Yup, that is O's proposed 2011 budget

That is $11,000 for every man, woman and child in the US (assumes 350 million Legals, refine after 2010 census)

In 2009, April 13,2009 was tax freedom day. I think in 2011, tax freedom day comes about April 1, 2012!

Given the diversity of the human species, there is no “normal” human genome sequence. We are all mutants.

I sat through an economic update by a very senior economist today, one of the top in the world. I can't begin to tell you how depressing the news is. This was not a policital update but "governement intervntion" and "deficit" where on the negative side of EVERY slide. Frequent mention of Obama's policies and adding red tape to small business as a major issue for this countries economic stability. The growth of the feds balance sheet, the % of debt to GDP,,,,,afwul stuff.
If people continue to think this "tea party" stuff is all politics, they're nuts. The implications of Obamas polices are far reaching and will negtively impact the future of this country.

And in 3 more years of crazy spending the unemployement rate will still be a couple points higher then when the Obama took office. That's by his own projections. I see 10% or higher for at least the next 3.

The good news is that they all pretty much don't have a choice. Stop American spending and their own economies go into the tank.

CAPITAL CULTURE: Obamas invite famous guest chefs

By CARYN ROUSSEAU
Associated Press Writer

CHICAGO (AP) -- Think of it as take-out, but at the presidential level.

Since bringing their well-documented high-end appetites to the White House, President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have broken new gourmet ground by inviting in a steady stream of the nation's top culinary talents.

chicken or egg? The "choice" they have is to write they're own terms. Our chief lender is the only major communist country left. They've lived through poverty for eons and they have cash reserves in the TRILLIONS.... so tell me why they dont have a choice? Will theire leaders be voted out if the people suffer? Who is a military threat to China? No one, they dont need to spend bazillions on defense. They have nothing to lose and only to gain. If America goes down the crapper, they'll suffer, but so what, they're used to suffering comrade.
when this country needed people to chop through solid rock, by hand, for wages slightly above slavery, who did they bring here to do the work?
