2. The GOP members of Congress are shitting themselves

As soon as the Senate Dems put a mushroom stamp on their most recent "compromise"bill, they will scramble to pass the clean CR before midnight. I love that the President and the rest of the Dems are standing up to their stupidity. Obama doesn't flinch, just ask Osama Bin Laden...

5. Funny how they say the government doesn't help business and only gets in the way...

yet the parasites on Wall St. panic when the government isn't going to be there to subsidize their gambling or spend money with their big corporations.
If their economic theories were anywhere close to correct the market should be booming right now.
