        Doing just fine. Am trying to catch up again. I have been out off & on all day. I saw the Chiefer clip, I am sorry, he was not very effective. He really didn’t go at with Cornyn, Cornyn was lying the whole time. No back lash at all. So the cheering on CBS, I don’t think is warranted.
        I am ready for the bed too. Another busy day tomorrow. Will stay for a bit. go back down thread.

          I’ve been all over the village today, never completing one thread in sequence, but hopping back and forth. The drawback to that of course, is that my knowledge of what went on feels incomplete. Ah well – tomorrow is another day. Sweet dreams when you do decide to go off to bed!

          I didn’t think Schieffer’s token challenges and push backs went far enough either.

          I didn’t watch it. These guys/gals accomplish their goals of lowered standards very effectively IMO. They do nothing to push back against GOP craziness most of the time, so that when they pay lip service their viewers have been so starved for truth they embrace them gratefully! My response to regular media is ‘enough already’ – you are unprincipled and I don’t trust you. I don’t dance when they throw their pennies my way because I know they’ll revert to their nothing reporting before I catch my breath.

    Thank you for the new thread, UT. Kind of you to include one of my tweets, btw.

    Congrats on 1st, VC – I made sure to stand well away from the door as I carefully tethered it open for you 🙂

    Bottom line ….

    This is for ALL the marbles, my dear TODers. ALL of them.

      Mr. Bobfr, I totally agree. They are going ALL OUT because they are in too deep. Too much money and lose lips are going to start flapping. They are sinking fast while digging deeper shit holes for themselves. It is a shame that so many people have to suffer. But it has been long overdue for a wake up call. The saddest part of all is that still a reminisece gets it….so sad.
      So glad that we have you here.

        “It is a shame that so many people have to suffer.”

        That is always the tragedy. Innocent, striving, loving folk harmed by the avaricious few – bane of humanity since our race began emerging from the Serengeti plain ….

    I’m leaving this here for Dudette. I haven’t seen her yet today and knowing she likes dance, I’m pretty sure she’d get a chuckle from it (though she may have already seen it).

      Awww, that was ADORABLE, vc! Thank you so much!

      Had a crazy day yesterday. My Dad had to be rushed to the hospital yesterday morning with chest pains and difficulty breathing. Luckily, by the time the ambulance got him to the ER, his symptoms had mostly subsided. Within a half hour or so, he was smiling and joking with the nurses. The ER docs didn’t like a couple of things they saw on his EKG though, so they kept him overnight and called for a consultation with his heart doctor.

      After leaving him and Mom at the hospital, I went home with my sister to help her w/ her school work. She decided to go back to school to finish her degree. Don’t know what possessed her to take the outrageously heavy load she’s taking this semester. The woman had 4 online exams, 1 project and 3 papers to write over the weekend, in addition to studying for a mid-term today! Needless to say we were up until the wee hours this morning. Fun times!

      Anyway, I’m about to head back over to the hospital on my way to work. Would appreciate your prayers today.

      Be well, friends!

        ‘Would appreciate your prayers today.’

        Dudette, hon, you’ve got them! Hope you all (dad, mom, sister, nephew and {{{you}}}) will feel the power of our support today and the days ahead! Hope dad continues to bounce back and that docs will address whatever they’ve seen. Be assured you’ll be in my thoughts. Blessings!

    O/T – I really don’t like that new Twitter “interactions” feedback, something like “X retweeted something somebody said about you 14 hours ago that you can’t even warm up to now, and retweeted to others in which you were mentioned, who can’t remember, either.” Do you?

    Y’all are on fiyah! Have been in and out; much like PBO, in that earlier graphic, I’m tired of this GOP (giveoutpoop ) poor, poor human behavior and reckless lack of concern for life forms in general. I hope and pray a way is found to end it tomorrow. So, with that, goodnight, thank you, sweet dreams, and many blessings! {{{TOD}}}

      of course these racist and privelged “liberals” never talk about how president obama protected many of the most vulnerable populations in his deal-making back then. people who were in great jeopardy from republican cuts at that time. these fake liberals seem physically incapable of giving the dark-hued president any credit for his historic levels of success. wonder why that is…hmmmmm…(nevermind, i know exactly why that is.)

    This is a serious situation, but love the irony in this story:

    ” … What is ironic is that Congress in shutting down the government has to at least to some extent given up the power of the purse to the executive branch. Under the broad guidelines of what constitutes an emergency or threat to life or property, OMB now more or less decides what gets funded and what doesn’t. But that latitude is limited by the fear of officials that, sometime after the event, a given decision is found to have been in violation of the Antideficiency Act … ”

    ‘THIS IS EXTORTION PLAIN AND SIMPLE’

    Watch This for 22 Seconds and You’ll See Why Obama Can’t Give an Inch

    BY JONATHAN COHN

    ————————————————————-

    House Speaker John Boehner went on ABC News “This Week” to make clear his position: Republicans won’t give the government new borrowing authority until Democrats agree to negotiate about Obamacare and fiscal priorities.
    .
    .
    The key exchange takes all of 22 seconds, starting at about 12:25 in the video above. It goes like this:

    STEPHANOPOULOS: What the president says is he believes that the consequences of negotiating again over a debt limit and re-creating a cycle of crises are worse.

    BOEHNER: Every president in modern history has negotiated over a debt limit. Debt limits have been used to force big policy changes in Washington. And guess what, George? They’re going to be used again.

    Boehner is wrong on the history. Congress has increased the debt limit in the course of passing other legislation—the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has a nice review of recent legislation—and sometimes one or the other party made a big fuss about it. But, as Thomas Mann and Norman Ornstein explain in their acclaimed book, It’s Even Worse Than It Looks, until recently officials in neither party seriously threatened to let the government default on expenses it had already incurred:

    Boehner Urges G.O.P. Unity in ‘Epic Battle’

    By JONATHAN WEISMAN and ASHLEY PARKER (10/4/13)

    ————————————————

    Democrats say they simply cannot trust the speaker to deliver. Mr. Reid said in an interview in his office on Friday that Mr. Boehner came to him at the end of July with a proposition: If Senate Democratic leaders could accept a stopgap spending measure in the fall at levels that reflected across-the-board spending cuts, the speaker would refrain from adding extraneous measures that could precipitate a clash.
    .
    .
    On Sept. 12, in a meeting of the top four Congressional leaders, Mr. Boehner said he was running into problems with a conservative groundswell demanding that a gutting of the health law accompany any spending measure. Mr. Reid and Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, suggested a procedural step that would allow the House to vote on a stopgap spending bill with a side provision removing funds from the health care law that the Senate could strip out before sending the spending measure to the president.

    Again, the speaker agreed. And again, he could not carry through, Mr. Reid said. “If I told him I would do something, I would do that,” the Senate leader said.

    “Tea Party Republican Dennis Ross Admits that the GOP Shutdown is About Pride”

    http://www.politicususa.com/2013/10/05/tea-party-republican-dennis-ross-admits-gop-shutdown-pride.html

    ——
    Dennis Ross, a Republican representative from Florida since 2011, admitted that the GOP shutdown is all about Republican pride, “I think now it’s a lot about pride.”

    Ross is one of the most conservative House members according to the Club for Growth, and he is the first Tea Party member to say that he would support ending the five day GOP government shutdown with a spending deal that didn’t include changes to ObamaCare.

    “Republicans have to realize how many significant gains we’ve made over the last three years, and we have — not only in cutting spending but in really turning the tide on a lot of things,” Representative Dennis Ross, Republican of Florida, said on Saturday. “We can’t lose all that when there’s no connection now between the shutdown and the funding of Obamacare.”

    He added: “I think now it’s a lot about pride.”
