That is just terrible, those politicians are heartless if they don't first cut their own expenses before taking away our National Treasures and Historical sites. The Whitehouse is not really a big deal but the Smithsonian is worth fighting for.

Reducing government waste would be another good place to start.

Quote from Boehnor on sequester bill-- "I got 98% of what I wanted!"

Get rid of that useless turkey B1B bomber that costs a fortune to keep in the air, breaks constantly, and has no real mission, thus the fact that they have already mothballed half of the fleet. Build a 100 more B52s and save Billions.

Dusty, Congress would be the one in charge of the US Defense Department. The Pres only controls the day to day operations.

So, disty, is my quote incorrect? Would John Boy have said that if he did not put most all of the bill together "98%" or approve of it all. We have done little but compromise to the right wing position and this was no different. You don't have the guts to admit that your boys are nuts and wrong, but then again, so are you disty.

Dusty, you need to chill out or you will give yourself a stroke. I will give you the same advice I gave to JackAaaas and evidently he followed; Smoke some pot and lighten up.

Sooooo, disty, Boehnor did not say that or did not mean that or maybe in your mind he wasn't there. Oh, and those 400 plus filibusters in the Senate by the Repubs did not happen. Well, maybe the international report of torture of US prisoners did not come out this week either. You wingers are right in there.... Alzheimers anyone.

Well, disty, you post and post and your blogs lead us to believe that you are on drugs. I have been searching for the Minnewauken lead thinggyyyy but alas, it does not exist on this blog. So where did your feeble mind pick that up, disty.

Isn't it amazing that people can get on the blog and make any kind of accusation they want and get away with it. Billdon'tevergetit is a complete loser and liar. You are the poster child along with disty for ignorance being bliss.

Dusty, you have been below everyone's level for years both here and on the other blogs you blabber on. Never do you bring a factual discussion to the table. You only deal with miss conceptions, dishonesty, innuendo, hatred, and anger. You not only live it, you splash it around.

Gosh, dusty/billdon'tgetanything, you two would make up anything to justify your unjustifiable positions. The Republicans are the party of obstruction and have done so for five years. They are still doing it. They wanted the sequestration and Boehnor got what he wanted. If you ever did research from independent sources, you would finally have the ability to speak intelligently about the issues. The Republican party does not exist anymore. It is a group of power hungry radicals who work for the rich and the big corporations. Your posts border on the ridiculous. You both have to post again and again aimlessly into your lunacy in the vain attempt to pacify your own minds (what little there is of it).

Gosh, it looks like peat and repeat.

Code word: Republican aka mean & nasty. Broad generalization status, highest.

Code word: Democrat aka noble & virtuous. Investigative status, iffy.

Code word: centerfield. Misnomer alert status, highest.

All agents: proceed with rightful skepticism.

CORRECTION NOTICE: Republican philosophy is: make *****up,blame it on Democrats,then distort the truth to prove the B.S. we previously talked about. Republicans make everyone feel that if they work with the other party, they will be outcast from there own. THANK YOU!
