Why the democrats are scared out of their minds
« on: October 02, 2013, 04:55:31 PM »
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Two days of "shutdown" and so far the world hasn't come to an end.  People here in Pennsylvania seem to be going about their daily business as if there was no crisis.  With any luck, they'll get used to the idea of a government that only delivers what is essential.

I hope congress hangs tough right through the debt ceiling deadline and forces government to figure out how to operate without borrowing any more.  Now THAT would be something truly earth-shattering.

That would be monumental if it were to happen. Maybe that's why the democrats have resorted to all this name calling like a bunch of school kids. They're afraid the money will be cut off.   :laugh:

This sudden bravery on the part of Republicans has the Left freaking out.

Ain't that the truth? I am sure we could all add examples of Leftist hysteria and not all of it coming from the Usual Congressional Suspects.

It's definitely entertaining.

Well, I am contacting my Republican representatives and encouraging them to hang tough.

They need to hear from us to know how much support they have.

Otherwise they'll listen to the insane-o-rats who do call in...

I sent an e-mail to my congressman (Joe Pitts) yesterday.

I wish I had a representative who appreciated my point of view.  All I have are feckless parasites like Schumer and Gillibrand.

You need to get out of NYC.  I'm amazed you're still capable of clear thought.

People in flyover country couldn't care less.

They're more concerned about feeding their families and affording health insurance...hopefully not with a government doctor and government panels.

We just moved out of Sodom (or is it Gomorrah) to Nassau County, but now I'm stuck with Steve Israel, another effing dumbocrat.
