The Weather Channel has assembled an impressive photo gallery of the flooding that hit Colorado this week. Over 170 people are still missing and 4 have been confirmed dead while over 2,000 have been evacuated.

Meanwhile, Senator Mike Lee, the author of the Senate bill to defund Obamacare, along with the Club For Growth and the Heritage Foundation have thrown their support behind the Coalition of the Willing. They’re all-in on the government shutdown.

Come October 1st, some feathers will be ruffled, because John Boehner may have no choice other than to pass a continuing resolution with Democratic votes.

    “Come October 1st, some feathers will be ruffled, because John Boehner may have no choice other than to pass a continuing resolution with Democratic votes.”

    Hmm.

    1) Ruffle some feathers or 2) cause catastrophic damage to the country, to its citizens, to global security and to the global economy.

    What a dilemma. It is so difficult to figure out what the moral, ethical, conscientious, and proper option is, isn’t it?

      But if the Grim Weeper ruffles some feathers, his caucus will yell at him some more and won’t be his friends. He has no good options left besides pouring himself another scotch.

    Considering how John Boehner survived an attempted coup earlier this year – mainly because nobody else in the Republican party wanted the job of Speaker of the House – you’d think he’d simply tell members in his party to shut the fuck up and start acting like adults representing their constituents and not like spoiled brat kids in need of a heavy dose of Ritalin.

    But alas, that would require strong leadership. Something that’s not been found in Boehner’s DNA, nor ever will be.

      And he might have to think about getting a job for which he would be expected to work.

      Well, I wish someone would tell him that it’s not found in the bottom of a shot glass, either.

    Weird. Over 75,000 were evacuated in the flooding in my home Calgary this summer and only 4 died. Looking to be far more in this tragedy.

    Seriously searching for John Wayne the media has collectively lost it’s mind.

    These are the thoughts of a reformed conservative on the Syria situation and why Obama is not losing this ‘battle’, and why everyone is still waiting for the emergence of John Wayne to give to tell them what to do.

    The question is how long they can keep Obamacare a secret.
