    In later years, they would use a system of tiles, rather than a single ablative shield.
    Trouble would arise when some of the tiles fell away from the party platform, leaving the shuttle vulnerable to burn-up on re-entry.
    The resulting Columbia shuttle disaster, officially designated as STS-107, took place on February 1st of 2003, when TEA Party members failed to form a unified front with Boehner’s establishment positions, nearly ending the program to place governmental authorities above The People.

    Too bad Obama won’t take the blame for anything….

    Anyone notice that election hype doesn’t label the candidate’s political affiliation? Clever as most foljs vote straight ticket. Sad, sad, pathetic.

    I don’t doubt that next election will be the Democrats to lose even with their stratospheric level of ineptitude, they’ve had the media mostly on their side and coupled with the purchasing of votes via increased public assistance roles Republicans have an uphill battle.
    .
    If the Republicans can drop the abortion and gay marriage issue and focus on the families that are hurting because of the Democrats and the furher, they may stand a chance, but I won’t hold my breath.

    The lack of facts and reliable information is explanation of why readers dismiss most of what is written in these postings.
    Unfortunately, many seniors are worried more about the state of their retirement than the state of the country that they believe many of the misleading stories and comments from “conservative” talking heads and disembodies voices.

    If you hired someone to run your company and they had the lowest production rate in history and then shut down the company, what would you do when their contract was up for renewal at the end of two years?

    Denis again proves the ‘toon is correct. His arguments, like theirs, are purchased at “Pottery Barn”, because they’re a crock.

    Perhaps your heart is really in the right place, but that was NOT a very good analogy!!

    Well, here is at least one senior that does NOT depend upon the likes of Rush Limbaugh for any information. And if the Republicans continue to support the tea party and the likes of Paul Ryan and his threats to social security, they are just so much horse pucky to me!!

    Republican whining has increased with global warming.

    @Robert Landers

    It was an EXCELLENT analogy! All the heat is going to Obama now, and to the Republicans in the House of Representatives so that the Democrat Senate can hold themselves as separate and above the people in their superior benevolence, demanding only that the economy be further harmed to provide increasingly useless currencies to the underprivileged, made more so by the harm to the economy. The harm is done and Obama cannot be re-elected in any case and so is a perfect candidate for the Democrat ablative shield to prevent the ongoing party puppet show spam in a can program from being harmed by the positions in which they have placed themselves. Sure, you have to stretch it a bit, but that’s how you get it to be form-fitting.

    “It is always easier to snipe than produce something. That, seems to be the Republicans only accomplishment.”
    They could learn from Obama and understand that it is all Bush’s fault and the problems are all inherited from the previous Emperor and the current Emperor is a benevolent and caring champion of the people. Yeah…. that sounds great.

    @BrassOrchid

    You still do not get it, do you? Using the Columbia shuttle tragedy as a ploy for political opinions is purely despicable!! Even if I agreed with your general position (which I don’t) as a former retired aerospace worker, that is how I felt about your post. Have I now made myself more cleat here??

    DLee: American corporate history of the 80’s and 90’s would say you give them millions in bonuses, and a golden parachute for life.

    @Robert Landers

    A political ploy? Oh, no. Not at all. A foreshadowing and a preface to the existing House of Representatives disaster. As a former Aerospace worker, you might consider that the echoes of any significant event may resonate in current events for as long as they are remembered. The loss of a few party members is exactly like the loss of a few heat shielding tiles, where a unified front is required to prevent the sort of catastrophic failure we saw in 2003 and which lives on in the daily tragedies of the modern day. Perhaps it is only politics which is despicable, and not my observation of the similarities between the use of throw-away politicians as ablative shields to take the heat for the ongoing plunge into an inescapable well of the surly bonds of the central authority of an oppressive government, from which we would emerge if only we could. But the personal attack was a nice touch, identifying you as a probable liberal Democrat.
