Some Tea Party-Backed Lawmakers Yield in Obamacare Fight

The first cracks are appearing in the Tea Party’s push to dismantle the nation’s health law as three House lawmakers with ties to the movement said they’d back a U.S. spending bill that doesn’t center on Obamacare.

Republican Representatives Blake Farenthold of Texas, Doug Lamborn of Colorado and Dennis Ross of Florida, all of whom identify with the Tea Party, said they’d back an agreement to end the government shutdown and lift the debt ceiling if it included major revisions to U.S. tax law, significant changes to Medicare and Social Security and other policy shifts.

And Yosemite, and all national parks and monuments, I believe. Obama didn't do it; these are the areas that got shut down because Congress couldn't work for the people and get it together. That's how it works. People were forced out of the parks. Same thing happens on the state level.

Redskin is first recorded in the late 17th century and was applied to the Algonquian peoples generally, but specifically to the Delaware (who lived in what is now southern New York State and New York City, New Jersey, and eastern Pennsylvania).

Redskin referred not to the natural skin color of the Delaware, but to their use of vermilion face paint and body paint.

A little history lesson sheds light on the origin of the name.

Back in the day, pro football team nicknames often derived from the name of the local major-league baseball team. So the Chicago Bears played off the Cubs. The Detroit Lions hearkened back to the Tigers.

Now let’s examine the likely origin of the “Redskins” name.

When the franchise originated in Boston in 1932, the baseball teams were the Red Sox and the Braves.

“Redskins” is a clever combination of them both.

Nothing more than that.

For those saying that the Redskins org is sponsoring any of the polls of support, just Google “Redskins”“University of Pennsyvania”. You will find that Penn conducted a poll asking Native Americans directly if they found the name of the Washington Redskins football team offensive. 90% said they did not find it offensive.

If/when a consensus of Native American’s come out to say that they are against the name, then this is an issue. But when 90% of the affected group state that they support the name, than I think the white, black and other non Native American’s really need to drop it.

Stating things like “clearly the word Redskin is racist” is ignorant. You will find that when it was used negatively (as in the quote in this article) that other terms were also used negatively in that writing. There was a long period of time where any writing about Native American’s in America used negative descriptions.

Throughout history, it is difficult to find too many uses of the word in the same vain as other racist slurs. Generally most historical references refer to Redskin in the same vein as “Warrior” b/c it described the war paint used in battle not the actual skin of the Native Americans.

Finally, we know that “Indians” is offensive, yet no mention to get rid of Cleveland’s name. Cowboys slaughtered Native American’s by the thousands yet no outcry that ‘America’s Team’ celebrates these rapist and murderers.

If you’re going to get change names ‘for the sake of Native Americans’, you better not forget the other very offensive names in the league.

Funny how it’s mostly white liberals who are offended by the name.

To non-liberal people, the word “Redskin” conjures up the image of a fierce warrior who was willing to fight to the death.

Looks to me like liberals are the true racists.

There is a new Confederacy who's cloaked as the tea party. Same hate for blacks, president & federal gov't.

The only difference between the old confederacy and the new confederacy is that the new confederacy did what the old confederacy could not... shut down the Federal Government.

How has it come to this, a wing nut whack job Canadian, Ted Cruz, being allowed to hold the U.S. public hostage?

Seven stupid things the gov’t spent money on during the shutdown
[5.] Not closing parks near Democratic senators’ houses. <<--<<<

1. Federal agencies created new websites to tell visitors that they don’t have enough funding to run their old websites.

2. The feds shut down the parking lot of Mt. Vernon, but not the park itself.

3. A D.C-area canal is closed and had all the pumps taken off of it.

4. Angry moms launch full-scale assault to reopen D.C. turtle park.

5. SEE above!

6. Posting park rangers at the WWII memorial to prevent rogue veterans from getting in.

7. The DoD is postponing the Navy-Air Force football game.

Maher is an anti-American Mercedes Marxist hypocrite. Here he is mocking the people that kept his Jewish azz out of Auchwitz. And that's really not funny, it's just sad.

Alan_Watts @ Snooper
Obama, Maher, and the entire cult are 100% devoid of any concept of honor, chivalry, or patriotism. There was once a time when these Marxists would have been imprisoned for treason. I miss the U.S.A. We need a 21st century Joe McCarthy to root these subversives out of our society.

Snooper @ Alan_Watts
Absolutely correct Alan.
America was at its best in the 1980s in many ways, too bad the liberals ruined it.

The Russians released the Verona papers which proved McCarthy was right about communist infiltration of our government.

A Closer Look Under The Bed
A review of Reds: McCarthyism in Twentieth-Century America, by Ted Morgan

From about 1955 to 1995, the dominant opinion in the United States held that the American Communist Party (CPUSA), founded in 1919 in the wake of the Communist revolution in Russia, was a small collection of admirers of the Soviet Union that never amounted to much. In the 1930s (so the story went) they mobilized a number of "popular fronts" to oppose fascism and promote various leftist causes. In the 1940s, a few Communists—probably Julius Rosenberg and (arguably) Alger Hiss—went so far as to commit acts of espionage on behalf of the Soviet Union. But Rosenberg was executed, and Hiss went to prison; so why all the fuss about domestic Communism?

Far worse than such rare cases of misplaced loyalty (in this view) was the damage wrought by opportunistic politicians who seized on the existence and supposed misdeeds of the CPUSA to alarm American public opinion and ruin the reputations of innocent liberals. One of the earliest such persecutors was Congressman Martin Dies, a Texas Democrat who in 1937 persuaded the House of Representatives to create a Special Committee on Un-American Activities, which became a standing committee in 1945 and lasted for 30 years, hounding Hollywood actors and many other victims.
But by far the greatest villain among Red-hunting politicians was, of course, Wisconsin's Republican senator Joseph McCarthy, who raised the issue of Communists in government in February 1950 and rode it triumphantly for four-and-a-half-years, acquiring an immense popular following, until the Senate itself voted to "censure" him in December 1954. He died, of liver failure induced by alcoholism, in May 1957, at the age of 48. By the 1960s the CPUSA, reduced to a few thousand members, had been almost wholly superseded by the New Left, and barely survived to see the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.

That was the story of American Communism and its foes, as successfully propagated by the nation's dominant liberals, and it remained, as we have noted, the conventional wisdom for forty years. Indeed, it is in some ways the conventional wisdom even today, for younger generations (including many conservatives) have never heard any other version of the facts.

No kidding! I actually listened to the Secretary of the Interior who was interviewed on NPR, Day 2 of the shutdown. Prior to this shutdown, he had to make some hard decisions relating to the SEQUESTOR, which included closing some services across the nation in our national parks. His decision to close down the areas around the Jefferson, Lincoln, and mall area of Washington DC had ALOT to do with security, and less to do with inconveniencing visitors. As you all should know, 2 weeks earlier, a shooting happened at the NAvy yard, which has heightened the DC police and security details in that area. The Secretary of the interior explained that on a nearly daily basis, Washigton DC is a target for some sort of terroristic threat,( DOES ANYONE REMEMBER THE PLANE THAT WAS CRASHED INTO THE PENTAGON???) He made the decision to close down areas of the mall, because he simply didn't have enough personnel to keep both tourists safe and buildings safe....
Idiots from the far right should be congratulating him on saving MILLIONS of taxpaying dollars. Instead, they are whining that places are now closed. Well, send John Boehner a box of pacifiers! Wasn't it the TEA BAGGERS who wanted government dismantled?
Well, great! lets just begin with closing the parks, historical monuments, etc. After all, they are just "fluff" anyway, and we don't really NEED this part of our government....right???
How hypocritical of the far right wing to belly ache when services they whined about are now closed.....what did they think they were asking for....temporary closure of the rest rooms???
Ted Cruz and his ilk are such ninnyhammers, they wouldn't know which end of a pencil to use if someone didn't show them. I am so ashamed of their behavior in our Congress. They show the world what complete idiots they are.
They got what they wanted, and now they are throwing a tantrum.
How completely professional of them!
They are infantile and impotent, and most are illiterate. Currently, the war memorial is open....with a skeleton crew of security....let's hope some bi-polar off his meds doesn't decide to open up on all who are visiting right now....
It isn't like the Secretary wasn't thinking about all that when he made his decision.....and BTW, he didn't have to ask Obama for permission.
Great post.

One fact that seems to have escaped many people on the far right is that there are real consequences, and real costs, associated with shutting down the federal government.
----------

Government shutdown: What's the cost?

Shutting down the government could cost the federal government well over $2 billion dollars if it resembles the last shutdowns in 1995-1996, though the economy would be harmed in additional ways that are nearly impossible to measure.

The Office of Management and Budget estimated that two government shutdowns in 1995 and 1996, totaling 27 days, cost the federal government $1.4 billion. That's over $2 billion in today's dollars...

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57605387/...
----------

They support the strategy of holding the government hostage to get what they want, but they don't want to accept responsibility for the cost and the inconvenience.

It's the height of hypocrisy.

They want to have their cake and eat it too...
