<quoted text>Look! It cracks me up that liberals won't take ANY responsibility for what is happening. 17% of the government is shut down. THANK YOU for alluding to a PARTIAL shutdown. I think you've been the ONLY lib who has mentioned that. Don't you think it rather interesting WHICH things have been "chosen" to be shut down? Wonder how it's decided? I'll bet NO REPUBLCANS have been in included in THAT decision. Remember: Obama is at the helm. This is on HIS watch.
You want to talk about blackmail? Look to your OWN party. YOUR guy stated he wouldn't compromise. What can you do with that? Where can you go? He is a FOOL of epic proportion and PROUDLY I didn't vote for him. I completely agree with your statement about the struggle. There are NO heroes. Perhaps if Obama hadn't startd out his presidency by strutting around and declaring it's his way or the highway, he MIGHT could garner at least a little cooperation when the chips are down. He has NO BUSINESS in the WH.
Waaaaahhhh !

Wasssshhhh !

We're Right Wing Wacko Terrorists blackmailing and extorting America because you wouldn't vote for us.

We hate democracy. Sure we lost the elections and the Right Wing Supreme Court even said we're nuts, be we get to win because we want to.

Waaaaaahhhhh !

Now you wing even surrender to our blackmail and terrorism. Crazy Ted Cruz and Paul (I lived on Social Security) Ryan promised us you'd surrender and you haven't.

Stop being mean to us crazies !

We're Right Wingers. We're crazy as loons, We're wannabe bullies. And we are damn mad you haven't surrendered to our extortion.

Waaaaaahhhh !

A lot of Americans were not ready for a mixed-race president. They weren’t ready for gay marriage. They weren’t ready for the wave of legal and illegal immigration that redefined American demographics over the past two or three decades, bringing in lots of nonwhites. They weren’t ready — who was?— for the brutal effects of globalization on working- and middle-class Americans or the devastating fallout from the financial crisis.

They feel the culture is running away from them (and they’re mostly right). They lack the power to control their own government. But they still have just enough to shut it down.
Animosity toward the federal government has been intensifying at a stunning rate. In a survey released on Sept. 23, Gallup found that the percentage of Republicans saying the federal government has too much power — 81 percent — had reached a record-setting level.
The movement to the right on the part of the Republican electorate can be seen in Gallup surveys calculating that the percentage of Republicans who identify themselves as conservative grew between 2002 and 2010 by 10 percentage points, from 62 to 72 percent. During the same period, the percentage of Republicans who identify themselves as moderates fell from 31 to 23 percent.
These trends date back to the 1970s. Surveys conducted by American National Election Studies found that the percentage of self-described conservative Republicans rose from 42 in 1972 to 65 percent in 2008, while the percentage of moderate Republicans fell from 26 to 16 percent.

Wow. You thsure are thmart.
Obama's approval rating? 37% Yeeeah. Everyone is LOVING him. lol
This is Obama's fault. You should be ashamed for supporting what he is choosing to shut down. Only 17% of the government is shut down, but look at what the Dems have chosen. Pathetic.
I am truly beginning to understand WHY YOU need a one party system to make all of your decisions.

Why did the democrats not pass these three bills?

Accordingly, House Republicans presented three bills to restore funding to national parks, veterans and the District of Columbia government. Democrats voted down all three.(For procedural reasons, the measures required a two-thirds majority.)

From Social Security to civil rights to Medicaid to Medicare, never in the modern history of the country has major social legislation been enacted on a straight party-line vote. Never. In every case, there was significant reaching across the aisle, enhancing the law’s legitimacy and endurance. Yet Obama­care — which revolutionizes one-sixth of the economy, regulates every aspect of medical practice and intimately affects just about every citizen — passed without a single GOP vote.

52. Why do some federal employees continue to work during a shutdown? The law — or at least, the Justice Department's interpretation of it — contains exemptions for several classes of employees: The biggest exemption is for employees necessary to protect public health, safety or property. But property could include government data, ongoing research experiments or other intangibles. Political appointees are exempt because they cannot be placed on leave by law. Employees necessary for the president to carry out his constitutional responsibilities are exempt. Finally, employees whose salaries are paid from sources outside an annual spending bill can still get paid and report to work.
53. Who decides which employees work and which go home? Each agency is responsible for coming up with its own contingency plan, based on guidance from the Office of Management and Budget and the Office of Personnel Management. Those plans are then sent to the White House for review.(links to guidelines at above)
Is Michelle's site still up and running? I guess THAT is essential. Wonder why the Amber Alert site was shut down until there was so much backlash that it was brought back up? I guess that wasn't considered essential. If there are rules(as you posted), wonder how those rules can be indescriminately enforced( or unenforced)?????
There you go again. Defending theindefensible. You should be ashamed of youself, but you libroids don't have the "conscience" gene.

I was just wondering if Obama had given any thought to closing all Federal Highways, and closing all airports by removing all the air traffic controllers.
That should put the hurt on everyone and show them who the boss is.
It shows me that the Federal Government is too large and controls way too much of out everyday lives. We have let it happen little by little, and now the government can do almost anything it wishes to make us suffer by pure extortion.

The Republicans were too intelligent to vote in favor of something they had not even read. The Democrats, on the other hand, were as ignorant as Obama knew they were and knew he could count on them supporting it. There you have it. It's like the libroids on this forum. They don't have any idea what they are supporting. They are just supporting it because Obama told them to.
