I want to see them getting into fistfights on the floor, like they do in other countries.

Wow. Politics tab and getting fully run out. I knew there was a reason I avoided this place.

One of them being that when in the politics tab, just as in real politics, quoted dollars and cents mean nothing. They are all imaginary to politicians.

Might as well finish my popcorn now. I'm not staying up that late.

you're never gonna see Anderson's Pooper if you go to bed that early

Stay closeted, my friend.

nah, if I were gay I'd be out by now.
My family is pretty tolerant about that sort of thing

Except for you, apparently.

except for me what, nitwit?

Yeah, I'M the nitwit here.

yep, you sure are. Except for me what, Cam, you farking nitwit?

Oh boy I do enjoy tweaking brittle people. Why am I a nitwit?

nah, what you enjoy is making stupid statements and then trying to avoid backing them up.

I enjoy seeing you fly off the handle at the drop of a hat. It's great fun. Didn't take much to set you off.

Using an insult you can use in front of your grandma is now flying off the handle?
Yep, you're a nitwit alright. A nincompoop too


Yup. You insulted me without me provoking you in the slightest. How sad is that?

Thing is, at this point Democrats dont really care about spending. They like spending. They've spent the past 5 or 6 years successfully convincing the public that the only reason the sun comes up in the morning is on account of government spending, stimulus and QE. When it fails, it could have been worse and thank God we had it because had we not, the whole earth would have split into two pieces.

They see debt as a good thing and despite every credit agency in the world announcing that the US may be unable to service its debt, they place the blame on the scant few who are actually fighting to lower the debt. When the Democrats have re-written the narrative to establish that debt, unsustainable spending and government stimulus is the best way to operate an economy, history be damned, then anyone who seeks to lower debt is automatically the enemy whether their plan works or not.

Still, an argument against a proposal on the basis of funding is a weak one. You argue its mertis, not whether it suits the bean counters.

I hope to hell the House vetoes or significantly amends that piece of crap and gets to work on a comprehensive solution. Better yet I would like to see the House pass a Simpson-Bowles type bill and send it back to the Senate. This shiat has to stop.

Doesn't "do nothing" accomplish that?


All he knows is he can rant about democrats for any bill less than perfect and dismiss criticisms by playing bsrb.
