    Love the chart.

    Funny how with the government, it’s never a spending problem, but always a revenue issue. Like I have said before, I don’t mind helping the needy, but I am tired of supporting stupid, lazy and greedy.

    What’s wrong?

    I have never had a real job in my life. I have been given hand outs since I was a child!

    I have been living off of government checks for decades! I am a net tax dollar recipient! That should tell you something!

    Who cares about the Taxpayer? Who cares about the Taxpayer’s kids? I don’t!

    I have more jobs to kill and more back-breaking debt to load on the few remaining taxpayers and their crappy kids! Budgets are so “Last Century!”

    Let me be clear, my job is to cause hyper inflation; higher gas prices, more dependency of Arab oil and make the US dollar plummet!

    With any skill I think I can get the US dollar to equal one Mexican Peso. America will finally be bankrupt!

    My limousine is guzzling $4.89 per gallon premium fuel and I have more economic destruction to do. I cannot answer any more questions. Good day.

  • democrats(leftists)don’t think raising taxes on the rich will solve the “problem.” they know it will make it worse by taking people’s insentive to work away.

    when you consider that politicans confiscate almost half the money earned in the country and look at what they accomplish when they spend it compared to what the private citizen is able to accomplish when they spend it, our present group of politicans are the most incompetent consumers in history.

    If we can just make the “millionaires and billionaires” pay “a little bit more” this is all gonna be fine! You know Bush tax-cuts for the “wealthiest among us” have created the “worst economy since the Great Depression” and now we need a “balanced” approach!

    Pull Barry’s string and the phrases roll out! He still answers all questions with these same trite cliches!

    After Boehner and the boys roll over, Barry can hit the campaign trail next week and start talking about “assault weapons” and how we must protect the innocent children!

  • Don

    What makes you think that Obama is not fully aware that all of this is smoke and mirrors and distraction? As far as they are concerned their power is worthy of any means and any death.

    Until this came out, I had no idea that comedian/actor Brian Stepanek was on our side politically. Well played, sir.

    #13 Underground Conservative: Thanks for putting a name to this actor who looked familiar to me but who’s name I didn’t know. It IS nice to have someone on our side.

    SHOCK: New York Corner Stores Appear to be Facilitating Rampant Abuse of EBT Welfare Benefits

    But there’s nothing to cut!

    Most people run to the corner bodega for a gallon of milk or a loaf of bread, but some welfare recipients are plunking down $500 at a time in suspicious transactions… Welfare users are only allowed to use their Electronic Benefit Transfer cards to buy food, yet they are rung up like fat cats in tiny stores in The Bronx and Brooklyn where the priciest item is usually an $8 pound of ham.

    Earlier this year, an owner and a cashier at Glenwood Food Corp. in Canarsie, Brooklyn, were arrested for ringing up bogus transactions… A federal sting found the bodega was recording phony purchases on EBT cards, handing customers about 70 percent of the amount in cash — and pocketing the rest. Goods were rarely exchanged in the scam, which defrauded taxpayers out of $985,000 in two years… VIEW

    Sheridan Mini Mart in Morrisania, The Bronx, rang up single sales of $543.40 and $473.50 on June 4, 2012, alone. That’s a lot of bread for a store where the most expensive item is an $11.99 jug of cooking oil… At Tremont’s Palenque Supermarket Corp., ETB where the priciest product is an $18.99 gallon of olive oil, transactions reached as high as $400 last year… Desi Grocery, a tiny East New York store now known as Anchor Grocery, racked up a $585 sale and several $400 sales through June 2012…

    Robert Rector of The Heritage Foundation called the USDA’s anti-fraud procedures “a joke… “There’s virtually no oversight or effort from the USDA to stop this at all,” Rector said. “A store gets disqualified from the program and miraculously it’s back in business in the next two weeks with a new name on the front door.”

    How many hundreds of billions of dollars in our money are “redistributed” through fraudulent Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and food stamp transactions?

    The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind. The answer is blowing in the wind.

    I’m not sure how much good it will do to “watch and comment” on this considering my audience. Maybe it is fun to tilt at futility now and again, just to say I did.

    For just a moment, lets assume that the “debt limit” has anything to do with the Debt Ceiling. Does your household hold it’s own debt? Does your household have it’s own currency that is traded globally and considered the safest investment there is? Does your household have a virtual guarantee of increasing income regardless of who is head of it?

    No. It doesn’t.

    Moment is over, let us now return to reality where the entire “debt ceiling debate” is seen for what it actually is, a continued promise to pay our debt, instead of what Fox News tells you it is, allowing us to spend more.

    In this reality, the one you and I both live in, raising the Debt Ceiling does not incur any new debt. It was the actual debate that caused a downgrade of the USA credit rating, not what was done in the end. And if you remember, or perhaps you don’t, it was congressional Teapublicans that deviated from the norm and made an issue of a rather necessary financial cog and thus triggered a spanking worth (approximately) $40 billion from the hand of Standard & Poors.

    Sorry folks, this libtard just shredded your video. I’m also sorry that you can’t imagine that letting the tax cuts expire for the rich non-job creators (learn supply and demand for that one) makes sense in a time of financial hardship for everyone except the richest. It isn’t a tax hike to stop giving them handouts which I thought conservatives were all for, the no handout part, I mean. Now, go snuggle your guns until you feel better.

    Happy New Year @ cavt. Enjoy.

    P.S. I own two rifles myself, so don’t go batcrap over gun rights now, please. You can keep your obsession, I don’t want it.

    Get over it, people cheat sometimes. Don’t starve an entire classroom because two kids stole some milk.

    Seek to eliminate fraud, but don’t be so gullible as to think what you advocate is helpful to anyone.

  • Tom

    Luke, are you crazy?? “In this reality, the one you and I both live in, raising the Debt Ceiling does not incur any new debt”. What do you think the DEBT ceiling is? It is the maximum amt the country can borrow. If you want to borrow more (i.e. increase debt), you raise the maximum amount.

    Whether you can print your own money or not, its best to be prudent. SOMEONE will have to pay for this debt that you and your liberal friends seem to think is non existent. Please at least take the time to look at the country’s income, and outgo, and immediate and long term debt. The math will speak for itself. This SHOULD have nothing to do with politics, but rather a math lesson.

    I think the problem conservatives have with the idea of raising taxes is that the new money will simply be used by the insatiable government appetite. The gov has to learn how to control its spending. Would you recommend a parent simply give more money to their child if he continues to outspend himself, or would you rather teach him basic math/compounding interest skills and have him live within his means?
