Borrowing .43 cent of every dollar spent, yet spending "$2,993 in taxpayer money on flowers between June and October." R's and D's living it up on the taxpayer dime. Dems say we have no spending problem, while Repubs shout fiscal conservatism while "House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) spent about $24,116 on food and beverage." Flowers for funerals and food/drink should come out of your grossly over inflated salaries in any case, but especially when we are in such crazy debt and have had our credit rating downgraded twice for the first time in our history.

I think it's just the tip of the iceberg though. We're to the point where these yokels aren't even worried about hiding this kind of taxpayer abuse. This is what they show us.

If I were president I wouldn't use a bunch of top shelf pens to sign a bill into law. I'd use a Bic pen and sign it in my underwear without the pomp and circumstance and 50 children standing around you. Cutting spending should start from the top.

By the same groups that rated subprime-mortgage stuffed collateralized debt obligations as "Triple-A."

Whoopee-doo. Why do we worship at the altar of fiscal snake oil salesmen?

BTW, this thread should be "BOTH PARTIES DO IT HURR DURR," since that appears to be what you want to try to convey here. We are currently lacking in terms of vital judge positions, no head of the ATF, no head of the CFPB (and also CFTC, if I'm not mistaken) - and we currently do not have a secretary of defense. Perhaps you can point to when Democrats obstructed to the same degree. I look forward to it.

Joke's on you Myke because there was no CFPB before Obama was President. You lose. Both sides do it :)

I believe berzirk answered this question already. You're the one that wanted to go down that rabbit hole so personal responsibility and all that...:lol:

I give this thread a D. It shows no effort, and a complete lack of thinking.

I thought Republicans liked to eliminate waste fraud and abuse. Every single state mentioned has a republican governor.

Doesn't sound like a spending problem so much as a fraud one.

Apparently it's OK when state governments Fuck up, because it's their right.

Our whole political system, federal, state, and local, is full of fraud and corruption. Giving more power and control over our lives to a system that has proven its ineptitude and lack of morality is foolish. There has got to be a better way...

In a nutshell, and this is all you will ever get. Government screws up, its ok when Republicans screw up because they want to drown in a bath tub.

And I don't understand that, if anything my local/state government pisses me off more than the federal. They're the ones that won't fix the pot holes I run over every day and are acting homophobic about discussing homosexuality in schools.

I am neutral on my local government (city and county), very negative on my state government and hopeless on our federal government.

Hell, I had jury duty today at the local courthouse and thought they did a good job of it. Courts are one of the few things I would like to see increased funding for. In my state we pander to over-funded schools while letting the third branch of government be dismembered.

http://www.courthous...02/21/55047.htm

Cantil-Sakauye pointed to San Bernardino County, which recently closed three of its outlying courthouses, to illustrate the effects of budget cuts.
"So now ... a San Bernardino resident, to get his or her day in court, has to travel 175 miles one way. You have to assume they have transportation, that they can leave work to spend the day in court. Then they have a 175-mile trip back."
She also cited Los Angeles, which will close 10 courthouses by June, and Fresno, which has closed seven courthouses.

Nothing like citing a super conservative free daily paper that reads like a tabloid to get your "facts," right?

Btw, there's already a Stay Classy Obama thread.

He's the head of the Illuminati. Didn't you know!!!???:roll:

I doubt it. She's his successor. Her song "Single Ladies" was about turning girls into feminazis to enslave men. Soros don't got shit on Beyonce. Get your facts straight before they clandestinely take over with hypnotically reductive pop music.

So you have some "facts" disputing the info presented? Here's another take from a gal you must love;)

http://michellemalki...oan-complaints/

Recipient of $341 million Obamacare CO-OP loan runs insurance company with New York’s worst record of complaints



If it's a fabrication, please let me know. Obamacare and these special waivers and loans are like the Iraqi War and Haliburton. Gov't making its friends rich off of taxes.

Let's be honest with each other: you don't give a shit about facts and you don't give a shit about even understanding the issues because instead of making your own arguments, you post shitty links from more than questionable sources that border on being tabloid rags at a checkout line. You even can't ass yourself into typing up a few sentences to frame an argument.

If you can't explain it, then you don't understand it, so stop pretending that you do. But hey, I guess it's better to support someone that made their conservative chops by writing about how people of Japanese decent and US citizenship deserved and were rightfully interred in concentration camps. How absolutely libertarian of you.

You know who else is bombing threads with stupid youtube clips in vs? Some 18 year old kid that really just started developing his political consciousness. This isn't something that I should have to explain to the type of adult that you claim to be.

Hhahaahhhaahhahahaha...I should have known that you would keep attacking the source rather than the facts. The FACTS frame the argument.

As far as "stupid" youtube clips, just ignore them, bro. I ignore half the liberal responses on here because they are such off topic drivel. Are you getting paid to respond here?:roll:
