Spending levels still too high

August 13, 2013

Taxes have gone up, not just for “the wealthy” but for every American who works. The national debt is approaching $17 trillion....

namexxx, you must have me mixed up with someone else, who's the "know-it-all about aid to poor folks and dependent children" that will "bitterly grouse and complain about it every day."

I guess you're too busy bitterly grousing and complaining about....everything else to answer the question, so yeah, I'll figure it out myself.

You know all about welfare for people living in poverty. You bitterly grouse and complain about it every day.

But somehow, you're strangely ignorant of the welfare handed out to the wealthy.

Why is that?

Why are you a know-it-all about aid to poor folks and dependent children, yet you "still don't get" how the MDN is subsidized?

Figure it out, Sparky.

"Since spending levels are too high -- let's stop spending tax dollars on the Minot Daily News. The MDN is a for-profit business. Why should the unashamedly partisan Republican rag be subsidized?"

I still don't get this rant of namexxx's. How is the MDN "subsidized?"

centerish, unless you're now a mindreader via cyberspace and that's your "proof", you can't prove your assertion that I "support even the far, far extremes of the far right."

You can't prove it, 'cuz it ain't true.

Diversity of thought and opinion. Yes, it's out there, even on the right.

*gasp*

""We are all so impressed with the factual information that you present and also with the fact that you support even the far, far extremes of the far right, such as BDGI-dusty-change." What a joke it is for you to tell me to prove that!!! All one has to do is to look at your posts on every block and the facts are there. So sad for you, loco.

Same is true for republican minot. All of our new homes and businesses will pay taxes--is there no economy of scale in city government? Is this progress? I blame things like the millions spent on the state fair which is corporate welfare. MADC and our Chamber of Commerce are more examples. Vote no on most of what they want and taxes will decrease.

Solar doesn't have the power (yet) that diesel does, that's all.

Dittos for your shout-out, centerish, especially this...

"We are all so impressed with the factual information that you present and also with the fact that you support even the far, far extremes of the far right, such as BDGI-dusty-change."

Prove that one, centerish.

"YOU have NOTHING...NOTHING to be proud about! She's (Veritas' wife) pretty smart...Starting to doubt your capabilities..."

Now, now, you should always tell the truth, Veritas. You never thought I had capabilities.

Hey, loco, thanks for the shout-out. We are all so impressed with the factual information that you present and also with the fact that you support even the far, far extremes of the far right, such as BDGI-dusty-change. Their regurgitations are almost verbatim from those named shows and individuals. In fact, almost all of the presentations on the blog from the far right contain all of the same false charges, comments, and slams that have been previously presented by these right wing rags. You only kid yourself by coming on and denying that fact. But, we always need a sanctimonious right winger in the group, so have at it.

centerish, nobody really pays that much attention anymore when you spout off your list of faves that you think "all" conservatives rely upon.

You type the same list so often that you could easily c/p and save yourself some posting time.

BTW (and I'm doing you a favor telling you this, trust me) not everyone who disagrees with you listens to, watches, reads or heeds your list of faves.

You need to get out more and talk with more real people. There's diversity of thought and action out here on the "fruited plains."

I just threw in that last bit to get you going.

Veritas: "It is the very essence of freedoms that Republicans want control over...The mind & the body and ultimately your soul is what they're after under the guise of religious hypocrisy..."

So this is what your Republican wife believes? I guess you're toast, fella...

Since spending levels are still too high we should make cuts . . . cuts in freebies . . . starting with North Dakota.

This state is one of the biggest welfare queens in the nation -- getting out almost twice what's paid in to the federal government.

Frankly, more disturbing than the horrible mooching, is the constant whining and complaining while taking and taking!

Bill Clinton was the last pres to have a balanced budget. It means spending less than taxes collected. If the GOP would pass the jobs bill we could see it again--but they resist because it might make our pres look good. When the fed puts money in our economy they may get it all back because money turns several times and is taxed most of the time when it is exchanged.

Well, BDGI, You never explain the 300 filibusters of that era, or the fact that history will show the Republicans as total obstructionists. It will also show that Republicans have tried to destroy a President without any regard for the countries welfare. You have no clue as to what is going on and therefore you are entitled to a life membership in the tea Party. If you keep it up, they may give you a pin to commemorate your lack of factual presentations. You don't have a clue.

Gosh, veritas, did you just get threatened? So, you(zagfan) know someone who knows someone and you can get names of those who attended a college. whoopee!!! you should try watching something besides Fox (false)News, drudge resorts, or listening to Rush, Shawn, Glenn, or the other losers you follow. Oh, and by the way, I believe Veritas was using a Harvard study on the war costs. Or was it the Brown University study or maybe from wikkipedia. Just in men and equipment, the defense department has spent a trillion bucks and that is not all the extra costs. Get a life, zaggot.

And then there was the Supreme Court of the US. Let me see, did they not select a President one time? Do they not accept gifts from sources outside the courts who want to influence their decisions? Do they not believe that corporations are people too? Yep, lets talk BIG time corruption.

willgrr: "Things are way better today then in 2008! Vote straight Democrat 2014 AND GO TO THE POLLS!!!!!!!!"

Nothing like starting early. No such thing as voter fatigue.

Don't forget this classic: vote early and vote often.

"The cynical phrases "Vote early -- and often" and "Vote early -- and vote often" are variously attributed to three different Chicagoans: Al Capone, the famous gangster; Richard J. Daley, mayor from 1955 to 1976; and William Hale Thompson, mayor from 1915-1923 and 1931-1935. All three were notorious for their corruption and their manipulation of the democratic process. It is most likely that Thompson invented the phrase, and Capone and Daley later repeated it."

Memories....

"Seriously loco...Why don't you guys get a 200lb canister of playdough and make a candidate? Keep the security tightened as someone is surely going to throw some sillyputty in the mix...always happens...Before you know it, someone is going to find the republican messiah wandering the deserts of wyoming looking for alabama on the way to alaska? How do you help a person like that?"

I suppose a little known community organizer/state senator/1st term Senator from illinois could work just as well. Oh, wait. That happened already...
