F*ck You Congress! This Website Lets You Vent Your Government Shutdown Frustrations

From the folks at Cultivated Wit comes a website to vent your frustrations at the ineptitudes of Congress.

In its promo for the website FuckYouCongress.com, the team from digital agency Cultivated Wit asks, "Do you feel angry? Are you exhibiting symptoms of rage, disgust, or utter detestation of any and all news you read, watch, or hear? Then you might be suffering from a crippling condition known as: Being An American Citizen." The "medicine" for this condition is a new website--a technological, fact-based curse-word wonderland. FuckYouCongress.com is, for the frustrated constituent, a daily dose of therapy.

Click on the "there's fucking more" button, and the site auto-generates a fact that gives you one more reason to shout the site's name aloud, covering everything from mistreatment of Native Americans, to a salmonella outbreak that's been worsened by the shutdown, to politicians falling for headlines from TheOnion.com.

Do you feel unburdened by the site? Then you should also feel empowered: It encourages you to "tweet your representative" to tell them via Twitter how, ahem, eff'd off you are. And there's a reminder that you can really exercise your power by voting.

Shutdowns are, interestingly enough, not a strange phenomenon to Cultivated Wit cofounder (and 2011 Most Creative Person) Baratunde Thurston--he shut down his personal Internet life for 25 days as part of Fast Company's #Unplugged experiment. Ultimately, it made him feel like leaving the "hunt for constant digital connection so that we can find and maintain other, deeper connections." Perhaps his new, very online digital tool will make a connection with U.S. politicians.

    Why open Monuments? Are hungry children more important. I am a VET and I abore the site of the people at the world War II memorial using it as an excuse to try and accuse the president.  These same Republicans out there with them are the ones that shut down the government and vote against almost every thing they need.  I also am not impressed because a lot of them fought in World War II and came back and joined the KKK and the Dixicrats of the south. This is for all the Teaparty Congress people who say we need a small government and don't know their very lively hood and standard of living dependens on that government.  If they didn't have it they would be like the people in the minds pitiful and misused and abused by the people they are fodder for presently.

    Ask all Republicans are they ever going to accept an election again?  What is there definition of a Representative Democracy?

    HOUSECLEANING TIME—C. Gardner,
    October 2013—for the people

     

    Legislation
    is not a competitive sport.

    So why are
    we stuck with the high-school-jock sort?

    With blood
    in their eyes and compulsion to win;

    willing to
    do so by any crude sin.

    So selfish
    they drip with the lobbys’ incentive—

    willful,
    disgusting and what’s more, sin-ventive.

    We voted
    them in, now it’s we pay
    the price;

    and what I’m
    about to say isn’t “play nice.”

    But its
    real—more than they
    with their selfish derision—

    “Of, by and for” still the people’s decision.

    Vote the bastards and bitches right out of each
    office

    from ‘14 to ’18—get
    them out of our coffers.

    Both sides
    of the isle and the sleaze in the middle—

    UNLESS they
    have courage to work and not fiddle!

    Don’t listen
    to wool-pullers’ “It’s more complex than that.”

    Have a talk
    with Abe Lincoln—no smoke-screen pork fat!

    The campaigns
    are bullshit—like light in deer’ eyes—

    the
    work for our leaders is just compromise.

    Let’s get
    our officials to serve us, the people;

    or hang
    their foul  laundry from the highest
    court steeple!

    Constitution
    says we, US voters, are bosses;

    so let’s
    oust feuding fuehrers and cut freedom’s losses!

    By 2020 let’s
    re-post Bill of Rghts’ clear-eyed visions--

    and get
    rid of the jerks who  won’t share fair
    decisions.

                                     ____________

    Gotta love the leftists. They get a site up to blame a party that is sending bills to the leftists who are tabling them. We have a president who is seeking to inflict maximum pain on the people. And no sooner than AP publishes a poll that shows the president with a 37% approval (lower than Bush at this point) the DNC gets a site up. clap. clap.

    There are two Americas: one demands that the government do everything for them and another that uses their own resources to fill a need. With all of the technology at our fingertips it has never been easier for small groups of people to magnify their impact, yet too many people choose to sit back and demand that government "do something."  I can't blame them though. It's a lot easier to click a button that sends an FU tweet than it is to write up a business plan and launch an initiative that would expand employment opportunities for Native Americans.

    Simple minded.  If everyone was writing a business plan who would work for you or anyone else.  I guess everyone that works is a fool for not working for his or her self.  This is an I got mine attitude because I was smart enough to be a business person and you are not. Think before you continue to spread this garbage.  Since I heard the "We built it ourselves" I don't answer any questions from any business that calls my home. I decided to adopt your spirit in these cases, I am not getting paid so why do the work?  After all its not my business.
