centerish, when you talk about Republicans, you always sound a little angry.
Suggestion: play a few games now and then. It's good for the blood pressure.

Go ahead loco, play your games. I have posted only a few of the cuts that Republicans have administered to veterans benefits over the years but you did not quite comprehend that so you tried a little mix and match. Typical of the right wing, When facts are presented that you cannot refute, you bob and weave, change the subject, or just smear the reference. But, the fact remains that the Republicans have lied to the veterans and tried many times to cut their benefits. oh, and as to that budget conference committee, it is lounging in Boehnors desk as is the jobs bill (2 years), the farm bill, and the budget bill.

Oh, now I get it. I'm supposed to list MY "friends" on here, those that I admire or appreciate.
Truthfully, I have appreciated many well-worded posts, both liberal and conservative.
As far as "friends" I prefer mine real as opposed to virtual.
Sorry, I'm a traditionalist.

"Yep, bdgi, and we spend more on the military than all the free world counties combined. But the Republicans want to spend more."
But, but, centerish, you mentioned elsewhere that Republicans, way back to Reagan, spent less for veterans.
Are "veterans" not part and parcel of our government's military expenditures? Or are they placed in a different category within the budget?
Budget? What am I saying? Has the Senate passed a budget yet? Have the House and Senate conferred on a budget recently?
Hmmm...with all this transparency, it's seems a little muddy to me exactly what's happening with the military OR veterans.
"Veritas doesn't have many friends loco..."
Well, you listed six and omitted me from consideration (no surprise). That's nothing to shake a schtick at, Veritas.
Enjoy your Monday...
Yep, bdgi, and we spend more on the military than all the free world counties combined. But the Republicans want to spend more. Oh, yes, bdgi, did you know that the past Republican Presidents were the biggest deficit spender of all. Oh, you can look that up on your non Fox News sites, which I am sure are located out of state, just like you are.
Cramer in Linton? well, let me see, what can we expect from him? How about some right wing/tea bag double speak. Kinda like his campaign. Oh, he will say he is doing the will of the people but the polls show different. He is a right wing zealot and will lie his rear off, will not answer questions, and like most of the right wingers will change the subject. He is the ultimate right wing loser.

And now, a message from everyone's good friend, Veritas...
"There are no victims on this blogging site and there are certainly no purists...Yourself included!!!"
None of us could have said it better ourselves. EOS

How about some more posts from redstate, RR?
It was SOOO interesting to find that piece on Daily Kos from the guy who blogged on redstate, pretending to be religious, ginning up the debate, bragging that at least he could string together a sentence in proper English...
The point? He was a proud dyed-in-the-wool liberal, going to a conservative site, pretending to be a conservative, all the while DESPISING the people he's hanging with.
No, I don't know why somebody would do that. He's a young actor waiting for his first big break, maybe? He's practicing for a run for presidency, maybe?
I keep my ten-foot pole handy for folks like him, so the distance between him and I is measured.

Where did Will Garr go? That nice guy that was going to open his checkbook to find who drugged the horse to death.. Such as I thought.

And locomotive, you are exactly right. Sometimes, liberals think if they repeat the same, same, speech over and over again, they are convincing someone it is the truth, only to convince themselves.
That's right Veritas, only if it is Liberal. Only if it agrees to your perspective. Otherwise you attack.

Nickels and hollerin' aside, you haven't convinced me of anything other than...
leftywing's "Economics For Dummies" hasn't moved past the "Dummies" part - guess where he's ending up
Veritas has no idea that some people will write anything for the nickels it might earn them
So I should believe every book? Every TV reporter? Every editorial? Every news source?
Without checking? Don't think so.
And all I had to do was wait. Veritas revealed exactly what he is about, to a sweet tea.
Obama wanted to: Shut down Gitmo Stop the Afghan war Stop the Iraq war
Who prevented him from doing so? Republicans stopped his efforts.
There was 3 trillion dollars right there. Who wants to increase military budget? Republicans. For what? USA spends more on military spending than the next 10 counties combined.
You want to save money- cut the military budget in half

Seems just like the bipartisan efforts of the democrats. Upset they the republicans are copying the strategy of the democrats? ohhhhhh:-)

Democrats in the Senate has been doing budgets on auto-pilot for over 5 years and it's STILL the Republicans' fault?
Only in Liberal Wonderland...

"Republicans played their hand, and lost big, now it is the time for them to ask politely for meager things. It is time for Republicans to know their place, because we will certainly put them in their place next November."
This is bi-partisanship redux, for willgrr and all his Democrat friends, especially Sen. Harry Reid.
No wonder nothing will continue to change in DC...

"By never submitting a budget, enacting a few discretionary spending caps as a part of the Budget Control Act (a.k.a. the debt ceiling deal) and punting to the Super Committee that also punted on entitlement reform, Democrats avoid any difficult discussion of how to ensure the solvency of our entitlement programs. With no plan of their own on the table, they’re free to shoot down anything Republicans propose."

"Here’s why it matters: The Appropriations Committee determines levels of discretionary spending. Approps don’t touch mandatory spending. But mandatory spending constitutes about 60 percent of all federal spending — and mandatory programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security drive our deficits and debt. Without the imposition of budget discipline, these programs grow on autopilot."
..."The Senate Budget Committee is to report a budget resolution to the full Senate by April 1. The House and Senate are to reach agreement on a concurrent budget resolution by April 15. Senate Budget Democrats haven’t submitted a budget since 2009."

centerish: "Well, because of the obstructionist Republican party, no new spending bills have been passed in five years."
2-3-12 "It’s been more than 1,000 days since the Senate has passed a budget, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is unconcerned. In fact, he says he has no plans to bring a budget to the floor in 2012, either. He argues the 2012 budget is already done because last summer’s debt-ceiling deal included a few spending caps...."
Has this scenario been altered yet, centerish?
So those that have paid their own hospital bills are still free-riding, according to PJinfinity?
Only with liberalspeak in full op mode.
A new lefty talking point...
From what portion of the economy? Where did it go?
You look ignorant if you can't flesh out the talking point to make sense. Just saying...
This country or the media must not know how to exist with war and battles. Even the budget is defined as a battle, we need new people at the helm.
