It was a budget – with no numbers. Listen in, share your feedback.

Republican\’t Party + Underpants Gnomes = Budget Alternative?

    This was one of the best Left of the Dials. You need a national audience, man.

    Why is it so damn difficult to find a republican that thinks for him/her self? You tell them the latest budget is not a budget at all, but they don’t seem capable of grasping that concept. It’s not like you came up with that all on your own Jeff. Yours isn’t the only voice that has piped up in disbelief about this “budget”.

    We are a nation of sheep. “Do as your told, believe what we say, do not think for yourself, the heads in Washington are smarter than you’ll ever be.” When did that start? The 40’s, maybe the 50’s. Then again in the 70’s and 80’s. I just don’t know.

    The White House told the CEO of GM to step down. The only reason the White House had any power to do that is because GM went whining for money. GM should have just filed for chapter 11, restructured the company, and gone from there. But noooooo, greed ruled the day, and now the Nation is shocked by the federal government telling a private business how to proceed. This is just the beginning of the American People being forced to wake up and pay attention. Or at least I hope that will be one of the benefits of all this mess.
