    This is a big ****ing deal and is the tip of the iceberg .
    Greetings, NIMBY.

    Why would the people riot, in your opinion? Their lives should improve overall, and even a small thing like turning the street lights back on will help. What am I missing here?

    Any time Pol, stay tuned as one never knows what will happen come 1 January and update number 5.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Great comment by Chuck Todd on Chris Matthews about Kingston sounding normal on PPACA..
    Jack then got pounded on his rightist wing and called a RINO, showing how hard it is to get anything done..
    As we talked earlier, Congress needs a gag rule when they are in session or nothing will happen .

    I know, but I am apprehensive about what plans the GOP may have. I hope they've learned...

    That would be nice. Kingston represents the Augusta area.

    then try chris hays, he is in the time slot between chris Matthew's and Rachel maddow.

    I doubt it, I highly doubt it. 4 things to look for in the coming year. 1. January CR expires and the government needs to be funded for the rest of the FY. 2. February's Debt Ceiling debate. 3. How many Tea Party Candidates will try to primary out what would be Republican winning candidates in the general election much like Mourdock vs. Lugar. 4. The FY 2015 budget due on 1 Oct 2014.

    All are potential pitfalls for the GOP that I am sure they fall into at least a couple of these. I am not sure the GOP learned anything from the last shut down as they are now going all over the place saying, "See, we were right." Well, they may have been or not, but not is not the way one learns from mistakes.

    I may not have explained it perfectly..
    If you're a retired policeman at $40,000 a year pension, you may go as low as $8,000 a year--
    Only 18% of your previous public pension..I think I'd be rioting..
    This is the tip of the iceberg Polgara for states and municipalities that are billions in debt..
    Really sickening is to watch million-dollar accountants come in to "fix" the pension by stealing it .

    My concern with the GOP that hits homes for you is that the Post Office pension scenario has not been cleared up..
    I'm wondering where your grown child is on that one these days .

    It isn't the first city to go bankrupt, and it probably won't be the last. Sad... Too many promises made that aren't going to be kept because there is not enough money to do so. What do you think our lives are going to be like in the future, with a national debt of $17 trillion dollars currently, and still climbing?
