I'm not a Catholic, but Pope Francis is a breath of fresh air compared to this country's political and religious blindness to the economic disparity between the have and have not's.
Maybe this President has the foresight to only cut the fuse in Iran, whereas the last near-sighted President poured gasoline on the fuse in Iraq.
Thursday evening in Virginia two guys got into a tussle over a parking spot at Walmart, one allegedly pulled a gun and knife then cut a deep gash in the arm of the other. This is how many in this country have degenerated in their warped sense of "freedom to protect one's self". Politeness will soon be dropped from the dictionary.
By this time after the elections next November, the guy sitting alone in the outdated kitchen will be history. Voters will remember the misguided and unproductive chaos he and his friends caused to the country.
It doesn't matter which side is in control, filibuster was a roadblock. The voters should decide the issues, not the Senate minority. Hats-off to Majority Leader Reid for finally killing this ridiculous rule.
Sorry Maximus, but there' plenty of us Democrat hunters out there in the woods among you. We're easy to spot-- We'll be the ones outfitted to give the game a sporting chance. I was raised hunting rabbits and squirrels with a .22 single-shot.
Either Obamacare will be working smoothly by next November, or the Republicans will have won an election mandate to fix it. They will by replacing it with Obama's first choice-- a single-payer govt-run system like Medicare.
Why did the roll-out of the Obamacare web site fail? All the govt computer geniuses were too busy over at NSA. Having worked on major projects in private industry, I don't remember any rolling out flawless as planned. The site will be fixed and millions of uninsured will have insurance.
Thanks for the toon--we all need a good laugh at the clowns currently performing in Washington. The sequester has shut-out many jobs; some folks were ill-prepared and thought their weekly paychecks were guaranteed. When the smoke is cleared we may find many of the jobs were vital, and many were useless. The debt ceiling is a joke, just like an individual having a debt limit on a credit card they weren't responsible to make purchases with all along.
BobMKE, I'm very much a fan of Cruz. The GOP will be doing damage control for the next two elections because of him and his friends antics. It's like an early Christmas present to the DNC.
