What's the matter? Can't you twist the data to support your Big-Spending Republicans?
No, you can't and that's your sorry lot.
No matter how you slice it, Bush increased spending in his first term 45% and Obama increased it 8% in his first term and you want people to believe that Republicans are the GOOD guys???
Sux to be you dudn't it?
America has a SPENDING problem-on BOTH sides of the partisan fences.

Topic Reminder Service wrote:
Topic Reminder Service (TRS) is a publicly-funded non-political organization founded to update Forum Users with accurate factual reminders. This particular Topic could be - indeed has been - deemed out-of-date or "dead" since November 4th, 2008. However, persuant of common OPINION, it has remained one of the more-popular Topix to this day. At this point in time, over four years after the topic's origin and considering none of the facts will change for another four years (making for an estimated eight-year lifecycle), TRS is presenting the following reminders of FACT-
Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the first African American to hold the office. Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was president of the Harvard Law Review.
Born in Honolulu, Hawaii USA on August 4, 1961, he served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, running unsuccessfully for the United States House of Representatives in 2000.
He began his presidential campaign in 2007, and in 2008, after a close primary campaign against Hillary Rodham Clinton, he won sufficient delegates in the Democratic party primaries to receive the presidential nomination. He then defeated Republican nominee John McCain in the general election, and was inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009. Nine months later, Obama was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate.
Obama was re-elected president in November 2012, defeating Republican nominee Mitt Romney. He is the first two-term Democrat POTUS since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win two presidential elections with a majority of the popular vote.
On February 17, 2009, Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a $787,000,000,000 economic stimulus package aimed at helping the economy recover from the deepening worldwide recession, thereby continuing an economic aid policy first instituted under the preceding (Republican) President George W. Bush.
Domestic policy items include the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act AKA Obama Care, signed into law on March 23, 2010. In May 2012, he became the first sitting U.S. president to publicly support legalizing same-sex marriage. Sixteen years earlier, in 1996 as a candidate for the Illinois state senate, Obama had said that he was in favor of same.
Notable foreign policy items include the draw-down of troops in Afghanistan and the end of military operations in Iraq as of August 31, 2010. On March 16, 2011, he authorized the U.S. Military to engage in air strikes against Libya's governmental air defense capabilities in order to protect civilians and enforce a no-fly zone. On May 1, 2011, Obama authorized a "surgical raid" by United States Navy SEALs in Abbottabad, Pakistan, resulting in the death of international terrorist and al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and the seizure of papers, computer drives and disks from bin Laden's compound.

Why are you attacking people that aren't even on to defend themselves, sticking your nose in where it has no business... especially taking low level pops at those that have said nothing to you?

Children have survived MANY years, healthy, drinking milk.

And besides, What doesn't cause "cancer" these days.
For example-Nothing worse than a bunch of nasty looking vienna "sausages" made of left overs--with discolored bands running all through 'em. Talk about disgustingly GROSS and with out ANY intrinsic worth...now that's nasty beyond nasty.

Check your facts.

Very few adults drink any milk except a little with cereal. I stopped drinking milk as soon as I had the courage to tell my parents that I hated it.

There are better ways to get calcium.

Afghanistan provided sanctuary for Al Qaeda to launch the 9/11 attacks on the US. Our response against Afghanistan was clearly justified.

Ban Subways?

NEW YORK (AP)- For New York City, it wasn't an unusual sight: a possibly mentally ill woman pacing and mumbling to herself on an elevated subway station platform.

The woman eventually took a seat on a bench Thursday night, witnesses later said. Then, without any warning or provocation, she sprang up and used both hands to shove a man into the path of an oncoming train.

As police sought on Friday to locate the unidentified woman, Mayor Michael Bloomberg urged residents to keep the second fatal subway shove in the city this month in perspective. The news of the horrific death of 46-year-old Sunando Sen, who was from India and lived in Queens, came as the mayor touted drops in the city's annual homicide and shooting totals.

"It's a very tragic case, but what we want to focus on today is the overall safety in New York," Bloomberg told reporters following a police academy graduation.

Hmm, and here I thought the entire Republican Premise was based upon Public Funding For Everything from food to charity pregnant ladies' unwanted-child support to No Government Support For Anything? Have I misunderstood American Politics this entire time?

Upon a brief moment's reflectiom, I think not. Just the typical mindless blathering of an ignorant punter...
