I agree...but brown paper bags can be recycled with cardboard and they do not blow around becoming an eye sore.

How it is wrote:
Unless we want to become part of the fossil record several thousand years from now like many species that preceded us we had better start figuring out how we are going to survive what comes next.
Food, shelter, and everything else that we need for our existence will ultimately come from different sources as many plants and animals that we currently rely on will disappear and many places that we lived in will become unlivable.
That is just how it is.
You are absolutely correct. We have not stood up for what is right in our country and because we have become used to what is handed to us instead of being informed on the facts we listen to the political base who is only interested in what is in it for themselves and their cronies. We need to see the true direction of those who say they are representing we the people. We truly need to have every politician take a lie detector test just to see if they can be honest and follow our constitution. I am disappointed in our leaders and would love to fire the majority of them. We need term limits.

Someone really needs to press Speaker of the House John Boehner about why House Republicans are taking their marching orders from a Texas Senator.

We elected Tea Party Republicans to Congress because we must cut wasteful government spending, repeal intrusive regulations and stop higher taxes. We don't like Obamacare, the House is just doing the job we elected them to do.

We've presented our continuing resolution; since the Senate has rejected it, Obama and Reid have to come up with a compromise that can pass the House. I'd like to see them do their job.

This shutdown is not affecting the economy. Giving in to what the Dems want is very much going to worsen the economy. This shutdown affects some federal workers but the government is making it worse so "The People suffer outcry. They want to be needed so they can take over and grow.

Nobody talks about the next generation having to pay back all the debt the Dumbellcrats want to keep piling on, or is it their intention to cause economic disaster? Ironically, don't the Dumbellcrats understand they will suffer the most when inflation becomes rampant? But they aren't very smart to begin with and then being led by Obozo doesn't help.
Most of Obama's low-info voters don't understand the difference between the national debt and the deficit so they buy into the left's talking point about Obama having made progress on this year's deficit despite the fact that he has added 6 TRILLION to the national debt-- the real threat to our republic.
