    He said we need to cut the deficit and the debt, and that to do that we needed to have a sequester and cut social security.    We don't have enough money to pay for the maimed Vets coming home, but tough shit, let's make more.  

    We are not being paid to be the world's police, and I'm not happy to foot the bill for it either.   We have the biggest defense budget on the planet, and it isn't enough.    If he wants war, let him raise taxes to pay for it.   How much you want to bet that'll never happen.  

    I have three politically incorrect, straight, white male, grandchildren; and I don't care if you think they're important or not.

      His argument for Chained CPI and the Catfood Commission.

      Spending several tens of billions on a new "military police action" might well help him realize his goal.

      Dogs from the street can have all the desirable qualities that one could want from pet dogs. Most adopted stray dogs are usually humble and exceptionally faithful to their owners as if they are grateful for this kindness. -- H.M. Bhumibol Adulyadej
