Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) does not think it is “logical” to achieve a balanced federal budget “from the standpoint of a whole economy” because the relationship between budget and government is different from that of budget and individual.

At the U.S. Capitol on Thursday, CNSNews.com asked Frank about the “fiscal cliff” talks between President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio): “During these ongoing negotiations would you like to see an attempt to balance the federal budget? And if so,in what year?” …

I don’t think a man choosing to hook up with another man is logical.

Remember, this is a “man” unable to discern the difference between the posterior orifices of males and females.

Women. I've seen women wear jackets that way.

IIRC, he had some surgery above the waistline...elbow, shoulder, whatever.

It made news for the obvious reason at the time, not to mention his apology for appearing unkempt on the House floor.

Here’s a guy, Barney Frank, who thinks having his stool pushed in by another man is logical.
Yeah, everybody should listen to Barney Frank.

The pure and simple and indisputable fact is that, liberalism is not logical. That cannot be argued.

Barney Frank on Balancing the Budget: “I Don’t Think Balance is Logical”

Barney does have a point.

When the federal government is able to print, with impunity, any amount of money they wish to spend, then, balancing a budget makes no sense, since, there would be no need to balance anything. An unending supply of phoney money, printed at will, makes having a balanced budget, "highly illogical". If I could be allowed to pay for all of my needs and wants with grains of sand, why would I worry about balancing my budget?

That logical thinking and his many years in Washington is a reason we are in the shape we are in.

B.S., Bawney. Several states balance their budgets every year. TN is one of them. It's a matter of prioritizing.

Bawney Fwank: “I Don’t Think Balance is Logical.”

Milton Miteybad: Bawney...do you think borrowing $1.3 trillion a year from the Chinese is logical? I don't. In fact, it's kinda idiotic. Some might say stultifying stupid. Frighteningly feckless, one might conclude. But nobody with a brain would call that logical.

With all due respect, there is no difference between the male & female posterior orifices.

What Barney has a problem with is distinguishing between the proper usage of the male posterior and female anterior orifices.

In lower animals such as congress critters, we use posterior (caudal) designations. Barney Frank spends so little time standing erect (ewww!) that he does not qualify for "anterior" in the "frontal" sense.

It was, however, just a joke.

Merry Christmas, FReind.

What is the logical progression of this statement? "Because it's different" is completely meaningless reasoning and a gobbledy-gook wall of words to mislead to nowhere.

The greedy, insane, lawless pervert expects people to nod their heads and agree to insane nothingness?
