You're a grand old flag
You're a high-flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave
You're the emblem of
The land I love
The home of the free and the brave
Ev'ry heart beats true
Under red, white and blue
Where there's never a boast or brag
But should old acquaintance be forgot
Keep your eye on the grand old flag

An official statement from the white house used the phrase "obstructionist losers".

What reality is this.

I wanna smash Mitch McConnell in the face with an anvil.

.. Did McConnell just vote "no" and then start his scolding? Or did I misunderstand the no vote part?

He voted no so he could bring it up again for reconsideration.  Then he started his scolding,I started yelling at the TV and decided to go to bed.

Democrats can't shut down the booming Trump economy. Are they now so desperate they'll shut down the government instead?

The GOP controls all levels of government, dipshiat. And what did Trump to the economy to make it great? He hasn't signed one piece of legislation regarding the economy except that tax bill that's going to fark over the country even more.

Didn't Ted Cruz & co, cause a shutdown over defunding ACA a few years ago?
Holding Americans hostage because you want to take healthcare away from millions of Americans.

Republicans aren't too keen on history, are they?

Just watched that. Turtle had no problem with a government shutdown when Obama was in office. He can go f*ck himself.

The Huckabiatch also tried to blame the Democrats. She also can go f*ck herself.

The press release said it came from the Huckabeast, but the term "obstructionist losers" was pure Trump.

Due to a weird quirk of the Senate rules, if the Majority Leader votes "no" on a bill and it fails, it can be brought up later for another vote.  This means that if the Majority Leader thinks the vote will be close, he will wait until the end to be sure, and then vote "no" if it is obviously going to fail.

Yes they did. They also shut down the government in the 90s because Bill Clinton once made Newt Gingrich ride in the back of an airplane. I am not making this up.

During the crisis, while being questioned at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast by Lars-Erik Nelson, Gingrich made a complaint that, during a flight to and from Yitzhak Rabin's funeral in Israel, Clinton had not taken the opportunity to talk about the budget and Gingrich had been directed to leave the plane via the rear door.

I read stuff. You read stuff. I went to a world-class university to learn how to read stuff, properly and in context.

Some people ignore stuff because it suits their argument. I can accept a lot of stuff, but I can't tolerate disingenuous stuff.

I'm looking at it as more of a "good news, bad news" thing.

The bad news is, the U.S. government is shutting down.
The good news is, it's Trump's Republican government. Can we cruise on autopilot for three years, hurtling across the galaxy like a spacecraft where all the crew members have been wiped out by disease?

For the record, the cloture motion failed despite the majority of senators voting 'aye' (50-49.) I hope that all of those using the talking point about Republicans being able to pass this entirely on their own is finally put to rest.

What next republicans?

Pass a bill that requires all American families give their first born sons to Trump? And hold the repeal of that bill over the heads of the country as hostages?

You put these children and DACA folks in harms way to begin with, and you act like the only solution is this one narrow spending bill... these people never had to be put in harms way. They could be saved in 5 minutes with a vote called by the republicans on the floor to pass CHIP, the bipartisan bill, etc.

It's a manufactured hostage situation, the last resort of desperate people. I hope their feckless vase eats them alive one day.

Seriously, I have to ask, why should the government be held hostage by illegal immigrants? And secondly, what does DACA have to do with a spending bill? What is going on in my country? What the heck happened to Democrats??

NotTooLittleRichard: I'm angry beyond the capacity for rational thought.


Not to make light of the situation, but why?

Given the GOP and the known factor that it is unable to govern did we expect a different outcome?

This has happened before. It will happen again. Eventually it will self correct.

Or not. We all die in nuclear holocaust because this country had the audacity to run HER for president. Either way what will your anger accomplish?

Yertle didn't even have 50 GOP votes for a bill without DACA.

They had over 60 votes for CR+CHIP+DACA until Trump threw that down the sh*thole.

The only people who are going to blame the Democrats for this are the same ~1/3 who tell pollsters they blame Obama for Hurricane Katrina.
