Today's Recommended Reading

See Debt Jumped $54.1 Billion in 8 Days Preceding Obama-Boehner Deal to Cut $38.5 Billion for Rest of Year. Grim. In my view, neither the Republicans nor the Democrats should be bragging about the recent budget compromise.


  1. It turns out, even what they did pass was part smoke and mirrors. And Obama gets credit for a win from the masses. Go figure.

  2. Boehner is laughable, parading about like he's won a victory.

    We actual conservatives want real, deep cuts, not a dog and pony show and some crying.

    The leftists could care less about $38 billion, because they know they will outspend that in a heartbeat, yet now they can winch about 'those evil republicans.'


  3. If we ran our homes like this we would be bankrupt in a heart beat. We wouldn't be making any excuses.

  4. Invectives and personal attacks? Continued? You have more patience than I do. I block them after the first personal attack anymore and delete their comment. My blog is not a democracy.

    As for this supposedly wonderful 38 billion drop in the bucket, I agree it's pathetic and I bet most Americans do also. I want to see them REDUCE the debt ceiling down to no more than $12 trillion and REDUCE our yearly spending by $500 billion. Easy enough to do if we stop handing out welfare to other nations.

    But... as long as Obama holds the reins, it's all just wishful thinking.

  5. Huh. Not anonymous, just me. My comment was accepted before I could enter in my moniker.???

  6. You are right AOW. Neither party has done anything to be proud of or to truly help the American people. From what I am reading we have some grim days ahead of us as further news comes to the fore regarding cuts in many programs with the taxes on the American citizenry expected to skyrocket. You can always count on the dems to raise taxes though-and this one thing I will not blame the Republicans for. Grim does not describe half this sick and pathetic budget.

  7. Nothing to be proud of is correct. But whether it was $38B or $100B, it was always going to be a drop in the ocean of debt. There are other battles coming.

  8. Dem or Repub, Coke or Pepsi.

    Maybe after this latest round of Kabuki people will figure it out.

  9. Depressing.

    Boehner needs a nad transplant.

  10. and Obama's headlines on Yahoo have been OBAMA PUTS EVERYTHING ON THE TABLE TO REDUCE DEFICITS. ..ya, everything but what could HELP.
    what a JOKE the media's love of Obama is.

  11. Black Sheep,
    I have a little bit of patience with trolls. But not much.

    Blogger does accept anonymous comments but not with consistency.

  12. My understanding is that the Republicans are showing an unexpected willingness and ability to start fighting for entitlement reform. Hopefully what i read was right and it's going to really suck to be a liberal for the coming future.
