    I'm sure, I even emboldened the quote and underlined it. Cap spending at 18% of national income. Now, I want to make it clear, I was using J-mac's numbers as it concerns revenue and interest on the debt. Although they seem accurate. We take in approximately $3.12-Trillion in tax revenue while paying $300-Billion a year on just the interest on the debt . . . no principal reduction is included in these numbers. So, if we take $300-Billion out to service the debt . . . we end up with approximately $2.8-Trillion to run our government. Leaving us with an approximate $1-Trillion budget deficit annually. Even if we wanted to just break even, we would have to eliminate approximately 26% of the estimated $3.8-Trillion budget this year. Immediately, and I do mean this instant if we are to follow the suggestions by J-mac.

    Again, I am not smart enough to know how that can be done without hurting this country at this time. I am willing to be educated though. And even if we accomplished this task, we still would not be paying one dollar towards the principal on the debt.

    You are going in circles, we already went over the fact that the Treasury had already been juggling payments with cash on hand and was coming up to a point of cash shortage. You ignore the information from Lew and you call it "opinion". You have been dealing with faulty opinion from Horowitz and consider that to be fact. I'm afraid it is all upside down.

    Good luck.

    This is probably true. Still, them being stuck in a minimum wage job doesn't help society either. Young people do stupid ****.
    Soon enough most o those minimum wage jobs will be performed by robots, so, you can imagine what the consequences o this will be to those filling those positions...

    This is true. Unfortunately, we will always have lazy people too.
    Ya... And if a person is simply lazy they need a kick in the butt sometimes, by NOT providing welfare to those people... They don't wanna work, they can suffer themselves.

    Funny anecdote; was working this job where each day would walk under this bridge where each day this guy was asking for change. The third day he asks, I tell him "hey, just around the corner here there is a job, you can make 15$/hr just to walk on site and push a broom, you'll make more money there then you'll ever see under this bridge".

    "oh that sounds good, I'll go there for sure." the next day I see him again and again he asked for change, so I ask him if he went to the site to get a job.

    This a-hole tells me "I didn't have time."

    My opinions are backed by logic and common sense as well as Treasury data. There is more than enough money coming in monthly to pay the entitlement obligations and interest on the debt to prevent default. keep spinning. Do you get extra for that

    Obama is suppose to be the Cn'C of our military and I didn't see him yesterday removing the barricades and carrying them over to his crib at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

    BTW. Saraha Palin was just not a better Cn'C than Obama, but Palin had higher approval ratings from the troops as Cn'C than Obama ever had.
    She should run for president!

    I don't consider Rand Paul much of a actual libertarian. He has some libertarian leanings, but for the most part, his base is the Christian right.

    In 2008, she had more executive experience than Obama had. And we had access to her college transcripts and even her birth certificate.

    And I'm sure Palin's first actions as POTUS wouldn't have been disgracing Great Britain by returning the bust of Winston Churchill to the British Embassy and Palin would have never embarrassed America by bowing to foreign monarchs and Vladimir Putin would be questioning his manhood and wondering how good of a rifle shot Sarah Palin was.

    And we would still be unquestionably a world superpower.

    Damn. This is the best fan fiction I have seen in a long time. Be sure to put her in a red white and blue leotard with a cape that has a cross on the back. And instead of a crown of thorns give her a crown of tea leaves . But for Fox, be sure you die her hair blond and give her a VIctorias Secret Bra with triple padding. And her boots need to be thigh high with spikey heels. Bible in one arm, Uzi in the other.

    If you are gonna do it, do it right.

    Just be sure she doesn't call the Justice League and quit because she doesn't want to be a lame duck superhero.
