Yippeee a GD budget.
I have news, Bush had budgets & he doubled the debt & created this recession.
Notice how his cussing has increased in the last couple of weeks? Either drinking more or scared to death his messiah is going to lose or both. I've noticed a few of them are starting to show the strain.

Obama is black and he claimed to be God....but could not even function as a Chicago alderman....
the folks in New Jersey need two things above all else....electric power and gasoline....and Obama and FEMA can't do a damn thing about either.....
He did no such thing. And he was an alderman? Really?

You keep proving just how uninformed you are.

That fat fk knows Romney is toast.
He's angling for 2016.
He looked like he was going to have a heart attack; if he doesn't lose that weight, he won't live till age 50. It's too bad, he's young and has small children, not that bad looking.

The combination of the two perfectly describes today.

I am mocking DAwriter. Try to keep up.

I understand that in the right whiner world, it is OK to lie but not to use certain words.

Exactly. These are people who served thos country. Now they are homeless.
Being homes does NOT mean you are a drunk, drug addict, lazy, irresponsible, etc.
That is correct. I became homeless when the oil and gas industry collapsed and I didn't have a strong enough resume to survive in the industry then. But, because Reagan was president, I was able to dig my way out of that just by doing whatever job I could get paid for every day... cleaning restrooms at service stations, cleaning dumpster locations at apartment complexes, night security at construction sites, then being a carpenter, and finally I was able to get a professional degreed position again.

I just don't buy this bullshit about anyone being above anything they might have to do to survive and eat and get a place for themselves to live.
If you don't have a job, you don't have anything else to be proud of. You don't deserve any respect. Don't expect it until you start producing in the economy.

Each state would manage their own FEMA based on their own individual needs. Or something similar.
I think it's the "each state" part and "managing their own business and affairs" that stumps so many of you big government thinkers.
If you're ever going to get it, you're going to have to readjust your thinking.
Try thinking major reforms, having more money in your pocket and states governing themselves instead of an overbloated federal government.
I won't be back on here until Sunday, so put this in your favorites and refer back to it every now and then.
Maybe it will help.
Have a good weekend.
Bye Carol have a great weekend. All seeing and powerful government is their religion.

The story of a multi-million dollar plumbing company that could not survive the Obama RECOVERY. Many thanks to Wells Fargo for not being there when we needed them. They were unwilling to pick up the phone and tell us that until it was too late. But then again they only ignored all follow-up attempts for 13 months in all. Too big to do it right or even care.
Thank you to the thousands of good wishes and blessings sent our way because of our story. We will rise again because that's who we are. Our prayers and thoughts are with all those who have shared their story and struggle. May we all do whatever we can to make sure we vote if you haven't already.
Sorry for the family and employees but clearly Mr Rooter is a franchise operation with controlled pricing and many other requirements making the franchisee unable to adjust with rapidly changing times. Tough sht, other plumbing companies who could roll with the times picked
up the slack.

In the plumbing industry, "never get so big that you can't get small."

Speaking of franchises, have you seen all those green Serv-Pro trucks moving about in the wake of Sandy? Ca-ching!

You forgot who was President when this recession started.

I'm guessing the housing collapse killed your plumber.

What government are you talking about? Maybe you should read up on STRS's. Most have already put their future security in the stock market/hedge funds and have become ineligible for Social Security...wonder if Dumbya is on the dole now? Romney?
