Hey neat. Most Americans blame the GOP for the government shutdown.
Forty-six percent of respondents would blame congressional Republicans, 36 percent would blame Obama and 13 percent would blame both. Sixty-nine percent said that the GOP is acting like "spoiled children" in the budget fight, while 58 percent think that of congressional Democrats and 49 percent think that of President Barack Obama. Six in 10 respondents reject the GOP's approach and think it is more important to avoid a shutdown than to make major changes to the Affordable Care Act.

So the facts tell us that congressional republicans are the ones who are fighting to keep GW Bush's secret torture camps open and Obama has tried many times to shut them down.
Funny how every single point you guys make get's shutdown by the facts. How every prediction you have made about where we are heading has been tinfoil hat bullsh1t wrong. No wonder Americans view the GOP as "spoiled children".
#20818 Oct 1, 2013
you can't add 2+2, and are throwing out fantasy percentages like a parrot.
The Democrats in the Senate closed the government down because they refused obamacare as their healthcare.
The Democrats in office insist the taxpayer subsidize their super cadillac programs currently in place, or they will shut down the government in strike.
In 2014 remember every single politician that voted NO on last nights bill. Print off a copy now prior to them censoring the info.
Affordable care act= biggest lie ever told, and the American people know it.
your percentages are more worthless than day old used toilet paper.
#20819 Oct 1, 2013
your comedy is nowhere near as good as saturday night live.
you suck in fact.
even turning the facts 180 degrees in your attempt, you failed as always.
Ask your god Harry Reid to accept Obamacare for his healthcare plan.

It seems that your entire response consists of a series of insults.
"However, in 1977 Congress passed the Hyde Amendment which put limitations on Medicaid coverage of abortion, allowing it only in the cases of rape, incest, or if the mother's life was physically endangered. Over the years, those two exceptions were eliminated. In 1979, abortions performed if a mother's life was endangered were no longer allowed, and in 1981 abortions performed due to rape and/or incest were denied.
As the Hyde Amendment must be passed by Congress annually, the pendulum of opinion over abortion coverage has swung back and forth very slightly over the years. In 1993 Congress permitted abortion coverage for victims of rape and incest, and the current version of the Hyde Amendment also permits abortion for women whose lives are endangered by their pregnancies.
The ban on federal funding for abortion affects more than low income women. Abortion is not covered for women in the military, the Peace Corps, federal prisons, and those who receive care from Indian Health Services."

I think you just gave fantasy rants a headache. He hates those pesky facts.
#20823 Oct 1, 2013
Can't deal with the facts, little bunny foo foo? Who said anything about facts being funny? Although, the fact that you claimed you were leaving the country, and that armed rioting in the streets would happen if Romney doesn't win, is kinda funny. In a desperate, losing side, never get one right, pathetic kinda way.
#20824 Oct 1, 2013
Also, pretty funny that you said I was like a parrot, shortly after I said you were acting like a parrot and copying my wording. So you in fact, parroted my comment about you being a parrot. Ahhhh ha ha ha! Nutball want a cracker?
#20825 Oct 1, 2013
You are as easy to shutdown as you are stupid...
Not my percentages, little bunny foo foo. Those are America's percentages. Don't you EVER forget that you are a sniveling, conniving lot that most of America can't stand. Now cry that the media is some kind of tinfoil hat scheme. Oh and keep your word for once and get the hell out of OUR country, you traitor.

Republicans aren't against birth control. That's just another lie by the lying liberals. What Republicans are against is forcing somebody else to pay for your birth control. Nothing is free. If I give you birth control for free, it just means somebody else is paying for it.
#20828 Oct 1, 2013
Many times? I guess one of those many times didn't include when he had a Democrat led Congress and Senate.
#20829 Oct 1, 2013
Yeah. Those facts really suck:
"The first in a series of articles examining the campaign promises Barack Obama made in 2008 and where they stand now.
It might be President Obama's biggest broken promise: closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay.
As a candidate, Obama vowed so many times that he would shutter the prison he called a recruitment tool for terrorists that he himself even noted how often he's promised to do so, in an interview with Steve Kroft shortly after he was elected.
In that interview in November 2008, Kroft asked Obama if he planned to "take early action" to shut down Guantanamo. Obama replied, "Yes."
"I have said repeatedly that I intend to close Guantanamo, and I will follow through on that," he said.
After three and a half years as president, Obama has not done so.
Shortly after being sworn in, Obama did sign an executive order that required that the Guantanamo prison be closed within a year.
"The detention facilities at Guantánamo for individuals covered by this order shall be closed as soon as practicable, and no later than 1 year from the date of this order," read the statement he signed on Jan. 22, 2009.
At the end of that year, in December, with Guantanamo still open and running, Obama accepted the Nobel Peace Prize. He said in his acceptance speech: "I believe the United States of America must remain a standard bearer in the conduct of war. That is what makes us different from those whom we fight. That is a source of our strength."
"That is why I prohibited torture," he added. "That is why I ordered the prison at Guantanamo Bay closed."
Five days later, Obama issued a memo that directed the defense secretary and the attorney general to prepare a prison in Illinois for the Guantanamo detainees.
The deadline in Obama's executive order passed, and still he hadn't shut down the prison. In March 2011, two years after he signed the order, Obama signed another executive order. This one set up a review process for detainees. The document sought to "establish, as a discretionary matter, a process to review on a periodic basis the executive branch's continued, discretionary exercise of existing detention authority in individual cases."
The White House also released a related four-sentence statement in Obama's name. It didn't mention closing Guantanamo, or even use the word Guantanamo.
Obama has run into plenty of opposition in Congress. Lawmakers passed a bill preventing federal money from being used to transfer Guantanamo prisoners to the United States. Obama signed that bill into law, even as he issued a statement that disapproved of it. The provision was part of a bigger military bill that Obama said was too important not to sign.
Republicans, in particular, say that Guantanamo must stay open to keep terrorists there.

Both parties knew it would happen this way. It's the reason DumBama wanted the shut-down in the first place and conservative talk show hosts like Michael Medved were against it.
#20831 Oct 1, 2013
Come on now. When has DumBama gave a ship about law?
Obama Administration Flouts the Law to Give Congress Taxpayer-Funded Abortion Coverage

You quote a change that has even happened yet. Here's the message I was responding to:
Obviously "Reality Speaks" believes that abortions have been receiving government funding all along. I was pointing out the Hyde amendment prevents that.
#20833 Oct 1, 2013
Make that: a change that HASN'T even happened yet.
Since: Aug 11

In essence the Federal Government is funding abortions with Tax Payer Money when you look at the whole picture and the technicality is that the Federal Government is saying politically that Planned Parenthood is using Tax Payer Money only to fund & pay their operating & adminstrative cost only with tax payer money which frees up Planned Parenthoods private funds which are used to provide & pay for the abortions which is why the Federal Government can say that taxpayer money is not being used and doesn't violate the Hyde Amendment which the Federal Government is politically correct to say that tax payer money is not being used to pay for individual's abortions which is another Federal Scam being funded & operated with Tax Payer Money by the Federal Government which is envolved in essence providing abortions but indirectly.
Report Shows Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz Got $650 Million in Taxpayer Funds
Family Research Council fellow Ken Blackwell commented on the numbers.
"Giving taxpayer money to organizations that promote and provide abortion, even if the money is not used for that purpose, frees up other funds for abortion purposes and gives the government’s stamp of approval to their abortion related activities," he said.
"By funding Planned Parenthood and their allies, we are unwittingly supporting an abortion organization and everything they do. When taxpayer money goes to abortion groups for any reason, it supports the work of the abortion industry. We should not let abortion companies benefit financially from taxpayer funds," Blackwell added.
Congressman Mike Pence of Indiana has sponsored the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act, which would bring an end to funding for abortion advocates and it has earned the support of pro-life groups and lawmakers.

Abortions represent only 3 percent of total services provided by Planned Parenthood. Republicans would deny the funds for the other 97% of Planned Parenthood's activities to punish them for offering that service to their clients. Even though (as you admit) they are prevented from using the federal money they receive to provide abortions.

That is so funny-"Yeah, those facts really suck" and they do, you shot yourself in the foot in the last paragraph.
