Many thanks Clyde for you diligence in following through!

Yes this s a wonderful opportunity for the first black president to show the wolrd that he cares more about the folks who voted him into office, and the American pulbic in general,

more then the Military Industrial Complex and

stop all 4 wars
As Commander and Chief he has the power to do that, with out asking or debating with anyone

that would cut 97% of the deficit right there

The other 3 percent would be to cut corporate welfare, and the set asides for nuclear energy producers, off shore drillers, and coal mining companies,
and Mother Eath would definatly be pleased about that

......Wow, thanks for the Thank You sister cherryblossom, looks like no one cares about our first Black President dodging yet another bullet:toast:....Peace In my sister friend, for real straight-talk.


Well, my "Thank You" was specifically for you sharing the information.


But, ultimately, IMO, it is the American people who "dodged the bullet."

Moreover, I am interested in what "Budget Cuts" were agreed upon to avoid the shutdown.

An even greater decrease in funding for Education and Health Care more than military spending (or none at all) does not bode well for our children and our Elders.

In order to avoid the shutdown, they opted to "borrow/steal from Peter to pay Paul."

.......Yes, I agree sister cherryblossom, there is a two-fold issue on the table, the future political life of our first black President and the current economical plight of American citizenry; as the former goes, so goes the latter, both dodging bullets.
