800,000 Federal Workers…Millions Of Vulnerable People…& Our Farmers…Are In Dire Straits By This “Stupid-Ass” Government Shutdown. Our Super Hero…Donald Trump…Chimes In With… “I Can Relate.” The Only Thing Donald Trump Truly Relates To Is…Being A Corrupt, Lying-Ass Bastard Whose Hell Bent On Cheating & Beating…Everybody He Can.

Right now…as I’m writing this…

800,000 federal workers” …who are your family…your friends…your neighbors…your co-workers…a-r-e…NOT getting paid, right now, because of this DUMB-ASS… “government shutdown.”

Vulnerable families”… who are your family…your friends…your neighbors…your co-workers…a-r-e… going to lose their food assistance…because of this DUMB-ASS… “government shutdown.”

Farmers” …who are your family…your friends…your neighbors…are going without crop payments…because of this DUMB-ASS…government shutdown.”

As of today, Saturday, January 12, 2019, this is the longest “government shutdown” in the HISTORY of this country.   It has now been 22 days since the government shutdown. And, there is no end in sight for this shit. 

I know folks who are being impacted by this.  Their families have less money, to pay their bills, because the government paychecks…have LITERALLY stopped.  In a capitalistic society (which we live in), we need money in order to pay bills…by food, etc…  A society where we can’t just ignore the fact that the electric bill is w-a-a-a-y past due.  Oh, that is…UNLESS, we want to be sitting our asses up in the dark.  Now…

On January 9, 2019, the Washington Post reports on how the “government shutdown” is impacting a 70-year-old Kentucky woman by the name of Betty Gay.  The Washington Post reports… “Gay, 70, was counting on a $20,000 loan from the Agriculture Department this winter to patch the hole in the roof of the ranch-style Mount Sterling home she’s lived in for 30 years. When it rains, the retired nurse’s aide covers her bathroom floor with buckets and towels. Mold festers on the damp walls.  The agency can’t process Gay’s application because its workers have been furloughed.”

On January 5, 2019, NBC news reports that if the “government shutdown” continues MILLIONS of Americans…will not get the food stamp assistance they need in order to eat.  NBC news tells us… “More than 19 million households in the United States receive food stamps, accounting for nearly 39 million people. Each household receives on average $245.28 per month.  But because of the shutdown, USDA has no money to pay for the program in the ensuing months. The agency also had to furlough approximately 95 percent of Food and Nutrition Services, the office that oversees the SNAP program.”  O.k…

On another practical level…   I don’t know about yall but, I don’t plan on leaving the  ground in the very near future.  Meaning???  Meaning…with the “government shutdown,” TSA (Transportation Security Administration) workers all calling in sick, left & right.  So…  If there are fewer workers, how thorough do you think they are able to do their jobs.   Now, for the record…   I don’t appreciate having my ass patted by airport workers, either.  BUT, D-A-A-A-M-N…at least there is some comfort in knowing that we are being checked to some reasonable degree…for security purposes.   Sooooo…

What the hell is going on now???   TRULY…ONLY GOD KNOWS!!!

Yesterday, the Huffington Post reports… “Because TSA workers are classified as providing essential services, they must continue to work through the shutdown with no pay coming in and can face disciplinary action for unexplained absences.  Meanwhile, the TSA employee union claims that a loss of staff over the shutdown could create a “massive security risk” for travelers if the agency is left short-handed.  As the situation deteriorates at these jobs, some experts warn that it may also increase the risk of corruption at borders, prisons and airports.”

O.k

Last year, the U.S. government pledged to help farmers who suffered losses for crops because of the international trade war with China.   For example…  Before the trade war, China’s purchase of  U.S. produced soybeans counted for approximately 60 percent of the U.S. soybean market.  With the trade war, Chinese purchase of U.S. produced soybeans has dropped to almost nothing.  That’s a hell of a hit for farmers.  Especially, in light of the fact that the Chinese purchase of 60% of the U.S. soybeans, in 2017, was valued at more than $ 12 billion dollars.    CNBC reported on December 12, 2018… “With those exports gone, soybean prices had tumbled to their lowest in a decade, heaping pain on U.S. farmers, a key Trump constituency.”   So…

The U. S. government offered up to $12 billion dollars in aid, in an effort, to help the farmers offset any losses.  However…  However…  However… With the current government shutdown…these farmers… have been left waiting for their support checks to arrive.  And…   The farmers who want to apply for the “pledged government aid”…have no way to apply for it right now.  Why???  Because the USDA offices are closed.   Now…

Remember…their bills are not going to stop coming because the “check” is late.   Their bills are not going to stop coming because they have not even applied, yet, for government assistance.  HELL  NO!  Shit don’t work like that.   The banks STILL want to be paid.   The mortgage holder STILL wants to be paid.   The electric company STILL wants to be paid.  And, yes…even the grocer…who sells the farmers food…STILL…wants to be paid…when that farmer shops for groceries.   So…

WHAT THE HELL!        WHAT THE HELL!

It would be one thing if the government shutdown was for a godly cause.  But…IT’S NOT!  There is no good reason, under the sun, for the government to be shutdown.

Donald Trump…who lacks any compassion for the well-being of anyone…outside himself…has caused the government to shutdown because the Congressional Democrats refuse to allot 5 billions dollars for some stupid ass wall along the southern border of the United States. You know…   The wall that will keep out those Hispanic “mothers & children” who are suppose to be hell bent on “raping & murdering” …the rest of us.   And, you know what…   I am really exhausted from sleeping with one-eye open, because I’m s-o-o-o-o-o-o-o damn terrified about a 3-year old Hispanic serial killer crossing the U.S. border with a butcher knife.  Yeah…  I’m afraid they’re going to pull a “Psycho” …on my ass.  Oh, well…  I guess I’ll try counting sheep.  Anyway…

It’s not even as if Donald Trump…R-E-E-E-A-A-L-L-Y…wants the wall.  Because he doesn’t.   He could give less than a damn about some wall being built in order to provide the rest of us with “national security.”  Shit…   Vampires could swoop down on my ass…suck all of my blood & then, drop me on the front lawn of the White House.  Upon hearing the news …we might get a … “mmmpphhh” …out of Trump.  But, that’s about all.  HE DOESN’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THE REST OF US!!!  So…

Why then all the hoopla (which includes shutting down the government) because Democrats won’t give Trump the money for the wall?  You should know it’s all about something that Donald Trump REALLY does want.   O.k…  Let’s back it up a little…   Remember, Donald Trump, during the 2016 Presidential campaign, went all over the country inflaming hate-filled hearts with… “WE ARE GOING TO BUILD A WALL & MEXICO IS GOING TO PAY FOR IT!!!”   He now feels that he has to fulfill this pledge…in order to get these folk to vote for his rotten ass…again in 2020.  And… He has to figure out how to fulfill his pledge when Mexican leaders have let it be known, in no uncertain terms, that Mexico is NOT paying for any wall.

On January 24, 2018, the Huffington Post reports… “…Vicente Fox made his feelings about President Donald Trump’s proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall crystal clear, once again. Mexico’s former president doubled down on previous statements that his country would not foot the bill for Trump’s southern barrier on Tuesday’s broadcast of “The Opposition With Jordan Klepper.” “I said, I’m not paying for that fucking wall,” said Fox.”

You just gotta “love” Vicente Fox…

Now…

To add insult to injury…Donald Trump has the nerve to say…that the government shutdown could go on for “months or even years.”   On January 7, 2019, People reports… “Amid a grinding shutdown of the federal government that has left hundreds of thousands of employees without pay for weeks, President Donald Trump said he “can relate” to their plight. “I can relate, and I’m sure that the people that are on the receiving end will make adjustments — they always do — and they’ll make adjustments,” he told NBC’s Kelly O’Donnelll after she asked, “Can you relate to the pain of federal workers who can’t pay their bills?””

You tell me…  What the hell does this spoiled…selfish man…who probably had his ass wiped, by some Nanny, until he was 10 years-old…know about the economic…& financial suffering of regular folk???  What does he know about having to make the choice between paying the gas bill (which provides heat) & buying food???  What does he know???  I’ll tell you.   Not a got damn thing!  So…

His stupid…insensitive comments…are no surprise to me.  How could I be surprised by anything that such an evil…& wicked person says???  You see…   I know who we are dealing with, in this man we call…Donald Trump.   I know that this battle is a spiritual one…because Trump for damn sure is serving the Devil.  So…

What do we do???

We pray our asses off.  We pray in the morning…noon &…at night.  We pray for God’s intervention into this situation.   We don’t leave this up to man.  What can man do…when they are bickering 24/7…while others, go hungry???   Only God can stop the Devil, his demons & his human workers.  So we humbly ask our Heavenly Father to intervene and bring about an end to this government shutdown…according to His will.

You see…  We are praying for the Heavenly Father’s children.   And, remember, our Heavenly Father tells us…

“…The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.” (James 5:16)  “18 Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert and always persevere in supplication for all the saints.” (Ephesians 6:18) 

Also…

Government workers need to stand-up and protest against the shutdown.  Get your asses out in the streets and tell your employer (the Government) that you ARE NOT going to take this shit anymore.  Don’t be afraid to let your voices be heard.  Contact your Republican Congressional legislators (who are still receiving their paychecks) and let them know that YOU WILL hold them accountable, at election time, for this bullshit.   Tell them rascals to contact that no good Donald Trump & tell him to back-the-*^%$-off.   That is, unless, he starts paying these workers out of his own pocket.
