Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.

I guess it all depends on what layer of initial human learning each individual rises to during early development, our stimuli vs. non stimuli make us what we are....besides we are all a bit daffy, the more intelligent realize this.

Assuming you are correct, your total only comes to $2.85 trillion over 10 yrs. Let me say it clearly one more time. AMERICA RACKS UP $1.4 TRILLION IN DEBT WE CANT PAY FOR EVERY SINGLE YEAR!!! That still leaves $11.85 TRILLION of new unpaid debt at the end of 10 yrs. With the $16 trillion we already owe, that brings the total debt load for America to $27.85 trillion in 10 years. It's a smoke screen and unacceptable. Surly you can see this. The democrats are not serious about debt reduction, they only want more spending. They throw out numbers like $2.85 trillion to get people like you to actually believe that such a large number would do some good and should get your support. The problem is that people like yourself actually fall for it without doing the math for yourself. It's exactly why we are in such trouble. People like you far outnumber people like me. That is why Obama won this last election. The rest of your post was more republican bashing and a waste of space.
ok so let me do some simple math for you ... 1.6t plus 800b plus 50b plus 400b = 2.85T so you got that part right but did you add the rate at which the deficit has already been reduced and will reduce over that amount? that would be right at another 1T over 10 years which would be right at 4t dollars or 3.85T which is right at what we need...and the debt... let me make it clear is racked up every year due to the current process.. so therefore.. you cannot keep adding that previous debt to the total.. if that debt is innactive... make sense? because it should... so with that being said i just did the math .. and with those numbers... that seems like a very credible proposal .. republicans on the other hand have yet to put a credible proposal on the table ... or even counter the current proposal.... so let me say to you again do not criticize a plan you know nothing about.. do not criticize a sitiuation where you are only focused on thinking about how it cannnot succeed instead of how can this work... and if your gonnna criticize the way i operate and i am a democrat then i will not stoop so low as to bring you into the equation until you call me an inappropriate name .. but what i will tell you is that i don't know who you are listening too about world and local politics.. but it seems to me that someone doesn't know what they are talking about... obama won this last election because he wasn't caught lieing every single week he was running for office... obama's proposal's were out there just as much if not more than what the republicans and mitt romney were proposing.... for at least a full credible year... numbers and more numbers... and even more numbers.. were proposed crunched and gone over and over and over... 98 percent of EVERYTHING republicans said was a PROVEN lie... except for bengahzi where the only thing they got right is that 4 americans lost their lives....there were clear issues on entitlement's, budget cuts, wars, jobs, energy, taxes, and womens rights... and 2 clearly different ways to go incase you did not watch or pay attention during the primaries and election... and a vast majority of united states citizens chose not to be intemidated by fear mongoring and lies... they saw the truth.. or looked it up .. same thing you should do before your criticizm hit's a point where it's no longer critical but more redundent and ignorant... so don't shut off the world with ignorance but rather open your eyes with truth.

Don't get me wrong, I don't see anything from the right that gives me any confidence either but at least their talking points are about personal freedom and accountability and not blame and unchecked redistribution.

Last time. We will use these numbes this time.$4 trillion over 10 years is only $400 billion per year, not $4 trillion every single year. We have a $1.4 trillion dollar deficit every year which is, using your new numbers, still $1 trillion short each and every year. So we are all on the same page,$1 trillion X 10 years=$10 trillion in the red. Combine that with the $16 trillion we already owe and you come up with a disturbing $26 trillion dollars in total debt. That's $157,575.75 of debt that every single one of the 165 million working Americans in this country will owe. This is all assuming that our government will freeze spending at our current irresponsible levels. We both know that won't happen. Please tell me you understand this time. I'm trying to be patient. To your credit, you are the first liberal to take my challenge of defending the left's position. I give you props for that.

Funny about that redistribution thingy, seems it was in place for many, many years back when we were in a much better economic condition than now. It would seem to me that the trickle down policies espoused by Republicans combined with the Bush tax giveaway to the rich did indeed help a segment of our society, the extremely rich. It is quite clear who Republicans work for and it ain't the middle class, if you dispute that fact, then you lose all credibility in my eyes. It's the House of Lords vs. the House of Commons American style.

Personal Freedoms..what a crock..hell you people want to regulate our sex life. That alone disqualifies any further consideration of Republicans in my book...and that doesn't begin to describe all the archaic thinking your side would enthusiastically force upon millions of it's citizens if given the unregulated power to do so.

Accountability, the Republican by-word, how ridicules of you people to assume you personally own accountability.

BTW, I do find a good deal of your message here insightful...minus the right-wing bullshit.

Just because it was in place doesn't mean that I agree with it because I don't under any circumstances except when a person feels led to give of their on free will. The thing you miss about the tax cuts for the rich is that everyone else got taxes cut as well and the rich still paid the vast majority of taxes in this country. Besides, no tax cut a wealthy person got prohibited any other American from being successful. Success is a marathon and not a sprint. It takes a long time especially if you start off having nothing. No one is trying to control anyone elses sex life. If someone wants to have sex every day of their life then they are free to do so. If they want protection they are free to go and purchase as much as they like or go to a free clinic and get it for free. If one can't afford protection then that brings us back to personal responsibility and making the most of ones life. You will have a far greater percentage of abusers with handouts than tax cuts for the rich.

"greater percentage of abusers with handouts than tax cuts for the rich"


So, are you saying the rich have a a higher moral compass than a person who qualifies for public assistance?

What most of you fail to recognize, personal responsibility is a integral part of most Democrats lives, just as it to most Republicans. We pay our bills, we educate our children, we pay our taxes, we are faithful to the same God and to our families. Yet your side makes a concerted effort to demonize any opposing philosophy in order to sway those unable (or unwilling) to grasp the whole picture. I'm not blaming your side for that, afterall it is in the best interests of your Party to cater to the people who pay for their political aspirations.

Concerning Welfare, it is seemingly the policy of your Party to confuse Social Security and Medicare with Medicaid and the chronically unemployed, or for that matter any give-away program. BTW, many Medicaid recipients voted Republican, and that's a fact.

Do you not think that most Democrats realize the abuse? Do you not think that most Democrats realize that drastic change needs to be made?

It's my way or the Highway with your leadership...resulting in gridlock, a gridlock that will hound this Country until cooler heads are prevail.

No, I am saying that half (165 million) of American's recieve government assistance of some sort and to some degree. The "rich" (income above $250K) in this country constitute only 2%(6.2 million). It stands to reason that there is a better chance of abuse if you have 165 million different personalities in a program than 6.2 million different personalities getting tax breaks. Why would you think I thought this a moral issue? Just curious.

Even worse, if they have any debts, they have only prolonged paying them down and have paid more in interest over the term of their loan than is necessary. Just one example of how the poor get poorer.

TEN:
1. One to deny that a light bulb needs to be changed,
2. One to attack the patriotism of anyone who says the light bulb needs to be changed,
3. One to blame Clinton for burning out the light bulb,
4. One to tell the nations of the world that they are either for changing the light bulb or for eternal darkness,
5. One to give a billion dollar no-bid contract to Halliburton for the new light bulb,
6. One to arrange a photograph of Bush, dressed as a janitor, standing on a step ladder under the banner "Bulb Accomplished,"
7. One administration insider to resign and in detail reveal how Bush was literally "in the dark" the whole time,
8. One to viciously smear #7,
9. One surrogate to campaign on TV and at rallies on how John McCain has had a strong light bulb-changing policy all along,
10. And finally, one to confuse Americans about the difference between screwing a light bulb and screwing the country.
And after all is said and done, no one will notice that they never actually managed to change the light bulb
Your light bulb joke was kinda funny but you do realize you could replace Republicans with Democrats and it would still be funny and just as stupid. I did notice that this cut and paste from you had proper grammar and punctuation. You should cut and paste more often, while Barney should do it less. Your mind is still a terrible thing to waste. Its too late for Barney, his mind is like a steel trap.
