Get that man a mirror: Blogger bgates laughs, “‘It’s always the wacko birds on right and left that get the media megaphone,’ Sen. John McCain told Huffington Post’s Jon Ward.

Department of Injustice: PJMedia blogger J. Christian Adams links to a federal judge excoriating Obama DOJ Civil Rights Division lawyers, “The first time it was perjury.

Turning lemons into lemonade: Blogger OL suggests executive orders if Congress forces a debt limit government shutdown — 1) Under no circumstances will any non–military employee of the Federal Government receive any retroactive compensation for days not worked. 2) Beginning immediately, the government will cease all payments to current and former members of Congress and their staffs. 3) When Congress decides to restart the federal government, the President will not sign the enabling legislation unless it includes approval of all appointments pending before the Senate.

Who pays for what: Regarding complaints about Obamacare changes, blogger Iggy says “If Ohioans want what’s being taken away they can tax themselves $26 billion more than presently. If they don’t want to then they must have not wanted what it paid for very badly.”

Have a nice day: Blogger Rich warns about digital Maoism where so-called social justice political activists dig through lifetimes of history to try to undermine integrity ruining the day of decent people who consider engaging in public affairs.

Comment seen on a blog: “This is why I am no longer a Leftist, or Democrat. I thought the Left was about Liberal values, tolerance of other people’s ideas and expressions. And then I found out, it was only THEIR ideas and expressions. And then, they defend Sharia Law and Islamic Law, opposite to Liberal values. . . . Count me out.
