You are right Mr. future president, but it was either laugh or cry, I'm terrible sorry and my check for your campaign is in the mail.

I was willing to let the Senate give an inch to allow the Rethugs to save face but am delighted to see they held firm and offered no concessions. That really is what needed to happen to end the obstructionist tactics of people. They needed to suffer an embarrassing defeat to make them humble. Cruz really should apologize to his party for going against Republican leaders and pushing to dismantle Obamacare and he should apologize to America for the shutdown.

Senator Richard Burr (R-North Carolina):

“Let’s just say sometimes learning what can’t be accomplished is an important long-term thing,” Mr. Burr said,“and hopefully for some of the members they’ve learned it’s impossible to defund mandatory programs by shutting down the federal government.”

Default is not written in stone-
It is an estimate according the WSJ
"The day takes on prominence because it is when the Treasury has estimated it would run out of the short-term moves—such as delaying funding for certain pension programs and halting contributions to a fund that is used to stabilize international financial markets—that allowed the U.S. to continue issuing new debt and pay its bills after the $16.7 trillion debt limit was technically reached in May.
Once that avenue is closed, the U.S. would have to rely on tax receipts and cash on hand—about $30 billion, the Treasury has previously said—to pay interest on its debt, Social Security checks and other obligations. Barring congressional action, that cash will run out, too, because every day the U.S. spends more than it taxes. "

Lets talk about former president clinton and his running off to England to dodge the draft, what is your answer to that question?
Peace

Although that's a very stupid question and I have answered in many times...I think "everyone" that did anything to avoid the draft is disgusting and should not be elgible to run for any office...Do I think that he was a good president ...YES I DO. Do I respect his action about Vietnam Hell no. But Bush's cabinet was filled with draft dodgers and war mongors.

With all due respect, you really need to let this go, Galt.

You're confusing Homer more than he already is. We're on the same side, remember?

But just for the record, no religious cult here - just an ordinary run-of-the-mill believer.

I respect your freedom to be a nonbeliever and pro-choice. I expect the respect from you.

I'll bet you win Father of the Year with that one. So if they go away to school, you won't keep them on your policy? Or will you just say, "git outta here, go on now, git"?

Some do. But this is where we both agree 110%.
Republicans learned a valuable lesson in the last election. Unfortunately, too late. But pretty sure there's going to be a groundswell of a "get out the vote" campaign in 2016.
And since I'm on a song theme today, in the words of the Who, "We won't get fooled again!"
Just hope a lot of Americans won't either.
There is no one left to 'get out', the country is just not producing enough white people anymore.

Try again.
I'm having some problems following your logic.
The House planned to shut down the government by passing funding bills and sending them to the Senate, right?
I never said that. You said they planned to shut down the government and then said there was no government shutdown. Make up your mind already.
