"This administration doesn't respect the majority of Americans..They just put a gun to everyone's head and tell us this is the way it's going to be" And how does that differ from all previous and future admistrations?

Army - Unemployment hasn't been 5% since April '08. In fact, unemployment reached it's highest point while Bush II was in office. http://www.data360.org/dsg.aspx?Data_Set_Group_Id=248&count=all

The crime is perjury not taking/dealing steroids. Are you arguing that perjury to Congress should not be a crime?

Thanks to all for absolutely proving my point. A question as simple as 'How much have we spent on the Iraq war?' devolves into another playground argument about partisan politics.

"the total cost of the war in Iraq was less than Obama's failed stimulus spending." - Arminius Have you found a source somewhere that tallys Iraq war spending? I have been digging around and have never found anything I could believe as an accurate accounting.

Careful Republicans, when you win in November, the public will expect you to cut spending dramatically. The catch is that the public wants to cut spending on the programs that affect everyone else (not them).

"They are not listening to that majority, which is why we say we want our country back so that we will be listened to again." - Arminius "The Republicans were tossed out in 2006 and 2008 for many reasons. The war and their deficit spending were major reasons." - GCYL Who are these magical folks who actually legislate based upon the opinions of the 'majority'? "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss." - Pete Townshend

"However, many economists believe that reducing tax rates on the “wealthy” brings corresponding economic growth, which leads them to pay more taxes and increases Treasury revenues." ... that's some damn good economic growth we've had over the past two years.

OK, I'll not call it spending, I'll call it revenue loss. And if one is truly interested in deficit reduction, one needs to look at increasing revenues as well as reduced spending.

"Sorry Kdog tax cuts are not borrowed money." - Zeno oops, I'm sorry, I was just using the same terminology that idiot Alan Greenspan used.. "I'm very much in favor of tax cuts, but not with borrowed money." Meet the Press 8/1/10.

exactly Jazzy, it's one thing to disagree with the premise of using borrowed money to help prop up the economy (unless that borrowed money is the result of the Bush tax cuts, funny how that works), it's quite another to stubbonly say that pumping hundreds of billions of $ into the struggling State governments doesn't help save jobs. It seems that for some of us around here 9.5% unemployment isn't high enough.

Sorry Chalvey, I pulled this straight from the Ks.gov website. Maybe you can ask these folks if they think this stimulous was a 'complete fialure' as you put it. "Twenty-seven state and local agencies will receive $11,534,125 in Justice Assistance Grants during the next 24 months. The grant program supports communities in their efforts to hire and retain criminal justice personnel. The funds will create five full time positions and will help retain all or a portion of 112 existing positions. In addition, the grant funds will reduce anticipated furlough days for approximately 1,484 employees. The grant program will help maintain and strengthen resources for law enforcement, prosecution, and corrections programs."

... about the only other thing that's needed is to require that the procedure room be filled with protestors to call the women who still want an abortion whores and baby-killers.

incessant screaming about illegal immigration (last I looked a misdemeanor) while accepting the lowest bid to get your house painted/roofed/cleaned is the height of hypocrisy.

GH - some of us view investments as a risk/reward equation. The letter writer wants to recieve all of the rewards without accepting any of the risk. This liberal isn't finding 'great pleasure' in her loss, just responding to her odd request.

sorry folks, as investors in the company that is responsible for the mess in the Gulf, you get to pay for the clean-up. If it takes your dividends to do it, that's part of the risk. You have enjoyed spectaular dividends when the going was good, did you not think that if the going went south, so would the dividends?

"Furlough days reduced a friend’s work week by 4% but only cut the take home pay by 2%. What’s the point in working the extra hours? " How many hours a week does he work if furlough days only cout his work week by 4%?

"So my advice to you is be careful of the amount of chemicals that are used on plants, and know how to use them before beginning." - letter writer four comments in on this relatively mild topic and here comes the insults and bashing. How do those holiday dinners go at the Kee household? Does anyone actually sit down and eat? My guess is no one stays past the initial 'greeting' Kee offers.
