Dingy Harry and Obama said what?

So, let me get this straight. According to Dingy Harry, conservatives are now anarchists, moderates are conservatives, what?

Did Obama just say that congress was elected to fund the government and all the programs passed into law?

I gotta say Joseph Goebbels would be proud of you 2, tell a lie enough and eventually people will believe it’s the truth. (paraphrased)

I had the most interesting conversation the other day with a coworker. I mentioned something about defunding Obamacare and he said, “how can they do that, it’s already a law?” Really! This was not some 20 or 30 something, this was a 58 year old man. Now, I work in a business where the average intelligence quotient is way above average, here’s a guy who’s been around a while, and he knows that little about government and what they do and what their function is. He’s not a bad guy, he comes into work, he works hard and he’s loyal to the company. He just has his head down and is too busy to pay attention to the man behind the curtain. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people like that out there. They get their news and form their opinions on little bits and pieces. This is what we are up against.

People like these will never take the time to figure out what’s really going on until it hits home. Then they feel blindsided and the blame everyone. This shutdown, which has affected many of us evil government contractors, is a great example. A few of us saw this coming. The rest had no clue what was happening. When you tell them that the house passed a bill to fully fund the government except for delaying Obama care for a year and that the senate wouldn’t even consider it, they kind of look at you like you’re crazy. I can only hope that plants the seed that gets these people more informed. I’m not holding my breath.
