    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.


    Dude…go look at the facts…there are FEWER people working today than when Obumbles took office four years ago…if your math were correct, then $6 Trillion later, we should have had MORE people working….that’s the problem with liberals, they just can’t do math.

  • Coffee Steve

    Good Morning Crew


    Who will answer :-) That was fun to listen too.

    In 3-4 weeks you’ll be forgetting about Winter. Its going to be an early Spring for you and us. I can’t wait either, my Electric Bill was around $300.00 and we’re gone alot and don’t really use that much. Shut offs are at record numbers around here.

  • Letmethink

    What are shut offs coffee? Is that part of the smart meter?

  • Coffee Steve

    Good Morning

    People that can’t pay their bills and get the service shut off, and it doesn’t matter if it 20 below, around here if your 10 days late past the due date you get shut off

  • Coffee Steve


    There are some smart meters in Louisville, and they are talking about expanding them, if they do, I may just buy a huge genny and a few small ones and forget the electric company :-)

  • Letmethink

    Oh that is sad. Yes the smart meters worry me also
    Gone for the day

  • Mikey O

    @USA888 What the debt doesnt matter ?? why do you think the feds are keeping rates so low until 2015. We are still paying billions just on interest on the debt with low rates, if rates go to 3% and that still low most of the money taken in by taxes will have to go and paid just interest on the debt. If spending money creates jobs with 4 years of record spending why is the job rate still so high ?? Why is gas prices so high now no supply problems and demand is low? Oil is paid in US dollars and the value of the dollar has drop from printing so much money. I know you will said no inflation beacuse take out food and engery from the core no problem. If what the media is reporting is true hosuing is picking up. Then you will have housing, food and engery rising but not wages so you have Stag-flation. Since we have consumer base economy and consumers have less money to spend looks like another recession.

    Goood Morning!!
    8 degrees, 3 more inches of snow, and the lake effect warning continues throughout the day! It dont get better than this!
    As the traffic alert texts were coming to my phone this morning one after another it became official, there was no way to get there from here! :lol:

    Hillary on the hot seat today. My prediction of what she will say…………”I knoooooow NOTHING!!! I see NOTHING!……….Hoooooooo-gaaaaaaan!” :shock:

  • Ratboy

    It is so cold outside I actually saw a gangsta teenager pull his pants up!!! :lol:

  • rikki raccoon

    MSNBC got destroyed.The pathetic CNN has almost caught them.Too,too funny.

  • Coffee Steve

    Hillary on the hot seat today. My prediction of what she will say

    After she gets done we’ll know less than we did before she spoke :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    I have a confession, I do play dirty sometimes,:-) we went out to round up some homeless people last night and took them to a shelter to stay warm, one guy got sassy with me and said “I ain’t going unless you buy me dinner”

    I have done this before, what he didn’t know was I bought some carry out meals from a local resturant and when he said that I said Look! I already have you a good roast meal for you, he just smiled and said, “I’m glad you listened to me boy” hopped in and away we went ROTFLMBO

    I have a confession, I do play dirty sometimes

    :lol: many years ago I would go on help calls for drunks that needed to get to the program. I would be sober of course and tell the guy how long etc. They would look at me and say “I aint goin unless I get at least one more drink!” I would reach into my coat an pull out a bottle of vodka and hand it to him. They would always say “If you are sober why do you have vodka?” My answer would be “to keep drunks like you happy!”

  • Coffee Steve

    My answer would be “to keep drunks like you happy!” ROTF

    Truthfully, you’d expect if one did not do this kind of stuff often for the homeless people to be depressed, sad and not happy at all. In many cases thats just not true. Many of them who have nothing inspire me in ways they could never dream and they pick up my spirits more than we do theirs.

    In life and my work and travels I have found everyone has their own personal crutch, problems is everyone is so keen about picking on someone elses they forget to work on their own. I have preached many times how many always looks to someone elses sin, to make them feel better about their own.

    It doesn’t work that way :mrgreen:

  • Coffee Steve

    How cold is it?

    We let our dog stay in overnight the past 2 nights, I go to let her out to do her thing a few ago, she just sits at the door and stares at me as if to say, uh, huh sure…

    BBL… School Bell is ringing

  • Ratboy

    @ Coffee Steve
    I have preached many times how many always looks to someone elses sin, to make them feel better about their own

    i look at it this way, I better not judge the sins of others because there is a pretty good chance that back in the day of drinks, pills, and happy smoke I may have very well done the same things or worse but just cant recall it! :shock:

  • Sicilian Papa



    Global Warming, 6 degrees here in Conn. I told a lie today just so my pants would be on fire.

  • Jeff

    A Ratturd trying to predict what Hillary is going to say…. Still deep issues with women in power. Not too bright!!

    Hillary testifying today proves that Republicans are pussies!! They duck and hide behind lawyers or demand private testimony.

    The message is clear. The Republican controlled house prevented the State Dept. from getting the funds they needed to secure US facilities.

  • Ratboy

    I was 100% right!! When asked just now about who sent Susan Rice out with the talking point……………she has NO idea! :lol: :lol: :lol: by the way it took her about 3 minutes to say that!!

  • Ratboy
