Technically doesn't mean literally.
You and other teabaggers give the Prez far more power than he actually exercises. You think he has a list in the Oval Office and he went down it, "I'm closing this, this, and this, and leaving this, this, and this open." What an idiot.
I'll bet you were raising hell about Obama raising the price of gasoline earlier this year. So now he's lowered it to $2.99 around here, right?
The government chugs along on its own, and I'm sure there is a list somewhere of what operates or doesn't during a shutdown. The President is one-third of the government, not necessarily the final arbiter.
If he issues any executive orders, you'll be screaming "Dictator!"
Obama's had almost five years to come for your guns. He hasn't come for them yet.

Obama's had almost five years to ruin the country with his African socialism. The US economy has only been getting stronger.

Obama's had almost five years to surrender to the terrorists because he's weak. Yet bin Laden and a few others moulder in their graves.

Now, after five years, Obama has finally succeeded in shutting down the government. No. Wait. That's just another lie/mistake of yours, like the dozens of others.

Teabaggers and Republicunts shut down the government. They've wanted to see the President gone; by ballots, or bullets,or bills of impeachment. They are traitors. You must be one, too.

I believe the Sedition Act of 1798 expired in 1801.
An amendment to the Espionage Act of 1917, the Sedition Act of 1918 made it a felony (1) to convey false statements interfering with American war efforts; (2) to willfully employ "disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language" about the U.S. form of government, the Constitution, the flag, or U.S. military or naval forces; (3) to urge the curtailed production of necessary war materials; or (4) to advocate, teach, defend, or suggest the doing of any such acts. Violations were punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both. The law was aimed at curbing political dissent expressed by socialists, anarchists, pacifists, and certain labor leaders.
The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Sedition Act of 1918 over free speech objections made by civil libertarians. However, in a famous dissenting opinion that shaped First Amendment law for the rest of the twentieth century, Associate Justice oliver wendell holmes jr. encouraged courts to closely scrutinize prosecutions under the Sedition Act to make sure that only those individuals who created a Clear and Present Danger of immediate criminal activity were convicted (Abrams v. United States, 250 U.S. 616, 1180, 40 S. Ct. 17, 63 L. Ed. 1173 [1919]).
http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com...
The Sedition Act of 1918 was repealed on December 13, 1920
However, "[T]wo or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspir[ing] to ... by force ... prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States." defines the Republican Party today.

Didn't see that comma, idiot? As in "family, movies, and theatre"?

Nope, learned my perversions all by myself. Family had nothing to do with it; movies, maybe.

I don't participate in anal sex, but if I did, it would be more an exercise in power and dominance than sex.

Right now, I need to clean my guns more than bear them.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

I have to disagree with you on one factual point here, caveman. Osama bin Ladin is not "mouldering in his grave." The Navy SEALs fed his mangy carcass to the sharks in the Indian Ocean.

Instead of defunding Obamacare, why don't we try defunding terrorism?

Part of every dollar we spend on imported oil goes to fund Al Qaeda. A CIA official stated, "We are buying the rope for them to hang us."

Remember the hulabaloo about blood diamonds a few years ago? Well, every gallon of gas you put in your vehicle has a little American blood mixed in.

(Reuters)- A Tesoro Logistics LP pipeline has spilled more than 20,000 barrels of crude oil into a North Dakota wheat field, the biggest leak in the state since it became a major U.S. producer.

The six-inch pipeline was carrying crude oil from the Bakken shale play to the Stampede rail facility outside Columbus, North Dakota. The affected part of the line has been shut down, Tesoro said.

Farmer Steven Jensen discovered the leak on September 29 while harvesting wheat on his 1,800-acre farm, about nine miles northeast of Tioga, North Dakota.

Oil was gushing from the pipeline "like a faucet, 4 to 6 inches spewing out," said Jensen, who added that nearby wheat plants were ruined.

The leak did not pose an immediate threat to groundwater sources, Kris Roberts, who leads the environmental response team at the state Department of Health told Reuters.

At an estimated 20,600 barrels, it ranks among the biggest U.S. spills in recent years. It is the biggest oil leak on U.S. land since March, when the rupture of an Exxon Mobil pipeline in Mayflower, Arkansas spilled 5,000 to 7,000 barrels of heavy Canadian crude.

It comes at a time when concerns are growing over the safety of the U.S. pipeline network, which is pumping more oil than ever to bring shale oil and Canadian crude to U.S. refiners.

I stand corrected, then. I thought he was in an unmarked grave, which, in a manner of speaking, he is.

So he sleeps with the fishes.

That's terrible. But it explains why my limo was jerking going up a hill this morning.
