    History ....start with 1985's budget....follow the leads...ta da...get back to me when you have read up.

    Actually, now that I think of it, go through my earliest threads here. I long since shot this down. Or do a search where I posted about David Stockman. It is all there. And yes, YOU have to do the work, I am too sick and tired of having to repeat this to the ignorant.

    p.s. WHile you are doing your research, 1985 is the key year as Stockman quit then...significance to budgets. I shall say no more, carry on.

    Better yet, let's start with 1985's budget, zero out all spending on non-defense programs, and see what happens to the deficit.

    You keep missing the part about the spending the Democrats push on us being unconstitutional, and hence illegal.

    Why is that?

    Here is a video of the townhall meeting in question. Disregard the captions.

    To paraphrase, he's already admitted he doesn't care about the constitution if he feels something is right by his standards.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Claims do not constitute proof of anything. What specific evidence do you have that people were being paid and bussed in by corporate interests?

    Apparently "cause he and Sam W. say so" is supposed to suffice.

    Is there any part of the report that you wish to claim is untrue? I am not the one investigating these lobbyists, NBC News did that. If you believe they got something wrong, tell us what it is.

    What is this obsession with busses? Go to the RecessRally website and join one of their caravans if you want to ride a bus.
    Meanwhile, NBC's investigation of this "spontaneous groundswell" continued last night, revealing some congressmen have received death threats, and one was hung in effigy outside his office. Is this democracy, or does it sound more like Kristalnacht?
