You are so right. conservative have been saying that. They were saying that and actually attempting to make it happen during the Dubya Bush years. So what happened just after that effort (fortunately) failed? Ever heard of Enron? What about WorldCom? What about the stock market crash of 2007 and 2008, where retirement funds invested in those failed securities lost 90% of their value? Individual retirement savings were consumed entirely by Wall Street fraud. How could anyone forget? Maybe republican voters never knew about that. Turns out that voters were so sick of the republican crash that they elected Obama, a black democrat.
That is what chaps their chops now, that it took a black democrat to begin to straighten out the financial disaster republikans had created. What is even more stupid is that republikans are now trying to creat another financial crisis even larger than that one in 07-08.

Yet Galveston Tx is the only U.S. city that was able to opt out of SS before Congress changed the law in 1983 that prevented other cities from following suit and they invest the resident's retirement in the stock market rather than the govt program. The result is the retired citizens of Galveston are enjoying a lot better retirement portfolio than the rest of the nation regardless of the ups and downs of the stock market!
As far as the market crash, EVERYONE except the Commucrats realize it was Carter/Clinton and their Community Reivestment Act that forced banks to give loans to unqualified borrowers.
"To enforce the statute, federal regulatory agencies are to examine banking institutions for CRA compliance, and take this information into consideration when approving applications for new bank branches or for mergers or acquisitions (Section 804.)"
It was this practice of forcing the banks to give loans to people who couldn't afford the homes in the first place in exchange for new branches or mergers which caused the housing bubble to burst which led to the economy crashing. Of course the Commucrats, along with the state run media, placed the blame on the predatory lenders and Wall Street to which the "dumbmasses" bought hook, line, and sinker!

That's just another one of the Ruler's lies! Just like when he called the Speaker at 10:45 this morning and said he would NOT negotiate or compromise under any circumstances and then he gave a speech around 2:30 this afternoon saying he's tried to sit down and negotiate!
Typical Commucrats, speaking from both faces!

Oh yes. The republican shut down is inconsequential --except for the $256,000,000 dollars per day we are wasting paying 800,000 federal employees to stay home. The damage to the economy doesn't matter to republikans either because "we have to get something out of this and I not sure what that even is".
The 100% shut down should be interesting when grandma doesn't get her social security , the military doesn't get paid, T bills and government bonds become worthless, retirement plans invested in the former fail, the government employees don't get paid after all , credit is completely cut off , the government cannot borrow even if they wanted to and the world economy fails. None of that matters as long as the tea party idiots get to hold the USA hostage. The republikans crashed the economy in 2008 and now we have the same drunk drivers demanding to take the stearing wheel again. No thanks. Let it happen.
<quoted text>
Is that the same 800,000 non-essential employees that Grandma Nancy spoke of? You know, the 17% of govt employees that aren't getting paid. Like TEW pointed out, if they're non-essential, why are they being paid in the first place?
Typical Commucrat demagoguery! When you don't get your way, you claim the sky is falling and the poor and elderly are going to starve and die! Boo freaking hoo! Nobody is buying it....except the "dumbmasses" that are drinking the Commucrats kool-aid. News flash, you've already got their vote!
The cold hard facts are that the Ruler has no clue as to what's going on! He stood in front of the teleprompter today and claimed if the House doesn't raise the debt ceiling then we will default on our bills. He obviously has no clue of what "default" means!
According to the public records, the Federal Govt rakes in $225 Billion a month in tax revenue and our financial obligations (our bills) total $18 Billion a month. If the debt ceiling ISN'T raised, that leaves, according to basic arithmetic,$207 Billion to operate the federal govt per month! WE WILL NOT DEFAULT! Yes, there will be some programs that will lose or see a reduction in funding but that's what you get when you fail to propose a budget, the budget is now forced upon you! The Ruler and his cronies can't stand the fact that they'll have to operate within a budget, something he's NEVER done since taking office!
The ONLY purpose of raising the debt ceiling is so that he can fund Obamacare, you know, that bill that was passed in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve that had to be passed so we could see what was in it! Thanks but no thanks!

Still name calling. You're getting more pathetic daily.

I happen to know that Obama's "ideology" or what's the definition of "ideology", his idea or beliefs that guide him about social issues and forms his skewed thinking that's sinking this country is terribly off track.

He believes in Robin Hood and fairy tales. He doesn't have the right to take from one class and give to another to ensure equality amongst all. He has forgotten he was not elected to personally make sure everyone is "happy" and everyone is a "winner."

He also believes he's judge and jury and can kill citizens of his own country without a jury of their peers. On many occasions you have even pointed out this fact. Do you not think this might be overstepping his boundaries just a tick too much.

His administration has no problem with targeting groups of people that disagree with him i.e. IRS audits unfairly, to which you have admitted.

You tried playing the race card earlier. Mr. Obama has shown on occasions he will just outright play race baiter. Why did he interject himself into the case of the professor, that happened to be black, being arrested and then had some stupid beer summit to cover the ass he made of himself. My favorite is if he had a son he would like Trayvon Martin. He's just like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, he never lets a good racial crisis go to waste.

Didn't he do a swell job with the Benghazi debacle? Sent Susan Rice out to lie, she got caught and everyone knew he sent her out to do damage control and the sad thing is, she needed control. Then he calls in Hillary, same outcome. He couldn't go out and defend what happened he was hanging with Beyonce raising some cash for his re-election.

You tell me, are any of these stories imaginary? No and you know they're not. Are they not a reflection of his ideology? BTW, I don't even know what a beckerhead is.

Boehner what a joke. Boehner doesn't really want this shut down nor does he want to default. What he is really afraid of is loosing his speaker of the house job. The teaparty has a firm grip on his begonias. If the house were allowed to vote, there would be enough votes to pass a clean CR and Boehner knows it.

Speaking of Boehner, doesn't he look alot like "The Grinch That Stole Christmas"? That's it, Ted Cruz should have read from this Dr. Seuss book during his faux filibuster instead of "Green Eggs and Ham". I believe it would have been more fitting of the situation. Lol.

One's perspective is the sum total of their collective associations. For instance: You continue to believe that babymommas, drug addicts, slackers and disabled persons are causing the financial woes of the USA because, evidently, you have or have had extensive social contact with hordes of these undesirables and resent the fact that you work while they do not.. Having little or no association with the beautiful people who might even drop a crumb that you could use, you fail to see that as a class , they are consuming over 150% more public welfare than the less fortunate. Therefore you want to blame the poor and defenseless because they are defenseless and available. But at the same time you fiercely defend the more expensive deadbeats because they are more powerful than you and because they are pretty much unavailable to suffer your wrath. You hate Obama because he has the spine to see the entire picture and isn't a narrow minded jellyfish focused entirely on tax breaks for the rich.

Hello TSF. It's me Bacon. You are so correct for quite a few years I worked with this group of what you describe as undesirables. Not all, but the majority are slackers, druggies, and promiscuous leeches on society. Why should the working class have to take care of their poor choices in life?

As far as crumbs from the beautiful, I happen to think anyone with a job keeping a roof over their head, food on the table. parenting their children, instilling values of working for the their needs and wants and respecting their bodies and mind is a beautiful person.

As you seem to, I don't resent anyone that has more financially than I, nor do look down on anyone that doesn't have as much financially as I.

I abhor slothful, lazy people, that want someone to clean up their messes perpetually. The disabled and the elderly, yes, they need a hand, but a healthy young man and woman that sit and wait for government assistance every month because they think they're too good to work at McDonalds or anywhere gets my goat.

I may not hang around with what you call the beautiful people and beg for crumbs, but apparently we have different views of beautiful people as I stated earlier. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and mine is people that are honest, hard working and clean up their own messes made by poor choices.

Heading back today away from people like you that enjoy a simpler way of life.

You really shouldn't believe the propaganda being spewed from the Commucrats! Do you REALLY believe that there are 20+ Republicans in the House that would be willing to go on record and vote against the party? That's political suicide! That would be like Boehner claiming there's 20+ liberals in the Senate willing to vote to defund Obamacare!
Recent polls showed that 72% of registered Republican voters agree with the TEA Party and what the Republicans are doing. Calls being received by top Republican Congressmen are 8 to 1 in favor of their actions.
The TEA Party IS the Republican Party!

Hello Bacon. The beautiful people that I describe are the same slackers, deadbeats, corrupt, immoral, undesirables except with money. They just look better to you because they have nice cars, clothes, yachts, airplanes etc. These are the congressmen who vote against food stamps for hungry children and disabled senior and then turn around and vote themselves million dollar subsidy welfare. The give and get government no bid contracts in return for giving and getting kickbacks. They pay congressmen to make sure their penance only bids for OUR natural resources are given to them. The examples go on and on. This country is far from broke. We are being robbed by corrupt mismanagement of both parties while they keep the public focused on boogy man abstractions of liberas, conservatives, commies, socialist etc.

Yes, the American people re-elected the Ruler to the White House and Commucrats control of the Senate but they also re-elected Republicans control of the house. Neither the Ruler, Reid, Pelosi, or the state run media have the Constitutional power to decide if or when the House votes on anything!
This claim of 20+ votes is nothing more than a political tactic by the Commucrats trying to expose a chink in the Republican's armor that doesn't exist! Just more liberal propoganda!

Are you claiming that the liberal Congress didn't pressure the banks to give bad loans to people who they knew couldn't afford the loans in the first place? Do you not remember Barney Frank kicking the regulators out of the Senate Hearing meetings because he feared they would expose the truth and implicate himself as well as the rest of Congress on the sub prime mortgages? You must have a selective memory!
