One of you will end up here next!
Further, people convicted of lesser crimes, the ones who are going to be released sooner or later, need to be sentenced not to a certain period of time, but to a set amount of hard labor. You have so may yards of gravel and rocks to move to rebuild this levy. Now, here's your wheelbarrow, and your shovel. When you're finished, your sentence is done. Meanwhile, you stay in a tent surrounded by machine gun nests.
Sounds right to me.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

You were the one who argued that any state that has a rainy day fund has has a surplus independent of the amounts within the rainy day fund. Therefore, if a state had a deficit of $10 billion as your state is projected to have, you argued that the $8.2 billion rainy day fund meant the state had a net surplus.
And you confused a projected $10 billion deficit as stated by your own comptroller as a surplus.
So, am I really wrong here?
Come again? You mean like how I pointed out Texas has been running deficits without its rainy day fund for years?It does seem you have a distorted view as to the role of Govt. Obviously you prefer to re-write history instead of actually reading and understanding history.
Care to actually back that statement up?Your distortion of the Reagan years is a perfect example but there is an entire tread devoted to refuting your anti Reagan claims and there are non partisan sites such as BEA.gov, BLS.gov, U.S. Treasury which refute your statements.
Care to back that statement up? Or have you ignored my many posts where I criticized Obama for being a Bush clone. See Dav about this. He has taken offense to my many arguments calling Obama a Bush clone.Apparently you don't find it hypocritical to point out your problems with Reagan and Bush but ignore when Obama implements Reagan and Bush policies.
You know, making stuff up because you're too lazy to get the facts isn't helpful.
But Reagan and Bush pushed huge amounts of spending which did cause government contracts to expand private payroll. We have a thriving security industry that lives largely off of government contracts right now. Boeing got to where it is because of government contracts. Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and others are in the same position. Republican presidents aside from Bush Sr. have created huge amounts of private sector jobs through public funding. Obama's doing the virtual same thing. .Both understood you empower people not the govt. to create jobs.
Okay..it's still socialism.Both understand the obligations owed to our military thus the VA funding.
Huh. You mean like tax cuts under Obama too?Both understand personal responsibility thus provided tax cuts to allow people to need less govt.
Stimulus tax savings analyzed by household - Feb. 21, 2009
LOL. I guess when a Republican pushes a tax cut, it's good, but when a Democrat does it, no credit at all.
The work crew down town in my financial district seems to suggest that it did. Did it create many? Probably not. But the notion it created none is highly unrealistic.I know know a few others who are part of the 6% that believe the stimulus plan actually created jobs.

Thus far, people have been using ad hominem in an attempt to discredit O'Reilly, but I have yet to read a good reason to disagree with O'Reilly's basic message. It is the message, not the person, that is the subject of debate.
That reminds me . . .
If you dislike O'Reilly, but if what he said is true, then are you willing to admit that what he said is true?
