<quoted text>Thanks for clearly that up. I thought you were trying to answer my question about showing evidence fraud was increasing. But we know you do not answer my questions.
I am pretty sure Arnold has already acknowledged fraud occurs in these programs, so I am not sure why he needed an example of what he does not dispute. If what you claim is what he actually asked.
You could have cleared up the confusion the first time I asked what the point of the article was supposed to enlighten me on. Thanks for wasting my time.
Again clueless one, how do you know if I don't answer your questions? You fail to follow basic steps of going to the origin of a post and then you only get half the story, you ask halfass questions because you don't know what you're talking about and then blame me or anyone that doesn't answer your questrion. You didn't have a fat clue what I was talking about with these posts. Most people don't randomly pick a post and just jump in, sometimes they follow the origin, which I see is a foreign concept to you. As far as wasting your time, why did you waste mine? If you want to know what you're suppose to take from a site someone posts, use your own advice "I'm not doing your research" and go back and research the posts and see what you may have missed and you won't look like a jackass.

Hey Emlu. Do you get snow up your way today?

Emlu, don't waste your time explaining to Mike why you post anything. He doesn't understand and it will always be the poster's fault that he doesn't understand the question and even though he doesn't understand, he'll certainly disagree.

Been talking a lot lately?:)

<quoted text>In 06, the economy was not in the shitter yet. So Obama was speaking to why republicans were spending so much in the good times, and not saving for the hard times.
So if the republicans had saved in the good times, Obama could have spent in the hard times to keep the economy stable and yet keep the debt low.

Bacon, you do this same old thing, no matter if it were I in the discussion or not. You consistently post sites and give no reason for posting them.

I simply asked you to explain, yet you refused for several posts.

You demonstrate your ignorance in your belief that presidents can aurhorize spending or borrowing. Congress is responsible for all expenditures through departmental budgets. It is true that the National debt increased over 100% during the presidency of Dubya Bush, but it wasn't Bush that did that. It was congress. It is true that the national debt has increased 50% during the presidency of Obama, but Obama didnt do that either . It was congress. Congress passes the laws, authorizes spending and borrowing and has to authorize raising the debt limit.

Whether or not I beleive that abortion is murder is irrelevant. I did see part of the interview with Mourdock when he was ask about the rape of a 13 year old girl. It is very evident to me where he stands. We all know that rape is an act of violence. Rape is not God's will, we were given freewill. Barrbaric as it may sound but, hanging is to good for a bastard like that. How the hell could we possilbly ask that a 13 year old child become a mother after being violated in such a way?
What could we expect a young female's outlook to be on marriage, sex and family after such a traumatic experience?
Pro I seek feedback from you most of all because you have stated that you have three daughters!

My bad Mike, I actually thought you had read the origin of why I posted the site. I'm sorry for assuming you had read why I had posted the site, but as usual you didn't and it's my fault. Does this blame game thing work well for you in the real world?

<quoted text>
So TSF, Obama had a democratic congress for the first two years of his presidency and the National Debt increased 50% in a 4 year period and under GW over eight years it increased 100%? You're the numbers guys, so let me ask, could not a democratic congress under a democratic president do any better? You can't blame the repubs, they didn't have control of Congress for the first two years, what went wrong with the dems in congress the first two years? It looks like Obama's record with congress is no better than GW's. You can explain to me, IF Obama is re-elected and congress (dem or repub--both failed) do no better, what makes GW and Obama any different? It appears to me, neither were and are good team players.

Allen, I'm butting in. I, have a daughter and I couldn't imagine her being raped at any age. Tere would be no need for a trial for the man that did it, I'd save the taxpayers money and take care of the problem myself. I don't believe a child that's a victim of rape, or incest (which is the difference?) or a woman that's an adult being the victim of rape should be able to have an abortion. We need to educate our daughters, and women in general that rape should be reported immediately and they give 7 pills from a birth control dose pack that will cause a period and take care of an unwanted pregnancy. Pray to God, the man was not HIV positive, that's insult to injury. I think the men that made the statement were idiots and that's as kind as I can be; however, making a joke about their insensitivity to rape victims is also idiotic. In my job before, I attended support groups for rape victims and the cereal box joke would not have been funny. Rape isn't funny and I think making a jokes even to point out someone's stupidity only inflicts more emotional pain to rape victims.

<quoted text>So even if the economy is bad, you see no need for spending to help keep it from collapsing? If the debt was paid down to a surplus in the good times, one could spend in the bad without debt. At least in theory.
But republicans like Bush said it is your money, so you should not have the government help save for a rainy day.
"Keeping from collapsing" did not resolve the debt issue. We are deeper in debt.

There has not been a surplus. Clinton left no surplus.

Correct. The government should not save "our" money for us. We should be responsible enough to save for ourselves. If one does not plan for the "rainy day" then one can get wet.

Your views are very black and white as is most republicans are. What I keep trying to point out is, you need to look at the situation of the day to discern the approach.

Tax cuts for the rich is not going to lower the debt. Loopholes will not likely be cut much. Spending two trillion extra for the military is not going to reduce the debt.
Your points are non committal because you straddle the fence at times and lean to the side that best suites your argument.

You are correct. I see things in black and white and move on. When you drill down to the core of any issue the underlying problem typically can be resolved with a black and white answer.

You said "Taxing the rich is not going to lower the debt".

I agree. Government doesn't have a revenue problem, they have a spending problem

I think this outsourcing of Sensata Technologies, smacks of greed...Over $500,000 in one quarters profit this year, yet still scheduled for China...Imagine a 180 employee plant, clearing over $2 million annually, but it's not enough? Those are some hungry stockholders....

Thank you bacon and I do owe apology for my previous post. It was truly in bad taste. Sometimes I have to laugh just to keep from crying. Our kids used to be able to skip down the street, now they can't skip for having to look over their shoulders. Sad.
