As I’ve said time and time and time again, it’s not entitlements. Social Security brings in more than it pays out. Until the fed cuts spending, we’re doomed as an economy. What is it about spend more than you make don’t they understand? I’m incensed at the fed and every memeber of congress and the administration, and at the public unions who are, in no uncertain terms, Anti-American, for if you’re destroying America, what else could you be?
Spending, not entitlements, created huge deficit
August 24, 2011
From Patriot Update:
There’s no doubt federal spending has exploded in recent years. In fiscal 2007, the last year before things went haywire, the government took in $2.568 trillion in revenues and spent $2.728 trillion, for a deficit of $160 billion. In 2011, according to Congressional Budget Office estimates, the government will take in $2.230 trillion and spend $3.629 trillion, for a deficit of $1.399 trillion.
That’s an increase of $901 billion in spending and a decrease of $338 billion in revenue in a very short time. Put them together, and that’s how you go from a $160 billion deficit to a $1.399 trillion deficit.
There is no line in the federal budget that says “stimulus,” but Obama’s massive $814 billion stimulus increased spending in virtually every part of the federal government. “It’s spread all through the budget,” says former Congressional Budget Office chief Douglas Holtz-Eakin. “It was essentially a down payment on the Obama domestic agenda.” Green jobs, infrastructure, health information technology, aid to states — it’s all in there, billions in increased spending.
Spending for Social Security and Medicare did go up in this period — $162 billion and $119 billion, respectively — but by incremental and predictable amounts that weren’t big problems in previous years. “We’re getting older one year at a time, and health care costs grow at 7 or 8 percent a year,” says Holtz-Eakin. If Social Security and Medicare were the sole source of the current deficit, it would be a lot smaller than it is.
Came to me on the web. I have not verified this, maybe you have?
Since when does a plain wedding band need repairs, along with your watch, for a whole month?
Another piece falls into place. In a press conference last week Obama was not wearing his wedding ring nor was he wearing his watch.
When noticed, his staff said his ring was out for repairs. No reason was given for the missing watch.
So it’s just a coincidence that Muslim men are forbidden from wearing jewelry during the month of Ramadan. We know he’s a committed Christian “cause he said so during his campaign!” Yeah, RIGHT !!
This is the same president that spent the Christmas holidays in Hawaii to avoid religious obligations as PRESIDENT at the White House.
Let’s just face the facts and quit trying to distort the truth, we have a Muslim for president in the White House, and he has no knowledge of American history.
Hey guys we need to pay attention, Muslims will soon rule the world if we don’t. Put God first in your life and above all others.
Please pass this on to believers of what is happening to our Great Nation and to those who are still in denial!!
Ramadan began Monday, August 01, 2011 and ends Tuesday, August 30, 2011.
In 511 days you can make a change that may be the most important vote you make in your lifetime. It’s time to bring self-reliance back to our democracy, our republic, it’s time to stand up and be counted.

I don’t know how many billions it took to bring Gaddafi down, but I do know it cost Americans a lot of money at a time when we couldn’t afford the expense. I despised and hated the slime ball, and hope that another slime ball doesn’t take his place…but I’ll be surprised if that’s not exactly what happens. It’s time this country turned inward, it’s time America looked out for Americans. Libya is rich with oil, but we won’t benefit from it, no matter who’s in power.
After almost 30 days traveling Alaska, the Yukon, and BC, it’s good to be almost home. Even traveling with the camper it’s a very expensive trip, particularly when your dropping a Franklin in the gas tank on a daily basis. However, that said, if you haven’t seen Alaska, the Yukon, or at least Banff and Jasper parks in BC, you have yet to be awed. As much as I love Glacier, the Canadian Rockies are a must, must, must see. Make sure it’s on your bucket list. I have lots of pics and will be posting them on my facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1337653879) and a video (or two or three) of the trip. Wow. But it was great to cross the border into the good old USA, no matter how much the libs have screwed her up.
The knee-jerk reactions are rampant. This from the NRA:
This week, the NRA and countless Americans offered prayers and condolences for those killed and wounded during the senseless assassination attempt on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).
Yet while those of us who defend the Second Amendment were respecting the heartache of the people of Tucson and waiting to learn the full facts of the case, anti-gun activists were renewing their push for more gun control laws. (“In the wake of these kind of incidents, the trick is to move quickly,” the Violence Policy Center’s Kristen Rand told MSNBC.)
Rand and other gun ban advocates were quick to push several schemes.
The most widely publicized is the proposal by Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) to re-impose the 1994 ban on new manufacture of ammunition magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition, and to criminalize the transfer of existing magazines between law-abiding gun owners. These magazines are standard equipment for self-defense handguns and other firearms owned by tens of millions of Americans. Law-abiding private citizens choose them for many reasons, including the same reason police officers do: to improve their odds in defensive situations.
Also, Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) proposed to ban possession of firearms within 1,000 feet of the President, Vice President, Members of Congress or federal judges. Obviously, this proposal would be ignored by anyone who intends to harm a government official. But it would impose extraordinary burdens on honest gun owners, creating potentially hundreds of square miles of roving “gun free” areas throughout the United States. There’s no question that the debate over gun control will continue after the Tucson attack. Please rest assured that the NRA will, as always, stand front and center in defense of the rights of gun owners. And, as always, watch your NRA-ILA alerts for the latest news and calls to action on these critical issues.
