I blame us. Cruz put his reputation and all his future potential to join the good ole boy fraternity on the line. We should have been at least a million strong storming DC to support him. Screw that “conservatives have jobs” meme. Fewer and fewer people of any stripe have jobs, and even fewer are going to have jobs which will support them and their families in any meaningful way. Those vets in wheelchairs and missing legs and arms had jobs too, but they were there in DC. I blame myself. It’s great to be a keyboard warrior, send a few bucks here or there, and consider yourself to have made a real contribution and be “down for the cause”.

The men in Valley Forge left bloody footprints in the snow.

We talk about being “locked and loaded”. Most people these days are so isolated in spite of our great so-called “connectivity” in the “virtual universe”. We are atomised, and that works for the ones dividing and conquering. Paul Revere got his azz on a horse and rode for miles, calling real live humans to action,

Tribulation is coming. May God have mercy on us, because the justice we deserve is too horrible to contemplate.

For all you who are offended, I put myself at the top of the list of those who should’ve been there.

What kind of tune will the media Obamafarts be tooting in another year of two? The smart ones are running from the embarrassment now.

CNN is not doing so hot themselves. They just got pulled a few weeks ago in markets in 19 states because of inability for them and Cableone to come to terms.

“..If the Tea Party in congress doesn’t get rid of boner, they now fall into the “worthless” category...”

::::::::::::::

The Congress in general, is a total failure. They have held NOBODY, not even Obama, accountable in real terms for any of the total financial, political and governmental destruction that has been deliberately put upon America and its people. How bad does it have to get???

Once again the republicans have agreed to kick responsibility down the road for a handful of empty promises.

Make Bammy put back all his waivers and exemptions and make sure they go in effect January 1.

Hell, Boehner, McConnell, McLame, et al. won't make Bammy even abide by The Constitution, so they're not going to make him do anything. Besides, Boehner doesn't want to miss happy hour.

Boehner will not put the deal up for a vote unless a majority of Republicans support it because he knows he will be ousted as speaker if he does.

CNN who? No one’s watching....not even at the airports.

I recently learned that the building that served as the first CNN headquarters was originally the Progressive Club of Atlanta

Anyone surprised?

I don’t see how Cruz lost. He accomplished his objective in awakening the grass roots.

There is no deal yet. I really shouldn’t have to tell freepers not to believe the incessant lies of the drive-by media and the White Hut.

So... if they wanted to, how and when could they replace Boehner?

Gingrich response was impressive. How can anyone celebrate another “secret” deal.
