our debt issues: no sh%t!

People are so hectic and irate about the impending debt issue. I was just reading an article about how the dems are turning on Obama because he's being a wuss or something.

Well NO SHIT right? Not about obama but what people were talking about: the wars of choice that we couldn't afford. Obscene cold-war era offense budget is not a joke it turns out. Except in a negative way. Ouch! Now we have to pay the same or more and receive less benefits as a nation.

How can a country steam on course when just about everyone can see a huge iceberg ahead? Because while the rest of the country watches "Who wants to dance with a millionaire" even the "politically involved" are all watching some tubby pan-banging sensationalist debate gay marriage or teacher unions. That's my guess. I don't think people are stupid per se, just blissfully ignorant.

So I'm going to fire up my vaporizer. And play World Of Tanks. Play me off Johnny!

Cliffs: We can finally and officially start saying I told you so to all the self proclaimed patriots who voted for bush and put cheap chinese stickers of flags on their cars. NOW I'm a patriot


Ps. Before you bring it up, Obama did sign the stimulus bill, as did McCain. Just don't forget how millions of americans sold the country out for six hundred bucks - what a move that was huh? Let's bribe everyone with a month worth of groceries.

Click the 4th one down "who has the most oil reserves" - looks like a good long term investment.


Because at present we get most of our oil from - this surprises most people - ourselves.

i wasn't talking about oil, i was talking about the petro dollar and all of the indirect ways using the USD as a reserve currency for oil benefits the us...

It's sad in principle that we have videos with something called an adult moment in the first place.

Nobody wants to look to the future and force those issues in politics, they only react to the stuff of today. Doing things for the future doesn't score a lot of points with the public i guess. The thing is the future is always very close. MLK has a book called "Why we can't wait" and even though it was about civil rights the same logic really applies everywhere. Putting chores off around the house is a bad idea, and it isn't any better when running a country. Cutting a fat chunk out of our occupation budget would definitely help but we're in very deep - all those soldiers not only need something to do after the war but are also entitled to all kinds of GI and vet benefits. Not exactly swimming in money for all that :hmm:

There was an article I read on yahoo finance about 51% of people dont pay taxes, and the top 1(maybe 5) percent only pay 19% tax. So the entire burden falls on the middle class. It is .

If you make more then 1 million a year, you need an extra 10% tax. Sorry assholes. Most people with a college education dont even make that much in their entire life, and you made it in one year. Congrats, now pay for being lucky/hardworking/smart/great at what you do.

It isn't "fair", but shit, what the fuck is in this world? Kids in africa get AIDS and die everyday without a chance. I think you can pay a bit more for being such a success.

Yes it is fair, this is the greatest country in the world. If it blessed you with the situation to get rich as shit, its your patriotic duty to support to system that allowed you to be in the position you are in.

also, the lower class pays virtually no taxes yet they account for the majority of your local fire, ems and police services. lower class needs to start being responsible for something, although i know that's never going to happen.

Not at all what I am saying. I just found it amusing that you are talking about wasteful budgeting when the legislature is red and has been red for a while now, halting any meaningful progress. 12 years of nothing, yet you want to avoid a topic. Small town cop is small time.

It's like trying to qualify in your MP4-26 with a faulty exhaust. You aren't going to place first, but you strive to put forth your best effort.
