    The right wing has made it predictable.

    He’s obviously putting the box back in the attic. The Republican leadership has whipped enough Republicans to get the budget bill passed, with the anti-ACA bits safely deleted.


    Cruz is running an old-fashioned Jimmy-Stewart-Senator-Smith filibuster because he can’t get even 40 senators to vote to keep the anti-ACA bits in the budget, so they’ll vote for cloture later today, and the House will pass the senate version before the end of the month.

    And the Utah National Guard will not send the agreed upon road building help to Colorado because of the impending shut down. Winter is coming.

    @Michael wme

    I would like to think you are right, Michael, but I think he is taking it back downstairs. Even if the shutdown is avoided, the bill to be passed will be another stop gap measure with no long term results that CEOs say they need in order to make decisions on hiring, investments, and innovation. It does not address the sequester or any other of the financial threats our legislator is inflicting on our economy.
    The man in the cartoon may bring down his Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Cmas boxes, but he won’t add much to them. He’ll be too concerned on what may happen to his money, his job, and his healthcare.
    I always enjoy reading your WME, Words of Mass Enlightenment

    You know, it’s not such a bad idea! Have some decorations you can hang outside your house when you’re fed up with politicians, as a class, again. Have some red tape. Have some tea-bags. Have a donkey and an elephant on the lawn. Have some giant stacks of paper for laws nobody can understand. Play the Cruz Fauxbuster in full length through a speaker. Call it “Political Posturing Non Appreciation Day” (PPNAP).

    Ironically, the unemployed have the day off at the same rate they were paid yesterday.
    Go GOP Jobs bill!

    Rick Santelli on CNBC this morning ran a series of video clips and quotes from 2006 and 2008. It was the perfect example of the hypocrisy of our congress and current president. Clips from Obama, Harry Ried, and Nancy Pelosi were all condemning the Repub. admin. for their proposal to raise the debt ceiling. On the opposite side of that discussion was a lineup of Repub. congressmen emphatically pushing the necessity of raising the debt limit.


    IMO it is the greatest insult to the American people that they expect us to accept this hypocrisy as if we are incapable of remembering the recent past and blithely accepting their current simplistic rationalizations, i.e. “things are different now.”


    My question to the contributors to this board is, what position and political platform were you supporting in 2006 and 2008?.Are you on the opposite side of this debt ceiling discussion (and others) “just because” of your political affiliation or are you as lacking in principals as our legislators? This is an inane and ridiculous example of the detached population in Washington, the inflexible duopoly that controls the government.


    The attached link is to a Libertarian writer named Bill Freeza. It’s long but I think does a good job of illuminating the absurdity of our political situation today. Thanks for letting me share.

    Excellent comment, Mickey!
    It seems that on nearly every issue, the party in the minority complains loudly and vehemently of the party who is in power using it. Yet as soon as the minority becomes the ‘majority’, they use the same tools and tactics used by those who preceded them. And with each new election, these tactics are refined and made more insidious.
    In 2006 and 2008 I wanted the same thing I want now. An audit of every business, financial institution, gov’t agency and NGO that receives tax dollars. I want the myriad committees in Congress to do their jobs and instead of talking to lobbyists who make donations, talk to experts, efficiency professionals, and people whose expertise over whom the committees sit and use the best practices to set policy. I want states to be given wider ability to be the ‘experimental laboratories’ to find the best ways of keeping people employed, educated, healthy, and free.
    I can continue, but that will suffice.
    It is really good to see you in the forum, neighbor, and thank you for the links.
    Sincerely,
    C.

    …Rand Paul is Koch brother idiot…he believes in unicorns but not globel warming…he believes he’s a Christian but forgoes helping the poor…he says he won’t negotiate and then curses Obama because he says the president won’t negotiate…he -like some of his Muslim heroes-believes that being raped is a greater sin than being a rapist…Paul is one creepy fellow..it’s like the FOX is in charge of the hen house…The Republicans can not lead,so the mis~lead…

    It’s truly amazing that every time the right-wing radicals do something truly, truly, and totally stupid, they try to blame it on the Democrats, or just “libs”. There are still quite a number of “blue dogs” in the House, but only two of them would go along with the TEA pots last time out..


    It truly is a shame the few remaining REAL Republicans, are the ones being called “RiNO”, when it’s the TEA pots that have lost touch.
