    Rep. Allen West knows exactly how he'll vote when the final version of Friday night's budget deal comes before the House: No way.

    The bipartian agreement will slice $38.5 billion in federal spending, but West says that's not enough, Politico reports. So he says he will vote against the measure when it arrives in Capitol Hill sometime next week. Congress approved a stopgap measure after the budget deal to keep the federal government operating until final details in the budget deal can be hammered out.

    "It's all about the money," said West (R-Fla.).

      You apparently are unaware that Rep. Allen West was born of Mau Mau parents in Kenya and that he's a secret Muslim plotting to destroy the Republican Party and ultimately the United States.

          You don't actually consider that Wikipedia is a reliable source of information, do you?

            OK, and your suggestion would be. Let's find out just where a person should go to get the real thing.

            I would really like to know this.

            Perhaps then, I can stop stumbling all over myself, and get something right for a change

              I was being sarcastic. Wikipedia is a usually reliable source of information. The New York Times online is also quite good as is Politico.com, The Nation, Mother Jones, Huffington Post. In my opinion you have to read a variety of sources to get an accurate picture of the facts so that you can form an intelligent position. Newsmax is okay for info from the right wing. The NYTimes ls a bit left of center. The Nation and Mother Jones are farther left. Sean Hannity is a shameless right wing propagandist as is Rush Limbaugh. Both of them quite often bend the facts beyond recognition. The Lehrer News Hour on PBS is the most objective TV news program.

                are you kidding me with those sources??? politico? huffington post???? NY times? these are so far left it is not even funny! I thought you were going to say MSNBC would be the right news channel to watch also. his source is 1000000 times better than what you suggested.

          Hmmmm.  Tea party supporter, involved in illegal interrogation of prisoners, including terrorist threats, before resigning from active duty after close scrutiny of his actions.  Endorsed by the comedienne Sarah Palin, to put further icing on the stale cake.

          Yep, sounds like your type of guy, OLY!  lol

            I think there will be a new amendment, somewhere, someplace in regard to this Issue you have brought up, and I feel it is a good one.

            You have brought out a good point. Since they are not going to listen to us anymore and they are going to make our decisions for us, why not make it mandatory.

            If you are going to run our country and make us listen to you and do as you see fit, then let's see just who you are and if you are qualified to do the job.

            Now, The Donald has opened up a heck of a can of worms. He is catching it from all sides.

            The big question is, can he do it, will he do it, or is this just a bunch of hooky- pokey

      Congressman Weiner voted against it for just the opposite reason!
      He's a hoot! He says, "I may not be much to look at, but I can hold my own."

        So we will have a coalition of extreme liberals and enraged teabaggers voting against.

        Talk about your strange bedfellows.

        C-SPAN won't be able to broadcast that orgy. Hopefully, Planned Parenthood will warn about STDs and provide condoms.

    I like Washington Post myself.
    They have left-leaning columnists and right-leaning columnists.
    Pretty fair and balanced!!!
