    I think you are seeing the beginning of a new era in government. A government that will, by necessity, have to become smaller because a minority group in either house will not have to be trampled by the majority.

    The government is out of borrowing capability and without both houses of congress agreeing to a raise there will be a default.

    This is actually a good thing because for a long time the majority (those that don’t make enough to support themselves and their famiies) have been tyranizing the minority (those of us who voluntarily live within our means) by taxing away our earnings in the name of fairness.

    The Tea Party is saying – “NO MORE!!!”

    They won’t allow this to continue without some concessions and I for one think they are heros!!!

    I don’t think the government should be in the Robin Hood business and think any impediments put in place to stop that activity are a good thing.

    Dictator Obama continues to piss and moan about how it’s all the Republicans’ fault but it really comes down to a lack of leadership on his part. He didn’t get involved in the negotiations when he had the chance and when they broke down he felt he could just blame the Republicans. I think history has shown us that the majority of Americans agree with his opinion but again I take you back to the way our government was set up. It was intentionally designed to keep the majority from trampling on the rights of the minority.

    ^ & ^^ What a strange country; some of its countrymen want it run into the ground to prove they’re right.


    Just for spite, to prove their extreme partisanship is justified.
    I’d be laughing loudly but unfortunately, your woes are our colds. Perhaps the two Tea Partiers above are correct: the sooner your country becomes a 2-bit backwater, the sooner the rest of the world is less dependant on trade with your large market. There’s always the Chinese. And Brazil. And India.

    We have to pay our bills but not by borrowing money from China. The U.S. has to stop spending like a drunken sailor. No ofence to any drunken sailors here.

    @omQ R – I think you misunderstand. I have no desire to see America become less of a Superpower. I’m trying to save it from the Parasites and the Loafers that feel they are entitled to the fruits of another’s labors simply because they were born into the greatest country in the world.

    Atlas is shrugging and those that refuse to think and work will find themselves in an uncomfortable position indeed.

    @Mephistopholes

    You are correct, the majority should not be able to trample on the minority. “Dictator Obama” is asked to just accept the dictates of a minority. How is it that he’s a dictator when a minority is stopping progress in our country? How is it this minority gets to chose what is good for America or bad for America?
    What democratic principal are they following?
    Destruction of our, much less the worlds, economy in an obviously ill thought out stunt showing a total disregard for reasonable thinking.

    said, “…”I have no desire to see America become less of a Superpower.


    I don’t really care about the “Superpower” status, in fact, it’s become more a Superannoyance the way it throws its weight around.


    Mephistopholes bloviated further, “…simply because they were born into the greatest country in the world.”


    Oh, you’re Norwegian? From your 1st statements I thought you were …nevermind me, my mistake.
    I dunno, I think you’re wrong there, I heard that Norwegians are a fair minded egalitarian bunch of people. You don’t sound very fair minded.


    I just finished a 2nd reading of Fountainhead, 30 years after I had 1st read it, and, ohmyword, it pained me. I have ‘Atlas Shrugged’ on reserve at my local library but …I don’t think I can stand the torture.

    There will never be any agreement between fence posts and blocks of concrete..
    But, I, for one believe that government can shrink – a little.
    Better people are required for this….and, it may not be the way to go…

    And I agree with omQ R , I’d sooner read Victor Hugo….Ayn Rand is so deep that she may be shallow….

    @ODon – That is my point. Up until now Mr. Obama thought that he could just dictate his whims and he was beyond control. The Republicans in the house have shown him that he will have to negotiate or he won’t get very far. Which I think was the intent of the original founding fathers.

    The governement was set up to have two distinct houses and each gets to have a say in the government. The senate (Harry Reid) doesn’t get a voice in the house unless they come together to negotiate and Harry Reid has said he won’t negotiate. So here we sit going nowhere because Harry Reid feels that he doesn’t have to budge and the House will have to. I guess we will find out whether he is right or not.

    I think there will be hard times ahead if the two parts of congress don’t come together on an agreeement but there will be hard times ahead anyway for people like me who are forced to pay taxes that are then redistributed to those who don’t.

    The Teaparty wants the rest of you to feel the pain as well.

    What part of democracy are you following that you feel the Democrats should be able to reach into the pockets of the productive to pay the indolent?

    @omQ R – Don’t read Atlas shrugged if you don’t enjoy it. It’s a work of fiction and as such designed to educate, inform and entertain.

    I happen to enjoy both the writing style and the subject matter.
    I think you have seen Atlas shrugging for the last 10 or 20 years. Those that are willing to think and work are still doing OK in this economy. It is those that depend on handouts that are findning their environment much less hospitiable.
