Not at all. Those are the main issues in American politics at the moment and I pay attention to all of them as well.

Shame for, as Sam said, "not caring" if it's about anything else. Focusing on issues is fine, but focusing so hard to block out other issues is just as bad as not caring about those issues at all.

Eh, it was just me being miffed that no one would find what I found interesting interesting.

This thread does tend to explode in indignation about those things I've mentioned though. And I'm one of the participants.

We post what we find that pisses us off isn't that what this thread is about? We're not blocking ANYONE out so don't assume it. If someone wants to post and dicuss something else THEN DO IT, they're the ones at fault if they're not speaking up. Why should the rest of the thread be penalized or bitched at for just posting what we want to.

Wow, ok, why am I being "bitched at" for saying something that pisses me off about politics? "Isn't that what this thread is about?"

I don't get what I did that deserved the sudden bitch out but ok then. I'll just take a steop back and let you chill it out.

You seem to be assuming a lot about this thread while I'm simply pointing out that if we're posting things that we're pissed off about then that's what we're doing however we should not be kinda under handedly stabbed at for not posting things to someone elses liking because that's just not what we posted. So what if the thread is heavy on issues like that, if you wanna post something different do so

You seem to be purposefully interpreting things I don't mean at all.


What I said was that it's a shame that people focus everything on these topics and shut everything else out. Not that these topics aren't important, or that you're not allowed to do that, or that you're a horrible human being or a bitch for doing it. Just that it's a shame. Then you just jumped from the bushes and bitched me out.

Sorry that I find it sad when people exclusively focus on one issue in politics, but that's the purpose of this thread, to rant and vent about issues in politics.

I find it hypocritically hilarious that when I did post something different you hauled ass to bitch me out. I'm damned if I do, damned if I don't, apparently.

As a DoD employee, I am really tired of all the political gamesmanship with regards to the constant threats of shutting the government down for failure to pass a budget for years, this manufactured fiscal cliff crisis that's turned into the "sequester" and the impending slugfest over yet another possible shutdown at the end of March. Then furloughs for the rest of the year (effectively a paycut), and layoffs next year, most likely.

I don't like that I'm getting a 20% paycut when Congress has said they won't take one, themselves, simply because it "cheapens" their positions (according to Nancy Pelosi). Fire all of them and replace them with penguins and we'd get about as much accomplished but with a lot less squawking.

You DO realize the intention of the post was to Sam Vimes right? You kinda jumped in the middle and accused me of bitching because of me explaining my thought process, but ok sir if my explainin is bitchin continue to think so.

I'm pretty tired of some of the entitlement debates. When ever I see one it's usually a debate between some one who thinks every one on any kind of government assistance is lazy or a crook and some one who thinks that every one should get every thing. I get disability entitlements because I'm ill. I'm not lazy and I'm not stealing any thing. On the reverse side there are some people who are dishonest and are hurting the country. But God forbid we ever get to see a reasonable discussion between two people who aren't radical on either side. I know reasonable debates don't stir up the ratings but it would be kind of nice once in a while.

Is that why you quoted me and then proceeded to talk down to me and throw in cuss words? Or is my name now Sam Vimes?


Explaining=/=bitching someone out
I didn't know "explaining my thought process" included talking down to someone, cuss words, sarcasm, and all around bitchiness.
I'll call and amend the dictionary.

A lot of people swear a lot, but there's a difference between swearing in casual conversation and swearing when you're angry.

How about we don't tell other people how to talk? Sounds good to me.

The end.

No one finds the things that I find interesting interesting either *cough, Nate Silver, cough*

This thread does tend to be an echo chamber.

Well, people had their chance to "fire" a lot of them last year and they didn't. Polls have shown (sorry, too lazy to Google citation) that people hate "Congress" as a whole but tend to like their own representatives.

But you're right - the sequester is political posturing. It will do nothing towards solving the real problem - the deficit - but cause real hardship for people in your position.

But I've also had it with "both sides are equally to blame" false equivalency. The Republican party is to blame. Too many of them are ideologues who think that compromise is not just a weakness - it's a sin against God. It's impossible to govern that way.

The Obama administration is working hard to get that message out. Public support is important and they are nothing if not media savvy. And that's the crux of the problem with Woodward. He is Bob fucking-I-brought-down-Nixon Woodward and he is doesn't take kindly to these whippersnappers trying to control the story. Access is important to all journalists, but it is imperative to Woodward (something that your pal Hitchens objected to, SV). He sees loss of access to sources as a real threat.
