Senate Democrats have not proposed a budget since April 2009.
They came up with one this month which is clearly economically unfeasible.
Homer was way out in left field blaming Republicans for not coming up with any solutions when his party has had the past four years to do the same and rejected every budget proposed by House Republicans since January 2011.
You, too, are dead wrong if you think otherwise.
My response was to your post 872566__once again you're changing the subject. No more troll games.

Talk is cheap. So is typing arguments in posts unless you have a leg to stand on.
Show me the proof of a Senate budget since April 2009.
Then show me the "spending cuts" proposed by this president which didn't involve even more spending.
I'll be waiting.
Why bother?

Ah! Repulsive/attractive, it's just the two sides of the same coin. In any event you're white, honey, I'm sorry to be the one to tell you. Hey! Did you know cowboy hats came from Sicily? Yup. Fuckin' dagos were primed to invade this place, huh, Senora?
I'm just kiddin' with you, sweetie.

I hate to break this stuff down for you but it doesn't matter if YOU watch CSI, and I certainly don't. What matters is that folks reading the post grasp a sense of the ironic thinking involved between you claiming one set of public images were Vile, while, at the same time, they know too that a 5 year old child can walk over to the TV set in his suburban Georgia home - or even yours - and flick on a TV show which displays rotting and dismembered humans in various stages of deshabille. In other words, honey, I'm not writing to YOU at all. You don't even matter, I could as easily have made you up! Get it?

One set of fantastic images - see the bible - is no more or less VILE than another except by the meaning you mind gives it. Your mind sees the images I create as VILE, but I see them as funny, topical, anything but obscene. You are able to compartmentalize the word "VILE" so it can apply to one thing of your choice at a time, whereas the word, "VILE," to me has to include all human endeavour, which is, indeed, mostly VILE. At some level I just know you can get this if you concentrate...

The governor rushed to his wife’s defense on Monday, reiterating the first lady’s point that her charity was never meant to provide immediate relief, the Associated Press reported.

But Gov. Christie’s demand for patience stood in stark contrast to his outrage just a couple of months ago, when he felt New Jersey wasn’t getting the relief it needed. In January, he infamously called Congress "disgraceful" over lawmakers' initial failure to pass legislation for Hurricane Sandy relief.

"This used to be something that was not political,” Christie said at the time, when the House delayed bringing a Sandy aid bill to the floor.“Disaster relief used to be something that you didn't play games with."

Though the Christies insist the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund is following standard protocol, some victims desperate for help aren’t satisfied with their approach.

"That's absolutely 100 percent unacceptable, because we want help yesterday," Gigi Liaguno-Dorr, a restaurant owner whose business was devastated by Sandy, told the Asbury Park Press. "She's the governor's wife. If anybody can push it through, she can. Let's move it."

You Repubs are so funny. You still don't get it therefore you will lose another election. The ONLY candidate that could win a national election for the GOP is Chris Christie. But you Repubs won't allow that to happen because he is not full of hate and might actually work with the other side to get things done.
P.S. Yes, Why don't you Repubs run another Bush for President !! Great idea.

Wow, if you look up the definition of "misconstrues", you're picture would be beside it.
Obama's "spending cuts" were rejected unanimously by Senate Democrats because he proposed even more spending.
Look, Carol., you said spending cuts. There were spending cuts on the table by Obama in many instances.

Carol received notice that here trash collection is going from $65 every three moths to $90 every three months.

Carol shopped round & contracted a new collector that will charge $70.00 every three months.

Did Carol cut her future spending?

When we talk budgets & looking ten years out, it is all future spending.

Republicans only talk of cutting future spending. Ryan's budget cut only future spending.

So, Carol, unless you run screaming down the street how Republicans have not put spending cuts on the table, STFU.

Reducing future spending goes toward balancing the budget because as the economy grows, so do revenues.

The quickest way to reduce the deficit is to grow the economy. If a stimulus effort for infrastructure work would help grow the economy, then it is worth the spending. Our infrastructure is in dire need.

So if we cut spending, increase revenues& reinvest a small potion of that into growing our economy, then it will help on all levels.

Boehner rejected 4 trillion in deficit cuts that Obama proposed.

Which part of 'no solutions by Senate Democrats for the last three years' did you not understand?
The Democrats only want to tax and spend. Any "viable solutions" other than that is rejected.
Is that your idea of viable solutions and NOT reforms, restructuring and cutting back on federal spending?
I don't give a fck about the Democrats, we were talking about how the Republicans are just wasting time and not presenting any viable solutions, please try and focus, I am begging you.

complaining about looking the fool...

Rove Says Media Should Stop Calling Elections Prematurely

Karl Rove on Tuesday suggested that American media could learn something from the papal conclave about not calling elections prematurely — a point the Republican strategist argued futilely during an infamous on-air Election Night meltdown.

Appearing on Fox News, Rove invoked references to domestic politics to speak jokingly about the process of selecting the next pope.

"Thank God we don't have exit polls or early returns," Rove cracked. "They do it the right way. They get to the final vote and the decision and then they let the smoke get it."

Continuing the riff, Rove suggested that political journalists in the United States could take a cue from that process.

"Maybe there's a message there for American media," Rove said. "Maybe we better wait, rather than try to call it, let the election go to its final conclusion and let the results speak for themselves."

The joke harkened back to Election Night, when Rove challenged the decision by networks to call Ohio, and the election, for President Barack Obama at a relatively early hour in the evening. Contributing to Fox's election coverage, Rove contended that the conservative cable news network had jumped the gun by putting the Buckeye State in Obama's column.
