Typing "next" has become rather a tic for you, hasn't it.
Must be a habit from yesteryear when, as a "sheep," you pulled that train from dusk to dawn -- so well, in fact, you got to "keep the job," and now are the proud owner of a home-built pizza oven.
'Scuse me, punkin, but just because you are a textbook example of multiple personality disorder, and schizo-affective episodes rule your daily life, that doesn't mean your lack of mental hygiene is indicated in me.

Maybe if you pick a personality and stick with it, your inner vision will clear.

What the hell - it's worth a shot...

assertions?
Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.), chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, is concerned about the draconian cuts of Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-Wisc.) proposed budget.
“It cuts too much spending, frankly, from the discretionary side of the budget," Rogers said during an interview with a local Kentucky station on Thursday, first flagged by ThinkProgress.
Rogers, who has served in Congress for over three decades, represents the second-poorest district in the country. As chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, he oversees the funding of federal agencies and programs.
"Most people don’t realize that we only appropriate one-third of federal spending … and we’ve cut that by $100 billion over the last two years,“ Rogers said. "That's unknown since World War II."

So what?

It'd be nice if a few democrats actually broke away from the herd and thought for themselves once in a while.

There's nothing wrong with being critical and trying to find the best solutions within one's own party.

Liberals haven't got that one down yet. It's been observed that when the first talking points come out on the liberal websites and news outlets, liberals simply repeat the same phrases and key words for the rest of the day.

Give me a party who can disagree on finding the best solutions in wanting to do what's best for the country any day.

The Medicare proposals in the 2014 budget resolution developed by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) are essentially the same as those in last year’s Ryan budget. Once again, Chairman Ryan proposes to replace Medicare’s guarantee of health coverage with a premium-support voucher and raise the age of eligibility for Medicare from 65 to 67. Together, these changes would shift substantial costs to Medicare beneficiaries and (with the simultaneous repeal of health reform) leave many 65- and 66-year-olds without any health coverage.

Asking for zip codes tells a store what people from a certain area are buying. great information for targeted advertising. no store has ever asked me for my phone number, and I've spent a lot of time in Lowes, home Depot and OSH the last few months.
It's a large country Eman and the states all have different laws regarding privacy and such.

In Florida, Lowes will ask for your phone number if you're not paying with a credit or Lowes preferred card explaining that it's for the purpose of returns. The cashier won't argue if you refuse however and will process your transaction.

It would seem democrats have the monopoly on tokens then. If dependent minorities are used as tools for votes...serving as an indication of something else.

Anyways, I was so wet I thought I was bleeding down there and pretty soon dad had his whole hand up inside my little love muscle and was rocking it back and forth and I remember Uncle Bill came up by the head of the bed, took me by the hair and stuffed the big purple head of what I now know was his reproductive organ in my mouth and screamed when I bit down hard, I have always been an independent minded woman.

You are being factually incorrect again! Why do you libtards always leave out the part that says anyone over 54 is not affected by the changes? I just had this same argument with another libtard on another thread. Factually incorrect? I should call it factually dishonest.

I finally fainted when Dad and Uncle Bill got in my bed and kneeled facing each other. They picked me up and spread my little legs then dropped me down on top of their pulsing purple organs. I don't need to tell you where they put them!

Monday morning was a mess! I had to go to school walking bowlegged with half my hair cemented to my head. I was so ashamed. I'm ashamed now! It's a relief to finally have all that off my chest AND out of my hair.
