They tried to fund the entire government, with just a few exceptions. Unfortunately, obama and his Democrats, plus a couple dozen RINO Republicans aren't interested in getting their spending in check.

All I said was they wanted it scaled back and you apparently agree with me..........Are we both high?
By the way the debt is going down. First time in over a decade probably........
You're living in a bubble if you aren't aware that Republicans, and especially TP Republicans, have been calling for a government shutdown since at least 2010. You would have to ignore the speeches - available on your favorite video compiler - calling expressly for a gov't shutdown. You would have to be oblivious of those coming out of that meeting on Sept. 30, all grins and thumbs-up, when it was determined that a shutdown was imminent. You would have to be ignorant of those saying, on camera, "We got just what we wanted." You would have to be ignorant of the quiet, last-minute "minor" change in House rules that now prohibited anyone but the Speaker to call a bill to a vote.

You can say they're resolute, courageous, maverick, or any number of gushy superlatives.

But you cannot say Republicans didn't want to shut the government down.

Not truthfully anyway....

And you're the perfect representative of Tea Party evasiveness. Everyone has witnessed you "hint" at this or that, and when challenged, you bat your big doe-eyes and say, "Wha? I dint say I bleeved that, I wuz jus sayin'...".

The Tea Party/You are the epitome of the proverbial man that farts and points at the dog.

Right you are, disagreement isn't hate. However you go far and beyond disagreement with Christians IMHO. When you say things like you won't give an inch, we've taken miles in a time where Chrisitans are being jailed, killed and tourted in parts of the world (no shock media wont cover it) it's way beyond meer disagreement.

Maybe Christians need a new tactic by going back to their beginning. This piece was recently published. See what you think.
===
As the “who’s in and who’s out” debate -- recently criticized by Pope Francis -- storms on within the church, many voices declare that all would be well in America if we could just return to “conservative Christian biblical values.”
But they’re fighting the wrong battle. In fact, they might actually be a part of the problem, not the solution.
Jesus isn’t after restoring America as “Christian” or getting back to the good ol' days.(Side note, by the way: it really bothers me when people say they want to get back to the “good ol' days,” as if white people owning black people as property and women being seen as second class citizens was somehow “good”.)
When you read Acts, the story of the early Church, you see that Christians had zero governmental power and never pushed political agendas.
The “if only” mentality is everywhere.
“If only we could go back to when Christians were the majority.”“If only we could go back to when gay marriage was illegal.”
The problem I have with this “if only” mindset is, Jesus never spoke of such a thing. Never once do I read the New Testament and see Jesus saying,“You know what would be nice, Peter? If you get a bunch of people to get prayer into public schools!”
In fact, it’s almost as if Jesus assumed that the normal societal powers would dislike his followers because the usual tools of the state (manipulation, fear, coercion, even death) seemed peculiarly ineffective against the disciples.
“Christian” literally means “little Christ.” So, if we say we are a Christian, we are to be a little Jesus -- attempting to emulate his behavior and language. That means if we want to bring about change in our cities, schools, etc., we need to look at how he did it.
Did he say,“Let’s make sure the 10 Commandments stay in the courthouse!”
Or…
“Man, if only they stopped saying 'happy holidays' and really stood firm on 'Merry Christmas,' the world would be a better place.”
No.
When you read Acts, the story of the early Church, you see that Christians had zero governmental power and never pushed political agendas. In fact, they were even seen as enemies of the state in some regions.
The Roman Empire didn’t like this group of people who worshipped an executed Jewish rabbi. They were the rejects, the mess ups, the marginalized, and the broken.
No one looked at the first Christians and thought,“Oh yeah, they are definitely going to change the world!”
But they did. They turned it upside down.
The question is, how?
I’d argue by the power of forgiveness, reconciliation, and sacrificial love.
Well, take gay marriage for example. How about instead of trying to legislate morality and do everything in your power to vote gay marriage down, you walk across the street and invite Chuck, your gay neighbor, over for dinner?
Ask him how you can serve him. Ask him how he’s been hurt by certain ways of thinking. Ask him how you might be a good neighbor to him.
Because let’s be honest, the tides are changing and we are no longer the moral majority, but rather the prophetic minority. And personally I’d like to be known as the minority that shows love in such a way it turns the world upside down.
If the “religious” people of the day are spewing the same charge against us as they did in Acts 17 (see below), then we are probably doing something right.
“These men who have turned the world upside down have come here also [….] and they are all acting against the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus.” Acts 17:6

And the American voters. You forgot the voters. They blame the TP too.

This shutdown needs to end. An agreement needs to be reached and the Tea Party has to accept the fact that they're not going to get anything close to what they wanted. Bandage up your hands from pressing down on the hot stove, take the offer of free milk and cookies served to House members on Tuesdays, sign on the dotted line and stop this charade. It's done too much damage already and the GOP has lost valuable opportunities to point at the excruciatingly embarrassing trainwreck called Obamacare chugging over the horizen and reminding the public it's all the democrats fault the thing even exists. Make the dems pay for that blunder. And do it now. Pull the trigger when you have a target.
Keep pointing at Obamacare and keep blaming the democrats.

George Bush, Queen Elizabeth, and Vladimir Putin all die and go to hell.

While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for.

The devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.

Putin asks to call Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he is finished, the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes him a check.

Next Queen Elizabeth calls England and talks for 30 minutes. When she is finished, the devil informs her that the cost is 6 million dollars, so she writes him a check.

Finally, George Bush gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he is finished, the devil informs him that the cost is $5.00.

When Putin hears this he goes ballistic, and asks the devil why Bush got to call the USA so cheaply.

The devil smiles and replies, "Since obama took over, the country has gone to hell, so it's a local call."

You have a lot more faith in obama's stenographers than I do. They're not going to report things that hurt this regime, they'll find a way to spin it in his favor... just like they're reporting the obama shutdown, and blaming Republicans.

You can't keep poking holes in the frigging ship, bobin and not take responsibility for sinking it. Cruz and his pals are about an inch from being hurled into the sea, frantically waving their arms for rescue and you'll still be telling me that is what they promised their constituents.
You'll have to pardon me for a minute while I ROTF and laugh my head off.

When you say things like 'Christians are being jailed in parts of the world', as if Christians are the ONLY ones being jailed, you go far and beyond the limits of profound mental impairment. In this 'part of the world' it's not Christians who face jail for holding their faith...it's everyone else, against whom Christians are attempting to legislate so-called Christian morality...which is pretty friggin' far from Christ's.
