    Senate Republicans force delay on spending bill

    That's the way it is done... slow them down at every point of entry... throw sand in the gears... use every delay tactic in the book. Make them fight hard for Marx and his vessel... make them stand on the floor and defend Karl Marx and his ideological shadow President No You Can't.

    Give no millimeter on any front.

    Have Rush and Talk radio carry the water to the public.

    Trillion here, trillion there, half a trillion here, tax increases during a recession, socialist health care coming, money for Palestinian Terrorists, Disneyland foreign policy with the Russians and Iran.. and trying to use Rush as a wedge... LOL... Obama has the ears of Dumbo... now the policies to match.

    Senate Republicans force delay on spending bill
    WASHINGTON – Senate Republicans, demanding the right to try to change a huge spending bill, forced Democrats on Thursday night to put off a final vote on the measure until next week. The surprise development will force Congress to pass a stopgap funding bill to avoid a partial shutdown of the government.

    Republicans have blasted the $410 billion measure as too costly. But the reason for GOP unity in advance of a key procedural vote was that Democrats had not allowed them enough opportunities to offer amendments.

    Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., canceled the vote, saying he was one vote short of the 60 needed to close debate

    Can you define socialism yet?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Using any definition you like.

    I leave the world open to you folks... give you the world, and you can't find a significant program or socialist state or institution that works... over the long term.

    And I did say let's stick to a time since industrialization, say 150 years back.
    The start of Ulysses S. Grant's Presidency.

    Pete:
    Democrats have begun to talk about this wasteful spending.

    Remember... everything targeted, no earmarks, no waste, no pork.
    Them's Obama's werds.
    He done did make th'claim.
    LOL...

    Yes we can... bull**** the American people...
    ...for a while.

    This president has a lot of BS to account for.
    Eees time'll come Señor.

    I'd be more impressed if the GOP had held themselves to such regard when they were in power, but I'll take this resurgence because it helps to stop the impending horror of Obamanism.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    1) I like the Republicans standing up to excess spending for a change, so I am in agreement.

    2) However, your answer to Hatuey is very dishonest. Before he can answer your question, you should define what you believe Socialism is so he can answer your question.

    1) In total agreement.

    Since there are many definitions of Socialism, Hatuey was only asking for a clarification. If zimmer is unable to clarify, then perhaps he does not know what he is talking about.
