During the negotiations, it’s really best to not be in your submissive headspace.  You are a strong person with needs, wants, desires and limits.  It’s called negotiating for a reason.  Hold your ground with your limits and negotiate the rest.  Divide and rate things into want vs needs and limits.  
My limits list is rated, color coded and sectioned into categories.
I rate hard limits, soft limits (things I really would prefer not to do often but would do for him if it’s a strong want & he keeps in mind my feelings and likely doesn’t ask it at all or often of me)  Then it’s rated  1-4.
1 is a need/must have and 4 is don’t care for it all that much but it’s not a soft or hard limit.  My list has notes all over it as well, with thoughts and qualifications.  
Daddy and I revisit it about every 4-6 months I’d guess.  He has a list also.  That’s why it’s called a negotiation.

Shutting down the government is just like 9/11

wilwheaton:

With House Republicans all but declaring that they will shut down the government—a move opposed by 80% of all Americans—they’ve now taken to comparing their move to the heroes of 9/11. Seriously.

“The whole room: ‘Let’s vote!’” Congressman John Culberson of Texas recalled. “I said, like 9/11, ‘let’s roll!’”

Yes, the 40 dead, who kept a hijacked airliner from crashing into God know’s what in our nation’s capitol, is just like House Republicans appeasing the extremists of their party.

What a bunch of fucking scumbags.

As their political fortunes have faded in recent years, the Republican rightwing has become a dangerous mixture of excessive paranoia, virulent nationalism, religious fanaticism, simplistic anti-intellectualism, and irrational bigotry. Some fair-minded observers might even refer to this explosive mixture as anti-Americanism.
