    Amash got a RINO primary today.
    More and more TEAparty Repubs will be getting RINO'd and gored.

    The Republican Guard in Iraq for Saddam.
    Would this be like the Republican Guard in DC for Boehner?

    There are plenty of places Dems are begging to "converse" on.
    Keystone, giving up the medical device tax, chained CPI, accepting Ryan's budget number which he then moved lower,
    Dems want some "loophole relief", as outlined in Sen. Coburn's plan.
    As soon as the clean CRs and debt ceiling occur, Dems will "converse".

    Holidays affected by rogue Republicans will be Thanksgiving and Christmas, for the fourth year in a row.
    In today's day and age, noone messes with Orange Halloween.

    Who's talking about civilian law enforcement? We're talking about squashing a revolution.

    The Koch Brothers’ ‘Samson Option’ | Consortiumnews

    "Of course, many pragmatic rich folk understand how the extraordinary U.S. system – built by the sweat and ingenuity of countless “average Americans” and protected by the blood of heroic common citizens – has made their fortunes possible. These patriotic multi-millionaires cringe at the spectacle of a U.S. government shutdown and panic at the thought of defaulting on U.S. debt.

    But the right-wing billionaires and their political front groups welcome the current chaos. Indeed, they began planning today’s fiscal crisis as soon as their stunning defeat of last November sank in. Rather than behave as a loyal opposition, the Right started plotting soon after Obama took the oath of office a second time, as the New York Times reported:

    “Shortly after President Obama started his second term, a loose-knit coalition of conservative activists led by former Attorney General Edwin Meese III gathered in the capital to plot strategy. Their push to repeal Mr. Obama’s health care law was going nowhere, and they desperately needed a new plan.

    “Out of that session, held one morning in a location the members insist on keeping secret, came a little-noticed ‘blueprint to defunding Obamacare,’ signed by Mr. Meese and leaders of more than three dozen conservative groups. It articulated a take-no-prisoners legislative strategy that had long percolated in conservative circles: that Republicans could derail the health care overhaul if conservative lawmakers were willing to push fellow Republicans — including their cautious leaders — into cutting off financing for the entire federal government.
    "

    GEE, I wonder if it could be Teabagger's and Republican's fault! Tell your friends.

    good question. Because they caved to the Democrats.
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.
