If this doesn't prove how confused half of the population is, nothing will.
Latest NBC/WSJ poll: 32% believe the country is headed in the right direction down 9 points since the election.
53% of Americans want the sequester cuts or even more cuts suggesting the public’s appetite for reducing spending.
And here’s the kicker.
Yet 29% agree “with most” of what Republicans in Congress have proposed versus 45% for Obama and 40% for congressional Democrats.
They can't have it both ways. The 51% can't want more cuts and still agree with Obama and Democrats.
Obama and Democrats have been telling the 51% that spending is not the problem.
Is it any wonder we're going in circles chasing our tails?
still clueless no matter what the name.

It is a standard talking point of Republicans and deficit hawks of all political stripes that federal spending is out of control; that major surgery is needed, especially on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare, to get the budget on a sustainable course.

In fact, our long-term deficit situation is not nearly as severe as even many budget experts believe. The problem is that they are looking at recent history and near-term projections that are overly impacted by one-time factors related to the economic crisis and massive Republican tax cuts that lowered revenues far below normal.

Taking a longer-term view, such as that in a recent Treasury Department report, shows that our longer-term fiscal problem is in fact quite manageable.

Frustrated that House Republicans are seen in surveys as the main obstacle to resolving the stalemate over sequester, Speaker John Boehner used some unusually blunt language Tuesday morning to lay the problem at the Senate door.

“We have moved the bill in the House twice,” he said Tuesday morning as President Obama continued his public relations blitz with a visit to a military installation in Newport News, Va.“We should not have to move a third bill before the Senate gets off their asses and begins to do something.”

The beleaguered House speaker could use a refresher course in constitutional prerogatives. Passing two bills in the last Congress doesn’t count; each Congress has to start anew. And his insistence that the Senate go first is an admission that the House is incapable of finding a solution to the fiscal impasse.

“By turning over his prestige, power, and initiative to the other body, saying,‘Let the other Republicans take the pain,’ he is surrendering the constitutional power given to the House,” says Samuel Popkin, a political scientist at the University of California at San Diego.“He is admitting failure, defeat.”

You conservatives are fond of touting capitalism in its pure laissez-faire form.
As I recall, there was a very dark side to it. For example 12-hour a day, six-days-a-week child labor for pennies an hour. Employers had no responsibility for unsafe conditions in the workplace. If a worker lost a hand to an electric saw, he had no recourse. And was typically fired and replaced.
Drugs were unregulated. There were no health standards for canned goods, meat and poultry.
These issues were not addressed until enough progressive-minded politicians were elected to office and passed laws ending such conditions.
When you take from those who work and give to those who wouldn't, the democracy," or in our case the republic, "ceases to exist."
To a communist-minded diehard believer, I’d like to ask just when you think the Cuban and North Korean states are going to flower into social-anarchist models of economic and social equality. Not only is it a sick joke to suppose that such governments will ever evolve into even this shortsighted morass of inanity, but that anarchism itself will ever manifest according to such a model. Since free or freed markets are the only ones consistent with the absence of political government, it follows that socialism , at least as a universally preferred default system , would and could never endure on any large, lasting scale, absent an oppressive government bootheel to keep it hobbling along by armed force. Such is the case now. And so, we can fully expect, will it ever be in the future. Human nature, and human desire, operates along quite different lines.It is more than instructive to take note of even a percentage of what is contained in Marx’s infamous 1848 Manifesto of the Communist Party: Abolition of all private land ownership, and rights of inheritance. Government monopolization of all transportation, communications, and educational systems. Forced redistribution of population (forced assignment of place of residency). A government-monopolized central bank. A heavy graduated tax on earnings. As to this last, Marx was quoted as saying that such a tax was necessary “to crush the middle class under the guise of a need to finance the government.” In other words, Marx was in no way above blatant deception in order to garner widespread support for a tax which in truth was designed not simply to prevent financial upward mobility among the masses, but to prop up a fiat currency creation scheme with which to ensnare and enslave the world.
