(Washington Post)   On the one hand, government gets shut down, millions are temporarily out of work, services are cut, total chaos that eventually results in Japan falling into the sea. On the other hand, glorious victory for the Democrats for the next 20 years   (washingtonpost.com) divider line 76

If that happens, they can come to America.  We've got tons of space.  We'll just give them North and South Dakota.  Not like anyone would miss those two states.

But this is what needs to happen, though. And then as a result of increasing global tensions, World War III begins. There's a period of darkness, then a period of rebuilding, and then the Vulcans arrive. We're moving along right on schedule.

Obama has the bully pulpit, and the triumvirate of failure that is Boner, Cantor and McConnell have even less political deftness than Gingrich. This didn't go so well for Gingrich.

No, you see subby, it's Obama's fault for not defunding Obamacare.  Just you watch, he'll never get elected again.

Well, we already know about his plot to use urban gangs to impose martial law, thanks to the tireless reporting of Orson Scott Card.

And it won't even stop Obamacare.

I'd say Republicans are cutting off their nose to spite their face, but that nose is long gone.  I think they've graduated to gouging out their eyes and prying out their teeth one by one while they shriek, "YOU LIKE THAT, FACE?  HUH?  HUH?  THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT, biatch!"

Who would be blamed for a government shut down? The media would see to it that the first, middle, and last answer to that question "Not Obama", in spite of the fact that under the current plan it would be 100% his fault or the senate Democrats fault.

Republicans: "We're going to fund all of the government except ObamaCare"

Democrats: "They're trying to shut down the government by funding the government... Er we mean, they're shutting it down over ObamaCare!"

If shutting down the government is such a HUGE problem for liberals then they can agree to fund the government but not ObamaCare or they can choose to shut down the government because they're that hung up on destroying the economy with ObamaCare.

The good thing is that most of the country is not nearly as obtuse as you are. They will blame Republicans for opposing Obamacare, because Obamacare is the law of the land. Republicans do not get to dictate what laws to fund and not fund just because they rigged the election systems in their states to give them an outsized voice in the House. In the words of Eisenhower, "Their numbers are negligible, and they are stupid."

Obamacare is already funded regardless of any government shut down.  Republicans need to pass a law to defund it, and are willing to hold our country hostage to get their way.

But you already knew that and you're just here to be wrong again.

The GOP leadership failed to deliver their number one priority of preventing Obama's second term and I am now beginning to believe that they are so incompetent that they couldn't keep Obama from getting a third term.  Yes I know he can't server a third term, that's how incompetent I believe them to be.

1. There's lots of things recently that have made me feel old- but realizing that Eva came out roughly twenty years ago somehow makes it all the more real...

2. No surpises we don't have Evagelions given they weren't entirely technology-based, but as for the mobile suits, we've discovered neither Gundarium or Minovsky Particles. We could honestly probably build a RB-79 Ball without too much difficulty, but there's not a particular need for it. The Mobile Suits were, IIRC, originally developed in space anyway- and since we don't have a proliferation of space colonies being oppressed by the Earth government and in need of a weapon with which to launch a rebellion...

3. Yeah, I MIGHT be a bit of a nerd... but still... 20 years? Damn...
