    Your right about the few earmarks that the reps had in there but the dems had 98% to the Reps 2% of earmarks. Big difference.

    Maybe you should expect more from your party.

    Got a link for that?

    I was not talking about earmarks. Personally I don't get outraged about them. Hypocrisy bothers me a lot more.

    I was wondering if anyone would notice that the video came from FOX. Glad someone over there is willing to point out the hypocrisy. Personally I appreciate my Senator Thune bringing projects to the State of South Dakota, but I don't appreciate his political posturing.

    Got some documentation about the mix of earmarks in the bill?

    You will be whining like a little girl if and when they start cutting government programs like they should.

    Your hero Obama increased federal pay the past several years and has not frozen step increases. Don't act like he is some type of savior. What needs to be done is lay off government workers or make them take a pay cut.
    1) If we're ALL not whining like little girls, then enough isn't being done. I've heard big talk about "sacrafice" but tax cuts are not sacrafice. Cuts in programs, paying your fair share of taxes, and not getting pay raises in hard economic times are a start. You don't need to tell me about it. Tell the congressional republicans, and democrats.

    2) Obama is not my hero, anymore than Bush is yours. (I hope) We have been screwed, and continue to be on the receiving end of a giant shaft called Washington, being run by corporate interests and lobbyists.

    The congressional republicans, while not YET in the majority, most certainly bullyed Obama into this agreement, yielding only to the 13 month unemployment benefits extension. (which many economists say are the ONLY part of this agreement that will stimulate the economy) Now they are whining that it costs too much. I can't think of a better example of the cliche about having your cake and eating it too. Maybe we should start saying, 'you can't have your tax cuts and wars, and balanced budget too!'

    Just ask Europe how supply-side economics is working for them. Well, except Germany, which took REAL measures to balance their budget, and are the only economy afloat right now it seems.

    Buck up, son. Lenin, Keynes, Krugman and Obama never said overturning society was going to be easy. It's hard work debauching the currency and it takes time. Just be patient, hold on to your ankles and soon enough the dollar will be destroyed and whats left of the Constitution will be burned so that we can have the workers utopia everybody wants and your government will provide everything you need. I have no doubt this is going to turn out for the better.

    We live in Cuba now.

    If you think that earmark is in the bill, I want some of what you're smoking.

    It was in the $1.1 Trillion bill of Harry Reids.

    Good ole' Harry, "watchin' out for the folks!!"


    Actually, the smoke of the day is a Remidios w/Maduro wrapper.
    You probably wouldn't like it.
