Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

I never said it was a balanced budget. Once again Free puts words into my mouth. Is that the 4th or 5th time you've done that now in 2 weeks?

The revenues generated by the bill led to a balanced budget. Obviously a difficult concept.

The 1993 Omnibus was 5 years before any budgets that balanced. Sorry, you are incorrect.

Yep, Surefriend is a commie. It sounds now though like he has been a duped commie. Duped into supporting commies, voting for commies, and trying to get others to do the same. In other words, a blind commie who just had his debilitating cataracts removed, partially.

"The goal of Socialism is Communism." (Lenin)

Obama's Mother, Father and mentor were all communists. I know it, you know it, and the American people know it.

Afraid to use the word commie? That just means you're afraid. Sugarcoat it all you want. Then curse the ensuing cavities.

McCarthy was ahead of his time. His downfall opened the gates for commies.

Commies, commies, commies. One should call a commie what he is, a commie.

What are you talking about? Please identify the "words I put into your mouth".

The Omnibus was also not a balanced budget as you state and, in your opinion, setup the surplus by increasing revenues flowing into the government.

My point is that those "tax increase" inflows were miniscule compared to the growth related inflows caused by the exploding tech industry.

"Oh, wait a second...it most certainly does. Nevermind, just close your eyes to it as Jax and Norm have done. Follow their lead, and perhaps the ghost of Beria will come fish all 3 of you out of the ditch. "

I've explained that I don't live my life in paralyzed paranoia tin-foil hat fear like you do RS. Just because you live your life cowering does not mean we all have to.

I would offer that the tech bubble created the surplus DESPITE that increase in taxes but I see your point.

A clear cause and effect has not been established.

Unlike raising taxes during a weak economy, which many democrats are arguing for, the 1993 Omnibus did it during a clear upturn.

You're right and the republicans did not control the House at that time.

You will see if you bother to read it that the Omnibus Budget act was developed by Clinton and Robert Reich and raised a number of taxes, not as blanket raise but specific targeted raises. You will also see every Republican voted against it.

I'm going to ask you Free, to do a very difficult thing here, use logic. Now, we have a bill that raises revenues. All Republicans voted against it. Do you really feel Gingrich should claim credit for the balanced budget when all Republicans voted against the portion that raised revenue?

According to Free, putting words into my mouth and jumping to conclusions is his norm, as he has now demonstrated several times over the past two weeks.

Libby was not convicted for outing the CIA agent. He was convicted for obstructing the investigation into the outing.

Not a very sophisticated argument surefoot. I would offer that the judges in China are a bit different than those here.

I think the congressional oversight committees look pretty good right now don't they?

; But you know China must be a great republic too because they have government judges to; just to make sure everything is on the up and up. Freeman is you so thick.

I’m not talking about what the NSA is doing today freeman, but in two years, the foundation is being laid. The Germans and the Russians never thought what happen would come to pass; they just stood and waved their countries flag when they were told to. “The Father Land” to point out the secrets was a one way trip to life of hard labor, as Snowden will find out.

What are you freeman a true patriot or just a fair weather one? Oh what happen to these Tea Party members and their support of the constitution?

I think I know, it’s not on Fox News 24 hours a day.

To be accurate Senator Wyden was asked whether or not he would have gotten a different answer in a closed session. His response was yes.

Wyden should have not asked that question in open session,

Foot, the Army can block any content they see fit WITHIN THEIR OWN NETWORK....

They aren't blocking anything from the general public. Log on and see for yourself.

Wyden should have not asked that question in open session, he admits that himself.

Wake up son, start reading the ENTIRE article.
