Are you a socialist in the guise of a liberal?
Are you for a government centrist system or a people centrist system? Who would you want to have power?
Are you nuts? The very idea of centrism is to avoid the extremes of both the right and left. I'm for the people and the best outcome for the people is to implement the Affordable Care Act ASAP.

Obama with egg on face...

China tells us to butt out!

"China said on Monday the United States, Australia and Japan should not use their alliance as an excuse to intervene in territorial disputes in the East China Sea and South China Sea, and urged them to refrain from inflaming regional tensions"

why would they feel the need to issue this now?

Amazing how there is monies to pay "facilitators" to assist folks applying for nobamakare but no monies to pay rangers to keep memorials open that honor our military hero's.
What's amazing is, you covet the memories of the dead over the health &, quality of living of our present & future, living people! If you don't understand that, you might as well hang yourself!

Republicans Were Never Going to “Win” the Shutdown

It’s obvious, but it is worth saying once again: there never could have been a “big win” for Republicans under the circumstances, and it is doubtful that they could have “won” the current standoff in any way. Too many on the right believe false promises of unlikely or impossible political victory, and the false expectation prompts them to make futile stands that end up worsening their already weak position. While it’s true that the administration and Congressional Democrats are also taking damage the longer the shutdown continues, Republicans cannot prevail in a “war” of attrition like this, because they started in the weaker position and have much less goodwill to squander than the other side.

This is one reason why comparisons with the 1995-96 shutdown experience are potentially so misleading when thinking about the current one: the Republican Party as a whole was much more well-liked in the mid-’90s than it has been in the last seven years, and so was less likely to suffer serious political damage from clashes with the president. As much as GOP unfavorability has increased recently, it has been very high since it rose above 50% during Bush’s second term. It is almost five years since Bush left office, and the party was only just barely stating to recover from the loss of public trust and favor that it experienced during his tenure. The last two weeks have quickly undone that halting recovery. The Bush legacy continues to be a drag on the party’s prospects, and that reminds people of what can happen when Republicans run the government. Because of that, the current GOP has a much higher bar to clear to prove that it deserves to regain the public’s trust, and it puts them in a significantly weaker position in almost any confrontation with the administration than Republicans in the ’90s were. If Republicans didn’t win “big” back then, it is folly to expect that they could now.

In the end Republican greed will save the day. Any day now the rest of the world will realize that right wing fanatics are really crazy enough to prevent the government from paying our bills. Then the stock market will take a dive. I'm guessing about 1,000 points should cause the phony patriots to be less patriotic and come crawling to Obama.
End of problem.
Obama can pay the debt without an increase in the debt ceiling...the choice to default is entirely on his shoulders...

When did you receive the authority to change the definition of the word "subsidy" in the English language?
/&#712;s&#601;bsid &#275;/
noun: subsidy;&#8195;plural noun: subsidies. a sum of money granted by the government or a public body to assist an industry or business so that the price of a commodity or service may remain low or competitive.
"a farm subsidy"
If the government never collected the money, that money was never the government's to grant, you fucking moron.
I know you communists have a very difficult time understanding the concept that the government doesn't own everything by default.
The money belongs to the private company. The only money that belongs to the government is the money the government collected. If the government never collected that money, that money does not belong to the government, thus the government cannot "grant" that money to any company because that money doesn't belong to the government.
A government "grant" is money given, just like a grant given to some student.
There are no subsidies to oil companies. Subsidies to oil companies is an urban legend. They don't exist. There is no such thing as a subsidy to oil companies in the United States.
And, the money doesn't belong to the government. Only the taxes collected belong to the government. All other money belongs to the private company. The government cannot grant money it does not possess to the company that already possesses that money.
Just how stupid are you?

Dr. Benjamin Carson is the former Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins and the first neurosurgeon to successfully separate Siamese twin babies joined at the head.
He is also proving to be the next soft spoken but plain speaking Ronald Reagan.
Carson quoted Alinsky to show why he believes Obama won't engage in dialogue with his conservative opponents -- because that would "humanize" them. And why he uses "ridicule" to "demonize" them.
One of Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals". Obama learned them well.
Using "ridicule" to "demonize" liberals is what your cronies and your reich wing Hate Talk Radio gods practice on a daily basis. I suggest you look in the mirror.
