Suicide Caucus would be a great name for a death metal band.

Still tucking it in, Boehner?

Right wing media would go to derpcon 5 if he did that.

So with the walls of government falling down. Boehner could keep them them erect, but he's being limp wristed about it. They are really going for this half-cocked.

Seems the only way Boehner can keep anything erect is with handcuffs.  Not that I'm judging

Considering how many of these Congress critters hate the federal government in the first place, maybe the ACA was just an excuse. Maybe they want the government shut down regardless.

Rachel Maddow highlighted this article in last night's show.

It's still in clear why these 80 Republicans are allowed to control the policy in the House. Sure, Freedom Works could back an opponent in the next election but they risk losing anyway.

You could start by Googling the 80 members who signed onto the letter urging Boehner to shutdown.

Back off him man. He asked for a "smart farker" to help implying he is not up to the task. It is not cool to make fun of the admittedly daft.

So an article about the people "behind" the shutdown... fails to mention the anarchist who has promised to spend millions on a primary campaign against any incumbent who doesn't vote his way. The one who has stated over and over that he wants the federal government to be small enough to "drown it in a bathtub?" They really dug to the heart of this story, didn't they?

What I find interesting about this strategy is that actually doing it illustrates how dependent many families livelihoods are on a functioning government. Are individuals really ambivalent to food safety inspections and the CDC flu tracking? Do we disrespect our neighbors and fail to empathize when they don't get paid because they work in an office at the Social Security Administration or NIH or the National Cancer Institute or HUD and are therefore "takers"?

Honestly, yes. It's one of those things that people probably won't notice until it directly affects them.

I think that we're used to regulations being effective that we forget what it's like without them.

We're starting to see that with the fracking victims. They had this expectation of clean water even after opening their water tables up to unregulated fracking. Then they're surprised when they start getting brain lesions.

Build a man a fire and you've kept him warm for a day.
Set a man on fire and you've kept him warm for the rest of his life.

Listening to the furloughed employees being interviewed on the news this morning  I heard one woman proudly declare "I am a conservative" then start complaining that she is unemployed due the shutdown and was so hoping the reporter would say "well, this is what you voted for biatch"

I post on that blog, and Jay's a decent writer.  That post focused on the GOP Reps in the House that are responsible for Boehner's actions.  That guy's trying to hold on to his gavel, and his caucus is adamant about his adhering to the strictest of strict conservative ideology.  All you have to do is peruse the comment section to see how bad Georgia is ate up with that crap.
