Recently, I posted several incidents where what was reported as news wasn’t exactly News. CBS reported a story about the attack on our embassy , which was totally bogus. Hillary Clinton got blamed too an d of course, the President, who did nothing wrong. But the Right Wing, foaming at the mouth Radical Republicans, ran with this false story.
Now, we who are Progressive, are not perfect, but we sure as Hell don’t shut down government over a non-issue as raising the National Debt. Hell, even Reagan did this. And, as Obama pointed out, this is money we have already spent. Neo-Cons are such idiots. They want to cut food stamps, health care, while they enjoy all the perks they would deny. It is timwe to take back what is ours.
