A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He lowered altitude and spotted a woman in a boat below. He shouted to her, excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am.
The woman consulted her portable GPS and replied you're in a hot air balloon approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are 31 degrees, 14.9 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes, west longitude.
He rolled his eyes and said you must be a Democrat.
I am replied the woman, How did you know?
Well answered the balloonist, everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information , and I'm still lost. Frankly you've not been much help to me.
The woman smiled and said you must be a Republican. I am replied the balloonist, But how did you know?
Well said the woman, you don't know where you are or where you're going, You've risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air, you've made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and now you expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow now, it's my fault.

Screw that flake!
The by 2015 desperate Repubs will most likely go with Jeb and another (R) governor, perhaps Christie and get their azzes stomped again by the party that looks forward rather than to the past.
We must be thankful this Thanksgiving week that Allen West finally gave up.

That's a start. I like Buffet's idea even better.

Pass an amendment to the Constitution which states: Anytime there is no budget, or a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.


I think this is a great idea too:

Congressional Reform Act of 2012

1. No Tenure / No Pension.

A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they're out of office.

2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social
Security.

All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the
Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into
the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the
American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all
Americans do.

4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.
Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

5. Congress loses their current health care system and
participates in the same health care system as the American people.

6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the
American people.

7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void
effective 12/1/12. The American people did not make this
contract with Congressmen/women.

Congress made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in
Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers
envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their
term(s), then go home and back to work.

Why is it you libs think that person A is entitled to another persons labor for the simple fact a person A exist without any contrubution of their own?
They will not tell you because THEY DO NOT KNOW!!!

Is it "FAIR" that 47% pay NOTHING?

Just exactly how much IS fair?

10%....100%?

Debate will continue untill you hand over every last independently earned DIME to the "gub-mint"!

Then...

When they strip the clothes from your corpse to sell to poor people in Africa, you will have finally "paid your fair share"!
