    Just curious if the Dems have offered any type of compromise to meet the Reps in the middle on anything.

    In the middle of what? This is a tea party orchestrated stunt and there is no middle in a hostage negotiation. The ACA should never have been an issue in the first place, why should anyone have to compromise to get it back off the table where it belongs? This whole thing is the tea party scaring the rest of the GOP into holding the country hostage, and this country doesn't negotiate with terrorists.

    So that's a NO then.

    Just curious. I mean no matter how childish the Reps are, the Dems are the mature ones, correct? Shouldn't they take the high ground? I'm just wondering if the Dems are doing anything at all besides saying how bad the Tea Party is, if they are doing anything about it, or just waiting for the "childish" ones to grow up. That would be a bad strategy, yes?

    Again, the ACA should not be a part of the continuing resolution. Just because a childish demand is made doesn't mean you have to start bargaining.

    Well, I'm clearly not your intellectual equal (and very happy about that), so let me save you a little time: I'm also completely ambivalent to your opinion of me.

    It's too bad this thread has degenerated into personal attacks....

    We are all in trouble because of what's happening in Washington. This same behavior playing out on the national stage.

    Concur.

    C'mon guys, it's a real bummer when you log into what might be an intellectual discussion, only to see this childish banter instead.

    ^^^^ Now wait a minute, what would this be if I couldn't add to this discussion? And if we are all going to get our panties all bunched up, throw this where it belongs, where you are fully warned in what may transpire, the Political Arena.

    There is no conspiracy there. Both have made statements such as that in public. So, if they say that when they believe the mic is off and say the same things to the citizens of this country... Not bad people at all. Unlike Obama's continued pussification of the United States.

    Thank you James Milligan! From Tanya Milligan. ;) My husband has a boatload of brothers, but none named James! That bunch is from Texas. I have to drive hubby and son to the airport in Vegas, so I will jump the fence that day, but I can't promise what time. It all depends on hubby's schedule. I drive through the park to go to Vegas, maybe I will jump a few fences along the way. The only problem is that I bet the rangers there don't want the park closed either. I don't want to hassle them, but join them in their voice to get the parks open. Washington county is doing this in court. I hope it's done by this weekend.

    Ps... It's snowing here on the east side of Zion today. That is going to hamper visitors even more! The snow is not sticking yet though, but it's falling heavy.
