    .......President Barack Obama dodges yet another bullet:


    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/was...arks-government-shutdown-paul-ryan-obama.html

    Weekly remarks by President Obama, as provided by the White House

    "This is good news for the American people. It means that small businesses can get the loans they need, our families can get the mortgages they applied for, folks can visit our national parks and museums, and hundreds of thousands of Americans will get their paychecks on time -– including our brave men and women in uniform."

    Wow..I don't have permission to view the link. But have been keeping up on the shutdown and it will be interesting to see how it pans out by Thursday's deadline.

    Thank you for starting this thread and kudos to Pres. Obama efforts!

    .......Thanks Proverbs31Woman for what becomes a heads-up concerning the link...at the time I secured the site, it was available, but now is inaccessible. Also, thanks for your concerns involving the Shut Down and our President, Barack Obama. Let me get busy finding another link of equal value, if I can as replacement.



    P. S. This is what I am getting also:

    Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access /index.php on this server.

    Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.



    Which makes me think it was a sensitive source perhaps.

    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

    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.
