The hostage crisis continues. The terrorists continue their siege of democracy! One man could end this madness by allowing a vote on the Senate continuing resolution bill. They don't believe in one man one vote!

OK, just for argument's sake let's with this highly questionable, hypothetical, meme' the Republicans push that this nonsense is all legit. I know: it isn't, but, let's have some fun with it...
You know, as an American citizen I wish to express the opinion in an open letter that maybe you should change your mind: with caveats. Maybe we should, openly, accept the most recent offer by the economic terrorist cell: better known as the Republican Party. Of course, only with conditions that will be as non-negotiable as theirs.

Must see documentary that is an introduction to the newest insane water trick dreamed up to take water away from natural watershed habitats and viable farmland, and instead export it to be wasted in saltifying deserts, keeping city car washes gushing, and making golf courses luxurious.
Just heard on the radio that officials are finally beginning an investigation into the police actions that killed Miriam Casey, the black woman killed in Washington DC after a car chase.

"Whether or not" is inappropriate and awfully bizarre language.
Obama and Friends (and that includes his pals the Republicans) are coming in for the kill on Social Security and Medicare, using the debt ceiling as their cover crisis for their scam. Using his magic word (the one he learned from the heartless rightwingers and Chicago Schoolers) -- "entitlements" -- Obama decreed his commitment to cut benefits for the poor, old, sick and disabled before taxing corporations.
