ha ha: Have a laff about some loose nukes

Speakin' as someone who was actually around back in 1961, I'm feeling "a little" more grateful (now) that a (large) number of us got to see 1962, and beyond:

This is supposed to be a humor blog, so let's all force ourselves to (mis-)perceive the following as unbelievably twisted, "dark" humor....!
...Courtesy of a few of your more obnoxious fellow Americans:

Topic 'o the week: "Government" by/through extortion (via a cadre of reactionary dupes/zealots).
Or: The funny thing that's about to happen to your social security check (etc.)...  Off-site link to 9/18/13 news story. New window opens. No affiliation: http://swampland.time.com/2013/09/18/the-final-showdown-why-the-coming-budget-crisis-may-be-the-worst/?

Topic 'o the weeks (ad nauseam)Miley (A/k/a "What th'...? Where's the talent??") Cyrus. 
Many parents - incl. older women (and men) who (years ago) fought for increased freedoms, which Miley/(some of) Miley's admirers enjoy/exploit/turnabout -- surely must be amused:
