    Thanks to all for the advice.

    Took a walk and a long afternoon nap. It’s amazing what wears me out.

    @hillbilly … Pres. Bush inherited a budget surplus (that was his rationale for the tax cuts … govt took in more money than it needed, so let’s gove it bac to the American people). Problem with that argument was thatvwecwere in $5 trillion worth of debt at the time. The Bush tax cuts should have never happened and we should have used the budget surplus to help pay down the debt.

    And, I will add that Pres. Obama and the 2008-elected Congress in the 2010 lame duck session should have let every single one of the Bush tax cuts expire. They showed no political courage.

    That wasn’t an apology, it was a justification. It wasn’t “Sorry, I shouldn’t have used that term,” it was “It’s okay, I had a good reason! I was talking about a black guy that I DON’T like!” zzzz.

    “I bet some days you all sit back and read this post and go “What are these guys smoking” don’t you.”

    We do our best to not read these comments at all, but when you include my full name in a comment it thwarts my system of avoidance!

    WHY does TVByTheNumbers combine CNN & HLN? That skewers the true numbers of each.
    If I added Fox News & Fox Business, I will get these results:

    CNN/HLN: 101.12 million HHs

    FNC/FB: 215.45 million HHs

    Fox comes out double numbers of CNN & HLN.
    Combining only CNN & HLN skewers it so Fox New Chnnel is not #1 in that category.
    Please seriously consider listing each channel/network SEPARATELY. The same for all.
