    Thomas Crawford’s statue on the Captial Dome, once called “Freedom Triumphant in War and Peace” is now simply called “Freedom”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Freedom_1.jpg
    The man with whom Mr. Morin has replaced that iconic image does have Freedom of Speech. He is allowed to make faces and yell insults and even twist the truth from his pedestal, a pedestal vilely stained by his conduct. It is good that Mr. Morin has not identified this scornful figure as of one political party or the other. The place at which we’ve arrived is a road paved by the incompetence and self interest of both of our political parties and it is only fair, no matter who one wishes to blame for the current pain inflicting our nation, that both share the responsibility. It is only by their recognition that both have done harm and both have hardened the hearts of the other side that both can make the decision to compromise. But as long as this tribal-esque attitude of “Hutu vs. the Tutsi” keeps these people on a road of self destruction, the USA will continue to divide and weaken. If that should occur, then all of the sacrifices of those we call our nation’s heroes, the losses of our ‘Greatest Generations’, and the brilliance of minds that went to the moon and sent a spacecraft beyond the edge of our solar system will be lost. And why?
    The only answer I see to that question is money and power
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Nicely quoted, Narrowminded.
    I’m so pleased to see you using quotes and no insults or flames that I will refrain from offering countering quotes. I wonder what a conversation would be like were you and I to have a chance to sit across from one another.
    This comment of yours gives me hope it could go well.
    Sincerely,
    Your neighbor and fellow citizen,

    I wonder at what point the first GOP Rep will say an official “Nener, Nener!!!” into a Faux News camera…

    Gerrymandering has created situations like Pennsylvania’s. Obama won 52 percent of the 2012 vote state-wide but the House delegation has 13 Republicans and 5 Democrats. How’s that working out for the Country? How’s about non-partisan commissions draw up the voting districts, eh? Isn’t it about time democracy meant what the Constitution says? How’s about every eligible citizen is REQUIRED to vote in districts that are determined by nonpartisan committees? How’s about it? Are we going to have a democracy or a government by the few, the connected and the monied?

    @Tigger

    “All the Democrats and Obama need to do is agree…” To the hostage demands of the republican party.
    Tigger, you are a liar. This issue has been addressed several times and you refuse to learn the truth. And if you bothered to seek news, information, truth and facts from any non-right-wing propaganda site you would know this meme is much ado about absolutely nothing. The Democrats want to fund the entire government.
    Read here from at CNN Politics regarding the very interview you and your partisan propaganda masters take your out-of-context quote from,
    “When I raised that issue and others did, Senator Cruz decided to put the NIH on his bucket list of agencies that he was willing to save,” Durbin said earlier in the press conference. “Well, it shouldn’t stop there. He ought to ultimately open up the government, because there are so many agencies critically important to our country that are closed down today for no earthy reason.”

    I offer substantiation and sources, or a “valid link” if you will, what about you? You demand it of others…

    @ansonia

    Only in your sick and twisted mind did Reid ever say who would want to fund cancer research for children. Did you ever read the whole interaction or even know anything about the issue at hand? The republicans did not want to fund the NIH, it wasn’t until they were challenged, reportedly by Sen. Dick Durbin Rafael “Ted” Cruz decided to put the NIH on his list of agencies that he was willing to fund. And as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid asked Dana Bash, “What right do they have to pick and choose which part of government is going to be funded? It’s obvious what’s going on here. You talk about reckless and irresponsible, wow,” My link did not prove tigger was right, your reading comprehension skills are severely lacking, just like your integrity.

    I do not owe anyone an apology, if you had the intelligence and integrity you wish everyone thought you had, you would see it is very simple, the republicans are trying to shut down the parts of the government they don’t like by only agreeing to fund the parts they like. And because the Democrats refuse to play the a la carté losing game the republicans are demanding. It is real simple, if Bohner served the country, as Speaker he is not serving just his constituents, the HoR would pass a clean CR without any unrelated partisan games. But he won’t do the honorable thing and allow the majority of the country determine its own destiny. Instead he is allowing as little as 11% of the country to control the rest and he allows the minority to demand the majority to acquiesce.

    @ansonia

    The only reason NIH funding was included was because Sen. Dick Durbin successfully embarrassed the republican standard bearer Cruz into including it . He saw the political advantage to including it so he did. Not because funding the government was the right thing to do, but to score political points with his weak-minded minions. The Democrats don’t refuse to fund the government, instead they insist on funding ALL of the government, not just the parts they like, unlike the what the republicans are pulling. I only wish you could admit to the whole story, not just the half-truth that fits your meme.
    To reiterate what Reid meant, the whole government should be funded, research for children, adults, repair and reconstruction of roads and bridges, education of children, sanitary and safety inspections of food processing and drug manufacturing plants as well as the military. To the contrary the republicans are trying to end run the last election and fund only the parts they like. But because you want to take the question (“But if you can help one child, why won’t you do it? “) and answer to the literal extreme, answer this question, “Which ONE?”
    I keep asking this question, but no republican/CONservatroll has had the courage to answer. Do you?

    @TheTrustedMechanic

    Friend, I salute you with persevering (with logic and facts) against Ansonia’s rants. I’ve come to the conclusion that he/she cannot accept empirical evidence or logic in place of rigid dogma. For some people, their inner rage makes it impossible for them to change their mind. I know some of them personally, and one cannot reason with them. Regardless, thank you for trying. I believe in the intrinsic goodness of people (yeah, one of those liberals), but I used to be a Republican until finding first hand how warped their policies are. Finding compromise with conservative policies and outlooks is one thing, but it takes a lot of patience to cope with ignorance and blind rage.

    Since the Republicans think it’s okay to fund just the parts of the government they like, I think I’ll pay taxes just for the parts that I like.
