    Pass a law that for every % defecit a govt is, federal, state or local. The legislators salaries are cut by the same percentage.

    You waited an hour on week night and declared victory. How ignorant of you.

    The way one balances a budget is to stop spending more then one has. In order to do that one has to have the freedom to effect all budget items that require outlays. And yes in some cases one may need to increase revenues.

    There were 22 looks and no responses. Did you even look at the link?

    I have to laugh when someone calls me ignorant when that someone didn't read the link and offers a very simple solution to a very complex problem. RGS might understand with a little help from the field in which he should have some knowledge.

    Consider RGS that I'm in a gun mount affixed on the bow of a Navy DD. The DD is cruising at 18 knots and running hard into eight foot seas with a wind off the port side blowing at 20 knots sustained with gusts as high as 38 knots. Our target is 2000 yards off starboard at 0135 moving at 6 knots changing headings every couple of minutes.

    The gun capt. says, "point and shoot". What are the odds I would hit anything but the sea?

    Yes, I've noticed you're one of the willfully ignorant. That you're proud of being ignorant is amazing and pitiful.

    Those who claim all it takes is more tax cuts, shrinking government and, of course, subsidizing private schools are unwilling to consider serious, rational and complicated solutions to the global and domestic economy. And, of course, the callous conservatives give a damn only for themselves.
