    work for the government and the rest of us.....aint' gonna work.  We stand in solidarity with our federal worker brethren and will fight to get them their backpay once the republicans give up the ghost of assholes (coughGingrichcough) past.

    Divide, divide, divide is all the republicans seem to know how to do.  Then destroy.  Any contractor will tell you the demo is the easiest part of any job.  It's the building that is tricky and takes the smarts.

    Listening to the NRA on school safety is like listening to the tobacco companies on cigarette safety. (h/t nightsweat)

      Divide, destroy, and all the while say with every voice available that Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and the rest of the Ds are dividing and destroying.  The problem is, their credibility is getting thin, particularly with the shutdown.  Even my Republican friends recognize the farce of saying the Dems shut down the gov't, that Obama won't and hasn't compromised, and that Reid is keeping the gov't closed.  When the rank-and-file Rs can't even pretend to believe their own leaders, they are in a world of hurt.  I hope that means this will come to an end soon.

      I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
