Another question... I have asked many and even researched a little...

At the end of the day; what does having a national deficit really mean?

We are reminded over and over that we have this crippling deficit to pay. Who do we have to pay this debt to, and further more; why?

What does the deficit mean to you and I Joe Blow taxpayer? Also, why am I paying a bill I did not personally incur nor was asked if I minded co-signing?

I know this sounds a little naïve and further right than I normally go but... We still listen everyday to money being allocated for the flavor of the week crisis. Where does this money come from as my bank for some reason does not pay checks I don't have money in the bank to cover...

I guess I should be glad to be able to complain about where does the thousands of dollars my wife and I pay every month in taxes go as I am employed.

I however am not glad that my tax dollars are being used to write a check that I don't need to cash over and over...

From JM "Although the $1.7 trillion dollar budget deficit is the biggest it has ever been in the history of our nation, it still only represents 12% of the gross domestic product. This number is higher than economists would like, but it’s still less than what many other developed nations are borrowing as a percentage of GDP.

Why have you gone back on your words that you see no reason to communicate with me? I thought you signed off on that one!

I thought this was HMJC's blog.

Anyhoo... Although there seems to be an explanation; it still reeks of bovine fecal matter. It also does not clearly delineate why Joe Dirt is left holding the bag. It just doesn't hold water when we constantly endure "emergency" funding for the latest "crisis" when we are "overdrawn"

I know it is a lost cause; just frustrating as I have worked hard all of my life to finance my governments blunders and deadbeats. A kiss would be nice...

If we don't get our manufacturing base back in action in this country this nation will collapse at some point in time.

All real revenue comes from the private sector.

Our elected officials at all levels are overpaid and our government employees are paid more than they are worth.

A cow cannot live off of it's own milk.

I applaud the Re-Entry Coalition efforts as it is an uphill challenge from the get-go. The latest symposium was a good effort to try and get more entities to ...

http://www.weeklystandard.com/boys-will-be-boys-and-eventually-should-be-men/article/2006606 In an attempt to sojourn away from the geopolitical drama I ran across this article and had to chuckle but also fret a little bit. What I mean is todays “average” young man aged 18-30 looks at things a whole lot different it seems. Mom and Dad’s basement is ...
