Take a look at our current government on how money is being spent and come back to the table.
To top it all off, China is building F-35 jets that look and perform just like ours.Except, they didn't have to spend trillions of dollars developing them, just hacked the Defense computers.VOILA! Our bridges seem to be falling into rivers, for some reason.Wonder where all that maintenance money went to? Our kids run from hard science courses, to be lawyers and get business degrees.Meanwhile, most of our doctors come from overseas, looks like we're lucky to get them.a lot of our kids seem to have OCD, the rest of them are building bombs to take to school and"get even". Odd how these kids can get super expensive phones, which they then use to get on line to find out how to make bombs.Parents don't seen to have a clue that Johnny is planning a bloodbath.

A declining society due to government straps on US citizens. Fundamentals of true government being overlooked. Our priorities in our present administration have turned the cards on the table and has made us more vulnerable for cyber attacks.

I'm about to join the damned Texas Nationalist Party! Democrats are backwards, and they are about to run the whole country into the ground! Unfortunately, Republicans are no better. So busy trying to please everyone, that they are forgetting the core platform of the Party! And Rick Perry is the worst one!!

This will be his last term in office, he has wronged too many people which are the popular votes. Most republicans will lose due to the same reasons, the underdogs are fed up with theses tactics. Rich get richer, poor get poorer.

Rich get will get richer and poor will get poorer because our future holds a government controlled state if a democrat reaches office in Texas. Middle class will continue to be suffer and eventually be non existence.

Apparently no one seems to care that the IRS is being used as a tool of revenge and intimidation by the current administration. Give it some time.

Unfortunately not. But the Obama health care will demonstrate more true colors ahead. Also, the government controlled environment will continue with the banks being the next step. The people receiving the freebies will see change in how much they receive after the deal is sealed to change our government completely.

Wait till October when the low information ObamaTards find out that the "Affordable" Commie Care isn't free or very affordable either.

Exactly! The Affordable Home Heath Care Program will drive costs across the board as well. Many businesses are going to being charging more as well as the costs of insurance coming to us. Even welfare programs will reflect change when the country discovers that we really can't afford much at all.

And it makes no difference if the Democrats or Republicans are in charge, We The People still get screwed. Career Polititions of both parties carried on our backs, and loyal only to the lobbiest. Can you spell TERM LIMITS? Not that Washington will ever go for them. Bush= two unfunded wars billions of dollars thousands of lives; all wasted. Then along comes Obama=more debt and less freedom. DUMBER&DUMBER.

I believe that term limits need to be removed for Perry so the Conservative Party movement shall continue. If we don't take a stand. Liberal Pukes will continue building to retain ownership of this country. You have to take a stance with the GOP until the Tea Party is formed again to retain party ownership.

Perry needs to go now: Well unless Annita is told otherwise by God. F the party, the parties are the problem. Both parties are for their own agendas and to hell with We The People.

Senator Chuck Schumer {D} is proposing legislation to have the government First go to a judge. Judge will then perform a balancing act. Is the need for information, say from a news organization, Judge would balance the need to know, by government and the robust freedom of the press.
Under current laws, News agencies are required to receive prior warning for search, giving the agency time to oppose the subpoena. Unless of course if the notification would compromise or impede the governments investigations.
Consider however the Supreme Court ruling on January 2010. Corporations are on par with an individuals rights. Does Chucky now want to advance this notification to all citizens. Prior to a search of a suspects property they must give advance notice of their arrival? Are the corporations to have special privileges over the individual citizens now? AP and Fox under investigation presently defend their rights for special privileges. What of the citizen that receives a search and arrest warrant? They must be accorded the same privileges. Giving suspects to have time to put their property in order.. Interesting scenario to observe in how it will play out. Corporations will have greater rights than the mere individual citizen… Hmmm

LOL all you want is the truth? LOL You can’t handle the truth.
U.S. Budget Deficit Shrinks Far Faster Than Expected No brainer here. Republicans destroyed economy Obama repairs it.
The Congressional Budget Office said the 2013 fiscal deficit would fall to about $642 billion, or 4 percent of G.D.P., about $200 billion less than it estimated just three months ago.
WASHINGTON — Since the recession ended four years ago, the federal budget deficit has topped $1 trillion every year. But now the government’s annual deficit is shrinking far faster than anyone in Washington expected, and perhaps even faster than many economists think is advisable for the health of the economy.
The agency forecast that the deficit, which topped 10 percent of gross domestic product in 2009, could shrink to as little as 2.1 percent of gross domestic product by 2015 — a level that most analysts say would be easily sustainable over the long run — before beginning to climb gradually through the rest of the decade.
"Revenues have been strong as the economy has outperformed a bit," said Joel Prakken, a founder of Macroeconomic Advisers, a forecasting firm based in St. Louis.
Over all, the figures demonstrate how the economic recovery has begun to refill the government’s coffers. At the same time, Washington, despite its republican political paralysis.
Republicans say perhaps too successful. Given that the economy continues to perform well below its potential and that unemployment has so far failed to fall below 7.5 percent, many economists are cautioning that the deficit is coming down too fast, too soon.
“It’s good news for the budget deficit and bad news for the jobs deficit,” said Jared Bernstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.{R}
“I’m more worried about the latter.” OOOHHH scary..
Now Obama is showing his democratic colors of success in financials. With the government running a hefty $113 billion surplus in the tax payment month of April, according to the Treasury, analysts now do not expect the country to run out of room under its debt ceiling.
The $200 billion reduction to the estimated deficit comes not from the $85 billion in mandatory cuts known as sequestration, nor from the package of tax increases that Congress passed this winter to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. The office had already incorporated those policy changes in its February forecast.
Republicans want Congress to agree for this year to serving as a partial brake on the recovery, cutting government jobs and preventing growth from accelerating to a more robust pace, many economists have warned. The International Monetary Fund has called the country’s pace of deficit reduction “overly strong,” arguing that Washington should delay some of its budget cuts while adopting a longer-term strategy to hold down future deficits.{R} Typical, small minds for small growth..
CBO is revising its estimates for the current year, the budget office also cut its projections of the 10-year cumulative deficit by $618 billion. Those longer-term adjustments are mostly a result of smaller projected outlays for the entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, as well as smaller interest payments on the debt. The C.B.O. has quietly erased hundreds of billions of dollars in projected government health spending over the last few years.
It did so again on Tuesday. In February, the budget office projected that the United States would spend about $8.1 trillion on Medicare and $4.4 trillion on Medicaid over the next 10 fiscal years. It now projects it will spend $7.9 trillion on Medicare and $4.3 trillion on Medicaid. Republicans “Chicken Little” is dying. Serving red herrings will return to the menu for their herd.
