As the U.S. government slides toward helplessly and inevitably into catastrophic shutdown, we, as citizens, are forced to impotently and helplessly watch the carnage with no recourse of action but to wonder why.
Why? Why is this happening? What dark forces are at play behind the scenes to bring about such a loathsome situation.
Wait, maybe it's this…
Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) suggested Thursday that President Obama might have begun planning a government shutdown last year with "malicious" intent.
"Why was it that a few months ago… when the president had both Houses under the control of his party — why did he opt not to pass a budget for fiscal year 2011?” asked Lee, who helped found the Senate's Tea Party Caucus earlier this year.
"It was either irresponsible on one hand or deliberate and malicious on the other with intention to bring about a sequence of events that would culminate inevitably in a government shutdown," said Lee.
Of course! It all makes so much sense now. How did I not see this before?
If the government shuts, then there'll be nobody to stop the terror babies from crawling into the country through our borders. We'll be knee-deep in Muslim atheist toddlers in no time! Stock up on mashed carrots! Babies hate mashed carrots! It's your only hope for survival!
Oh my god! We're through the looking glass, people!
