"We have people here that are 80 and 90 years old and they closed down all the bathrooms?" said Tony Nussbaum, a 25-year veteran of the Air Force from Iowa and a leader of the state's Hero Flight group. "I'm about to just start pissing on the trees."

If you want to do something useful, how about you storm the Capitol Building and pee on some congressmen?

An old friend, who has been active in politics for more than thirty years, told me yesterday that he was giving up. "I can't stomach what's going on in Washington any more," he said. "The hell with all of them. I have better things to do with my life." My friend is falling exactly into the trap that the extreme right wants all of us to fall into -- such disgust and cynicism that we all give up on politics. Then they're free to take over everything.

Make no mistake: Ted Cruz and his Tea Party followers, and the Koch brothers and their other financial patrons, are relishing this shutdown. They're delighted that 95% of the Environmental Protection Agency is down, so polluters can do whatever they want; that 80% of the Labor Department is down, so unscrupulous employers can trample on their employees; that much of the Securities and Exchange Commission is down, so corporations can have a field day. And they'd like nothing more than a default on the nation's debt in two weeks, because the resulting financial chaos will cause even more of us to become angry and cynical. That's the point: They feed off of anger and cynicism.

Our response should be the opposite: We will not give in to bullies or intimidation, and nor will we give in to cynicism about what our government needs to be and who it needs to serve. We will remain engaged and active, and push every member of Congress as well as the President to remain steadfast.

If you didn't want to piss off Veterans, you would not have tried to have your way by attaching unpassable legislation to the CR. Go f*ck yourselves. Own it.

Serious question.

The World War II Memorial on the National Mall became a political battlefield Tuesday, with conservatives excoriating Democrats for the monument's closure as they escorted busloads of war veterans past bewildered park rangers and into the shuttered monument.

The real question is 'who will win the messaging war?'

Marcus Bachmann is so gay, he makes an orgy featuring Liberace, Freddie Mercury, Caligula, and Elton John look like an Amish church service.

"It's the president's [fault]" the memorial is closed, Kirk said. "He's having a long temper tantrum. He thinks he can instruct the country that we should all spend money and raise taxes just like he thinks and I think he's absolutely incorrect. He's shaking in his boots that people actually experience Obamacare and they will never vote Democrat again."

I am sure this is way too much to ask, but can they at least try to have their bullshiat they feed us be semi logical?  Obama is so scared of Obamacare being implemented that he is refusing to let them delay and/or kill it?  Really?

Yeah, especially since all of the healthcare stuff is not part of the discretionary spending this shutdown is about.

Of course, the reporter was quick to tell this moron exactly what you just stated, and also followed up the interview with a factual listing of what will actually occur under the ACA.

Sid_6.7: Yeah, especially since all of the healthcare stuff is not part of the discretionary spending this shutdown is about.


I'm also sure this was pointed out.  If there's anything we can count on, it's the media not allowing morons and asshats to get away with saying any ol thing.

Respectfully, sir, the bathrooms are closed because no one is supposed to be there.  They didn't anticipate octogenarians at the gates.

You know what else is down? E-Verify. That means employers can't hire because they can't verify employment eligibility. I'm sure they'll find some way to blame October's job numbers on Obamacare, though.

If you ever want to commit suicide, but just can't seem to get up that last little bit of courage to do it, just read facebook comments about anything political. Anything at all. You'll be happily slicing open a vein and waiting for sweet oblivion in no time.

I'm sure the same people who laughed at Occupy protesters being pepper sprayed are going to laugh at old men getting tasered for screaming at a cop.

These would also be the same people so terrified of Black Panthers standing outside polling centers, whom I assume will be equally dismayed at GOP security operating the national parks.

I'm pretty sure that Fox News told these veterans what to believe at least a day before the shutdown actually happened.

All of these people and companies should be aware that the laws haven't changed.  All that has happened is a suspension of active enforcement.  All anyone has to do is keep a record of evidence, and when the shutdown is over, the companies are screwed.

If default happens, those companies have a lot to lose as well.
