    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Casting House Republicans as stubborn deadbeats, President Barack Obama sought Thursday to discredit House Republicans in upcoming fiscal fights by painting them as roadblocks to a thriving middle class. **SNIP** “Shutting down the government just because I’m for keeping it open — that’s not an economic plan,” Obama said, wiping sweat from his face in a muggy port warehouse. “Threatening that you won’t pay the bills in this country, when we’ve already racked up those bills, that’s not an economic plan — that’s just being a deadbeat.”

    Today President Obama told the American people that the US government is not a deadbeat. Depending on the definition used, he is wrong. According to the cambridge dictionary, there are two major definitions of a deadbeat: (1) a person who is not willing to work, does not behave in a responsible way and does not fit into ordinary society (2) a person or company that is not willing to pay debts If we used the first definition, I would contend that the US federal government is both "not willing to work" and "does not behave in a responsible way."

    President Obama's campaign has raised millions of dollars, but officials in Springfield Illinois are still griping about an upaid bill from a 2008 campaign rally. When he was a candidate in August of 2008, Barack Obama used Springfield as a backdrop to introduce Joe Biden as his running mate. However Springfield Alderman Frank Edwards tells WLS that the Obama campaign has refused to pay $55,000 it owes in police overtime costs: "If you're going to go after your citizens for bills they owe you then everybody's in. And that's just kind of the way I look at it. I think...

    PRESIDENT Barack Obama was fined £120 ($193) for not paying the London congestion charge during his state visit to Britain, The Sun reported today. The President was hit with the penalty for his motorcade. London mayor Boris Johnson wanted the £10 ($15) congestion fee to be paid for the President's armor-plated limo - dubbed "The Beast" - and all other cars during his visit in May. But cameras only managed to photograph one of the vehicles in Obama's motorcade because they were driving so close together. That is the subject of the $193 fine.

Today, there are 2.6 million (the name was changed to Incapacity Benefit in 1995). We have, tragically, encouraged some people to arrange their affairs around qualifying for the allowance. Those who suffer most are not the grumbling taxpayers – they have rather more pressing things to grumble about – but the people who have been trapped in the squalor of dependency. Before you rage about scroungers, imagine you would feel if you relied – relied – upon a weekly handout of £91.40 (the maximum...

    A jeweler to the stars is one of the city's worst deadbeat dads -- and a wanted man for stiffing his ex-wife and son out of half a million dollars in court-ordered support. Niraj Chaturvedi, a gem dealer who supplied baubles to Harry Winston and Fred Leighton jewelers, bolted for Allentown, Pa., after a Manhattan judge ruled he owed his family $8,500 a month since 2004. Chaturvedi's total of $472,000 puts him in the rogue's gallery of New York's worst child-support deadbeats, authorities say. Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Laura Drager found that Chaturvedi, 54, sabotaged his ex-wife's share of marital...

    Saying spending is poised to grow more than 50% faster than revenues, the state's chief budget analyst called on lawmakers Wednesday to immediately begin cutting government programs or raising taxes to address a budget shortfall that has ballooned to $10 billion. Nonpartisan Legislative Analyst Elizabeth G. Hill, whom lawmakers of both parties look to for guidance on fiscal matters, said the cooling housing market, high energy prices and a batch of overly optimistic assumptions in the last budget are hitting state coffers hard. "The Legislature should start now" curbing spending and finding new revenue, she said. "All the easy solutions...

    Three years ago, Ted Mondale's new company signed a $550,000 contract with Hennepin County to provide a computer software program that was supposed to revolutionize the way data from real estate records is made available over the Internet. The revolution is off to a slow start. Though the county has paid $314,000 to Nazca Solutions Inc., which Mondale cofounded as part of a career move from politics into technology, there is still no program ready for public use. Mondale had originally promised a finished product in six months and, following two years of tinkering, said it would be ready last...

    Axis Of Evil: Russia says the launch of Iran's nuclear power plant will be delayed because Tehran is behind in making construction payments. Two possibilities come immediately to mind, both of them encouraging. First, if Tehran is truly delinquent on its payments to the state-run Atomstroiexport, it's another confirmation that the regime's hold on the country has grown tenuous and that needed change could come with light prodding in the right places. Second, it's possible that this is merely a way for Russia to save face while it backs off its aid to a rogue nation it has supported. The...

    Maybe America didn't want to see a deadbeat dad Superman who stopped fighting for "the American way" after all.A mere days after the much-hyped Bryan Singer film "Superman Returns" opened, reports are coming in that the film is struggling at the box office. In fact, Fox News reports that the box office take is dropping as word of mouth spreads about the film.The new film had upset some Superman purists before its opening, once news surfaced that the plot of the movie had the Man of Steel learning that girlfriend Lois Lane had given birth to his illegitimate son. Others...

    Another thing that I'm doing is - - my son was killed in 2004, so I'm not paying my taxes for 2004. If I get a letter from the IRS, I'm gonna say, you know what, this war is illegal; this is why this war is illegal. This war is immoral; this is why this war is immoral. You killed my son for this. I don't owe you anything. And if I live to be a million, I won't owe you a penny. And I want them to come after me, because unlike what you've been doing with the war...

    Milan, IL-Should the biological father of a soldier killed in the line of duty receive death benefits even though he never met his daughter? Sgt. Jessica Housby of Rock Island was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq in February. The unmarried 23 year old was raised by her mother and step-father. But the state contacted her biological father Tony Holbrook in his prison cell in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa and informed him that as the biological father of Jessica, he was entitled to survivor's benefits, and is in line to receive more than 137- thousand dollars in the coming weeks.

    Debt issued by banks can never be repaid in full. Some people can repay everything while others cannot repay anything at all. All this is because every time banks lend money, they expect the borrower to pay back the money plus interest. But where do they expect people to earn the interest? Here is the problem: Let's say the federal reserve prints a trillion dollars. Banks put that money into circulation by lending it to the people. The people invest the money and somehow they pay it back with interest. The question is where do they get the money to...

    This is a Roger Clinton update. A couple of years ago, we requested help in tracking down Roger Clinton to demand that he meet his legal obligations for child support. We got some good leads from public comments and private communications. Today, we are informed that Roger Clinton has fallen behind in his payments again. He currently owes $20,000. A complaint has been filed in the State of Tennessee. The last permanent address I was able to obtain for him was in Torrance, Calif. in 2002, where his home was being foreclosed. If anyone - including Uncle Bill and...

    Buried deep in the appalling announcement of Cuba's new place on the UN's Human Rights Commission was the name of the country that nominated that outpost of tyranny for the honor: Argentina. It's not the first time the southernmost country in the New World has done the bidding of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. Last December, a Cuban dissident who sought de-facto asylum in Havana's Argentine embassy was unexpectedly denied an exit visa and forced back into the hands of Castro's waiting agents. Such events underline Argentina's political direction. A few years ago, Argentina was one of the U.S.'s major non-NATO...
