So these assholes

Are really going to shut down the government again? Wtf is wrong with our country when the political calculation the tea partiers are clearly making points to "continually shut down the government" instead of reaching a compromise? Ted Cruz was on Meet the Press just now, and he's such a dim-witted assclown? Who the fuck is hitching their stars to his wagon?! I remember learning about congressional gridlock in the 90s? Was this with Clinton or repub presidents too? Anyone?

    DH's theory is that Republicans have a fundamental dislike of government and don't care if the whole thing shuts down. Dems, OTOH, prefer a functioning government because they tend to be the champions of social programs.

    Most of the Tea Party platform revolves around small government so what do they care if nothing gets done for however long?

    Right? Governments exist for a reason. People are naturally inclined to create them because they are useful. I feel like a lot of the anti-government people are the same ones who raise holy hell to their local council person when there's an unfilled pothole on their street.

    Yeah, I was about to say the same thing. I have a friend who bitches about taxes all the time, but then her daughter's school doesn't have enough funding and the supply list is a mile long. Then she complains about that. You can't have it both ways. Taxes pay for schools and roads and other public programs. We would not function otherwise...well, it would be chaos.

    There actually are a lot of idiots in congress right now, and Boehner is a weak leader.

    Not just idiots, though. Like, dangerously stupid people who are as stubborn as animals that have pea-sized brains. His name is perfect because I pronounce it boner, and he's just a total boner.

    Everyone hates government until they need it.

    ... Or until they want to impose their "values" on who can marry whom and what women can do with their bodies.

    What makes me sad is that my family (mainly my awesome grandparents) are tea partiers. You should see how excited they get when they see the 'Impeach Obama' people collecting signatures and how they go on a rant about how he's screwing everyone over. Giant eyeroll.
