Challenging Obama, House GOP unveils new debt bill
In a blunt challenge to
President Barack Obama, House Republicans drafted legislation Monday to
avert a potentially devastating Aug. 2 government default — but along lines
the White House has already dismissed. U.S. and world financial markets
shrugged off the uncertainty.
Lawmakers deadlocked over debt deal as default looms
The United States edged closer
on Tuesday to a devastating default as Republicans and Democrats were
deadlocked over competing plans to raise the debt ceiling, one week before a
deadline to act.

Trust me Glenn Beck, if all the terrorist, murdering,
psychopaths were secret liberals,
I doubt you would be around to make such idiotic comments.

Johnson you're not.

Some things never change.
Teabaggers Squeezing the
Tea Party activists demanded House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner
deliver on budget cuts at a rally on Monday at his Ohio offices, urging the
Republican leader to "stand strong" in debt negotiations.
Palin is becoming a grandmother again (or for the first time, who knows). It's
not Bristol – Bristol, of course, is re-saving herself for marriage. This is
Palin's oldest son Track. His wife is pregnant. They got married two months ago,
and now she looks like she's six months pregnant. So you do the math, because
certainly the Palins can't." –Bill Maher

Washington, the air quality today was described as 'red.' I'd never heard that.
'Red,' somewhere between smog and barbeque sauce. You know what 'red' is? It's
bad for everyone, not just old people, sick people and babies. When it's just
bad for old people, sick people and babies, that's called a Republican budget."
This morning New York's
senior Senator, long a fighter for liberal causes, but also a recipient of Wall
supported without any qualification the Democratic surrender on raising revenues
from the wealthy to offset a fraction of the huge spending cuts that will be
in the debt limit bill.
President Obama claims the Republicans can't say "yes" to anything. Well,
apparently he hasn't asked if he can kiss their ass. - Will Durst
Bachmann was in the news this week for her migraines. They say she gets terrible
migraines. Some people say as often as once a week she is incapacitated by these
migraines for days. Even scarier news, other days she's perfectly fine."
a new interview, President Obama said he wants a 'debt ceiling deal' for his
50th birthday. Then he was like, 'But if I can’t have that – iPad.'" –Jimmy
Update on the Condition Of All Hat No
I AM NOT ASKING FOR DONATIONS
but I am asking for something else.
Hell, I've tried everything else to stop
this onslaught of bad luck over the past few years.
A wonderful longtime online friend said to me in jest the
other day that I should go to Haiti and get this curse removed from a Voodoo
priest. Well, that got me to thinking, not that I believe in Voodoo but I do
believe in the power of positive thought.
Although, I will gladly accept any religious removal attempt
of this evil that has surrounded me.

I've wished so many times I could help your site...Being on a fixed income is no
fun (And if the "Tea Party Republicans - read "the Koch brothers"- have their
say, we won't even have that!), and if I can e-mail good vibrations, positive
waves, The Force, whatever...you got it in Spades! Any time, anywhere. You're

incantations , positive energy I can send...but, I agree: No ritual animal
sacrifice!!! We have a dog (a "Chi-weenie"---Chihuahua-Dachshund hybrid--named
Flash), and three cats...so critters have a safe spot here. Peace!!!
All I have to offer is a
good ear for listening
I am out of work now for a
year now so money is not something I am exactly flush up on but I can offer lots
of good thoughts for you and the most positive of vibrations!.
I’m sorry I have not been sending art as
often as I did but I am a little discouraged myself lately.
Guess that make my advice a little
suspect but it happens to us all.
Things change Lisa, they always do and
sometimes not for the better but the wheel keeps on spinning and at some point,
it will get better.
It’s the law of odds. It does get better!
Even in chaos there is order.

Wish I could do more, but this economy has me squeezed to the bone.
I plan to ask that idiot John Boehner, who keeps saying President Obama hasn't
created jobs, what jobs have been created by the Speaker of the House? I haven't
seen any jobs from the Republicans and their tax cuts to the wealthy for the
past ten years. And why does he say we need a constitutional amendment to
balance the budget? There doesn't need to be a constitutional amendment for
members of Congress to do their job. I don't expect any constitutional amendment
to pass in his lifetime; they require 2/3 of each house, and _3/4_ of the states
to approve - the Congress can't even agree on raising the Debt limit - how can
someone expect they can get 3/4 of the states to approve something the Congress
can't agree on? Wonder what hallucinogenic drugs the Speaker is taking, to be so
out of touch with reality. He should lead by example, and create a job, by
resigning from his job. Give up his Federal government-provided health care and
other perks. Then he'd be one step closer to the average citizen that he is
supposed to represent - unemployed.
Peace and be well,
Positive thoughts to all of you and Thank you. I will immediately post if anything
positive happens! And let me know if anything positive happens to you!
