Occupy Wall Street is about fairness and rights… the tea-baggers tried to destroy our Nation’s Capital as they rioted and destroyed government property as they tried to terrorize Blacks and Hispanics by spewing racist bigotry and waving the confederate flag. There was trash everywhere, and police were assaulted as there were even reports of a few women almost raped. The police should have taken down many of those in that mob… I wish I were a police officer in DC this past weekend.

I do not blame you for saying this, you have to run cover for our ***FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT*** who denied treatment to cancer patients to suit his political ends.

What did Boehner and Cantor and company do
Cynically cut them out by shutting down the gov't...
Cynically restore the funding for political gain....

If they hadn't shut down the gov't for no obtainable reason...they wouldn't need to restore funding

The President of the United States of America did the right thing,

Obama said no. Obama could have said yes in this instance, he chose to say no for the sake of politics.

Sorry, no reason NOT to sign the funding bill. This helps proves my case as to how Progressives place little value on people, just their egos and ideas.

You are being really cute with that last line. Every child knows what is going on
Shut down the whole govt so that you can kill the bits you don't like.

Then fund only the bits you do like....
After that why would you give a damn about opening up the rest ...
you would have what you want...killing the parts of gov't you don't like
You don't give a damn about anything but winning and this stuff is so transparent that any adult would be ashamed to say it in public.
No one is fooled the public blames the GOP

Can you imagine what's going to happen when the Obamacare program has similar problems, which has already been for-told by the online computer registration cluster-bungle?
Rioting? Really? If you think this was a riot i would hate to see how much you would shit yourself in a real riot.

I do not blame you for dodging Obama's hypocrisy.
.
I was unfair his mom died, it is okay for other's moms to die to advance his political career.
.
There was no reason for Obama not to sign several funding bills the Republicans have passed. There is NO law and I repeat, there is NO law in the Constitution that says funding must come in an omnibus bill. If the White House needs a box of paper clips, Congress has the right to provide money for just 1 box of paper clips.
.
Sorry, Obama is dead wrong on this one.

Please explain how Obama is denying cancer treatment. You wouldn't want Topix readers to assume you are full of excrement, would you?
