    I made ONE comment that was factual and I've explained it. You want to hijack the whole thread over it and I'm not surprised. That's what lefties do when they've got nowhere else to go.

    If you want to support any of your remarks about how this "record budget surplus" is great news for the economy and bad news for republicans, then go out and find me an economic news story about it on any of the finance sites. Good luck with that. It's not economic news. Not good news. Not bad news. It's not economic news. If you weren't scraping the bottom of the barrel trying to find something that WAS good news, this "record surplus for the month of June ever" crap wouldn't even be on the front page of a newspaper anywhere.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    By the way all, this is good economic news. It is a sign that economic growth is beginning to chip away at the revenue gap that was created by the financial crisis.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Nope. You want to go off topic because the data cannot support your position. The U.S. deficit has the potential to be cut in half in the span of a year... without austerity.

    Now imagine how foolish the Europeans are feeling for being duped into such nonsense.

    How do you figure? The fact that there was a record turnout by the black community for Obama isn't a racist statement. It's a matter of public record. The fact that without a black candidate, the reasonable expectation would be for the black community to go back to historic averages in both turnout and vote isn't racist, either. You lefties are so anxious to play the race card that you don't even think before you do. You just slap it down every time you hear the word "black".

    Maybe it will help if you point out where you pointing out demographics has supposedly turned into others playing the "race card". I've seen a discussion that has expanded on your fact. It really seems like you're using "race card" for anyone even mentioning race...even responding to your post which went specifically to talk about the african american vote.

    1. Thank "sequester", which democrats did nothing but badmouth.
    2. The budget is not going to be cut in half in any span of time because there's no "less spending" going on.
    3. If your "budget" is twice as much as you actually earn, don't get all excited because you only spent 90% of your "budget" and think you're getting rich because of that.

    You obviously weren't following. I pointed out that the black vote won't be so strong in 2016 and got accused of making a "racist" remark because of that. Pundits WILL be talking about that as 2016 approaches and it's not "racist". It's just demographics and statistics.
