Sigh….I try not to be too blatant in my personal opinions, but ya know, sometimes a bear just has to put his two-cents in the hat in the ring. Or something like that.
Two news stories today made me realize that the situation has just gone way beyond ludicrous. The unconscionable behavior by the Republicans in the House that refuse even to let a vote on the budget be taken is irresponsible in the extreme. And the news stories? Story #1 is about a Republican Congressman who berated a Park Service Ranger for “not doing her job” when it was the House’s unwillingness to act that closed the park in the first place.
Story #2 which I have not read any updates on, but it appears that this morning, there was a shooter/sniper shooting at Congress. Now, I detest violence, and I’m not a fan of guns, but if a peace loving panda is reduced to screaming at the radio when ever a Republican congressperson is telling lies about WHY the government has been shut down, imagine what would happen if an unstable person with access to firearms has his or her financial support cut off because of said inaction of Congress. I’m sure the irony of this situation is lost on those* who refused to enact reasonable gun control legislation. (* Republican/ tea party)
And then, there is the pandacam:
Like Pinky said: The Affordable Care Act is already a law. (and the Supreme Court said it’s OK) Get over it and let everyone get back to work. Alright? And quit trying to blame it all on the President.

Thank You beary much Pwincess Panda for speaking your mind. Not only are you Beeyoutifull, but Smart!

‘tank yoo. we may need to come stay wif cousin funi if tings done calm down around here.
Get onto the NSA Pinky, they have all the surveillance cameras you’ll ever need. Stay cute.
Yeah, den why isn’t da NSA broadcasting me to my fans? Dey is trying to keep my cute princess self all to demselves. Tank you for checking in.
Oh Dog! If they don’t change their minds after THAT, then they never will!
I fear that even panda power is not enough to talk some sense into those who will not listen to anything more than the sound of their own voices.
Well said, Princess. Too bad that we don’t have pandas of logic and reason like you in Congress. This country would be a much better place if we did!
thank you for your kind words, but as I am only 5 weeks old, I is a little too young to run for congress, plus my mom said ‘no’
Princess Pinky, you are gonna be a bear to be reckoned with . . . once you grows up sum mowe.
Yeah! dey better not try to mess wif da princess! I gonna be a bear to be reckoned wif, just like my mom. I jus’ wish you wuzn’t missing dis cute part of my life!
That’s the sanest commentary I’ve heard all week. HUZZAH, Princess Pinky!!
Tank you, Janie! We pandas try to keep up on da issues dat affect pandas and dose dat love them. It seems pretty simple to me, but den I is just 5 weeks old.
Right on, Precious Princess! (Yes, I know that’s not your real name, but can I call you that? You’re just so adorable.)
You can call me anyting you want, long as it’s cute! I will be back on Monday to be cute some more, but my mom said I should lay off of da politics for a whiles, but a princess must speak her mind, don’t you tink?
Well, Sweetie, you are a little young for politics, and you always should listen to your Mom. Moms are nearly always right, even if it doesn’t seem that way right now.
‘kay! maybe when I is a little older.
Princess Pinky is truly wise beyond her weeks!
she is a precocious little darling. Her mother will have her paws full, for sure!
