    Not sure where you get this but Fed Budget is what $3.7 trillion? In 2010, US incomes were $12 trillion. Check out the link below.

    Well, if the Federal Gov't. had $12 trillion, what do you think they would do??

    Some might find this interesting. Note one poster says that Ron P. has been doing this for a long while. Every penney counts people.

    If you don't care about your own economic future enough to accept a little pain, don't expect the person trying to get your vote to care beyond a sound bite. Carol on another thread talked of economic reality, live where you want to & learn to get by with what comes in . What you have to be conscious of is your own family preparing themselves to cope. Not everyone can be born with the silver spoon as Chelsea has apparently been. A paying gig on a major MSM outlet (her performance reminded me of Carolyn Kennedy ) & a directorship that pays 300K a year. There are people out there that are qualified for those jobs but they will go more & more to those with the right connections. Such as the retiring big shots from government.

    Computerization has caused some of this - went to get a Quit Claim deed @ the Auditor's office, hand her the number, she pulls it up on the screen, runs a copy & says pay the lady over there. Less than 2 minutes where in the old days it would have been 15-30 minutes in an efficient office. A BA degree in many disciplines is barely worth the paper it's printed on, the only one profiting from that transaction is the Higher? Ed folks.

    When BHO can stiff the bondholders & Bernanke can ZIRP the old folks that made this country what it is there is something fundamentally wrong. Don't expect it to be corrected overnight, if in fact there is enough talent willing to do that thankless task. It's not something I would want to undertake. We will just live within the ground rules, watch our P's & Q's stay diversified & see where that takes us. If you had a stock account regardless of who runs it that didn't do in the 10% area between Jan 1 & Feb 3, you might want to look into that.

    I have jobs - wage 1 bowl rice 2 times a day. Housing - no water, sewage, heat or cooling provided

    See we have to be competive so we can make more for less and buy things with our profit...and our workers support the rice industry

    Obviously others think she is worth it too

    Or, or you angry with me for calling Bravo Sierra??

    I realize I don't articulate well, but I am still interested in an answer.
