You really didn't expect this to work?

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

I remember a while back when Congress was fighting about the the budget.

If the entire body can't do a deal, why would any rational person think this super committee could do it any better.

What a waste of time and a joke. Another washing, kick the can down the road, blue-ribbon committee.

And the reason the can't come to a decision is that same ideological opinions they had months ago when things stalemated.

Pundits, sooth-sayers and national media cannot stand it when something is not in motion.

I have heard several people who I thought knew better have said repeatedly, when those guys go to Washington they should always be doing stuff.

Well, they have, but raising taxes and growing government is not always the answer. We've done that for 50 years.

What did they get up? A 15 trillion dollar tab and a super committee.

We are at an impasse right now and our founding father who set up this system made sure it's usually tough to get legislation through.

And now, since the super committee could not cone up with an answer, the trigger gets pulled.

One of the biggest areas affected, the Pentagon. But, not until next year. Next year is an eternity in politics.

After the election next year, lets see who wants to cut what.

And, as far as the Pentagon, I'm sure there are floors of paper pushers who we could live without.

But I don't want one bullet to evaporate from our fighting men and women.

But, don't get too bummed by the super committee.

Did anyone really think this would work?

That's my POV, what's yours?

My comments reflect the response to the spiritual war that the secularist wage every time they claim to separate our Church from state, then try to make the state the new church from whom all our blessings must flow. run by 2 dimensional secular self-Gods who think thehy are fit to determine the outcomes of personal lives and our Christian based society. When you denigrate us with names like Teavangelicals or Perverted :Tea bagger: comments, of course it's just politics,,,,NOT.

If government is the paltform of the people and you wish to separate Church from state then get your bankrupting socialist politics and your financially bankrupting ideology of playing God out of the mercy business which belongs to the Church and which the government consistantly proves itself unfit to dispense on any fair way with your dishones and unequal appropriation and resistribution of honest wealth. Try getting government back into the business of Justice for which it WAS designed.

You think you can infuse your Socialist ideology into the political arena and attack our Christian beliefs with impunity; you obviously have not met any Christians of the warrior class who will defeat you and your dishonest ideology at every turn. When it comes to the ideological rape of a nation you bet it becomes personal when you see 200 years of prosperity stolen and spent by wastrel Socialists who believe they ARE GOD.

Hunger motivates, and your self-god failed 50 year war on poverty based on an ideology of poverty has motivated legions of newly created socialist made poor to go to the polls and defeat you. All politics is local and all politics is personal, so if you and your empty socialist secular ideology recipe of failure cannot take the political heat, then you need to take it out of the American kitchen where the cream is allowed to rise to the top in freedom.

Go take your ideology to the water closet and place it into the toilet where it belongs, where your ideology only allows your socialist turds, like our President and former speaker to rise to the top of the socialist toilet bowl your ideology creates.

Snydergal,,,It is YOUR Socialist DOGma that continuously gets run over by Tea Party Constitutional CARma because when Americans lay down with the Big Socialist Dogs, all we arise with are Big Socialist moral and financial blood sucking fleas.

BigD...my comments were directed at political issues...you chose to draw faith into the mix and to call my personal faith into the conversation. Under NO circumstances are you going to be allowed to challenge my personal beliefs or those of anyone else...government is the business of the people, not a platform for any one religion's dogmatic beliefs. Personal attacks reflect on those who churn them out, and yours reflect a person who is full of bitterness, hatred, fear and venomous vitriol.

Teavangelical/repub,,,Snyder gal,,did you get that one right out of the Democrat talking points or your liberal collecge professor? You two dimensional secular people of the Body and mind will never beat a conservative three dimensional Christian of the body, mind and spirit. You are just outclassed which is why you have to join soclialist collectives to gang up on others you would never be able to defeat in honest one on one competition. I doubt you have ever even read the Constitution.

It is the enforcement of our Constitution that is what the TEA PARTY is all about, and had you Court packing Liberals not abrogated it's very spirit at every turn to deny the will of the people with Judicial and executive FIAT, there would be no need for a Tea Party. Our Tea party resembles the spirit of the Boston Tea and the son's of Liberty. Your Liberal insane Democrat Tea Parties resemble a drugged out Lewis Carol and his Alice in wonderland party of Mad Hatters and son's of Bitches

Alice: “If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn’t be, and what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?”
Enter Pelosi;
“In our recovery package we put new standards of accountability and transparency, which we hope will now apply.” (Solyndra, Fast and Furious)
“Every week we don’t pass a Stimulus package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.” (U.S. Pop only 300 Mil)

“I believe in natural gas as a clean, cheap alternative to fossil fuels. It’s cheap, abundant and clean compared to fossil fuels.” ( Natural Gas is a Fossil fuel)

“We have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities. Stock market profits taxes could go a long ways to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as “Americans.”" (Illegal aliens are “Americans”?)

Any Sane Party becomes the party of NO, once they have been fleeced and taxed beyond anything our Founders envisioned. Our founders were to party of NO when King George likewise oppressed the people with taxes. Just name me one Unconstitutional thing about the Tea Party and I will cite you 10 that the Socialist Democrats have violated. But I HAVE READ the Constitution unlike you, or you would be joining the TEA Party, not denigrating it. Or is your brain on par with Pelosi?

Doggone right I expected this to work! But...because the party of "NO," the teavangelical ultra-conservative evangelical right, repubs who signed a contract with norquist that trumps the Constitution of the United States, what we've faced in the last year will pale compared to what is coming...the absolute worst thing that could happen to this country would be a teavangelical/repub in the White House and Congress to continue under teavangelical/repub control. OBAMA 11/4/2012.

Close/eliminate/defund every federal department that in any way interferes with states' sovereignty and this country will benefit immensely!!

Ron Paul is America's last hope

To continue to trust our hard earned tax dollars to politictians who have already proved they are inept is just adding more insanity to Einstein's quote about continuing to do the same thing over and over and expecting different results. When we finally get Conservative leadership in 2012 who can understand the difference between cultivatiing wealth CONSUMING Government paper pushing jobs, and cultivating wealth CREATING Jobs, only then will the economy begin to turn.

The current fools only continue to make Socialist warfare on our business community.You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity, nor can you multiply wealth by dividing it. Socialism is not the redistribution of wealth. It is the redistribution of poverty. Its goal is to make everybody equally miserable. Government cannot give to anybody that which they have not taken from another. Liberalism is the pillow of the lazy mind and the couch of the lazy.
