First, we get our regularly scheduled mass gun shooting and one more time America's inability to talk about Gun Control sensibly gets exposed.
Next, Republicans in Congress are back to their games of sabotaging lives of common Americans by Government Shutdown and Defaulting on America's Debt; all for ObamaCare since shrinking deficits make deficits as the non-issue. GOP House feels having got lesser total votes than Democrats, they have 'rights' to destroy lives of Americans by sabotaging the nascent economic recovery. Republicans want to stop functioning of American Government because they do not want a program which will give medical insurance to more under privileged people! They want to create global economy havoc unless a legally passed law is killed!!
Negativity and hate of President Obama is so full with these people that it is suffocating and it has clearly deprived America from its ability stir her course and do even basic governance.
Consequences of all this insanity are so dire and failure of political system will be so devastating that mind of a common person fails to grasp how we got entangled into this and how do we get out of this mess.
