    @cathy One other thing on Reagan congress which controls the purse strings was controlled by democrats. He also started the end of the cold war through his star wars program which provided the peace divendens for Bill Clinton.

  • mikeyO

    @Mark2 Seem like a reasonable budget, dont know if this was an oversight but if you get rid of the tax loops holes and welfare for corporation, you would need to change the tax rate from 35% highest in the world to say 25% if not this would effect GDP growth. Also dont think stock market would like 29% rate on LT gains this would effect investment & growth. Rate somewhere between 20-25%. Also LT gains rate for person making 100K or less a year should be 10- 15 % this you get younger people to invest and elder people on fix incomes that have investments wouldn’t effect them. Still need to structure changes to entiltements. Means testing and rasing the age would have to be in the mix. Also change to Congress perks pacakge one would be they have to work 15 years in congress to get 50% of pay at retirement. Current they get 100% for 6 years of service. Our Military retirement is 20 years and 50% of their base paid. I wouldnt give them a retirement package this should be a public service.

    Gooooooooooood Morning MickeyO and Everyone

    This is a “The Truth Hurts” one

    *Dems complain about presence of debt clock on Capitol Hill… :shock:

    Pravda maybe tells the truth every now and then?

    *World’s first space tourist plans privately-funded mission to MARS…
    Wants to be at Mars in 5-6 years

    *John Boehner: House Won’t Pass Another Sequester Bill Until Senate ‘Gets Off Their A*s And Passes It Once’ :shock: Sometimes the truth hurts LOL

    *House Democrats propose Department of Peacebuilding
    (Good luck with that one)

  • Coffee Steve

    I get sooooo confused sometimes
    *Obama: As president, ‘you can’t do things by yourself’

    So? You can’t yell fire in a crowded theater? Even with free speech? k, then how bout this one?
    *US imam calls on Muslims in US to wage jihad

    Around here and a few places in the State many Gun shops have signs up, “Cannot keep up with demand” Thank You :-)

  • Mikey O

    Good morning Coffee Steve. Its getting crazy out here, ICE over the weekend
    releases thousands of criminal immigrants because of sequester cuts in the state of AZ. One of the immigrants releases according to the NY times was in for child abuse and domestic violence. The insane part since this was done on a weekend they were paid overtime. :( How the heck does that help the budget ???? Its insane to let them out anyway, but couldnt the do it durning the week and not paid overtime ? ICE didnt notify the local law enforcement about the release.

  • Coffee Steve


    Had a fellow reporter go down to Arizona and Texas to do a story on border crossings a little over a year ago, there are some areas (in the USA) that post signs “Do Not Enter Area” or “Enter At Your Own Risk”.

    The drug lords send people over the border and in some areas American’s cannot even use the land for anything.

    To me the whole thing is a Joke, Washington hasn’t a clue. When myself or the wife travels out of the country we must have all legal papers on hand or be arrested, yet we are telling the ones that don’t obey the law Oh its fine come on in?

    I dare anyone in the media or anyone that approves of this junk to show some guts and back it up, walk into Mexico and without papers and watch what happens. They’ll be lucky if they see daylight for 5 years.

  • Ratboy

    Goood Morning!!
    Got about 4 inches of heart attack snow!!! still snowing but I dont know how much more we are supposed to get!
    I am tooooo old for this @#$%^&&^^%$#$##$%^&&***

  • Mikey O

    @Coffee Steve Washington is cluess and stupid, they say the immigrants released are still schedule for deporation. I will make a prediction on the number that will show up for their deporation hearing ZERO. On this immigrantion reform bill they also need to speed up /cut the time it take to deport someone.

  • Coffee Steve


    I have asked myself and my wife a hundred times why we haven’t moved futher south, I stay because of my kids and grand kids and thats the ONLY thing keeping me here

  • Mikey O

    Good Morning Ratboy Sorry to hear that snow:( Just got rain here suppose to get to 60 today all the hot air and crap from washington DC must be keeping us warm.

  • Coffee Steve

    up for their deporation hearing ZERO

    100% agree

  • Coffee Steve

    Oh boy another Joy

    Louisville starts the Kentucky Derby 2 week celebration with Thunder over Louisville, they have an amazing air show during the day and now, with the cuts? The Military may not have the funds to show up. Going to be a dull show this year, But if thats what it takes, then let it be. Time to cut everything across the board.

    *Thunder Over Louisville air show may lose military planes to budget cuts


  • Cathy

    Good Morning everyone.

    I’m tired of hearing about polls showing that the GOP will be blamed for the sequester. I’ve emailed Pew and other polls asking what states the polls are being done in. The percentage of republicans vs democrats, the percentage of red districts vs blue districts.

    Only Pew responded saying that these are national polls, meaning that people from at least three states were polled. They don’t look at the way the district or state voted and they didn’t ask party affiliations for this poll. I’m not saying Pew or others just went after democrats only to get the numbers they wanted but that the location and party affiliation is always important to know.

    Members of congress don’t care what the nation thinks of them. They are accountable to their state or district only. Show us were congress men and women are losing the support of their state or district.

    Morning all

    But just wait!! If public opinion starts saying it was the best thing since sliced bread, King Obama will do a nationwide tour saying it was his idea and see how good it worked!!!!!
