Obama apparently has rejected the Republican capitulation offer from yesterday.

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

The budget negotiations continue: Obama apparently has rejected the Republican capitulation offer from yesterday.

The Republican plan, which I think sucks, was simply not humiliating enough. Meanwhile, there appears to be some pushback from conservative Republicans. I am not hopeful, however. The cowards at the head of the Republican party always back down.

    The fact that the WSJ is making the bold claim that it is Obama who is turning down this reasonable offer is great.

    Our republican leadership is quit questionable but this is just handing them another chance at a win. Another way to make it look like Obama is the one who is not reasonable.

    This is one of the lefts trusted sources and if they are saying Obama is getting unreasonable then they will start to turn on him un large numbers is the republicans handle it the right way.
