Protecting yourself from a thief is always a natural human response.
I once was told by someone who worked alongside cops in a civilian role that the only difference between cops and criminals is that the cops are legal.
So it is with many politicians; the only difference between a criminal and the Magic Negro is that he is legal.
Even though I agree with you that there's nothing wrong with seniors supplementing their SS incomes under the table, my supplemental part-time income will be on a payroll. Which is okay too. Not making enough to affect SS.

But extra income is extra income, right?

"Tax and Spend" Liberals?
Let's talk about "Borrow and Spend" Republicans.
Now when the government borrows money, it has to pay it back, correct?
And with what does government pay back the debt?
Did you elephants guess TAX DOLLARS? That would be correct.
So the truth comes out. Borrowing is simply a sneaky way of taxing, in which the taxing is deferred further down the road.
So... let's look at the figures.
Out of a 10.5 trillion increase from Reagan to the end of Bush II, Republican presidents acount for 8.9 trillion of it.
Can you spell T-A-X A-N-D S-P-E-N-D Republicans?
I knew that you could.
Liberals spent a million bucks to put a shrimp run on a treadmill and you want to lecture Conservatives about spending?

Carol,

Me a fool?

You are the dolt at carnivals who sticks her head through the wooden target, which on the other side, people throw pies at.

Given the shellacking you take here, you must be used to it by now.

Record snowfall in Spokane
Via Ice Age Now website: http://iceagenow.info/2013/11/record-snowfall...
Spokane International Airport received 1.9 inches of snow Tuesday, enough to snap a 66-year-old daily record by the slimmest of margins.
The most snow Spokane has officially received on Nov. 5 was 1.8 inches in 1947, according to National Weather Service records.

Inflation, high interest rates, lousy foreign policy, micromanager, didn't like playing by the rules, rising energy prices, stagflation, created the Department of Education and Department of Energy.
The Department of Education was a payoff by Carter to teacher unions for their support. It was once part of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare where it should have stayed.
The Department of Energy has become a huge federal bureaucracy over the last 33 years and statistics prove it a colossal failure.
And then there was the "malaise speech". It was a rather depressing time. Carter didn't help to cheer us up.

If only he had been willing to negotiate...

The shutdown could have been avoided if he had agreed to a delay before it happened instead of afterwards.

But continuing to blame Republicans after five years is a hard habit to break. Even with a democratic-controlled Congress for the first two years, he still blamed Republicans.

We can only imagine how hard it must be to break the addiction now.

"Catholic Charities USA receives more than half of its funding each year ($554 million in 2010) from federal grants. In 2012, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops received $63 million…in federal grants."
I see no positives from the dollars taken from citizens that are pissed away on tax-exempt groups like Catholic Charities to subsidize their "charitable" work. It much better to spend those millions to support social welfare programs than help the Catholic church build up its coffers.
What positive effect have we had in the last 5 years from all the grants and loan guarantees to energy companies like Solyndra?

What positive effect have we had in the last 5 years from all the foreign aid (mega billions)?

Why was Carter a terrible president?
Tell us exactly what he did to be considered "terrible".
In other words, provide us details. Facts. What decisions did Carter take which make him a bad president?
The list is a very long one but can we start with his blaming the American public for his failings in his famous “malaise” speech?

Carter, The Loser-In-Chief, was so much like the Magic Negro of today. He was told, as we must tell the Asshole-In-Chief right now, that "Mr. President, you are not leading this nation -- you're just managing the government." and doing a shit-ass job of it at that.

The globe stopped warming a while back. They just kept milking it for all it was worth for as long as they could. But that liberal udder dried up completely.
