maybe that's why they let me swear like a sailor and never remove any of my posts?

You're delusional. If it would have served a purpose other than poking Veterans in the eye, he would have used his pen and his phone.
Lets review.

The Executive Branch cannot spend money not authorized by Congress.

The new fiscal year started Oct 1st. Your hero Ted Cruz blocked the funding bill to fund the government into the new fiscal year.

Its not that complicated.

But hey there you are blaming Obama for not fixing Ted Cruz's grandstanding that affected veterans and cost the economy 24 billion dollars.

Yes?

I'm not familiar with those threads, but I do know that he's a notorious troll who has proxies for ever state and many different countries. I wouldn't doubt it if he were in all of those threads. He also likes to use an individuals moniker and ISP to troll. He's an angry hateful queer. That link that I posted has been a running joke for a couple of years now. He was drunk when he posted the booty banging comment, but is quick to gay stereotype black men.

Every twenty years whether you need one or not, a new bogeyman will arise and the patriotic core of our great nation will rise up like... a giant penis and spray white goo indiscriminately all over some half-assed primitive country, and then manage to LOSE the "war." The Pantygon is a big place filled with thousands of patriotic people. I think it's safe to say the general staff like to keep the folks fully employed down there and that means developing close relationships with - wait for it - business interests. Speaking of conspiracy theories, how bout them Iraqis, huh? The Air Force is a delightful example. Not only does that branch of the service publicly endorse fundamentalist christianity and rape but essentially ALL of the participants in America's nuclear shield CHEATED TO GET THERE AND STAY THERE!!!! The Post is full to the brim EVERY DAY with ads for this fighter plane and that helicopter and this airborne weapons system. Without those ads TARGETED AT LEGISLATORS AND PURCHASING AGENTS for ALL branches of the military the POST wouldn't even exist anymore. The republican party claims OUTRIGHT that the only business of the Federal Government is to support the military and to protect business. IT'S YOUR PLATFORM. There are NO advanced thinkers produced by the military I assure you. that's not the way to get ahead in this town, or, indeed, the country. They are self-serving slimeballs trying to line their pockets at public expense. The scandal d'jour is that essentially the ENTIRE COMMAND STRUCTURE of THE U.S. AIR FORCE IS UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR CORRUPTION AND THAT IS NOT AN EXAGGERATION! Golfing in Scotland indeed. For shame, sir, for shame. A pox on all your houses,(the one in town and the one your brother-in-law allegedly owns down at the lake.

It just reinforces the old saw about, "If you don't ask, you don't get," which is true in this instance but not necessarily universal.

Yeah it's all the same little old tea bag man.
He likes to pretend he is still somewhat young and that the wheel chair is just to pick up hot blondes.

What, in state prison? How much time did you get? What'd you do write letters to your parole board? What community, what schools?
I served in the Army from '68 to '71. Over my business career I employed hundreds of people and was responsible for their family's well being. I've paid millions in taxes and fees. I've worked on Republican election comities, volunteered my services at local elementary and high schools. Donated labor and materials to three different churches, none of which I belong to. I can go on.
You say you joined because you had a low number & you served 68-71.

But the draft lottery wasn't until December of 1969.
