    Unlike a century ago a lot of our electricity comes from hydroelectric damns, wind, solar panels,natural gas,and nuclear power, not just coal powered plants.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I don't like that they peppered it with other ****.

    But I think it's about ****ing time they actually did their jobs: which includes passing a budget.

    You know how many times our pay from the military was ****ED because of this **** all year? I'd have to hurry home and phone ALL of our utility and other such companies to tell them we won't pay them - and that would cause a ripple . . it woudl take us about 2 months to square everything away because the military hiccups like a beast everytime there's a snafu.

    I didn't like anyone in Congress before and I **** as hell don't like them now - ****wads. They should have cut all the questionable **** OUT and fiddled wit hthat LATER and left the importance stuff ALONE so others of us didn't have to suffer CONSTANTLY.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
