You comment on the "Tea Baggers" on Sept 12 is oh so true. I just listened to two of them on Hardball.
Talk about a bunch of people who are really out in left field.
The host pointed out to these clowns that under Bush the national debt more the doubled. They danced around it but the sad fact is it's true.
I kind of equal them this explanation I've come up with to explain how our national debt doubled.
Think of Bush standing outside an all you can eat buffet. He has the door open and is just inviting passersby to come in an eat. He tell them that it's great, you gotta try it and it really doesn't cost that much.
The people come in get their plates and just pile them high.
At his urging they keep going back for seconds, thirds, fourths and fifths.
Bush keeps inviting people in.
Now the owner of the buffet comes in and ask Bush whose going to pay for all this?
Bush looks at the owner, smiles and points to the people and says, "They are..." and walks out the door.
Now the people realize it isn't a free lunch and are now upset they have to pay.
Moral of the story:
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A FREE LUNCH....
and having been in business myself...I know that "Free" is a four letter word.....
Thank you for connecting with me - I had no idea there was a group for folks with dependents who have special needs! Sounds like you have gone through and are currently dealing with way more than I have. I hope things get smoother and more in control for you soon.
Hey Cowpunk(great handle btw), thanks for the add. I haven't been part of Nexus long, so the information overload is blowing my brain. So many conversations to read and learn. Looking forward to being able to actively particpate!
Your welcome I really appreciated the question about Obama and the military. A politicised military would be a very dangerous thing, and the American people and the world in general needs to know that the US military isnt politicised. We cheer when any Pres. comes to say hello, and we obey the civilian elected leadership. So thanks again keep the great topics comin!
Thanks for the welcome. I'll try to keep up with the discussions. I'm an old guy but I have two very little kids, so life is busy. Except for the musical selection, I haven't seen anything I could make a worthy comment on yet. Far from knowing about sleeping aids, I need staying-awake aids.
