No, then this thread will be revitalized; with "see, I told you so" and "I didn't see that coming" posts...

Every friggin day - more than 35% of everything that comes in goes out in taxes. Never mind costs of doing actual business like payroll, product, insurances & bonding, vehicles & fuel, physical plant; just friggin taxes is over 30 friggin percent.

Sorry - haven't had any coffee yet & grumpy. If you mean a particular tax specific to August 9th, not familiar with it. Our accountant & my wife handle the specifics & individual payments.

Why are the cuts directed at Social Security and Veteran's Affairs which are paid for by those who are in the system rather than flat out entitlements like welfare or other aid to those who have not paid into the system like emergency room care for illegal aliens?

(Yes, I know in some circs people can draw from SS when they haven't paid thanks to Reagan...)

Wait a minute....WHAT?!?

I hear entitlement and "social justice" programs and I think welfare.... so are the programs you mentioned part of the slashing deal??

Go back and listen to some of the speeches being made by the President and cronies. They always threaten that if they don't get the budget deal they want, the elderly and the veterans will suffer. They will have to cut benefits to those groups.

Part of it is to tug at the emotional heart strings of course that we don't want to mess with those groups, but why do they have to be pawns in this game?

I know they did that in the past and got a bunch of backlash because of it. Were they really stupid enough to do it again??

I think the easiest answer to your question is that our senators and representatives aren't being paid to look after the veterans. They're being paid to look after corporate interests - Click here to see how much money the two senate members were paid this year by various corporate interests. Their puny $175,000 salary pales in comparison to their campaign contributions (some of which they're allowed to simply pocket ... shhhhh!)

All the sooner it will crash. These buffoons can't make anything happen that would be for the good of the country. The sooner it crashes, the sooner we can start on the road to rebuilding, without the entitlement and giveaway programs. Think of American during the Great Depression. From it came five generations of fiscal conservatives. They learned what worked and what didn't. Spending more than you have doesn't work for long!!!

I agree we are going to crash soon but I am worried about the idiots who I see on TV and in the universities spouting socialism. These people don't have a clue as to human nature and what motivates an economy to produce goods and services. The good news is that if it comes to a violent solution the "right" people have the guns.

That's right. When they call for the violent socialist revolution, who will have the guns?
