    9-Year-Old Girl Writes Letter to Congress Telling Them to Grow Up

    What a shame!
    She speaks the truth. Attempting to encourage compromise, Gold continued: "At my school when we get into disagreements we compromise, work as a team, use leadership, have a positive attitude, and respect each other. I encourage you to do this in Washington, D.C."

    Someone needs to inform that little lady that there are times when you don't compromise.

    No, it has to be true, because it's just so dang precious.

    Says he who wrote the article:

    As Jon Stewart pointed out last night , what upset the media, and specifically the Fox News crowd concerning the sequester, was the cancelled White House tours, not the higher loss of work that resulted, nor the cuts made to unemployment benefits, housing aid, and educational programs.
    The White House tours merely being closed isn't what was objected to. It was Obama going out of his way to shuffle around the sequester cuts to make them seem as visible and dire as possible. The White House tours didn't have to be closed; Obama specifically chose them. What was objected to was the stunt, not the absence of the tours.

    The National Parks could be open tomorrow; the House has offered to pass separate funding for it, just like they did for the military, which was passed by both houses and signed into law. But the Senate and Obama have both pledged to kill any such bill.

    Shutting down the government over playing 'hide and seek' is the biggest joke on earth

    What's even more sad is the no. of male Senators and Congressmen that will write her back asking for pictures of her in summer outfits.

    Yes, when you're dealing with the enemy. But you can't possibly want political parties to treat each other like the enemy. All the people on the Hill have been elected by people and they represent a proportion of the population.

    Who cares? This ain't elementary school. Seriously, this is important or even newsworthy, why? Maybe only cuz it exposes the Democrats and President as fools.

    This applies to Republicans: "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time"....Abraham Lincoln.

    Stow it...only the Democrats are refusing to fund the government. Plain and simple and end of story.
