The economy is 15 trillion dollars.
The government is almost 25 percent of the economy.
Therefore, the part of the economy that actually pays for everything is only about 12 trillion dollars.
The total debt is 17 trillion dollars, one and a half times the size of the part of the economy that pays for everything.
The annual deficit has leveled off at 1.3 trillion dollars.
Every year the debt increases at 8 percent.
The real economy is stagnant.
There is no plan in existence to stop the debt from growing at 8 percent every year.
There is no plan in existence to grow the economy.
It's just a matter of time until there won't be any country in the world so stupid they continue giving us money.
Given the above facts, how long do you estimate it will be before our government collapses?
What is the Democrat plan for what to do after the government collapses? Martial law? Create a dictatorship?
20% of that spending is for defense, take a big whack out of that for starters.

And take it up with the Republicans, spending always goes up when a Republican is president and other than Johnson(a Texas big spender) it goes down or is flat, including under Obama -

In New York, most white elected officials are fully enrolled in the Democratic Party. On the other hand, Blacks selected officials are nominally enrolled in the Democratic Party. Blacks are like North Korea. Both may have missiles but neither has a delivery system. Moreover, Black “selected officials” provide added legal protection for whites.

It is easier for Blacks to construct a delivery system for a political party than it is for North Korea to construct a delivery system for nuclear warheads. Nonetheless, Blacks refuse to form a political party and construct a delivery system for fear that it would be a “threat” to white supremacy. Blacks live for white “approval” even if it means committing suicide.

I have no confidence that anything will happen after the state-sponsored, unconstitutional assassination of Kimani Gray. If Barron is unable to do the job of pacifying Blacks, whites will call in Sharpton from the bullpen. There must be racial harmony at all costs. In the meantime, Blacks are knocking on the wrong door, talking to the wrong people and asking the wrong questions. This repeated conduct is defined as “insanity”.

Where is the Democratic Party on the senseless and state-sponsored fatal shooting of 16-year-old Kimani Gray in the back? There is already prima facie evidence of a homicide. Prima facie evidence of a felony is sufficient to warrant an indictment. No grand jury has been convened. This would be odd for a white victim who was shot by a Black person. Andrew Cuomo, Eric Schneiderman and Joe Hynes, as Democrats, are in the executive branch of government. They have the responsibility of enforcing the laws.“Justice delayed is justice denied”.

Don't need it. I remember the Carter fiasco well.
Can you say "stagflation"?
You're still an idiot.

"Stagflation" occurred during the Nixon years, dummy. After he played dictator and imposed wage and price controls.

""Following Richard Nixon's imposition of wage and price controls on 15 August 1971, an initial wave of cost-push shocks in commodities was blamed for causing spiraling prices. Perhaps the most notorious factor cited at that time was the failure of the Peruvian anchovy fishery in 1972, a major source of livestock feed. The second major shock was the 1973 oil crisis, when the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) constrained the worldwide supply of oil.[17] Both events, combined with the overall energy shortage that characterised the 1970s, resulted in actual or relative scarcity of raw materials. The price controls resulted in shortages at the point of purchase, causing, for example, queues of consumers at fuelling stations and increased production costs for industry.

First of all, we're 2013 yrs AD. See how fast you made it about religion, skipped right over Emperor Constantine. Don't want to talk about that, do we? You are confused. Christians destroyed ancient scriptures, rewrote &, left books out of their finished product to gain a stronger hold on the masses &, killed there own in the name of Christ, complete blasphemy! You seem to believe that this is some kind of modern event, it's not! Things will remain the same as long as western civilization tries to force there influence apon countries of cultural difference. But hey, you believe what you want. Just know that Moammar Gadhafi, Saddam Hussein,and Osama bin Laden were all friends of America before they were led to slaughter, all Muslims that were go to guys for America in that region, who eventually were marked for death by the same people they were helping. Guess that's not fishy to you either? Remember, by default America is a Christian country!

Newspapers and magazines are not subject to government regulation. American jurisprudence says that this would be a violation of the First Amendment. Thus, Jet magazine has no obligation to print the truth. New York Amsterdam News, on the other hand, may simply avoid printing any article or editorial on Tawana Brawley.

Initially, newspapers and magazines must listen to their white advertisers. Madison Avenue Initiative is the agent of white advertisers in the Black community. It is their “snitch”. Any Black person or Black-led and Black-financed organization which seeks to “upset the applecart” is reported to white advertisers.

Educated, Black consumers may veto the white advertisers and their agent, Madison Avenue Initiative. An educated Black consumer refuses to finance his or her own oppression and will organize a boycott to refrain from financing it by Blacks. The Madison Avenue Initiative discourages boycotts. This was the message in the aftermath of the assassination of Trayvon Martin. It frowns on the Harlem Boycott in the 1930&#8242;s and the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955.

Censorship was strictly enforced on plantations. Enslaved Africans would be tortured or lynched for exercising “free speech”. These Africans were required to give deference to fallacies since “only the truth shall set you free”. The plantation became a mythological institution. Fallacies were elevated over facts. This elevation continues today as a “badge of slavery”.

The drum was taken away from enslaved Africans and its use was forbidden on plantations. Since the advent of radio and television, Blacks have been prevented from owning them and the U.S. Supreme Court has said that affirmative action is illegal to be used by Blacks to gain access to the airwaves.

Blacks in the United States have never established a media rights organization to combat racism in the airwaves. This is especially true in the tri-state. Since the decision inOffice of Communications of the United Church of Christ v. Federal Communications Commission, 123 U.S. App. D.C. 328 F.2d 994 (1966), an organized group may participate in the licensing process.

Law abiding citizens usually report crimes, dufus. Also, responsible people also have their possessions insured. For an insurance policy to pay, the insurance company will require a police report.
So, I can't see where the bill you reference will change anything. Responsible people already do that. So, what was the real purpose of that bill?

I'll post this again just for you.
One of the most interesting conclusions to come out of the seventh International Climate Change Conference sponsored by the Heartland Institute held in Chicago last year was that natural climate cycles have already turned from warming to cooling, global temperatures have already been declining for more than 10 years, and global temperatures will continue to decline for another two decades or more.
The Heartland Institute has effectively become the international headquarters of the climate realists, an analog to the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
http://www.forbes.com/sites/peterferrara/2012...
You can see the speeches at that conference here.
http://climateconference.heartland.org/
Sure Carol let's take a look at your sources. The Heartland Institute can call themselves climate change realists all they want but in fact they're deniers and that's not really a surprise since one of their major donors is the Koch brothers who don't really want people to know how much burning fossil fuels is screwing up not only the environment but our climate as well. Another donor is the Castle Rock Foundation started by the ultra right wing beer baron Adolph Coors who also funded the Landmark Legal Foundation that hasn't seen environmental protection legislation that they don't hate.
The Heartland Institute was also in bed with the tobacco industry disputing the dangers of second hand smoke something that virtually all physicians and medical associations accept as fact. In other words this group will whore for anybody that ponies up enough cash.
Peter Ferrara is a real pip advocating for privatizing Social Security and giving it over to the Wall Street pirates. That would have worked out well when the market crashed at the end of the Bush administration.
Whenever I check a source Carol I ask myself "cui bono"? That's Latin for "who benefits?" Or put another way "follow the money". If a group like the Heartland Institute is being financed by those that have a financial stake in their findings then they should be rejected out of hand.

Fifteen years after I had graduated from law school, I became a co-founder of United African Movement. It was Black-led and Black-financed with Hon. Marcus Garvey as the spiritual leader. Because Blacks in 1988 believed that “freedom is free” it was practically impossible to sustain a Black-led and Black-financed organization without a “sacrificial lamb”. Blacks fail to appreciate “fair share” in a political organization.

So, explain how your feeding at the Gov't trough is justified, while extending health insurance to millions of needy Americans isn't??
Again, the USA is the only major industrialized nation on earth not to provide healthcare for it's citizens.
Include Israel among those who do provide healthcare to it's citizens. Which we're paying for.
Yes, the socialist nation of Israel, which all the conservatives swear undying fealty to, has Universal Healthcare.
""Romney praises health care in Israel, where research says ‘strong government influence’ has driven down costs""
""Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney had some very kind things to say about the Israeli health care system at a fundraiser there Monday. He praised Israel for spending just 8 percent of its GDP on health care and still remaining a “pretty healthy nation:”
How it has gotten there, however, may not be to the Republican candidate’s liking: Israel regulates its health care system aggressively, requiring all residents to carry insurance and capping revenue for various parts of the country’s health care system.""

You're confusing them with facts again....

You are correct. Prior to Europeans arriving, there were constant wars between nations and tribes at the borders of their traditional lands. Kidnapping women and killing all the men in a small "village" (not a proper term because of the nomadic nature of many of the Native American nations).
The Iroquois completely wiped out the entire Huron nation in one of those wars.

Funny how none of the nitwits mention the ethics investigation of Michelle Bachmann.

Or the criminality of the Republiclown Governor of Virginia.

Or the criminal acts of Vern Buchanan (R-Fla.).

Or the criminal acts of Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.)

Or the Christian Fascist Judge in TN who decided a mother can't choose the name of her own child.

I guess when Christians are behaving like the Taliban, it's a good thing.

They love to criticize Anthony Weiner, who never committed a crime or adultery, yet defend Mark Sanford, who lied to the people of SC and his wife and family by running off to Argentina to meet his latin lover.

And they never talk of diaper wearing David Vitter, who had some really weird sex issues.

After the Civil War, the Democratic Party opened up its doors to Blacks who were willing to be political pawns. Stated differently, Blacks had duties but not rights in the Democratic Party. Blacks could elect candidates but they could not select them. Until 1944, Blacks were unable to get around the “white primary”.

Before 1965, unintelligent Blacks in the South were unable to register and enroll in the Democratic Party. After 1965, all ignorant Blacks nationwide were encouraged to join the Democratic Party. Whites finally realized that ignorance breeds fear. Terrorism had been an effective tool. The KKK had practiced free speech and free associations.

White merchants in Harlem openly practiced racial discrimination until the 1940&#8242;s. Sufi Abdul Hamid organized and led a boycott against these merchants in 1934. He was joined by John H. Johnson and the Citizens League for Fair Play. White merchants responded by obtaining a court order which ruled that Blacks must finance their own oppression. This court order ended the boycott.

In 1938, Rev. Adam Clayton Powell Jr. initiated a second boycott of Harlem merchants. Before he initiated this boycott, he had retained Belford V. Lawson, a Black attorney, to challenge white opposition to the use of a boycott as a tool to combat white racism. Lawson was successful in the U.S. Supreme Court and his effort connected the “Harlem Boycott” to the “Montgomery Bus Boycott”.

Blacks are financing their own oppression today because “history is repeating itself”. They have no memory of the “Harlem Boycott” of 1938 and faint memory of the “Montgomery Bus Boycott” in 1955. To move forward, an ethnic group must be able to understand its history and to connect the dots. This requires a fundamental knowledge of history.
