    In the three years, the minority has use the threat of filibuster 152 times to prevent even debating legislation. Mitch McConnel made it clear when he said his number one priority was to make sure Obama is a one-term president. He doesn't care about jobs, about the home mortgage crisis, about Ameriica -- just power for Republicans.

    Their only thought is to ruin the democratic party. They have not put forth any ideas on how to fix the problem, merely spouted rhetoric in an effort to damage Obama. If they were truly interested in fixing the economy, they would willingly take a cut in pay, give up their premium healthcare (that we pay for) and work to get the people of this country back to work. The truth is, they are not worried about the people. They can survive off their millions for a long time, even if they weren't being paid their high salaries. We, on the other hand, cannot. The corruption in our govt is not limited to the republicans or the democrats, but to the entire system of corporate greed.

    It is IMPOSSIBLE to run an economy based on debt...
    It is IMPOSSIBLE to rebuild an economy broken by debt by borrowing even more.
    It is IMPOSSIBLE to create real jobs by taxing the real economy to pay for 'government jobs'.
    But Obama and his fellow Communist loons keep on trying to do the IMPOSSIBLE
    and ignore the basic laws of economics and common sense.

    What you mean is:
    It's possible to run a broken system based on corruption, lobbyists, etc...
    It's possible to run a country wth the idea to stop, block and eliminate any possible legislation proposed by the executive power
    It's possible to run the country with a unfuntional congress
    It's possible to continuously increasing taxes to the 99%
    It's possible to keep feeding and giving welfare to the wall street and corporation
    It's possible to keep american people unemployed
    It's possible to run the country with 4 years opposition to Obama
    It's possible to run the country with the same old fashion and a dull propaganda calling communist or socialist to the people don't agree or believe with the insanes.
    It's possible to run the country with the same people's sacrifices.
    It's possible to run the country cutting education, Healthcare, jobs, cutting people rights,

    YOU KNOW WHAT.
    Then it's possible to OCCUPY wall street, the congress, the supreme court,..
    It's possible to involve american people and the world.

    This is just the begining so GET USE to the occupation.

    It is impossible to eliminate all the US government debt.
  • James R... JimTheGeek 2011/10/30 00:38:37

    If you are saying it is impossible to repay all that debt, you are correct.
    If you are saying the government MUST run on borrowed money, you are wrong.
    Like any individual or household, governments must live within their means and not
    run on debt. 40% of US government spending is borrowed money.
    This CANNOT continue.

    If the gov't repaid all its debt, it would no longer issue bonds. With no bonds being issued, the various consumer/business loans out there whose interest rate is tied to T-bill, T-bond rates would have no benchmark on which to figure their interest rates. Therfore, the gov't can not eliminate all it's debt and MUST borrow some money.

    Kudos to those who stood in the way of socialists trying to pass their agenda to gut America and sell us deeper into debt slavery. They are a cancer to America. Best wishes to their continuing to contain the leeching slugs unto 2012 when we can get people in who love America and what makes America great.

    The Idiocy of the Liberals in the Federal government caused this mess and this current administration with its Democratic allies in both houses of Congress have made it significantly worse. The Republicans just got one of the two houses back this January. Prior to that the Democrats controlled both houses since the 2006 Elections and had a filibuster proof majority in the Senate for most of that time. History will lay this at the feet of the Democrats when the truth is finally printed.

    Any time the Republicans prevented the Democrat Socialists from creating still another piece of disastrous legislation trampling our individual rights and adding to the bloat of government and to the pocketbooks of special interests, I am pleased. Since the Democrats have no useful ideas and only lust for more and more power, it is great to thwart their insidious goals.

    The republican/teabagger party have THREATENED to use the filibuster 152 times. It doesn't take an actual filibuster to stop legislation in its tracks. A threat of filibuster hold the same amount of weight as an actual filibuster.

    Depends on whether you are speaking of the Senate or the house. A filibuster is not required in the Senate since it takes 60 votes to close debate.

    What I think has been happening is that every vote for "cloture", a vote to end debate is treated as if there was a filibuster involved. Cloture & filibuster are two different animals!

    In some respects the only place a true filibuster can occur is in the House.

    Wrong!!
    "cloture - The only procedure by which the Senate can vote to place a time limit on consideration of a bill or other matter, and thereby overcome a filibuster. Under the cloture rule (Rule XXII), the Senate may limit consideration of a pending matter to 30 additional hours, but only by vote of three-fifths of the full Senate, normally 60 votes."

    How do you know Laden is dead? As far as that goes, how do you know the guy down from him is dead? What proof did we get? Are you privileged to know more than others? If they are dead, it sure wasn't Obuslim that killed them.It would have to have been BRAVE men, and that sure knocks Obuslim out of the category, doesn't it?

    The only people who use the word racist are RACIST...

    You are a MARXIST pig so there is little value in anything you have to say...be careful, the end times are near and those who embrace marxism AND support the TRAITOR obama will not have a rock to hide under when the cleansing begins...

    By the way...the TRAITOR obama’s role was to approve the killing of the COWARD osmsa because not actually pull the trigger - he is too much of a COWARD to have acted to eradicate this terrorist - basically he had no choice...there are far too many PATRIOTS close by and they would not have allowed his act treason to go unnoticed…
