Yes, you do. I've read the wealth of personal attacks, insults, and invectives you've used on people who voiced political opinions different than your own. I can't believe you deny it,when it's so patently obvious. Btw, as I also served in the military.

It doesn't, but you can't save you way to prosperity either. The best way is to expand out of it, and you can't do that in a depression, when nearly all demand for goods and services has evaporated. You look at the choices as a dichotomy, while I see it as a matter of degree. End of discussion.

"To even entertain the idea of this happening, of the United States of America not paying its bills, is irresponsible. It's absurd. We've got to pay our bills.," Mr. Obama said in a White House news conference. He reiterated that while he is willing to compromise over plans for deficit reduction, he will not accept using the debt limit as a bargaining chip.
"It simply allows the county to pay for spending that Congress has already committed to," he said. "These are bills that have already been racked up... You don't go out to dinner, then eat all you want and then leave without paying the check."posted @ Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 11:37

[quote][b]OCCountry[/b] - It is not a crime to actually post the videos and potentially charge to have them posted on your server. But if you offer to remove them for a fee then it's extortion. [/quote]
Along those lines, there are sites that post booking photos of people arrested, which is perfectly legal. However If they want the photo removed, they have to pay a $300 service fee, but I think the Georgia legislature recently passed a cap on the fee.
Just because some girl is turning tricks, does not mean she is any less of a victim if someone stabs, beats, rapes, her, etc.
The victims compensation fund only covers physical injury from serious violent crime, its not welfare.

[quote][b]HankRearden[/b] - @mpd0.59: Quite disingenuous of you to weep crocodile tears over sequestered spending on national defense when you KNOW FULL WELL that it was the POTUS who DEMANDED national defense make up half of all sequestration in the debt ceiling "deal" last year![/quote]
You must have the political equivalent of Alzheimers, because your mind is too screwed up with political rants to think straight. If you recall, it was the House Republicans who were using the full faith and credit of the nation in an extortion attempt with the debt ceiling as hostage. The only way POTUS could prevent default was to offer the Republicans a sequester deal, WHICH THEY FULLY ACCEPTED. Did you forget the last part?
[quote]It is dishonest of you to now pretend to care about "squeezing" the military when you applauded the deal last year.[/quote]
First, I was responding to @TeeWee: 's comment that the sequester was a good thing. My use of the article from a quite conservative publication, reveals that most of the sequester has yet to take effect and that the structure of the sequester, while saving some dollars, posed a long term threat to the nation's security. Second, I didn't applaud the sequester deal as you exaggerate it. The sequester was more carpet bombing than surgical striking. If by applaud you mean I preferred the sequester deal to a default on the debt, it would be accurate, like preferring to have your electricity turned off than your water. Also, moderate Republicans came out in favor of the sequester as opposed to the alternative.
[quote] POTUS and your Democrat party KNEW GOP would ultimately capitulate and reinstate the sequestered spending, [/quote]
So you're admitting the GOP doesn't have brain capable of logical and critical thinking.
[quote]... that which you evidently equate with "acquiring manhood" or some such nonsense.[/quote]
It was a reference to Boehner finally standing up to the radical elements of his party after the Cruz ship diaster. Sorry you missed that but your brain was evidently shorted.
[quote]Nice of you to pretend to care about the military but past comments indicate otherwise. [/quote]
No one, especially some rightwing flag waving maniac like you, who wears his patriotism on his sleeve, questions my patriotism. Nothing like saying you love America but clearly hating Americans, is it Hank?
[quote][b]TeeWee[/b] - The President's Sequester was begining to have a positive effect of slightly curbing government spending which accounts for the slight up-tick in the economy. We must curb government spending and stick to a solid realistic budget. [/quote]
'From Merely Stupid to Dangerous: The Sequester’s Effects on National and Economic Security'
Oct 14, 2013
By Daniel Halper
A new report on sequestration's impact on defense from the Bipartisan Policy Center:
Because of the structure of defense spending, our national security forces and defense industry have been able to continue operating under sequestration, but not without permanent damage. The full brunt of the cuts hasn’t hit yet, and if we go down the sequester path for too long, we won’t be able to reverse the devastating impacts. It isn’t primarily the size of either the federal budget or the defense budget that poses problems; it is the dramatic change in the composition of those budgets over the decade—entitlements are pushing out investments. And sequester worsens that trend.
Essential government services, especially in defense, are not being performed, and will not be if sequester continues. The combination of sequester cuts and unaddressed cost increases will erode force readiness, stall modernization, and reduce the fighting forces by at least 50% by 2021. The impact of the defense sequester on spending, which drives the economic impact, will double in FY 14 and triple in FY 15, compared to FY 13.
