"Engels took notes of the abuses he observed, notably child labor, the despoiled environment and the overworked and impoverished laborers and sent back a series of articles to Marx, first for publication in the Rheinische Zeitung and then for publication in the Deutsch–Französische Jahrbücher, chronicling the conditions among the working class in Manchester. These he would later collect and publish in his influential first book, The Condition of the Working Class in England."

As long as idiots like Boehner are (leading?) the Republican party, the debt ceiling issue will continue to be kicked down the road, just like the Democrats always do. But the conservatives aren't going away and you haven't heard the end of fiscal responsibility. After all, most people would prefer for government to live within their means, just like everyone else has to.

Not the bogus wars we have been starting. Again, that's the neocons like Bush, McCain, Graham, Ryan, Boehner etc. that pushed those stupid wars, open borders and free trade. Those are the people who the MSM backs as they vilify the Tea Party. The neocons and Democrats are the establishment who have brought our economy down with their insane spending and pandering, not the tea party.

What wars?

You liberals act like we are in a REAL war. We have some REAL battles from time to time, but al Qaeda is an unconventional insurgency.

You want to see a real war look at WW1, WW2, Korea or Vietnam. Real wars have drafts, and far more casualties.

Iwo Jima - 7,000 dead 19,000 wounded
Okinawa - 12,000 dead 38,000 wounded

Berlin - 81,000 dead Russians 280,000 wounded
90,000 dead Germans 220,000 wounded 440,000 PoWs most died in captivity.

You fight al Qaeda and you stand up to thugs like putin, iran, n korea and assad to prevent real wars from conflagrating.

barock, the appeaser invites aggression. Look at the Ukraine.

The strength of presidents like Washington and Reagan deter aggression.

Mr. barockochev, don't rebuild that wall.

Ukraine Defense Minister Pavel Lebedev has refused to take multiple phone calls made personally by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, the Pentagon said Thursday.

"Secretary Hagel has been trying, himself, since early this week," Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby told reporters. Lebedev refuses "to communicate, to accept a phone call" from Hagel or the Pentagon.

"We haven't been able to connect with anybody from the Defense Ministry there in Ukraine," he said. "We've been trying pretty diligently here in the Pentagon, we've been trying pretty diligently this whole week. I'd say it's pretty unusual."

Perhaps Hagel's team thinks that publicizing the fact that Lebedev is stiff-arming him — Kirby announced at the top of the briefing that Hagel couldn't reach his counterpart — will put public pressure on the Ukrainians to take his phone call.
