"The so-called “government shutdown” isn’t really a government shutdown at all. It’s a public services shutdown. Food aid to needy families will stop. Over one thousand food safety and inspection workers will not go to work. Veterans looking to apply for benefits will face serious delays. The IRS won’t answer the phone to help you prepare your taxes, and will stop processing returns. Depending on where you live, you might have a difficult time getting your passport renewed. Zoos and museums are closed effective immediately.But the government’s guns and surveillance state apparatus chug on without much of a blip at all.

[…]

The NSA, fully funded and operational, won’t have any problem continuing to map our social and associational patterns. The FBI will still map ethnic communities and spy on peace and justice activists. The CIA will go on plotting and executing its extrajudicial drone killings in places like Pakistan and Yemen. The DEA will still use NSA intercepts to sneakily forward drug prosecutions while hiding from judges and defendants the intelligence that sparks investigations. Customs, Border Protection will go on harassing Muslims and immigrants at the border, humiliating citizens and visitors alike for no good reason. ICE will continue to deport and detain immigrants, tearing families asunder. The surveillance state will go on, ‘protecting’ a shell of a civilization. We might not be able to eat, but at least someone will be watching us starve."

Wendy Davis had officially announced her candidacy for Texas Governor and NO I’M NOT CRYING YOU’RE CRYING

NIKE SPONSOR THIS WOMAN

Fuck money. Fuck campaign funding. MAKE THIS WOMAN GO VIRAL. If every internet junkie in Texas votes for her, she’ll win without a penny.

Seriously guys, elect people to office that are actually intelligent. YOU DO HAVE THIS POWER.

"This shutdown is not the result of the two parties acting equally irresponsibly. It is the product of an increasingly radicalized Republican Party, controlled by a deeply disaffected base that demands legislative hostage-taking in an effort to get what it has not been able to attain through the electoral process or the judiciary.

Republicans in the House are making demands that are both preposterous and largely unrelated to budgetary matters. In return for keeping government running (and, even more ominously, for paying its bills), they want President Obama to undermine the health care law that he ran on in 2008 and 2012, and now considers his signature domestic accomplishment.

No president of either party could accept that kind of badgering. No president should, as it would set a terrible precedent."

USA Today's editorial board, on the “shutdown party” and where Americans should place the blame for the federal government shutdown. When the fence sitters at USA Today take a side AND sound reasonable, y’all know you did something wrong. (via bapgeek)

USA TODAY???

Damn, son.

That’s when you know you’ve been told.

(via dontbearuiner)

"The hard right is so angry at Obamacare and, frankly, at President Obama and the fact that he just trounced them in 2012 on an election that was run on their issues, that––they are so angry and white-hot that their rhetoric just becomes totally detached from reality and totally detached from the truth."
- Sen. Chuck Schumer (via quickhits)

Shutting Down Government Is The Most Fun White Men Can Have Without Coming To A Compromise

The Only Difference Between Throwing A Temper Tantrum And Shutting Down The Government Is Press Coverage

There’s a Good Reason We Shut Down the Government Honey, We Just Haven’t Thought of It Yet

next time you go to accuse a teenage girl of overreacting remember that when a bunch of elderly white men couldn’t agree on something, they shut down the government
