    Congress has not performed its Constitutional duties since early in the Obama administration when Harry Reid refused to even put the budget to a vote. We'll just use last year's budget as the guide he said again and again.

    At least the President and Republican controlled Congress, on a straight party line vote, did pass the 2018 budget as the law requires, something Obama didn't do for most of his Presidency.

    It is the appropriations bills that actually authorize the spending that the Congress can't seem to get done. So we have continuing resolution after continuing resolution to keep the government open. I would like to lock the whole crew in an empty room and not let them out until they get those appropriate bills authorized and be done with it.

    many people have no clue about the process, they think the budget bill ends the process and just because the media says a budget deal was done that it means they actually passed a budget, the MEDIA LIES too much

    Over at the unmentionable place I have a thread going on Fake News. The degree of that is absolutely staggering.

    I did quite a bit of research on that before starting the thread and continue to monitor the syndrome.

    So it isn't so much that they lie--though they do that a LOT--but it is mostly the selective partisan way the media choose what to cover--they won't cover anything bad about Obama or high level Democrats or anybody that would make the left look corrupt--while they cover anything and everything, including the most innocuous tweets, to make anybody on the right look terrible, most especially the President and those closest to him.

    You see it in how they structure the stories, the non sequitur stuff they include in the stories, how they word it, the headlines they use, and the photos they select to accompany a story. It is so dishonest it is absolutely disheartening as well as frightening. And those on the left don't care because even when they know in their hearts that it isn't true, it is enough that they WANT it to be true to justify a fake news story.

    Since I have no idea what you're referring to with these words I will guess you're talking about an out house. Surely the activities there are unmentionable in mixed company, right? LOL Reading the remainder of your post I'm not sure my guess it too far off the target.
    Don't Worry. Be Happy!
