    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Yeah, that's what I'm saying

    So I guess you're of the opinion that compromise means one side gets what they want and the other side gets nothing. Though, if you're sticking to this week's GOP talking points I suppose you're going to say that the compromise is that the president gets his debt ceiling increase. That's what all of the usual suspects said last Sunday on the talk shows. I guess they forgot that the debt ceiling isn't the president's, it's the nation's, and the debt ceiling is a matter for congress not the president.

    Anyway, reasonable people see that the president has been bending over backwards trying to deal with the GOP as they fold their arms and stomp their feet like little brats who can't get their way.

    Like I said, good luck with that Cap and Balance crap that the house GOP wants to pass. It'll never happen. That doesn't mean that Dems want to shut down the gov't. That's just the way it goes sometimes. That's the way the legislative process works. Dems have control of the White House and the senate. It won't pass. But if you want to see who actually does want to shut down the gov't, look no further than this video:

    why should compromise include tax hikes? are you saying that the dems believe all federal spending is a beneficial action that they must protect?

    real compromise is both parties CUTTING stuff both parties value. not hiking taxes to appease the class warfare addicts and those who don't want any of the idiotic excessive spending cut

    I think it's funny just how obviously offensive you find the idea of a balanced budget. LOL

If the Democrats want to block that change, then we might need to shut down the government. Hopefully, he will gain some type of common sense before the actual day of reckoning.

    The ones that are clueless are the freaking Republicans. They are clueless as to what not raising the debt ceiling will do to the country, to the veterans, to the troops!

    Shutting down the government isn't like shutting a door - people depending on their SS checks won't be getting them, our troops won't be getting paid (and recommendations offered by Bimbo Bachmann are akin to stopping a dam with bubble gum). But, as usual, the Republican/conservatives demonstrate that they don't care about anybody but themselves and being in charge. Well, too bad, Americans are too smart not to realize what Republicans/conservatives have done to this country and will not fall for their lies again.

    I think it's funny how quickly you jump to conclusions. I don't support this legislation. That doesn't mean I don't support a balanced budget. It's basically a legislative version of what they're already doing - We get everything, you get nothing. That plus a balanced budget constitutional amendment that will only be used by the GOP as a constitutional reason to cut entitlements. No thanks. You can keep that piece of crap.

    Hummmm, if entitlements programs are the antithesis of a balanced budget what does that say?
