    That's right. Send my money to IsNtReal and AfricanT and vote for wars to the tunes of trillions but don;t you dare give MY fucking tax dollars to a US citizen.
    You;re a fucking idiot. I hope they nuke all you assholes off the map or invent a bio agent for people with an IQ under 80---- that'll cover 99% of the republick_cunt party.

    I smell a rat.....

    Susan Collins pushing for fiscal conservancy, and (seemingly) agreeing with a conservative principle?

    What's in it for her personally?

    I'm for anything that saves Federal money. If she found a program with fraud and stops it, great!!

    That would mean that every single federally run program needs to be audited. Probably wouldn't be a bad idea - any guess as to how many tax dollars could be saved?

    I'm with you on saving money, wherever, however.

    Its just that when its proposed by Susan Collins, I have to question what the real motivation is. There has to be something in it for her, and that may be fine (maybe its something for Maine, and not her personally), but I'd like to know what it is first.

    She's taught me to pay very close attention whenever her lips are moving.

    Yeah - you've got a point. I'm not real crazy about Olympia Snowe either.

    Chris Matthews had a decent interview with a couple of teaparty leaders last night. One from Texas, Phillip Dennis, was harsh but honest.

    They talked about means testing for SS benefits and GOP out of control spending like during the Bush years. Chris was asking how they expected to control some of the GOP leaders who are unbeatable in their districts like Boehner and others.

    Dennis said they'd better find Jesus or watch their butts.. :lol:

    I don't know how to copy it here but scroll down to find it.

    Hardball with Chris Matthews

    Collins and Snowe both seem to vote based on their principles rather than taking the party line every time.

    In this case, her principles and the GOP party line seem to be aligned.

    Good for her!
