...and the next one will be about jobs and the budget and daling with unions budget-busting crap is just ONE part of the pie. There shouldn't be anything not related to nat'l security that isn't on the table for cuts. If we're spending money on things we shouldn't be, those things need to be cut and cut hard. It's time for fiscal responsibility, not more of the same crap that got us into this mess and then dug the hole a LOT deeper. Personally, I think that the left has always wanted to see themselves being teh reformers and now they're getting schooled in that arena by the right and it pisses them off. Here's the scoop - we learned from the efforts of the "walking in circles carrying signs" left and are starting to use those same tactics and now you're whining about it. Too bad, so sad...
Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush
