Tell Senator Paul Broun to get a Real Job
According to Senator Paul Broun (R—Inbred), police officers and firefighters don’t have “real jobs.” You know, ‘cause they’s just a bunch of bureaucrats workin’ for that there gubmint.
Presumably if the Georgia senator’s house catches fire, he won’t bother calling one of them faceless government bureaucrats; he’ll go to the private sector and find somebody with a Real Job to come and put out the fire.
If congressional Republicans refuse to raise the debt limit, at least 250,000 government employees will lose their jobs. Paul Broun was asked about this on a conservative talk show. His response:
“Well those are gonna be government employees that are put out of work. There are a lot of government employees that need to go find a real job!”
Hopefully this government-employed dickwad will be searching for “a real job” after the next election.
And speaking of Republicans playing chicken with the debt ceiling: the landlord says “knock it off!” An advisor to the People’s Bank of China said Republicans are “playing with fire” when they threaten even a brief debt default, just to play chicken with Obama and see who blinks first. He warned that any default would destabilize the global economy:
“I think there is a risk that the U.S. debt default may happen. The result will be very serious and I really hope that they would stop playing with fire. I really worry about the risks of a U.S. debt default, which I think may lead to a decline in the dollar's value.”
Aw come on, the Republicans are having so much fun baiting and toying with that Kenyan Socialist Muslim in the White House. If they can’t keep doing that, what else are they gonna do? Get a Real Job?
