    And what does that have to do with the thread? Not that it is true.

My contention has always been that you cut when ever and where ever you can, and it will all add up.
    Sure, as long as you keep your approbation proportionate to the cut.

    But that's not how the budget works. We have three huge programs, and we can afford maybe two and a small one, one large one and two moderate ones -- but not three huge ones. You can't cut off at the edges and expect to balance the budget. You have to put a stake in the heart. Problem is, all three of those huge programs are instrumental to the functioning of the American economy and society at their core.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    a lame, limp perhaps, proposal, a mere pimple on Rush Limbaugh's ass could come up with better stuff, not that any of it will mean squat in the long run...
    If they wanted to make real progress, they would ask the voters via referendum how they should govern, how long they get to serve, and what issues to address first.

    Oh to the contrary. They are indeed pushing the same old ideas that contributed to the financial meltdown. And the entire social issue dragon has yet to raise its ugly head ... but I expect that will happen at some point in the next year. Don't be so quick to declare a new beginning when the same old people still are in charge.
