These Sheep people are truly pathetic!
Immigrant workers needed by many sheep producers
http://www.tsln.com/news/8196908-113/sheep-in...
Most immigrant workers who come to the U.S. to herd sheep learned the occupation in their home country. In contrast to pulling a tin roof over a rock hut in Peru, American sheepherders have solar power for appliances and live in a small mobile home they move from place to place. They also have cell phones and work alongside sheep producers during lambing, shearing, etc.

Over 500 sheep operations, representing one-third of the nation’s sheep production, depend on foreign sheepherders for their operation. Over 2,500 herders, mostly coming from Peru, Chile and Mexico, work in the United States continuously.

LOL...The House passed it and it's sitting in the Senate right now.

IF it passes the Senate and IF the Governor signs it, it will be struck down by the first court challenge.

I guess they're trying to make a statement, but it won't make any difference.

Boehner comes up with a new explanation for why Republicans shut down the government
by Jed Lewison
House Speaker John Boehner at a press conference on Friday morning, answering a question about what it will take for Republicans to reopen the government:
Listen, the issue right now is the continuing resolution to open the government, and all we're asking for is for Harry Reid to appoint conferees so we can sit down and have a conversation about bringing fairness to the American people and getting government open.
That was Boehner's entire answer, from start to finish. To end this shutdown, all he wants is for Senate Democrats to agree to sit down and negotiate a budget with him. Almost sounds reasonable, right?
Problem is, on Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid offered to do exactly what Boehner said he wanted—to appoint conferees to a House-Senate conference committee to resolve budget differences between the two chambers—but Boehner said no anyway.
Why did Boehner say no? Because Reid attached one condition to his offer: The government would have to reopen during the negotiations. Boehner couldn't live with that, so he said no.
In other words, when John Boehner says the only thing Republicans want is for Senate Democrats to agree to negotiations, he's not telling the truth. What he wants is for Senate Democrats (and President Obama) to agree to negotiate while House Republicans have a metaphorical gun to the country's head. And the fact that he can't come up with an honest way of articulating that position is a pretty clear indicator that even he knows just how weak it really is:

A: Neither. The "TP" is a small, extreme faction who have both hijacked and driven the Republican Party into the ground. If the media hadn't given them so much opportunity to spread their propaganda, they would have run out of steam by now.
I think you get that parroting on both sides, with the righties' rhetoric being much more speculative, or shall I say, hate driven fiction?

It's been building up all year. I was tasked to assist Army reservists in preparing their income tax returns for free. While assisting these guys I noticed that in their civilian lives they don't make much money at all. A large percentage lives with their parents and has no income at all other than their army reserve pay and even though they can get an all expenses paid college education, they chose to sit in their mamas basement playing video games all day long.

These guys paid nothing in federal income tax and with their earned income credit and other credits they were getting $3-7K returns. After I did like a hundred and thirty five individual income tax returns for free, I sat down and did my own. After having 20% of my income deducted for federal income tax, I ended up having to write a personal check to the IRS for an additional $275. Then I had to write another check to the state for $105.

Seeing hundreds of lazy people who pay nothing and have zero personal responsibilities getting almost as much back as I paid in kind of hit me in the gut. Then my sister, a lazy pig who can't quit smoking pot long enough to pass a pre employment drug screen, works as a cook for minimum wage. She has no responsibilities because her kids grew up and ran as far away from her as fast as they could move as soon as they hit 18 and she always bums from my mother. Anyway, she got a $9K tax return and when I reminded her that she still owes me $400 that I loaned her, she sounded like Rose after someone tells her to STFU. I haven't seen her since. She didn't pay the loan back either.

Then we got the planned furlough notices due to the sequestration which cut my wages an additional 20% and now the government shutdown. I mean dam! How can the HMFIC be so incompetent? He's giving money away to everyone but the working man.

I say Republicans in the House! Stand Your Ground!!! Keep this MFer shut down until the debt ceiling vote come up and then bend those Democrats over and stick it in DP style. Shut the whole thing down! Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, Military spending, and even the president himself. Can't pay bill with no money honey. Let's see if the leaches can hold out as long as us working class fools. Starve the bums!

So why aren't you bagging on Obama for extending the employer mandate out for another year?
That's right! You think it's alright that Obama changes the Obamacare law without even consulting with congress but if the house decides the Individual mandate needs a one year extension because Obama gave the employer mandate a one year extension, well the house is just being hardheaded.
It's the president who is refusing to compromise here. It's the Democrat President and the Democrat controlled Senate. They have said it twice a day for the past week. "WE WILL NOT COMPROMISE!"
This has NOTHING to do with extending the individual mandate for one year (and, WHY is the question in the first place - ya' know?). This entire pitiful episode is designed to overturn the ACA, and this sorry lot of Republicans in service to plutocrats has NOTHING with which to replace it. It's all about destroying the federal government by dismantling it to it's least effective and least benefit for average Americans (LIKE YOU, YOURSELF). This nation needs to work for the majority of us who WORK and CONTRIBUTE (or who did for our working lifetimes), and if you mistakenly believe that those who do are being served - NO, we're not if we don't fight tooth and nail to preserve every quickly vanishing gain we've made that grew a vibrant middle class in America.

You can't assign the blame to one man, but that's what we see happening here on this thread with no awareness of how corruption in Congress is at the root of all evil. They have sold us down the river, and one President can't possibly correct the imbalances, or even make them less egregious without bipartisan support and cooperation.

I honestly have never experienced anything like this last decade - from George Bush literally destroying our financial underpinnings with unfunded wars and give-aways to the rich (Dick Cheney's defense contractor friends)- to a Congress who refuses to compromise in its' desire to dismantle social welfare so necessary to free market capitalism. Don't you believe in the good of that model? Well, it requires much more than pandering only to the elite.

Dick Cheney suffers another hunting mishap

Ahead of the outing, though, the governor couldn't resist ribbing his teammate, tossing reference to Cheney's infamous quail hunting trip in 2006, during which he accidentally shot Texas lawyer Harry Whittington in the face. Mead's first order of business, he said, according to the Jackson Hole News and Guide, was to ensure Cheney had "sighted in" his gun properly.

You got that right! Each and every one of the socialists swore never to come back to this thread only to come right back within 30 minutes.
They crave getting their a**s handed to them. It's like they are masochists or something.
I swore off coming back here too and I took the thread off my tracker. Mainly because this thread moves so fast that if you go away for an hour there will be ten pages of reading to catch up with the conversation. I also hated seeing Rose make an a$$ out of herself with her out of control, profanity filled rants that has nothing to do with the topic being discussed. The socialists here are like that small friend everybody has who always picks fights with bigger people and expects his big buddy to have his back.
I even created a new thread just to give them a place of their own but it didn't give them anyone to hate on so they kept coming here only to go back there and complain about y'all over here.
I started looking at this thread when Jaxxon was complaining about some poster who he thought was me. It reminded my why I didn't like to hang around people like Rose, Jaxxon, NTR, Free or Chauncy. X -Man- acts more like the big buddy that feels obligated to cover their back but he doesn't really put any heart into it.
I decided to put this page back on the tracker when we started talking about Obamacare and the Individual Mandate that will give freebies to leaches and charge or fine hard workers who refuse to pay for two.
My so called friends decided that they were right and everyone else should shut up and accept it. When I refused to shut up they each started tossing insults at me so I woke the he!! up and decided that I was hanging with the wrong crowd. Leaches and Klingon's. That's all they are. Oh, and Masochists at that.
Hahhahahaha! You are such a liar, Ferrell.

I've seen you pull this same stunt a few years ago, playing both sides then settling into your dark and twisted true self.

Now you're trying to cover every lie and deceitful game you played.

BTW, I was never your friend. I had suspicions about you when I noticed how you contradicted yourself so much.

When I first started posting on Topix everyone warned me about Rose and her crew. They said that they would use me like an idiot and turn on me like a snake. I started to realized what they meant when we were discussing gay marriage and I was against it. OMG! They went crazy! Insulting my intelligence and calling me names until I told them that I was playing with them and started singing their tune. Then they were nice again. But I didn't forget it either. Same sex marriage is wrong as two boys FKING and you can't get any wronger than that.
I have been a silent reader since topix first went online and when I finally registered and started posting I experienced the same thing exactly and It took me a while to figure these goons out more thoroughly.
As far as the gay thing goes, I really don't have a problem with it even though I personally think it is as wrong as you say it is.

"You are the one who makes up stories about poor people who need help."

Refresh my memory. What story did I ever make up about "poor people who need help?"

I'm not mad at all. You, on the other hand appear to be stark raving mad and angry besides.

I'm laughing at you and what a neurotic mess you are.

The loser here is a person who needs to re-invent himself over and over again and work both sides against the middle just to get attention. Borderline personality disorder is treatable. You might look into that, or have one of your alter egos look into it for you. LOL!

As far as the funerals of our servicemen goes, I'll fire up the Harley, and join the Patriot Guard every time the Westborough Baptists apply for a permit to protest a local fallen hero.
Concur.. Actually I like my old 98 truck and both 91 and 96 harley's.. You got lucky when I was growing up we had dirt roads till a fire truck got stuck and then the county decided to pave all.. But that came with a huge price tag on your property taxes.. Same with trash pickup in Orange County Fl.. When I moved to Marion county they don't have trash pickup and found out I had to hire atrash company for 48 bucks every 4 months of service.. Either that or the option is to load it up in my truck and drive 20 miles to a dump site for free.. But at 10 miles to a gallon thats 4 gallons which would cost more..

Man sets himself on fire on the National Mall

A man set himself on fire on the National Mall in the nation's capital as passers-by rushed over to help douse the flames, officials and witnesses said Friday afternoon.

The reason for the self-immolation was not immediately clear and the man's identity was not disclosed. But it occurred in public view, on a central national gathering place, in a city still rattled by a mass shooting last month and a high-speed car chase outside the U.S. Capitol on Thursday that ended with a woman being shot dead by police.

The man on the Mall suffered life-threatening injuries and was airlifted to the hospital, said District of Columbia fire department spokesman Tim Wilson.

I posted that the government shutdown forced an emergency furlough and civilian employees were sent home without pay.
It was followed by a know it all who made a comment that all the federal employees would go home and get paid later but that was the last shutdown. This time they handed us a three page furlough notice, had us sign them and
told us to send in time sheets with four hours on monday, close up our offices and hand are work areas over to Active Component Soldiers. Attached to that furlough notice was a SF 8 that we were to give to the unemployment office. It really pizzed me off because those active duty Soldiers never do anything. They just sit around drinking coffee and BS all day. All the problems are sent to us civilians to take care of. They can't even do their own jobs without calling and asking me how to do it. Now they have my office and I'm sent home without pay? F that! The sequestration earlier this year already put me on furlough one day each week without pay. That was a 20% pay cut! How would you like to have your pay cut by 20%? They didn't cut my insurance premiums by 20%. They didn't cut my bills by 20%. The active duty Soldiers were supposed to fill in and perform my work during my furlough day back then too. But none of that happened! I came in after a day off without pay and had to clean up yesterdays crap before I started working on todays chit. No 20% cut on my workload either!
So no! I don't like what's going on! Don't like it at all! That's why I sold my livestock and feed. That's why I'm selling my equipment at auction tomorrow. I still have to pay my own way and I still haven't heard back from the Unemployment Office so I don't know if that's going through either.
Fk y'all Obama loving SOB's! Obama is supposed to be the HMFIC! Why can't he accept responsibility?
Where is the media? 3 million people signed up for federally insured unemployment benefits this week! Where is the news reporters? Oh I see! They are too far up Obama's stink hole to report what's really happening.
Will the taxpayers pay my health insurance premiums while I'm on a no pay status? Thanks a lot Obama! An honorable man would realize he is over his head and quit.
That just sucks. It really does. The system is full of holes, and you were allowed to fall through. It must feel like you're being punished for following the rules.
