    How about the crippled and dependent pets get off their ass and start proividing for themselves. How about they get educations, make sacrifices, prepare their children for a future. Oh...two can play thyis mindless class warfare bull**** my friend.

    WHy raise taxes on ANYONE when both parties spend money like crack fiends? My position has been pretty clear...pass legislatively mandated spending cuts, gut the fed, and I will full on support legislatively sundowned tax increases specifically to pay off the debt.

    Food, gas, clothing, personal care products and cleaning and laundry supplies make up less than a quarter of household spending in the United States, according to government data. People at the bottom of the income scale struggle more as these prices rise, of course, because a larger share of their spending is on such essentials.

    Yes of COURSE you would hope that so the government could give you MORE free cheese.

    This dumb hillbilly isnt the one crying for government help. This dumb hillbilly has provided quite well for himself, his family, and grandkids.

    Im also smart enough to see that the two political parties pander to weak willed pathetic mindless assholes for their votes. And it works.

    Re: Where's the stimulus?

    Question: “Because unemployment at the time was 8.1% – the charts that were initially put out suggested that we would be below – we would be below 7% at this point – uhh, we’re at 9%, so…?”

    “I -I – We said, and I’ll repeat that we don’t want to re litigate the past, but uhh, this is what I was getting at in my answer, is the the projections the economic team made at the time were based upon the numbers that everyone had at the time and were reflected in the projections made by a lot of outside economic analysts and institutions. Uh, the reality as time passed, was that the hole we were in, this country was in as President Obama was sworn into office was much deeper than even we knew in December and November prior to that."

    Beayooootiful.
