Now that's comedy!

HEADLINE: Exclusive: Obama Fails to Register 'OrganizingForAction.n et'; Site Points to NRA Home Page

"At the beginning of the year, President Barack Obama's new 501(c)4 political nonprofit, Organizing For Action, was launched with all the usual bells and whistles. But the tech wizards at OFA forgot one important rule in today's Internet world: Register all the iterations of your website address before someone else does.

Now Obama's team is filing complaints against the folks smart enough to get the addresses before he did. "

lol! And you want these brainiacs to run your health care!?

"If you can sell that, you can sell anything"...

Grant, we are inundated with the liberal media who's bent is to make socialism our form of government, even though it has failed elsewhere.

It sounds great to those who don't want to work and good for those who feel good when those people are taken care off and very good to those politicians who want to have a life time job, taking care of the down trodden...that they made down trodden.

I'm not sure what will wake up people up at this point. Congress is more terrified of an 85 billion dollar sequester than they are of a 16 trillion dollar debt and people are buying the line that it'll be tragic. If you can sell that, you can sell anything.

cont.

"Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), Chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee heard from hand-picked witnesses advocating the infamous “Guaranteed Retirement Account” (GRA) authored by Theresa Guilarducci…

In a nutshell, under the GRA system government would seize private 401(k) accounts, setting up an additional 5% mandatory payroll tax to dole out a “fair” pension to everyone using that confiscated money coupled with the mandated contributions. This would, of course, be a sister government ponzi scheme working in tandem with Social Security, the primary purpose being to give big government politicians additional taxpayer funds to raid to pay for their out-of-control spending."

Well, maybe this will wake people up... Nah.

100% death tax.

The Consumer Finance Protection Board is moving forward with plans to confiscate citizens' savings and IRAs. The plan is to take our money and give a $600/month 'guaranteed retirement dividend".

The plan was put on hold in 2010 when the Tea Party took the House.

"The Senate held hearings in October 2010:

Democrats in the Senate on Thursday held a recess hearing covering a taxpayer bailout of union pensions and a plan to seize private 401(k) plans to more “fairly” distribute taxpayer-funded pensions to everyone."

And, are you aware of this...

Already looking past the current budget impasse gripping the capital, congressional leaders are quietly considering a deal to avert a government shutdown next month—but at the cost of prolonging across-the-board spending cuts.

Attention is beginning to shift from Friday, when the broad cuts known as the sequester kick in, to the next budget deadline: Congress must pass a so-called continuing resolution by the end of March to keep funding government operations.

Senior aides to House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) have begun discussing a bill being prepared by House Republicans.

Maybe, ladybug is talking about fuses...

Buss Fuses

Factory warranty in stock on Buss Fuses. Technical assistance, 24 hour service and same day shipment on fuses, call 800.739.9145.

Not certain how that fits your comment, ladybug, but, you are hard to figure out most times anyway.

But, all joking aside...it could be that ladybug was talking about the letter referring to estimates on one's gas bill?

Yep, that makes complete sense???

"Good night ladybug I am tired of chasing your rabbits. You can't even admit to where raises come from. "

Ladies and gentlemen, you are trying to apply logic to someone who runs strictly on emotion. You are going to be VERY tired.

" And' before I get hit from the left...

1. We will not be damaged by a small reduction in added spending... "

1) There are NO cuts in this. There are merely reductions in the increase in spending.

2) AFTER the 'cuts', we are STILL spending more than last year.

3) Police, fire, teachers laid off... REALLY? Since when does the Fed pay them?

4) Obama LIED again. Agreed to no tax increases in return for the sequester that HE wanted. Now he says no sequester without more taxes.

5) All this misses the whole point. We will never have a balanced budget without getting rid of Baseline Budgeting.

And in the real world we all live day to day:

Retailers are preparing for a triple whammy as the restoration of the payroll tax, surging gas prices, and stagnant employment and wages take a bite out of consumers’ disposable income, leaving them with less cash to spend on clothing, groceries, and eating out. Wal-Mart's profits can indicate how the nation's economy is doing. Recent reports forecast lower spending at the retail giant this year. As a result, more than three years after the recession officially ended, American consumers might be preparing to downshift again, if only slightly, with low-income consumers hit the hardest. Sensing consumer trepidation, retailers are scrambling to adjust.

Retailers, restaurants, and consumer goods companies like Wal-Mart are lowering sales forecasts and adjusting marketing campaigns ahead of expectations that consumers will slash spending.

And, while Washington wrings it's hands as to how to survive spending us into oblivion, " Inflation-adjusted per capita federal spending went up $822.90 from fiscal 2008 to fiscal 2012, according to official data from the U.S. Treasury and the Census Bureau.

Real federal spending also increased $2437.64 per household between 2008 and 2012.

In constant 2012 dollars, the federal government spent $3,176,376,470,000 in 2008 and $3,538,446,000,000 in 2012, according to the U.S. Treasury."

Does it make you wonder whose side their on?

You see it's one thing to complain and another to do something about it.

I'm sorry, but I see a President who only cares about how he's perceived and nothing about what to do to turn this ship around...an example is what is his latest effort on jobs?

I see a congress who doesn't know what to do with a President who gives no leadership and a media who blames them for everything including the common everyday cold.

Maybe, it would be best if the government just shut down?

As one economist said Friday, this all began when we gave away our manufacturing.

Much because our government refused to stop countries like China from manipulating their currency and producing inferior products, then dumping them on we the people.

But, also the greed on the part of both labor and management.

The biggest question put forth by the economist is whether we have a means of getting it back. I wonder if we have the will?
