    Yes, I meant they are theoretically capable of it. Our current government cannot even do one thing. Because a capacity limit on gun magazines is the same thing as jackbooted thugs kicking down everyone's door (just like hitler!) and taking all our guns, and the notion that insurance companies should be allowed to charge a co-pay for birth control pill is a war on women.

    It's as much our fault as it is theirs.

    Well, I for one am actually shocked. Why do news like this only get released at night? Also, heads should roll for this. The debt needs to be paid down eventually and we on both just keep avoiding the issue to debate nonsense like gun control and abortions.
    Why not let the progressives hang themselves?

    They have no desire to payoff debt - they only care about splurging on their constituents. I say let them... At this point the US is a lost cause.

    Don't you love the bleak nihilism of conservatism. Another reason why nobody takes it seriously.

    Now, back to reality. The nice think is that with the GOP having to back off of crisis mode, the economy is set to take off according to every economists. The GOPs only hope was to squelch the recovery, but it's too late now. As the recovery sets in, the Bush debt will become increasingly irrelevant and the Tea Party Occupation forces will seem more and more for the knownothings they are.

    The economy is FUBAR..... Our currency is worth nothing more than monopoly money - the only reason why it is - is because of "faith."

    We were downgraded for a reason, European nations are pulling their gold for a reason.

    It's only a matter of time....

    I see stores closing not opening.....My local strip mall is dead - 9/10 stores are closed and the only ones that remain are big name retailers and franchise businesses - the local small shops are all gone. Obama and the progressives in general are hostile to business. Hell, my family had to shut their doors on their retail store.

    Keep telling yourself that, and buy a compound in the desert.

    In the meantime all signs indicate the economy is finally going to be experiencing decent growth in the next few quarters. And with that the tea party occupation forces will have to come up with new crank theories.

    Who are you going to believe? The Kool Ade drinkers or what everyone sees happening around them?

    The "leftists" live in a fun house. They view reality in those trick mirrors. Reality is no concern just perception. They believe if they scream recovery loud and often it will happen. If an inconvenient truth exists they can plug their ears with their fingers and cry lalalalalala...

    Exactly, while the GOP was complaining about spending, and 90 Democrats voted against it, the GOP unanimously voted for spending $630 billion dollars on the military industrial complex in 2013, almost as much as the rest of the world combined!
