In the news today (10/12/13)

Five days until we reach the debt ceiling. The House R's are now racing to come up with a solution before the Senate R's and moderate D's swoop in an steal their so-called "thunder". Vegas odds have the Senate leading us out of this mess with a token win for the R's, a debt ceiling increase to take us past the 1st of the year, changes to the sequester to allow Gov't agencies more flexibility, a repeal of the medical device tax and some changes to so-called entitlement programs.

Michelle Bachmann believes President Obama is leading us towards the end of days. His Presidency is apparently the biblical sign of the apocalypse.

Senator Cruz tried to argue for repeal of the Affordable Care Act to the President at the White House. That went over like a fart in church.

The St. Louis Cardinals took a 1-0 lead in the best of 7 NLCS with a 3-2 win in 13 innings on Carlos Beltran's RBI single. Beltran drove in all three runs for the Cards. Game 2 is this afternoon. Game 1 of the ALCS between the Tigers and Red Sox is tonight.

For college football fans, OU at Texas, Georgia at Mizzu, Florida at LSU, Oregon at Washington. Happy Saturday!
