Nobody in Congress listens to constituents. You don't count until election time.

Republicans and Democrats both enjoy relentlessly kicking the taxpayer when he is down and on the ground.

They're the boy who cried wolf a thousand times over.

Fools never learn.

What will haunt the Democrats is their wonderful Obama Car, Law of the Land, if they can ever figure out how to get it working for people to sign up. The Democrats "own" this one. What I love about my plan, it says it is a Grandfathered Benefit Plan.

Twenty four billion dollars wasted to prove the tea party is destroying the republican party. Rush, ted cruz, and the rest are all nuts. The Houston Chronical said it all this morning and said they made a big mistake to back Cruz. The Joe McCarthy of the modern era. A nut case to lead the rest of the bag of nuts called the tea party.

WillGarr, are you meaning this nice old lady. Been home the whole night, I am younger than you. Back to work, the dryer just went off, folding. There are some things than collecting your Government Checks, and sitting watching TV, a little more important than YOU.

the same people who have lied about the president for 6 years also tell stories about the ACA. my money is on the ACA. most of those in ND said they did not need the EPA and could manage the drilling themselves. they said they wanted to "take that to Washington. well it is time to put up and take your proud oil leak to Washington--we do not want it here. amazing how 1 leak can make you guys such a greasy mess. t party took a well deserved shellacking this evening. don't say i told you so--i will. nobody said bring on the clowns but they came anyway--and have earned a diaper change.

This has been a defining moment for North Dakota's Republican representation in Congress. Cramer and Hoeven are both failures, and will be defined by their failure to take a stand on this issue, and represent the people that voted them into office.

"t party took a well deserved shellacking this evening."

Whether you realize it or not, it was the American people that took this "well-deserved shellacking". This includes you. You may figure that out one day, or you may continue on blissfully ignorant of the soft tyranny we're building for ourselves and our descendents. They will understand what we did to them.

the muckety mucks in minot behave like the tea party. they spend on hockey instead of flood control. to solve our deficit we must accept cuts to non-essential things and not grandstand over memorials and oarks. we need a jobs program to jump the economy and get much needed repairs to our infrastructure. it costs less to repair a bridge, monitor an oil pipe or provide flood protection than to start from scratch on a collapsed bridge, clean up an oil spill or repair flood damage. can you imagine if the entire country flooded on a scale equal to minot? get the picture?

"Dan Epstein, executive director of Cause of Action, a non-partisan watchdog group, said, “At a time when our government has ceased functioning due to an appropriations gap, it is ironic that America’s tax dollars are being doled out to an entity whose poor stewardship of our funds was well-established by Congress.” Congress voted to defund ACORN in 2009 after secret videos revealed ACORN employees coaching people on how to conduct illegal activities."

Pay no attention to that acorn behind the curtain...

And the liberal hyperbole express just keeps rolling on...

Yes, Virginia, there were Democrats in DC before, during, and now after the gov't shutdown. Wonder of wonders, only the GOP gets the blame for the shutdown. Isn't that fantastic?

Shouldn't we call what the Democrats did extortion? What did they lose in this? The American people lost big time and will continue to lose as a result of failing Dem policies.

How's your new part-time job coming along, Ralph? Yeah, that man from the gov't came to my house too, and he said he "was only here to help."

Note: I'm playing Republican apologist, because the Democrat apologists are way too many on this forum. Equal time, y'know...

Typical of moveon . org and typical of willgrr to like it.

The fondest of liberal dreams is to do away with opposition.

Why? Because we said so!

"The government shutdown has taken at least $24 billion out of the United States economy, the financial ratings agency Standard & Poor's said Wednesday."

So, assuming these figures haven't been inflated or manipulated in any way for dramatic effect, all you take from this experience is the Republicans cost the Economy $24 billion?

That's quite an impact for a three-week long partial shutdown of the federal government. Seems to me, if this is true, then the federal government has way too much control on the means of production, comrade.

Garr - "...of course I agree with the criminal Cramer"

Agreement? Oh sure, you may agree with my assessment of Cramer, but for very different reasons. You and I have no common ground. For the record, you inserted the word "criminal". You might as well be employed by that radical left web-rag, MoveOn. Republicans should be tried for sedition? Every time you lay your hands on the keyboard you set a new standard for ignorance.

From Daily Kos 9-25-13

"I've never revealed this publicly before, but I blogged on Redstate for awhile and actually made it to the top of their rec list for a couple of days. I portrayed myself as a rabidly religious fundamentalist and I got a lot of attention. During the Republican primaries I advocated the nomination of the religious conservatives eventually encouraging the nomination of Santorum...."

"Despite being nothing like what I portrayed on the blog I will say that I was no more extreme than a lot of others there. My only advantage was that of being able to write a coherent English sentence."

So liberals cheat? What a newsflash...

I can openly say that I have never blogged on any "bluestate" type of forum as a bleeding heart liberal.
