Some of us prefer not to live in fear. Hysterics is a waste of energy.

I thought this article nicely points out the Right wing hypocrisy about the "evil" government....

. SD Ranchers Want To Know: Where's The Government They Voted Against?

By Susie Madrak


Why did teabagging, money-grubbing Rep. Kristi Noem, who went with her hand out to the freedom-destroying federal government last year, vote against Hurricane Sandy aid -- and for a cut in food stamps, while collecting a half-million in subsidies for her family farm?

You know, I'm a pretty sympathetic person. But what kind of numbnut tea drinkers are these people, that it never occurred to them to appreciate what kind of aid they get from the government? Like, WTF?

Yet Washington's shutdown has deprived people here of a traditional safety net: Congress hasn't passed a new farm bill to subsidize agricultural producers, and the lockout means legislators won't be voting on the topic any time soon.

These days, Reder passes a federal Farm Services Administration office whose doors are closed. Like most American ranchers, the 47-year-old is a resilient small businessman used to tending to his own problems, with help from neighbors whose families settled this land generations ago.

Still, he's frustrated and feels that federal lawmakers have turned their backs on the nation's heartland in a time of need.

"We're just a bunch of ranchers from South Dakota — it's hard for our voices to be heard," he said, sitting at the kitchen table at dawn Friday, drinking coffee, fielding calls from fellow cattlemen. "You see crises across the country, the hurricanes and tornadoes, and officials are right on top of it. But something of this magnitude, that has just about leveled this part of the country, and there's nothing."

Many residents in this conservative region had supported the government shutdown as a way to make Washington more fiscally responsible. "But one appropriate role for these guys is to lend a hand after disasters like this," Christen said, "and they're not here."

Remember when your beloved Congresswoman and former South Dakota Snow Queen Kristi Noem, your state's own Caribou Barbie, voted against aid for Hurricane Sandy victims and for food stamp cuts?

YOU VOTED TO PUT MEAN, CRAZY PEOPLE IN CHARGE OF DESTROYING THE GOVERNMENT, AND NOW YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY THE GOVERNMENT ISN'T HELPING YOU? WTF WTF WTF?

Don't you know you're just "takers"?

Don't you know you're supposed to count on your church and community to help with GIANT NATURAL DISASTERS BEYOND IMAGINING? Because freedom? Because cowboys?

You voted for the people who shut down the government. How can you not connect those big honkin' dots?

That's for sure. I don't know why Poet keeps insisting that I should be afraid of the government knowing what I write. Paranoid I suppose.
