If you are reading this post, you should know the US government has gone into complete partial meltdown shutdown after the Democrats in the Senate refused to compromise with Republicans. If you are worried about what to do next, please DO NOT PANIC. Everything will be OK.

To console you, here are a couple of videos to help you get through this government shutdown:

Now go get some sleep.

        • drakeshelton

          God’s name is not “God”. God is a Germanic neuter title. It is not a name. The name of the Almighty is Yahuwah. And his Son’s name is not Jesus. It is Yahushuwa.

          • notaboutus

            What’s your point?

            • drakeshelton

              The gentleman above rebuked “waffle_anna” for violating the 3rd commandment because “waffle_anna” said GD. The problem is GD does not violate the 3rd Commandment because “God’ is not the name of God. God is only a neuter title. Yahuwah is the name of the one God. Only a mis-use of that name can be considered a violation of the 3rd commandment.

              • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

                Practicing for judgement day? Good luck with the mealy-mouthed excuses. I’m sure they will have heard them all.

                • drakeshelton

                  An assertion is not an argument or an explanation. Still waiting for my statement to be addressed.

              • notaboutus

                The fact you think that waffle_anna didn’t violate the 3rd commandment is irrelevant for this argument, wouldn’t you say? Everyone here understood very well what TRS was getting at in his response to waffle_anna and when God is mentioned in any way (including inappropriately) we all know what that means. She was out of line and rightly apologized for it, as I also would have done had I made the comment myself. I would suggest that you tread very lightly on this topic.

                • drakeshelton

    Democrats/media will ALWAYS blame republicans, for literally everything. They can’t win.

    So they don’t have much to lose by sticking to principles and doing what we ELECTED them to do.

    Maybe they are starting to learn that lesson now.

    • DarkKnight2016

      CNN has Wanker Morgan leading the discussion over the shutdown.

      • bluerose75

        Why are you watching CNN if you are a conservative in the first place…please spare me about what they are saying..because if you watch you worry….for God’s sake….STOP WATCHING….Incredible….like you really learn something?

        • DarkKnight2016

          I have been going through all the channels… from FOX to CNN to MSLSD to BBC just to see reaction with mainly watching C-SPAN.

      • nibblesyble

        wanker morgan…lol!

  • waffle_anna

    Okay, how do we go from there? Keep it shut down until people realize its not that bad?

    What Obama is doing right now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsbYx6hevoQ

  • timerunnersc

    Obama is calling Zara leader of the Klingon’s, asking now what?

  • bluerose75

    GOOD….for crying out loud….maybe those poor liberal gov’t workers of the SEIU can pound salt without pay from the US Taxpayer. Close the whole thing outside of the Military…I am so sick of OFraud and the liberal scum. Live off the hard work of Americans and then spit in our eye….Fund 99 percent but Shredded Wheat Depend’s Reid…craps his diapers because the Disaster of Obamascare is delayed for Individuals after the Imperial Twit delayed for Corporations by Fiat….so much for the Dems caring about the Individual!
    Shut it down!! Stand your ground and Stick with the Gonads for a change! AS for the Liberal Media the people who watch it Already are Dems….who the F cares!

  • Robert Williamson

    It appears to me that it has been shut down for sometime.

    • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

      Sclerosis isn’t quite the same thing as a shutdown, but I can see how they are similar.

  • bluerose75

    Amazing the lights are still on in the house, the computer works, TV is okay…so is washer and dryer and the car looks good….wow I thought the SKY would fall!!…gee! Close the Capital…can we start with McLame’s, Shamnasty’s, Reid’s, McConnell’s and Pelosi offices…please and throw in the slob King’s from New York as well!

  • snowshooze

    Well; we are following the EMT plan.

    First: STOP THE BLEEDING.

    Ok we are still gushing blood all over the place, but at least the parks are closed.

    And everyone gets a paid vacation. Except those of us who happen to not be working for the non-essential Government services.

    But at least we gave them the hello, and they shut it down rather than accept any form of fiscal responsibility. Petulance.

    I think our next move should be to demand a full sensible BUDGET.

    Absolutely NO MORE CR’s !!! Put them on an allowance. And make them do their chores. Send the RINO’s packing along with the Democrats in the Senate in ’14.

    It is about time they woke up and remembered who is working for who around here.

    We are not Peasants!

  • SFCDeano

    It’s not the shutdown I’m worried about, It’s when it starts back up again!

  • notaboutus

    Sorry TRS, but I’m too keyed up to sleep right now. It was worth staying up just to see how pissed off Reid was delivering his speech at midnight on the Senate floor, spewing out his hatred for the Tea Party, calling them anarchists, etc. I believe that he and Obama are truly shocked the House GOP finally showed some backbone instead of rolling over like they have been doing for the last 4 plus years.

    This was a good night. Keep it up Boehner and the rest of the House conservatives. You will be rewarded if you stand firm on principle. Fight on and may God bless your efforts.

  • rjcylon

    Do they have actual conservative panelists on Fox News anymore?

    They are all begging Boehner to surrender.

    • Stehekin912

      Write and call Boehner and encourage him to STAND! We write when we are not happy…let’s be sure to write when we are happy, too!

      • lanahi

        Totally agree…let’s swamp Boehner with congratulations! He should hear from us now too!

    • pmb88

      I was watching the panel with Baier. All of them saying to concede on this and argue this on the debt ceiling fight. This is the typical m.o. We’ll fight next time. When that time comes, they say oh its not the right time. We’ll have more leverage in the next fight. The problem is when will repubs have more leverage. The people want their representatives to fight, not concede.

      • rjcylon

        Absolutely right. I don’t care if you win an election if once you won you refuse to do what you were elected to do in the first place.

        The cynicism is too much for me though. I would like to think Boehner is doing the right thing. Will have to wait it out and see.

  • snowshooze

    Question:
    Will the Obamacare Exchanges be affected by the shutdown?

    • DawgfaninFL

      I don’t believe so.

    • DarkKnight2016

      No. A lot of Obamacare is categorized as mandatory spending so regardless of the shutdown, it begins.

    • timerunnersc

      I’m not 100% sure, but I have heard No, because the exchanges are being set up by private contractors.

      • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

        Want to be Acorn is involved somewhere?

        • timerunnersc

          yeah along with the Black Panthers, CAIR, MBrotherhoodz, Communist party, Socialist party. NBlackC, NAACP, Liberal Arts,

          The list goes on and on, Democrats SantaClauseGovernment has lots of needy young and old babies.

  • DarkKnight2016

    Boehner to Speak. FOX Correspondent Mike Emmanuel says some congressmen have told him they think this could last a week.

    • rjcylon

      Fox Panel hoping he’ll take their advice and give up immediately. Krauthammer joking about how he’s no longer a conservative.

      • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

        That’s soooo funny, Mr. Krauthammer!

        Ha. (looks at watch) Ha. (deep breaths – blood pressure reasons) Ha.

        I thought I was doubled over in laughter, but I realized I was retching.

        • rjcylon

          Yeah that was an uncomfortable moment.

      • Thomas Leo

        Yeah. They took some swipes at Levin too. Krauthammer waved the white flag weeks ago. He wants to fight on the debt limit. How stupid is that? Americans are more worried about Obamacare, and NOT the debt.. This is why Levin calls them French Republicans, because they give up.

    • JohnCraven

      colliemum, we’re still here. I can’t believe it.

      By the way did you watch the NFL in London on Sunday-the game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Minnesota Vikings before a sell-out crowd of 80,000 rabid London NFL fans?

      You all don’t get Monday Night Football over across the pond except on satellite do you? Well, my Saints are now 4-0 in regular season.

      And did you hear Sarah Palin say sometimes we elect pinpricks, speaking of course of Dear Leader, the BORG queen, Nero Obama.

      • colliemum

        Hi –
        no, I didn’t watch that game, my ‘poison’ is strictly Rugby Union, where the season has just started.
        As for 80,000 rabid fans – lol! You ought to listen to 75,000 rabid Welsh fans, when they sing the Welsh National Anthem before an international rugby game: makes your hair stand on end, guaranteed.

        I saw the Sarah Palin clip right here on Scoop – and let me say here how immensely grateful I am to RightScoop for putting those videos up, so that us here in the UK are better informed than our MSM.

        • JohnCraven

          colliemum, I had a friend a long time ago in college who played on a New Orleans area rugby team over by Tulane University. He was constantly getting stitched up by the doctors who also played on the team. American football has its roots in Rugby with scrums and touchdowns. And then we’d go to a local watering hole which seemed only Rugby players knew about and played darts and drank really good beer. Imagine that!
          You are so right colliemum. Thank God for The Right Scoop posting all these terrific videos which the “lamestream media” won’t touch.

  • sallyjohanna

    Win or lose this fight…it feels great to have representation. The Dems do not have one Senator that would break ranks to represent them.

    Even after the author of Obamacare called it a train wreck. Obamacare is a socialist boondoggle and a unfair one at that…all manner of cronies and Congress have get out of Obamacare cards. Business got a 1yr stay only because Obama was afraid of the upcoming election.

    And still the constituents of the Dems in the Senate have no representation. They showed they are loyal to Obama and Socialism…not the people. Wake up America.

            AmericanDuckie, I was real proud of our WWII vets today who went to the WWII monument in Washington, D. C., and simply pushed aside the barricades that Nero Obama had his BORG drones erect around this great monument which is supposed to be open to the public all the time and they went on in to see it like they had planned to do before the “shutdown”.

              Me too John!! That was awesome! God Bless them for it too. Stupid selfish government has NO right to keep them from their monument- ESPECIALLY since it took so long for them to get it!!

  • OldmanRick

    The saddest part of this shutdown is that government employees furloughed during the partial shutdown will receive back pay, etc. once it restarts. Whereas anyone currently unemployed, who has had his/her hours reduced, or who is currently being laid off as a result of obamacare will only qualify for unemployment benefits and a not so bright future.

    There is a bright spot, however. Many of the federal agencies causing grief to individuals and companies in the private sector will be unable to do so while the partial shutdown is in effect.

  • JohnCraven

    Right Scoop you should add another clip of when Q put the Enterprise under the command of Captain Jean Luc-Picard in contact with the BORG for the first time.

    Aliens was absolutely a great movie, especially the extended director’s cut, even though Cameron went on to do movies that were totally PC. This was not PC. The director’s cut of Aliens was great. And she had a great Sarah Palin-like line in the movie, both the theatrical release and the director’s cut, when she said “Nuke ‘em! It’s the only way to be sure!”

    Will I actually have to act like a mature adult and take care of myself and family? Will the federally funded baby murders continue during the shutdown? Maybe the Pope will comment on that instead of spending most of his time preaching wealth redistribution.

  • colliemum

    The MSM hacks dazzle with their abysmal knowledge of the check-and-balances system in the USA. They haven’t a clue about how Congress works, but are happy to quote the US MSM and thus leftie propaganda.
    In case you’re interested: it’s just the 50 TEA Party members in Congress who are guilty of the shut down. Normal people here are amazed: only fifty? How is that possible! How can they bloc government?
    Nobody told them that this is Dem piffle, nobody tells them that the Dem Senate and the POS rejected any negotiations.
    It is a sad day, seeing that so many people in the UK and Europe lack any knowledge of how the USA works, and lack, furthermore, any feeling for democratic processes. Sadly, it seems as if they’d all be happy with an ‘elected’ dictator.
    No wonder so many in Europe see nothing wrong with the way the EU is run …

    • notebene

      The problem of ignorance is alive and well here in the US too! We have a lackadaisical generation that is ignorant as to why there is a system of checks and balances, or even why it was put there in the first place. It will only get worse when the federal common core standards are put into place as the bible of our education system. No longer will founding documents be studied, it will be government approved texts…further keeping the next generation educated in false propaganda and ignorance.

  • EX-REPUBLICAN

    GET RID OF THE TEA PARTY REPUBLICANS. THEY CLOSED THE GOVERNMENT DOWN WHEN WE ELECTED OBAMA IT WAS BECAUSE OF OBAMA CARE. THEY CAUSE MORE TROUBLE THAN THEY ARE WORTH!!!

    • kong1967

      Yeah, you’re an ex-Republican. Is that also ex-conservative? Or do you just want to continue the same ol’ “go along to get along” big boys club in Washington that’s destroying our country and driving us broke? The Tea Party is standing up for the Constitution, and if you don’t want to do that the piss off.

      • notebene

        Ya wanna bet this idiot is a government worker? Let’s educate…the Democrats have sat in office for 5 years without making a budget. That’s against the law and they have run up our deficit like drunken sailors at a bar. This is all owned by the demoncrats…who aren’t transparent, don’t work for the working class, and are having a ball vacationing when they should be doing their jobs on our dime. This will be the first time in 5 years that they aren’t wasting our hard-earned tax dollars! Keep it shut until our idiot in chief grows up!

        • kong1967

          As far as I’m concerned they can keep the government shut down until Obama is out of office as long as our troops keep getting paychecks. As far as the government workers, our government has too heavy of a payload and too many agencies anyway. Find another career.

    • ApplePie101

      Why, thank you!

  • kong1967

    We knew we were going to lose the battle to defund or delay Obamacare (before the deadline) and it would become a government shutdown. We can’t back out now. Keep the government shut down until Reid and Obama explode in the face. Do not give in. I don’t care if the government is shut down for the next 3 1/2 years as long as our troops get paid.

  • Abdullah The Sheik of Tikrit

    Mr. Reid was sent many bills which would have funded the government (except for Oblamacare) but he refused them all. The funny thing is, the elected democrats love the idea of Oblamacare for the peasant class americans, but they want no part of it for themselves.
    Mr Reid would make a fine Potentate.

    • MiketheMarine

      Did you call Reid a Mr. Potato Head? I agree….

  • DHardy

    Demorats and the Muzzy Bro assclown are going to let the Nazi style media wrecking crews to handle the rest if there evil bidding…..

  • ApplePie101

    Panic? Because the gangster government has shut down? State governments continue to function, local governments continue to function. self-reliant citizens continue to take care of business. Here’s to a long shutdown…long enough for the above entities to get weaned off the federal teat.

    • Sentinel

      Couldn’t agree more. :)

    • MiketheMarine

      Freaking, AMEN

  • Sentinel

    Frankly, I’m glad the government shut down – no, I didn’t want it to but it’s here now and I embrace it. Now they will finally stop their runaway spending. Now we know that Boehner didn’t cave (I don’t think he did – I just woke up). And now we know that the Dems stubbornly refused to negotiate – something to exploit in next year’s election.
    Yes, I know… now Obama will use the might of his strongest ally: the MSM, to butcher and distort and spin things so Republicans are evil and Demoncraps are good. It was going to happen anyway. But now that the bandaid has been ripped off the wound – so what? Now everyone can settle down a little bit and hopefully work this out. I see this shut down as a chance for pressure to be put on Demoncraps – as long as the Republicans stand their ground and don’t blink, the ‘craps will have to sweat this out because THEY were the ones who didn’t want to negotiate… a fact the Republicans should shout from the rooftops.
    Let the government stay shut down – we won’t default (as long as Obama and his ilk pay the interest instead of channeling funds to their own pet projects).

    • waffle_anna

      Now the next part is to start echoing Ted Cruz’ message in the MSM that it was Harry Reid and the DNC who refuse to negotiate. Since the DNC is broke, they will run out of juice sooner or later. And when that happens, the fickle MSM will turn on them.

    While everyone celebrates the strong Republican stand against funding ObamaCare, they have overlooked the fact that the House GOP stripped the pro-life and religious liberty provisions from the bill.

    • DarkKnight2016

      And yet the bill still failed.

  • wallwatchman

    Love star trek TNG!! The sad thing is, in the words of the second video clip, it SHOULD be game over with obamacare being in effect! Gov shutdown is the least we should be willing to deal with over this garbage!

    My husband is a federal contractor and this will effect us, but the saving of this country is more important! I can’t leave this mess for my kids and grandkids! I’m ready for protests in the streets folks!!

  • stage9

    I hate to invoke common sense here, but it’s what I do….

    If a government shut down scares you to death for fear that you may not receive some promised gov’ment service, then perhaps this is proof positive that gov’ment control of your food, health and income are not good sound investments on your part. Why should your next meal or your next doctor’s visit depend on whether a Washington Bureaucrat grants you permission to eat or receive health care or income?

    Do the math. Government dependency leads to your having an empty stomach and bad health.

      AMEN! Preach it Stage9! ♥♥♥

    • MiketheMarine

      Freaking right on. I am thrilled they are shut down and I hope they REMAIN shut down until the next Debt Ceiling fight. Screw ‘em. They ALL voted for Maobama anyway.

      I hate to invoke common sense here, but it’s what I do….

      That made me laugh! And it’s true!

      OH YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • JJHLH

    My email to Speaker Boehner this morning:

    Thank you for your strong leadership on the budget issue. It is a basic tenet of American society that laws should apply to everyone fairly and equally. As you are well aware that is not the case with Obamacare, where large corporations and members of Congress currently receive an exemption or benefit not enjoyed by ordinary Americans.

    You have the moral high ground in this fight. I strongly support your efforts to achieve this fairness, even if it means a protracted government shutdown. Please continue to fight for ordinary citizens.

    • MiketheMarine

      It wasn’t Boehner’s choice. HE wanted the rank and file to agree to pass a clean CR and they ALL turned their back on him and voted with those wacko, patriotic TEA Party loons. You know, us.
      LOL

      • JJHLH

        Boehner needs all the support he can get now.

        • MiketheMarine

          No he doesn’t. He needs to be removed as speaker and replaced with someone who HASN”T been castrated.

          • waffle_anna

            Yes, but in this fight we need to thank him for standing firm. Quickly he will realise that encouragement to stand firm is better than caving to Obama. I will write him soon and tell him on the behalf of my relatives that he did an amazing job by standing firm on principle and continue fighting the good fight.

            • MiketheMarine

              He DIDN’T stand firm. He begged the rank and file to pass a clean CR and they runed their back on him and stood with the TEA Party. Boehner is a democrat fraud not worthy of this conversation

              • DarkKnight2016

                What? Where are you getting this information?

                • MiketheMarine

                  It was on Fox VERY early this morning. After Reid turned down the part of Maobamacare deak for congress BEFORE the bill was even sent over Boehner was shaking in his boots and told the rank and file that they can’t have a shut down that may look bad to the people. Fact

                • Conservative_Hippie

                  Well the good news is he is a least acquiescing now, even if it is not his original choice. But, agreed, Boehner is a horrific Speaker and needs to go ASAP!

                • MiketheMarine

                  Send him to Guam. I hear it’s going to flip over soon.

        • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanDuckie

          I sent him an e mail once. Last October 2012. Asking when Impeachment and treason charges were going to be laid for Fast and Furious and Benghazi…. still waiting to hear back.
          Tweet him about Amnesty, Benghazi, and Obamacare. Never hear back from him.
          Don’t expect to either really, but I like to remind him of his job every now and then.

      • Conservative_Hippie

        LOL, we are a bit looney and some of us are even a bit loony tunes :-)

        • MiketheMarine

          My favorite Marine Corps geedunk store sells a t-shirt that says, “Marines don’t suffer from insanity, we enjoy every minute of it.” That about covers my attitude, as if you guys didn’t already know that. LOL

            That’s funny!

          And then some of us are just toons. ;)

          • Conservative_Hippie

            LOL, yep!

  • lawngren

    GOOD. Now let’s extend this shutdown until November 2016. If the gummint isn’t working, it can’t do further damage to America.

    But I’ll bet obama will find a way to change that. I give him about 24 hours before he starts shutting down nuke power plants, defunding the military, etc. etc.

    “Imagine” by maul Pickapartee:

    “Imagine there’s no gummint,
    above us only sky;
    Imagine freedom blooming now;
    It’s easy if you try…”

    • DarkKnight2016

      Well it actually can do harm if it is for that amount of time.

      • lawngren

        I don’t know … think of the offsetting growth that would occur, the opportunities that could be exploited.

        Think of the population realizing that they don’t need Leviathan.

        • waffle_anna

          That’s the plan. When the citizens realize that this govt shutdown is not bad at all, they will turn on the Democrats.

          • lawngren

            Some will, anyway. Those who have a spark of self-reliance and independence. Those who are parasites won’t, but with luck, they’ll be forced to get a job….. the possibilities are pleasant to contemplate.

            • waffle_anna

              Yup. It’s do or die time. Even parasites will be forced to act when their comfort zone is threatened. Once they realise that the Dems own this one, the head-rolling will be very amusing.

              This is exactly what Obama and the Dems are fearing. They’re broke. When the govt is shut down long enough and citizens don’t notice a difference, Obama will be backed into a corner.

              It’s all a waiting game now.

              • JohnCraven

                But we should always keep in mind the seemingly inexhaustible ability of Nero Obama’s BORG drones to blame everyone else for the failure of Nero ObamaCare (NOCare for short) and the termination of their full-time jobs.

                Invincible ignorance can only be penetrated by GOD!

        • DarkKnight2016

          The shutdown is actually costing us money,

          • MiketheMarine

            On what planet do you live on? The same planet as Mao and Stalin and Hitler?

            • DarkKnight2016

              No just one that understand that while we keep fighting we do have to understand the ramifications of a prolonged shutdown.

              • MiketheMarine

                How can YOU or I possibly predict the actions and ramifications of an unconstitutional government?

          • lawngren

            Maybe I’m missing something here. Enlighten me. Some segments of the gov’t aren’t spending money because they’re shut down. That costs us money how?

            • DarkKnight2016

              The last two government shutdowns in 1995 and 1996, totaling 27 days, cost the federal government $1.4 billion.

              That’s over $2 billion in today’s dollars on costs like back pay to furloughed federal workers and uncollected fines and taxes.

              • lawngren

                Assuming that your stats are correct – no offense, I just don’t like assumptions and don’t have time today to verify – what was SAVED by the gov’t not initiating new spending?

                In this instance, how many jobs and businesses will be saved, at least temporarily, because ocare has not been implemented yet and the repubs have finally shown some backbone? And how much money will not be spent on ocare because it’s stalled? and how many people will receive healthcare that would have been rationed or denied under ocare?

                $2 billion? That’s nothing compared to the huge benefits we have reaped and may yet achieve because of the shutdown.

                • DarkKnight2016

                  Those OMB stats. Or how about the hit local economies that depend on the nations 401 national parks could take? Roughly 230 million people a year visit these parks.

                  Also a shutdown doesn’t stall Obamacare. Most of it was already funded from past CRs.

                • lawngren

                  The locals who depend on nat’l park tourism should now become aware that the fedgov is determined that ocare happen regardless of consequences. They should therefore be moved to help eliminate ocare and more importantly to remove politicians who vote contrary to the best interests of the American people.

                  If ocare was – mostly – already funded, why were reid and obama so determined to get this CR passed with ocare funding in it?

                • DarkKnight2016

                  They thought it was ridiculous because most of it is already funded and a lot of it is in mandatory spending. That is why the exchanges still started today.

                • lawngren

                  “They thought it was ridiculous”?

                  They shut down the government because “they thought it was ridiculous”?

                • DarkKnight2016

                  Yes, they don’t want to put up with this.

                • JohnCraven

                  The House passed with a supermajority vote and the Senate approved and Nero Obama signed into law a micro budget to cover the Military. They plan to do the same for the parks which do provide many private businesses such as restaurants and tour guides, etc., with a lot of tourist dollars.
                  And they also plan to do the same for the VA and other vital agencies. At the same time they can leave unfunded evil programs like Planned Parenthood and the EPA ect.

                  Sounds good to me. If we keep this shutdown going, I wonder how long it will be before Planned Parenthood has to lay people off? That would be a major accomplishment by itself!

    They could start cutting the useless Dept of Education, Dept of Energy, half the cabinet and useless czars, hair stylists, chefs [let then eat at burger king] and so on and we could save millions.

      After the rescue airship was destroyed by the Aliens and the grunt went Bat Nuts McCain over the situation, Sigourney Weaver told him to get a grip because that little girl had survived all this time in this nest of Aliens without any help and the grunt said to Sigourney Weaver (“Ripley”): “Well why don’t you put her in charge?!” And the little girl saluted!
      That was a great comeback.

    The POtuS is speaking now and as the leader of the free world you would think he would assume SOME responsibility for the shutdown of government. But, NOOOO, he is using this opportunity to go for the jugular of the Republican party. He will use all the time he has to BASH the American people and DIVIDE this nation further. All I can say is the republican party better grow some and RISE UP against the attacks of the enemy. Stand firm!

      So far on this issue I am proud of the US Congress. So we’ll encourage them and let them know they are right and they have our full support for their reasons for this shut down.

      • JohnCraven

        Ditto! timerunnersc! Ditto! When they are doing what is right, especially if Karl Rove and John McShame and Lindsey Graham-Nasty are against it, then we need to show them our support and I support them “Nickel and Diming” the Senate and Nero Obama to death by passing spending bills on a micro scale to fund just the absolutely essential things we need to fund like our military and the VA, ect. They can hold up funding Planned Parenthood’s diabolical organisation forever and I would be happy with that. Ditto for the EPA, the State Department and the IRS.

    Btw – I heard that O’Care aims to ‘connect all hospital information on patients across the country’. If that’s true, then you ain’t seen nuthin yet!
    As you know, the UK NHS has been running since 1948, with all information on patients centralised (sort of).
    Tony Blair wanted to have all NHS hospitals connected by computer, with all patient information available to doctors anywhere. After 12 Billion £ and ten years there’s nothing, the software simply isn’t available.
    And the POS thinks he can do this for 300 million users?
