NO, There are NOT “Two Sides” to the Government Shutdown Debate
WTF is up with this “liberal media” we keep hearing about? There SHOULD be some media bias when they’re reporting on something as blatantly one-sided as the Republican Party taking 300 million hostages. When one side is a bunch of cocksuckers and the other side is trying to act like grownups, the media should call it like it is. They can put away their phony “objectivity” and simply refer to the government shutdown debate in terms of the cock-sucking douchebags versus the grownups.
It’s not “biased” to point out that one person is taller than the other, or that a Ferrari goes faster than an old VW van. And there’s nothing slanted or opinionated about saying that one political party has a gun to the country’s head and the other party is trying to defuse the situation.
Enough of these “unbiased” headlines about “Finger-pointing from both sides” and “the two parties are blaming each other.”
If a would-be victim decided to fight back against a mugger, these “unbiased” reporters would say “Oh look, there’s a fight going on.” “Now let’s be fair to both sides. The mugger’s version of the story is _________________”
The Republican Party has become virtually disabled when it comes to winning elections or achieving their agenda through the legislative process. They couldn’t stop the Affordable Care Act from becoming law, the Supreme Court has upheld it, and the party responsible for the Affordable Care Act trounced the GOP in the 2012 election. And this trouncing took place in spite of the Far Right’s massive Block The Vote drive in so many swing states. (Solution: More voter suppression.)
The only tactic the Republican Party has left is to hold the entire country hostage. Delay Obamacare or the global economy gets it. In a few weeks, when the debt ceiling becomes the next hostage, it’ll be “approve the Keystone XL pipeline, delay Obamacare and suspend all EPA regulations or the country goes into freefall.”
Where does this shit end? Why bother with this labyrinthine cumbersome legislative process at all? It’s so much easier to just take hostages and say “Do this or the country gets it!”
After hostage-taking and blackmailing have become more commonplace and more accepted, we might all start getting in on the act; especially with local political issues. “I have some remote-controlled explosive devices planted throughout the Civic Center. As long as the city council votes the way I want, nobody will get hurt.”
And if you should try the above tactic, the media will be sure to tell YOUR side of the story.
