    Let us not forget that these "takers," who the Far Right so dearly love to slander, disproportionately include the elderly--many of whom fought in a war that actually defended our freedoms. But who am I kidding, we love to praise veterans with our mouths and **** on them with our actions.

    Republicans could cause her to testify. But Republicans in the Senate caved last night. Not raising taxes is far more important than having Hillary testify. After all, we already know two things. 1) Mistakes were made. 2) Nobody made them.
    So the "clock" here is the fact that GOP has realized its witch hunt has failed and that its falling poll numbers reflect its bizarre fixations that most Americans don't care about? You mean that clock?

    They dont have to she already state she will
    Lieberman: 'Clinton Has Made Clear She Will Testify' On Benghazi | TPM LiveWire
    Hillary Clinton to testify on Benghazi

    did you not read the sources?
    ""Secretary Clinton has made clear that she will testify and I think that's a good idea," Sen. Joe Lieberman said during a news conference Monday."
    "Lieberman also said that the Senate Committee on Homeland Security received thousands of pages of documents from the State Department, and that they offer "no evidence of direct responsibility" regarding Clinton on the issue of denying requests for increased security funding at the Benghazi facility."

    So yes she is going to testify thats the reality of things
    I guess the difference between us is that I do not believe her. You do. We shall see. Maybe she will. Maybe it will be a recitation of "I cannot recall"s.

    <Cutting the deficit by reducing spending puts money in my pocket: This ignores the fact that a) you weren’t being taxed to finance the deficit in the first place (or it wouldn’t have been a deficit) and b) government spending is money in someone’s pocket. Thus, cutting the deficit by reducing spending removes money. This is true even if you are in the private sector, since those government employees bought groceries, paid rent, went to the mall, etc., etc. They earned income for you by buying what you sell.>


    <The debt has never been this large: The proper measure of the size of the debt is relative to the size of the economy. Gross Domestic Product is typically used as the gauge of the latter. Even the most extreme measures of where it stands today puts debt/GDP at less than 100%. It reached it peak during WWII, when it was around 120% of GDP. The 1950s were , incidentally, hardly a period of economic Armageddon.>

    <The debt must be repaid: We must, of course, meet the “monthly payments,” but the level of debt need never be zero. The government has an infinite life span, so there is no day of reckoning when all debts must be settled. And since the debt is owed in dollars, there is never any question that we have the ability to repay since we are allowed to issue brand new ones at any time. Nor is this necessarily inflationary, as explained in the next fallacy.>

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Aw, yes, a true Obama supporter, someone who has no concept as to the value of money, the cost of printing money, and inflationary effects of excessive govt. spending. You really need to tell the Treasury Dept. their numbers are wrong and the fact that we are paying way too much in debt service that does nothing to help the American people. Our current debt exceeds our yearly GDP and continues to rise. It really is a shame how poorly educated far too many people are.

    She is scheduled to testify in a week or so. Do you think she will? If so do you think she will say anything of value? Or will she do what she has always done?

    So first you said she was faking it, then you said she wont testify, now you admit she is going to testify, now its "oh she wont say anything worthwhile and only do what she always does".

    Mid-winter fishing, nothing like it. I knew if I dangled the proper bait I would land me big ole winger carp.

    Notice that little bit of pink hanging on the bottom part of the graph worm,just over the Obama presidency?As soon as we shake that loose in a couple of years we'll turn this sucker around just as we always do.
