A history lesson seems to be in order now....
January, 2001, total public debt was 5 trillion dollars.
dot-com bust
Arab jihad starts a global war
January, 2007, Democrats take control of all the purse strings of government. Total public debt was 8.5 trillion dollars, 3.5 trillin dollars having been added since the dot-com bust and the Arab jihad declaring war on the United States. Annual deficit was 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollars.
Please tell us what has happened to the debt and deficit since the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government in January, 2007.
Did you say the Democrats increased the deficit a goddam thousand percent?
Did you say the Democrats doubled the debt, and they still don't have enough money?
So, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
List????????

You know that list of legislation the Democrats passed in the first 9 months of 2007 that created this recession???

I keep asking, you keep running.

Where did Bush get his money????

Is Boehner & the Republicans responsible now for the debt is 2011, 2012?

So unless you pay 3.8 trillion in taxes, you need not send in your federal income tax payments.
No this is the real answer that the libtards don't want to admit will need to happen. I didn't say anything about the rich not paying taxes. I said the middle class, lower to upper, are going to have to pony up to the bar. Just getting the money from the $200,000 and up crowd won't cut it. That is what he is trying to say. Friggin' libtards are SO stupid!!!!

You know, it dawned on me yesterday after suffering in the cold as the 43rd high school or military marching band struggled past, that, that ceremony of induction pretty much summmed up America in a nutshell. We fumble along til the twelfth grade or the military sucks us in and then for about 30% of us there's some form of "higher education" for several years and then after that there's 30 or 40 years of doing almost nothing. All to the tune of Yankee Doodle Dandy banged out on some enormous drum over and over until your ears bleed or you die. Omigawd I feel so used.
You're not just used but used-up. But all those guys loved it.

What really bothers you is I see you as being totally transparent. I live the life that you pretend and wish to live, except much better and in much higher circles. Besides you only have a couple more weeks to listen to me and then it's off to other places. You are on here ten hours a day every day and then off to some bar and you call that exciting??? Make me laugh, you are one pretentious lowlife and it shows daily. Yet you refer to liberals in almost every post as being looney..Hello kettle.

Whites are imitating blacks, a most unfortunate occurrence and an indication of a national decline in moral values.
If you leftwingers cared in the slightest about the black community, you would understand that the destruction of the family unit is the primary reason for lack of any progress. Families need fathers, not Obamaphones.
Typical right whiner calling unmarried mothers sluts.

I have news, better availability of contraceptives might prevent some of those pregnancies that were not planned. You know, like through planned Parenthood or through their health insurance policies - you know, the things you right whiners bitch about 24/7.

So, is it post civil rights or post civil war? If you're going to perpetuate a horseshit construct, at least get the time-line straight.

Slavery was instrumental in the development of ALL advanced civilizations, including ours - you know it and I know it. Despicable as it is, slavery freed up great minds to accomplish great things.

Gun control is like stopping drunken driving by making it harder for sober people to buy cars.
That poster was another moron, in most states the car buyer must possess a valid drivers license and proof of insurance, in my state it's illegal to sell or deliver a car to a person who is noticeably mentally impaired.

Maybe gun dealers should be as well regulated as car dealers eh?

You said exactly what I said you did.

During the debate on ending the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy was discussed, some right whiner would say you could take all the money & it wouldn't run the government so how would it help This is what you were talking about.

Right now, the economy is not strong enough to raise taxes on everyone. We need to raise revenues from sources where it will not damage the economy. Like the wealthy right now.

Just like we need to cut spending in areas that will not hurt the economy.

The best thing for our deficit problems is getting our economy back. Not drastically cutting spending. Not drastically raising taxes.

No one ever said that raising the tax rate on the wealthy was the only thing that needed to be done. You Flacktards are so stupid.

What about all those great minds who were slaves? Maybe it has held the entire world back and only after slavery was abolished did we begin to achieve our greatest accomplishments. You know they used to saw off arms/legs during the Civil War, unthinkable with today's medicines and advances in science.

Yeah and after the utter hot dam fool the Oregon Sheriff made of himself on TV you'd wonder why the others would even bother.

County Sheriffs don't enforce federal laws do they genius? They should be writing letters to the governors of their states__the ones that approve their budgets. ROFLMAO

In spite of your half-assed statement, drunk drivers kill THOUSANDS of people every year. The single most effective deterrent has been severe penalties for first time offenders. Under Obama, gun crime prosecutions have declined by 17%- not gun crimes, but prosecutions. It's as if Obama likes crooks with guns (Fast and Furious), it helps to push his agenda.

Ending drug prohibition would do more to stop gun violence than anything else the government could do and it would not only not cost no money it would significantly raise revenue if it was taxed like tobacco and alcohol.
