Agreed!!

With the nojobs bill republicans in office, the working class can't afford to do anything anymore. But republicans make sure the rich have every single thing they ask/pay for.

It's a shame that republicans have let this country and the working class get into this position.

And it's an even bigger shame republican voters aren't educated enough to see through it.

No wonder republicans are against education in such a big way. Dumbing down voters means a bigger republican voter base..... At the expense of our country.

Again, patriots my ass!

What happened to that Teabagger Republican? He disappeared shortly after failing his own challenge.
Oh well.
On the bright side, thanks to him I brushed up on my Geometry skills. If anyone wants me to figure out the circumference of a circle using the radius, I dont even have to stop and think about it.

America has now surpassed every country in the world with production of oil and natural gas. Exxon for two years in a row, and probably this year also, has made more profit than any company in world history.

Hey, did you see my question to you about ALEC? Have you ever heard of them before?
I have been reading about them off and on. I knew they were a Coch Brothers funded group pushing the teabagger agenda.

ALEC Exposed: The Koch Connection Untold sums of cash poured into ALEC by Charles and David Koch have been an effective investment in advancing their worldview.

Hundreds of ALEC’s model bills and resolutions bear traces of Koch DNA: raw ideas that were once at the fringes but that have been carved into “mainstream” policy through the wealth and will of Charles and David Koch. Of all the Kochs’ investments in right-wing organizations, ALEC provides some of the best returns: it gives the Kochs a way to make their brand of free-market fundamentalism legally binding.

No one knows how much the Kochs have given ALEC in total, but the amount likely exceeds $1 million—not including a half-million loaned to ALEC when the group was floundering. ALEC gave the Kochs its Adam Smith Free Enterprise Award, and Koch Industries has been one of the select members of ALEC’s corporate board for almost twenty years. The company’s top lobbyist was once ALEC’s chairman.

As a result, the Kochs have shaped legislation touching every state in the country. Like ideological venture capitalists, the Kochs have used ALEC as a way to invest in radical ideas and fertilize them with tons of cash. Take environmental protections.

The Kochs have a penchant for paying their way out of serious violations and coming out ahead. Helped by Koch Industries’ lobbying efforts, one of the first measures George W. Bush signed into law as governor of Texas was an ALEC model bill giving corporations immunity from penalties if they tell regulators about their own violation of environmental rules. Dozens of other ALEC bills would limit environmental regulations or litigation in ways that would benefit Koch. ALEC’s model legislation reflects parts of the Kochs’ agenda that have little to do with oil profits. Long before ALEC started pushing taxpayer-subsidized school vouchers, for example, the Koch fortune was already underwriting attacks on public education. David Koch helped inject the idea of privatizing public schools into the national debate as a candidate for vice president in 1980. A cornerstone of the Libertarian Party platform, which he bankrolled, was the call for “educational tax credits to encourage alternatives to public education,” a plan to the right of Ronald Reagan. Several pieces of ALEC’s model legislation echo this plan. The Kochs’ mistrust of public education can be traced to their father, Fred, who ranted and raved that the National Education Association was a communist group and public-school books were filled with “communist propaganda,” paranoia that extended to all unions, President Eisenhower and the “pro-communist” Supreme Court. Such redbaiting might be ancient history if fifty years later David were not calling President Obama a “hard-core socialist” who is “scary.”

The Kochs have not just multiplied the wealth of their dad; they’ve repackaged and amplified his worldview. David’s latest venture, Americans for Prosperity, subsidizes the Tea Party movement, which repeats this “socialist” smear. Charles is a member of the exclusive Mount Pelerin Society, inspired by Frederic von Hayek’s antisocialist polemic The Road to Serfdom.

R-E-S-P-E-C-T! Conservatives say they need it in shutdown debate

Washington (CNN)-- The great government shutdown of 2013 is about Obamacare and budget priorities, but it also is about respect.

In short, conservative House Republicans don't think they get enough of it from President Barack Obama and the Senate.

"Republicans are now in a position where they don't want to cave in because it sets a bad precedent that the Senate would be somewhat dictating how the House runs," GOP Rep. Michael Grimm of New York said this week.

Conservative Rep. Marlin Stutzman of Indiana went further, telling the Washington Examiner that "we're not going to be disrespected."

"We have to get something out of this," he said. "And I don't know what that even is."
Stutzman's office confirmed that he said it but issued a statement Thursday in which the congressman said he "carelessly misrepresented the ongoing budget debate."

"If you're being disrespected, it's because of that attitude you've got, that you deserve to get something for doing your job," Obama said at a campaign-style event Thursday in Rockville, Maryland.

At issue is a short-term spending plan that would fund the government in the new fiscal year that started Tuesday.

The congressional stalemate pits a conservative GOP wing that wants to abolish the Affordable Care Act against Democrats trying to protect Obama's landmark health care reforms passed in 2010 and upheld by the Supreme Court last year.

Add to that the longstanding resentment by GOP conservatives who say their constituents and views are ignored by Democrats and the mainstream media, which also motivates their stand to link funding the government to dismantling Obamacare.

In particular, they want to halt the pattern of the Republican-led House being forced to accede to the will of Obama and the Democratic-led Senate, as occurred in the past year over emergency funding in response to Superstorm Sandy and when Congress voted to raise tax rates on high-income Americans despite a conservative pledge against any tax increases.

However, Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have rejected GOP efforts to use the government funding issue and upcoming debt ceiling deadline as leverage in seeking partisan goals such as dismantling the Affordable Care Act.

An unclear GOP strategy also has opened conservatives to criticism that their demands created a path to the shutdown without a way of getting out.

Reid told CNN Chief Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash on Thursday that tea party conservatives he described as "anarchists" were setting the GOP agenda, with Boehner going along because he feared that he would otherwise lose his leadership post.

Now, House conservatives take umbrage with the heated rhetoric from Obama and Reid as frustration has risen with the government shutdown.

Reid also said Boehner lacked courage for refusing to hold a House vote on the Senate-passed "clean" spending plan -- one with no anti-Obamacare provisions -- that would end the government shutdown.

Obama also challenged Boehner on the issue, saying Thursday that the shutdown would end immediately if Boehner allowed such a vote.

"Put it on the floor and let every individual member of Congress make up their own minds, and they can show the American people are you for a shutdown or not," Obama said, adding that House Republicans need to stop what he called careening from crisis to crisis instead of fulfilling their congressional responsibilities.

Grimm said Thursday that such criticism harms the prospects for negotiating some kind of agreement.

"If you want a deal done in the boardroom, you don't assault people before you walk in," he said, adding that "you're talking about human beings"
and noting, "The speaker is a human being, too."

Hagel: Most civilian DOD workers can return next week

Washington (CNN)-- Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Saturday that "most [Department of Defense] civilians placed on emergency furlough during the government shutdown will be asked to return to work beginning next week."

The ongoing government shutdown has left more than 800,000 workers furloughed for the past five days -- roughly half of those are civilians working for the Pentagon.

Hagel says Pentagon and Justice Department attorneys have concluded that the law does allow the Department of Defense to eliminate furloughs for employees whose responsibilities contribute to the morale, well-being, capabilities and readiness of service members.

Hagel says he's directing that employees who fall under these categories be identified.

"I expect us to be able to significantly reduce -- but not eliminate -- civilian furloughs under this process," Hagel said in a statement.

http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/05/politics/govern...

"for employees whose responsibilities contribute to the morale, well-being, capabilities and readiness of service members."

As a federal retiree, I would say they should declare all 800,000 federal employees are just that.
