    Well, since the Democrat leader in Congress doesn’t seem to care about kids with cancer and the prez wants to block WWII Vets from visiting THEIR memorial, I’m not surprised people are fighting back.

    Remember it was the GOP who started this, and they who cut funds off from the Park Service and stopped the paychecks of 1,800,000 Americans. Including the policeman who was knocked over at the White House yesterday, who was working for IOUs yesterday.

    If you don’t like a law duly enacted, which you have been unable to repeal in four years, and which has been vetted by the Supreme Court, the only way to do it is to win elections. Ours is a Constitutional Republic, and thems the rules. Anyone who has any respect for the Constitution has to support the president in this.


    “What is our present condition? We have just carried an election on principles fairly stated to the people. Now we are told in advance, the government shall be broken up, unless we surrender to those we have beaten, before we take the offices. In this they are either attempting to play upon us, or they are in dead earnest. Either way, if we surrender, it is the end of us, and of the government. They will repeat the experiment upon us ad libitum.” – Abraham Lincoln, 1861.

    Good one. And very appropriate quotation, especially since the opposition is composed of the political heirs to the same white, racist, privileged opponents to Lincoln.

    We, as voters, need to vet those we elect a lot more closely to avoid having radical elements of either party designated as our representatives in Congress.

    Interesting that the right likes to use the term “community organizer” as a term of abuse. I guess they prefer disorganized communities: they are much easier to prey upon.


    As for the rest, I am afraid Zipi (the same as “Zippy the Pinhead”?) really doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He really should try to pay attention.

    Even if kids can’t get cancer treatments. How compassionate of you.

    Ok you have a point but the spending one way or another will stop, either by us or the world will start charging more interest, then stop all together.

    “I’ve got your children lined up here. I’ll only shoot a couple of them. I’ll spare these two if you give me permission to shoot the others.”



    Extortion, pure and simple.



    Do you think the President should make deals with terrorists when they hold the country hostage. Agree to allow them to destroy part of it, so they can get their permission to save some of it?


    I used to think that Republican Party served a good purpose, to check the excesses of the Democrats. Now they have become a conspiracy against the nation, and while I once was willing to vote for moderate, reasonable, rational Republicans, after this, I can’t even forgive those who do.

    Re DNFTT

    It’d be nice to have a “Troll” button, similar to a Flag. Trolls are those who splash short, unsupported, outrageous sentences just to be obnoxious and stir up vitriol. Debatable about what kind of functionality would be attributed to the Troll button, however.

    “the president himself has never shown any respect for the Constitution…”


    Too bad you can’t name one."


    (This is where you go to the fixed news website to pick up your talking points, like Obamacare, which was deemed constitutional by the supreme court btw)

    “We, as voters, need to vet those we elect a lot more closely to avoid having radical elements of either party designated as our representatives in Congress.”
    I totally agree. But how do you get fellow voters to pay attention to what is going on. Most I know are more familiar with football teams and only think about how government effects them when it smacks them directly.
