The year has started well. Torrent by Lindsay Buroker. First in a series. Fun, light romp that combines Dr. Jones and trek fandom. A new author for me.

It looks like the government shutdown could go on until a larger deal is made combining the budget resolution with the upcoming debt ceiling crisis.

Meanwhile, Republicans continue their efforts to deflect the blame, insisting it’s the Democrats who won’t be reasonable. The government is shut down because House Speaker John Boehner won’t bring the Senate’s resolution to the floor for a vote, but that compromise, a clean CR at the Republican budget level, isn’t enough for Republicans, who have redefined ‘compromise’ to mean that they get everything they want.

In terms of what they want, Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) had this to say: “We’re not going to be disrespected. We have to get something out of this. And I don’t know what that even is.”

After the much-publicized incident at the World War II memorial in Washington, Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) confronted a park ranger, saying “The Park Service should be ashamed of themselves” for closing the memorial, as if he himself hadn’t voted to close it.

It’s like being back in high school.

Republicans continue to insist that they get something in return for not destroying the country, with some talks centering on repealing the medical device tax, which has bipartisan support. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said, “I’m for changing the medical device tax, but I will not do it with a gun to my head.”

Of course he doesn't know what it is; he's just following the orders of his wealthy (The 1%) handlers. Can we say, "Puppet?"

BP should have never been permitted to do business in the United States again after the first oil spill! We don't need them!

Well. Thank goodness it wasn't some junk piece of equipment that failed.

"The distillation unit, which came online in July 2013, is the centerpiece of a nearly $4 billion overhaul that enabled the nation’s seventh-largest refinery to process more heavy Canadian oil from the tar sands region of Alberta."

Anything that criticizes doctrine in real-world terms is generally called "sacrilege" or even "heresy", isn't it?
