The White House Guide to Negotiations with Senator McConnell and Speaker Boehner

An Introduction to Caving...
[hr]...

Caving Safety

Caving is a potentially dangerous sport, but it can be made as safe as you want it to be. Unavoidable accidents are extremely rare; people make mistakes and they, or others, can get hurt because of those mistakes. There are many things which can cause an accident; you are expected to know about them and have sufficient foresight and use enough caution to avoid them. ...

The following pages describe some of the more common hazards of caving. Don't let it scare you off, though. In a certain sense caving can be compared to driving. If you had never driven a car you could get into a lot of trouble by driving out into rush hour traffic. Once you have the knowledge and experience, you can drive safely. The same is true of caving.

The General Rules of Caving Safety

NEVER go caving alone. Three people is the absolute minimum number for a trip. The reason for this is that if a person is hurt, someone must remain with the injured party while the third person goes for help. Four to six people is generally considered the optimum size party for the average caving trip. Also, other people can help you when you are having trouble (which happens a lot to varying degrees).

...

Start caving with experienced cavers. Learn your capabilities in easy caves. Don't exceed your limits. Get to know the abilities of your caving friends. One often hears of "high school students" who get into trouble in a cave. This is caused by inexperience and/or a "swollen head".

President Obama doesn't have an ounce of non-corporatist fight in his body.

He should have gotten up on stage yesterday and openly declared that from that moment on it is HIS MISSION to ensure that this newly elected Republican-majority Congress is a ONE-SESSION Republican-majority Congress.

That did not happen. A whole lot of caving is coming up - just wait. ...

6. He should have landed on an aircraft carrier and announced a War on Republicans.

 

Anything less than drone strikes on both chambers is capitulation.

3. Deals were cut when the insiders figured out

they F--ed up and Mr. Obama was put in the Rethug box. Every thing now will be positioning for a Democratic comeback in 2016. If you had been listening,you would have heard this from one of the top Rethug strategist we had to win as many seats in the Congress to keep Hillary Clinton in check for at least two years. There is a shit storm coming inside the Democratic Party and it ain't going to be pretty. Very similar to what we seen after Raygun f--ed over the Dems with his campaign. Number one move,out with Reid. He isn't reelectable,he burned his bridges on this cycle.
