    Since apparently it matters to you, our house has only one bathroom. Oh, and no air conditioning. Now are you going to say something of any importance or not?
    Probably not... >_>

    When you talk about the Republican candidates, you have to say "Mitt or Newt," else you'll have to say "Neuter Mitt."

    A person in a studio apartment notices you had a spare bedroom to rent out. Why do you need a spare bedroom? Seems kind of extravagant to me.

    Gee, I dunno. Maybe my sister recently graduated and moved out?
    Also, I love how you accuse us of whining when the rich have millions in spare cash, yet here you are whining about bathrooms and such.

    So what. You are now living large and society has their eyes set on your lavish ways now. They are coming for you with pitchforks screaming of paying your fair share.

    I didn't ignore it at all, in fact I noted that the only way in the last 30 years we have significantly reduced the deficit is when we both cut spending and increased taxes.

    The congressional Republicans rejected the debt commissions proposals to increase taxes as it goes against the pledge they made to their benefactors.

    We spend almost as much of the rest of the world combined on the military. Until we are prepared to slash that kind of overspending, talk of tax cuts is nonsense.
    Again, no specifics, just rhetoric. how much, Catawba? Stop diverting. The current Military budget is about 750 billion, cut how much? Talk by liberals of sending more money to the govt. is nonsense but apparently you believe the govt. needs the money more than the taxpayers

    What proposals of the Bowles/Simpson committee did Obama adopt?

    Keep buying the rhetoric from the liberal establishment, the wealthy are paying the same rate you are paying for capital gains and are paying a higher rate on their income than you are paying.
