Shutdown with Sammy Salmonella

What better way to prove your commitment to proper health care for Americans than by shuttering the national flu vaccine program and stopping food safety inspections?  Clearly, right wing conservatives have your best interests in mind.

Keep in mind that a good number of Republicans, even some known for being fairly loopy themselves, think the right wing House Republicans have gone off the deep end.  And if you think this is government at its worst, just wait for the debt ceiling wrangling.

I know there's a tendency to want to throw up your hands and blame both sides or blame "Congress," but this time, it's pretty clear cut.  When Pete King and Trent Lott think you're nuts, you are definitely nuts.  Enjoy the animation, like, share, comment and don't forget to stockpile food and disaster supplies.

    Really now? Since when has the government kept people safe from ecoli salmanella ETC? I hear of food poisoning all the time in America. Its because they eat raw unprepared food at some greasy restaurant run by illegal immigrants or at Mcdonalds or because they don't cook their food properly. That's despite government inspections.

    And most churchs and missions as well as private organizations run flu vaccine programs.

    I hope the ATF and FEMA are next!

      MAINESTATEGOP - You need to watch the clip again, when you're not Under the Influence. The message didn't suggest anywhere that "the government kept people safe"; merely that now citizens will be more susceptible to those ill effects, without government intervention.
