  1. I wonder if they're going to make a rap video mocking the taxpayer like the GSA did?

  2. They think they deserve everything they are spending at the taxpayer's expense.

  3. The people deserve the government they elect. Here's an idea, why not reelect Barack Obama?

  4. It's very simple:

    They do it, because they CAN.

    Power once held inevitably becomes abusive of the perquisites and privileges that go along with it.

    Been that way since Day One.

    "That judges of important causes should hold office for life is not a good thing, for the mind grows old as well as the body."

    ~ Aristotle (382- 322 B. C.)

    AYUP!

  5. Everyone loves waffling about sacrifices when it's others who are doing the sacrificing.

  6. WAFFLE

    intransitive verb

    1: equivocate, vacillate, wax inconsistent or deliberately vague (waffled on the important issues); also (regrettably) : yo-yo, flip-flop

    2: to talk or write foolishly: blather, loose pointless chatter

    Is that really what you meant, Right Wing Theorat?

  7. and Americas favorite TV family is taking another holiday vacation during Memorial Day.....awesome...

    Think about it this must be a sitcom right...

    ..The Obamas go to the Whitehouse..

    The script practically writes itself. The dad is like Homer in that he thinks he knows what he is talking about but he doesnot so we laugh everytime he says like....I am going to cut the deficit in half....Barack is thinner and hipper than Homer so this is great....and Marge was sort of boring I mean a stay at home mom no what we have is a jet setting globe trotting mother who with the help of dozens of servants and tutors is raising a family...and the good news they are not paying for anything...you are. In fact the family has gotten richer while "serving the public"

    If this was not are reality that would be damn funny.....

  8. I think Waffle works in that the concept is folks are for cuts to other programs in a general sense but once someone raises an objection because "children will strave" or "old people will be out in the street" then the logic of reductions to save the system fails and people waffle saying things like "its only a 100 billion more in a 2 trillion budget" or "cutting this will not balance the budget". or "you just want to give rich people tax breaks" or "you are putting the burden on to the middle class"

    Ok the last one is true but not the way it is couched in the media. The middle class does pay most of the taxes. I know the charts say otherwise and you are right the actual cutting of the checks comes from rich working people. and there in is the problem, we pay are taxes through payroll deduction and most of the burden has been shifted to the rich who employ people so we the working people have little connection to the process except that I guarantee you that rich people are smart folks who will follow their own interest and any tax hike will trickle down....

  11. Blogginator,
    It seems that Obama will be golfing on Memorial Day and letting Joe Biden do ceremonies for honoring our troops. Not a surprise, of course.

    Obama is coming up his 100th round of golf while serving as POTUS. I guess that he wants to set some kind of world's record in that regard.

  12. Obama:

    The Golfer-in-Chief

    The Vacationer-in-Chief

    The above does not endear him to most Americans. Of course, he doesn't give a damn.

    "It's all about me, me, me!" and "It's my turn now" and "Get it while you can" -- those are his life's motto.

  13. Blogginator,
    And the bondage that you mentioned will extend to generation after generation.

    This is horrible to say: I don't regret having no children.

  14. When you read Genesis--it chills your bones to think a people could trade their freedom and their children's freedom for food.....

    and you think that will never happen here in America....

    I think I have admitted this before but I tell you honestly I cry during the playing of the National Athem.... I fear not just for my own children but this great Nation. I fear that we are trading our freedom for temporary pleasures much like Pleasure Island in Pinocchio and then the boys were turned into donkeys....odd that the democrats are the party of the donkey (a beast of burden serving the whip)...
