Jesse Ventura

If The Govt. Isn't Working


10/2/2013 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jesse Ventura has a message for the U.S. government -- YOU DON'T WORK, WE SHOULDN'T HAVE TO PAY TAXES!!

The former governor and fake wrestler is still fuming over the shut down ... telling TMZ both the Republicans AND the Democrats are the bad guys -- and they should all be thrown out of office!!!

But JV doesn't just want people to get mad, he wants them to get even -- saying, "For every day the government is shut down, it should be that we don't have to pay income tax that day because they're not working."

He added, "They should all be voted out of their office for not doing their jobs ... and vote in everybody BUT Democrats or Republicans because this is what you end up with."

ahem to that... all these government jack offs are still being paid for doing nothing at all. They are probably playing golf right now. Whats really messed up is that Obamacare is nothing but a sneaky way to pay off the deficit. Its not even healthcare. Its nothing but taking money away from the people who can't afford health insurance to begin with.

It doesn't matter. Come January we all become slaves to the insurance companies. You will pay your monthly insurance premium or you will incur penalties and the IRS is authorized to use the full weight of their self-created law enforcement powers to to get it. Remember when Obama said that there would be no tax penalties? He lied.

What's really funny now is once upon a time all we had to worry about was some guy getting blow jobs at lunch time.

Jesse is a very wise and courageous man, with a lot of common sense. It's easy to assume he's crazy because of the Minnesota accent and long donut ring. But - he knows a lot about gov't corruption, secret ops and CIA disasters that have taken place. He's hip to the game and exposes it, which pisses off certain branches of gov't like homeland security and the CIA.
It wouldn't surprise me at all if they were trying to off him.

Even when the government is working --- most of them are "on vacation". Spending big bucks of expensive lunches/dinners; travelling to exotic locations with their families for so-called business meetings; getting kick-backs, etc.. Remove most of them from office - and replace with decent human beings who love America.
