Chicken Little & the Government Shutdown: Relishing “A Little Nonsense”


“A little nonsense, now and then, is relished by the wisest men.”

– Willy Wonka, ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’

Chicken Little

To hear DemoLibs and the lamestream media tell it, Chicken Little hasn’t just flown into Congress this week, he’s taken up roost for the duration. Fret not. DemoLib squawks regarding The Dreaded Government Shutdown and sky is falling shills notwithstanding, maybe this shutdown is “just what the doctor ordered” (pun intended), especially for those clamoring for a government solution to every problem.

Maybe the shutdown will show just how big government is, and how far the burgeoning leviathan under current operation has grown since its inception in that quaint geriatric document Obama and his minions are so fond of ignoring: The U.S. Constitution. It may also shine the light of truth on just how far the federal government has strayed from the limited government outlined in Article 1, Section 8 – and how much it costs in both dollars and individual liberties.

A Double Dose?

Here’s another potential plus related to the government shutdown: it might highlight government dependency and over-reach in America – and how much it costs. Again.

Oh, wait. We can’t risk a double dose of common sense and personal responsibility breaking out now, can we? That might ruin the DemoLib “We’re from the government and we’re here to help, kindly look the other way while we dig deeper into your pocket” script. After all, a government shutdown might deprive DemoLibs of the means to buy more votes. Egad!

On the Bright Side

Perhaps the federal government will remain shut down long enough that we may see liberty take wing and tyranny crash into the ash heap of “a little nonsense.”

What say you?
