The top numbers cruncher for Congress warned that the federal government increasingly risks sending the country into a "fiscal crisis," projecting that unless cuts are made, within a decade the national debt could reach nearly 100 percent of all annual economic activity. 


That's like having $50,000 in debt on a $50,000-a-year salary.   

Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas Elmendorf, on the heels of a report pegging the 2011 budget deficit at a record $1.5 trillion, testified before the Senate Budget Committee on the risks of inaction. He said cumulative deficits over the next 10 years could run anywhere from $7 trillion to $12 trillion.  


He warned that making budget cuts too deep, too fast could be "disruptive" to the economic recovery at a fragile time. But he said Congress will have to start balancing the budget soon if it wants to head off, or at least minimize, the chance of a national debt-driven fiscal calamity in the future.  


"The longer that you wait to make those policy changes ... the greater the negative consequences (of the national debt) will be," he said.   

Invoking recent economic crises in countries like Ireland and Greece, Elmendorf said waiting too long to curb spending and reduce the debt can have a host of consequences which all add up -- investors get nervous that the government can't finance its debt; the government loses the ability to respond to emergencies while interest rates eat up more and more of the budget pie; and taxes rise. 


If such short-term policies are extended, Elmendorf said, the deficit would reach nearly $12 trillion over the decade, pushing the debt to almost 100 percent of GDP.  


"Spending as a share of our national income is at the highest level in 60 years. Revenue as a share of our national income is at its lowest level in 60 years. No wonder that we are headed for the largest deficit ever




Unadulterated Evil

William P. Frasca


The disgusting uncompassionate, unmerciful display of barbaric slaughter administered by assassin Jared Lee Loughner at Tucson Arizona on Saturday January 8, 2011 was an act of pure unadulterated evil. This heathen, of the highest caliber, self proclaimed himself as a modern day Grimm Reaper, consisting of judge, jury and executioner. His actions deserve no merit or heroics, but it did without any question or doubt inflict pointless unwarranted harm, misery, grief and hardship to his victims and their families.


Even with all this catastrophe, misfortune and calamity, the American people always rise to the top by showing relentless resilience, strength and courage in the face of extreme danger.


Such as 74 year old retired Army Col. Bill Badger, who was grazed in the back of his head by a shot fired at him by the gunman and was bleeding profusely. He still managed to subdue the suspect by forcing him to the ground while he tired to reload his 9mm with a magazine containing another 33 bullets. God Bless him. Here’s proof why our armed forces are the best in the world, with the outstanding brave, unselfish leadership capabilities shown by this hero. He was not the only one that stood tall and held their ground by confronting the suspect. There was also Joe Zamudio and others who united in a group effort in assisting in his apprehension, holding this vicious monster, to the ground, until the authorities came, ending his senseless killing spree.


This tragedy we as American are presently facing, and are being emotional affected by all, with the needless massacre in Arizona has nothing to do with an individual’s right to peacefully, without any violence, to voice or express, their Constitutional rights. Certain Political demigods and the unsympathetic (bought and sold) idiots of the Press, have no shame or compassion as to use this misery and senseless act of violence as an offensive maneuver to illegally limit and induce forced government intervention on our precious Right to Freedom of Speech, as long as it is acceptable to the Progressive Puppet Masters.


They have the audacity to blame the actions of a crazed individual on all those who passively offer an endorsed positive logical diplomatic solutions and criticism to all those who abuse our American ideologies, by attempting to negatively change the status quo which is slowly but surely being replaced with Big Brother, Socialistic ideals. The free thinker has sounds are a soothing calm voice in these turbulent times of arrogant behavior submitted by political arrogance and forced submission.


Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik compounded this division and should have stayed within his boundaries which are to uphold the law. His comments questions and answers should have been directed to the case in question. Instead he demonstrated a lack of professionalism, by switching hats and becoming an inexperienced self determined physiologist, judge journalist and political analyst by making this unorthodox statement, "When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government. The anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous."


He immediately became a champion to all the liberal loons, by condemning individuals who exercise their proper right of freedom of speech. It seems as though he’s trying to hide his own deficiencies, in this vile incident by placing the blame on someone else.


The bigotry of the Socialist Marxist Liberal Democrat reeks with the stench of hypocrisy. This act of unnecessary violence, which injured and took the lives of innocence, which included a nine year old child was not only despicable, but beyond the belief any decent human comprehension.


Our hearts, prayers and support must be extended to all involved associated with this cruel brutal sadistic (man made disaster and terror of extreme magnitude) with our deepest sympathy.


We must all form a united defensive wall to protect our civilization from the random acts of violence and destruction against all who have the courage to say what’s on their minds, by honoring their convictions and serve for greater good of our Country. This is not a third world nation; this is the United States of America.


This was obviously, and you don’t have to be Sigmund Freud to realize that this was enacted by an unstable, mentally deranged individual, which unfortunately resurrects its ugly head, with no limitations or boundaries, until it’s too late, within our society.


Warning signs of his instability were brought to the surface, throughout his life, by a variety of individuals, who notified the Authorities. Regrettably, it seems as though the minimum degree of acknowledgement and enforcement were used, because he did nothing wrong illegally. His physiological stability and evaluation became non-existent and his irrational mental state and behavior were left defenseless which progressively escalating into a savage state of wickedness.


Freedom of speech must forever be preserved and never stymied by mindless demigods that display an unfortunate lack of confidence. Their imposing will and ultimate control must never be accepted. Their antics must always be protested non-violently, diplomatically, without any hurtful physical intent, aggression or hostility.  We must defend by all lawful means possible. Our Constitution must be forever preserved without ever yielding to their belligerent, antagonistic unacceptable dominance.


They without rhyme or reason threatened anyone who questions their regal illogical, unintelligent behavior with unscrupulous animosity. This violent dialog and behavior portrayed by them, whose goal is forced control that is projected by the Socialist Marxist Liberal Democrats and the Liberal media must never be tolerated is or endorsed. Peaceful dialog must always prevail and be totally endorsed by all.



We must always defend our valued God Given Unalienable Rights. We must never be intimidated or stymied by illogical accusations with no substance, which forces to impose a muzzle on the voices of the opinionated righteousness. The predetermined unsubstantiated guilt to silence the populous must always be eliminated. Our freedoms and the United States Constitution must stand firm without yielding or submitting to the power hungry, self serving and the self identifying twenty-first century Monarchs of endorsed Socialist rule. We are Americans and all expressions of non violent, peaceful protest and dialog must be forever preserved, without intimidations, manipulations, fear and arm twisting control.
