A recent hearing by a House subcommittee on Feb. 7 revealed the govt WASTED $115 BILLION, down from $121 BILLION in 2010!

http://fcw.com/articles/2012/02/07/federal-im...

And the Commucrat's Roadshow Ruler is still on the campaign trail fear mongering about the looming sequester that HE suggested, a sequester that only cuts $85B! The sequester actually cuts the govt to levels just above those in 2009, and please someone correct me if I'm wrong, but planes were STILL flying, firemen were STILL fighting fires, and the elderly were STILL receiving Medicare in 2009!

The Democrats will know say they saved the American taxpayers $6 billion just because they spent less than they thought they might.

"Firemen still fighting fires"?

Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution enumerates powers granted to the federal government and nowhere does it list the power to “bail out the states who come up short in paying for firefighters, police and teachers.”

Furthermore, when the federal government “give” lesser governments (state & local) money to pay for these responsibilities, they often attach conditions to funding that may be unconstitutional. Typical political bullshit.

I once read Henry ford said that if you believe government will take of you, ask the native Americans if that is true...

Think there is some wisdom in there somewhere...

Hundreds of thousands, tens of thousands, finally, thousands are going to do without in three days. How can anyone fix the problem if on a road show?

Exactly! Instead traveling one mile down the street to meet with the elected officials involved, the Roadshow Ruler is 150 miles away on the fear mongering campaign trail! This President and his party is a joke! No leadership skills at all!

I think you are doing exactly what you have accused me of; refusing to accept something because of preconceived notions.
Implying that my old friend was a jerk is the first thing on this forum that has ruffeled my feathers. He was a real hero with stunning combat accomplishments as a pilot and the medals to prove it, but never got the news coverage. Coincidentally,he was not rich then, nor did he have well a well connected family. Also, there was , again coincidentally, no crew with movie cameras waiting to pick him up when his Avenger went down.If he said something, you could believe it and I do believe him . He was there and in the air.

Finally, in Raleigh, republikans have done something useful. They have voted on a back to basics law that NC schools require students to memorize the multiplication tables and be proficient in cursive writing. They probably left out memorizing the goesintas because they never heard of them.

I like to listen to Rush (Mr Oxycodone) because he is interestingly extreme right wing nuts. However, the left didn't win. The right snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by being so math challenged that they didn't understand what 51% of the vote means.
Attacking women, blacks, immigrants, the poor, the unemployed, veterans, the disabled, the elderly, anyone who didn't chant the lockstep republikan mantras and even girl scouts was not really a formula for winning 51% of the vote. They are still doing it and will continue to lose again and again until they stop attacking a majority of the electorate.. As Clinton says, "--its arithmetic"

You started this"commucrat"crap with your"republikan"crap .When you hit someone in the face, they generally hit you back.Here's some advice for you, free of charge.If you don't want your"friends"subject ed to criticism, leave them off of Topix.You've seen what happens to my friend on Topix.Your nameless"friend" (how do I even know he's not someone you made up)? Is absolutely unknown to me.Expect your"friend"to experience criticism, with his unfounded comments.That's right, he's gone, so he can't be further questioned.That's convenient.

The entire episode is a dog and pony show for the electorate. There is no doubt (among the sane) that cuts have to be made. There is no doubt (amoung the sane) that taxes will have to increase. This is only the first step and the brahooha allows both parties to disclaim responsibility for the discomfort it will cause.

TSF I recall how much Stowe hated you.At first,I thought Stowe wasn't a bad type.Then, in response to a girl, who was a friend of mine, dying without access to medical care, he said, to paraphrase, that she should have become a doctor, and treated herself.Really....TSF you're great with statistics.All i'm asking of you, is to check your stats, as Clemens said"There are lies, damn lies, and statistics."

Republikans are crap, republicans are the reasonable, rational faction. Here is another gem of knowledge from my friend-- "Texas is a great place to be from."

LOL! You die-hard morons don't get it. Obama won two terms and both times with over 50% of the vote. Only 3 previous American Presidents have ever done so. What part of 'YOU LOST BIG TIME!' do you not understand? The man has created a history and legacy you will never be able to erase. Oh, BTW? Thanks for the term 'Obamacare'. Now nobody will ever be able to forget exactly who it was who fixed what you idiots did to us in our health care system. Thanks, guys!'Obamacare' is damn catchy!

The will of the people is WAY clear. We, the people, choose Obama's way, not yours. Now, get on the bus, get off the bus or get the F*** out of the way. Figuratively running all over you is a gift that keeps on giving...
See you in '14. Get ready. We are hardly done ridding the land of vermin like you traitors.

You act as if the well off are villains robbing from the poor. Not their fault if they can manage money, convince people to invest and or market a product that turns a profit.

Your teams tax the wealthy more because they have it is robbery. Which, you're comfortable with that, so your posture on it doesn't surprise me.
