Just when I think you can't get any more stupid.
The programs you're wailing about equal 5% of the military budget.
Social Security has nothing to do with the budget deficit, you ignoramous.
Really, stay stupid. It's why your Party is headed for the trash heap.
70% of Americans support raising the marginal income tax rate 3%, and raising capital gains rate 5%.
Since you're so obsessed with plans, what's Bonehead's plan, anyway?
We also support CAPPING, CURBING and BUDGETING the overburdened, over-funded entitleMENTAL programs of fweerding handouts for contributing NOTHING!!!!

Clinton's Debacle in Bosnia
by Marshall Freeman Harris

In December 1995 the Clinton Administration ended the fighting in Bosnia- Herzegovina. Proud of what was perceived as one of his few foreign policy successes, President Clinton announced that, under the US-brokered Dayton Peace Accords,'refugees will be allowed to return to their homes'. He continued:'People will be able to move freely throughout Bosnia, and the human rights of every Bosnian citizen will be monitored by an independent commission and an internationally trained civilian police force. Those individuals charged with war crimes will be excluded from political life.' None of these things have happened. As a result, Bosnia is being partitioned into three ethnically pure mini-states.

The non-implementation of the civilian side of the Accords leaves hundreds of thousands of Bosnia's 2.2. million displaced persons aggrieved. In addition, three major strategic regions of the country are left indecisively addressed or unresolved: Gorazde is left militarily indefensible, Sarajevo militarily exposed, and Brcko subject to a future arbitration agreement. The refusal of US and other foreign troops in the NATO-led International Implementation Force (IFOR) to facilitate the Accords' key civilian aspects - including the return of refugees, the apprehension of war criminals and the conduct of free and fair elections - exponentially increases the risk that one of these potential flash points will ignite.

The CEO Bankruptcy Bonus
Firms Sidestep Rule Limiting Rewards for Executives
.....in the past few years, some corporations have found perfectly legal ways to escape federal strictures on bonus pay during bankruptcy cases.
Companies now craft "incentive" plans—rewards that put their compensation programs outside the 2005 law's purview. These plans pay executives if they hit certain performance targets, including exiting bankruptcy protection quickly.
The Justice Department often objects to these plans, as do labor unions angered by the juxtaposition of bonuses for executives with cuts to rank-and-file jobs and benefits.

Just to be clear, the Medicare drug benefit was a pure giveaway with a gross cost greater than either the House or Senate health reform bills how being considered. Together the new bills would cost roughly $900 billion over the next 10 years, while Medicare Part D will cost $1 trillion.

Moreover, there is a critical distinction--the drug benefit had no dedicated financing, no offsets and no revenue-raisers; 100% of the cost simply added to the federal budget deficit, whereas the health reform measures now being debated will be paid for with a combination of spending cuts and tax increases, adding nothing to the deficit over the next 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Recall the situation in 2003. The Bush administration was already projecting the largest deficit in American history--$475 billion in fiscal year 2004, according to the July 2003 mid-session budget review. But a big election was coming up that Bush and his party were desperately fearful of losing. So they decided to win it by buying the votes of America's seniors by giving them an expensive new program to pay for their prescription drugs.

Republicans, welcome to the reality-based community

Defeat has shattered the US right's impenetrable front on tax and healthcare. The party's pragmatists are finding their voice

"If you beat your head against the wall," the Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci once wrote, "it is your head that breaks, not the wall."

On election night Morris's head exploded, leaving shards of baseless braggadocio scattered across cyberspace. Reality will do that, sooner or later. For Republicans it has been later. For some time now they have been bingeing on everything from climate change denial to creationism. But in the last four years they outdid themselves with birtherism and death panels, insisting Obama was a Kenyan imposter imposing European values. Believing they were entitled to their own facts, they started to believe their own spin. Morris was merely the most bullish illustration of a broader derangement. The rot went all the way to the top. On election night Romney had $25,000-worth of fireworks all ready to launch on the Boston Harbor and a transition team of 200 waiting in the wings.

Finally it appears defeat has sobered some of them up, forcing a rift between those willing to engage with the world as it is and others who prefer dystopian visions, woven from whole cloth. Over the past few years Republicans presented a united, impenetrable front guided by the latter. Now the party's pragmatists, who laid low for fear of Tea Party retribution, seem to be slowly finding their voice.

Try again.
Again these terms are negotiated at the time of hire for CEO's and the like. Want the same perks? Get an education and earn it. Or you can continue to man the fryer at McDonalds. Your choice

Would this be like the way that Obama bought the votes of the losers in this country by offering more government handouts?
