• This is a political forum that is non-biased/non-partisan and treats every person's position on topics equally. This debate forum is not aligned to any political party. In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold. We are here to discuss them in a civil political debate. If this is your first visit to our political forums, be sure to check out the RULES.

Oh Jeez. Has our society boiled down to one big drama after the other?

the thread headline mirrors the entire Washington establishment. a bunch of hyperbole.

Well, it appears that it is contagious. We seem to increasingly be a population whose loudest and most persistent mantra is "o-my-god o-my-god o-my-god".

I made the distinction. I guess some people have more respect for our older vets.

It doesn't surprise me at all that those people would happen to be Republicans either.

However, you probably shouldn't go around accusing people of not researching a given issue simply because they fail to make a partisan connection on something that was never presented as being explicitly partisan in the first place.

Accused? Well if the shoe fits.

I feel sorry for the vets who won't get paid. Hopefully it will only be a short delay. At the same time, I have to ask is anyone really surprised? Not me. :shrug:
