    It’s going to be a tough day for DHS federal workers if Congress doesn’t resolve the funding crisis. Many are facing the prospect of not being able to pay for rent, food or health care by this weekend–and all because the radical extremists (aka Republicans)in the US House don’t like the black man in the White House. Watch the weekend media try to make it the fault of ‘both sides’ of the aisle with the emphasis on Democrats.

      GM Jackie, the media can try, but I don’t think it is going to work this time. Boner is playing with fire here and he knows it. Suck ass GOP. on another note,
      GM Chips, NC (congrats on 1st), GE amk and GM aftica2.

      But it wasn’t both sides, it was one side it was the Republican side. And now almost an entire government agency is on the brink of being shut down and her workers shown into financial chaos. The Republicans are only doing what they always do and they aren’t going to change. The DHS shutdown was one of those driving into the ditch moments that President Obama railed about, the voters have had several opportunities to stop this madness but as always they voted against their own best interest. In my lifetime I’ve only put my hand on a hot stove one time, that’s all it took.

        Would that US voters were as smart as you, Don. Most go around in an oblivious haze, not knowing or caring what’s going on until it hits them in the face. Republicans have succeeded in demonizing the federal government, so if federal workers have to suffer, many will just shrug. According to the GOP/media all federal workers are just lazy bureaucrats anyway, so why should anyone care what happens to them. I’ve stopped trying to figure out what will wake people up. If there is something, I fear it will come too late.

    I read that Pat Robertson thinks that learning yoga will cause you to speak Hindi. So I’m wondering whether I could learn Spanish by dancing the salsa or French by learning to can can. Imagine how multilingual we could all become just by dancing and exercising.

      After that, we women could swallow a little camera and have our annual OB check done! Awesome! These guys need to STFU about anything that requires thoughts. At all. About anything…but especially women. However, I DO wish I could do learn another language like that:) What a wonderful thing that would be!

          You ever see that movie, “Bedazzled” with Brendan Frazier and Elizabeth Hurley as the devil? In one scenario, he wakes up in the morning to find that he can speak perfect Spanish. Yeah, I’d like that:)

            Never saw it, but it sounds great. Did Frazier have to sell his soul to speak Spanish or was that just a bonus?

        Sue, they will do this to any dem that is elected, just not so obviously racist. I am just amazed at the blinders that people have on as to what the GOP has done in the last 6 years to this President. I think the President is on full speed ahead and taking no hostages. DNC is all Hillary are they in for a surprise.

            It’s in our power to turn the Hillary express on its head and put our considerable resources and skills behind Joe Biden. We don’t need the DNC, the DCCC or the DSCC to do this. We know how to organize and get out the vote and we are all doers, not just talkers, as many of the Hillary group are.

    http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/sheriff-mack-gofundme-medical-bills

    Former Arizona county sheriff Richard Mack, a fierce opponent of Obamacare and a leader in the “constitutional sheriff” movement, is struggling to pay his medical bills after he and his wife each faced serious illnesses. The former sheriff and his wife do not have health insurance and started a GoFundMe campaign to solicit donations from family and friends to cover the costs of their medical care.

    “Because they are self-employed, they have no medical insurance and are in desperate need of our assistance,” reads a note on Mack’s personal website.

    Mack, the founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, suffered a heart attack in January and is in recovery. His wife fell ill late last year. Mack is on the board of Oath Keepers, a right-wing fringe group made up of police and military veterans, and is known for supporting Cliven Bundy in his standoff against the federal government. He is also an ardent opponent of Obamacare.

    Sorry. No fucks left to give. Because you hate the black President, you get to go bankrupt as far as I’m concerned.

      O’Reilly, 65, is one of the most influential figures in American broadcasting and publishing. He is paid a reported $20m a year to host his show, the O’Reilly Factor, which consistently ranks among the most-watched current affairs programs in US cable TV. He has also authored several bestselling books and memoirs.

      And doesn’t this sound like the truth – from the article above

      “Six people who covered the riots with O’Reilly in California for Inside Edition told the Guardian they did not recall an incident in which, as O’Reilly has claimed, “concrete was raining down on us” and “we were attacked by protesters”.

      Several members of the team suggested that O’Reilly may instead be overstating a fracas involving one disgruntled Los Angeles resident, who smashed one of their cameras with a piece of rubble.

      Two of the team said the man was angered specifically by O’Reilly behaving disrespectfully after arriving at the smoking remains of his neighbourhood in a limousine, whose driver at one point began polishing the vehicle. O’Reilly is said to have shouted at the man and asked him: “Don’t you know who I am?””

        This man is just full of himself. Made up lies as he went along and as no one questioned them, he made them bigger and bigger. And he has thousands who believe his every word. He is just a lying liar.

          Considering that he works for a station that has perfected lying to an art form and one that is a required feature, not a bug, he will be praised by Roger Ailes and probably given a raise. I read this morning that because of his lies, now ever MORE people are watching his show. BrWi ,bad. Billo, great. Got it. We are so screwed.
