I've also noticed the know it all trio have been very quite lately. I guess the truth has exposed there true socialist/communist agenda to WE THE PEOPLE of the USA.


Actually Bill, arguing with the batshit crazy village idiot becomes boring after awhile. Spring is here and most people have other interests other than sitting around patting each other on the back.

I wish you luck in 2012 however - maybe you can put that Palin girl on the ticket.

I agree tvb. But the Palin girl is being smart and somewhat distancing herself from the present Rep. party. A savvy move on her part maybe? All we have to do for 2012 is wait because the present admin is shooting themselves repeatedly. All we can hope for is that the Savior and his liberal cohorts do not do irreversible damage to our country. Not to mention that by 2012 all the free health care countries we are supposed to be emulating will have bankrupt themselves and be asking for our help or telling us not to do it like some are now. What village did you say you 3 were hanging out in? That is a lot for one village!

Nope - won't happen.

On Palin - if she continues on pushing religion she isn't going to get far. One thing that is often forgotten by those who believe their religion guides them is that it alienates everyone who may have different beliefs but still follows the right wing ideology. The worst thing your side can do is become a religious party. Unfortunately, it's where it's been headed since about 2000.

She could probably use a membership in the book of the month club and probably the newspaper of the month club. Oh, and the geography lesson of the month club ... :roll: Maybe the republican leadership should have bought her some books instead of those clothes.

I think that was over played. The book and magazine thing I mean. And I agree about the religion, I am an athiest personally but I almost always vote conservative. I don't know what that makes me but I think there are a lot of people like me out there.

If she is so stupid then how come alaska is doing so well and doesnt need government bailout money. Not to mention other conservatively run states that dont need or want bailout money either. The states that are doing the worse and need the most bailout money are all liberal states and run into the ground by high taxes. High taxes kill income for states but democrats have such a huge love affair with taxing anything and everything. They dont even care that it is bankrupting their states. The problem with democrats and liberals is they fear a powerful fiscally responsible woman.

Same thing happened in maryland. Republican governer 2 years ago left us with a budget surplus. New democrat governer came in. Called a special sessions and raised every tax he could think of. Now the state is billions in debt. It doesnt take a genius to figure out that raising taxes and spending money we dont have isnt a good idea.

Oh but that Rep. gov. was neglecting all the give away programs that are just necessary. We have to find a way to fund them so just spend it now and worry about it latter. He was probably a racist to since most of the recipients are blacks, grays, reds, and invariably, a nice shade of brown as I was informed once. Spend spend spend. The federal gov. will send some relief. I have to tell you about the Obama lover that a real conservative friend was arguing with awhile back. He asked her where the money was going to come from for all this bailing and spending and doing. She replied that it was going to come from "funds"! When asked what funds, she said just funds. Apparently, the gov. has a whole bunch of "funds" kicking around they didnt bother to tell us about. You know, funds. The libs would say she is a nut job or poorly informed, but I have yet to have a single Liberal tell me how we are going to "fund" all the programs and bail out all the companies and cut taxes to the middle class and pay for these things. If you took all the money that all the wealthy people have in the US you still wouldn't dent the amount we need for health care alone. And I mean wealthy is anyone making over $100,000 dollars a year. The math just does not work. It has been best described as a gov. run ponzi scheme.

Kevin

Anyway, we have gone over this many times before so we will have to wait and see who has the magic money tree.

The liberals and democrats don't understand morals and values they just know how to spend to make their friends happy while the rest of us have to pay. And it is true the states that are the most heavily taxed are in trouble but that started long before the taxing and way to late to catch by more taxes. California is the example their local liberal government restricted parental rights,anything to do with environment and taxes are so high average people are leaving the state because they can't afford to live there as is in New Jersey and New york. By California's example our "messiah" hasn't learned spending what you don't have put's you farther in debt and if you don't have it don't spend it.

Well, I suppose they would say they are more compassionate and have the interests of the people that have no say in mind. The same goes for the enviromentalist. They would tell you that we have to change our ways. And they are passionate about it. But I would agree that they have not figured out how to pay for it except take all our money and redistribute it. Change for the sake of change I call it. They just can't stand the status quo.

Let's keep our eye on the ball here. The Federal Reserve has been printing money by the bushel since Alan Greenspan took over. And then "Helicopter Ben" continued the same policy.

"Free money" induces "moral hazard". That is, it entices people to make decisions they might not otherwise make. And even if you have tons of self control, how long can you resist when the gravy train is passing you by?

We all know that lots of people bought houses they couldn't afford. But lots more people re-fi'd their house to put on an addition, buy a bass boat, or take a vacation.

But states also did things like hired a bunch of people and started projects that they really wanted. They did it by selling bonds, or refinancing old debt. Like everyone else, they took a little extra. And they could do it without raising taxes, much or at all. Gotta keep those voters happy. Happy voters don't make wholesale changes in the state house do they?

And now, like everyone else, their investments went belly up, people are getting laid off so income and sales tax receipts are plummeting and the states are strapped.

So again, the Federal Reserve comes to the rescue, prints a ton of money and we have a "stimulus". Some states are making the hard choices and cutting personnel and projects and some are not. When the Fed stops printing money, we'll see who made the right move and who didn't.

But the root cause is Congress trying to be everything to everyone and the Fed happily going along. Because they get paid interest on all this "free" money.

My state is so strapped they are trying to take the excise tax away from the towns. It is the only thing that supports town gov. Basically, it will cause the towns to collapse and the state will take control and mandate from the capitol. It also is punishment for the strong town selectmen that have succesfully caused a referendum to be held on a law our Dem governor and Dem everything else passed to consolidate schools and create hardship for small towns. It is designed to drive people out of rural areas. They mandate programs for our own good, they mandate new schools, then they cut the funding by changing the formula for funding so that large schools in more populated areas get the most money. Screw the country people. Just like NYC etc.

From what I've seen no matter what the environmentalist or radical left think they cause more problems than they solve. They tend to create all kinds of laws against something but rarely give a working resolution. They rather put a farmer in poverty for a mouse than resolve the matter like compensate him for the land they stole from him but now thats a moral issue they can't justify. The federal government need to be slapped back into their LIMITED function "National Security" and not the usurped authority they've stolen. The federal reserve needs to be eliminated there is no reason we can't print our own money because there are a lot of country's counterfeiting it anyway so it can't be that hard. I wish the radical left would stop trying to help unless they are specifically ask to do so and when asked to do so help ONLY those who need it and not think just because a minority asks doesn't license them to feel better about themselves and hand it to those who don't need it but will abuse it. If help is ask for then accountability needs to be instated because this is paid with our tax dollars but as we have all seen very little accountability is seen until it's brought up before WE THE PEOPLE. As an example AIG the radical left approved the bonuses then lied about it got caught fluffed it off and look nobody got prosecuted for misuse of TARP funds. But then again they have no morals or values to police themselves but they will point somewhere or to somebody else to justify their dishonesty. To the democrats/republicans its business as usual why am I not surprised.
