    And you have the nerve to accuse me of poor comprehension. You have no clue what I posted. Like I said in an earlier post, it went right over your head.

    Adios.

    Oh, I dunno, giving $2 billion to Brazil for offshore drilling, fewer entitlements, cut spending on the study of the effect of cocaine on monkies, deer underpasses, turtle tunnels, Congress' salaries, government funded abortions, cash for clunkers.

    Just a few things off the top of my head.

    Where would you do some cutting?

    How much will that effect the budget?

    You don't think that $2 billion dollars would effect the budget?

    so off the top of your head, not much. i would NOT cut now, except wasteful spending. sure, i'll go with turtle tunnels, deer underpasses and cocaine on monkeys.....what's THAT come to? lol.

    i'd even go for cutting funding to brazil. again, not much in the grand scheme. nothing you mentioned, except entitlements, amounts to much. specifically, what entitlements and by what percentage?

    OK, I'm feeling bad. Maybe I have been too harsh with you, but you didn't seem to understand the meat of my orginal comment. Profit from taxes is not enough to intice new jobs if there is not enough people spending to warrant it. I thought this was obvious, but you seem to skip right past it. Lower taxes don't and can't prove enough profit to ignore the realities of consumer spending.

    Your snarky reply irritated me, but maybe I was too snarky in return. I'll try and give your the ebenfit of the doubt one more time. But try to respond to the argument and without being too snarky. I'll try and do the same. Or we can forget.

    Maybe a little, but the budget is huge. Larger budget items like military spending have to be tackled to make any real difference. Even if we cut out all smaller itemas altogether.

    ■Defense and security: In 2010, some 20 percent of the budget, or $715 billion, will pay for defense and security-related international activities. The bulk of the spending in this category reflects the underlying costs of the Department of Defense and other security-related activities. The total also includes the cost of supporting operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, which is expected to total $172 billion in 2010.
    ■Social Security: Another 20 percent of the budget, or $708 billion, will pay for Social Security, which provided retirement benefits averaging $1,117 per month to 36 million retired workers (and their eligible dependents) in December 2009. Social Security also provided survivors’ benefits to 6.4 million surviving children and spouses of deceased workers and disability benefits to 9.7 million disabled workers and their eligible dependents in December 2009.
