Just some perspective (or a reminder) esp for all of those who so want to just on spending..spending..and spending...

Understanding the estimate of the governments debt of 12 trillion dollars.
This week, the United States’ national debt is expected to reach a record-breaking $12 trillion. And yesterday, the people of this country were reminded of how much we owe, but I do not or cannot begin to understand the amount of a trillion dollars. The following thread gave me a better understanding of a trillion, if you are murky concerning that sum of money, I suggest you use the following thread to find out.
should we just say oh hell with it let SPEND some more! Like Obama seems want to do? I mean he tripled it within 100 days of office not even 100 days..

yeah anon...but he's not. He is going to half ass it. Just like everything else. Just enough involvement to F**** it up but not enough to be directly held liable. Thats how he rolls. Like this Afghanistan thing. I think McCrystal (sp?) came out the way he did because he didnt want to be blamed when the Sh*t hits the fan. He wanted people to know HE did HIS job.

Why yourspecialkid? They work about 3 days per week, but they did vote today to increase the Congressional operating budget. They are doing a fine job (said in my best Forrest Gump voice).
