GOP's internal debate over a government shutdown

With a government shutdown just days away, Congressional Republicans are fighting among themselves: Some, like Rep. Sean Duffy (WI), will vote to avoid a government shutdown only if Congress defunds Obamacare. Others, such as Rep. Peter King (NY), are calling that tactic a lost cause.

    unfortunately, as wolf blitzer is a biased Zionist we cannot hope to get an honest, neutral opinion re the Syrian crisis re the entrance of the Iranian official who may change, for the better, the political situation in Syria.

    killing more Syrians will not make us safer, nor will it make America friends in the middle east. we have been killing many civilians, far more than asad has, but has it worked for us? only America's friends, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar want to attack Asad as they deem him a threat to their corrupt rule. there is a saying: "show me your friends and I will tell you who you are!"

    The world looks to us as the hope for a better future for their children. Obama had promised that, let us hope he will keep his word now that he will not be running again.

    I live with hope.
    let us try to solve our problems peacefully and honestly. America has so many problems to be addressed at home which require both resolve and money===both of which we need a lot of.

    once we were admired and loved by much of the world. now we are feared. how sad. we must show the world that the people of these united states still want very much to make this world a better place and hope that we will be joined in the effort to do so by all who desire a better life.
