Cancervative site says shutdown hurting repigs.

This saga has not yet become a disaster for Republicans, but the potential is there. And it’s important to understand where this began. Conservatives are trying to lay the blame at the feet of President Obama and Democrats, because they won’t negotiate. But that’s not the issue — the issue is that they have no reasons to negotiate. A government shutdown can only help them, and this is something conservatives have been in denial about all along.
Meanwhile, exchange for preventing something the Democrats actually want, a few conservative lawmakers made unrealistic demands and unrealistic promises to their base. (See why this doesn’t work?) Lawmakers, they said, could easily prevent an already-passed, already-funded piece of health care legislation from going into effect if they’d just grit their teeth and wish it away. There was never a realistic plan to do anything about Obamacare, of course. It was all talk — pro-wrestling stuff, as Ted Cruz eloquently put it during his 21-hour speech.

And of course the repiglets are calling him a traitor:

To: The Old Hoosier; All
“The story of Obamacare’s disastrous, glitchy roll-out today has already been overshadowed by the shutdown, but that’s the least of our problems.”

To hear the commies & their Ministry of Propaganda tell it, maybe.

People have WAY more pressing concerns. Paying their bills & A JOB, mostly.
0bamacare may guarantee a diagnosis (not for everyone), but it also guarantees, for the majority, that they will have no money available for treatment.

The government is shut down BECAUSE of the democrats piling higher taxes, a new & HEFTY expense each month & the knowledge that they *will never get a tax return again* on top of no job/ pay cut & struggling to pay their bills.

They are dictating to the American People that they WILL have 0bamacare crammed down their throats *to the exclusion of every other necessity of life* if that’s what it takes.

We may be in for hell on earth (CW2) before it’s over, but the democrats are TOAST.

How DARE anyone say ANYTHING against the President while the nation is AT WAR!?!

Oh, how the narrative changed.

Military Families finally get recognition

Should have happened decades ago.

KochRoaches' own ad works against them

Greg Palast is giving away downloads of his film showing the truth about Bush's "election"

Ku Klux Kourt kills King’s Dream Law
Replaces Voting Rights Act with
Katherine Harris Acts
by Greg Palast for Truthout

They might as well have burned a cross on Dr. King's grave. The Jim Crow majority on the Supreme Court just took away the vote of millions of Hispanic and African–American voters by wiping away Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

I'm so angry, so distraught by this, that I've asked my foundation to release my film, 'Election Files, for free. This is a no-BS, no charge download of my series of investigative reports for BBC Television and Rolling Stone.


Oh noes! Just LOOK at all the ways Christians are being persecuted!


Of course, each of these stories features selective reporting, if not outright lies and fear-mongering.

Inside the Conservative Brain: What Explains Their Wiring

Good article:

Watch out for the holy water!


I believe it's time for a 1-state experiment. Give them what they want!

T-bags and repigs have many, many theories about how states, and the nation, should be run. I propose we give them one state to test out their theories for, what a year? OK, however long they believe it would take them to reach the "freedom" they so desperately want and believe the rest of us are denying them, though we'd have to put some limit on the experiment. Two years? Five? OK, fine.

There are several states that would be perfect for this experiment; several have spoken about their desire to dislodge themselves from our godless, demonic nation. Texas, of course, but how would we get those who don't want to be a part of this experiment out to a safe place? That would take money, tons of it.

How about South Carolina? They've made noises about breaking away, and there's even a large effort to move Christians there so they can create their own paradise, complete with "biblical" rules that restrain thoughts and actions in every waking moment.

For the sake of whatever, let's let SC carry out that experiment. Of course we'd have to airlift to safety many of Charleston's citizens, as well as many from other cities, but I'm sure the UN would work with us in that humanitarian effort.

OK, so now South Carolina is its own Christian Nation, as so many of them have claimed they want to be. Great! Presumably they will still want to trade with the USA, though that will require heavily guarded checkpoints, of course. They will not be able to access our porno, and as a different nation will need to set up and clarify their position on whether they want their citizens to have internet access at all. They will surely block broadcast and cable networks that serve other states, but just in case, we'll make sure they aren't stealing them from our nation.

As they are a separate country, we will be eager to sell them our produce, grown in states they hate, for a premium. Also, computers and software designed in "evil" California will be available, just as they are in other countries hostile to the USA.

More to come.

Hilarious exchange between parent and "Christian volunteer" @ child's school

This is great on so many levels.
