    Cantor is NOT a “Sancho Panza”!!

    On Progress
     
    I have dreamed thee too long
    Never seen thee or touched thee but known thee with all of my heart
    Half a prayer, half a song
    Thou hast always been with me though we have been always apart
     
    This is progress, don’t look like Congress
    I see heaven when I see thee in thy new dress
    And thy name is like a prayer an angel whispers
    Make more progress!

    Boehner made it back into a thankless job. Barely.

    Actually this would work as well for a conservative cartoonist. Mr. O gains political points by whacking the rich (who are mostly Democrats), and the trillion dollar annual deficits roll merrily along unaffected.

    Roundhead remained in use to describe those with republican tendencies up until the Exclusion Bill crisis of 1678–1681; the term was then superseded by Whig, initially another term with pejorative connotations. Likewise during Exclusion Bill crisis, the term Cavalier was replaced with Tory, a term introduced by the opponents of the Tories, and also initially a pejorative term.

    I’ve got PLENTY of “Pejorative” terms for the “rules for thee, but NOT for Me” crowd, Democrat AND Republican!

    …at least Boehner’s still a millionare and has taxpayer paid health insurance…perhaps he should consider it a victory.

    The debt ceiling represents what CONgress has already agreed to spend.
    The republicans are using it as an excuse to kill Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and any other program that benefits the 99% of Americans that are not rich.
    Don’t believe anything republicans say.

    A poem my mother taught me-
    “In days of old, when Knights were bold,
    And toilets not invented.
    Knights dropped their load, in the middle of the road,
    And went on quite contented.”
    The Knights of Congress move down the road, and we’re left with the ‘load’.
    I have seen Obama’s five main goals for this next term, and I’ve heard several republicans state their goals for the next two years, and NONE of them have used the word “JOBS”.
    Everyone runs on jobs, but after the elections, its back to social issues and obstructionism if the tribes don’t get what they want.
    George Washington warned us this would happen, so why do we allow it to continue?
    Btw- I have so far sent four emails to my 3 legislators(a total of 12 with only names changed), how are you folks doing?
    Respectfully,
    C.

    4%, .4%, what’s the diff, eh? I suspect Mr. Ima has misplaced the point. As usual.

    @Rockngolfer

    So, when we can’t pay for those programs anymore, then what?

    Read and understand the proposed fixes before you criticize them.

    You forgot to subtract the voter fraud….

    Mr. Ima would rather lie to make a point than make the same point with real numbers. Because when he’s got his own source for “facts,” they make him feel more smug.

    Could be Don Quixote, but I think the character more appropriately resembles “Orlando Furioso.”

    Refer to the great engravings by Gustave Dore.

    attn: Hippogriff. Is that where you got your user name? I’ve always wondered.

    @masterskrain

    Notice how the cowardly “Mr.” Ima did not answer your question about the “W” margins of victory, but instead attempted an insult?
    Such a dunce…
