Try again, youíre dead wrong.
Some of the debt was generated under Clinton as well. The biggest expense is health and human services. Another large portion of the budget goes to servicing the debt. In simple terms, interest.
Be pissed off, itís good for you. Itíll cause you to dig deeper.

If your kids starve and live in a run down unsafe house so you can buy more guns then YES YES YES YES YES it is a waste and evil and wrong. Now if your kids have ALL they need good food and good healthcare and live in a safe house and you buy alot of guns that is just fine and no problem....
I have provided very well for my family over the years. Iíve always worked hard. From the time I entered school, got my first job and up until this day I still work hard. Iíve never accepted a dime of entitlement from the government. In my early 20ís the company I was working for went bankrupt. I didnít take unemployment, I lived off my savings. Iíve never collected unemployment, food stamps or any type of government aid. I have no intention of collecting Social Security either. Iíll find a way to work until Iím dead. Donít presume to tell me about responsibility.

If someone chooses another path theyíre exercising their right to free choice. If they choose to spend what little money they have frivolously itís not evil. Itís simply a bad choice.

If a person makes a FREE choice that hurst others then he is attacking someone elses FREEDOM. A parent who spends most of families money on guns and hunting and such should have kids taken from him he is hurting them.
Now you want the government to decide how much money someone should be allowed to spend on guns and hunting?

If you make enough to care for your family and still have alot of toys that is GREAT. If you have the toys and your family starves and lives in squalor IT IS EVIL.

Republican slanted? Evidence of that? Did you bother to read this portion?

ďThe bar chart comes directly from the Monthly Treasury Statement published by the U. S. Treasury Department. <<< Click on the chart for more info.Ē

You can click and verify every number on the chart directly from the treasury. Are you afraid of facts?

As usual, youíre dishonest.

Heh...you think gun dealers don't encourage this crap? I've seen ads where they've said this very thing, that Obama was going to 'take your guns, better buy now!'

Gun nuts aren't too smart, though, they're easy prey for this kind of scam.:)

ROFLMFAO!!! You're hysterical dude! That is compiled data from Department of Treasury in a singular format. So you claim that the Dept of Treasury is lying where the money has been spent?
http://www.treasury.gov/press-center/press-re...

BTW, HHS is "ENTITLEMENT" spending. That is billions greater than Defense spending.

2012 Spending (billions)
Defense:$650.9
Entitlement:$848.1

So tell us, which number is greater? HHS or DoD?

If people don't decide things wisely, the government often ends up deciding FOR them. That was the point of Bob Costas' comments on TV the other day, that maybe you don't really NEED all those guns in your house.

I support the 2nd Amendment, BTW, so don't bother with that route.

No not at all. Please try to follow. I am talking about one person one family. This guy spends most of his families income on guns and hunting..His kids are starving his house is unsafe they live like pigs so he can play around...It isnt about guns it is about the kids. I have seen way to many families where the kids suffer so daddy can hunt and fish and go drink beers at his hunt club.. Do you get it?

Had a guy who worked for me few years back. He came hat in hand and begged me for some money. he said his daughter needed some dental work done. I gave not borrowed I agve him the $1000 he said he needed. Found out the next week he had bought a new gun. THAT IS EVIL......Oh and his daughter never got dental work done. I FIRED HIM AS SOON AS FOUND OUT.

If true, you should be very angry and more focused on the entitlement spending. As a business owner what are your thoughts on Obama care? How will you feel about it when you exceed 49 employees? Tell me about how you feel about all the government regulation nickel and diming your business. Donít you feel over taxed as a business owner?

I know a lot of small business owners. Not one that I know supports Obama. Not one that I know would support a Democrat. Are you just a poser?

I am lucky in one respect, I donít pay state income tax. In Florida we have it made, soak the tourists and the full time residents donít pay income tax. I like it. Snowbird should pay a price. Theyíre arrogant, rude and generally a pain in the ass. I just love when they begin saying ďUp north we donít do it that wayĒ.

You donít support the second amendment if you agree with Bob Costas. That fool is now back peddling. His statements may end up being a career changer.
