Political parties’s fortunes rise and fall, lately in the blink of an eye. But for the past decade, Americans’ trust in their government has been steadily going south. Last year, that confidence reached a near-historic low, according to a poll conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press: Only 22 percent of those surveyed said they trusted government in Washington “almost always or most of the time.”

(CNN) – Sarah Palin’s favorability rating among Republicans continues to slide as the former vice presidential nominee mulls a White House bid, according to a new survey.

A Washington Post/ABC News poll released Wednesday indicates 58 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents give Palin high marks, a 30-point drop from her favorability rating among the same group in the weeks leading up to the 2008 presidential election. It also marks a 12-point drop from a Washington Post/ABC News poll last fall when the former Alaska governor traveled the country on behalf of a string of congressional candidates.

Putting on the brakes after two years of big spending increases, President Barack Obama unveiled a $3.7 trillion budget plan Monday that would freeze or reduce some safety-net programs for the nation’s poor but turn aside Republican demands for more drastic cuts to shrink the government to where it was before he took office.

The 10-year blueprint makes “tough choices and sacrifices,” Obama said in his official budget message. Yet the plan, which sets the stage for this week’s nasty congressional fight over cuts in the budget year that’s already more than one-third over, steers clear of deeply controversial long-term problem areas such as Social Security and Medicare.

The congress is at it again. With the republicans saying there needs to be a decrease in federal spending. The Dem’s of course want to keep things status quo or even increase federal spending. They blindly believe that if spending is cut then it will hurt economic recovery.

What these idiots fail to realize is there has been little to no economic recovery. The economy is in the toilet. There’s no jobs, prices on just about everything seem to be going up on a weekly basis. But the Dems believe we can spend our way out of debt.

I don’t know a lot of things, but here is what I do know:

If you make four hundred dollars a week and your bills are three hundred and fifty a week that leaves you with fifty. Now I need gas and groceries with what’s left. That means I don’t go out and buy that new iPod I really want, because I can’t friggin afford it.

This whole theory is falling on deaf ears in Washington, particularly with the democrats.

It’s really simple guys you can’t spend your way out of debt. I am sure you have heard that before.

The economy might actually improve if some of the BS spending is cut out. Maybe take some of that money you save giving out food stamps and free housing to illegal immagrants and put it to use creating jobs for the people who actually have lived here their whole lives, are citizens and have paid taxes.

Just a thought…

Now Choke On It.
