    dammocrats ! my favorite thing about shut downs is when they root out the "non essentials". ha, ha, fritz lang's metroplois and then some, first they have to identify them (dime out their own), such poetic perfection.
    Duhhhh maybe we shouldn't have spent all the money. can you imagine if the third behemoth porkulus omnibus had successfully rolled out of the hanger? rangel said there wasn't enough time to get to it (the budget, he called it "guidelines") when pelosi was leading the pack.

    The only thing the Tea party wants is to not spend 61 billion we don't have. If you really care about the government going, that small amount should be easy enough to give up.

    But i get the feeling that you want the government to shut down just as much as those you are accusing, but for much less noble reasons.

    looks like Obama is going to throw Reid under the bus on this one.

    The Democrats and Reid have rejected the bill. The Republicans have come forth and tried to address the current problem. The Democrats are the ones not making an effort. They are perfectly happy to sit by and watch as the government shuts down as long as in the future they can either get what they want or prevent others from fixing fiscal problems. If the Democrats really wanted to work this out then they would compromise and make this happen.

    The baggers don't want a Budget passed. They want an "All in One" bill. If Beaner allows a shutdown to happen the GOP loses...again. All the polls say the American people know who is to blame.

    By God, I think that we should give the Teabaggers exactly what they wish. Shut the damned government down. Send the Air Traffic Controllers home. Do not send out Mays SS checks. Start bringing all military overseas home. Just leave the equipment there, we don't have the money to maintain it in any case. Close down the FBI and the Border Patrol. Same for Homeland Security. No money goes out to anybody for anything at all after Friday from the Federal Government. That includes Congressional and Executive salaries.

    Yep, shut the nation down, really show the whole world what a peice of work these people are.
