    As long as there is a dime to spend, Obama is going to spend it. Then he will start spending nickels. Wait and watch how creative he gets with new taxes. Everybody who makes more than $50.00 a year is going to have a 5% sircharge because they are too wealthy.

    Last night was another example of the snakeoil salesman.

    He knows his numbers are droping and nobody wants his health care bill, so what happens, he injects racism into his news conferenece as a convient 'question' pops up giving him the perfect diversion.

    I wish they would make up their minds... One day I'm a racist if I don't have an Obama tattoo on my ass. The next day I am a terrorist. Well, damn it. Which is it?

    To the first part of your question - when the moon is in the seventh house and Jupitar aligns with Mars then peace will guide the planet and love will steer the stars

    As for the second part -he has - over and over again - its Bushs fault

    Biden has already covered this silly issue -. We must continue to spend more to avoid going broke.

    I heard on the radio this morning that congress is working on reinstating a version of the PAYGO rules that balanced the federal budget back in the 90's. ( PAYGO - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )

    It is a bit like shutting the barn door after the horse is gone, but it makes sense to repair the door, just in case you get another horse any time soon.

    Look, we spend more on health care than any other nation....Polar ice caps are melting....The status quo is unacceptable.

    We need another solution besides "NO".

    They would only apply that to the normal budget, things like 'stimulous' & 'health care' would be outside of it.
