    For those of you with the stomach for the truth you could help. Is it the truth you seek? Or is it something else?
    Four paragraphs and it boils down to this “Was she a socialist too? I believe she was." How does your believing that his mother was a socialist make the sons “core beliefs “ socialistic?

    Whatever credibility you had left is quickly fading with all of this conspiracy **** your throwing up.

    Pretty soon you will be so much background noise, relegated to DP Tinnitus, like another poster in this thread that spams with irrelevant links that no one reads or responds to.

    The federal government's financial condition deteriorated rapidly last year, far beyond the $1.5 trillion in new debt taken on to finance the budget deficit, a USA TODAY analysis shows.

    The government added $5.3 trillion in new financial obligations in 2010, largely for retirement programs such as Medicare and Social Security. That brings to a record $61.6 trillion the total of financial promises not paid for.

    Medicare alone took on $1.8 trillion in new liabilities, more than the record deficit prompting heated debate between Congress and the White House over lifting the debt ceiling.

    if something isn't done NOW to fundamentally restructure our budgets, then our big 3 federal entitlements (as well as state pensions) will simply disappear as we have come to know them

    because there's just not enough money on the planet to make good all that 61.6T

    policy trumps personalities

    and their pimps

    leadership, anyone?

    OBAMA WILL SPEND LESS--WAY LESS--THAN BUSH
    Over time, and through the hate-filled chatter of the blogs and the talk shows, we have all acquired the sense that our two political parties have fundamentally different views of government. Democrats favor big-government programs that solve the world's problems, and Republicans prefer smaller and leaner government that stays out of the way of the private sector.

    But the record says the opposite.

    Re: United States loses its AAA Credit rating from S & P

    Meanwhile back to the topic of the thread.

    < A Standard & Poor’s director said for the first time Thursday that one reason the United States lost its triple-A credit rating was that several lawmakers expressed skepticism about the serious consequences of a credit default — a position put forth by some Republicans.>



    <“That a country even has such voices, albeit a minority, is something notable,” he added. “This kind of rhetoric is not common amongst AAA sovereigns.”>

    Maybe someone should have looked into George W Bush's relationship with Osama Bin Laden's family before we elected him President?

    "If you do business with terrorists, if you support or succor them, you will not do business with the United States," said President Bush.

    He didn't say anything about doing business with a terrorist's brother - or his wealthy financier.

    When President George W. Bush froze assets connected to Osama bin Laden, he didn't tell the American people that the terrorist mastermind's late brother was an investor in the president's former oil business in Texas. He also hasn't leveled with the American public about his financial connections to a host of shady Saudi characters involved in drug cartels, gun smuggling, and terrorist networks.

    requiring Americans to purchase something is Marxism?

    was the Militia Act of 1792 Marxist? it required Americans to buy a gun, ammo, powder, and a satchel.

    Wow, Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, Adams, Hamilton & Washington were Marxists!!!!

    Aw 'cmon. I can't stand Bush but this is on a par with claiming that Obama pals around with terrorists because he was on a board with Ayers.

    OBL was estranged from his family.

    Most states require drivers to buy auto liability insurance - I guess most states are Marxist?
