    Actually, that’s not quite right. The 112th "Con"gress has done nothing BUT suck!

    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,

    I would like to extend my deepest sympathy for the American people. You will probably go through a rough time, but it might be the medicine you need to cure the chronic illness you have (living larger than you can/should).

    When Bush announced his tax-cuts in 2001 and explained that the Clinton-years had produced “unnecessary surplus” I very nearly got a concussion when my head hit the keyboard. That is a phrase never uttered before by any statesman of any country in the history of time! I knew back then that this would not end well, that someone messed up the math.

    And then came 9/11. We all knew, even while the towers were still smoking, how the U.S. would react to that. Pearl Harbor led to Hiroshima, so the world is basically lucky that the U.S. didn’t actually kill every last man, woman and child they deemed a “risk”. But the financial impacts – boy oh boy! And then, in 2003, came the SECOND round of tax cuts AND the phony war in Iraq! WTF??? What geniuses voted for that and forgot the raise the taxes in order to pay for it?

    -

    And THEN came the crash of 07/08. Don’t you find it a bit suspicious that the housing market and the wider economy just “happened” to crash at the end of GWB’s term, when everybody knew that the next president would be a Democrat? Lord Voldemort could have run and would have gotten the nod as long as there were a (D) behind his name!

    Your politicians brought all that to you. In 2014, when standing in the voting booth, please remember the complete history of the current situation and show the “Taxed Enough Already” party that math and science are circumvented at your own peril!

    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.

    @MortyForTyrant

    The only problem is the fact that Lord Voldemort is a registered Republican.
    Other then that, you nailed it!
    Of course, you have to remember that from 2000-2008, we had a Muppet in the White House.
    Darth Cheney’s “Undisclosed Location” during that time was under shrub’s chair with his hand up his ass working his mouth!

    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 British put Churchhill out of power as soon as the war was over.
