God Is My Co-Pirate: MrBallou: So he's saying he wants destroy the economy of the USA to break our will, so he can declare independence?

Hell, he doesn't have to do that. We'll help him and his idiot friends pack and give them a ride to the border.

Not our border, please. We're too full of turkey and pumpkin pie to deal with this nonsense right now.


I meant the East or West border and to drop them off a couple of miles beyond, with lots and lots of gold coins in their pockets.

ox45tallboy: TV's Vinnie: All this drama-queenery by republicans simply because the right wing just cannot STAND the thought of poor people NOT writhing in pain or dying. The level of sadism they have for the disadvantaged is staggering.

The question (in their minds) is actually far bigger than that - they see Obamacare as an expansion of the Federal Government, when they are working their asses off to shrink it down small enough to drown in a bathtub. It's not that they don't want to help sick people, it's that they see people dying as a necessary evil to enact their vision of government.

Obamacare is a diametrically opposite move to the direction they wish to take the country.


In other words, the right wing ultimately wants this:

Benevolent Misanthrope: LasersHurt: On the final day before the Debt Ceiling is met and shiat is scheduled to go haywire, I hope the President holds a prime-time interruption and announces an Executive Action of some sort to end this charade. Go over Congress' heads.

What, precisely? That's not a challenge, I honestly don't know what the Constitutin would allow.

Girl Sailor: Schroedinger's Glory Hole: Girl Sailor: My cousin had Obama as a law professor at u of c. No doubt, he was the smartest m-fer in the room no matter where he went. The u of c staff didn't like him, specifically the old (white) Friedman school of economics types couldn't stand him. Ironically, I bet the derpers would've got so much more traction if they attacked him as an egg headed college elite. But they couldn't get past the black, let alone admit it was possible that it was possible for a black dude to have a high iq. So now they're in this laughable corner. Smoked by an ivory tower elite that they couldn't even admit WAS an ivory tower elite.

That is why I voted for Obama. The opportunity to watch racist half wits contort themselves in circles trying to bully someone who sees them the way a pediatrician views a three year old. Enjoy The prison of your own Minds. The rest of the world will happily carry on without you.

Ebony Tower Elite?

Nice. Let's make that happen.

Btw - how do you know what's on the other side of schroedinger's glory hole?

How to fix the budget issue in less then 24 hours

1. Kick starter to build a guillotine on the capital lawn can only donate 1.00 at a time
2. All money for the kick starter after it's built goes to the national debt
3. for ever 50,000,000 in total donations the person that hits the magic number gets to pick one of the top 10,000 individual campaign donators from the last election to have his head cut off
4. For every 1,000,000,000 the luckey doner gets to pick a member of the house
5. For every 100,000,000,000 the winner gets to drag up a cnn, Fox News, or talk radio host to drag up strip naked castrate then cover in honey and dump a hive of fire ants on while slowly lowering into a vat of battery acid

So, if the 11th hour arrives ( and it sure as Hell seems like it will ) we can either:

-Give in to the extremists of the GOP, and set a horrible precedent.

-Get creative with a 14th amendment/other workaround, perhaps creating a different horrible precedent.

-Default...oh boy.

Personally, if 11th hour arrives I vote we purge the TP'ers from the face of the Earth: all TP representatives, staff, supporters, families, utilize every picture and database of protests, etc. I want a TP remembrance pool in Washington filled with their blood.

But I'm also bitter and spiteful, and best left far away from positions of authority.

whistleridge: Weaver95: sometimes I think the evangelicals read 'it can't happen here' by sinclair lewis and figured it was an awesome idea to turn the country into a corrupt war mongering theocracy.

Unlikely. That would require them to read something other than select chunks of the King James Bible, Breitbart/whatever freeper site they prefer, and all those obviously-fake-and-have-been-fake-since-they-were-first-used-with-diff erent-names-in-the-90s emails they insist on forwarding to each other.

well...actually, the tea derpers seem to believe that if they break the will of the average worker/voter in this country, then they can carefully rebuild society in their image.  which is of course stronger, pure and powerful.  the fact that they want to achieve this utopia over the dead bodies of the rest of us is simply a price they're willing to pay.  we're supposed to lay down and die to achieve this paradise on earth.

Apparently, they hate democracy, republics, and any form of government where they can't get their minority way.

They sure are good with excuses though - quantity, rather than quality.
