You just posted 1700 words. No one is going to read a wall of text. Haven't you learned anything from watching candidate Lynch spin out of control on Topix?

You need to start taking your antipsych meds and switch to decafe.

I always find it comical that you post all this stuff and never cite your sources. What are you hiding? many of these articles are the same tired old things that are regurgitated over and over again because you have nothing current to offer.

Sad...very very sad.

Typical Republican responses, it's too complicated, there are too many words for us to comprehend what is being said!!

How's this...very simple for you, let's wee if you can agree, that's a joke!

HOSTAGE TAKING IS WRONG! PERIOD!

It's astonishing that some people in this country think it shopuld be part of our syetm of Government! Really!!!

The Taliban, takes hostages, asks for ransom, tries to extort things they want.

Al-Queda, would use Hostage Taking as a tactic, it's a terrorist tactic!

That's what is shameful, that some of you believe Hostage Taking should become a part of our system of Government, AMERICANS do not support Hostage Taking taqactics as legitimate Governing, it's dumbfkery to think that it's OK!!!!

This si the stupidest one yet!!

Republicans propose funding Cancer research for children in hopes of generating a talking point to shame Dems with.

The propose that funding, while leaving WIC shut down!!

What a joke, why would Republicans want to cure a child of Cancer only to starve that same child to death if they happen to also need nutritional assistance!!!

It's a stunt, plain and simple, they're playing messaging games now, ZERO real interest in how much this hurts the economy and evryone in it!!

You're all afraid it will work!!!

"Obviously, in a nation as large as the United States, there will be plenty of anecdotal evidence to bolster just about every possible argument, but Sy Mukherjee talked to an Arkansas man yesterday who offered a perspective that ought to terrify Republicans.

Butch Matthews is a 61-year-old former small business owner from Little Rock, Arkansas who used to wake up every morning at 4 A.M. to deliver canned beverages to retailers before retiring in 2010. A lifelong Republican, he was heavily skeptical of the Affordable Care Act when it first passed. "I did not think that Obamacare was going to be a good plan, I did not think that it was going to help me at all," he told ThinkProgress over the phone.

But after doing a little research, Matthews eventually realized how much the law could help him. And on Tuesday, his local Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) provider confirmed that he would be able to buy a far better plan than his current policy while saving at least $13,000 per year through Arkansas' Obamacare marketplace.

Matthews assumed he wouldn't like the Affordable Care Act, but he also didn't like his current plan, the price of which kept climbing while covering fewer costs.

So he got the facts on his own, signed up through an exchange, and is poised to save an enormous amount of money.

Matthews told Mukherjee he would encourage other Obamacare skeptics to "learn more about it before they start talking bad about it." He added, "I still am a very strong Republican, but this ... I'm so happy that this came along....[T]his is going to be a great help for us."

It would appear, then, that Butch Matthews is the Republican Party's worst nightmare.

--

Here's an older white Republican man in a "red" state who assumed the Affordable Care Act would be bad for him and his family. Then he got educated. Then he signed up. Now he's happy.

Why are Republicans furiously fighting to destroy the Affordable Care Act, especially right now? Because will be plenty of folks like Butch Matthews out there who'll have health care security and more money in their pockets as a result of the reform law.

And that's the exact opposite of the Republicans' partisan goals. The key is to kill Obamacare before Americans get to know and like it. People can argue about the merits of a movement predicated on the need for public ignorance, but it's clear that the better the public understands the Affordable Care Act, the worse it will be for the GOP.

Jonathan Cohn added today, "With every day, more and more people are discovering that Obamacare is a source of security -- and a way to get the heath care they have always needed. This is the reality Republicans have always feared. Confronted with the reality of Obamacare, rather than the right's distorted version of it, people will cherish it."

The President just said it best..

You got what you wanted, a Government Shut Down, now, you're trying to find a way out of it!!

You wanted the shut down, you got the shut down you wanted.

Now, you'd like to re-direct that blame with a noise machine marketing campaign!

There is a simple way out, Boehner brings the clean CR to the floor and it passes, that's your way out, period!

Otherwise, you're going to lose this messaging campaign cause everything you try, only you shortbreads actually believe!

It is interesting that so many agencies in our government can scale back to 10% of their workforce, which is considered essential....hmmm
should make you wonder.

http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/contingency-pla...

Maybe the Republicans did something even better by waking up everyone to how much waste is happening at the Federal level?

Maybe this might show many people that our government doesn't really have to be as big as the Democrats keep making us believe it needs to be?

Oh yeah, that's just great, grab that bull by the horns tool.

It's nice you don't GAS about anybody else, seems, that kid with Cancer just flew out your brain in seconds!!!!!!

Could it be you really don't GAS about that kid, the same thing you just tried to say Harry Reid was guilty of!!

You're a tool Factless, you'll go in any direction necessary to try and fool the world and get people to believe you've ever even once been genuine!

You're trotting out BS after BS attempts at justification for deliberately hurting this economy, this country and everyone in it.

Let's use your words..

"It is interesting that so many agencies in our government can scale back to 10% of their workforce, which is considered essential....hmmm

Yeah, makes me wonder what exaclty you would say if, we were attacked tomorrow and because you were playing this massive "maybe we can do without the Government" game, we got blind sided???

I know, you'd blame Obama, even though you're here arguing the shut down is great!!!!!!

10%, have a look at the actual percentages meathead

http://www.cnn.com/interactive/2013/09/politi...

HAlf the civilion workforce of the Department of Defense!

Since you don't seem to be able to read, I'll re-post it for you...

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that the shutdown "seriously damages our ability to protect the safety and security of this nation and its citizens. We will have to shuffle people in and out depending on what we believe the concern of the day is...So each day that goes by, the jeopardy increases."

Clapper said the shutdown "is not just a Beltway issue. It affects our capability to support the military, diplomacy and our policy makers. From my standpoint, it's extremely damaging."

He continued: "The danger here is that this will accumulate over time. The damage will be insidious. I've been in the intelligence business for about 50 years. I've never seen anything like this."

General Keith Alexander, director of the National Security Agency (NSA), added that the shutdown "has impacted us very hard" and "has had a huge impact on morale."

Gen. Alexander told the Senate hearing that 70% of intelligence community civilian employees are furloughed, including over 960 with Ph.D.s, 4,000 computer scientists and 1,000 mathematicians, according to media reports.

Oh yeah, let's have a shut down party while we're vulnerable to attack!!! Great Idea.

Sonny,

You really need to get a life dude!!! Gawd, you are so easy to fuck with!! It figures you would go look at the actual figures and find a single department that has more than 10%...what a tool you are!

I may not have much more time today to spar with you, so take a deep breath..the air is good. Gotta go work that second job of mine to pay for the new much higher premiums I will have to pay for health insurance because of that dumbass in the Whitehouse.

Have a great day buddy!!!:)

I don't think I need 960 PHDs, 4,000 computer scientists and 1,000 mathematicians to tell me what I can figure out myself. This country has way to many angry ranting single moms like you. Look at that, I figured that out and I didn't need a board of experts to tell me.

Republicans offered to fund the NIH. Democrats said no thanks. So the Democrats hands are dirty now.
