    This is why we have 22 trillion in debt, both sides give their side a free pass

    Lets not forget the interest on the debt and who we owe.

    Let's face it. Those arguing about the definition of "surplus," an accounting definition, are the same ones who loudly cheered the two absolute disasters that followed the above surplus... W and O.

    To them, borrowing from China is fine, since that doesn't affect them right now.... or something like that.

    How anyone can claim to be a Patriotic American and at the same time cheer trillion dollar deficits is beyond me.

    Those folks are not Patriotic Americans. They are rather causing America to go UNDER....

    Interest payments have to be made as well. Interest payments are dead money as they cannot be used for anything.

    Know any other good fairy tales. The fact is that both parties have their sacred cows they are unwilling to place any restrictions on. Military contractors are eating our lunch with their cost overruns.

    Uh-huh....And the excuse when Chimpola Bush had both houses of congress for SIX FUCKING YEARS, and still spent like a drunken Kennedy, the excuse that we had republicans but not conservative republicans running the show.

    Face it, dude, the republicans are as disinterested in spending discipline as are democrats.

    but never anything more....

    I'm not "the other side", Chumlee....I hold them both in more-or-less equal contempt.
