The cost of one Satan Meal Deal...

It’s the day after the deal made it through the House.

The deal is now expected to easily clear the Senate and go to the President.

With much of the agreed upon rancidity falling in 2013, I’m not as freaked out as I would have been.

My older brother is autistic and he depends on Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security…so you can bet your ass I’m going to be on the Super Committee like white on rice.

I’m trying not to think about the fact that these wretched knaves are now fixing to hold entitlement programs hostage. My father served this nation in the Air Force and worked up until the day he died at 58 years old – his son, my brother, now receives the Social Security benefit his father didn’t live to collect.

He’s entitled as hell to every dime of it.

Breath…hold…exhale.

Yeah.

Um.

So.

Here’s what is making my Afro hurt at 6:30am Tuesday August 2, 2011.

They’re going on vacation…after pitching the most immature, unprofessional, ig’nant fit I’ve seen in decades up in the people’s House…after pontificating for weeks over government malfunction and how much it costs…

…the same motherfuckers who brought us to the brink of financial ruin are now heading home to “rest” without fixing the FAA SNAFU that they created.

A SNAFU that will end up costing we the people over $1 billion dollars and has now resulted in the loss of 4,000 jobs.

Pause…allow to marinate…continue.


Hard working Americans furloughed…in limbo while Satan’s minions rest up…cause tantrums are exhausting, yo.

$1 billion dollars in revenue lost…to the airlines that jumped on that shit like a beagle on scraps.



A gaggle of fools elected by a gaggle of fools sitting on beaches sipping Long Island Iced Tea, gloating.

And a downgrade of our nation's credit rating still on the table.

Behold, the price of one Satan sandwich, a side of Satan fries, and a large iced Kool-Aid!

This ain’t austerity.

My people call this sabotage.

ABB- I find it so hard to know where to go to actually get information regarding what is going on in my local as well as the federal government. Do you know of any good sites that give this information?

Are you intersted in a specific issue? Budget, healthcare, education?

I am interested in all of the above. I want to know what is going on. All of these areas touch our lives. Help!

Not meaning to snarl your 'fro more than it already is, but . . .

The FAA shut down put 4,000 federal workers out of a job. There are an additional 90,000 construction jobs at various airports gone because the FAA can't pay the contractors.

One more question - what state do you live in?

I don't know if my answer went through, so I am resending. I live in Illinois do you know of a good site?

Gotcha!

Progress Illinois is a good start - http://www.progressillinois.com/

The site covers multiple issues.

For national politics I tend to monitor multiple sites depending on the issue. It's harder to find one good source, but I tend to shy away from single source information anyway.

I recommend that you check out Progress Illinois!
