Here’s the plan:

STEP 1: All Americans for a government that abides by the Constitution change their local laws to allow the keeping of chickens by any taxpaying American.

STEP 2: Once taxpayers are allowed to keep chickens, we amend the law to allow all taxpayers to keep hogs. (After all, we wouldn’t want to discriminate now, would we?)

STEP 3: Hogs proliferate from sea to shining sea.

STEP 4: Government workers begin to disappear.

STEP 5: Missing government workers are replaced with new government workers.

STEP 6: The new government workers disappear too.

STEP 7: In short order, no one wants to be a government worker.

STEP 8: With a shrinking pool of government workers, fewer laws interfering with private enterprise are enacted.

STEP 9: Smaller government at all levels - federal, state, city, and local - result in HUGE SAVINGS being realized with the tax dollars returned to the taxpayers.

STEP 10: After eating off the FAT OF THE LAND, the tens of millions of hogs are sold to the Chinese for hefty profit, thereby paying off the debt caused by said government workers. America is now debt free.

Proof yet again that everything you need to know to fix America can be found by watching DEADWOOD.

P.S. Did I forget to mention that because of the methane produced by the hogs, America also becomes energy independent resulting in the total collapse of the Middle Eastern countries that produce oil? That, too!

Debbie Wasserman Schultz says 120,000 members of her district to not have health insurance. That is 120,000 out of 640,000, or 19% in a district comprised of Ft Lauderdale suburbs, and with a median income of $44,000.

That does not add up.

It's depressing to see.
This is a reflection of what our press failed to report to the people and what the voters failed to educate themselves on.

#1 You get people hating on Bush over the economy when it was instead the Democrats (frank) who ordered the rules in loans for housing to change and cause so many bad loans.

#2 People blame Bush and then elect more of the Democrats who caused all the problems to fix the economy.

$4 To make it all worse, the people elect a good looking half black President who was worshiping in an America hating, white hating church.

Now we have all this socialism/communism and we hope to God a lot of CONSERVATIVE Republicans come along the next two elections to repeal a bad health bill law.

Many people who voted Obama have buyers remorse IMO.

Do you think I don’t wish I could agree with you? I’m a fifty-eight year old man who has to side with Conservatism.

There is NOTHING Conservative whatsoever about backing a man like John MeCain. He is as antithetical to our cause as a man claiming to be on our side can be.

If we can’t be honest with ourselves, there is no future.

Exactly. Seems like that comment should have been stricken from the record too, since the dems refused to put in language requiring Congress to be on the same plan.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is reassuring immigration reform advocates that he is committed to working with Congress on a comprehensive bill to fix a “broken immigration system.”

In a videotaped message presented on giant screens to thousands marching on the National Mall, Obama warned of the cost of inaction. He said problems with today’s immigration system include families being torn apart, employers gaming the system and police officers struggling to keep communities safe.
