Now I get it!

Thank you, GOP, for teaching me what's what.

Now I know:

- Spending us into the ground with billions in deficit dollars from an illegal war is "defense spending" (even if it leaves you in a more vulnerable position militarily and causes you to lose respect worldwide) and tax cuts for the uber-rich"stimulating the economy" (even if it doesn't.)

- Spending money to help people making less than $250,000 a year and create new jobs, more funding for a crumbling infrastructure, and providing help for higher education, however, is "big government."

Thank you for the clarification!

I've also noted that letting felons have handguns is a matter of state's rights - but trying to amend the Constitution to prevent gay people from marrying isn't big government at all.

On the plus side, now I know where Dick Cheney came from.

Is it true that Dubya is being allowed to live out his days in a petting zoo someplace in Texas?

I think the up and down yesterday at the Congress speech was the most execise some of those old GOP farts have had in the longest time. notice how fast they got up with the word "terrorists". It is like pavlov's dog. the magical "T" word. fuckin pathetic how those who are thinking of running...yes Palin and that joke of a guy from Louisiana won't take any stimulus $$. great...they will punish their state in order to make them look supposedly look better in 2012. pathetic! On a positive note wasn't it glorious to comprehend a President's speech from beginning to end!! Thank god the right guy was elected during this mess!!

sad thing about the stimulus nonsense is that our country, as it did with that idiotic "stimulus" package of the last administration, apparently forgot how to do basic math. If we give x number of dollars to everybody, we have to take x+y (where y is the cost of paying people to come up with the plan, manage the plan, distribute the dollars, and...oh yeah, make sure they are taxed the next year) dollars FROM people.

The old Ponzi scheme; illegal except when done by the government.

In case it wasn't clear, I was against the last "stimulus" and I am against this one; they both have long-term consequences every bit as dire as the Raw...err, New Deal still does.

Crystal clear and spot on Darth!

I wish more Americans were as wise.

It is an Obamanation to saddle future generations with so much debt. At this rate Obama will add about $8 Trillion in one term!!! Ouch.
