    How hard is it to count?  Apparently it's pretty hard. Most 2nd Graders are pretty good at counting, but apparently "Congressional Econimists" are not.

    "WASHINGTON – The economic stimulus law added between 1 million to 2.1 million workers to employment rolls by the end of last year, a new report released Tuesday by congressional economists said."

    So which is it?  A 1.1 million job discrepancy.

    And people think the Government can manage Health Care?

    Congressional Economist?

      You mean we can't bitch? Our only alternative to incompetent politicians is to run for office ourselves?

      Nah, I'll just bitch!

        Sure, you can bitch; I never said you can't, but, hey, bitching doesn't get you closer to ground zero is all I'm saying...

            I think the entire system is broken, myself. There is no way to repair it at this point in history. I merely state that in order to really know what's going, you have to be on the inside. I wouldn't run for office if someone was holding a gun to my head, quite honestly.

              I have a theory about term limits, matter of fact if you read the Vince Flynn novel of the same name you may understand how term limits can be quite effective!

                That is a steak I can sink my teeth into! Two terms for Senators, and three for Representatives sounds good.

                  I think you should google Vince Flynn and termlimits to get my meaning.

    How is my running for office relevant to an inability to be accountable to the people?

      Don't knock something you yourself have not tried.

    at least I can send my grade school aged children to the store with a list and a 10 dollar bill and get the correct change back.
