    My Thoughts on how to Balance our Budget and to bring down our overall National Debt:

    1. By closing ALL loopholes and raising taxes, we can raise $1.4 Trillion a year

    2. By cutting Defense Spending in half, we can save $450 Billion a year

    3. By cutting Food Stamps in half, we only save $40 Billion a year

    If we do the first 2, we would balance our budget instantly and have a surplus that would bring our National Debt down to $0 in less than 20 years.

    Hey Mr. Coffee!!

    Sorry I missed you earlier, rather stressed on many levels, I suppose it is because its that time of year. Just need to get through this week…….ya know!! Need to figure out if its a “time” or “energy” thing. Since time is constant, it’s probably my energy.

    I know what you will say…..”drink coffee, lots of energy” ;)

    I heard that there will be a 9min preview trailer for the new ST Movie at IMAX theaters and 3 min trailers for regular theaters being shown before The Hobbit movie.

    I may go watch the trailer then walk out ;) Not a fan of The Lord of the Ring movies. WAAAY Overrated!

    Hope all is good with you and your loved ones.

    ===========

    LOVE IT!

    Chris Matthews just said Hannity has no brains!!! LOVE IT!!

    Debt ceiling debate twist: Sen. Mitch McConnell filibusters himself
    Yes, another debt-ceiling debate is looming, and the Senate’s attempt to deal with the issue Thursday involved complex legislative machinations that appeared to backfire on Mitch McConnell.

    WOW! What a bunch of clowns we have….

    McConnell was hoping to put Democrats in the awkward position of having to vote for ceding Congress’s authority over the debt ceiling to the president. As he put it in his morning remarks, “by demanding the power to raise the debt limit whenever he wants by as much as he wants, he showed what he’s really after is assuming unprecedented power to spend taxpayer dollars without any limit.”

    Senate majority leader Harry Reid (D) of Nevada objected, putting Democrats in the position of blocking a vote on their president’s proposal. Yet within hours, Democrats sensed a way to turn the tables – and were ready to call McConnell’s bluff.

    They returned to the floor and offered to bring the matter up for a vote immediately, concluding that, politically speaking, they would be happy to argue that fixing the debt ceiling permanently was the fiscally responsible thing to do – even at the cost of congressional authority.

    “Our downgrade of America’s credit rating was not based on the state of our economy but the debt-ceiling debate,” said Sen. Dick Durbin (D) of Illinois to reporters after the affair. “We are paying dearly for that already. So the Republicans are creating a situation which makes reducing the debt and deficit extremely difficult by creating this uncertainty about the debt ceiling.”

    So what did Mitch McConnell do, facing a vote on his own suggestion from just hours before?

    He offered two magic words – “I object” – and filibustered his own suggestion.

    With that move, the threshold to pass the bill jumped from a simple majority to 60 votes and the vote was abandoned, though Senator Reid promised to push for a vote on the matter in the weeks to come.

    The result? The entire debt-ceiling debate had gone no further than it started the day.

    By raising taxes to what? 250%? Instead of making insane claims, try doing the math…let me guess…you got your numbers from Rachel Maddow. It sounds as stupid as something she would claim.

    I CANT TAKE IT:: Pres. Obama met with Al Sharpton to sell his tax scheme…Al Sharpton, who keeps getting leins on his assets because he doesnt pay his taxes…Al Sharpton has never paid his taxes, he gets his followers to pay them and all fines…Al Sharpton who owes big money for campaign improprieties….please Lord, who writes these comic books??

    Is it really any worse than having tax cheat Geitner telling the rest of us how we should accept tax hikes? lol

    Chris Matthews needs to stop looking in the mirror when he mentions someone else’s name…I got rocks in the back yard that are more intelligent than Chris Matthews.

    @StanT “By raising taxes to what? 250%? Instead of making insane claims, try doing the math…let me guess…you got your numbers from Rachel Maddow. It sounds as stupid as something she would claim.”

    -No way, Rachel would kick my azz if she heard that I wanted to close ALL loopholes and deductions because many of those affect the middle class as well as the rich. She also wouldn’t be too happy that I want to return back to the Clinton rates for everybody, including the middle class and the poor.

    -By the way, I did do the math. And no, I don’t use Republican math.

    Actually it’s a respected man in the media, versus a man (Hannity) who’s abit of a hack.

  • Moncon

    Chris Matthews a respected man in the media?…………hahahahaha! Thanks for the first laugh of my day!

    Matthews was “so glad we had the storm [Sandy]” and he’s respected man in the media while Hannity is a “bit of a hack”… ok … it says a lot about the “media”. :wink:

  • AppleStinx

    Here comes that rainy day feeling again. Oh no – it’s just Chris Matthews talking. :grin:

  • Doug Z

    Revisions brought worse news. 49,000 fewer jobs were created in September and October than originally reported.

    But we’ve been hustled and bamboozled by the media into believing any number over 100,000 represents a recovery, when prior recoveries have given us 300,000-plus new jobs per month. Those recoveries, however, were generated by the government getting out of the way of the economy. Obama’s bright idea was to micromanage, deficit spend, and hyper-regulate.

    But in order to protect Obama from his failure, an entire New Normal and standard for success has been manufactured by a media that will never-ever allow this president to fail, even when he does.

  • Doug Z

    As far as the unemployment rate falling to 7.7%, once again it’s due to the fact that people have given up looking for work, In November alone, a whopping 540,000 dropped out of the workforce. We’re not seeing a drop in unemployment because people are finding work; we’re seeing a drop in the unemployment rate because people have given up:

  • RedBarSoup

    Don’t worry guys, we got the GOP here to save us. They are so smart and out there for us that the GOP filibustered THEMSELVES on the debt ceiling.

  • Doug Z

    Confused why the unemployment rate dropped? The same, favorite BLS adjustment – a drop in the labor force participation rate which declined by 0.2% to 63.6% once again, as the number of people out of the labor increased by over 540K to 88,883,000.ber, the labor participation rate dropped (a bad thing) two-tenths of a point to 63.6%, a three decade low.
