Austerity has been a bust for the UK compared to here. If he’s going to try and compare us to Greece I won’t be wasting my time.

Will his speech include how to purchase a hotel without having to pay for it?

Irrelevant much?

Oops. Had Tom Graves on the brain for some reason. I might need to go see a Doctor for that

There are tax rates and then there are taxes paid.
Austerity is when the legislator’s PAC is running low.

I am sick of these frauds. Where are all these plans for spending cuts when a Republican president is in power? When Clinton was president, we had Contract With America. Now with Obama, we have the Ryan plan and other austerity stuff. But under Reagan, Bush and Bush II … nothing. Maybe the Tea Party types have a point.

“Maybe the Tea Party types have a point.” Ya think? That’s all we’ve been trying to say for years now: we need to hold our own side accountable when they don’t do what they say they will do. That’s why the establishment types hate us; rocking the boat like that can and does sometimes help Democrats, and under the ‘party loyalty is all-important’ philosophy found among so many of our GOP brothers and sisters, helping the Democrats – no matter whether it is indirect or not – is the ultimate taboo. That’s when we start getting these equivocation arguments – “Well, my guy is the LESSER OF TWO EVILS.” Sorry folks, but if we’ve only got two choices and both of them are evil, that’s not much of a choice, eh? All the Tea Party wants is to get to a point where just one of our bloody choices ISN’T EVIL, lesser or otherwise. Why is that so maddening to you people? (And by ‘you people’ I don’t mean you, linux)
