Or has the Illegitimate Obama been promoted to Head Recruiter for al-Qaeda in the United States, since the Troll-in-Chief wants to negotiate with Iran, but not the Congress of the United States?

what's your authority for stating that the TP, or ANY PARTY, has either endorsed or nominated Cruz?
or, are you just making omments to appear 'smart' or simply one of the Progressive herd?
Q: which storyline do YOU support: the TP is done or the TP is in control of the Rep Party?
on the Progressive-leaning media, I've heard BOTH... as the situation demands.
from the Progressive pols(Reid, Obama, McCain, etc...), the SAME.
from the Progressive Topix posters, the SAME.
funny, ain't it?:)
Cruz is not a bad guy but I wouldn't vote for him for president.. But we will see who throws their hat into the ring and where my support goes.. I can tell you if will never be for hillary or biden..

LAWMAKER: OBAMA STILL BLOCKING HEROES FROM MEMORIALS
'What about our Vietnam veterans? What about our Korean veterans?'
A government shutdown nearly prevented World War II veterans from visiting the Washington memorial built in their honor, but Rep. Steven Palazzo, R-Miss., and several of his colleagues removed the barricades. Their actions allowed the veterans to experience the memorial and instantly made the site a focal point of the shutdown debate.

GOVERNMENT WORRIED ABOUT CITIZEN UPRISING
Exclusive: Patrice Lewis reveals why Big Brother is desperate to control Americans
...
This week it was reported that “The director of the National Security Agency says the agency collects data from social networks and other private databases to hunt terror suspects but is not using the information to build dossiers, or personal files, on Americans.” Uh-huh.
Additionally:“Top U.S. intelligence officials are revealing more about their spying in an effort to defend the National Security Agency from charges that it has invaded the privacy of Americans on a mass scale. Yet the latest disclosure – the NSA tried to track Americans’ cell phone locations – has only added to the concerns of lawmakers”[emphasis added].
Why is this happening? What’s with the government’s fascination – no, obsession – with keeping tabs on anything and everything we do?
There is endless speculation, of course, but ultimately it is to prevent a citizen uprising.
Like slave owners, our overseers are petrified that we will revolt. History has shown, over and over again, that a people can take oppression for only so long before they rise up in explosive anger. That is, after all, what the Declaration of Independence was all about. The American Revolution was a revolution against its own government.

Don't bring partison politics into this. Veterans are from a diverse political background, but that didn't stop them from all giving all for being an American.
This is the way the American Legion see's it,

Americans protest government shutdown via social media
http://www.thonline.com/news/national_world/a...
The public outcry playing out on social media sites this week is a new twist. During the last shutdown of government operations, in 1995, angry Americans would have had to look up their congressman's address and sit down and write an old-fashioned letter or email. But with the advent of Twitter, popular hashtags like #governmentshutdown and the "Today" show's #DearCongress let voters log their complaints to all 532 members of Congress at once — provided they stay within the allotted 140 characters or less.

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.
I observed the whole scenario as it took place and and also came to the same conclusion as you.
They simply had no one to hate on.
Some one said here that you are playing a game with me and even called it a "liberal plot". If you are in fact, I'd have to say that it has to be the best game I have ever seen played here and you have definitely earned my respect whether you are playing games or not. I really don't believe you are though. I think the both of us have these socialists figured out no matter what.
I also have to say that your research into this matter is nothing short of exceptional.
Members of my firm were actually taking bets on how that other thread would meet its demise in consideration of the fact that I absolutely don't use socks and that topix also knows that too.
LOL
I also think that we both know full well about the meaning of value, wealth, opportunity and aspiration which are foreign terms to many who post here.
BTW Thanks for your service bro. Your story was all too emotional and descriptive for me to doubt.
Some similar memories of mine are still just as vivid as if they happened yesterday.

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.

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.
