Today in grumpy old man news

(via C&L)
About 90 World War II vets from Mississippi arrived in Washington, D.C., Tuesday, determined to visit the World War II Memorial—shutdown or no shutdown. When they reached the barricaded memorial, the red, white, and blue–clad gang—many of them in wheelchairs—just kept moving, knocking down gates to get inside.

You know, if it wasn't for old people in places like Mississippi, there probably wouldn't be a government shutdown keeping people out of the WWII memorial. Maybe if folks like old guys from Mississippi didn't vote for looney right-wing teabagger idiots, maybe we'd have a Congress that isn't opposed to keeping a functioning government going. And of course, the shameless teabaggers of Congress were there to pretend that they were somehow standing with the people? Or something? Pretending that they weren't ONE HUNDRED PERCENT responsible for this shutdown.

And of course, they're all falling for it. Of course they're all buying this charade that these teabagging imbeciles are defending common folks from the big bad government shutdown, completely oblivious to the fact that these teabaggers are entirely responsible for this shutdown because they will shut down the government if they don't get exactly what they want every time no matter who wins the election.

This is what you get from people who live in the FOX bubble, when they get all their "information" from the Limbaughs, Hannitys and Becks of the world. And until these people finally get senile enough to not be able to find their way to the polling station. we're going to be stuck with these teabagger assholes.


Today Google informed me that this is the 123rd anniversary of the opening of Yellowstone Park

And today is the day the National Parks shut down because a bunch of spoiled children can't accept that some people might get better healthcare because the black guy might get the credit.

Thanks, GOP, you pathetic gaggle of pig-fuckers.
