    Ok, now the strip has jumped the shark. How come no storylines on the shutdown?

    Comics are written weeks in advance.

    Not even a coyote would eat something as toxic as the Kevins.

    To SWR from the other day. Yes, I know that the senate not the president passes the budget. I am sorry; I assumed that everyone’s comprehension level was to the point that when I said that obama is the first President to not pass a budget they knew that I meant that obama was the first President not able to get together with his staff, write a budget and have a member of the Senate present it to the Senate and have it passed with or without some modifications. My point was that the two budgets that he did submit were so bad that not even one democrat voted for them. The lack of a budget, not obamacare, not the Republicans is what is causing us to have to raise the debt ceiling every few months. This is what is causing the shutdown, the fact that nothing is funded. This is actually a brilliant ploy by obama. If he had a budget to go by the American people would see what he is spending their money on. This way he can spend money on what he wants with no accountability. If the Republicans try to stop the runaway spending he goes to the press and says the Republicans are trying to starve babies. The amazing thing is no member of the press has asked him “Mr. President, why hasn’t the democrat controlled Senate passed a budget since you have been in office”?

    Since the budget has to be reconciled between the House and Senate before it is sent to the President should explain why one has never been sent.

    That’s expecting too much from the children in Washington!

    @Night-Gaunt49

    Actually that is not correct but lets go with your logic. Then explain why no budget was passed his first two years when he controlled the house and senate.

    @fbjsr

    But that is a fallacy. With the unnecessary need for a super majority he only had control of the Senate for 2 months.

    " To SWR from the other day. Yes, I know that the senate not the president passes the budget.

    Absolutely false and misleading. I reiterate from the Constitution the budget process should begin in the House, be hashed out with the Senate, and then sent to the President for approval or veto.

    The idea of a President having budget authority began in 1921, as a power grab by the Executive, and if legal would require the Executive to submit a wish list to the House and Senate, as a guideline to Congress that attempted to place a Presidential imprimatur on the budget process. No President submitted a comprehensive wish list prior to 1921, so your statement Obama was the first President never to submit a budget is demonstrably false and displays a lack of knowledge of the budget process. I have found two pages that place the onus on the President, one is Congressman Paul Ryan, and the other is Wikipedia, whose first line states this page has multiple issues. It seems that a minority aspires to be the Ministry of Truth, be rewriting Wikipedia. Given the number of challenges, and researching the C.V.s of the debarred, it seems poorly educated people oppose the facts. I have a copy of the Constitution, The Federalist Papers, and other documents within no more than 30 feet away, and often on or in my nightstand.

    Then when Nixon was fighting impeachment in 1974, Congress made a power grab, and passed the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Act of 1974, unconstitutionally demanding the President be the fall-guy for Congress. " The president’s budget proposal serves as a “starting point” for the Congress to consider. Congress is under no obligation to adopt all or any of the President’s budget and often makes significant changes.". (citation:

    You greatly overestimate your understanding of the budget making procedures and history.

    Intellectually and Knowledgeably, you are in far over your head. You have no business criticizing anyone, based on your posts.

    But I do recognise the propandists you parrot.

    Have you forgotten Ted Cruz sort of filibustered against the Senate budget proposal for 17 or 21 hours, then sat down and approved the Senate Budget Proposal, where it passed when a 100% approval.

    Please, turn off all media, ignore all armchair quarterbacks, and seek out original sources. Rush Limbaugh is a comedian, but he has a following, and has spawned an entire class of professional whiners and calumny artists.

    @swr: When I first went to Washington DC I was assigned to the Office of Management and Budget. Before that position, and for about three years into it, I was active in my Fraternity Brother Woody Jenkins’ organization working for his Friend’s of the Americas, which I thought was a toys for Central American tots. After the office down there was bombed while I was bringing boxes and boxes of toys and stuff, I began reconsidering my career path.

    I devoted time to academia through the Consortium while recuperating, and began consulting in what I then called Quantitative Research Analysis and Financial Futures Forecasting.

    I nearly self destructed by pointing out glaring flaws in Alan Greenspan’s modelling techniques at a seminar at GWU, and frequently did laundry with Chairman Volcker Thursday nights at the Commodore condos, and visited with him and tried to help him understand Quantitative Research and why Greenspan was off the rails and his bridge was out at some point down the line.

    I then became an independent contract consultant for Jean-Michel Camdessus, Managing Director of the IMF, and the trust department of Riggs Bank, among other clients.

    fbjsr: You are out of your depth so badly, another contributor I rarely agree with is a learned wise man, and you seem to be a blind fool with little comprehension of economics, government, history and the Constitution of the USA’s primacy over all USA laws and treaties.

    You are entitled to your own opinions, but not your own facts. Given the advances in communication technology, I hope we can put to rest the maxim that " a lie repeated often enough and loud enough will cause people to believe it is the truth.

    Sincerely,

    JusSayin
