Comment Re:If Obama's BIRTH can be an issue (Score 2) 571

We have this deficit and debt because spending has been more than revenue for a long time. It doesn't matter how much taxes are raised if the spending keeps pace- the debt will continue to rise. Any serious budget plan will have to be fully locked in to cutting spending by a lot every fiscal year. It has to be done. And anyone that isn't willing to do it needs to stay out of Washington. There needs to be a balanced budget amendment passed and a trigger for spending cuts every single year until the debt is below a certain threshold. Washington needs to have discipline forced on it since it can not do it on its own.

I have to take a leak. Also, this electric drill I bought last week to work on a bust of Steve Jobs has an emergency recall on it from the manufacturer- shows symptoms of power failure. My target date for completion of the project- without help and delays- depends on how much time I spend on these social media sites; they sure are addictive... almost like narcotics. BTW, has anyone seen that remake of 3:10 to Yuma? I heard it's pretty good.
