The way President Obama is handling the “government shutdown” is but another example of why I would have been a better president than him. Below are some reasons why:
- Only “Non-essential” services are shut down. The question isn’t what is essential but who decides what is essential. I would have shut down the IRS, but not because everybody hates it. I would shut it down to send a message to Congress that neither they nor I will get paid as long as there is a shutdown because there is no revenue being collected.
- I’d keep the national parks open because people need to get out more. By the time this shutdown is over, it will be too cold to enjoy the parks.
- The NSA is working as normal. Nobody at the NSA really likes me (except the guy in the corner cubicle who always like to start a ruckus.)
- I’d not only close the Bureau of Wild Horse and Burro closed during the shutdown, I’d close it permanently. I hope the five people who own a wild horse or a burro understand that the 300,000,000 Americans who don’t own one feel that a federal agency isn’t really necessary.
If you cannot afford a prostate exam, the TSA will perform one for you at no additional charge if you plan on flying on an airplane.
UPDATE: The move has been delayed by a week. The official activity will return on Columbus Day. (Thanksgiving Day in Canada)
