The Circus

From veronica_rich because I couldn't say it better:

Someone Finally Sort of Said it

I personally won't endure anything more than a delay in my federal tax refund, part of which I use to pay my local tax (which likely would not have been a problem, had I sent it in a week earlier).

It's really nothing to complain about, considering that soldiers fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan and Libya (not to mention those stationed here) won't get paid at all...

...while Congress will continue to collect their paychecks.

And we know this is all because they love America are concerned for their tea bag religious right base.

this is why we need term limits and an amendment.

However, I do hope it shuts down, and I am not of the religious right.

I'd rather pay the military and not pay congress.

Remeber who did not do their jobs when they had majority rule to create a budget required by law. Now, tell me logically, why the majority party did not pass a budget last year, when, well, they were the majority and could have passed it easily? And because they did not pass the budget (for whatever reasons they only know), we the collective have this mess, with no real leadership, and no budget and havent had a budget.

So religion has nothing to do with it. It is a inefficent govt and the incompetent elected officals not passing a budget, which was part of their job-by law. No one ever wants to talk about that fact.

The budget issue started because the last congress did not do their core job.

You have a point.

It's funny how the few democrats that had the guts to actually speak up and do what they thought was right didn't get re-elected. And we are left with a party of wimps.

However, I do believe the religious right has something to do with it.

The real issue is spending is way out of line with revenue. HC isn't what people are lead to beleive it is. I read the bill. So we are going into debt over something that wont deliver the service that seems to be promised.

I am a tea party member, but the tea party isnt a party, it is collection of mostly fiscal conservatives. But every side has it's hipocrites and nut cases. I remain steady that I beleive the problem with the conservatives and the damn repulicans is the focus/pandering on the relgious right. They should be focusing on teh educated, secular middle/moderates. On a whole, I don't like the nanny state or liberty reducing (restrictive rights of indvidual choice) govt. That is why we dont have social equality- we have the nanny state and liberty reducing legislation.

Yes there are idiots and wimps on both sides, I cringe and get angry at the idiots trying to redefine rape. It's one of those "what the hell are they thinking and who are they talking to?" moments.

What neither party is getting right now is the majority of the nation wants them to fix the budget, reduce the spending and debt, stop printing money, and focus on jobs, and they are doing none of that. Instead they focus on red herrings or unsovlable so called moral issues (which IMHO should be left to individuals to decide). Or they pass intrusive regulatory and liberty resticting legislation in a incremental way to show progress (although much of that kills jobs), because they dont have the guts to do the hard and necessary clean up work.
