    As an amateur artist with formal architectural training (back before CAD), Sargent’s drawings are magnificent. Not commenting on the political content here, just objective appreciation.

    The votes are ALREADY there. The shutdown is because Boehner refuses to put the"Clean" bill in front of the House. When he does, it will be over: the government is refunded, everything starts up again. Obamacare is the law of the land; Boehner is deliberately blocking the vote that is already waiting to take place.

    It’s a union, so he should be against it.

    The Wolf In Your Midst: In the late 1950s, I had a sociology professor who was just coming of sabbatical where he studied the American Medical Association. He described it as “the most ruthless and corrupt labor union in the country, Hoffa included.” While the concept of unions is good, an individual union, from local to international, can be good, bad, or some stage in between.

    Because only Republicans and the average American has to obey the law. The Elitists on the Progressive Left get to act like royality or dictators do and flaunt any and every law however they like….

    The more the TEA piddlers carry on, the more difficult it becomes to describe them in anything resembling “polite language” or anything remotely descriptive of sanity

    Hmmmmmm, Bachman has now come out essentially admitting she’s been bin Laden’s concubine! He couldn’t bring down our government, but SHE’s proud of it? And her buddies go along? Maybe it IS too early to close Guantanamo, we’ve got a bunch of Republicans that need “accommodation”.

    So, is that an affiliate of the AFL-CIO or the Teamsters? Or, maybe they affiliate with the American Bar Association….

    Are liberals aware there is a law on the books that the US will fund and build a fence along the border of Mexico? But Democrats defunded it. BUT IT’S THE LAW! IT WAS APPROVED BY BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT SIGNED IT! Freakin’ hypocrites!

    The Democrats had to wait until THEY WON ENOUGH ELECTIONS to pass a bill defunding the fence. They did not refuse to pass a budget. They did not refuse to raise the debt ceiling when they were trying (unsuccessfully) to defund the Iraq war. No hypocrisy there.

    The GOP recipe for success is simple: let the ACA go forward. The disaster will allow them to sweep the mid-terms & gain the super-majorities they need to override Obama’s veto.

    Of course, if it turns out the polls are right & that most Americans want the ACA tweaked, not delayed, not defunded, not repealed… they’re screwed either way.

    BTW, the fence was a big, fat pork barrel project. A fence is useless against anyone with a $4.99 pair of wire cutters. The cost of deploying enough troops to ‘guard’ the border would run into many billions. 1,000 National Guards cost about $100 million a year. Take a guess at how many guards would need to be deployed to really secure the 2,000 mile border. Then guess how many people would cross the border legally, then stay illegally.

    Do us a favor: stop pretending to be a fiscal conservative.
