if they are pushing for budget cuts and fiscal control, support them. Contribute to their campaign , or at least take time to email-fax-call to let them know you support them and encourage them to stand strong.
If, on the other hand, if your representatives are senile like John McCain (AZ) or think like Claire “Cruz scrambled his Eggs” McCaskill (MO), then let ’em know they will be standing around with their “putz” in their hand cause they will get no support from you.
I had this posted, and then read a forwarded email about the current shutdown. After some thought, I decided to add it to this post.
“I wondered about all those signs that just magically appeared over night ? ? ? ? The Government shutdown….. An Interesting thought I have worked in the government on and off for 40 years. During that time I became quite familiar with requisitions, bidding, awarding contracts etc. It is a time consuming process with bean-counters and pencil-necked bureaucrats every step of the way. The simplest request takes months not days or hours.
In less than 8 hours of the shutdown, miraculously, professionally printed 3X4 foot signs appeared all over the country in the tens of thousands saying-“this [park, facility, etc. with custom logos] closed due to government shutdown. There has not been a government shutdown in 17 years. These signs were designed, specifications were determined, signs were then requisitioned, bids were posted and vetted, government contracts were awarded. The materials were then ordered and the signs manufactured then distributed U.S. Mails or freight companies.
This shutdown was orchestrated and planned well in advance at least 6-8 month ago. Millions of tax dollars were appropriated and spent in this process. There is a paper trail a mile long leading directly to the White House.
People do not realize just what we are dealing with!”
