Hi AL, I got to go get some beer, give em hell till I get back!Update, Feb. 11: Some readers wrote to us saying we should have made clear the difference between the federal deficit and the federal debt.
A deficit occurs when the government takes in less money than it spends in a given year.
The debt is the total amount the government owes at any given time. So the debt goes up in any given year by the amount of the deficit, or it decreases by the amount of any surplus.
The debt the government owes to the public decreased for a while under Clinton, but the debt was by no means erased.

Greed trumps truth in this world.
I always go by one rule OBAMIES ZOMBIES my friend.
I always follow the money and it almost always leads me to what really goes on.
The national interest for Washington DC and the national interest of "WE THE PEOPLE" are two different things.
The Pentagon Papers proved we lost Vietnam five years before Nixon pulled us out.
ZOMBIE, what did "WE" win with the Korean War?
How about Iraq and Afghanistan?
All lost big time IMO except for the wealthy few who made Billions on it.
The only thing new in the world is the history you dont know.

"The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists." J. Edgar Hoover
J. Edgar Hoover Planned Mass Jailing in 1950
December 23, 2007 http://tinyurl.com/26s5jy
A newly declassified document shows that J. Edgar Hoover, the longtime director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, had a plan to suspend habeas corpus and imprison some 12,000 Americans he suspected of disloyalty.
Hoover sent his plan to the White House on July 7, 1950, 12 days after the Korean War began. It envisioned putting suspect Americans in military prisons.
Hoover wanted President Harry S. Truman to proclaim the mass arrests necessary to protect the country against treason, espionage and sabotage. The F.B.I would apprehend all individuals potentially dangerous to national security, Hoovers proposal said. The arrests would be carried out under a master warrant attached to a list of names provided by the bureau.
The names were part of an index that Hoover had been compiling for years.The index now contains approximately twelve thousand individuals, of which approximately ninety-seven per cent are citizens of the United States, he wrote.
In order to make effective these apprehensions, the proclamation suspends the Writ of Habeas Corpus, it said.
Habeas corpus, the right to seek relief from illegal detention, has been a fundamental principle of law for seven centuries. The Bush administrations decision to hold suspects for years at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, has made habeas corpus a contentious issue for Congress and the Supreme Court today.
The Constitution says habeas corpus shall not be suspended unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion, the public safety may require it. The plan proposed by Hoover, the head of the F.B.I. from 1924 to 1972, stretched that clause to include threatened invasion or attack upon United States troops in legally occupied territory.

Hmmmm, is this where your knowledge is coming from...copying Obama, er excuse me Barak Hussein Obama staring at the teleprompter all day and forgets who he is supposed to thank, or that US has 50 states and not 57 states as he formed the words from his mouth or a shout out to all you "corpsemen" floating out in the deep blue sea or somewhere dead, or that Afghanistan's citizens speaks a different language than Iraqi citizens, or my favorite he quotes the Koran but having problems quoting passages of the Bible (remember, his words not mine, "I am a Christian" while quoting the Koran) is it????
People we are in trouble, deep, if the liberals are unable to see what is actually happening to America and what is floating around in their minds.

Do we really know the cost of George Bush's Wars?
The research findings thus far include:
The death toll of the wars, conservatively estimated, is approximately 300,000 individuals, uniformed and civilian, as a direct result of violence. More than 180,000 are civilians.
The armed conflicts in Pakistan and Yemen have taken more lives than the conflict in Afghanistan.
Indirect deaths from the wars, including those related to malnutrition, damaged health infrastructure, and environmental degradation, may far outnumber deaths from combat. While these deaths are difficult to count due to factors such as lack of comparable baseline mortality figures, a reasonable estimate is a ratio of four indirect deaths to one direct death in contemporary conflicts. This would put the death toll at more than 1 million.
Millions of people have been displaced indefinitely and are living in grossly inadequate conditions. As of March 2012, the number of war refugees and displaced persons 7.4 million is equivalent to all of the people of Connecticut and Oregon fleeing their homes.
The wars have been accompanied by erosion's in civil liberties at home and human rights violations abroad.
Some costs of the wars will not peak until mid-century. Many of the wars costs are invisible to Americans, buried in a variety of budgets, and so have not been counted or assessed. For example, while most people think the Pentagon war appropriations are equivalent to the wars budgetary costs, the true numbers are twice that, and the full economic cost of the wars much larger yet. The war bills already paid and obligated to be paid by the U.S. federal government as of fiscal year 2012 are $3.7 trillion in constant dollars. Interest on the debt incurred for the war is estimated by one reasonable scenario at another $1 trillion by 2020.
As with former U.S. wars, the costs of paying for veterans care into the future will be a sizable portion of the full costs of the war.
More than 6,500 U.S. soldiers have died in the wars, and levels of injury and illness among those who have returned are startling, with a quarter- million disability claims filed with the Veterans Administration. Many deaths and injuries among U.S.contractors have not been identified.
The ripple effects on the U.S. economy have also been significant, including job loss and interest rate increases, and those effects have been underappreciated.
While it was promised that the U.S. invasions would bring democracy to Afghanistan and Iraq, both continue to rank low in global rankings of political freedom, with warlords wielding power in Afghanistan with U.S. support, and Iraqi communities more segregated today than before by gender and ethnicity as a result of the war.

"LET FREEDOM RING"
My Country Tis of Thee
My country,'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From ev'ry mountainside
Let freedom ring!
My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills,
Like that above.
Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom's song;
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.
Our fathers' God to Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright,
With freedom's holy light,
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God our King.
Additional verse to celebrate Washington's Centennial
Our joyful hearts today,
Their grateful tribute pay,
Happy and free,
After our toils and fears,
After our blood and tears,
Strong with our hundred years,
O God, to Thee.
Additional verses by Henry van Dyke
We love thine inland seas,
Thy groves and giant trees,
Thy rolling plains;
Thy rivers' mighty sweep,
Thy mystic canyons deep,
Thy mountains wild and steep,--
All thy domains.
Thy silver Eastern strands,
Thy Golden Gate that stands
Fronting the West;
Thy flowery Southland fair,
Thy North's sweet, crystal air:
O Land beyond compare,
We love thee best!
Additional Abolitionist verses, 1843, A. G. Duncan
My country,'tis of thee,
Stronghold of slavery, of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Where men mans rights deride,
From every mountainside thy deeds shall ring!
My native country, thee,
Where all men are born free, if whites their skin;
I love thy hills and dales,
Thy mounts and pleasant vales;
But hate thy negro sales, as foulest sin.
Let wailing swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees the black mans wrong;
Let every tongue awake;
Let bond and free partake;
Let rocks their silence break, the sound prolong.
Our fathers God! to thee,
Author of Liberty, to thee we sing;
Soon may our land be bright,
With holy freedoms right,
Protect us by thy might, Great God, our King.
It comes, the joyful day,
When tyrannys proud sway, stern as the grave,
Shall to the ground be hurld,
And freedoms flag, unfurld,
Shall wave throughout the world, Oer every slave.
Trump of glad jubilee!
Echo oer land and sea freedom for all.
Let the glad tidings fly,
And every tribe reply,
Glory to God on high, at Slaverys fall
