Still don't know the difference between the debt and the deficit dimwit? The debt is the total amount that the government owes. The deficit is the difference between what the government spends and what it takes in as revenue.
The deficit has gone down from $1,413 billion for FY 2009 to $680 billion for FY 2013 and is predicted to drop further to $564 billion in 2016.
We got royally screwed when the GOP controlled both houses of Congress and the White House.

Sherrod was not involved in the Pigford case other than as a landowner who was discriminated against. Breitbart started focusing on the Pigford case after he was caught lying to redirect attention away from himself.
Pigford was a scam. The Breitbart video showed racism on the part of the NAACP and the LSM missed the entire point of the video.

It seems you did as well.

Breitbart used dishonesty to try to destroy a person's career for no purpose other than his own gain.

But being the right whiner you are, you think racism is OK & defend those who fight to keep it alive.

"Bravo": Right-wing media's initial praise for Breitbart's "great work" on Sherrod

Breitbart's allegations against Sherrod quickly unraveled

Atlanta Journal-Constitution: Sherrod says clip "completely misconstrued" her comments. In the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's July 20 article (since updated) on the controversy surrounding Shirley Sherrod's statements at an NAACP banquet, the paper reported that "the tale she told at the banquet happened 24 years ago -- before she got the USDA job -- when she worked with the Georgia field office for the Federation of Southern Cooperative/Land Assistance Fund." The article also reported that, according to Sherrod, the "38-second video posted online Monday by biggovernment.com and reported on by FoxNews.com and the AJC completely misconstrued the message she was trying to convey."

Video producer confirmed that "the full speech is exactly as Sherrod described ... she goes on to explain learning the error of her initial impression." Talking Points Memo reported on July 20 that "The Douglas, Ga., company which filmed the banquet for the local NAACP has refused to release" the video until the national NAACP gives him "permission" to post it. However, Wilkerson told TPM "that the full speech is exactly as Sherrod described, and that she goes on to explain learning the error of her initial impression and helping the farmer keep his farm."

"White farmer" and his wife": Sherrod is a "friend" who "helped us save our farm." Later in the day, Sherrod appeared on CNN Newsroom to discuss the accusations against her. On the show, anchor Tony Harris contacted the wife of the "white farmer" Sherrod had discussed in her appearance at the NAACP banquet. The wife, Eloise Spooner described Sherrod as "a good friend" who "helped us save our farm." In a later CNN interview, the farmer, Roger Spooner, said that Sherrod "did her level best" to help him save his farm and those that are smearing her as a racist "don't know what they're talking about."

NAACP releases full tape vindicating Sherrod. The NAACP released the full video of Sherrod's comments on the evening of July 20. In the video, Sherrod sates that "working with him [the white farmer] made me see that it's really about those who have versus those who don't." She went on to state that "they could be black, and they could be white, they could be Hispanic. And it made me realize then that I needed to work to help poor people -- those who don't have access the way others have."

As the story dissolved, media across the board rejected Breitbart's race-baiting lies. Media figures and outlets from across the board have subsequently rejected Breitbart's false claims against Sherrod. For example, National Review Online's Jonah Goldberg has said that Sherrod "owed apologies from pretty much everyone, including my good friend Andrew Breitbart," CNN's Anderson Cooper said Sherrod's "comments she made were taken out of context." with Sherrod smeared by allegations of racism, lost her job, and is now being redeemed by the truth, it seems, the whole truth," and Fox News' Glenn Beck said Sherrod "deserves her job back."

Boehner, Fox’s Shep Smith, And Other Journalists Slam Breitbart For His Race-Baiting Smear Campaign

Fox New anchor Shep Smith — whose network breathlessly promoted the smear campaign — slammed Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com as “widely discredited,” and blasted the White House for acting on its video. Smith even called out his own employer, saying,“The video, taken completely out of context, it ran all over the Internet, and television, including on this network:”

Recent weeks have seen an increase in threatening rhetoric and a series of North Korean rocket and ballistic missile launches considered acts of protest by Pyongyang against annual ongoing springtime military exercises by Seoul and Washington. The North calls the South Korea-U.S. drills a rehearsal for invasion; the allies say they're routine and defensive.

"The boneheads appear to have completely forgotten the fact that Yeonpyeong island was smashed by our military's bolt of lightning a few years ago," a North Korean military official, Yun Jong Bum, said Monday, according to the North's official Korean Central News Agency.

"The Fed knows that the U.S. economy is not recovering," Schiff said. "It simply is being kept from collapse by artificially low interest rates and quantitative easing. As that support goes, the economy will implode."
"The crisis is imminent," Schiff said. "I don't think Obama is going to finish his second term without the bottom dropping out. And stock market investors are oblivious to the problems."
Is this just too hard to imagine or talk about?
What if Schiff is right? I wasn't sure we were going to survive the first four years. But Obamacare is here, the economy is not recovering nearly fast enough, the deficit is off the charts, and the other shoe has to drop eventually.
Hopefully, not until the GOP has the reins again in Congress. But what if the loons on here still manage to represent the wrong people being voted back in? It didn't seem possible in 2012. But look what happened.
Yeah well Peter Schiff is a Ron Paul styled libertarian who admittedly was right on the collapse of the housing market but is wrong on things like the minimum wage and cutting spending as a way to stimulate the economy. His spiel is generally self serving to attract customers to his business.
Once again liar, the deficit is not off the charts, it's actually dropping and the CBO reports that the ACA will cause it to drop more.

----------
“Humility is the most difficult of all virtues to achieve; nothing dies harder than the desire to think well of oneself.”
-T. S. Eliot

Even though he was a billionaire many times over, you wouldn’t know it if you met him on the street. He drove [an] old pick-up truck, and he lived in a humble house in Bentonville that almost anyone with a job could have afforded (Michael Bergdahl, What I Learned From Sam Walton,(New York: John Wiley & Sons, 2004) p. 114) and he purchased many of his clothes from Wal-Mart. Bernard Marcus, chairman and co-founder of Home Depot, recalled going out to lunch with Walton after a meeting in Bentonville: I hopped into Sam’s red pickup truck. No air-conditioning. Seats stained by coffee. And by the time I got to the restaurant, my shirt was soaked through and through. And that was Sam Walton; no airs [attempts to impress others], no pomposity [arrogance](Daniel Gross, Forbes Greatest Business Stories of All Times,(New York: John Wiley & Sons, 1996) p. 274).

An executive who joined Wal-Mart from Frito-Lay shared this story:“After I had joined the company, I still remember seeing Sam walk into the Home Office bathroom the same bathroom used by everybody else ... multi-billionaire Sam Walton didn’t have a private executive washroom. He used the same facilities that everybody else used.

Our friends at Young Cons posted a funny article called 6 Signs You’re a Liberal Out of Touch With Reality. Here are the six:

1. You think that George W. Bush caused the recent recession

2. You get your news from Jon Stewart

3. You watch MSNBC

4. You’re still concerned about institutional racism

5. You think that raising taxes improves the economy

6. You’re surprised that regulations on insurance companies are causing them to raise their premiums

For the whole article, including commentary on each, check out YoungCons.

Ex-Bush Strategist Rips GOPers ‘Kissing’ Billionaire’s Ring

Matthew Dowd, the former George W. Bush strategist, chided Republican presidential contenders for "kissing the ring" of super donor Sheldon Adelson at a Las Vegas confab the billionaire casino magnate hosted this weekend.

“I think it’s ridiculous that these candidates for president are trumping out to Las Vegas to kiss the ring of a billionaire casino owner, and they think that’s somehow going help them get elected president,” Dowd said Sunday on ABC's "This Week."

“Well the money is going to help them, isn't it?” host George Stephanopoulos cut in.

“I think money matters so much less than your own capacity as a candidate,” Dowd said.“What is your message, what is your vision for the country. They'd much better off spending time back where they live instead of flying to Las Vegas, and figuring out what's their message and what's their vision and how to convey that to the American public.”

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) were among the high-profile speakers Saturday at the Republican Jewish Coalition's annual gathering. Christie later apologized to Adelson after his use of the phrase "occupied territories" to refer to the West Bank rankled the crowd. He reportedly told Adelson he "misspoke" and emphasized that his remarks were not meant to be a policy statement.

The Washington Post also reported that Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor and brother of the former president, was honored by Adelson on Thursday and met with the casino owner in private, although the two did not discuss a 2016 campaign.

Face it Dave, conditions, for you, will NEVER be satisfactory. There will ALWAYS be someone holding you back. Your defeatism permeates every level of liberal society, all the way to the White House. Obama isn't responsible for anything either. He blames Bush, Republicans, capitalism, Congress, global warming, insurance companies, Wall Street, oil companies, the Constitution, etc., etc. I've never heard anyone make more excuses and whine as much as he does. Except maybe you. LOL!
So you are now claiming blacks were not held back by the racism & segregation?

Wow, you go all out to defend your racist comments.

No one is holding me back. I had good opportunities & I took advantage of them. Opportunities a black man would not have had growing up at the same time I did.

There is no defeatism here at all, just explanation.

When it comes to Obamas, climate change, etc, I don't make excuses.

I point out the truth.
