Trying to make any sense out of this administration's policies is an exercise in futility.
Unless you factor in the probability that the Democrats intend to make the government collapse, which is right out of Saul Alinsky's book "Rules for Radicals".
If the government collapses, this is exactly what the Democrats want. Then, they can use the situation they created as justification for instituting their fascist state system.
When you're dealing with Democrats, you're dealing with the exact same type of people that surrounded Hitler and Stalin.

Well, that brings us back to a question nobody in the world has been able to answer:
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
... got an answer to this?
It has been answered.

John that's not true. Most of my friends are hunters and many of them and myself also have concealed weapons permits. Some of these gun owners believe as you do that no gun should be banned because they buy into the phony slippery-slope argument. There are also many gun owners like myself that are embarrassed that the NRA has portrayed us all as supporters of semi-automatic assault type guns. There has to be a line drawn somewhere that limits what weapons are available to ANY person that wants one.

I know you're about as ignorant of the role the Constitution plays in the authority structure of the government of the United States as Obama is, so I'll help you. Here's a key point that cannot be violated:
All laws are subordinate to the Constitution.
Perhaps you need someone to help you define the English word "all". After all, we all know Democrats have a problem defining words in the English language, like the word "is".
Let's go over some facts:
The Patriot Act is not part of the Constitution.
Therefore, it is subordinate to the Constitution.
Because the Patriot Act is subordinate to the Constitution, then it is impossible for the Patriot Act to supersede the Constitution.
Now, repeat after me:
"All laws are subordinate to the Constitution"
... in a Constitutional Republic like the United States, that is.
In a fascist dictatorship, this isn't true.
So, judging from what you wrote, you are under the impression that we live in a country governed by a fascist dictatorship, right?
DUDE, THE GENIE IS OUT OF THE BOTTLE AND IT'S BARBARA EDEN AGAIN, AND SHE IS HAWT!(MY GOD, HOW MUCH SPERM DID I SPILL OVER THAT WOMAN... MAYBE IT WAS THE "MASTER" THING?) AFTER A COUPLE OF HUNDRED YEARS THE "PEOPLE" ARE BEGINNING TO NOTICE THAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS DON'T LOOK LIKE THEM. THIS CONSTITUTION OF YOURS - AND IT IS YOURS - IS GOING TO BE SCRAPPED AS IT SHOULD BE. IT WILL BECOME AN INTERESTING EXHIBIT AT THE BACK OF THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS IN PUERTO RICO. WYOMING WILL RETURN TO IT'S RIGHTFUL PLACE AS A DESERTED WASTELAND AND THE COASTS - FOR HOWEVER LONG THEY LAST - WILL CONTROL THE NATION. IT'S COMING AND NOTHING YOU CAN DO WILL STOP IT. FURTHERMORE, THANKS TO YOUR INCESSANT CHATTER ABOUT REPRODUCTION AND ABORTION, YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO HAND OVER ALL YOUR GUNS, EVEN THE ONE YOU KEEP IN YOUR MOTORCYCLE BOOT.

SOMEBODY FAMILIAR WITH THE WHORES DOWN THERE...
Kindly explain how the Republicans turned over to the Democrats in January, 2007, an annual deficit of 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollars. Then, explain to us what the Democrats did to that 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit since January, 2007?
Did you say increase it by ONE THOUSAND PERCENT?

Keep in mind Rev. Wright, his mentor, said it's all whitey's fault for 20 years, so it's really no wonder, is it? Payback time, I mean?

And let's not forget his Marxist friends in college and his other mentor, Frank Marshall.

The reduction of a tax dedicated to a failing Social Security program never made any sense, unless the Social Security were also reduced.
It never made any sense to you & the majority of the right whiners because you are uninformed.

The President wanted to get a tax break to working Americans. The problem being how do you do it.

The payroll tax cut was just a mechanism to accomplish this tax break to working Americans.

The money lost to SS in this tax break was replaced by funds from the general fund.

Social Security did not lose funding.

Try to keep up

What's the answer, dufus?

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

The new taxes will only generate an additional 600 billion dollars over 10 years. The government has an annual deficit of 1.3 trillion dollars, with no plan to reduce it.

So, given these irrefutable facts, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Nobody in the world has answered that question yet.

Unfortunately for the rest of us, you don't get to decide which laws are Constitutional.

That is up to the court system.

Let's hope he feels the pressure from every single American who voted for him.

Raising the debt ceiling yet again, renigging on his promise of a balanced approach (raising taxes AND cutting the budget), the risk of the nation's credit rating being lowered again and the outcry from the military if they get the shaft while reforms in entitlement programs are completely ignored should make all Americans light a fire under his feet.

Especially now since they're going to see even less in their paychecks.

OK, LET'S LOOK AT THIS FROM AN OBJECTIVE POINT OF VIEW. FIRSTLY, YOU'RE NOT WHITE, ARE YOU? I MEAN UNLESS YOU'RE A POLAR BEAR OR SOMETHING? SO SHOULDN'T IT READ, "PROUD2BPINK?" OR, "PROUD2BGRAY?"

SECONDLY, LET'S FACE IT, IF YOU WERE SO PROUD OF IT YOU'D NEVER GO OUT IN THE SUN, WEAR MAKE-UP (I'VE SEEN YOU WITH THE BLUSHER...) MOW THE GRASS IN BERMUDAS WITH NO SHIRT ON (I'VE SEEN YOU DO THAT TOO AND YOU NEED TO STOP!) SO, I'M DUBIOUS ABOUT THE PROUD PART TOO.

We had a balanced Budget & on the path to paying down the debt.

Then a guy ran for President on the idea that we should not pay down the debt but rather give the money back to the taxpayers.

Dipsticks like you elected him President & the plan to pay down the debt went to Hell in a hand basket.

Did it ever occur to you that those wars cost something? That Bush didn't put them on the books? You rightwingers are so easily duped it's incredible.
His company isn't floundering to begin with and doesn't need help trying to salvage it with an investors' own money.
