Total federal revenues doubled from just over $517 billion in 1980 to more than $1 trillion in 1990. In constant inflation-adjusted dollars, this was a 28 percent increase in revenue.
◾
As a percentage of the gross domestic product (GDP), federal revenues declined only slightly from 18.9 percent in 1980 to 18 percent in 1990.4
.
HOW DID REAGAN'S POLICIES AFFECT FEDERAL SPENDING?
Although critics continue to focus on President Reagan's budget "cuts," federal spending rose significantly during the 1980s:
◾
Federal spending more than doubled, growing from almost $591 billion in 1980 to $1.25 trillion in 1990. In constant inflation-adjusted dollars, this was an increase of 35.8 percent.
So revenue increased 28% but spending increased 35.8%. Tell us about national debt during those years. There is a reason Bush called it voodoo economics.

The Democrats controlled Congress. Every budget that Reagan submitted they said was "dead on arrival." Your memory is very selective.

Never the less, trickle down and near total deregulation prevailed as plat de jour. Result? Soaring national debt. Going on a binge and maxing out the nation's credit cards should not to be mistaken for prosperity. The accumulation of that philosophy is killing us in interest now. In mathematics ,its know as exponential growth. The mathematical result is the same regardless of the metric being quantified.

It makes great news. See yourself on TV smashing windows and stealing electronics from people who were in no way connected to the basis of your protest. Such an inspiring way to illustrate your sincerity and create sympathy for your cause.

Control of the individual has always been the consequence of enjoying the fruits of cooperative group living . If I fail to conform to traffic laws, my driving privilege is revoked and I lose freedom to drive where I please. If a messenger brought bad news to the Spartans, they killed the messenger and he lost his freedom to live and breathe.. In Washo society, if your brother died, you were required to marry his wife or wives and take responsibility for his family. If you refused, you would get a death penalty. That is how human society works, by limiting certain freedoms and thereby making society function.,

Democratic coercion and fraud are actions that limit or destroy freedom. The State, Church, various organizations, groups, and individuals are sources of these acts. The acts can limit or remove the individual's choices, control, and properties, the individual loses control of his own life under these acts. The ultimate coercion is loss of life for the victim. Coercion and fraud exist everywhere in this government, and in this society, as the dominant factors shaping contemporary social life.

We are on the same page. Even the DOJ spending money to organize protests against Zimmerman didn't skew the result of the trial. Even the judge giving the jury an out by declaring that Zimmerman could be convicted of manslaughter , even though he was never charged with manslaughter, didn't fool the jury. Trying to portray the unfortunate event as a racially motivated crime did not fool the jury. Any attacker slamming my head into concrete will be shot regardless of his race if I can get out my weapon.
But the rioters have already started. However, because it is Sunday morning, most potential rioters are dealing with severe hangovers, so it may not get really cranked up until later .

Eric Holder's DOJ organizes and finances public protests against innocent until proven guilty defendant George Zimmerman, who has now been found by a jury to be an innocent man.
Still not satisfied at their failure to change the outcome of a trial, DOJ is now threatening to file federal charges against Zimmerman for violation of civil rights of Martin. If that is done, charges should be brought against Eric Holder and the DOJ for malicious prosecution and violation of the civil rights of the innocent Hispanic man, George Zimmerman. DOJ is obviously prejudiced against Zimmerman as evidenced by their financing protest against him.

I absolutely agree....but let's not also forget our Racist Ruler who chimed in with, "If I had a son he would look like Trayvon." Our own Racist Ruler, who as President should have NEVER commented on the situation, is now claiming that ALL black men look alike! And let's not also forget that Eric, Pornstar Look Alike, Holder doesn't do anything without the Racist Ruler's blessing first.
I agree with the Ted, couldn't have said it better myself....

My opinion of Holder as the US Attorney General has solidified into one of total disrespect for his competence, integrity and intelligence. It is totally improper for the chief officer of the courts of the USA to make prejudicial statements regarding defendants in pending trials. Those acts by the US attorney general alone could be the basis for a mistrial. If Holder doesn't realize that, he is too stupid to be attorney general. If he does realize it, he is too unethical and dishonest to be attorney general.

"Economic struggles following the Soviet Union's collapse hit Russia's military hardóbut today, its power was on full display in the country's biggest war games since the Soviet era. Some 160,000 troops and 5,000 tanks were deployed in Siberia and far eastern Russia, the AP reports, while 130 aircraft and a host of ships joined in. Here's just how massive the war games, which began Friday and run through the week, are: They spanned several time zones, and some army units deployed to areas thousands of kilometers away from their bases.

The military exercises come amid tensions with Japan over a group of disputed islands off Japan's Hokkaido Island, and in the face of fears that a strengthening China could push into Russian land despite agreements between the countries. Though Russian officials maintained the war games were just part of regular training, "it's quite obvious that the land part of the exercise is directed at China, while the sea and island part of it is aimed at Japan," says a Russia-based analyst. Russia plans to spend some $615 billion on improving its military through 2020, but some experts doubt the program's effectiveness." Effective or not, this country is cutting it's military, everyone else is beefing up, go figure.

Zimmerman has and is being lynched.He took a black girlfriend to the prom.He tutored minority kids.But the media in this country is now totally out of control.Political hacks are coming out from under their rocks to demonize Zimmerman.The fact that their"hero"was pounding Zimmermans head into the concrete was ignored. Blacks who support this lynching of Zimmerman are simply racists.
