In the interest of fairness, let's start with GW. He goes to Africa and announces he is going to donate $30 Billion to help fight AIDS. While this may be a good cause, I don't think it is written in the constitution that a president can pick a charitable cause and give our tax money to it. If we have an extra $30 billion laying around, I'm sure it could be put to good use right here at home. And I doubt that the leaders of the recipient nations will actually spent ALL that money fighting AIDS.

Obama decided we will give 7/10 of 1% of the GNP to the (corrupt) United Nations to fight poverty world-wide. Doesn't sound like a whole lot, until you do the math. Based on the 2006 GNP, that would be $77 Billion dollars. Another nice charitable contribution, except it is not his money to donate...it belongs to the American taxpayer.

Obama's wife decided to let the whole world know that until he got into this campaign, she was NEVER proud of this country. I'm assuming that "for the first time in my adult life" means that it had never happened before.

Since we all know about Hillary's desire to redistribute the wealth of the country with her socialist tactics, I'm not even going there this time. (too easy, anyway!)

I'm actually beginning to think that in spite of his leftish leanings, McCain may be the only candidate who doesn't follow the teachings of Marx!

What are these people thinking???? Or are they even thinking at all??? /ccboard/images/graemlins/mad.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/mad.gif

I see your point...a billion here, and a billion there, and pretty soon it adds up to some real money...

I thought so too, but:

"Did Dirksen ever say, " A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you're talking real money"? (or anything very close to that?)

Perhaps not. Based on an exhaustive search of the paper and audio records of The Dirksen Congressional Center, staffers there have found no evidence that Dirksen ever uttered the phrase popularly attributed to him.

Archivists undertook the search after studying research statistics showing that more than 25 percent of inquiries have to do with the quote or its variations."

A lot of quotes attributed to folks are wrong but I loved his voice. Wasn't he Tipper Gore's Dad? Maybe I'm remembering wrong. I share old age brain damage with you. I just cover the South where you have the Great Northwest. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

this is what a billion is about;

Billion;

The next time you hear a politician use the word "billion" in a casual manner, think about whether you want the "politicians" spending... YOUR tax money.

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of its releases.

A. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

B. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

C. A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone age.

D. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.

E. A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.

I'm afraid our recent Republican led Congress, and current Republican Administration, have made the word billion obsolete in Political discussions.


It would seem that trillion is now far more appropriate when discussing spending, budgets and policies.


It would be interesting to read an annalogy such as yours using trillion as the starting point, to accomodate our present Republican economic policies.

The social entitlements that Hillary and Barack are proposing will cost the taxpayers about a $Trillion.

I wish one of the moderators in tonight's debate would ask both of them where the money will come from to pay for the programs they are pushing.

Well you know the answer would be the same nonsensical pabulum That Gayle is always peddling, "the rich are not paying their fair share".
Never mind that the facts show the exact opposite.

Our debt accumulation is nearing ten trillion dollars. Do you ever wish someone would ask George Bush how he proposes that the country can plow its way out of the massive debt under which he has burried this country?

I don't suppose any of you righties on here are interested in addressing the mess this country is in right now, thanks to Bush?

Did you know that Bill Clinton created more jobs than Reagan and both Bush's combined? That he moved more people into jobs, and off welfare than any president in history? That he was able to reach across the isle and balance the budget, and managed to leave office with a surplus?

I find it amusing how all of you from the right are A-OK with George Bush driving this country into a virtual debt emergency, for no purpose, and no advantages, to us, supposedly to help Iraqis, but the idea of our country reaching out to help people who are in dire straights, Americans, is out of the question in your view, and not to be given a chance.

What do you think happens to a country's economy when there is a massive decline among its population? When people start going down the tubes, the momentum becomes threatening to the entire economy. Atleast the Democrats are discussing the threats to America's future, instead of pretending that they don't exist, like Bush and the Republicans have done, and continue to do, regardless of the dire curcumstances we are facing.



You all need to go back and study Eisenhower's admonishments regarding the Military Industrial Complex. He was the only honest Republican president of my lifetime.

Gayle your partisanship is clouding your judgement. Here is another way for you to read Steve's posts...Given the heavy debt that we are already in with a long road ahead of us to try and dig out, just how do the current candidates expect to pay for all their "new additional" expenditures?

Keep on subject.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">That he was able to reach across the isle and balance the budget, and managed to leave office with a surplus?</div></div>This is the biggest lie the sheep of the left have ever latched on to.

Since Bush only has a few months left, I'm not really to concerned with what he is going to do to fix the problem. I am, however, interested in what those who would want to be in office for the next 4 years plan to do. If their plan is to take us even farther in debt, I don't think that's a good thing.

The more I study Obama, the more concerned I become. His ties to the Democratic Socialists of America are a huge red flag. His plan to give tax breaks to "patriotic corporations" is nothing more than an attempt to give unions a stronger position in the country. Hillary is no better. Both seem to think that Washington should be responsible for everyone in the country. McCain is willing to give amnesty to illegal aliens.
I have serious concerns for the direction this country might go in the next few years.

FACTS!

What is this complicated language use in front of our leftist friends.

To use the MOONBAT dictionary:

Fact:
1 - Any statement by a DNC member.
2 - Any statement that lends itself to communal howling of B-B-B-BUT B-B-B-BOOOOSH!

Lie:
1 - Any statement by a non moonbat.
2 - Any statement that doesn't lend itself to communal howling of B-B-B-BUT B-B-B-BOOOOSH!

I know what this "rightie" is going to do about our problems....
I'm going to vote for Obama or Hillary. I'm actually hopeful they will both be on the same ticket so I can vote for both at the same time. I would suggest which one should be at the top of the ticket, but then I would likely be portrayed as a sexist or racists. Therefore, I'll leave it to them to work out the details.
Once they are in office, they will provide free everything to everybody! Did you read about the recent "dirty needle" clinics in Vegas? We can all share dirty needles with our new health care policy. Talk about our gadzillion dollar debt now...you ain't seen nothin' yet! I'm going to quit working for the private sector and go to work for the federal government. Job security! And regardless if my taxes go up or down, I can rest assured that my salary comes from all taxpayers anyway. And when I retire, I know the Dems will also take care of me. After all, they have promised me entitlements, and I have a right to those entitlements regardless of anything I do or don't do, have or don't have! I've just decided I want my piece of the pie too! And if you don't get your piece soon enough, I may advocate for your slice of the pie too!
Anyway, just wanted to share with you guys what I'm going to do! My wife and I were just complaining about our "entitlement" society and how it's getting worse all the time....she really sees it in her work. But hey, why fight it when you can join it! As to you guys who want to remain independent, conservative, capitalistic pigs I just want to say one thing....work harder suckers....keep working harder. Don't expect a thank you, but you can count on "us" demanding more.

Do you ever think about adding any intelligent comments, or are you stuck in the drivel mode?
I have expressed many concerns over the way the government has been running for more than the past 8 years. Election time gives us the opportunity to try and get things right, although with the choice of candidates we have been given, I don't feel really hopeful.
What have you done for the past 8 years beside fill this board with stupid little digs at other posters?
Grow up!
