In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

This is from a CNS new article:
"...House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said he would not include language to defund Obamacare in the continuing resolution bill when it returns to the House, stating, “our goal” is “not to shut down the government.”..."
Otherwise, the bill would have no teeth.
To add insult to injury, this was also said:
"...I believe that trying to put Obamacare on this vehicle risks shutting down the government,” Boehner said. “That’s not what our goal is. Our goal here is to reduce spending....”
Unless Boehner has been away to Mars, he should realize the government will not cut spending, unless it's forced to shut down. All the supposed bipartisan efforts are a waste and yield more disrespect for Congress.
If it takes a government shut-down, then so be it. The waste and frivolous spending is damn near horrifying and will stop, whether they control it, or they destroy the economy and it stops due to economic death.
Boehner's position is of leadership. Leading means making the tough decisions and standing firm when the results of bad decisions only make things worse. He's failing at this task, the Republicans are becoming useless as tits on a boar and the out of control government is risking the entire nation's ability to survive. It's time for this to stop.
