<quoted text> No it did not. This is where your brainwashing kicks in. What it means is the government is not taking $30K more of your money. It does not belong to the government in the first place so the government cannot give it to you. To imply that the government does in fact own everything is a very dangerous road to travel.
You see the word 'give' is where you go wrong.
Was or was not your bank account larger? Answer Yes

Why was it larger - tax cuts

Play your semantics games all you want.

<quoted text> Yes moran but those four are not acts of war. They are for the most part accidents and not intentional acts of destruction like attacking a US warship with an explosive laden boat.
Sorry, you're not going to justify 6 trillion(and still counting) in spending.

The rest is just twisted logic, you act like Obama created welfare.
Bush put us in this bind with his rediculous spending, unfunded tax cuts, unfunded wars and as Homer has noted on several occasions the spending does not reset to zero when a new guy takes office.
Bush wasn't the only culprit in getting us in this mess. As long as politicians on both sides are indebted up to their armpits to special interests, you can count on mismanagement and corruption being SOP.

Happily, places like The American Conservative and Front Porch Republic are acting a hatcheries and incubators for a sane conservatism. Thatís a healthy thing. What will be far healthier still will be a Christian and Catholic laity in this country that is decoupled altogether from commitments to the Loony Right or the Looney Left, a Church that weighs reality in light of the Faith, not the Faith in light of ideological commitments to Left or Right.

sorry FOXbots. your time is over.
Part of the problem is the looney right implement God as a tool of their politics.

As with any tool, they use and discard him as their "needs" arise.

<quoted text>Carol, always late for the party. We are discussing Bush and his failed presidency, Flack noted that compassionate conservative(Bush referred to himself as one)= progressive but freely admitted he voted for him twice. To which Tenzing duly noted that Flack has a history of voting for progressives.
Flack then went on to say that 9/11 and muslim terrorist attacks all over the world cost us 6 trillion dollars.
To which Tenzing Rebutted - "Where "all over the world" were they killing Americans?
Your other implication, that 9/11 cost $6 trillion is just absurd."
I believe that should bring you up to speed.
I and others were also discussing music, guitars, basses, sound rooms and the like.

Why would Obama make a point of telling the American public he would be sitting down with Romney in the weeks ahead right after he won the election?
And then met with him the first time just three weeks after the election?
There's no other reason a newly elected president would be so open-armed to a former opponent or his press secretaray underscoring Obama's interest in what Romney had to say.
lol! Why do you people insist others do things your way?

It's like the teleprompter comedy you people provided the first time. Things you don't know how to use you criticize and ridicule because you don't understand how it works.

Maybe we should declare war on autos, animals, stairs and doctors.
In the US in 2001 you stood a three times greater chance of death by drowning than by act of terror. Don't forget swimming pools.

<quoted text>Yeah, but just think debt free by 2013. So you're now okay with all the Bush spending. You're a train wreck Flack.
"Reckless spending" is only reckless spending when Dems do it, when Republicans do it its called "fiscal conservatism" hence all the confusion over just what "conservatism" means today.

No Iraq war.

No debt enhancing tax cuts

Maybe no 9-11 (Gore wouldn't have throw the Hart Rudman report in the trash)

No recession.

I think I just whacked about 10 trillion off the debt.

Elections do matter &the Bush election was a turning point.

Each & every one of you Bush voters helped cause the mess we are in.

No less than Obama. If Johnson had even a sliver of a chance he would have had my vote. 2016 may be his year if the idiots that were elected this time get the status quo (a great band). A third party might just have a chance for once.

You have no way of knowing that so you conjecture is pure bullshit. I could just as easily say it would be much worse. Which would be bullshit as well. Coulda, woulda, shoulda is for children.

You are being disingenuous.
