Well, another crisis averted. Time to rest up over the holidays before the next crisis ensues. The politicians in Washington can't seem to govern except by crisis. This is especially true of the Republicans in general and the Tea Party, specifically. Ted Cruz and his ilk have proven that they don't have the brains that God gave tuna fish, but they do have the smell. If you think that these morons will spend the time the brief reprieve gave the country trying to make things better, think again. They have an agenda of indifference to the plight of others and greed which doesn't seem to include ANY room for compromise. We can only hope that they will be voted out of office, but, again, I don't hold out much hope. You can only imagine the minds of anyone who would vote them into office in the first place.

Way to go Tea Party.

The U.S. government just went through day 3 of the closure due to the idiocy of a small group of radical GOP house members. For most of the American people, the impact is not all that great...unless, of course, your only decent meal was at a Head Start program or you were going into a clinical trial for your incurable cancer...or you are one of 800,000 federal government workers....or...
And then, there's the uncertainty of the economy which keeps businesses from hiring, or the middle class from buying or ... Way to go GOP! Your tantrum over the ACA has managed to affect a large number of American persons. I hope your constituents aren't trying to buy a house, get an SBA loan or otherwise deal with the Federal government, because...hey...it's closed, thanks to you.
