Who knows what the truth is? There are only two facts in life. Bush was the worst president ever, and Obama by virtue of not being Bush can say anything that happens bad is in fact Bush's fault and simple minded people will believe him.:)

Here is where we stand as a country right now. It cost $10 billion a day to operate the federal government. If we taxed everyone making 250k and above at 100 percent, took 100 percent of all profits from all fortune 500 companies, took 100 percent of all assets from the billionaires ( there are about 400 billionaires in the US) we could operate the federal government for 8 months without creating more debt.
Raising taxes ain't going to help. There is going to be some serious cuts coming. The government is trying not to make the necessary cuts for fear of revolutions. The cuts are coming and anyone depending on anything from government are going to suffer. Get ready because there is nothing that can be done to stop it. It's time to hit the reset button.

This country is screwed; it is a waste of breath and vexation to concern one's self with minutia akin to rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

Why do you worry about debt which you will never pay?

LMAO...that's funny you say that Dufus since you are a "welfare rider." You got yourself a nice little SS disability check and now you sit back and criticize others who do the same. Your stupidity is eclipsed only by your hypocrisy.

You, grumpy, dingo, just don't get it. Your just like the fools in washington. Both parties have done this to the country and it doesn't matter who's to blame or who we elect. It has already gone too far. If we did not make any more debt at all and started pay 10 million every day towards the deficit, it would take 3800 years to get us paid out. If we paid 1 dollar every second towards the deficit, it would take 440,000 years to pay us out.

We are a long long way past broke. It CANNOT be fixed. Everything needs to come to a stop. The sooner the better. To not realize the seriousness of our situation is foolishness. We are going to be going back to a barter system. The world economy is crumbling and there is no stopping it.
I would suggest that everyone read "Patriot" by James Wesley Rawles. James is a retired military intelligence officer and also runs a survival forum.
The book Patriot follows the course that we are living today. It is a fictional story based on true events around the world. It is also a shopping list of items that a group will need. It is a very educational book and I would be very pleased if EVERYONE would read it. The time of blaming and pointing fingers is over. We need to pull together. We are going to need each other.
