Less than two weeks after one of the nation's deadliest school shootings, the No.2 Democrat in the U.S. House, Steny Hoyer, compared Republican tactics for dealing with the nation's debt limit to someone threatening to shoot a child hostage.

"It's somewhat like taking your child hostage and saying to somebody else, 'I'm going to shoot my child if you don't do what I want done.' You don't want to shoot your child. There's no Republican leader that wants to default on our debt, that I've talked to," Hoyer said at a Capitol Hill press conference.

Hoyer's comments came in response to a question about the Treasury Department's notice that the nation was approaching its debt limit. He criticized Republicans for previous resistance to raising the debt ceiling and used the gun analogy to argue that the issue should not be part of the negotiations involving the fiscal cliff.

Darn tablet ! Ha, ha,... It is acting up today... Can't someone with a great pair of stelleto heels just kick him in the , NADS ??

Ms. Freedom Butterfly, I do think Steel Toed boots would be more fitting for the job........

Gene...... I wear both. My Harley boots would also work! Lol...:))

Democrats are so stupid. They should change their name to commucrats or demonists or something that is more fitting to their agenda.

All our mocking the ignorant will not help the cause.

We need to think above them.

We know they speak their stupidity over and ... like a mantra. 

Now we must find ways to show them how wrong they are; without being ...obtuse ourselves.

They mostly post on liberal sites. Try communicating with them; was it Stossel or the comedeian who was  blindsided in Wisconsin?  He spoke on the streets with people asking the questions about what they were trying to think... then they started realizing what they were listening to was the talking points of MISTER Obama.

The Democrats are seeming started to making it a habit of using our children as hostages for getting what they want a way of life. Gov. Brown did it with prop. 30s tax raise in the last election for the state of California, by stating that he was going to cut education funding if it did not pass. Not once did I hear about cutting the funding to illegal aliens or for anything else for that matter.

What is even sadder was that the teacher unions as well as the union csea (california school emplyees association) I was forced to belong to went right along with it.

 

what a dick

Now....now......let's not be too honest about a guy like him.

Hoyer and O'Malley, Maryland, both need to go hand and hand to another country.  They don't help our state and think only of casinos so the poor people can get false hope up and play away their meager incomes; mostly gov't checks.

Why even carry a story such as this? We all know that there is no one in congress who is in possession of their right mind (no pun intended), and they will say the dumbest shit imaginable. They're all fruit balls without balls, so please allow some respit from the daily bullcrap that pours forth from their pie holes. Damn, I am so sick and tired of the constant whinnying about what they thing and /or do. NO ONE IN CONGRESS GIVES A SHIT ABOUT ANY OF US!!! And that includes the tea party supported ass holes.

Semper Fidelis!

Ed Allen you may be fed up but you go to far when you say the "TP supported assholes" don't care.The Tea Party is us!! We just got started three years ago with no expertise and all citizen generated efforts. Now we have many types of groups some more effective then others,but the difference is the motivation and the abilities of the people involved. As I said if you don't like the way your group operates get in there and work harder.The people who identify themselves as TP legislators suffer from all fronts and should be backed by us in their efforts.Concentrate your anger in a positive direction,we can not lose this fight .Your slashing out in all directions is like monkeys flinging poop at each other,lots of noise and activity but little accomplished.Be angry as the rest of us are but focus your energy into help that the rest of us can use to save our families and our country.Be a Patriot or be quiet.We are the only ones fighting back,you are a Marine so step up and help we need everyone pushing in the same direction. Thank you for your service ,now be a leader like you were taught.

The debt is the problem too much spending. What has Hoyer done to cut spending. He brings  up child, well he acts like one. Those Republicans won't let us keep spending so It's their fault. We wouldn't have a fiscal cliff if they would cut spending. Keep raising the debt limit every year and never quit spending. It's so ridiculous that they actually think It's a spending cut to not increase spending as much as they had planned. How long can we spend more than we take in by 1.5 TRILLION dollars every year?  Even politicians can't be that stupid can they?

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.
