    So, the Fonzi of Freedom is doing his phony equivalence song-and-dance again. At least he's just indirectly shilling for the GOP this time, instead of directly shilling for the GOP.

    Example? Sure. Gillispie happily parroted all of Issa's crazy big and totally debunked "Fast and Furious" lies. When a person willingly jumps on the GOP conspiracy theory bandwagon, I correctly point out how that constitutes shilling for the GOP.

    Well, cyint, no one in their right mind cuts their own income flow. And b/c of tax cuts we can't afford, federal funds to the states dried up. That in turn cut available state funds, which, in turn affected local governments. This led to cuts in jobs at the state, fed, and local levels, which in turn cuts available financial resources because of lost tax revenues.

    So are you really surprised that Grover norquist and his buddies are full of it?

    I for one am tired of paying into the federal money pot that gets sent to other states. Municipalities and states should live within their means. Virginia has a 400 some odd million dollar surplus this year. The dem governor before McDonnell closed Interstate rest areas because he could not pay for them. Cali and Illinois needs to figure out and solve their own problems. Have you heard Maryland's answer to their budget crisis? The dem governor just signed a law that increased gambling in poor, black neighborhoods and of course, he is raising taxes once again.

    I think more Freed Trade Agreements should do the trick! Americans are struggling as it is to find jobs, lets ship the remaining ones overseas!

    And your right Jillian. States and Federal Gov't should raise taxes and take money out out of the pockets of Americans until the Economy recovers. Which will be never.
