What's sad is that "revolt" and "revolution" are what has to happen in the Middle Eastern countries in order to change government. How has America fallen to the point where we are actually using those terms in describing the situation in our country? It's our fault for not keeping our elected officials accountable to us. We simply listened to the politician that had the best speeches and said exactly what we wanted to hear, then we cast our vote for them. Instead of kicking them out when they did wrong, we allowed them to convince us they were sorry but were still way better than their competitor. We voted for them again. The crimes got worse and elections got easier. Now they are so entrenched in Washington, that I question whether or not they are actually rigging elections leaving "revolt" and "revolution" as the only alternative for removal from office. I believe the Democrats are the worst offenders but, make no mistake, the Republicans are almost as bad. There are only a handful of politicians that I believe should be allowed to continue serving our country but I would gladly take a clean sweep so we can start over.
I agree.
If either party remotely executed even a forth of the good that they profess they support and fight for, our country would be better for it.
This government corruption began long ago...when the people trusted their elected officials, respected their leadership and decisions, and couldn't fathom the idea of corruption in the White House, and those that suspected it would never have actually spoken it.
Today, corruption leads to reelection.
It has taken America years to get to this point of revolt and revolution, and I dare say the road to recovery could be longer.
History repeats itself, and one day the people will revolt...I am just not so sure the people will have any more ability to overthrow corruption than the middle eastern countries we see in turmoil today do.

WASHINGTON (October 6, 2013)- A large chunk of the furloughed federal work force is headed back to the Pentagon, and those who remain at home or are working without paychecks are a step closer to getting back pay once the partial government shutdown ends.
Still, a resolution to the impasse itself is nowhere in sight.
House Speaker John Boehner doesn't see one. Asked this weekend if Congress was any closer to ending the gridlock, the Ohio Republican answered bluntly, "No."
Boehner and Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew are scheduled to appear on separate new shows Sunday morning. If previous rhetoric is an indication, expect more blame than concession from both sides.
The federal government was partially shut down Tuesday, the first day of the new budget year, after Republicans and Democrats couldn't agree on a plan to continue funding federal agencies.
House Republicans are demanding significant changes to President Barack Obama's signature health care law in exchange for reopening the government, a demand that Democrats say is absurd.
Since Tuesday, the GOP-led House has passed several bills to reopen selected parts of the government. Democratic leaders are rejecting the piecemeal approach, saying the entire government should be reopened and the 800,000 federal workers on furlough put back to work.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ended the argument for most Pentagon civilian employees, ordering nearly all 350,000 back on the job.
Hagel said he based his decision on a Pentagon interpretation of a law called the Pay Our Military Act, which was passed shortly before the partial government shutdown began. Republican lawmakers had complained in recent days that the Obama administration was slow to bring back those workers even though the law allowed it.
In a written statement released Saturday explaining his action, Hagel said the Justice Department advised that the law does not permit a blanket recall of all Pentagon civilians. But government attorneys concluded that the law does allow the Pentagon to eliminate furloughs for "employees whose responsibilities contribute to the morale, well-being, capabilities and readiness of service members."
Hagel said he has told Pentagon officials, including leaders of the military services, to "identify all employees whose activities fall under these categories." He said civilian workers should stand by for further word this weekend.
In remarks to reporters, Robert Hale, the Pentagon's budget chief, said he did not yet know the exact number of civilians who would be brought back to work but that it would be "90 percent plus." He said there are about 350,000 civilians on furlough.
Hale said he hoped that a "substantial number" could be returned to work on Monday but that an exact timetable was not available.
In a rare Saturday session _ and an even rarer showing of bipartisanship _ the House voted 407-0 to pass a bill to provide furloughed workers back pay. The Obama administration supports the retroactive pay bill and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he expects the Democratic-led Senate to pass it.
Even a bill that passed without opposition evoked partisan rhetoric.
"Someone try to explain to the American people today that Republicans decided to shut down government on Oct. 1, and on Oct. 5, they decided to pay all those workers, those 800,000 workers that they told,`Don't come in to work,'" said Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Calif. "If it weren't so serious it really would be absurd."
The standoff is playing out as an even bigger financial crisis looms. The Treasury Department says the federal government will reach the limit of its authority to borrow money on Oct. 17. If Congress doesn't raise the debt limit, the U.S. will default on its obligations for the first time, triggering what many economists say would be an economic catastrophe.

And people like you my friend are directly responsible for promoting the insane agenda of complete gridlock we now face. Hell, half of you would sacrifice our complete historical system just to have your way.
Sure, blame it on the politicians, ignore the fact of your mindless droning implicates you in helping create this potential disaster.

Gridlock is EXACTLY what the founders envisioned when they penned our founding documents. Why would they do that you ask? So only the most constitutionally sound laws would be passed in an expedient manner. Laws like Obamacare, which everybody but John Roberts, knows is unconstitutional were intended by the founders to be like trying to turn a cruise ship instead of a jet ski. Slow and cumbersome.

So you agree Obama is at fault, but he has already sacrificed more than half of our system. You could just have stated that and avoided the droning.

You don't need to look at topix comments to find the responsible parties that are directly responsible for the gridlock, and the true obliteration of our complete historical system because they want their way.
Why don't you turn to legitimate sources that are dealing with this incompetent administration that seems more determined to cripple America than help it.
Your mindless droning implicates you as one of the many spoon-Fed, brainwashed dependent thinkers that thinks you really do live in fantasy America instead of an America that has placed guards in open air spaces to keep the likes of those pesky veterans out of memorials in their honor, and regulating the...OCEAN.
What sort of ego does this? The president. What sort of insanity supports that? An idiot.

Just be glad when you people wake up and realize Obama is spending us into debt and we will never recover from until somebody stands up to him. In all the 17 shutdowns since ford we've had, you never remember congress just which president was in charge therefore this is on Obama's shoulders. And obamacare is a disaster. You can't get on the sight and if you do the premiums are outrageous you can't afford them. Wake up people the president doesn't care for you, he just loves himself. Remember leading from behind means I take all the vacations I want, play as much golf as I can, Campaign as much as I can. While I as president lives in luxury while the rest of americans have to struggle, work extra hours, just to make in meet. I say let them eat cake for I am king. These are his thoughts

What people don't realize is that China is our biggest problem where our debt is concerned because they are artificially holding the value of their currency down. This means it takes more Yuan to buy our dollars to the tune of 6 Yuan to 1 Dollar. We owe China 1.3 trillion. If China let the value of their currency come up just to equal with the dollar then our debt to the Chinese would go from 1.3 trillion to 7.8 trillion without one extra dime being spent. It would crush our standing on the world stage which would crush all but the top 5% here in America. It would be disastrous. To add insult to injury, we are going to have to borrow money from China to implement Obamacare which is going to break us without the Chinese doing anything. China sent out a warning to America that we had better get our debt under control.
