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
TOOL, lets continue to send jobs overseas and buy the products back on credit. America is a nation of unemployed shoppers. China owns us.

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.

Emlu, could'nt help but think of you as I pulled out Grandma's old oil lamp:) I am just south of Asheville, winds have been 60-65 mph. Went to the grocery store, the wind had picked up the buggy corrals and tossed them like tumble weeds. About 1500 here without power. Hope all of you are safe from harms way. My prayers go out to all in this storms path. This one is likely to make history!

<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.
So if Bush would've spent the money on the debt during the "good times", it would've allowed Obama to spend the money on other things. News flash, the United States has continuously held a public debt since the US Constitution legally went into effect on March 4, 1789. That being said, although the govt has a debt problem, more importantly, THE GOVT HAS A SPENDING PROBLEM!
So under your philosophy, when you pay out (debt) more than you take in (income), it's ok to still spend money that you don't have on frivolous things and eventually you'll pay off your debt? You can call it what you want, I call it bullshit!

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.
<quoted text>
The buck stops at the White House! The President has the power to sign a bill into law or to veto.
Of Bush's eight years in office, the majority of his spending, minus the wars, were in the last two years of his second term....when the democrats controlled congress. Yes, he could've vetoed but he didn't. Why, who knows.
Why is it with you libs, when a Republican is in power, it's their fault but when a democrat is in power, it's congresses fault?

How many stockholders are there of Sensata Technologies stock? Again, who are you to determine how much is to much for these stockholders? If you were a stockholder and this stock was part of your 401 portfolio, wouldn't you want as much profit as possible? Like Mitt pointed out to Obama in one of the debates, we all have stock in a company in China whether you know it or not.

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?
Bacon, now you know Mike requires us to provide a link in order to prove our facts. Then you must tell him what the link says. Then you must tell him what to look for in the link and how it relates to your point. Then, and only then, is when he MIGHT read your post and link. If you don't follow these three easy steps then your post is invalid!

I had to run up to Hendersonville this morning on buisness. I will agree, the wind on Saluda and the Green River Gorge was no joke! All I could do to keep the ole F-350 dually on the road!

<quoted text>Did that happen in Massachusetts? Nope, so why do you think it will happen now?
If you wish to see the results of Obama care, just look at the results of Romney care in Massachusetts.
Clearly you do not know how to look at history and learn from it. Common for republicans.
Make sure you are clear Mike. The house and senate of Mass was all democrat with Romney being the only repub. Romney veto'd quite a bit from the left with them only to override his veto.

That is how well it is working in Doucheachusetts.

<quoted text>There is no nation state that will surrender in the war on terror.
But in the case of Iraq, it is not so much about terrorism, but insurgents. Not exactly the same.
The failed strategy of attack Bush had in Iraq, created an insurgency right off the bat and thus it flourished to numbers that could not be eradicated.
Bush was told by some high level advisers to send more troops at first. He ignored the advisers. As you would say, Bush was in charge.
And as with any dynamic situation, strategy and tactics change to meet the needs. You do know we won the Iraq war, right?

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!
I agree with Bacon, there would be one less scumbag allowed to breath on the taxpayer's dime! As far as my opinion on abortion, that's another topic completely.
