Taxes and cuts to entitlement programs that Obama had on the table months ago. Republicans were, and still are, too afraid of Grover Norquist to work out a "grand bargain" that included an increase in taxes to their wealthy masters.

Assad Jr, the dentist, is not the man his daddy was and turned the governance of Syria over to the Generals way long ago, the Generals, having milked Iran and Russia for personal gain are beginning to bail, as in left and right.
BTW 60,000 is not a big deal in the grand scheme__not even close to the damage GWB wreaked on Iraq.
Is the havoc Saddam Hussein wreaked on his own people who were discovered in mass graves and their blood stained on hooks in his torture rooms a big deal?

Just trying to get your perspective on the bigger picture. You might have to zoom out a little.

But may I also ask your perspective on the rape epidemic in India? Just curious about your views on this too.

Guess Tenzing had to leave again suddenly. Maybe he's still trying to come with an answer to my questions. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt a little while longer.

Anyway, did anyone else catch the exchange between Boehner and Reid? When Reid apparently told some bold-faced lies about Boehner and Boehner told him to "f" himself twice with witnesses to verify.

But this is the interesting part. Reid then meekly responded that he was "just reading the script they gave him to read" and one of Reid's right hand men confirmed this to be true.

Does anyone else see how funny that is? And revealing?

So, the debt the past two years belongs to Boehner.
I agree. That's why I think he should join the party he actually belongs to. Boehner is a Democrat. You'd know that if you actually follow events in Congress.
If you were paying any attention, he and Nancy Pelosi cut a deal for him to force the 112th Congress to vote him in as Speaker for the 113th Congress, which he did in mid-November. That got shoved up his ass yesterday. He barely kept enough votes to keep his position as Speaker.
It's obvious to everyone Boehner is a Democrat. It became obvious the first time the debt ceiling had to be raised, and he forced it through without any spending cuts.
And, what just happened?

Well, where's the money going to come from to pay for Obama's government?

so go to a gun shop.
Good__there is no reason for gun shows which allow gun dealers to move sales away from their stores.

Car dealers have off premise sales but don't invite personal sellers and buyers to participate, same with boat dealers and such.

It's a gun thing and one which draws in second amendment nutjobs such as those found on topix and other bullsht anonymous forums.
