Financial judgement day

Many times when politicians are trying to ram new spending through, they like to cite the-- and they always say --the numbers from the "non-political" Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

Now, we know everything is Washington D.C. is political. Bureaucrats who run the government are all government union workers and tell me which way they lean.


The Democrats when they were ramming through Obamacare gave the fictitious numbers to work with and the CBO bought it hook, line and sinker. But now, even these sleeping federal workers are starting the smell the coffee.

CNS reports The United States faces "fundamental fiscal challenges" stemming from the growth in spending for Social Security and major health care programs," CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf told a gathering in Washington on Tuesday.

The rising cost of those programs leaves Americans with "unpleasant" choices to make, but the sooner they're made, the better, he said:

"So we have a choice as a society to either scale back those programs relative to what is promised under current law; or to raise tax revenue above its historical average to pay for the expansion of those programs; or to cut back on all other spending even more sharply than we already are," Elmendorf said.

Where were these guys three and a half years ago. We have spent ourselves out of house and home.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

News flash.. No Justice Department Charges Against Ohio Woman Who Voted Six Times for Obama.

Melowese Richardson admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. 410 days later and still Obama's justice dept. has done nothing.

Why? Cause that is how he got elected!

Just like the Black Panthers with clubs at Pennsylvania voting polls, it's Democrat thug nation.

Hope and change in 2014. A big Republican congress is the goal

So idiot, you noticed my head was NOT in the sand like yours?

See my granddaddy told me those who just issue press releases for Banjo have their heads in the sand, and all that does is make them good targets.

Hope for change in 2014. Banjo and Co. need to go.

And idiot... your hero, Dollar Bill Clinton, was a proved draft dodger, liar, adulterer, & perjurer as well as molester of women.

Nugent never has been shown to be a pedophile.

idiot, the Crimea is just the start. Banjo O's vacillation and hesitations are taken throughout the world as a SIGN OF WEAKNESS. It's the message he sends. Many nations have agreements with us and at the same time they have issues with tyrants.

By not showing a strong united front this allows tyrants across the world to see they now have an opportunity to advance their agendas.

That's how BIG WARS START.

Unlike what Banjo O, the community organizer, thinks, tyrants cannot be talked to stop.

And note folks... it was a DEMOCRAT that got us into the KOREAN and VIETNAM war.

Hope for change in 2014. Send Democrats to the bread line.

"intelligence of an amoeba".. but if that is true, how come he has big bucks and you don't idiot?

Yes we've been at war... Bush got on TV right after 9/11 and TOLD US it was going to be a long long war. He didn't hid it.

Banjo Obama will get is into a REAL BIG war. We swore we would not get into one BEFORE WW1. We swore we would not get into a war BEFORE WW2 (notice Democrats were running the government BOTH TIMES.)

Banjo, by appearing weak, invites Tyrants to act.

Hope for change in 2014!

News flash.. Global Warmest, lead by Al Gore, believe in fake 'hocky stick' data, data they admit was juggled to show rise in global tempatures. Yes say they believe their own fake data they admit was fake (once they were exposed with emails that were leaked.)

Yet now it has been shown there has been NO WARMING trend for the last 17 years.

Talk about false gods...

"Cut the Pentagon budget $50 B & leave Medicare alone."

With all the world problems, Putin in the Ukraine, China's many disputes with Korea, Japan, Philippines, etc.., and then Iran and North Korea and you want to cut the defense budget more?

idiot.. the more weak we become the more likely we will have WAR. We have treaties with Nato (many countries in Europe) and those in Asia and the Pacific, ANZUS being just one.


Hope for change in 2014. Vote Dems out.

In case you haven't noticed Deaf, this nation has been at war for the last 15 years. Go clean your handgun and dream about the day when you could buy ammo.

Wasn't it you just yesterday who faulted Neil for casting judgment on all because of the statement of one? And weren't you the one who supported the warmers when you first attacked industry pollution and compared climate change to the Cuyahoga River fire ? And if you want to talk about nutty politicians, how about Sheila Jackson D. Texas ?

Not surprised. I call the CBO the "Cook Books Office" You can make the figures look however you want them to look for your politician. I'm unsure that it all wasn't planned in the long run. The people will now be controlled. The American people will miss the Constitution and Bill of Rights. If the president can go around Congress and the Supreme Court without being challenged, then the people will be in chains from here on out. It's called being a slave to the state.

Mr. Idiot, will we still get our Obamaphone ?

Our current income tax system is not much more than a robin hood scheme. There are people who get back more than they pay in. The same can be said for the governments ponzi schemes Social Security and Medicare. There are people who receive benefits without paying into the system. Reagan raided the SS program and put the surplus in the general fund. A one time gimmick to balance the budget. What Bush senior called voodoo economics. Just pass a graduated flat tax. No refunds, no returns.

Social Security trust fund never existed, and it's said Johnson raided the fund to pay for Vietnam. And what in the heck do you mean by a graduated flat tax? Sounds like an oxymoron.

News flash...

"A federal judge has ruled that Kansas and Arizona should be allowed to require voters to provide evidence of U.S. citizenship, in a case closely watched by both sides dealing with the question of voter eligibility."

Sooner or later you Democrats won't have any more dead people or illegals or ex-cons or double voters to vote for you, what then?

Meanwhile, the programmable electronic voting machine determines the outcome. Smoke and mirrors Deaf, while you watch who votes and who doesn't, the machine steals the election. If you can't believe that our system is so corrupt that our vote is meaningless then, study the 2013 Iowa primaries .

You wonder why Banjo Obama and the Democrats are trying to DEMOBILIZE the military while Putin invades countries, Syria ignores their agreements, Iran still trying to make the BOMB, and North Korea firing missiles? Why?

Cause Obamacare is going to bankrupt the USA. The young are opting OUT of Obamacare (and that was where the cash cow was) and thus high expenses.. low income.

Hope for change in 2014. We need Republican TOTAL control of house and senate to stop this.

I believe nothing reported by government or their media.
