A national disgrace

  1. Just when you think King Obama can't be any more cruel, insensitive, indifferent to the American people, he and his loyal subjects allow this. A rally of Illegal Immigrants during the "shutdown".
    So let me get this straight. Our WWII vets can't go to their Memorial, but illegals can hold a rally? Our Vets who without a doubt saved the entire world from tyranny, saw their fellow Marines, Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen die by the hundreds of thousands. These men who stormed the beaches at Normandy, Iwo Jima, Tarawa, Okinawa, etc., fought under the most terrible of conditions... THESE MEN can't go to their Memorial, but a bunch of Illegals can do their thing? Something is very, very wrong with our country.

    The illegals cannot hold their rally at the WWII memorial, however. : )
  3. That's about as close as a scumbag such as yourself will ever get to criticizing your "team".

    Still curious how a drunk piece of shit such as yourself keeps his lies straight. Do you write them all down?
  4. I haven't been listening to the news today, but have any republicans managed to utter a peep of complaint, or are they all still determined to suck up to hispanics?

    I wouldn't be surprised if John McCain and Lindsey Graham, Rubio, Boehner, Cantor and a few other sellouts weren't down there demonstrating with them.

    Is this supposed to be funny?
  6. And now this. All because the King is throwing a hissy fit. Just shows the true, but now well hidden contempt that the left has for our military people. They hated us 40/50 years ago and they still hate us today. They just do a better job of hiding it...until now.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Members of Congress expressed outrage Tuesday that families of fallen U.S. military personnel are being denied death benefits while Democrats and Republicans grope for a way to end the partial government shutdown. The GOP-led House readied a quick fix.

    The Pentagon typically pays out $100,000 within three days of a soldier's death. But it says the shutdown means there is no authority now to pay the money.

    House Speaker John Boehner blasted the Obama administration Tuesday for withholding the payments. He said Congress gave the Defense Department broad authority to continue paying bills such as the death payments in a law passed just before the government shut down on Oct. 1.

    "Frankly, I think it's disgraceful that they're withholding these benefits," Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters.

    He said the House would address the problem Wednesday, and he called on President Barack Obama to sign the bill into law. Senate Democrats have been hesitant to pass piecemeal legislation, insisting the entire government be reopened.

    In the Senate, members of both parties lamented the impasse.

    Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the lack of compensation for the families of five soldiers killed in Afghanistan over the weekend was "appalling."

    "Shouldn't we be ashamed?" said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

    "Your government has let you down in a time of your need," echoed fellow Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, describing what his message to the families would be. Graham blamed Democrats, Republicans and Obama for the situation.
  7. They should have been arrested for treason.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — At least eight Democratic members of the House were among about 200 people arrested Tuesday after they blocked a main street near the Capitol during a massive rally seeking to push Republicans to hold a vote on a stalled immigration reform bill.

    Police would not identify those arrested. Representatives of the social policy organization Center for Community Change and The Associated Press witnessed the arrests of Reps. John Lewis, D-Ga.; Luis Gutiérrez, D-Ill.; Raúl Grijalva, D-Ariz.; Keith Ellison, D-Minn.; Joseph Crowley and Charles Rangel, both D-N.Y.; Al Green, D-Texas; and Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill.,

    Votes are there to break shutdown, but not the will

    "Washington (CNN) – There appeared to be enough votes in the House on Wednesday to approve legislation to reopen the federal government, according to an ongoing CNN survey of House members.

    "All 200 Democrats and 19 Republicans support passing a continuing resolution with no additional legislative strings attached that would reopen the federal government, which has been partially closed for a week over a bitter policy dispute between Republicans and Democrats on health care. With three vacancies in 435 member House, 217 votes are currently the minimum needed for the measure to win approval in the House.

    "CNN's vote count appears to bear out what President Barack Obama said on Monday."

  9. He just wants to take a vote and see what happens. I have a better idea. Let's a not, let the whole thing crash and burn and see what happens. I am SO f'n tired of listening to these worthless bastards "debate" this NEVER FUCKING ENDING bullshit. Now these asshats are talking about some silly assed 3 week extension. EXTEND THIS MOTHERFUCKER. FUCK YOU AND DIE!!

    And yet congress and Obongo are still getting paid during the "shutdown"

    The entire military should organize some sort of work stoppage in protest.
