Federal deficit shrinks at surprising rate
It's on track to fall below where it was when Obama took office, and the long-term debt is more stable, the Congressional Budget Office says.
If you don't know how to do differential equations, just go here
http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/
and tell us what the deficit was up to when the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government in January, 2007; what happened to the deficit and debt between then and when the TEA Party began influencing Congress in January, 2011; and how much the TEA Party affected the deficit since.

Besides, Obama isn't even involved in government. He's nothing more than a cardboard cutout of a commercial to make it appear as if someone's actually president.
Now, to educate you on the Constitution:
Congress, and only Congres has the authority to borrow and spend.
The last time we had a budget... it's been so long I doubt anyone even remembers a budget from Congress... Hell. It was before Obama became president.... what a coincidence.

For those who have an education:
Look at the first derivative of both debt and deficit. Tell us about how the first derivative has a large positive magnitude while the Democrats have a super majority in the Senate and a dominant majority in the House. Look at the second derivative. You'll discover the debt and deficit are not only increasing, but there is an accelleration component. Now, tell us how the first derivative of the deficit actually becomes zero after the TEA Party begins to influence Congress, and the first derivative of the debt becomes a constant, and the second derivative becomes zero.
What we need is for the first derivative of the deficit to be negative. We can survive with a negative first derivative and a second derivative of zero. With a positive second derivative of the debt, anyone can tell you that government is certain to collapse.

In short, the TEA Party saved the country.

Tell us about your calculations of the first and second derivatives of the debt and deficit before and after the TEA Party began to influence Congress.

The TEA Party saved the country should be your conclusion if you know how to do differential equations.

As an example, I just wrote a check for almost 5,000 dollars to the IRS about a discrepancy they claim in my 2011 tax return. My lawyer said it would cost me about that same amount to contest it.
Now, that's coincidentally like a tactic I use in negotiations. I assess a value to a point being negotiated, and I work around arguments of approximately equal value until the opposition concedes.
When the IRS targets you, all normal functions cease and you go into a completely different mode of operation, regardless of guilt or innocence.
You'd know this if you have any knowledge of what happens in the world that actually exists all around you.
but isn't it a 'world' that's reserved for those who the IRS thinks are trying to game the system?

'Finally someone is saying what I've been thinking about the IRS-TEA party "scandal." There's no scandal here--just the IRS doing their job, looking into organizations that evidently are violating the law. AND if you loudly proclaim that you think the income tax is illegal, dontcha think you just might be at risk of being audited to see if you are putting your beliefs into practice?

From the article:
"the real scandal...is that 501(c)(4) groups have been engaged in political activity in such a sustained and open way. As Fred Wertheimer, the President of Democracy 21, a government-ethics watchdog group, put it,'it is clear that a number of groups have improperly claimed tax-exempt status as section 501(c)(4)‘social welfare’ organizations in order to hide the donors who financed their campaign activities in the 2010 and 2012 federal elections.'" Washington’s scandal machinery, rusty from recent disuse, is cranking back up to speed due to the alleged targeting of conservative groups by the Internal Revenue Service. Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said,“It’s the kind of thing that scares the American people to their core. When Americans are being targeted for audits based on their political beliefs, that needs to change.” Senator Susan Collins, of Maine, called on the President to apologize. George Will said President Obama could be impeached. Obama himself is taking the path of contrition. At a news conference Monday, the President said,“If in fact I.R.S. personnel engaged in the kind of practices that have been reported on and were intentionally targeting conservative groups, then that’s outrageous. And there’s no place for it.” More hearings, with more outrage, are planned.

In light of this, it might be useful to ask: Did the I.R.S. actually do anything wrong?" Check this out: http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/comment...

So, your question is, why would Obama need Al Qaeda to kidnap a US ambassador when he could do it himslef, right?
Al Qaeda wasn't losing men during the attack because the White House (Vallerie Jarrett, Obama isn't even involved in government) ordered all units to not engage Al Qaeda while they attempted to kidnap Stevens.
Al Qaeda had explosives, RPGs and hand grenades. Why didn't they just blow the door away and light him up with their AKs? Because blowing the door might kill Stevens, and the intent was to kidnap Stevens, not kill him.
The only reason Al Qaeda attacked a, how did you denigrate it, "temporary rented consular building in Bumfuck Libya" was to kidnap an ambassador of the United States of America. Here's what the plan was:
The security for the ambassador would be reduced by the administration making it easier to kidnap the ambassador. During the attack, the White House (Vallerie Jarrett) would issue orders with presidential authority to stand down any US Armed Forces assets that were pre-positioned specifically to respond to specifically a terrorist attack specifically on our embassy specifically in Libya. Then, the White House would lie to cover up Al Qaeda's involvement while the network "news" programs would mislead the country concentrating on where Stevens was, what condition he was in, and the progress of the "negotiations" with the Muslim Brotherhood, who has a permenant presence in the White House, to exchange Stevens for that terrorist blind sheik in prison for attempting to murder 30 THOUSAND Americans.
However, Plan A went wrong and the ambassador died of smoke inhalation when Al Qaeda tried to smoke him out of the room he baricaded himself in.
And, just like Al Bundy, nobody in the White House had a plan B.
Even you have to laugh at the bufoonery in the White House today.
I'd laugh if it were happening in some other country.
So if Obama had the CIA do the job, there would've been no need to smoke him out, or blow away the door. How hard would it have been to tell Stevens to meet so & so at the consulate & kidnap him without a fight? He was under orders so, if he were told to come alone, he would've. Secondly, there are small explosive devices made for just blowing off doors so, that kills you little theory ! That theory is no more than right wrong conspiracy spin that you've bought into like Enron stock. It makes no sense. There are a thousand ways to have Stevens kidnapped without conspiring with the enemy! More better & effective ways!

Views of the Tea Party movement are at their lowest point ever, with voters for the first time evenly divided when asked to match the views of the average Tea Party member against those of the average member of Congress. Only eight percent (8%) now say they are members of the Tea Party, down from a high of 24% in April 2010 just after passage of the national health care law.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 30% of Likely U.S. Voters now have a favorable opinion of the Tea Party. Half (49%) of voters have an unfavorable view of the movement. Twenty-one percent (21%) are undecided.

RACIST ORGANIZATIONS, NAACP & LA RAZA, ATTACK TEA PARTY MOVEMENT FOR ALLEGED “RACISM”
Jul 12th, 2010 at 11:01 am
by SER.

Not suprising but very disappointing that the NAACP would stoop to such deceit as this:

NAACP CONSIDERS RESOLUTION DECRYING RACIST ELEMENT IN TEA PARTY MOVEMENT

Media is rife with comments from the NAACP — a racist organization by concept and organizational principles — that are racist in reference to persons of races-other-than-Black-or-Brow n.

The NAACP and other, similar organizations (race-based, racialist organized, racially-purposed) are organized upon principles that promote one race — theirs or in the case of the NAACP,“Black”.

Actually,“Negro” is the actual name for the race of issue as to the NAACP but emotional demands to use an inacurate word to define a race among others has taken hold. So “Black” is the going term, however inaccurate academically but trendy per the Leftwing. It’s called political indoctrination when entire cultures are renamed to suit a political perspective, such as that.

The principle of organizing upon and promoting one race and one race only (“Black” or any other) and which also condemn others for their racial differences — based upon the assumption that their racial differences represent “opposition” to the one race being advocated — is racism. It’s racialist in principle (just defined) as it is also a vehicle used for racist purposes.

The NAACP — National Association for the Advancement of Colored People”(“colored people” seems far more a racialist term than does the actual racial type name of “Negro”), the NAACP organizes upon the principles as in it’s name — it seeks privilege based upon race, which, again, is racism in action. The very idea that one race and one race only should receive “advancement”— which means customized privileges in society and taxpayer funding to make that function, another racialist supposition upon our society — is racist. Note there isn’t any effort to seek “advancement” of people in general, of poor people or uneducated people or persons of other disadvantages, the “advancement” is demanded for some people based on and only on their race. Again, that’s racism: that’s a racist organization, that’s racialist organizing.

You are obviously ignorant of the history of the IRS and its contact with the population.
Yes, we pay too much taxes. For instance, we shouldn't be paying for Janet Napolitano to buy more tanks than were landed on D-Day, more machine guns than the Marines had on Iwo Jima, and enough ammunition for both sides to fight World War I for twenty years.
... just to cite one example of what we're ludicrously being taxed for, not to mention the grave danger this procurement puts the population in. Everyone seems to forget that Marxist communists have never been bothered with the necessity of slaughtering millions of their population to impose their ideology. The Marxist communists running the White House today are no different than any of the multiple mass-murdering Marxist communist so evident in recent history.
Yup. We pay for way too much.
What we need is a flat tax. EVERYBODY pays. No exemptions. No exceptions. No excuses. If a homeless crackhead gets ten dollars, he should give, oh, let's say, a dollar fifty to the government.
That way, the so-called "rich" will always pay more than the people you idiots ludicrously call "poor".
