I am beginning to think that the republicans (especially the old ones) have lost their cotton picking minds.
Celebrity Death Match: Republicans vs Democrats, it's sad, it's hillarious....
The American government lost sight of what their main function is to the American people. Like any job they are suppose to secure, protect, and handle the funds like a business. It has nothing to do with being a party, but once in office their job should be for the people (mass) not for the elite. The people whether republican, democrat, or independent have allowed them to play party lines. In some many ways we are also at fault for what they have been doing for years. It has come to this that they are telling us that our voices are not important unless, you fund them, are above the seven person who control this country, or they just don't care about the majority of the people that don't fall in that catergory. It's power they have it and the rest of the 93% don't matter. It's just my picture of the status in who has the money and who doesn't.
Greed from our politicians and miscommunication from our houses
It sounds like doom day to me.
so the power to "shut down the goverment" is had by the republicans, and not the president? i dont understand
Why should I care?....Australia is Doing REALLY WELL!
i do not no any more then you no sorry ?
i dont think its the republicans, i think its the radicals.
The democrats are unhappy with some of the things that have been slipped into the bill by the republicans, like defunding NPR, planned Parenthood, Obama care,.. Republicans are upset because Obama will veto the bill to ensure that our soldiers get paid, even though all the politicians are going to get paid. It pretty much boils down to planned parent hood. The democrats believe that funding planned parenthood is more important than paying soldiers. Obama called the bill to make sure the soldiers are paid a "distraction".
The Republicans are pandering to the Tea Party. They are making unreasonable demands of the Democrats. Every time the Democrats agree to their demands, they add more demands. This makes it obvious that they want to shut down the Federal Government. The Tea Party wants this because they hate the Federal Government and would like to abolish it altogether.
The last I heard there was supposed to be a hostile takeover by the FCC until the webmasters guild told them where to go .
Strike up the circus music; its all there for your entertainment. Enjoy it, because the tickets are costing you far more than you might imagine.
The damn fools are having nothing more than a ******* contest at our expense. Shameful.
