Does that include white collar crime, David?

Of course! Why wouldn't it?


The question is, why hasn't it?

The question is how much more can government spend? It's not like the federal government is playing Uncle Scrooge, after all. Obama is hemorrhaging money -- and what good has it done? You libs have to come up with a new idea once in a generation, don't you?

Well, let's review, shall we?

$1.4 trillion of the 2009 deficit, passed by Bush. 45% of the deficit spending last year came from Bush programs and mistakes. $12 trillion of today's debts came from Republican budgets and interest on their debts. Um, no, Obama isn't hemorrhaging, but the country is in an effort to recuperate from the burden of out-of-control Republican budgets, and interest on their debts, and both parties cowardice to make cuts that would be more helpful, or at least raise taxes on the top so they at least pay the same tax rates as the Middle class.

But the corporate media Goliath is on your side, David, so there's no need to throw stones at everyone else, right? Just sit back and enjoy the show.

Mr. Hispen, please answer the question. How much more money can the government spend before it makes a difference in the State Fair wildings?

It's where the cuts are being made and how to fix it that's in question, Dave.

Don't you have a few people who have been asking you to do that same thing? For like, days and weeks? Try answering those questions, and maybe Mr Hispen will learn from your fine example.

I really don't think young street-gang types "plan" much of anything. There was a fight on the midway by the rides. When security showed up everyone ran and apparently assumed a mob mentality which just grew. Eventually it spilled out of the park and onto the streets in front of the park. Too much gets blamed on gang activity and supposed gang initiations. This is just a gang of assholes.

Still haven't seen a cell phone video of actual assaults. I'm definitely not saying it didn't happen but C'mon, some B-list bimbo lets a nipple slip out and it's caught from five fucking angles...

There he goes again...

Debt in 1980 =$902 billion.

Debt after 11 years of Reaganomics = $4.5 trillion

Congress passed budgets that exceeded Reagan's requests by an average of 0.6% more than what he requested over 8 years.

Clinton paid off $600 billion of the debt but by now the interest was so high that it still went up to $5.7 trillion in 2000.

Newt reined Clinton in you say? Not so fast according to the President of the CATO institute you just quoted.

http://www.cato.org/pub_display.php?pub_id=4463

Over the past three years the Republican-controlled Congress has approved discretionary spending that exceeded Bill Clinton's requests by more than $30 billion. The party that in 1994 would abolish the Department of Education now brags in response to Clinton's 2000 State of the Union Address that it is outspending the White House when it comes to education. My colleagues Stephen Moore and Stephen Slivinski found that the combined budgets of the 95 major programs that the Contract with America promised to eliminate have increased by 13%.


Debt after Bush's last fiscal budget of 2009, well over $12 trillion.

%-age of last years deficit spending due to BU$H mistakes and programs = 45%

So lets be accurate, by far most of the spending of the last 5 decades came from Republican budgets or interest on the debts they ran up.

When 9 million jobs vanish, the tax load is dispersed amongst a smaller number, the spending per household naturally increases. Of course Heritage fails to mention that. They also fail to mention the cause of the increased spending, as well as failing to distinguish between Social Security, which we pay for, and actual entitlement programs, as well as failing to mention entitlements to corporations who pay zero taxes and often rake in millions to tens of millions and even 100's of millions in profits, yes profits, off the top favoring tax codes.

In other words, people who wish to be misled would look towards Heritage for misleading "facts."
