Let’s say you’re a liberal with a lot of garbage who is facing a looming halt in trash pickup and you just can’t wait until the next inauguration of your favorite environmentally friendly president to dump it at a National Mall. What do you do?

Washington (CNN) – If the federal government shuts down come Friday, House Speaker John Boehner may be in for quite a mess at his Washington, D.C. residence if some Facebook users have their way.

A Facebook event, entitled “If Boehner shuts down the government I am taking my trash to his house,” has popped up and is gaining steam as the shutdown showdown ramps up on Capitol Hill. If the federal government shuts down, one of the District’s services that will stop is trash pickup.

“Speaker John Boehner is ready to shut down the government, including District of Columbia city services like trash collection,” it says on the page. “Well, if he won’t allow us to use OUR TAX DOLLARS to pick it up, maybe we should just BRING IT TO HIM.”

As of 2:30 p.m. EST there are 1,476 attending; 126 are listed as maybe; 156 aren’t showing up; and 4,652 are still making up their minds (much like Congress, apparently).

The trash-a-thon is scheduled for Saturday and apparently will last through June 30.

Goodman is listed in the Democratic National Committee network. Treadway is the political and logistics director for the liberal group Netroots Nation.

Netroots… the “new civility” police. Glad to see they’re practicing what they preach.

So in other words, they want to make Boehner’s front yard might look like the DC Mall after the coronation of The One:

If these people are experts in anything, it’s garbage.

Here’s the Facebook page:

Just imagine if a Tea Partier had a “dump trash at Harry Reid’s home” page.

Oh, but here’s the funniest part. They say they’ll go ahead with the “event” even if there isn’t a shutdown, but their garbage dump will be done in a “respectful” way:

Organizers of the event – Jonah Goodman and Nolan Treadway – write on the page that even if the government shutdown doesn’t occur, they will “move forward with this event, we’ll provide details on location(s) and we’ll make sure it’s done in a sanitary and respectful way. Please don’t list any personal addresses for members of Congress on this page.”

How exactly you respectfully dump your trash on somebody’s lawn is anybody’s guess.

I hope Boehner has a couple of pitbulls who haven’t been fed for a while.

Update: Somebody Twittered me that Boehner’s 3rd in the line of succession (2nd in line, but 3rd in this administration — see comments), so it might not be any dogs that get would-be garbage dumpers, but rather the Secret Service or other security.

    By Wisconsin standards, they are being civil, unless they're going to plant some toxic mercury bombs(CFLs) in with the garbage.

    “Well, if he won’t allow us to use OUR TAX DOLLARS to pick it up, maybe we should just BRING IT TO HIM.”

    Epic Connect Fail: Unless you live in NYC, DC or other Lib-run Hell-Hole, United Disposal, Waste Management or other publicly-traded or privately held company picks up the damn trash.

    I believe Michelle M noted during the NYC Blizzard/Temper Tantrum PEU "strike" that Colorado Springs even has the *streets plowed* by private contractors! Clean as a whistle.

    And as she's also fond of saying to these clowns; "Bring It On".

    Why is the Federal Government shutting down DC garbage collection in the first place? This is local funds, paid by local taxpayers and has nothing to do with federal spending. Not only can Boehner not lead the House to an agreement on federal spending like a true leader should be able to, he can't even keep his own party from sticking their noses into local politics and telling local communities how they can spend their own money. Want government out of people's lives, yeah right! T

    In short, there is no need for Congress to stop DC garbage collection. They are doing it nonetheless, so I don't blame DC residents from fighting back.

    To set the record straight …

    "Washington, D.C., formally the District of Columbia and commonly referred to as Washington, "the District", or simply D.C., is the capital of the United States, founded on July 16, 1790. The U.S. Constitution allows for the creation of a special district to serve as the permanent national capital. The District is therefore not a part of any U.S. state and is instead directly overseen by the federal government. "

    But I still appreciate your frustration with the spending.

    "This is local funds, paid by local taxpayers and has nothing to do with federal spending. Not only can Boehner not lead the House to an agreement on federal spending.."

    Tony, exactly! Epic Connect Fail. People in Baltimore won't give a freak let alone Wyoming? Failed stunt. Nothing more.

    Btw, it wasn't John Boehner's idea to bring trash over to his house and have it dumped on his own lawn. Was it? Next thing you know Libs will be boldly declaring they'll have no other choice but to let all the criminals loose to roam the streets of DC!

    ( Oh wait, the Dims are 'already' free as a bird and out in force! ) My bad.

    Doug –
    You say ‘Lefty Facebook Page’ like a ‘Lefty’ put a page in ‘Facebook’ and the two are mutually exclusive.

    Facebook has always been pro left and has only recently become a symbiotic entity of the current Maoist WH. Of infinitely more worth than the Huffington Post and Daily Kos combined. All those with Facebook accounts are in their records data base.
    =====

    Somebody put up a page calling for trash to be dropped on Dingy Harry’s place and we’ll see what happens.

    "……the Secret Service or other security." This would be a good time for Boehner to have "some sort" of video equipped security service >

  10. Jim T. on April 8th, 2011 3:01 am

    I believe that Boehner is 2nd in line of succession…not third. 1st in line is the VP (or Sheriff) and 2nd in line is the Speaker. 3rd goes to the Senate Pro Tempore.

  11. Doug on April 8th, 2011 10:09 am

    Doh! You're right… but he's third in line of the realistic order of succession:

    TOTUS
    Obama
    Biden
    Boehner

  12. Jim T. on April 8th, 2011 10:31 am

    Of course I was referring to the way it works Constitutionally.

    Silly me…that doesn't apply to this regime.
