And those are the ones that are on them every day-for the rest of their lives-another 50 million take them on a sporadic basis. Do you think that is normal?
And yes I love Rush.
I'm in agreement with you about antidepressant drugs; however, if a person is truly psychotic, what is the remedy?
What about pain medication like oxycontin? You're boyfriend Rush has parties with bowls of them on various tables in his house.

Oh great, stay tuned for Terry Schiavo youtubes and dead fetus photos.
There used to be a group of those nutjobs holding Bibles and harassing a womens clinic nearby; the clinic finally moved. These people are sick in the head.

<quoted text> Suppose you spend more money this month than your income. This situation is called a "budget deficit". So you borrow (ie; use your credit card). The amount you borrowed (and now owe) is called your debt. You have to pay interest on your debt. If next month you spend more than your income, another deficit, you must borrow some more, and you'll still have to pay the interest on your debt (now larger). If you have a deficit every month, you keep borrowing and your debt grows. Soon the interest payment on your loan is bigger than any other item in your budget. Eventually, all you can do is pay the interest payment, and you don't have any money left over for anything else. This situation is known as bankruptcy.
"Reducing the deficit" is a meaningless soundbite. If the DEFICIT is any amount more than ZERO, we have to borrow more and the DEBT grows.
Each year since 1969, Congress has spent more money than its income. The Treasury Department has to borrow money to meet Congress's appropriations. Here is a direct link to the Congressional Budget Office web site's deficit analysis. We have to pay interest* on that huge, growing debt; and it cuts into our budget big time.
You want to let these clowns spend unchecked by getting rid of the debt ceiling. What a moran!!!
When the government reaches the debt ceiling (just like a credit card limit) the only action necessary is to reduce spending to current income.

Well, while I do not think they will ever be successful in totally outlawing abortion in this country; they are busy whittling away at womens rights from state to state. They are sick, sick, sick in the head mental cases from hell.
Vaginal probes, ultrasounds, forced counseling by religious organizations, how many states have completely closed down abortion clinics? Making it impossible for a poor woman to get there. Making it illegal for it to be covered by insurance; for krissakes if you're paying for health insurance, why isn't everything included? Outlawing birth control pills and the morning after pill? They're batshyt cwayzeeeee.

You want to kill your future go ahead but you saying that people trying to stop the killing of innocent babies is sick in the head is some very dark humor I must say.

So while on vacation I had to listen to some rightwing moron stating how Obama promised to close the base at Guantanamo yet his company was asked to provide a bid for more infrastructure.

Folks, Obama never said he wanted to close the base, he wanted to close the detention camp.

Also he was denied funding the closure of the camp by Congress, they would not fund this.

Also contrary to rightwing belief Obama is not a dictator so he cannot just close the camp on his own.

I gave him a pass as I was on vacation.

No, the "1%" don't want that kind of labor.

Immigrants are far superior.

Yes, and look who is their number one water carrier? I guess she's part of the 1%.
It has become like a police state here in Florida; we have undercover cops in plain cars cruising around watching everyone, pulling cars over for random bullshyt; they're the frontline salesmen fueling the criminal justice system by providing an endless supply of people to the private prison companies who put our governor in office. Creating more and more felons, so that they can never get a job, or an apartment, or a loan, or go to college; what do they expect these people to do?
