    That's an interesting point. Most if not all in Congress make $250K or more a year, I would bet they have exempted themselves.

    I'm thinking the logical solution is for the people to start stealing from the government to suppliment their income. Maybe jack a few military vehicles to cut up fro scrap. Just imagine how much chain link fence surrounds a military base. Then there are (or all there?) those FEMA camps people keep sending me emails about...

    Why don't they call it the Military Offense budget. We've been on offense as long as I can remember. Vietnam, Granada, Panama, Nicaragua, Iraq, Afghanistan, or more precisely at war with any Nation that has resources that our powerful Corporations covet. We get what those Corporations want. We foot the bill and they divide the profits. I keep forgetting that those Corporations have personhood via Citizens United.

    You mean like wind and solar that does not save one drop of oil, and infrastructure. How about paying down our debt? I didn't see you mention that.

    a key priority, which will require spending cuts and tax increases. as for wind and solar, I understand and disagree with the "only oil forever" / "get a horse" position.

    That is a brilliant statement. Now try using wind and solar when you need oil. Like when I drive my big ass coach across the country and I get 7 MPG of diesel, no wind or solar is going to help me out there. Like I said wind and solar does not save one drop of oil. All wind and solar does is make electricity, it is no substitute for what oil can and does do.

    Using solar to power a home frees up oil which can then be made in to gasoline to power a car. Once again, Logic 101.

    That's one of the biggest wastes of my money, ever.
