House Republican leaders say Democrats are hypocritical to blame them for the gridlock and chaos. They point to a series of bills approved with Democratic support that are parked in the Senate with no action. They say Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) should let senators vote on them.

That's a bullshiat argument.  There's worlds of difference between Harry Reid not putting things up for a vote in the Senate which have no chance of getting passed and Republicans refusing to vote for their own bills in the House.  Harry Reid at least isn't blocking things he himself says need to get done.

This is actually making me feel better about the possibility of the GOP taking the Senate. Yes, nothing will get done. But then again, nothing will get done.

The GOP can't even pass its own bills.

Couldn't the House us a photocopier to make copies of these bills, stamp them with HR and then have the House bring them up for discussion and a vote? I mean, why does the House have to wait for the Senate to do anything?

The GOP taking the Senate is very worrisome. Court appointments being the biggest problem.

I hope people get out there and vote their asses off.

The silver lining is the GOP seems to be going out of their way to energize the Democratic base with all their nonsense.

Not teaching these clowns a lesson at the polls is dumb... Winning more elections and seats will just encourage more nonsense from the GOP.
 
2014-08-01 10:04:57 AM  
How many times have the GOP killed their own legislation now? They are a bunch of cowards who stand for nothing except being dicks. How can the Democrats (much less President Obama) work with congressional Republicans to pass legislation when the Republicans can't even do it amongst themselves?
 
2014-08-01 10:05:01 AM  
Makes perfect sense to me. It is in the best interests of an individual Republican candidate to get himself elected, but not put his party in the position where they are in charge. As long as you aren't in control you can do nothing and blame it on the other guys.

Government Shutdown III: The Longest Recession

Perhaps you are right. Maybe we need for EVERYONE to see what happens when the Federal Government is rolled back and all the services and infrastructure that make this nation truly great are neglected or removed. Imagine. A State's First Nation with no Interstate Highways. No Federal Border protection program. No drug laws. No Interstate Commerce protections or regulations of any kind. No Clean Air regulations. No Business regulations. No Federal Defense or military programs or bases. No electricity lines. No internet lines. No water (which is sort of a big deal out West). No more National Forests or National Parks. None of that pesky passport thing when traveling.

Let's do this. What else you got? What else do we lose if the Feds become a 2nd tier to the States?

Congress then places all the blame on Obama and 2016 is lost to some guy like Santorum. People in this country are just that stupid.

Rick Perry is b*tching about lack of federal support on the border of Mexico while his party is stonewalling Obama for money. Obama does many GOP supporters a favor and delays the ACA rollout on businesses, and they f*cking sue him for it.

The people in most commenting forums say the most insane sh*t I've ever read. I honestly can't tell if they are trolls or seriously that f*cking retarded. I mean seriously, Rapture type stuff. I'd love to respond to them but I don't feed trolls and I don't want to join whatever stupid site they are posting on.

I mean we are seriously living in Crazyville.

So much this.

When every single bill being debated in the House is a poison pill directed at making the President and the opposition look bad, intelligent people with serious intentions of actually getting shiat done to address real-world issues aren't going to play along. They'll throw up their hands and go back to their Spider Solitaire and talk amongst themselves about finding a workaround.

Thusfar, the GOP has gone to extraordinary lengths to fark the system up as much as they can. It is sheer vandalism and atavism. There is no intention of doing the job, they're just in it for the bucks and to wreak as much havoc as they can. The Speaker is a hard core drunk, an awful lot of the members of the House are former lobbyists for tobacco and oil and banking Corporations, and an amazingly large number are either ideological Fascists or are slavishly going along with those that are (Louie and Michelle and Darryl, I'm looking at you) just because they do not have the basic intelligence to comprehend the nature of the job and the legal framework they are required to adhere to. The GOP resembles nothing less than a gang of drunken chimpanzees with machine guns.

And the folks that vote for them stroke their Wal-Mart Barbie-doll rifles and wave their Confederate flags while calling themselves the party of Lincoln, and pray to the Great blue-eyed White Aryan Jesus to come down and rid Real America of all the unclean brown animals and pointy-headed inteelectual types that keep messing things up for them by telling them no.

We're farked.

It makes you want to grab the typical Republican voter by the shoulders, shake him vigorously, and say, "Look, I know you disagree with our policies, but do you really prefer to send massively incompetent, blatantly disturbed people to Congress to represent you? You do realize, these folks are actively working against the best interests of your local community, don't you? Wouldn't you rather have someone in Congress trying to do what's best for you as he sees it rather than somebody so obsessed with ideology that he's willing to watch the country burn rather than compromise on even the most elementary issues?"

But of course, that is exactly what they do prefer. It would be fun to slap them around a little bit, though.

Space Station Wagon: How are we losing to these idiots?


Brainwashing, stupidity, religion (sorry that's redundant I already said brainwashing), denialism, senility, and lots and lots of money changing public opinion. Also? Gerrymandering, voter ID, general vote suppression campaigns.

Let me tell you a little story.

There's this massive douchenozzle in my area, Chad Barefoot. He's a real piece of work.

Here's his district:

www.indyweek.com

As you can see his district carves up the eastern half of Wake County (Raleigh, NC), taking most of the more rural areas of Wake, and also has most of Franklin county. This is of course gerrymandering at its best because much of Wake County is blue, but it's created to be just red enough that this district went for him in 2012 by 10 points. That 55% mark is what the GOP did in the state, make a bunch of districts which would go by 10 points or so, and then a couple of throwaway districts that would go 80% democrat.

Now, during the 2012 elections, this guy literally owned the airwaves on TV. He had major money coming in for his election. He's not even a player at the federal level, just a state senator. I don't know how he afforded all that airtime. It was probably some monied asshole like Art Pope. But this kind of stuff happened all over the state. And his opponent? I don't think I saw his opponent's ads more than once or twice.

Now for me, well I live in a different area of the county. But I know a lot of people watch these ads and vote on their 'gut' by which I mean whoever has the most air time on TV.

As a sidebar, gerrymandering is crappy in a lot of ways. For example, when your districts go 80% democrat, those democrats who win the primaries tend to be the guys who toe the party line the best, and generally the parties themselves are corrupt institutions. So the people coming out of those districts aren't exactly who you want in office either.

No it's an actual grammatical sentence. If capital b Buffalo refers to a city in New York and lower case buffalo refers to a large quadruped and a verb meaning to "confuse or intimidate," then

"Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo."

Means "Large herbivorous quadrupeds from Buffalo who are confused or intimidated by other large herbivorous quadrupeds from Buffalo themselves confuse or intimidate large herbivorous quadrupeds from Buffalo."

Here is the sentence again with the verbs highlighted in bold:

"Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo."

Actually, I did know that...but I'm feeling silly on a friday morning just prior to a 3 hour meeting, and the cadence of the badger song got stuck in my head so I thought I'd share.

2014 is the last stand for these idiots. People are getting healthcare coverage, watching reds stumble all over themselves. I would also hope that Florida changing its G-mandering will cause other states to do the same. Seriously, let's get some more lawyers to sue the states for their terrible district decisions, and in the Age of Information let's get computers to even everything out. Oh yeah, I guess that wouldn't be as beneficial for Republicans... too bad.

They're using it in the sense of "the government works better when it does nothing." I'm using it in the sense of "At least the GOP is too dysfunctional to inflict any extra crazy above and beyond not doing their jobs."

"Feeling better" is less an indication of my feeling good about it and more an indication of my being less terrified.

For what? So they can squander that, too? So they can spread their rank incompetence at all levels of government like greasy jock spooge on a drunk cheerleader in a high school post-homecoming gangbang? F*ck these people.

I live in Wisconsin. I do not affect the outcome of the Senate. However, I know that all those 2010 red seats are up for reelection in 2016... a presidential year. I do what I can to influence the people I know and to encourage them to influence the people they know; we need it here, with Walker's reelection on the ballot in November. I am not a part of the problem, but I'm looking ahead to when we can start our solutions.

After all, it's not like Congress is going to do anything from here to there anyway.

We need to give the liberals move lattes to get over this voter fatigue.

Ow! That was my feelings!: Triple Oak: Ow! That was my feelings!: Space Station Wagon: How are we losing to these idiots?

Triple Oak: 2014 is the last stand for these idiots.

These comments help illustrate the Dems problem. You have an increasing number of Democrats declaring victory long before the fight is over. Demographics might make a permanent Democratic majority inevitable, but you still need to get people into the voting booth. Declaring victory and sitting on your ass will, at the least, delay the 'inevitable'.

I live in Wisconsin. I do not affect the outcome of the Senate. However, I know that all those 2010 red seats are up for reelection in 2016... a presidential year. I do what I can to influence the people I know and to encourage them to influence the people they know; we need it here, with Walker's reelection on the ballot in November. I am not a part of the problem, but I'm looking ahead to when we can start our solutions.

After all, it's not like Congress is going to do anything from here to there anyway.

I live in Colorado. A state that was trending blue, but not anymore. Mark Udall should be stomping a mudhole in Cory Gardner, but he is fighting for his political life. That shouldn't have happened, but Democrats screwed it up in Colorado. Nothing is inevitable.


On a state basis, I haven't a clue what will happen here.

Nationally, Republicans only have so much power based on one thing: lies. Get those districts redrawn, let's see how well their ideals hold up.
