“There ain’t no ticks like poly-ticks. Bloodsuckers all.” – Davy Crockett

$3,220,103,625,307.29….no, a rat’s not doing a tap dance on my number keys, that’s what the rats in congress have spent THIS YEAR.
Thank’s Mr. President and thank you Congress…for spending ten grand of my money!
Let’s see, is our current congress on the spendthrift side? They’ve only blown more money than all the congresses before…combined. How ludicrous is that? One more time, MORE MONEY THAN ALL THE OTHER CONGRESSES COMBINED! Three point two trillion.
This from the Patriot Update:
111th Congress Added More Debt Than First 100 Congresses Combined: $10,429 Per Person in U.S.
It’s been pretty obvious to me why Obama hasn’t released his birth certificate, his school records, or many of the official documents I find so necessary for ANY political candidate to release, much less a presidential candidate, …it’s because we’ll prove them false or that he’s embarrassed about them. Why not otherwise? I still find it astounding that even the most bleeding of liberals didn’t say, “hey, let’s see the stuff?” Now, even the most blockheaded of liberals, the “he sends a chill up my leg” Chris Matthews is beginning to wonder…keep it up Chris, “let’s see the stuff?”
Now that we’re coming into a period where the balance of power–Administrative, Judicial, Legislative—hopefully have different aims and goals, there’s hope that we can stop, or at least slow, this freight train of entitlement thinking that’s permeated the federal government for the last few decades. And it’s not been just the liberals at fault, the conservatives have been culpable as well.
And entitlement is the wrong word. Few that receive the federal largess are actually “entitled.” Rather they are the chosen, and chosen not necessarily because of need, but rather because of greed. Not just greed on their parts, but greed on the part of politicians wanting to buy votes and to guarantee their place in office by buying votes…with your money and mine.
“All the public business in Congress now connects itself with intrigues, and there is great danger that the whole government will degenerate into a struggle of cabals.” – John Quincy Adams (1767-1848) 6th US President
