Are Republicans seeking to force a shutdown of the federal government?

Should we do 'Whatever It Takes' to balance our budget and reduce spending?

Get This: House Speaker John Boehner, an Ohio Republican, said on Feb. 17 that he won’t accept a short-term extension of the government’s current spending authority without cuts.

How far is too far?

Should Congress approve short-term extensions with spending cuts in the interim?

The Republican-controlled House voted 235-189 to cut at least $61 billion from fat-cat spending! This could set the stage for a dog-fight with Dems! If so that dog-fight could bring government to a standstill after March 4! That is when the current continuing resolution expires.

So, do what it takes? Or play it safe?

THERE IS NO PLAYING IT SAFE.  IF WE DON'T TAKE THE SHORT TERM PAINFUL ROAD, WE WILL SURELY SUFFER ON THE LONG TERM PAINFUL ROAD WHEN OUR ECONOMIC SYSTEM, MONEY SYSTEM, AND POLITICAL SYSTEM COLLAPSE AROUND US, AND WE ARE TALKING DECADES, IF NOT THE REST OF THIS CENTURY.  THE GREAT DELEMMA IS THAT PEOPLE WANT "FREE STUFF" AND WHEN RESPONSIBLE LEADERS DO THE NECESSARY CUTS AND ADJUSTMENTS TO TRY TO TURN THIS COUNTRY AROUND, THE "TAKERS" AND MORONS WITH SHORT TERM MINDS WILL TURN ON THE RESPONSIBLE POLITICIANS AND  LIKELY THROW THEM OUT OF OFFICE IN 2016.  THIS WILL LIKELY PUT US BACK ON THE ROAD TO THE DISASTER (Hillary and Bill) OF A BIG GOVERNMENT, MARXIST SOCIALIST STATE.  I BELIEVE THE WEAK LINK IN OUR SURVIVAL HOPES IS WITH THE MORON VOTERS, THE ILLEGAL VOTERS, THE TAKERS, THE DRONE CELEBRITY WORSHIPERS AND THE VOTERS WHO JUST DON'T HAVE A CLUE,  WHO THINK SHORT TERM, AND WILL SELL THE COUNTRY OUT FOR SHORT TERM GAIN.  THE DANGER OF THE FAILURE OF THIS COUNTRY LIES IN THE PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY THE GROUPS I HAVE LISTED ABOVE.  BUT, WE MUST PERSERVERE AND HOPE FOR THE BEST.  WE MUST EDUCATE THE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!

The only time we are safe is when the Government IS shut down!

How about stop spendng money on oblunders massive failed green energy programs, giving billions to other countries?

How about we take the god damn planes aways from him and the butt wife of his, that alone would decrease the amount of feseral spending,

Here is the thing, Obama does not want to have a balanced budget, to do so would require he spend more time doing the job he wanted and not making sure he is home at 6:30 for dinner, when the reality is the lying prick was more likely than not on a golf course, giving some lame ass blame the repbulicans and Bush speach, playing basketball or on vacatation

I understood it was the law that Congress and the House pass a budget every year, yet since this god damn anti American hating Muslim loving idiot was put in the White House all they can do is pass these RC's so there is no accountability and the Democraps can lay blame for all the failures mandated and created by the giftless wonder on everyone except himself, thats  all the DNC was,

Every single one of them that either called Repubs a Nazi or Nazi related anything, was caught in lie after lie that that bitch wasserman needs to be throw out on their ass's and suffer the consequences of their actions, enough is enough

HELL NO! 'Playing it safe' is the verbiage of appeasers who in the end give evidence of their idiocy.

No more debt ceiling extensions. It will not shut the Government down, but will require we match expenditures with revenue. We would have to prioritize our expenditures which means many things the Government shouldn't be doing would end. Immediately suspend STAFFERS. Make Congress LEGISLATE, not dictate. Cut out the Departments of Education, Energy, Commerce, Injustice and EPA to start.

TO WE THE PEOPLE- Do you want to shut down the tyranical, over reaching, oppressive Govt.  The quickes way is to QUIT PAYING TAXES & QUIT FILING TAXES!!! 

Obama will threaten the Military, and cut their pay, and people will cave.  It is high time, we stood up, and said not only "No", but "Hell No!"  Let the chips fall where they may.  We must call their bluff, and mean it, until we do, no one can take us seriously.  We should be putting pressure on our Legislaters, big time.  Phone calls, e-mails, Faxes.  If we sit by and do nothing, we end with the same result. How long do you think Obama could really hold up Military Pay without there being action taken against him.............We are worrying about what Government shutting down?  The little bitty piece of Government the People still have claim to?

Jo- Obozo has already started cutting the Military.  It was announced today that he is giving 3,000 Naval Officers & Sailors the pink slip.  That will be to our advantage!  He just pissed off these 3,000 Military personnel.  These were career soldiers.  The Military hates Obozo to the point that now these 3,000 vets will come over to WE THE PEOPLE's side & will begin to join the various Militias around the Country for when the SHTF.

If we allow Obama to go through the vote, we will lose. He will have the vote set up to win. There is no doubt in my mind that will happen. He has control over all he needs to have a vote won with all the machines that we use and all the people that does what he says..He will cheat the vote and we will still be sitting here with 4 more years of this crap. What does everyone think we should do???

Our money has even been sent over to some of the people that has something to do with the first attempt of the bombing of the world trade center.

Randy- Our taxes have funded the Muslim Brotherhood & other Terrorist groups, our taxes fund 60% of the UN budget, etc.   What gives these people the right to OUR MONEY?  There are between 100,000 & 150,000 Americans who have already quit paying & quit filing taxes.  If everyone could start a movement nationwide to quit paying & quit filing WE THE PEOPLE could reach over 1,000,000,000 strong.  The Govt. could never prosecute that many people & we could shut down our Criminal, Tyranical, Oppressive & Over Reaching Govt. & the UN!!!

OK, Boehner, how 'bout this.  You put your pork on the table, and have every Republican do likewise.  That will show the Dems you are serious.  Not willing to do that??  Just like I figured.  You are as full of hot air as they are!  Put up or shut up! It is time for both the big parties to act like adults, and stop pointing out the other guy's shortcommings while hiding your own.  Enough already!

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
