fta: Ryan also told reporters that "he 'is not really worried' about inviting the threat of another government shutdown,"

Was Ryan even alive when Newt tried this before? Does he know it's an election year?

I know you're not supposed to stop your political enemies in the middle of making a mistake but still...

FTA: He's got enough extremists in the House, still pissed off over the August deal and what they perceive as a cave-in by leadership on the payroll tax cut extension, to back him.

Boner said they got 98% of what they wanted! That means the only thing the Republicans didn't get was a payroll tax increase.

The repubs can see the handwriting on the wall: they're going to lose in November, and lose big. Under the circumstances, why not talke the opportunity to determine exactly how loathsome you can make your message (all women are whores, let people who can't afford health care die, nuke Iran and screw the consequences) and still keep the votes of the extremist twenty percent? It's a golden opportunity to tell the people you hate exactly how much you hate them and to punish the American people for not being willing to swallow the poison pill. The repubs love the pretend America that never existed except in their fantasies, but they hate the real America. All this government shutdown bullshiat is about punishing America for having the effrontery to elect a Democrat to the White House. They wouldn't stand for it in 1998, they won't stand for it now.

Next on the repub agenda: the return of militias and Oklahoma City Bombing II.

I'll tell you what, if you can provide a direct quote from Ms Fluke's testimony before congress where she asks for medical care or medication for free, I'll buy you a either month of TF or a case of cough drops - your choice. Otherwise, STFU, OK?

Difficulty: Free means FREE, not provided by insurance that she pays for.

Birth control pills are not just only used as contraception. They are used to treat medical conditions in women such as polycystic ovary syndrome. You can buy cough drops over the counter. You cannot buy birth control pills over the counter. It's not the same farking thing.

Gergesa: Well I suppose they could cut the military some more. I recall reading just recently an article excoriating the F-35 which costs if I remember correctly, a few billion to make. Couldn't you just cut the production of those by 4-5 and save a few billion?


The majority of the cost is in the design, test and evaluation. So if you cut the order by 20%, all of a sudden wow, the price per plane went up 20%! Time to cut more! The way that program and military procurement in general is ran is all kinds of farked up, but Congress goes in with that idea and just makes things worse. The B-2 is the extreme example. We could have probably gotten a lot more for not much more cost if we were somewhat smarter.

It is not remotely true based on current polling the dems will win big. In fact, the Democrats are a hairwidth away from losing majority status in the Senate and very unlikely to get control of the House. Due to redistricting, it'll probably be at least another two Presidential cycles before the Democrats get a substantial majority at the federal level unless there are huge changes in state-dustrict demography.

I don't want a GOP Congress, but they have a lot of state districting control.

FloydA: FTA: The question is whether they're delusional enough to think it's a good idea just months before an election, when they're already facing unprecedented disapproval numbers with the voting public.

You're kidding, right?

Any sentence that includes the phrase "are Republicans delusional enough to..." you can answer "yes" even without knowing the verb and have at least an 85% chance of being correct.


Can anyone really make a coherent argument that the Republicans are anything but screaming children right now? I mean, good grief, if any child of mine made this kind of temper tantrum in public they'd be grounded for the rest of their lives.
