<quoted text>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.
Of course spending doesn't reset to zero, but.....

Tarp came and went and we still have trillion dollar deficits

The stimulus came and went and we still have trillion dollar deficits

The iraq war came and went and we still have trillion dollar deficits

Afghanistan winding down and we still have trillion dollar deficits

Something's got to give.

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?
You've guessed wrong on the last two Presidential elections__Carol, you can't even name our enemies babe, or haven't been able to so far. And given four years to bone up, you qualify as a total failure.

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.
Why?
Wrong about what? Not wanting to be raped? or Raped by the state and charged $500 for it? About not wanting to bear the rapists baby?
About wanting control over their own bodies and lives?

Fat chance sista. Ain't happenin.

Of course, by signing my name to a petition, the last thing I want to have to worry about is Obama's civil army knocking at my door.
"The Social Security Administration confirms that it is purchasing 174 thousand rounds of hollow point bullets to be delivered to 41 locations in major cities across the U.S. No one has yet said what the purpose of these purchases is, though we are led to believe that they will be used only in an emergency to counteract and control civil unrest. Those against whom the hollow point bullets are to be used those causing the civil unrest must be American citizens; since the SSA has never been used overseas to help foreign countries maintain control of their citizens."

And you are an old bag of the version of the girl on the TV commercial that believes everything she reads on the internet. Only in your case, you believe everything the government and your liberal propoganda outlets like Media Matters shoves down your stupid throat. Who's stupid?

<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.
"Hans"
APPLAUSE!!!!
Well said.

Never in the Biblical sense, namE, even with all the 24/7 hypocritical cross "barin" Carol does. Plus, Homer is a straight-arrow. He would never disrespect Mrs. Homer that way--he was never in the military and you losers are confusing him with generals.

I voted for a man that was not a treasonous lying bastard that hates America. Unlike you who did.
