    While Obama certainly hasn't helped the deficit spending, the truth is it's been going on for a LONG time. Most of the long-term obligations that we need to pay are much older than 3 years old. Many date back to HW Bush, and I wouldn't be surprised if some dated back to Reagan or even Carter.

    The time has come to pay the piper, yes. But putting all the blame on Obama is just right wing spin.

If the Democrats want to block that change, then we might need to shut down the government. Hopefully, he will gain some type of common sense before the actual day of reckoning.

    I don't recall anyone putting all the blame on Obama for the US debt but he has spent more tax payer contributions than the first 40 presidents combined. Therefore, he gets most of the attention for it. So the liberal spin is blaming conservatives for putting all the blame on Obama and "poor mouthing" about how he gets all the blame. So how's this, he only gets what he deserves. You do the math.
    What, no race card this time? :

    Nobody mentions something that is irrelevant and you're disappointed because it means you can't play the victim. Typical right-wing victimhood. Rush has you trained well.

    what exactly are you suggesting?

    a violent revolution to bring down the popularly elected government of the United States?

    reversing the Civil Rights Act? The Voting Rights Act? Brown Vs. Topeka?

    There you go again. More silly questions based on your favorite exercise. I am not for any of the things you have suggested. You are a dolt to even think of such things. Next time, just ask what I mean if you don't know. I will gladly answer. Okay?

    I am against the nanny state. I am against Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, welfare, much of EPA, OSHA, Dept of Education, etc., etc., etc. I am against the tyrants of Washington telling me what size car I should buy. I am against the tryrants of Washington telling me what lightbulbs I must buy. I am against the tyrants of Washington lying to me Americans that they won't have to change their current health insurance coverage and then set it up so that companies will stop offering insurance. I am against the tryants of Washington who say that company A, State A, or union A can be exempted from the new healthcare regs when others cannot. I am against the tyrants of Washington who spend money like it was milk and then want to tax us more because of their irresponsibility. I am against the tyrants of Washington who....

    Well, you get the point. What am I for? Personal responsibility, frugality, self-discipline, honesty, self-sufficiency, and the other positive virtues. I am for limited government and freedom. I am for liberals keeping their grimy mitts out of people's pockets. I am for true charity and compassion and not phony liberal compassion.

    Now, the next time you question me about what I mean, leave your racist crap in your own bigoted mind. My mind and my heart are not filled with racism and never have been. Got it? Thanks. Now, have a nice evening.

    what about the govt. telling you, you MUST hire a black person, or a Jew, or a woman, even if you don't like such people?

    what about the govt. telling you, you MUST let blacks, Jews, and women live in your apartment building?

    what about the govt. telling you, you MUST let blacks, Jews, and women attend your college?

    what about the govt. telling you, you MUST let blacks, Jews, and women shop at your store?

    You are totally incorrigible. I have hired blacks and not because the government has told me to do so. If I owned an apartment building in the 1950s or today, I would have allowed any race or ethnic background to live there. I attended a high school in 1963 that had a black girl who was homecoming queen. I also went to college with blacks in 1964. If I had owned a store in the 1950s or today, I would not have had a problem having anyone shop in my store.

    That has always been the right thing to do as far as I am concerned. So, as for the government telling me that I should do the above things, it doesn't impact me in the slightest. Now, go take your little bigoted mind and find someone else to play your bigoted game with.
