Once again, the government is being held hostage by House Republicans, led by the orange crybaby, John Boehner. Man, he pulls this stunt more often than a teenager pulls his boner on the internet. Only Boehner’s boner is that you can balance a budget without raising revenue.

The Republicans keep trying to get people to fix this phony debt crisis. Phony because they won’t allow the one thing that can really affect debt. Srsly, I’d never ask HIM to help balance my home budget. “What are THESE items, food, clothing, home…you don’t need more than that McDonald’s salary–just trim those down a bit and you’ll be doing fine. Increase the guns and ammo expenditures, you never know when you’ll have to barge in somewhere and stand your ground.”

Speaking of which, there’s another stand your ground case in Florida, a man opening fire on a carload of teenagers because they wouldn’t turn down their music. Do you start to think that some people have no idea that “stand your ground” doesn’t involve running out and shooting anyone who disagrees with you?

Enough said.
