Right. That's what I thought she'd said, but she's going to retire next year...unless she's going to join the ranks of all these other uber wealthy Grumpy Old Pricks on here who retired at forty-five on the massive trust fund from their stellar investments, is that even possible. Surely she doesn't plan on living on the "giverment dole" with SSI disability?

You guys are haughtier than John Kerry these days. I guess you guys must have been lividly vengeful for....(having won election 4 years ago and now??
Finally, seriously, have a laugh and gloat at it now, but you also KNOW that an action creates a reaction. There are MANY ways to hit back, all of them legal..
And doing so seems to be the sole and total goal of the 'Gals Orterbe Probed' party.

Carry on - see how relevant you are in 4 more years.

Just guessing...but I'm usually a good guesser. Can usually get the final question on jeapordy right - sometimes even when the contestants don't.

Was that a good guess?

<quoted text>Americans don't care about any of it.
In the course of his first term, Obama increased the federal debt by just shy of $6 trillion and, in return, grew the economy by $905 billion.
So, as Lance Roberts at Street Talk Live pointed out, in order to generate every $1 of economic growth the United States had to borrow about $5.60.
There's no one out there on the planet – whether it's "the rich" or the Chinese – who can afford to carry on bankrolling that rate of return.
According to one CBO analysis, US government spending is sustainable as long as the rest of the world is prepared to sink 19 percent of its GDP into U.S. Treasury debt.
We already know the answer to that: In order to avoid the public humiliation of a failed bond auction, the U.S. Treasury sells 70 percent of the debt it issues to the Federal Reserve – which is to say the left hand of the U.S. government is borrowing money from the right hand of the U.S. government.
It's government as a Nigerian email scam, with Ben Bernanke playing the role of the dictator's widow with $4 trillion under her bed that she's willing to wire to Timmy Geithner as soon as he sends her his bank account details.
If that's all a bit too technical, here's the gist: There's nothing holding the joint up.
So, Washington cannot be saved from itself. For the moment, tend to your state, and county, town and school district, and demonstrate the virtues of responsible self-government at the local level.
Americans as a whole have joined the rest of the Western world in voting themselves a lifestyle they are not willing to earn. The longer any course correction is postponed the more convulsive it will be. Alas, on Tuesday, the electorate opted to defer it for another four years. I doubt they'll get that long.
But a Congressman talking about rape, a binder and Obama feeling your pain was what mattered most to voters.
Here! Here!

We may see the crash before the end of the year. A snowball that will envelope everything it touches. The world economy is so fragile right now it wouldn't take much.

Another dummy that thinks spending resets to zero. We were already over budget before Obama took office. Still paying for a couple of unfunded wars. It never ceases to amaze me how ignorant you rightwingers are.

No, no Lily. I just said "I" would like to do that.

There you go again...accusing the entire party of something they'd never intend to do.

We're counting on a lot of women realizing how wrong they were in 2016.

Yes that and they know we aren't likely to stop them from doing what ever they want. A weak America makes the world that much more dangerous.

Yougest daughter went to Jamestown/Williamsburg on a field trip today. What a shame the America she will up in. Back in an hour or so.
