    I never made such a claim.
    Oh wait.
    That thing about how the rich don't need millions upon millions in wealth?
    Dude, that's called common sense. If you want to dispute it then explain to me why one would need all that money?

    There's a big difference in reducing the "deficit" (amount overspent the income) and balancing a budget! How long can your personal finances sustain DEFICIT spending? Smart people in private life act idiots when elected! How do you FIX this!
    If you live long enough, you will live in a foreign country, because the past is foreign to the present. We lived differently then. The only constant is change!

    What part of that do you not understand?
    the middle class doesn't need it either, but since we can't predict the future, how about we let them keep more of it just the same.

    Slashed to what? How come no one can ever get a figure for what is fair or how much should be cut from any program you don't like? could it be because you understand that the amount is insignificant to what liberals are spending? Do you have any idea how much in state and local taxes those evil rich people pay? How much charitable contributions they make? How much they give to churches? how much they give to their communities?

    Seems like you prefer that the Federal govt. pick the winners and losers rather than the individual taxpayer spending their money wherever they want

    You can call people names if it make you feel better about yourself. However. its simply a matter of mathematics. - a consumer economy cannot prosper when most of the money is concentrated at the top.

    Re: State of the Union Address

    If the presidents (plural) obeyed the constitution and we only warred with a declaration of war from congress as required, we wouldn't NEED such an overwhelming military. And I'm a Vietnam vet. Enlisted and not drafted because it was my duty. We don't need to be meddling overseas. If we do go to war? Do it quick, lethal and final! Not this no collateral damage stupid philosophy. There are no innocents in war!
