Henchmen? Really?
Remember: "We have to pass it to know what's in it?" NO ONE knew what was in it before it was signed into law. How careless. How reckless. AND you defend it and call me, one who considers that "strategy" deceitful, stark raving mad?????? I suppose if a Republican had used that same MO, you would have heartily approved. Right? Why don't you just stop for a minute and REALLY consider what has been heaved upon this country since that renegade has been in office? Are you capable of doing that? Can you honestly tell me that if the shoe were on the other foot, YOU would be delighted and approving if a Republican had done WHAT Obama has done AND in the way he did it? Careful. This will speak of your integrity.

Oh no, not my message at all. I did not vote for Obama, did not vote for Bush, I don't vote period. I am for a theocracy. That is my point. True Christians are neutral. Really, think about it, do you see Jesus Christ tossing a hand grenade for the USA or any other country when he said "love your neighbor as yourself". When you support a government, you support nationalism, which supports superiority of one group over another. That is not Christian. Acts 10:34
So you're saying that Cornelius wasn't a Godly man?

"The nation’s largest federal workers union will rally in Washington Wednesday outside the Department of Labor headquarters as part of the group’s National Day of Protest against the sequester."


Well DUH..........

800,000 federal workers have forgotten they dont compare to the 22.6 million out of work or under employed.....

I have no big concern for those federal workers, let them get in line at the unemployment office as the rest of americans do....


"The number of unemployed persons, at 11.8 million, and the unemployment rate, at 7.6 percent, were unchanged in June. Both measures have shown little change since February."


In addition there are this many
"The number of persons employed
part time for economic reasons(sometimes referred to as involuntary part-time workers) increased by 322,000 to 8.2 million in June. These individuals were working part time because their hours had been cut back or because they were unable to find a full-time job."


And another number not counted as unemployed but yet are under employed....


In June, 2.6 million persons were marginally attached to the labor force, essentially unchanged from a year earlier.(The data are not seasonally adjusted.) These individuals were not in the labor force, wanted and were available for work, and had looked for a job sometime in the prior 12 months. They were not counted as unemployed because they had not searched for work in the 4 weeks preceding the survey."

You have the right to believe what you want. One thing for sure this country is not being ruled by God. Far from it. Christians are being persecuted worldwide. They are being called terrorist by this current U.S. administration. I see no reason to support an anti-God government and it's deceitful lying officials.
Perhaps you should keep up with what is going on in this country and help God and yourself by hopefully voting for the right people in the next election. Otherwise this country along with God will soon be dead in America.
I support good honest God fearing people over the evil ones that are trying to destroy them and this country. You call that not Christian?
I believe that is what a Christian does with God's help.

WHERE THE G.O.P.'S SUICIDE CAUCUS LIVES
SEPTEMBER 26, 2013
POSTED BY RYAN LIZZA
http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/comment...

...Meadows wanted Boehner to use the threat of a government shutdown to defund Obamacare, a course Boehner had publicly ruled out.

Back home in Meadows’s congressional district, the idea was quite popular. North Carolina’s Eleventh District had been gerrymandered after the 2010 census to become the most Republican district in his state. Meadows won his election last November by fifteen points. The Presidential contest there was an even bigger blowout. Romney won the district by twenty-three points, sixty-one per cent to thirty-eight per cent. While the big story of the 2012 election was about demographics and a growing non-white population that is increasingly Democratic, that was not the story in the Meadows race. His district is eighty-seven per cent white, five per cent Latino, and three per cent black.

Before Meadows sent off his letter to Boehner, he circulated it among his colleagues, and with the help of the conservative group FreedomWorks, as well as some heavy campaigning by Senators Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Mike Lee, seventy-nine like-minded House Republicans from districts very similar to Meadows’s added their signatures.

..The ability of eighty members of the House of Representatives to push the Republican Party into a strategic course that is condemned by the party’s top strategists is a historical oddity. It’s especially strange when you consider some of the numbers behind the suicide caucus.

...These eighty members represent just eighteen per cent of the House and just a third of the two hundred and thirty-three House Republicans. They were elected with fourteen and a half million of the hundred and eighteen million votes cast in House elections last November, or twelve per cent of the total. In all, they represent fifty-eight million constituents. That may sound like a lot, but it’s just eighteen per cent of the population.

Most of the members of the suicide caucus have districts very similar to Meadows’s. While the most salient demographic fact about America is that it is becoming more diverse, Republican districts actually became less diverse in 2012.

...In short, these eighty members represent an America where the population is getting whiter, where there are few major cities, where Obama lost the last election in a landslide, and where the Republican Party is becoming more dominant and more popular. Meanwhile, in national politics, each of these trends is actually reversed.

Jewell, a Republican who says he is embracing Obamacare reluctantly because there’s nothing better being offered, is confident the health exchanges will eventually work.“As a patient, I assume they will get the program up and running,” he said.

And he knows it can be difficult to launch a new program. Jewell was a spokesman at the Health and Human Services Department under former President George W. Bush.

"I am a Republican who is sympathetic to the program. It would be helpful if it worked for me. I assume it will,” he said. He and his wife have pre-existing health conditions that make it difficult to buy private insurance, but the ACA forces insurers offering new policies to take all comers, regardless of previous health issues.

Jewell was among thousands of Americans who were ready to try the new online marketplace.\
“I was trying during the 7 am hour on the East Coast. I can’t believe people were setting their alarms to get up for Obamacare,” Jewell said.

“We logged 10,000 visitors in the last 3 hours,” Connecticut’s exchange administrators tweeted at @AccessHealthCT.“22 enrollments so far. Make sure your browser is updated if you are having problems!”

Some saw the website crashes as a sign of success. "This plan that the Radical GOP says is so bad is on the verge of crashing due to such high volume," said Mark Nelson of Kingman, Ariz., in a Facebook posting

A VERY good post, you nailed it. This is just a part of the process of the majority in this country becoming a minority. Its not going to be pretty or get any better for many years.
