While I was perusing through headlines looking for topics to write about, I saw the following article:
The article talks about the real danger of a possible nuclear strike on Washington DC. The opening paragraphs state:
“Funny question in the headline, yes?”
“But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists’ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event.”
“Well, no. And yes.”
My first reaction when I read the title of the article was ‘celebrate.’
To think of our inept Congress, the evil White House and the corrupt Justice Department being obliterated by a nuclear bomb would mean we would have to elect a whole new batch of politicians. With the current levels of Congress’ approval ratings being at single digits, a whole new election would have to be an improvement. The latest Rasmussen Report indicates that 72% of Americans believe that we would be better off if most of Congress was NOT re-elected.
However, after the celebration is over the realization soon sets in that such an event wouldn’t clean out Washington DC as first expected.
Chances are the Obama family would be off somewhere on another one of their multimillion dollar vacations at taxpayer expense. Vice President Joe Biden would be off somewhere trying to convince the world that Russian President Vladimir Putin is a bully that needs to be stopped. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid would be in Nevada, helping the federal government steal the land from a cattle rancher so that the company Reid’s son works for could build their solar generator plant on the property. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi would in back in California telling everyone how wonderful Obamacare is.
So unfortunately, if a nuclear bomb was to go off in Washington DC, we might lose most of Congress and quite possibly Eric Holder and the Justice Department but we would still be left with Obama, Biden Reid and Pelosi. Perhaps a whole new Congress would have the patriotism to charge all four of them with the crimes against the nation that they have committed and remove them from office and slap their butts in jail where they belong. Gee, it might work out better after all.
