    Sanity Zone 10-2-2013 Shut Down and Loving it.

    You sound like a Nero. As bad as things have been -- I assume this last is fuel for yet more apathy. But, I will agree it is probably only the anger and passion of youth that can save us now.

    The Road Gets Tougher

    It has been said each week that the "secrete to winning that week is the ground game", each week it fails, each week we win.

    It is simply not the case.

    Sproles speed is reduced.... Huh?

    Doom and Gloom. Purely... All things getting worse... reread your prediction and tell me I am wrong.

    It certainly is not a renaissance. I would love it to be so, but I'm not that naive. America's only hope is to avoid total collapse, as I don't think it will ever be near the same.

    My opinion really has nothing to do with this shutdown, though. This has been my thought process for at least the last four years. Our government has proven for a very long time that they are all about themselves, so why should we be surprised by this latest development? I know I'm not.

    Being held hostage again.

    Barrack Obama ~ "I will not negotiate"
    Jay Carney ~ I can say that this administration does not believe that the 14th Amendment gives the president the power to ignore the debt ceiling period.

    There you have the reasons for the shut down. The debt ceiling was ignored when laws were made and the President refuses to negotiate.

    As long as popularity and electability are the focus of our officials, public opinion will polarize parties and grind this country to a halt.... After all is said and done, this country is divided between two fundamental personality types and their polar opposite nature is not something that can be swayed easily... Its hard wiring and those that are possibly in the middle have no chance as their numbers are too small.

    If you want to see a Government's or a persons true nature, ban climate surveys (polls) and force them to act on their own volition. Completely remove their ability to demonize their opponents voices and let their decisions and actions stand on their own merit.

    The only reason conservatives and liberals go at each other is because like Pavlov's dog they have been conditioned to do so. Many a great friendship has not survived the knowledge of knowing the others political stance.

    Being held hostage again.

    Great point!!!

    Shouldn't a qualification for being a member of the US Congress be at least limited intelligence AND understanding of how Congress & the Federal Government work?
    How can you explain PRESBO getting elected twice then? Is he not currently usurping his constitutionally granted powers with his illegal executive directives?

    Once again the dumabasses in the house are threatening to shut down the government over debt ceilings, money, taxes & the Affordable HealthCare Act.
    Not true as a plethora of bills were passed and Harry Reid in the Senate tabled them. It is the Dems that are causing this shutdown...nothing new here!

    I don't care a persons views or standings just support yourself with facts. Yes that dirty word - FACTS. Not what you here from Fox or Rush Limpdick or Michael Moore or MSNBC but facts.
    U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time

    The debt ceiling argument shows the absolute ignorance & stupidity of many people in Congress. We have already spent the money. Now you have to pay. It would be like going to a restaurant & ordering a large expensive meal & the deciding at the end you don want to pay.
    They have spent money alright, but not where you think. All we have to show for it is greater debt and spending. Since 2008, the Federal government has practically doubled spending. Have you doubled your spending since also and are able to balance your budget?

    Yes dear god yes I understand the need to reign in spending but this is not the way to do it (neither is cutting food stamps by the way)
    Just go back to 2008 spending levels...they do not have the guts to do it!

    Ohhhh - here's an idea lets pull out of Afghanistan how much would that save?Let's not give subsidies to HUGE companies (oil! farm, etc.) & let's restructure the tax code so that everyone wealthy & not pay a fair share.
    The answer you ask? HR 25 ... its ramifications will solve a multifaceted problem and transfer a balance of power back to the people, as it should be. That and passing the "Liberty Amendments".

    I am soundly middle class. My profession choice insures that. But I am sick & tired of paying more than my fair share when people who make MILLIONS & BILLIONS of dollars are not.
    Then don't vote liberal... these types always take money out of your pockets... they need it for Obama Phones and take your pic other bloated federal program.

    Don't blame the country's problems on the rather minuscule amounts we pay for Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps & unemployment when We allow the corporations to bilk the country for 10 times as much.
    Not a minuscule amount as the Captain Obvious example clusterfuvk Obamacare is. And yes... every penny counts

    Time for the members of Congress who have any intelligence & balls to stand up & do what is right for the country NOT what is right for the to get reelected.
    That is the first you said that makes common sense. But you must sprinkle in the American People in there, for it is we, and only we, that can make these changes. BTW... that is what Ted Cruz is attempting to do.

    I am glad you care, btw, Homer!

    Actually, we have Time Warner and hubby watches Brewers and Packer games on the upper deck.

    He pulls it in wirelessly (he is a geek).

    You definitely have your finger on the pulse of the team, Sandwich ... great observations, . It was nice seeing the offense get a little more in sync and the defense continue to gel. Next weeks MNF is on! I can't wait!.

    I've had a HTC, Samsung, and Motorola "Smartphones". Android is more durable and actually quite a bit "smarter", as well as giving you more freedom than Apple ever will give a person. Plus the freedom becomes even bigger if you 'root' your phone, but thats just tech-nerd talk. I personally prefer HTC actually, but Samsung ain't no slouch either. Android is the better option, unless your like 800 years old, lol.

    I am giving up on the hipster iphone, too. I am eligible for an upgrade at the end of November, and I keep reading great things about the HTC One. It seems to be a beast of a phone, and it is one of the top recommended phones for people signing new contracts this year, as it will still be relevant two years from now.
