    Policy riders and poison pills on budget bills are the House Republican version of the Senate Republican filibuster.

    Since they have never been closed in prior shutdowns I would be interested in knowing why this time. But I'm sure this investigation will run into a dead end as usual. Most transparent indeed...joke!


    ...predicting standard Progressive meme of attacking the source...I counter with request for source to substantiate prior shutdowns...the nothing (as is a different Progressive meme)...typically predictable

    I'd also like to know how they can legitimately close the ocean...

    Charter guides received a message from the National Park Service this week informing them that they are not permitted to take clients fishing in Florida Bay until the feds get back to work. That means that more than 1,100 square miles of prime fishing is off limits between the southern tip of the mainland to the Keys until further notice.

    Well , my guess would be because of trying to prevent potential vandalism.

    They just finished cleaning the Lincoln Memorial that was vandalized with green paint before the shut down.

    I'd say they closed the ocean like they did during the Civil War.
    In better news for Dems, poster boy Darrel Issa's kisser will be back on the tube.
    Can'tor wait for that.

    Maybe...but the recent vandalism occurred WHILE SECURITY FORCES WERE NOT ON FURLOUGH...further from the picture I've seen they are still policing the area...and didn't the president state that police and security would not be effected by the shutdown...which is it?

    So you are equating the shutdown to the Civil war? REALLY?

    Which side of the aisle threatens the a 2nd civil war more?
    Which lean writes more best-sellers on a second civil war.
    Which wingnut radio hosts rant about the coming civil war?
    got 2nd amendment remedies?
    I hope that helped.

    Didn't help at all.
    Wasn't the premise of OWS to start the 2nd civil war?
    Second civil war best-sellers? Got any reliable data on that one?
    wingnut radio hosts? Bill Press, Ed Shultz, Randi Rhodes and Tom Leykis ...those 'revolutionaries'?
    WTF is a '2nd amendment remedies'?

    Are you drinking again?
