PAID VACATION FOR 800,000+ FEDERAL WORKERS!!!!!!

The House voted UNANIMOUSLY to give all federal workers an INDEFINITE PAID VACATION until the shutdown is over.

These are the SAME non-essential federal workers EVERYONE complains about with our bloated government.

And now they get a-

PAID VACATION!!!!!!!

The titanic (republican/tea party) has hit the iceberg (shutting down the government). The only question now is whether the republicans can bail off this ship or decide to go down with tea party.

i would say that over the past four years or so the republican party has clearly shown they are out of touch with both the US electorate and reality.

the question is; can real conservatives in this nation find a party to call their own that these far right wing dipshits won't latch onto...

Well the real question is; Will these same conservatives realize it is not about ideology or party. What is the best way to accomplish the work of the country. That does mean working with the other side of aisle. That last is a political reality.

So now it is day 5, and still no problems with the shut down. Obama is getting edgy, and he doesn't know what to do.

Actually many republicans are looking for a way out.. willing to work with the democrats..
House Now Has The Votes To End Government Shutdown, But It Won't
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/02/clea...
"WASHINGTON -- Less than two days after the government shut down, there are now more than 17 Republicans who say they're ready to pass a bill to fund the government with no strings attached, giving the House the votes it needs to pass a clean funding bill."

That is 17 republicans willing to work with the democrats.

Have you ever been right about anything.. No, I didn't think so.

This is what happens when you place all your problems in Government's lap. If you are taking care of yourself it doesn't matter if the Government does something stupid. When do you think the government Marketplace will be ready? Democrats are so stupid/

Fox in its confused way is lost as to how to make any of this look good. So when fox is lost for a good spin. Dazzle the fools with bullshyt. Thus fox faithful believe it all.. Entirely. As though their messiah Ayn Rand and that other guy for peace has come handed it to them on a golden communion offering plate.
