  2. Ted Cruz has bigger balls than anyone in D C.

    Except maybe Hillary Clinton.

  3. Congress Critter Corrine Brown said the gubmint was “shat down.”
    Now ain’t that some “scat.”

  4. By posting this image I know I run the risk of masked agents attacking my neighbor and getting their dog shot, but it is a risk I am willing to take.


  5. Funny stuff from the Sultan:

    The United States of America (1787-2013) came to a swift and sudden end last night as the government shut down. The nation which had survived Pearl Harbor, the War of 1812 and Jimmy Carter ceased to exist.

    The savage population, which had only been kept in line through a policy of rigorous gun confiscations, food stamps and Green Energy programs unleashed its pent up rage in a spree of riots, looting and mass murder that had only previously been encountered in Somalia.

    “The government shut down! We can do anything we like,” shouted Sam Hasbley of Grassley, Iowa, while tearing the tag off a mattress despite an explicit warning label forbidding such a dangerous course of action. “Tear yours off. The government is shut down. It can’t stop you.”

    Eyewitnesses spoke of further horrors. On a quiet street in suburban Massachusetts, a man brought out a set of highly illegal lawn darts. In Maryland, there were allegations that an entire family had begun digging ditches to collect rainwater runoff.

    With the fall of the government, citizen activists took it upon themselves to chronicle the culture of lawlessness. Men played Gibson guitars made of wood imported from India, but not finished by Indian workers. Women bought cold medicine without a photo ID. Children went hours without hearing lectures about the environment.

    The victims were many. In Chuckolod County, Colorado, a transgender person was denied access to the Ladies Room. Frantic calls to the Justice Department were forwarded to an answering service in Depar, India, instead of Doneparre City, Indiana. In Brooklyn, New York, an overweight Senegalese woman was unable to obtain a sign language interpreter while waiting on line to collect her free Obamaphone. In Olegon Falls, Florida, the National Museum of Native American Yarn was forced to shut down depriving schoolchildren of an educational experience and three hours throwing bits of yarn at each other.

    And there was worse to come.

    The entire city of Detroit was seized by the Michigan Militia backed by Canadian air power. The village of Frankfurt, Illinois passed several ordinances in explicit violation of Title MXVIII of the Federal Charter of Approved Fruit Naming Ordinances. North Dakota seceded and declared that it was now the nation of Bismarckia, elected a Kaiser and petitioned to join OPEC.

    An army of Mongols or possibly local residents dressed in Samurai helmets raided the Federal Dried Peach Reserve in Georgia hauling away thousands of tons of dried fruit and tossed them to waiting crowds. The end of food stamps in Martho, New Jersey led to an outbreak of cannibalism despite efforts by ACORN volunteers to bring order to the proceedings by soliciting volunteers to give up their privilege and be fed to the people.

    In Massey Hills, Virginia, a gang of politically incorrect sports mascots entered a workplace and implicitly hurt the feelings of several minorities. Their calls to the Justice Department were forwarded to Eric Holder’s private voicemail along with frequent messages from his coke dealer demanding to be paid, like right now, and requests for weapons manuals from several Mexican cartel bosses.

    In Madison, Wisconsin, the entire United Organized Educators and Librarians Union attempted to commit mass suicide on the front lawn of the Madison Center of Union History to protest budget cuts and school closings. Their efforts proved in vain when the gasoline they poured on themselves in a failed attempt at self-immolation turned out to be apple juice.

    In Caplow City, Maine, President Gerald Ford, long thought dead and believed to have been buried in Michigan, appeared and declared himself to be the nation’s new leader. While some suspect him to be an impostor based on the plastic texture of his mask which has a hastily erased message reading “Impeach Nixon” on the side, the city fathers have chosen to embrace the possibilities offered by Emperor Ford and have set him up in style in a presidential palace on the eight floor of the Caplow Arms Hotel.

    In the midst of all this chaos, a weary nation’s eyes turn to Washington D.C. But since the shutdown, which also shut off all power, water and press releases to the embattled city, no word has reached the outside world of what is taking place there. The last message was a smoke signal dispatched by Elizabeth Warren from the roof of a burning Capitol Building. An expert in Native American smoke signals decoded it to read, “I told you so. Now we’re all doomed.”

    The only surviving member of the national government outside the dead zone is believed to be Vice President Joseph Biden who showed up on a beach in Waddiddi, Florida, where he has spent hours entertaining himself by building an elaborate 1/100 scale model of the White House out of sand. Attempts to inform him that the tide was coming in have fallen on deaf ears.

    As the nation descends into chaos, one thing is clear. The government shutdown has once again doomed us all. Just like the last 17 times.

    • Bwahahahaha! Hey, KIDS! You are now free to set up lemonaid stands

    • Oooh! Ooooh! Quick! Engage in under-the-table commerce because the IRS is at Hooters.

      /Where they still better remember to declare their tips as income because those agents know EXACTLY how much they tipped.

    • The Sultan can serve up a fine Knish.

  6. Since Sunday night at about 9:15p.m. only one song has been rumbling around in my brain pan and it ain’t SRV.

  7. When Badfinger came out with that song, the guitar riffs, and to a lesser degree the vocals reminded me of The Beatles.

    I quit watching BrBa a few years ago, it was just too dark for me.

    • I only really started watching BB a few years ago, when I expressed to someone I didn’t like or identify with any of the main characters.
      They explained it to me…that was the whole point, the theme, if you will. Not the traditional antagonist vs. protagonist. It was an epiphany.
      Since that time I went back and watched every episode, including one’s I had only seen part of so when the final show, the 61st episode was on Sunday, it all came together.
      There was no redemption or salvation for Walter White and the only real victory was that the dark alter ego, “Heisenberg” was gone. Walter was able to extract some revenge on some other evil people, while able to repair some damage done to those that became accomplice/victims to his crimes.
      Brilliant writing, maybe the best I’ve ever seen.

      The lyrics to the song were perfect…”guess I got what I deserved.” And the title of the song was fitting for the 99% pure drug he was producing which was “baby blue.”
      The hits on this song both on utube and itunes is mind boggling, as an entire generation of people have been exposed to it from the scene in the video.
      When I first heard “Baby Blue” back in ’71, I thought it was the Beatles.

    • Oh, me, too. I forgot who did it.
