The Narcissistic States of Narcissism


My country tis of Me, sweet land of Me, Me, Me…

Of Me I sing.

How could we be living any other reality than the complete dysfunction we are presently experiencing? The I-Me-Mine King and his Kingdom of Me-Me-Me!  We have come to the end of the line of false flags and empty promises. Every penny this government takes in from income tax revenues goes to pay the interest on our debt alone…just the interest…and it’s not enough!

Our government is a stone cold junkie! And too many of us are too self-absorbed to seize our constitutionally ordained authority to hold them accountable and force them into budgetary compliance. Take any speech this I-Me-Mine President has made on ANY subject and notice two things. First count the I-Me-Mines as he lies about how good things are going. Second, watch the I-Me-Mines magically transform into They’s-Them’s-Theirs when he gets to…

Things to Do on A Day Off from Work

5. Have no schedule. It’s great just to do what you want, go where you want, on a whim for once. For me, weekends are typically spent doing stuff I don’t have time to do during the week like cleaning, grocery shopping, paying bills, catching up on correspondence, doing laundry, getting gas in the car, checking my post office box, going to the bank… the list goes on for life maintenance. While I might think about things I’d like to do as the day off approaches, I refrain from actually making a schedule for it, and consciously vow just to go with the moment, the feeling, the inspiration that comes that day.

4. Go somewhere or do something I’ve been wanting to but have been putting off. For me, that might be going to a gallery, going to the ocean, trying a new restaurant for lunch (less expensive than dinner, so if I don’t like it, I’m not out that much money), spending time exploring something on the web uninterrupted (nothing is more wonderful than getting to concentrate on one thing for a nice stretch of time; nice to get away from the ADD of the workplace), taking a drive or day trip to a place I’ve never been before.

3. Be totally lazy. It’s so nice just to stay in pajamas, slug around in slippers, not do my hair, not put on make up, not do the dishes, not straighten up, not work on projects I should. In all honesty, I get bored with this after a while, but for a few slovenly hours, I really like it.

2. Take a nap. Or a few. Nothing is more decadent than doing a little reading, taking a nap, eating a little, taking a nap, stretching and wandering aimlessly around the house, and taking a nap.

1. Sleep late. Okay, actually, sleeping late is the most luxurious thing for me. I’m a light sleeper (which means I don’t always sleep great), so to get a couple extra hours is the best vacation, even if it’s just for one day.

Federal Workers Must Report For Half-Day Despite Shutdown


WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Federal workers will still have to report to work for about four hours Tuesday even though the government is shutting down.

With no late deal averting the midnight Monday shutdown, several federal agencies say employees would be limited to doing work related to the shutdown, including changing voicemail messages, posting an out-of-office message on email, securing work stations and documents and completing time cards.

At the Environmental Protection Agency, for example, employees were told they cannot work on “any projects, tasks, activities or respond to emails.”

The Housing and Urban Development Department said it will close its offices at 1:30 p.m. Other agencies, such as the Labor Department, expect most employees to be gone by midday, but haven’t set a specific time.

What Stays Open During Shutdown

Once they head home, furloughed employees are under strict orders not to do any work. That means no sneaking glances…

GOP Myth Busted, ‘Since the ACA passed, 90 percent of job growth has been full-time.’

The Fifth Column



A rather desperate House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) tweeted Sunday “90% of the jobs created have been part-time. Obamacare creates a part-time economy, part-time opportunity, and a part-time America.”

This, of course, is not true. In fact, the opposite is true. (Sadly, this is becoming the norm – if a Republican is talking, your odds of finding truth are best if you invert claim and work from there.)

Pesky PolitiFact is not impressed with this Republican talking point.

On August 2 of this year, PolitiFact rated a claim by Alan Krueger, the chairman of the president’s Council of Economic Advisers. Krueger said that most jobs created since passage of the health care law have been full-time positions. And he got a…

US hours away from government shutdown


WASHINGTON: US President Barack Obama on Monday prepared Americans for what he called an “entirely preventable” government shutdown while urging Republicans in Congress to reach an 11th-hour deal to avoid economic harm.

With no apparent movement in negotiations, the White House prepared to put in place a skeleton staff on Tuesday to operate essential functions like the National Security Council. Many staff were preparing for furloughs of uncertain length.

And Obama’s own plans seemed up in the air. He is scheduled to leave Saturday on a four-nation, week-long tour to Asia, but a shutdown could force a postponement.

“We have this trip scheduled, and we intend to take it,” said White House spokesman Jay Carney. “You know, we’ll see obviously what happens as the week unfolds.”

Hours before a shutdown was to begin, Obama placed phone calls to the two top congressional Republicans, House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner and…
