Like I said, I'm pretty much a moron, please explain how this would help our finances as a nation.
    Just because the problem has caused a situation that is hard to take, doesn't mean that we shouldn't try does it?

    The baggers and the extreme right are much to entrenched in their racist agendas of hate. Change will take a long time and so there is nothing for it but to laugh at Americans for what they are purposely doing to themselves.

    If they eventually look to other countries for a recipe to success they will perhaps find their way out of their mess. It just happens to be exactly the opposite direction to which the baggers want to take you.

    Well, I sure do not want to see what it is like ignoring a almost a third of our bills each month. Hard to take? $83.33-Billion a month is a little more than "hard to take." Where is it going to come from? Defense? Social Security? Medicare? The CDC? Corporate subsidies? Let's say "All of the above." OK, break it down for me, we stop paying for these things or scale them down greatly right this instant. Now, what we'd be doing then, is enacting grand and sweeping change on this nation the likes we have never seen before. That's seems a little marxist to me. The poor would get poorer . . . the middle class would become poor, and even the wealthy would suffer, unless of course you can show me how cutting $83.33-Billion out of the budget every month would work. I believe you are calling for it, so please, explain it to me so I understand it, my simple mind doesn't seem to "Get It."

    Palin was a governor of a state without people, but lots of salmon, bear, deer, moose and misquitos. She was pretty much a glorified park ranger.

    You're asking for an honest discussion. You won't get it! The best you'll get is suggestions that there is too much waste. The real truth is that the wealthy aren't paying taxes and the ordinary people are paying too much.

    At least try to come to the understanding that the poor aren't trying to steal the rich's money. the system of government has already allowed the wealthy to steal the ordinary people's share. If Americans can't get to that understanding then there's little hope.

    Well, I question your number, get it? So, unless you can show me that first, then we have nothing further to discuss get it?, other than your revealing that you are for endless borrowing on our children's future get it?, and continuing to print endless amounts of fiat currency,get it?

    Obviously a very dimwitted person who had good looks to get her into politics. A great example of the absolute ignorance of voters who are looking for a pretty face and nothing more. And right up the the level of VP!!! How can it get any worse than that? Could Americans ever make a gatepost stupid person president based on appearance alone?

    J . . . I used your numbers and a calculator. You supplied the $260-Billion in tax revenue and $25-Billion a month numbers. I just used a calculator. Now, unless you are saying you don't trust your own numbers . . . I would think you would agree with mine. Although once again, I am pretty stupid, so I could have used my calculator wrong. Get it?

    If I have you wrong Dave, you are saying that there is 83 billion plus that would go unpaid right? That leaves roughly 70% of the current budget that could be paid, right? So where is the threat of default? No where. Are you really proposing that a 3.8 trillion dollar budget per year doesn't have 30% waste in it?

    I never thought of Palin as stupid. I do think she is a reasonably intelligent women. That said, she appears intellectually lazy, which makes her ignorant. Either way, she achieved her Peter Principle (for those that know that reference) as head park ranger of the Alaska National Wildlife Preserve (which is formally know as the State of Alaska).
