Lost has alot of spunk. Seeing on t.v star treck and doing are two different animals. As a whole we all need to pitch in, but i fear this will not happen. History has ALWAYS played the same cards over and over.

If they stopped overspending the budget ,stop giving billions of dollars to countries so that they can have a base somewhere , stop paying so much for stuff on those black budgets ,Nasa, cut 50% off of everything and no war stuff for about 5 yrs. I think we could actually get OUT of debt or close to it.




If they just didnt raise spending for 5 years the economy would outgrow the debt....crazy Idea I know....but I do harbor hope.





SAME here.

Parrot without a stance joins the obviously solution because he has no clue. See what I did there? I attacked your character, like you did mine.

I gave you a compliment, then talked about our situation here. No Attack intended.

You are actually the only launching personal attacks here.

Oh, I'm sorry I thought you meant that I lived in a Star Trek world and didn't have anything of substance to offer.

No not at all. You seem to have alot of spunk. Get up and go. Then i talked about star treck. Meaning, i wish it was like that but in realality not. it, america, is a different animal.

I agree, as a straight up history buff...well we are rome, and our coin is less then 10% gold at the moment, and getting worse by the day.

You really think that if they didn't spend for 5 years we would be in the positives?

OOPS

I starred that, though the timing was off, because it is a great quote from a great man.

If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? If you wrong us shall we not revenge?

The golden rule. I'll check myself and give you the respect deserved. But that last line!

Yeah, I didn't mean to derail the thread. I try to mix up some humor between talking points. I'm sure Jamie can take care of herself. I'll refrain from being chivalrous.

Back on topic. We all have to pay our way in life. It may be hard at times but you keep driving on. You do the best you can. If you don't like your station in life, change it. We all know there are real hurdles to leap. I just gave my interpretation of what I think is right. I have to be honest with myself when it's all said and done.

No, but we would be quickly closing the gap...at near break neck speed.

It was relevant to the topic. People were belittling others for their lifestyle. If you are paying your way, who am I to say you're wrong. I want most people to be happy. I get no joy from misery. Yes, the timing was a little off by a page but at you know why I quoted it now. You have to love heated debates.
