Do you practice being dumb? Based on your posts you must. Every budget of the boy president, nobama, is larger than any of Bush's.

Happy New Year
Obama just followed Bush's precedent when it comes to budgeting. However, Obama's spending is substantially less than the 7.0 percent growth rate under Bush.

Spending growth in Bush’s first seven years: 8%, 7%, 6%, 8%, 7%, 3%, 9%.
Spending growth in Obama’s six years: 13%, 6%, 2%,-3%, 5%, 2%.

There was a time when you were sincere and occasionally put up a sensible post. These days you're no different than Bronach.
You just don't like me holding up a mirror in front of the liberal ideology you strongly support.

Which party has governed the poorest cities in this country the longest? Take a guess.

Which senior advisor to the president has a reputation in Chicago as one of the worst slumlords in the city? Her name starts with a "V".

Which party refuses to even entertain the idea of vouchers so poverty-stricken children can at least have a remote chance at a better future?

And which party refuses to even entertain the idea of reforms - across the board - to eliminate all the waste and fraud and improve government programs to actually work better for the poor and to make taxes more fair for everyone?

Okay, I put down the mirror. Go back into your denial mode.

New Jersey's Top Paper Wonders If Christie Can Be Trusted 'As A Potential Future Leader Of Our Country'
The largest newspaper in New Jersey responded to the latest revelations in the George Washington Bridge scandal with a blistering editorial of Chris Christie and his staff.
The Star-Ledger's editorial board, which endorsed Christie for re-election last year despite "deep reservations," argued Wednesday that the governor's presidential pedigree should be questioned amid the latest development in the scandal.
His attempts to laugh this off now appear to be dishonest, though we can't yet be sure that he personally knew about the correspondence of one of his top aides. Still, Christie bears responsibility either way. If it turns out he did know, he is obviously lying and unfit for office -- let alone a 2016 presidential run.
And even if he did not, his officials are liars. If Christie can't control them, how can we trust him as a potential future leader of our country?
Documents obtained by TPM and other outlets implicate some of Christie's top aides in the scandal. The trove of emails show officials talking about the order to close lanes on the bridge.
"Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee," wrote Christie's Deputy Chief of Staff for Legislative and Intergovernmental Affairs, Bridget Anne Kelly in an August email.
Christie has denied that the closures were politically motivated, but Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich has speculated that it was done because he did not join other Garden State Democrats in endorsing the governor's re-election 2013 bid.
Following the release of the emails, Sokolich said it was clear he had "been punished not for something I've done, but for something I didn't do."

Interesting.

Why should Christie be held responsible? When will Obama be held responsible for the lies and actions of himself and the people under him?

Hot New Wood Stoves: High-Tech & Eco-Friendly
By Marc Lallanilla, Assistant Editor | January 07, 2014 05:24pm ET
Ever since the first caveman threw a log on the first fire, burning wood for heating and cooking has helped to define human civilization. But wood as a fuel source has some inherent drawbacks, especially the gases, particulate matter and other pollutants produced by burning logs.
A new generation of high-efficiency wood stoves, however, has become available that are as low in emissions as they are high in energy efficiency. And as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) introduces new regulations designed to make wood stoves even more efficient, people are rediscovering wood as a smart, renewable source of energy.
Last week, the EPA proposed tightening its emission standards for wood stoves: Currently, the EPA certifies wood stoves that produce 7.5 grams of fine particulate matter per hour, but new regulations would reduce that level to 4.5 grams per hour by next year, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports, and lower it again to 1.3 grams per hour by 2019.[Top 10 Alternative Energy Bets]
The EPA's new restrictions, however, appear unlikely to diminish the popularity of wood stoves as a heating source: The use of wood as a primary residential heat source in the United States has grown by 39 percent since 2004, according to the Department of Energy, and about 8 percent of homes nationwide now use wood as a secondary source of heat.
And in certain cold, forested regions, wood is even more popular: Almost 50 percent of homes in rural New England, for example, use wood (either cord wood or wood pellets) for space heating, water heating or cooking. As the cost of heating oil rises, more homeowners can be expected to add wood stoves to their residences, either as primary or supplemental heat sources.
Out with the old, in with the new
But not all wood stoves are built alike, and there's virtually no comparison between the wood stoves made after 1988 — when the EPA first issued performance standards — and the smoky wood stoves of earlier years.
Older wood stoves burn wood inefficiently and must be fed fresh logs on a regular basis to keep a room warm. Additionally, older stoves generate much more air pollution — as much as 70 percent more — and are notorious for smoking- up the inside of homes almost as much as the outside.
The superiority of next-generation wood stoves was on full display last November in Washington, D.C., where the contestants in the 2013 Wood Stove Decathlon gathered to show off their technological superiority. The competition was sponsored by the departments of Energy and Agriculture, Popular Mechanics magazine, the Alliance for Green Heat and other groups.
Some models on display used computer technology, gas-flow analyses or catalytic converters to reduce emissions and increase efficiency. An entry from the University of Maryland used a thermoelectric generator (TEG)— which derives energy from the heat of the stove — to power a fan that pulled warm exhaust air back into the stove, improving efficiency while also conserving heat.
A new Woodstock generation
Competition winner Woodstock Soapstone of Vermont, however, improved on existing technologies to create a stove that achieved an impressive 82 percent wood-burning efficiency, while generating only 0.54 grams of particulate emissions per hour, according to Popular Mechanics.
"It's a complicated stove that we needed to simplify down to its main components," Woodstock Soapstone president Tom Morrissey told Popular Mechanics. "We asked ourselves: Are we trying to wow the judges, or are we making something that's really simple? We went with simple, and it worked very well."
