Oh yeah, government shutdowns have worked so well for republicans in the past! And right before an election? Way to tell the whole country you can't even do the bare minimum.

If there is one thing you can count on the GOP for, it is negotiating in good faith.  They can be depended on to blow up deals after you've given them what they want.

I've had enough of fascists calling mainstream Americans "the radical left" and claiming that rejecting fascism is "insane."

James Thomas Hodgkinson should apologize for not having better aim.

"If Biden & Democrats don't use this government funding bill to address the border crisis immediately,..."

There is no crisis at the border.

There is however, several crises in the domestic economies of several C.American countries that, if aided and addressed by the US government, might lessen the number of people presenting themselves in desperation at the southern border.

So let's recap. Republicans are:

Defending espionage.
Forcing women to birth corpses.
Trying to stop student loan forgiveness.
Kicked off a resurgence of polio.


And now they want to destroy the economy. Right before an election cycle that's already turned against them.

Oh, it's that time of the year again, time for the annual "Let's threaten to destroy the country's economy for political posturing"

That other farker was right, they play this game every year, and some day, they're going to fark it up and cause irreparable damage.
At this point, it's just tired. Just do it already, call the farking bluff, and then if/when you get the reigns of power back, patch this shiat.

The weird part?
Give it about an hour and there will be multiple comments from the Usual Suspects here on fark that will ignore everything I said and insist that nothing will happen and we should just give up and die.
Then they'll get furious at me for ignoring them.
At no point will any of them admit they actually agree with me.

The measure also includes roughly $12.3 billion to aid Ukraine amid its conflict with Russia.


If the GQP shuts down the government, it would really be just absolutely awful if some bad ass Ukrainians took a

break from the battlefield and came over here to "hash things out" with the House Republicans.

Why would he apologize?

I don't mean why a normal person would, I mean a Klan member.  They love being old schooly racists.

He says this knowing full well that if every Democrat votes in favor then the bill passes. This way he can go back to his supporters and tell them how he stood up against the Democrats while not having to tank the economy by doing so.

Voters who don't wear pants on their heads will not view favorably the Republicans' continuing attempts to destroy America.

Outlaw abortion, then destroy the entire world economy.
I wonder what happens when SCOTUS can't pay their security people anymore?

Because they didn't negotiate with Granger? That coont was one of the esteemed "Let's spend July 4th in Moscow" crew. And she got her son hired as head of the biggest grift in the US right now Panther Island project because he couldn't exactly say what it was he did there.

How big of a grift is it? Creating an island on which to create a bigger, better downtown Fort Worth (making private landowners billions) and then billing it as a flood control project so the gov't will pay for it. Fort Worth barely has a damn river, much less a river capable of creating a god-damn island.

See for yourself.

Sitting here in Tucson, about an hour from the Southern Border and I don't see any signs of crisis here. Nobody has even come to my door to offer me Fentanyl yet.

In fact my biggest worries involve the insane MAGA minority driving around with their stupid trucks and silly flags promoting fascism and Maricopa County trying to screw with my vote.

/yes, there are a lot of people looking for a better life but that is kinda what the border to the USA is all about

Give him what he wants. Include funding to double or triple the volume of immigration judges. If need be offset it with a reduction of funding to ICE

He's right.
We should shut down the government the next time a major hurricane hits Louisiana.
 
2022-09-29 1:55:24 PM  
If the GOP shut down the federal government, then anyone with government protection is going to lose said protection details when the money stops flowing.
And everyone who depends on a government paycheck will also be really pissed off at the GOP.
Did we mention that a big important election is about to happen soon?

The vote record is public.

As usual, if the GQP shuts down the government the headlines will be GQP Shuts down Government.

They never learn on this one.

True...A few months ago I went to Mexico via land...The Federales  sitting around a table
waved us in and smiled and we walked over to a good restaurant, had a good meal..Shopped a bit..Walked around..It was quiet as a small town can be..Just a few people a couple of local cars on the streets..
No teeming hordes of surly, disease ridden criminals or anything..The only surly people were the CPB
people..And they need to get that cactus out of their ass and get over themselves..They are the
"DMV" of Federal agencies..Slow, surly, and mad that you even bothered them...

And GOD FORBID you carried your passport in the same pocket you dropped change and a dime gets stuck in the pages....

Since Republicans are a minority in both houses, their tantrums can't have any effect unless they have help from Democrats. Ignore their whining and just pass the farking bill
