    Actually, it’s just Boehner’s fat head stuck in the straw, and blocking the flow.

    Is this a Starbuck’s reference? I heard they were writing “Come Together” on their coffee cups, but when I went to buy and support that effort (I actually prefer 7-11 coffee) nobodly working their knew anything about it. Was it just a NYC DC event?
    This sequestration mess is that classic scene where a jumper tells people to stay away or he’ll jump. It seems both sides see more advantages to their political power than they do disadvantages to the American people. Are they going let us go over the cliff at midnight and pass legislation before noon so the President can sign it before the sun sets on Jan 1? I posted at length under Asay’s Dec 28th toon, but I do not understand how allegedly intelligent, well meaning Americans can play this dangerous and unnecessary game. It is insane.
    Beertender, can we have some bourbon in that cup? I’m too old to cry, so I’ll just go get drunk.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    This congress has been one of the biggest failures in American history. They have accomplished nothing of merit. Just tried to block everything the president has tried to do. Just think how much farther on the road to recovery we would be if the republicans had shown ANY honor at all. Just a drop.

    -
    I would say the fat head belongs to Grover Norquist, lobbyist and NRA board member.

    The 111th congress got a lot of good work done. The 112th, not so much. It is the least productive congress in history, unless you count abortion and repealing Obamacare, none of which produced a thing because the GOP refuses to work across the aisle.

    Taxes are supposed to provide government the means to provide necessary services to the people. Ideally, revenue and expenditures should balance (at least over a business cycle).

    I agree with Radish. Hope some Cons know how to read and comprehend it.

    Well put. When I was asked why I supported Gore (which I really did not want to do), I told people “I hope I’m wrong, but I noticed that Dubya had gone through $74 million in campaign funds before the Iowa caucuses. I am afraid he’ll do the same to our treasury. Also, if I’m a terrorist and I know there’s an imbecile in the White House, that’s when I will attack.” I repeated that I hoped I was wrong……

    I find your threat unsettling. How do you perceive such a revolution occurring, and how much destruction to current infrastructure and human life does your revolution require in order to make “liberals” submit to your will?
    One of your fellow conservatives said, despite the tone often set in comments, no one here really wants to see anyone killed or even hurt in order to achieve political goals. I have already see two conservative, not republican, but conservative commentators who are willing to kill people over abortion. Are you willing to kill in order to achieve YOUR American dream? What do you mean by revolution time?
    with trepidation,
    C.

    The “revolution” you speak of is little more than a psychotic fantasy. You are quite literally advocating the violent overthrow of an elected government then the brutal repression of more than half the population that would oppose you. Why is it that the “Libertarian” paradise when followed to it’s logical conclusion resembles the very Hell on Earth that you are constantly accusing others of attempting to impose upon you by wanting a functioning government.

    Thank you for your honesty, Right.
    I now know you want me and many of those for whom I care, or merely respect, dead.
    You are wrong when you say the system doesn’t work. It does work. Not as well as it should but better than in many nations. As long as we are civil and respectful, we can always turn things around after the next election cycle. You, and few other folks on this site as well as some of the other commentating sites I visit, do not want to work within the framework of what you see as a failed Constitution. Whites in 1950’s/60’s Mississippi felt the same way. They burned a bus full of jews and blacks doing the Freedom Tour, in the 60’s, and the people lighting up the bus were still in church clothes. They held the doors closed as long as they could to try and burn the passengers alive while the children of these good Baptists watched.
    Another man, convinced like you seem to be, killed four young girls with a bomb while they sat in Sunday School.
    As I read your words, I hear the words of the white men at my grandfather’s gas station talking casually about killing people for looking different, or thinking different, from them.
    Perhaps I’m taking your words out of context? I hope so.
    Your civil war will end the nation you claim you love. If it goes far enough, nations with the power to attack the US will do so. At the best, they conquer us, at worse, 10,000+ nukes cross the globe and you can tell God how you did everything for Him.
    I don’t think He’ll agree with you.
    fearfully,
    C.
