Hope and change...

and football...

"The U.S. Air Force Academy football team has played the Naval Academy every year since 1972. In 1976, when a government shutdown was caused by a Democratic-controlled Congress and a Republican was in the White House, the game was played.

Not this year."

Like we don't know that game.
Democrats already voted to fund al of that without any non budget riders.
Why should they have to vote again?
The Senate already voted down the Republican bill.
Boehner won't put the Senate bill to vote because he knows that Democrats & sensible, non fuckhead Republicans would pass it.
So, what you're saying is, there's no difference between Harry Reid and Boehner, right? We already know that. Boehner is a Democrat wearing a RINO costume.

Harry Reid has a set of bills on his desk to start the government again. All Harry Reid has to do is put those bills on the Senate floor for a vote.

Why does Harry Reid and all the Democrats in DC want the government to stay shut down?

Obamacare has little effect on business.
Let me repeat this for you dumbasses out there.
96% of all business have less than50 employees & would not be effected.
Of those with 50 or more, only 0.2% do not offer insurance & would be forced to offer insurance by Obamacare.
You people are being duped once again by the lies from Republicans.
Just how GD stupid are you people?
It really sounds like you think there is a conspiracy among all these companies.
So, tell us why this multitude of companies across the entire country are cutting FT positions and replacing them with PT positions. The only associated change is ObamaKare.
It seems you are promoting the idea that all of these companies are involved in a conspiracy to make Obama look bad.

You're not one of those conspiracy nuts, are you?

A man who attempted to sign up claims he was threatened with driver’s license being revoked, federal tax lien on home. A man who attempted to sign up for Obamacare online was told that a fine of over $4,000 dollars a year for refusing to take out mandatory health insurance could be taken directly from his bank account, and that his driver’s license would be suspended and a federal tax lien placed against his home, according to an entry on the HealthCare.gov Facebook page.

See this is how dictators operate. Do democrats actually think they will not be treated the same way?

Ted Cruz blasted by angry GOP colleagues

Ted Cruz faced a barrage of hostile questions Wednesday from angry GOP senators, who lashed the Texas tea party freshman for helping prompt a government shutdown crisis without a strategy to end it.

At a closed-door lunch meeting in the Senate’s Mansfield Room, Republican after Republican pressed Cruz to explain how he would propose to end the bitter budget impasse with Democrats, according to senators who attended the meeting. A defensive Cruz had no clear plan to force an end to the shutdown — or explain how he would defund Obamacare, as he has demanded all along, sources said.

....as the government shutdown heads into day three, a number of Republican senators privately blame the Texas freshman for contributing to the mess their party finds itself in. And now that they’re in it, they say it’s up to Cruz to help find a solution.

“It was very evident to everyone in the room that Cruz doesn’t have a strategy – he never had a strategy, and could never answer a question about what the end-game was,” said one senator who attended the meeting.“I just wish the 35 House members that have bought the snake oil that was sold could witness what was witnessed today at lunch.”

At the Wednesday lunch, Cruz was asked what he would have done had GOP senators united to filibuster the House bill.

“He kept trying to change the subject because he never could answer the question,” the senator said.“It’s pretty evident it’s never been about a strategy – it’s been about him. That’s unfortunate. I think he’s done our country a major disservice. I think he’s done Republicans a major disservice.”

This Quote Says Everything About The GOP's Shutdown Stand

House Republicans are continuing to play hardball in negotiations over the spending bill that precipitated the government shutdown on Oct. 1, apparently out of fear that compromise would weaken their power.

"We're not going to be disrespected," Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-Ind.) told The Washington Examiner. "We have to get something out of this. And I don't know what that even is."

The GOP spent much of Wednesday blaming President Barack Obama and the Democrats for the effects of the shutdown, which led to the furlough of 800,000 workers and the closure of numerous government services. They failed to mention that the spending bill didn't pass because they loaded the bill with restrictions on the Affordable Care Act, a law that passed in 2010 and was found constitutional by the Supreme Court in June 2012.

the nutjob congress critters have lost the day. they need to pick up their toys and go home to mommy so they can cry on her shoulder because not one other soul in DC wants to hear it.

on the USAF and Naval Academy football game!

'The Naval Academy Athletic Association is a private organization not funded by the government. Gladchuk said the Air Force-Navy game could be held without any “appropriated funding.” Air Force recently created a similar athletic association that operates using private funds, donations and revenue from intercollegiate contests.'

Poll Confirms Americans Blame GOP For Shutdown

A poll released Thursday provided confirmation of what's long been anticipated: more Americans blame Republicans — not President Barack Obama and Democrats — for the first government shutdown since 1996.

According to the latest CBS News poll, 44 percent said they blame the shutdown on Republicans in Congress, compared with 35 percent who said they blame Obama and Democrats. Seventeen percent said they blame both sides.

Those numbers mirror the findings in a CBS poll last week and are consistent with other pre-shutdown surveys.

A CNN/ORC International poll released on Monday showed that Americans would be more inclined to blame congressional Republicans for a shutdown than Obama.

The CBS poll showed that 72 percent of Americans disapprove of shutting down the government over differences related to the Affordable Care Act, comparable to findings in a Quinnipiac University poll on Tuesday.

Cruz is done. he's never going to see the inside of the WH. i doubt he even survives another term. he's an egotistical manic who should have never been allowed to forward a bill of any sort and he should be thrown out of his office ASAP. i'm even starting to wonder if he was born in the US. he's probably been planted here by the Taliban so he can disrupt our government, so don't be surprised if the CIA uses a much loved Bush practice and the guy just disappears one day. a day that can't come soon enough.

there ya go. a little bit of crazy for one who can fully appreciate crazy. you should give me a pat on the back.

Obama didn't change anything liar, He gave small and medium sized companies some breathing room to properly comply with the law. That's not unconstitutional. Did you know that your hero Ronald Reagan stopped enforcing the Sherman Anti Trust Act when he was President? The result of that was big banks turning into ginormous banks that later crashed the economy with their gambles and bad decisions.
