    Funny how all these lefty cartoonist seem to “forget” their team controls the Senate and the White House who refuse to negotiate on anything.

    this is nuts….syria even if their strife and problems are still paying the bills and workers’ wages. but, we can’t because the gop has no control over their party, and their media arm will not even entertain the idea of being wrong.

    “About Nick Anderson
    Nick Anderson of the Houston Chronicle is an avowed independent”

    Independent? Looking at the volume of his work he is almost as far left as they come.

    It just goes to show you how blinded they are in their ridged ideology.

    Do the people in your state have to buy auto insurance in order to drive on the highways of your state? They do in mine, and nobody seems to be complaining here about that lack of freedom!!

    Being a ‘pro’ gives you the right to start name calling again? Moderators don’t seem to notice.

    Funny how rightie commentors forget that the House proposed an all Republican budget and wants to add defunding of a constitutionally tested law as part of their “negotiation.”

    Pretty much… But then the Left pretty much has a one track mind and this time it leads straight to a huge train wreck….

    “yeah there are only 30 of us”

    Just being nit picky here, David, but if you’re talking tea party caucus types, there are 49.

    The freedom to throw a temper tantrum when you cant’ have your way after losing the vote (it became a law), the election (Obama was reelected), and the court case (despite GOP lies, it is Constitutional).

    @Robert Landers

    First, I don’t have to pay for auto insurance if I don’t have a car or a license. If ACA applied to drivers, I would. (The argument that driving doesn’t strike like illness is another issue.) Second, here in Illinois we actually got something right: you can be a self-insured driver (you have to be able to prove it) and you don’t get fined if you don’t buy insurance. Third, I am no scholar on these matters, but no other scenario comes to mind wherein citizens are required to pay for something that directly enriches private businesses; must then also pay fees and costs to those corporations; and then are taxed by the government if they opt out. I think it is obscene that we have the ability to save lives but are prevented by monetary concerns. But I also am not willing to roll over for such an ill-conceived solution as the ACA. The constant focus on self by the “I…I…I” president who rammed this through doesn’t help.

    @Robert Landers

    Robert, are you comparing the right to live with the privilege of driving? If they were somehow equivalent, you’d need to pass a written test and a skills test before leaving your parents home, and your license to live could easily be revoked for any combination of minor offenses. Is that how you think it should be?
    Don’t like that analogy? OK, you decide for the rest of us just how much government intrusion we must endure. No matter how much, it will soon be exceeded. That’s the nature of government.
    It is not just the right, but the duty of free people to deny any attempt at restricting our freedom. One day they may come for a freedom you hold dear. If that happens, you will not feel the same.

    I agree with much of what you say. However, I think it is unfair to blame “those people” for taking away your money. While I recognize that there are way too many free-loading individuals in our society, we must also recognize that corporate welfare creates at least as much waste, and certainly more income inequality, than welfare cheats.

    Tens of billions to oil companies in subsidies, allowing agribusiness to have their cows graze on federal land for far less cost than smaller farms must spend, building tanks that no one wants, just to buy votes from a firm that is based in Ohio….all of these and more create a heavy burden on the economy. Blaming only poor people ignores a large portion of the problem.

    Both sides have their “takers” lining up at the trough. Both sides protect their takers. So, I will paraphrase: I think Harry Reid, Obama, Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi, and their cadre of takers need to come to the table with some concessions or we are headed for a global recession.

    I’m glad we are both prepared, because I do not see any one of them being willing to do anything different.

    Hey, ConserveGov? That word, “negotiate”, and the other one, “compromise”: I don’t think they mean what you think they mean.

    @David – The Cylon I use as an Avatar is Lucifer and he was hardly emotionless. He was ambitious and that takes emotion.

    He was also part of my play on harmless Devils.

    Mephistofoles (to spell correctly) had no power unless you gave it to him. You had to be willing to voluntarily sign over your soul in exchange for something you valued more.

    Lucifer was ambitious but also imcompetent. Many of his schemes didn’t work.

    You are welcome to your opinion but I am fondly reminded of that truism: “Those who are Conservatives before 30 are heartless and those who are Liberals after 40 are brainless.” I’m past 40 thank you very much.
