bubo_sibiricus: douchebag/hater: Get back to me after the Senate Dems have even OFFERED a budget.

But that's not their job. That's the executive branch's job. For farks' sake, for all the whining you idiots do about the Constitution, it would help if you read the farking thing once in a while.


Actually, all budgetary bills begin in the House. It's the House's role to get a budget out. Then the senate offers its set of compromises, and then finally, the two chambers get an agreed upon budget that is then sent to the president for signature (or veto). So no, the Senate Democrats do not get to set the budget.

I propose a bill where these hunters kill themselves for shooting polar bears. Big game trophies my ass. Is your penis really so small that you have to display large dead animals in your home? Imagine the story..."It was a dangerous hunt. It started with a lovely morning of eggs, bacon, pancakes and coffee. (We needed our energy to sit in the same spot for hours on end). Jim Bob and I set on the hunt. We sat, hidden in the wilderness all morning. The hunt was slow at first. We hasn't seen a polar bear for three hours. Jim Bob and I started to question the morality of hunting helpless animals for sport. We questioned why we were cursed with such small penises. It almost had to resort to a game of 'I'll show you mine if hou show me yours', but in a totally not-gay way. But then it happened, our target came with in range of our rifles. Our penises grew to a commanding 3 inches that day. I took the shot. My heart was pounding from the danger involved. What if I missed and the polar bear shot back. I came to my senses and realized that it was just a farking polar bear trying to find food. All I have to do is shoot. I took aim. I fired. Direct hit! That bear didn't even put up a fight! And they say bears are dangerous, tough-as-nails creatures. Not today my adversary, not today. We went on to kill 40 more that trip, fueled by the adrenaline of our first kill. We were truly athletes in a sport of killing animals with guns".

"This isn't a campaign studio, It's the Senate," Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., complained on the Senate floor Friday. "We've got responsibilities to meet. Let's meet them. And leave the politics out of it for once."

..Mitch McConnell said this? Mitch "Our only goal is to make Obama a one-term President" McConnell? He had the farking BALLS to say that?

Fark that turtlefaced douchebucket.

parkthebus: Hunting does not equal killing. The shot and harvest is just a tiny part of it. I recognize that this is impossible for those who haven't experienced it to understand.

One thing I will say, is that no hunter should be ashamed of their joy in success. The practice, the scouting, the pursuit, and the joy of family and friends in your success is rewarding and uplifting. It's a wonderful thing that human beings have done since the beginning of time. Humans have always killed living things to exist, it's part of being a human being.


My dad tells me stories of how he used to go hunting in the woods behind his farm in upstate New York with an unloaded gun. He'd hunt, find a deer, line it up, pull the trigger, then hear the empty click . He didn't wanna kill it, he wanted the chase. So I totally get what ya saying.

Apparently, the difference between budgets and appropriations is as misunderstood as the difference between budget deficit and debt.

The President is required to submit a budget to Congress. A budget is a list of proposed spending. Each house of Congress must adopt a budget resolution and attempt to resolve the differences.

Spending bill, or appropriations, must originate in the House, be approved by the Senate, and then signed by the President. Appropriations authorize actual spending toward the budget.

A budget deficit (or surplus) is the difference between anticipated revenues and anticipated spending. The debt is the amount actually borrowed against the full faith and credit of the United States.

In this administration, the President did submit a budget that got no votes. The House submitted its own budget which passed the House but hasn't been brought up for a vote in the Senate. The Senate has done nothing with budgets.

Having worked in a lot of businesses that did budgets, I know that every year we came up with a month-by-month budget. Then, each month we had an executive review of budget vs. actual. Each department had a budget. Sales had a budget of what they were going to sell, manufacturing had a budget of what they were going to make, purchasing had a budget of what they were going to buy, etc. Each month, there was a review of the previous month - here's the budget, here's the actual. What was the difference and why was there a difference, how does that difference affect the budgets of future months or years?

Does there exist such an analysis in government?

Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: FTA: "Republicans resisted for a while Friday, contending the only reason Reid wanted the vote now on the bill long sought by hunters and sport fishermen was to benefit Democratic incumbent Jon Tester's re-election prospects in a tossup race in Montana that could determine which party runs the Senate next year."

Yes, how dare the Democrats try to trick Republicans into establishing a voting record that voters can look at to determine if the candidate's values align with their own. Those sneaky bastards.


They're only doing the right thing in order to look good! It's not fair that voters prefer politicians who do the right thing!
