Washington DC

Faced with eminent shutdown of all government services unless Republicans and Democrats can agree on a Budget (good luck with THAT!), they agreed to let IBM’s WATSON and Facebook® run all government operations in the interim. WATSON, flush with its recent victory on JEOPARDY readily agreed to this as did Mark Zuckerman whose Facebook® now has a larger population than the entire US. Zuckerman said “We’ve already proven that we can mobilize thousands of people, and we already have much better democratic process in place on Facebook® that can permit people to Like or comment on each other’s Facebook quips." WATSON expressed similar optimism that it could run all government operations more quickly and efficiently until the actual government can actually agree on a budget.

In the latest bizarre twist in the growing unrest in Libya, Muammar Gaddafi now blames the unrest on the Wisconsin Public Employees union.

In his speech today he blamed the Wisconsin Public Workers for causing all the Libyan un-rest although it is still unclear how they are connected. Following this speech, Republican Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin went on record as agreeing with Gaddafi on this and also linking it to the missing Democratic State legislators.

Republicans Propose Using Spare F-35 Fighter Engine To Heat Low Income Families

Washington DC

In an effort to show that Compassionate Conservatism is back despite ruthless cuts to social spending, Republicans announced today that they would support continued funding for the extra F-35 strike fighter engine at a cost of a half billion dollars. Although not needed and opposed by Defense Secretary Gates, the extra jet engine would continue provide at least 40 jobs as well as lucrative bonuses for GE Company Executives in John Boehner’s home state. To demonstrate how it would benefit the country, Republicans proposed re-purposing the extra F-35 jet fighter engine to provide heat to low income families whose government subsides for home heating will be eliminated in the forth coming budget.
Republicans say that the engine could be used to replace the 35 million dollar wasteful government subsides for heating to low-income families. Those families whose subsidies were cut could stand around the engine as it fires up to get warm before returning to their freezing homes. In this way Republicans say they can demonstrate their core Tea Party values of Eliminating wasteful spending, Cutting the Deficit, Job Creation, and Compassionate Conservatism.

Satirical News Service
Washington DC

The US Chamber of Commerce responded to Obama’s request to state what regulations were detrimental to job creation. According to the US Chamber, the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution – the Abolishment of Slavery - is a huge barrier to job creation, especially among low income and minority groups.
“Prior to this amendment, there was close to 100% employment of blacks in the South, now unemployment is way up. The repeal of this amendment would create jobs for blacks and other minorities working in small sweatshops and agricultural industries throughout the US and benefit the bottom line of large corporations that pay the biggest share of taxes."

Scientist Say There Evidence Of Global Political Climate Warming

Satirical News Service
Washington DC

Just as Scientists have shown that global climate warming is affecting our weather, they have now found evidence that much of the current turmoil in the Mideast and US is due to Political Climate Warming.
“We’ve seen evidence of this now since 2009 with heated angry rallies by the Tea Party movement and especially in the vitriol of the past midterm elections. Now it appears to be spreading globally affecting the Mideast. Scientists estimate that the global political climate has heated by 15 degrees in the past two years and continues to rise at an alarming rate. This is causing a global melting of sane dialog and moderation. At this rate we will have global flooding of angry political turmoil spreading around the world as the political climate continue to heat up. The exact cause of this Political Global Warming is still unknown, but the dumping of large amounts of cash into the political campaigns in the US and Fox News and Facebook are suspected as prime culprits.”
