Which Senate republicans do you think Harry Reid is trying to work with at this moment?

Any? I sense some deal might be hammered out....maybe through concessions. The Senate is in Session....on a Sunday. Maybe just the nuclear response too?

What do you think is going on?

Here is some Teabagger logic that will enable the Shutdown....clueless.

From a Teabagger....

"Don't let them lie to you. Default on the debt will occur if, and only if, the Administration deliberately chooses not to make the interest payments with the tax revenue they receive each month.

The US Government receives over $200 billion in tax revenue each month, and must make $20 billion of interest payments. In other words, there is enough income to service US debt payments whether Congress raises the debt limit or not."

This is what they now believe...all will be sunny and bright regardless of the Shutdown....They believe this rhetoric!!!!

My Teabagger friend gave this response to the late night GOP House Rule change...

Now this friend has been a friend since childhood, since we were 2 years old...he is retired Air Force now....( I felt the need to explain this aspect). We will call him Jack.

At first he told me to read the Constitution...

Jack: "Please read Article I, Section 5 (2nd paragraph) of the Constitution"

Me: I responded in kind....."Sure they can do it....but what they are doing is not a representation of the people. Shuts out, locks out a balance of debate for "We The People"......

Me: The President is does not legislate. Boehner and the GOP only presented bills that were knowingly utterly ridiculous...example...refunding ACA/Obamacare which is now law of the land. Not sending a clean CR is also ridiculous and harmful to ALL...including you and the Tea Party. The GOP for some suicidal reason want a shut down.Democracy has been suspended in the House of Representatives. Trying not to be insulting and carry on a reasonable debate.....

but then....He went off the cliff.....

[/b]Jack: "When it comes to being ethical or not ethical what does the president not being legislature have to do with anything? And since you realize he is not part of the legislature, where you when he was unilaterally and unconstitutionally changing law with his exemptions to Obamacare. When he changes the law, is it the same law of the land that the SC ruled on? Two, so if it is the law of the land, so what, there is nothing that says it cannot be changed or repealed and that goes for Supreme Court decisions also. The Supreme Court once ruled slavery Constitutional. It is not law anymore. While the GOP may be committing suicide, at least they are standing on principle and doing what they believe is best for the country. I am for that. Obamacare is hurting a lot of people and as long as it stands it will hurt a lot more. Suicide for the better of the country; sounds honorable to me. Obamacare has to go, sooner or later."


These people just can't connect the dots.....I've tried to guide them within reasonable debate but they are so far off the mark of actually understanding the Constitution yet throw it in our faces with every breathe.

So...how do I respond to this?

Someone please explain Boehner's position today from "This Week with George S".

It didn't appear any progress will be made regarding the Shutdown. I now can't figure out why the debt limit is the front line topic today? I thought ACA-ObamaCare was target.... They have switched up talking points to where I can't figure it out anymore.

Explain our dilemma.

The Simplest Explanation Of Obamacare. Ever.

Well, we have to start somewhere with educating the public regarding the Affordable Health Care Program. This short video clip explains the basics in an unbiased, simplistic fashion....


Announcement: Brett won First Place today at Ohio State Fair, "Beef Wars" Iron Chef!

I posted here last month sharing that Brett was competing at the High School level Iron Chef-Beef Wars/Sirloin at the Ohio State Fair.....today was the competion....

link: http://www.democraticunderground.com/115727767

He won! 1st Place!!!!

Sirloin Steak, 1 pound Bistro Style ...marinated briefly in Dale Sauce rosemary and garlic; seared on LeCreuset grill pan with Brett's own grill seasoning, and finished off in our new portable Breville Convection oven.

Ohio Creamed Corn with bacon lardons, homemade corn stock, creme' fraiche, lime zest and cilantro

Caprese Salad instead of 1st choice Asparagus Salad to meet the additional food group. It was actually the better choice after all.

Caprese Salad with Ohio farm fresh tomatoes, Maldon Sea Salt, fresh ground pepper, handmade mozzarella, balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, fresh basil, and lots of grated/zester style Parmigano Reggiano on top like "Snow on the Mountain". Top with another scant drizzle of olive oil and splash of balsamic vinegar.

This win helps with scholarships. Next year, after HS graduation....New England Culinary Institute.

Has anyone posted the DU picture and thread where DU'ers sent Helen Thomas" Thank You Roses"?

I saw the link say 1-2 years ago...I have yet to see it during this grief period for Helen Thomas. The thread made me feel so good!

I'd love to have an old time DU'er share this once again...in Memoriam.

I hope Jamie Foxx makes a movie about Trayvon.

Jamie could present the Big Picture, bring Trayvon into reality...Jamie could present the real story. Hell...Zimmy made one ..

Jamie Foxx has shown great passion during this ordeal. That's why I suggested him.

Did Trayvon's father live at the Gated Community?

Or, were they just visiting a friend for the day? I ask because I am in a discussion wherein I thought that Tracy Martin rented a home in the community. My opponent said the father did not live there.


testimony Tuesday, Wendy Dorival, who worked as the volunteer program coordinator for the Sanford Police Department, said she made a presentation to facilitate a neighborhood watch program in 2011 for residents of Retreat at Twin Lakes, where Zimmeran lived and Trayvon was visiting a friend of his father's on the night he was killed. Dorival said she doesn't discuss whether residents should carry firearms while participating in neighborhood watch program" USA Today, July 25, 2013


Is this true?

MSNBC Poll...Do you agree with the Zimmerman verdict?
