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.
Did you see Carney, WH spokesperson, trying to play they wanted a bi-partisan solution. This after a couple weeks of out right hostile remarks they NOW want to play like they were above it.

The government didn't need to be reopened because there was never any government shut down. It was all a hoax.

For someone who never faced that decision you should really STFU.

Clinton avoided the draft but he was not a war mongering jackass like Karl Rove & Dick Cheney & George W. Bush.

The Vietnam War was not about defending our country. It wax a stupid war based on a stupid theory that we pretended to wage. When going to war, take the whole team. The entire situation was avoidable in the 50's.

I was in college & sat in the room with20 guys watching them draw numbers. If your number was under 160, you were f*cked. College deferments for most in that room would run out before the war was over.

I recall one of those in that room was a kind gentle divinity student. Drafted. Then dead. He had no business being in war.

I don't blame those who try to avoid the Vietnam draft. I only blame those that did that & then went on to be hawks.

Me, I put my name in the draft but wasn't chosen.

Those that didn't live it should be judges of those that did.

Nothing Carney says surprises me. Absolutely nothing. But, then again, he's thrown to the wolves without having a clue what's really going on behind the scenes.

Obama seems to like it that way.

But gotta go watch my show. For real this time.

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.
Davey is hyperventilating as the Dems are still in shock they took a hit in this debacle too.

Also, Dems are not being smart and came out swinging MORE spending-a big loser for the Dems.

Don't feed their doldrums by over reacting yourself.

I was willing to let the Senate give an inch to allow the Rethugs to save face but am delighted to see they held firm and offered no concessions. That really is what needed to happen to end the obstructionist tactics of people. They needed to suffer an embarrassing defeat to make them humble. Cruz really should apologize to his party for going against Republican leaders and pushing to dismantle Obamacare and he should apologize to America for the shutdown.
Senator Richard Burr (R-North Carolina):
“Let’s just say sometimes learning what can’t be accomplished is an important long-term thing,” Mr. Burr said,“and hopefully for some of the members they’ve learned it’s impossible to defund mandatory programs by shutting down the federal government.”

I figured they would have to give in somewhere... and that's not a problem.

But with the current agreement, they simply kicked the can down the road.

No, I'm permanently in the no spin zone. It's my keen wit and sarcasm that's probably making you feel dizzy.
By the way, I got to see O'Reilly and Miller in person last weekend. Watching the Factor will never be the same again. O'Reilly can be really funny - and we were actually in the same place together.
I was the only one in the entire theater who waved shamelessly as he was walking off the stage. Think he even acknowledged it with a smile in my direction.
Now I can die happy.

Oh no son. The cons in the House did shut down government. They certainly didn't push through any 'clean' bills for funding.
