The magic of the machine and Fact-checking...

"Some say this isn't an election about ideology, it's an election about competence. Well, it's nice of them to want to play on our field. But this election isn't only about competence, for competence is a narrow ideal. Competence makes the trains run on time but doesn't know where they're going. Competence is the creed of the technocrat who makes sure the gears mesh but doesn't for a second understand the magic of the machine."

Frankly, boxing matches aren't my thing. So I'm actually relieved the gloves have come off and that part's over.

Now we can sit back and watch the show - don't know if it's a tragedy or comedy - it's another surprise.

Talk to ya' later, Homer. The Five is on.

By the way, there was never any government shut down. It was all a hoax. 87 percent of the government remained unaffected. And we need to cut that 13 percent. The govenment cannot possibly avoid collapse at the current spending levels.
I must have missed all those various 'clean' bills of theirs.

Or the cons in the House must have completely ignored anything anyone else said.

I vote for the later.

You have some problems reading and comprehending the written English language.
I never said the Republicans planned to shut down the government. I suggested the government be shut down until it grows up and can do the most basic things every other government in the entire world does like budget itself. Even countries like Nigeria can generate a budget. Our government is more incompetent than the government of Nigeria.
There was no government shut down. It was all a hoax.

Be honest for a change eh?
Don't know who Pastor John Hagee is. And, no, didn't read the post or see the link.

However, the scriptures are clear about some of us leaving the earth in the clouds somehow before the tribulation.

But I also happen to believe Moses and Ezekiel were "taken up to the sky" in a UFO and we're all somehow linked to ETs.

Doesn't change my fundamental beliefs whatsoever. Still believe Jesus was sent from God to tell us we have to love and forgive each other and to offer hope and salvation to those at the end of their rope...and, of course, that God is the source of all creation and the universe.

But some of us are definitely going to leave this earth somehow before the you-know-what hits the fan.

So what was your question again?

This time I hope it's not another Democrat hoax government shut down. The government needs to be shut down until it grows up.
How about we shut the government down until a budget is passed and signed. Until a budget is passed and signed, nobody in the government gets anything, no welfare checks get sent out, no money gets spent whatsoever until a budget is signed.
How about that?

Islam is very anti gay__but not, definitely not, anti abortion. You can learn all you want at Islam on Abortion and those, cough, guidelines are widely misinterpreted throughout the Islam world. India for instance, where women seek sonograms to learn sex and immediately abort females in order to save dowry dollars.
Life is cheap eh? During the first four months__but then who's really counting?
Strange you are using India as proof as their main religions are Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism and Sikhism

Look up H res. 368, passed undercover by the republican house members on Oct 1, to stymie any attempts of anyone beside the majority leader or, his appointee the privilege to bring forth a vote on reopening the gov't. Also look up rule 22;4 of the standing house rules so you can see how they put the freeze on any progress

Boehner won.
He knew they could never get defunding or delay of Obamacare. He knew he had the votes to pass a lean CR before the Oct 1 deadline. But if he did, then Cruz, Lee & the Tea Partiers would say how they could have stopped Obamacare but that mean nasty Boehner stopped him.
They would be out this year pushing Tea Party candidates in the primaries.
So Boehner gave them the rope & Cruz ETAL hung themselves out to dry showing not only how stupid they were but how dishonest they were.
" Oh No we didn't shut down the government, Obama did"
The American People outside a few Tea Party morons knew this was a lie.
They know that was not how Congress was supposed to operate.
Instead the Tea Party painted themselves to be morons & painted Congress as dysfunctional - dysfunctional because of the TeaParty.
It might hurt the non wacko Republicans in the fall elections but it will help them fight off tea party challengers in the primaries. After the primary, gerrymandering will keep their seats.
John Boehner planned this out & he won. He kept additional Tea Party members out of Congress in 2014 & likely throw some existing tea party seat holders out.
Kudos for John Boehner.
Boehner is a Democrat wearing a RINO costume. How long have I been saying that? Since January, 2011, right? Any doubt about that now?
He leads the Republican's 5th column.
