    Sicilian–repeat–you don’t try to balance the budget in a bad recession or depression…when the economy starts humming, then you balance the budget….

  • Sicilian Papa

    The government is not bringing in enough money. How are you going to raise revenue?

    The interest on the debt will be unsustainable in a few years. What is the lefts answer to this problem. You have the White House, Senate, Left wing media, academia, and at least some of the big business backing you. You have the power. What is your answer?

  • Sicilian Papa

    Now there is an answer! I rest my case!

    Hey you guys won. We on the right are on our way out. We are just standing on the sidelines watching this train wreck. We have almost no power.

    I have lived long enough to know that liberalism and secularism will fail.

    Did you know that all those mass killers where secular, no God. If they where evangelical Christians the corrupt, left wing media would be screaming it from the roof tops.

  • usa8888

    Sicilian–you create jobs by fueling the economy temporarily by not cutting spending and thus not inhibiting job creation. As more jobs are created, the economy expands and then even more jobs are created, etc, etc, etc, When things are humming, you balance the budget and you are home free… tax money is pouring into the Treasury. It’s not like balancing your checkbook. If you treated it as such, the county would go under in a bad recession or depression.

  • usa8888

    Think about it, Sicilian–I am only in the 3rd grade and have to get up for school. Good night!

    Hillbilly and Apple, I predict that CNN ratings will beat FOX news rating for Morning the 21st.

    hillbilly I predict faith3 will give you another chance and go out with you. lol

  • ninja

    @ cathy……………….usa888?

  • AppleStinx


    I predict that your prediction will be right and that Hillbilly will cheat and still get it wrong. :grin:

  • cathy

    You are correct Ninja. I’ve been on a number of different boards and I can’t recall anyone that thinks they know as much as he.

    I just saw this and thought it was pretty good news for US foreign policy(as many know here I am no fan of Netanyahu and his hawkish ways and the way him and Aipac try to run US foreign policy)


    Netanyahu, allies narrowly cling to victory in Israeli election

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his hard-line allies fared far worse than expected in a parliamentary election Tuesday, likely forcing him to reach across the aisle to court a popular political newcomer to cobble together a new coalition.

    While Netanyahu appeared positioned to serve a third term as prime minister, the results marked a major setback for his policies and could force him to make new concessions to restart long-stalled peace talks with the Palestinians.

    More than 99 percent of the votes had been counted by Wednesday morning and results showed the hawkish and dovish blocs were split about evenly.

    I predicted CNN would win the inaugural coverage too. AppleStinx was scared to predict. Two losses in one week would ruin him. :cool:

    She’s to much for me to handle. I’m going back to chasing them 80 year old women. ;)

  • Hillbilly

    @Sicilian Papa

    Hope your wife to be let’s you keep your Friday night ritual. The one that involves Viagra & hookers. I’m guessing to told her about it. :grin:

    P.S. You are wasting your time trying to tell some folks the truth. They get their talking points from Rachel Maddow. If she doesn’t tell them, then it can’t be true. :???:


  • cathy

    @Sicilian Papa, take Hillbilly’s PS: advice. I know it’s hard at times to let posts go by. I’ve feed that troll to much myself. He throws out terms to imply he’s an expert on economics, investments, mathematics, physics, engineering, foreign policy, military, business, history, political science and on. But he fells apart when you get into the details. He can only give you Maddow and other MSNBC personalities talking points. Or he attacks people to try and get them to stop posting.

    I hate insomnia

    good night all

    Sicilian–don’t embarrass yourself with these Fox “News” absurd comments about “socialism.” You probably don’t even know what socialism is. Hint: Obama is a sociable person , not a socialist……

    Actually, by definition, Obama is a MARXIST…even you should know that…or maybe you aren’t that informed.
