   Wrightwinger posted on Main Page The Lobby  A nice summary of our current fiscal nightmare, in a short editorial.

   Wrightwinger posted on Main Page The Lobby  Folks, I just was working on my taxes, and there is a chart showing US spending and Taxes taken in on the back couple of pages of the form instructions that ought to win the fall election. If our leaders have the intestinal fortitude (now didn't I say that nicely ) to use it. I didn't have time to copy it, and the file wouldn't let me cut and paste it.

   Bettijo  WW, give us the url to this site, please. I Googled US Spending and Taxes and got a lot of hits. The one below was interesting. Well, it would not paste right as it was in a chart; but here is link.

   Wrightwinger  Here is a link to the graphs:

http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1040a.pd
f


Once the PDF loads, go to page 86 and look at the pie charts. Compare the amount of borrowing on the one on the left, with the amount of some areas of public spending on the right chart. A lot could be said about several areas. Look at the definitions of some of the segments of the charts described below. We are in a world of hurt!

   Yottyhere  When do you go over the line from being a Collector to being a Hoarder ?

   Gerty  Have you noticed that we become concerned about "hoarding" during the Winter months? It's probably because we are staying indoors a lot more and beginning to get a wee bit claustrophobic.

As for the difference between Collector and Hoarder---if the thingys you keep are in order, filed, crated neatly or displayed behind glass---you're probably a 'Collector'. If the thingys you keep are all over the place....

Just my opinion from observation and (rolling my eyes upward and looking innocent ) my own habits.

   Betty Jean  If you eat pizza and drink a soda, then throw the containers AT the 6' pile of trash by the bed, you might be a hoarder.

I watch those shows for the reason I used to watch Anna Nicole Smith's reality show~I can't believe there really are people like that. I notice the bathrooms and kitchens especially in those homes and wonder how they do certain things without the facilities available. God bless those people who go in to clean up and try to help them not be that way. G. A. G.

   Gerty  Miss Betty Jean, I consider myself among the 'hoarders'--however, I wouldn't think of eating pizza in bed and certainly would not throw the container anywhere. IMO what you describe is a piggie! : )

We hoarders are a pitiable group of nice people who simply cannot throw things away---we can find a use for just about anything! You might look upon us as the original 'greenies'; we never met stuff that couldn't be use again--it would be such a waste to throw it out.

OTOH I have come to believe it may be a character flaw.

   Escaped commieny  NO flaw Miss Gerty, prudence, I remember Grampy saving string and straightening used nails. So, if I spend money on something I expect it to last forever, if not, repair, reuse, recycle into a new use. I don't mean recycle greenie style, so I guess I am a hoarder, but my shed has produced some really weird projects of unintended uses so I agree. Yeah, for greenies before they were hijacked to watermelons

   Rollingcow  I tend to hang on to things as well, Gerty. My Grandmother always said that if you didn't keep you'd want it someday. When cleaning out my sewing room I realized that I'd had some of that stuff in there for years and never used it so I finally tossed it out. I understand hanging on to things, but the people on that show have a real problem letting things go-I mean really, hanging on to half a pizza until it turns black is sick. I watched it once and only once, the whole thing made me feel ill.

   Yottyhere  It's okay Gerty, I didn't know there was a TV show either. And I was just thinking a Hoarder was just someone who collected a lot of things...not nut jobs :D

   Gerty  We have made it a rule in our house--NOthing to eat from China--that is if we can tell. Sometimes they don't print that some of the ingredients going to make up the product are from China.

   Yottyhere  Yup we're with Gerty ..only stuff MADE IN THE USA for the puggies and the kits....and if I have any doubts we simply don't buy it...
I use a extra helping of green beans for weight control for the pugs so if I don't have any USA treats on hand they get some green beans and they love'em...

   Escaped commieny  I have a bag of Ol'Roy Grilled Strips, 'made with real chicken'marketed by Wal-Mart. I thought after the pet food problems with China last year that Walmart would be OK. Should I throw it out? I get PigEars from Petco that are USA and some rawhides from Brazil. I can't find any kind of code that would indicate where the chicken came from.

   Escaped commieny  Green beans are good. When our first Beaglie had kidney problems I had to boil a chick breast, rice, and green peas for her; the Gerber baby 'hotdogs' and green beans were her other meal. Didn't know about the wt control aspect will definitely keep that in mind for the BEAR, Molly Mayhem

   Rollingcow  All our pooches get American made. The Sheltie girls were getting a bit on the fat and lazy side until Mr. Gus arrived and put them on an exercise routine. Around the Barn it pays to keep your feet up on the couch during the Shelnados.

   Wrightwinger posted on Coffee Klatch  Some days a fellow just cannot win. I got trashed yesterday by some liberal cousins for a post on facebook, today on the Lucianne main page a lot of conservative folks beat me up commenting on the fact that I have accrued a lot of unused sick days as a teacher which could be used for insurance purposes. (I thought I was doing good not using those up! ) And now Nu stuck her tongue out at me. I think I'll climb up in the pout tree!

   Yottyhere  This is just a suggestion but when I have days like that I find going out and sitting in the driveway and eating worms usually makes things better.

ALTHOUGH if you scoot up that tree and find a faulty limb to sit on it might fall down go BOOM breaking both of your arms and legs THEN you get to use up some of those unused sick days.
You decide.

6 on one side 1/2 a dozen on the other as to what to do.

   Escaped commieny  I bite off the heads, and suck out the juice,
And throw the skins away!
Nobody knows how fat I grow,
On worms three times a day!

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,
I think I'll go eat worms!
Big fat juicy ones,
Eensie weensy squeensy ones,
See how they wiggle and squirm!

   Wrightwinger posted on Main Page The Lobby  I just received a forwarded e-mail that said that the White House was not going to celebrate Christmas this year, but rather some sort of non-religious winter celebration instead. If true, this is very disturbing to me in a lot of ways. I haven't had time to vet the information at all, but it seems to be in the style of this bunch of, well, I don't use that language, folks.

   Yottyhere  Everything I have found makes it seem like Christmas events are going on as usual at 1600 Penn Av Michelle just recently accepted the WH christmas tree from WIsconsin......
I hold forwarded emails in very low esteem .....I don't think they would pull "that" stunt esp in a election year.....now if he gets a second term ...all bets are off :(
November 11 at 14:34 EST .


   Surfhut  Agree with Yotty. Looks to me like Christmas traditional events will be going on as usual. I assume the Obamas will be like the Clintons: hold their noses while doing Christmas tradition. You really can't trust those forwarded emails.

   MsCharlotteVale  The Obamas had Mao ornaments on their trees. The Clintons had ornaments made out of condoms. Talk about disrespecting and trashing Christmas symbols.

   Wrightwinger posted on Main Page The Lobby  Here is a fascinating article about the deficits in our Fed. Gov't during the last century and a bit. All in inflation adjusted dollars and some really nice graphs. I have a really liberal cousin, who posted a cartoon on FB showing Clinton as a model balanced budget spender, and this article was my reply.
