If you haven't heard, the U.S. Government is in shutdown mode right now. Many offices and employees are out of a job right now as Congress continues to fight and argue over money basically.
It's enough to drive U.S. citizens mad.
Before tipoff of the San Antonio Spurs-Denver Nuggets preseason game tonight, CBS Sports' Matt Moore caught up with head coach Gregg Popovich to get his reaction on the current state of affairs for the United States.
And in true fashion, Pop didn't hold back saying foreigners think the U.S. is looking "silly" right now. Check it out.
Reagan and Tip O'Niel found ways to work together to bring America back from the depths of the recession under Carter. Those days are long gone.
The unemployment rate is unacceptable. Our debt is unacceptable. The expansion of government at this rate is unacceptable as are the growing number of regulations that kill not only jobs but the human spirit.. This whole mess is unacceptable. We are at a serious crossroads.
This is America. We don't have kings and we don't have ruling classes. More and more people are waking up and saying 'enough.'
Vote the bums out indeed
Pop makes $5MIL per year explaining how to play basketball to the likes of Tim Duncan, and he is talking about grown people playing with toys?
By the way, the government is only 13% shut down ... and being a CPA, I am thrilled to point out that the IRS made the 13%.
Its not about money. Its about a group of people who believe that everyone should fend for themselves and an idea tha America was once a great country before brown minorities started demanding things.
ACA ( Obamacare) was the 1st demand by these folks and in order to save face, the argument has shifted to budget amounts. When their pary was in power, deficits didn't matter, now when the brown guy is in the White House, we must cut food stamps, and safety net programs to balance the budget.
Don't get caught in false equivalents- follow the steps. Its the alwasy the guy who retaliates who get penalized . nit the guy throwing the 1st punch. Its the Tea Party guys who through the 1st punch and fell Obama is not a legitimate president.
Yes, we are all losing and look silly, but anyone want to watch the H or Commons, of the Italian "congress, or many other places where people actually throw punches. How bad do we really look ???
"It is all about winning and losing." I plan on voting everyone out on both sides that had anything to do with this shutdown because there are no American citizens that are winners in this shutdown. The two party system is destroying this country.
"The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty."
George Washington farewell presidential speech.
