Out of the Blue

Looks like the thunderstorms that have battered much of the country lately are still hanging around here today, and I think they are going to derail our plans. I guess that will work out for Hudson the wonder dog, as our presence will make this less miserable for her, though that's not to say she won't be miserable. Oh well.

Don't you love how people use the world liberal like it's a derogatory term.

Let's be honest, if it were a republican President who bailed out all these banks and companies, we'd never hear the end of "corporate welfare" yada yada. Obama does it, it's ok, no one cares.

Remember kids it's alright to add record debt as long as you're a democrat. Is that pretty much the moral of the story or what?

I have a memory. Bush signed TARP into law, in case you forgot. It was better than a full blown depression. You can knock down as many straw-men as you want to.

Who said this: "Deficits don't matter." Surly a liberal, right? Oh wait, no that was Dick Cheney, when he was VP during Bush's spending spree.

I've said time and time again I didn't like Bush, I didn't support his spending either. Being a fiscal conservative for me comes before putting an R or D anywhere because I realize both parties have a spending addiction. I think the argument comes from who does one side with more on how things are spent. Democrats tend to be all for political correctness and handing out welfare like candy to those who have means to work. Republicans generally focus on military spending which in my mind is also way out of control.

Fact of the matter is, we need to start cutting spending everywhere, because plain and simple it's not sustainable the rate we're going.
