This is a blatantly one-sided political post... bad form for an "entertainment" website... seriously Squirlz, bad form. Oh please. Spare me your high-minded objection to "blatantly political posts" on an "entertainment website."
First, political links have ALWAYS been a part of the I-A-B mix.
Second, I just went through 5Cats' last dozen posts that openly ridicule the U.S. president or openly ridicule liberals: NOT ONCE did you offer even a single word of objection.
Bottom line: The majority of Americans feel the government shutdown is harmful to the country and hold the Tea Partiers responsible. If you can`t accept those simple facts, you`re going to have to live your life inside a reality-proof bubble.

@bophus: #1 It was Obama's sworn policy from Day Zero: NO COMPROMISES at all! You`re blaming the wrong side. #2 The Repub House has PASSED 6 funding bills which are now "stuck" in the Democrat Senate. HOW is that not the Democrat`s fault? Especially since Obama has sworn to VETO anything which touches his precious ObamaCare in any way, shape or form.
The White House (Obama) has ordered many gov`t agencies to ILLEGALLY shut down the most popular and helpful things the gov`t does. You think the WW2 Memorial is BARRICADED BY ACCIDENT? The WW1 Memorial isn`t barricaded...
Tell me again how it`s "not Obama`s fault"... he`s had 3 years to "work with the other side" and even his own side!! Nothing. SCOAMF.

@5catz. If you think what the republican offered were compromises, you need to relearn what that word means. A compromise is not when one side says "I dont want cake" then the other side brings a different flavor of cake back and then gets mad when they refuse it again. They republicans havent been trying to compromise on the healthcare issue, why would the democrats? It has to work both ways. If you dont like this law, too bad, it is a law. They were hired to uphold the laws of the land. If they dont like it, quit. Just stop wasting everyones time

@phosphoreign. You are out thousands of dollars of tax write off's because of Obamacare and you are not happy about it. I am pretty happy about it, because I shouldnt have to be making your taxes through my taxes. Isnt that your argument as well? You shouldnt have to pay for everyone else? Or does it only work when they are a different skin color or financial status and isnt you?
