The shutdown thing that really sticks in my craw

Is that all this havoc wreaked by the Koch fueled TeaBaggers apparently has been done legally.

Unless and until the DOJ, or the Senate conducts an investigation into the collusion of funding organizations threatening to support primary candidates and actually discovers something illegal, we are just screwed.

They worked the system into a position of incredible leverage. All I can think of is they are fomenting an environment conducive to rioting. They are literally taking food from the mouths of the people, which historically has never ended well, and now they are in congress crowing their achievements.

The House has the authority of removing members, but I don't see how that maneuver could work with the current alignment. Even if you could convince enough moderate R reps to go for it, could it even be brought to the floor? Is is a privileged issue?

The only thing I'm pretty certain of at this point is that this will not end well.

2. No terrorist group operating outside the United States could have done a better

 

job of shutting down our government as the repukes have. History has shown us that it's always been hard for any civilization to see or acknowledge their domestic enemy until it was too late to do anything about it......

This whole government SHUTDOWN is another bloodless coup sponsored by the GOP and a huge swath of the American public is still in denial about it!

3. They are taking away government of the people, by the people, and for the people

 

Blocking negotiations on the ceiling debt 18 or 19 times doesn't sound like an "incredible" feat to me.
