With Democrats blaming the Republicans and Republicans blaming the Democrats for the government shutdown, one thing is certain, there is somebody who is blame for this mess.
You can blame the Republicans for not “compromising” and “causing” the shutdown for standing by their “principles” and not passing a bill to fund the government unless it cuts out Obamacare.

The federal government is very good at distracting people. They do this so that they can exert more control over those people.
Edward Snowden. Where is he? What country is he in now? Who is going to give him asylum? Is he a hero or is he a traitor? Edward Snowden in this paper. Edward Snowden on that news report. Edward Snowden all over the blogosphere.
Wait. What? Why are we talking about Edward Snowden so much? Why is there so much attention on Edward Snowden?
Any sort of top-down accountability when it comes to education is driven by politics and not driven by the needs of students and thus squash the life out of classrooms and, contrary to the leftist mentality, hurts the poorest areas most.
The No Child Left Behind Act required every state to test every student every year and judged those students and schools exclusively on those test scores. The wreckage of NCLB is still apparent in schools across the nation.
The sad thing is that the reason Congress is demanding the President allow them to vote on Syria has more to do with the opportunity therein to extort more money out of defense lobbyist with their vote than it has anything to do with the Constitution or rule of law. They just want their piece of the war pie too.
From a friend's blog:
Recently, I wrote an e-mail to my Congressman, Rep. James Lankford, suggesting that impeachment proceedings against President Obama be considered. I feel that impeachment is justifiable because of his flagrant violations of the US Constitution. I feel that violations against the US Constitution criminal acts because this document is the highest law of the land and all other laws are secondary to this document.
Here are some excerpts from the response that I received from his office:
Oklahoma Committeeman Dax Ewbank blasts Congressman Lankford on his unwavering support of the NSA spy programSubmitted by flybeech on Wed, 08/14/2013 - 17:32
Last night, Oklahoma GOP Congressman James Lankford got a taste of our own Dax Ewbank's displeasure of Congressman Lankford's unwavering support of the NSA domestic spy program. The mood of Lankford's town hall meetings are getting a little testier. Incredibly, even the New York Times owned Daily Oklahoman even mentioned the encounter this morning.

Many of you might be familiar with my friends who's cancer treatment was forcefully taken from them, along with their money during a raid by the FBI and FDA at a natural cancer clinic in Oklahoma. I posted about it here: http://www.dailypaul.com/283254/fbi-fda-raid-on-natural-canc...
My friends are struggling to find treatment options and Yvonne's cancer has worsened.
Talked with our congressman, James Lankford, at a town hall he held recently to get his take on the Snowden affair. Turns out he doesn't understand technology (thinks that since Snowden only had access to "architecture" that he didn't have access to data, which is kind of funny if you work in IT, policy controls don't equal technology controls) and he completely trusts nontransparent political controls to protect your private data and thinks we should too.
OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City surgery center is offering a new kind of price transparency, posting guaranteed all-inclusive surgery prices online. The move is revolutionizing medical billing in Oklahoma and around the world.
Dr. Keith Smith and Dr. Steven Lantier launched Surgery Center of Oklahoma 15 years ago, founded on the simple principle of price honesty.
“What we’ve discovered is health care really doesn’t cost that much,” Dr. Smith said. “What people are being charged for is another matter altogether.”

Could anyone donate some green screen work? It shouldn't be that difficult. If a bunch of us uploaded videos of ourselves in front of a solid color background doing a video the same as the one Adam did in DC with his shotgun.
I know the statement that Adam is trying to make is very bold. He is admitting that his video was real, that the gun was real, and that he was in Washington DC. That's because he is performing an act of civil disobedience and being jailed for it, which is the point of his activism.
