Although Social Security & Medicare make up a sizable portion of the budget does mean they add to the debt.

Both programs are funded & the funding they generate pay for the programs.

My God, Carol, get a freaking grip & get better informed.

When there's an inexperienced and overzealous radical liberal sitting in the Oval Office who desires nothing more than to fundamentally transform this nation into his image and he has a majority in both houses, it's understandable why republicans would refuse to allow them to cause more damage.
The Republicans gave Obama and the Democrats their coveted tax increases and got nothing in return as promised - their usual pattern of making empty promises and then blaming Republicans.
Why should Congress get special exemptions from Obamacare and no one else?
Why should corporations be granted a one year delay and not the rest of us?
Why would Obama and Reid dig in their heels rather than make these reasonable changes to Obamacare to end the shutdown?
Democrats have nothing to be proud of. So why constantly defend them?
"Carol"
What in the heck are you doing on this thread? "nutsucker" claims he ran you off again. Are you trying to make a liar out of "nutsucker" again?

Well, what are you going to do? These people use religion to protect them from secular law. The worse part is they did it for money.

"UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. It's the Post Office that's always having problems."
If this wasn't a Freudian slip to beat all Freudian slips...
Obama knows big government can't efficiently manage itself or anything else, but his hunger for power and control is stronger than being honest about it. It just slipped out anyway.
Pass a law forcing UPDS & FED Ex to pass every mailbox in the country 6 days a week & let me know how they are doing.
Yeah

I had to laugh at her assertion that "there are no penalties, no repercussions, and the sympathetic press plugs their ears, shuts their eyes, and closes their mouths" to those who criticize "Christians". When, in reality, that describes exactly what the Catholic church and "sympathetic press" did in dealing with pedophilia and priests. Amazing how they think they can just sweep that under the rug. If it was any other organization, the Catholic Church would have been shut down and run out of town.
What bothers me is that's EXACTLY what he's trying to do... protect the Church at all cost.

There's no remorse... not anger... no feeling of betrayal... just a strong, instinctive desire to protect the Church at any cost.

As far as he's concerned about the victims, well, they don't exist!

if by constant you mean this time around that's not really constant.
he's caved at every turn until now. your right wing whining about this time around impresses no one.
Obama is not running for reelection, so i would imagine with the success that's he's having right now in showing the country what he's had to deal with for the last 5 years his middle finger will be very busy.
and that's the Obama that we should've seen from day one. it's not like he would have been fighting against GOP policies that had been proven to work.

Al Qaeda is regaining strength in Iraq, which should surprise no one for the Bush installed Iraqi Shiite led government is assisting Shiite led Syria and Iran. Geez__who didn't see that coming???

Meanwhile, the autonomous Kurds are ready to take on any rebel faction, including Al Qaeda because the Kurds are over the sectarian bullshyt.

So based on your claims, you should be demanding the military should be put out to bid as well.
Hey, and while we're at it, why not put the government out to bid too!!!
C'mon son! Get the ball rolling!
Bush did that by hiring Blackwater private military and paid them more than our own soldiers.
That's what the Republicans are all about; the zest and quest for funneling government funds into their pockets.
That's what Jeb Bush is all about; he is dying for public education funds to line his pockets, all the while turning our children into a bunch of zombies staring at a computer screen all day with his bogus online school. They're all a bunch of thieves and Lois is a moron.

Oh, that's only boot on the ground.

How about the Navy? And the Air Force? And by golly, it should be opened up for international competition in order to make it truly capitalistic.

But I do agree the cons are in it for the money. For some reason tho, they can't show where it's clearly stated in the US Constitution!
