Usually after a crises there is time for reflection. In order to avoid a mistake again. Unfortunately, it's going to be made, again and again. On January 15th, it will be Tea Party nutjobs time to score again in their game of chicken. You would think after gaining absolutely nothing, the nonsense would stop, but I doubt it because these people are crazy.
One good thing to come out of this, maybe Mitch McConnell will lose his seat in DC because he's not conservative enough.
John Boehner, is trying to run the asylum and failing miserably. No wonder he breaks down and cries at the drop of a hat. The Koch Brothers and billionaires who fund the Tea Party want to privatise the government, enriching them even more, the Tea Party is so ignorant or they just don't care that they are being used
I guess maybe I should be grateful that these fools didn't show up at the White House in hoods and robes, but their neo Confederate, right wing fantasy of "Christian Values" is dangerous.
So what's going to happen next?
"Supercomittee" was so successful. Paul Ryan will be the lead negotiator in this group, he did not vote for the compromise to open the
government. Get ready to hear about all of us entitled people who will
be entitled to hear about cuts to entitlements, oh and tax cuts. The result of the last Supercommittee was Sequestration because they couldn't come to an agreement. Sequestration was supposed to be so terrible that no one would let it happen,
but it did. I don't have any hope of any committee solving any
problems. The only thing I can see coming down the road where they
kicked the can are... that's right, spending cuts! They couldn't defund the ACA so the punishment will be cuts to whatever social programs that make this country humane. Back in the good old days I was always told I lived in the "richest country in the world," now we are so poor we can't even take care of our own people, supposedly.
here we are, a waste of billions of dollars and a bunch of crying about
the deficit. Then we can sit back and watch the show in January. I can
hardly wait to see another showdown of Congresscritters who get "caught up in emotion"
and berate innocent National Park Service employees and yes, that
jackass still has a job. There's not going to be any real action to stop
these idiotic shutdowns from continuing while every other civilized
country provides healthcare to their people. Don't believe me? Look at

* There's been a lot of speculation about Ted Cruz running for President, which is sprinkling extra stupid all over the Tea Party. He was born in Canada. Does that mean anything? Status as a natural-born citizen of the United States is one of the eligibility requirements. There ya go birthers.
