    I wouldn't Bob and I'm no fan of the left for the most part. Politicians use events like these that deserve to stand on their own right. I don't want to see politicians getting headlines for something a group of vets did. They (Cruz and Palin) were just there to rub a little hero onto themselves.

    And it's true, there hasn't been a competent Cn'C of the U.S. military since 2008.
    You've got your apostrophe in the wrong place then.

    It was well before 2008, but since Bush was in office until 2009 at which point did he become incompetent, in your opinion?

    Is any of that even true? Head Start, Meals on Wheels run off local and state funding, the CDC rightfully belongs in the emergency services exemption, same with WIC under essential services. As for food inspection, it's obviously still going on otherwise food wouldn't be getting to the stores.

    I saw a lot of tea party flags there at the protest and I started laughing because it was the tea party who wanted to shut down the government in the first place.

    Maybe they are confuse like these guys.

    ...78%? Wow! That's probably why gas stations make money by selling those bags of ice! Besides, who has the 45 seconds it takes to fill an ice cube tray at home?

    At least there weren't any "Free Mumia!" signs.

    She's the political equivalent of a one-hit wonder, not yet realizing that it's time to hit the oldies circuit.

    I suspect that Mumia Abu-Jamal may have been guilty, but didn't get a fair trial. If he really is guilty, why is anyone opposed to a new trial? Won't the evidence bear out what they've been saying all along?

    I also have a problem with pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel signs at a lot of liberal rallies. They ignore the fact that the people oppressing the Palestinians are not the Israeli government, but their own leaders. If I were one of this nation's leading liberal voices, I'd say, "Stop supporting the Palestinian thugs. Support Israel. It doesn't mean you have to support Netanyahu." (Don't get me started on him: He is unworthy to lead a great nation. Or any nation.)
