    I do have a question though on the debt ceiling thing. If they raise the debt ceiling is that not asking for more credit to pay off the bills that were caused by the credit thing in the first place?
    No, it isn't. The money has already been spent, we charged it to the nation's credit card, not raising the debt ceiling means we are not authorizing the treasury to pay the CC bill. The consequences of which are disastrous. The ceiling must be raised to pay the nation's debts otherwise we will default.

    You can't just not pay your bills. If you charged purchases in December, you can't just not pay the bill when it comes in January because you decided it was a bad idea to charge it in the first place.

    When do people realize "it" hasn't worked and "it's" not going to work? Your elected officials will talk tough, say they tried, say if only we had a little more support, another Congressman... They'll keep the political theater going and you'll begrudingly open your purse or emotionally invest in the 2a discussion, spending cuts, the debt ceiling, the nation's credit rating or whatever subterfuge of the day is and in the end: its status quo. It's always been this way and it will always be this way. Until it changes. People in power will never willingly relinquish it.

    Actually, I think you can. A lot of credit cards entice people to transfer their balance to the new card, presumably because it has a lower interest rate. However, nothing says you have to transfer to a card with a lower interest rate, so here's how you do it. You transfer your balance to the new card. Your first payment usually isn't due for 30 days. At day 29, you transfer to a new card and reset your payment clock for another 30 days. 29 days later, you transfer the balance to another card. See, you NEVER have to pay back anything.

    Sure! Just make sure to go out and get an American Express and Discover card too so you have something to spend.

    When a politician uses the words "common sense" you know he does not have any.

    He needs to stop sending the Muslim Brotherhood and other enemies of the USA billions of dollars that could be spent to actually protect our schools. Or maybe improve education so that more than just NRA members are aware we even have a constitution. Besides who is going to pay for all these advanced roads and transportation systems and how the hell is anyone going to afford fuel? I can't even take my travel trailer camping for the hundreds of dollars it costs in gas to drive 8 hours.

    He has really let his inner socialist liberal fly. One good thing, he is going to screw the dems in 2014 and behind the scenes they have to be hating his commy butt right about now. Obama's arrogance might be our best weapon against him. I hear Wayne from the NRA is delivering some blows to this idiot tonight via streaming. Time to take the gloves off Barry!!! Let's see how this royal punk can fight.

    And what in God's name does "military-style" mean? We should take one moment in this country and think about banning "gang-style" culture. You pathetic oval headed chucklehead.

    Evidentally Mr. Barry also likes to get a second credit card with a higher limit to pay off the bills from the first one, then repeat that cycle every year. In my household we stop spending when we run out of money and adjust our lifestyle to fit our income. Which is shrinking steadily under this regime.

    Of course the only time in my life I accepted welfare was when I served my country in the military and earned such a small amount of pay I required the milk and cheese program to help feed my newborn child. While I worked 7 days a week, 12 hours a day launching aircraft from 3:30am in the morning. Mr. President I didn't even have a baby sitter or a real vacation until I was married 10 years.

    I actually grew up in the real USA and have some concept of what that landscape looks like. I was mentored by two grandfathers that fought in WWII and not some communist anti-colonial radical fool.


    I'd love to get a letter to the moron in chief.

    I too get weary of the use of phrases like "common sense" when it comes from people that only have an agenda.

    I'd have a least a modicum of respect for him -- which is a lot more than I have for him now -- if he'd just honestly state his intentions, that he wants to disarm the sheep so he can be crowned king. But it irks me to no end when someone uses terms like "common sense", and then the media repeats that, as if what they're saying is the only thing that makes sense. Once that lexicon gets into the public info stream, it's very difficult to push it aside and have an open, honest discussion about an issue.
    I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.

    No, they bring in enough every month in tax revenues to more than pay our debt bills with plenty left over to run the government. They want to raise the debt ceiling so they are not restricted to a budget. When was the last time they passed a budget? The reason for raising the debt ceiling is so that after they have paid the bills (interest payments) is once that is done there is not enough money left over to further their agenda and increase the nanny state. Rather than operate under a budget and get fiscally responsible, let's just raise the debt ceiling so we can borrow more money that will be squandered away on special interest groups, entitlements, foriegn aid, socialized medicine, etc... For the record, this is not a conservative or liberal problem or a repub or dem problem. This is a government problem. They are all guilty of it. Some more so than others.

    Just keep kicking the can down the road.

    It is not that congress doesn't want to pay the bills, the issue is they have no other leverage to get spending down. We cannot continue to spend at the levels our government is currently spending, but the President and the Senate don't even care enough to submit/vote on a budget.
