    Re: Shutdown Pool - When does it reopen?

    I guessed sometime towards the end of the month around the Halloween weekend when it will get less attention. But honestly who could possibly know.

    But, no sense in helping you with reality. There is too much good smut on those political porn sites you like, who am I to deny you your pleasure? Be careful, though, too much of that stuff and you could go politically blind.... wait, too late.
    What a surprise, a site that is mostly liberal to begin with. You are politically blind my friend. You think Obama and company can continue to **** working Americans and get away with it without reprecussions. SHUT IT DOWN AND KEEP IT SHUT DOWN

    So basically you think that the republicans should fold on health care?

    It isn't folding. It is accepting the legality and legitimacy of legislation that has passed and the numerous rebuffs we have received trying to stall or remove it. Bringing down the government is not a legitimate course of action.

    Passed against the will of the republicans constituents. So you think they should ignore their voting block?

    Reams of legislation are passed against the wishes of constituents. This is not license to bring down the government and threaten our credit. Do you not see how crazy it is to reduce the threshold for shutdown to that level? This isn't even a negotiation it's our party demanding a piece of already enacted legislation be altered, delayed, or defunded. It's ludicrous!

    Remember this the next time we have this fight under a Republican President and Democrats explain that they are just fighting for their constituents.

    What, exactly, is threatening to our credit more than incurring more debt without an ROI on that investment?
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    IOW, it's not important enough to YOU. You certainly don't speak for everyone else. PLENTY of people oppose Obamacare. Just read some threads.

    To the bolded part, as if that hasn't happened before?

    Re: Shutdown Pool - When does it reopen?

    Which part(s)? Some parts never shut down, and some have already re-opened. Do you mean when will the last of the selected part no longer be shut down?
