    I also read somewhere that things were reversed this time and thier was almost a shutdown even though the dems got everything they wanted, all the dems voted against something or another that could have shut everything down. yet the media was silent.

    There's a developing rift on the left. It has been present for a very long time, but the recent election outcome, Obama's lame duck status, and 2016 looming seem to have combined to open that rift a little more. It should be interesting to watch. Another massive spending bill cobbled together behind closed doors is what we have now, and it seems not too many are all that anxious to put their signature to it. Can't say that I blame them, regardless of the manufactured reasons they may claim. Pelosi claims it's blackmail. That's too funny.

    Fortunately, there's now a path for the next Republican president to do and undo anything he wants without any involvement from Congress whatsoever.

    Thanks, Obama.

    So, in this bill, we will order 4 more F-35 fighter planes that the Pentagon didn't ask for and don't actually function. Don't worry, we will help pay for it by cutting $93 million from WIC, a program aimed at helping mothers and children get proper nutrition.

    And, for some reason, in this budget bill we will expand the cap of direct political contributions by a factor of ten.

    I read somewhere John Boehner demanded that the bill include ritual sacrifice of the first born sons.

    Perhaps this is an opportunity for the Democrats to purge themselves of the far left, the group who took a once proud American party and made it what it is today. But the odds are long.

    Very long, that's for sure.
