Pussy is thrifty but...



Republicans in congress want to cut the budget by 2.5 trillion dollars. I can find a very easy way to do that. Pull out of Iraq and Afghanistan and undo this tax break extension. The two wars were estimated to cost 2 trillion when they began and the tax break is costing $700 million. You see that would actually result in more savings to the bottom line 2.7 trillion to be exact.

It's been raining to beat the band here for the last several hours (pineapple express it's called). Only wonder if some smart enterprising soul could store a bunch of this water and send it to drought areas when they needed it. Guess not. Too costly to capture store and transport.

No work yet. Guess I need to let my handler know. Workers are kind of like produce, if not used for a certain period of time then they spoil. WHERE'S THE JOBS BONER!

Bank fails later...

It seems the Right's take on financial responsibility is to make the many pay so the few can continue in the lifestyle they are entitled to. What makes it especially laughable is that their core supporters are the ones who will feel the Right's knife the deepest.

"Support me politically so I don't have to support you financially." - Should be the new motto fo the Right.

It would do better than that: All 42 Senate Republicans vowed Monday to prevent a final vote on any other legislative business in the lame duck session until Congress has "prevented the tax increase that is currently awaiting all American taxpayers."

President Barack Obama and top congressional Democrats say the estimated $700 billion the GOP tax cut extension would cost the Treasury would be fiscally irresponsible.

Republicans contended that a failure to extend all of the cuts would hamper an already sluggish economy. The wars are bad enough.

I have heard up to a trillion added for the extensions and if they were so frigging valuable we wouldn't be in this boat. Good luck with the job!

Besides ending the quagmires in Iraq and Afghanistan and repealing billionaires' tax breaks -- end the war on drugs. That should subtract another few hundred billion dollars from the deficit. Portugal decriminalized all drugs about ten years ago, and the country isn't exactly crawling with junkies and hippies and meth heads.

I have some work coming up, not that I was looking for work. But I think I'll get it out of the way in a week of easy days. I'll just take my camper out and stay there while I'm doing it and call it camping.

We fight wars wrong, just go in, kick all their asses fast, and take the country over. Prolonged wars done with politics are too expensive.

I don't need no tax breaks, don't pay any anymore, other than all the hidden taxes we all get stuck with.

Think about this, there is no such thing as a tax break for the rich. It's just a tax break for the rest of us being as they pass all costs onto us.

Raise their taxes and they will pass them on to us also. Time for a flat rate tax, not that I'm assuming that will fix anything.
