Promise and politics in President's speech on debt reduction
Shared sacrifice. The idea that we are all in this together, and all need to help improve the situation by giving something toward the cause.

This is the basic message behind the President's speech yesterday on the debt and how to tackle it.

Nobody who has any logic whatsoever believes that you can overcome this debt problem by simply eliminating spending. Must be why the GOP is presenting exactly that.

Still, the question is will the progressives stand firm and refuse to bow down to the ludicrous proposals submitted by guru Ryan?

Time will tell....

1. When almost half of the adult population is out of work these words are just
meaningless.... It amazes me how our President and our congress are held hostage during this jobless recovery... To suggest that the progressives, or the professional left as they are known by the White house, need to stand firm is a bit confounding.... because in the past they are told to stop whining and get with the program, but now the country needs them to hold the tide against Paul Ryan? It has been revealed that he doesn't have the math skills to get himself out of debt, let alone this country...... The President needs to return his tax cuts along with all the wealthy in this country if the pain is to be truly shared by everyone in this country..... And for god sake don't keep up the rhetoric that it's not Governments job to create jobs..... That is precisely what they need to do-CREATE JOBS...

2. federal deficit and wasteful spending
There is a lengthy article here ( ) regarding American federal funding of misandry. Often assumed by many to be solely related to retirement from active employment in ones senior years, Americas Social Security Act and Medicare has been a long time funder of misandry. The length of citations, although not exhaustive, seem necessary, as many refuse to look at the line items.
The unequal (even sexist) spending is rife through Americas Federal Government Budget as is illuminated by the attached SAVE document.
Economic transfer, allocation and reallocation: the redistribution of wealth has long been at the heart of misandry. Some women have openly wrote of some womens insatiable hunger for money to spend. Some radical feminists, getting in their pre-emptive strike, alleged that Fathers Rights and Mens Rights is all about men not wanting to share their money. The insatiable hunger remains unabated, taking your money, your states or provinces or national monies all.
If it is true that economics is the science of scarcity, and, that children inherit their nation: it is high time we relocate wasteful misandric spending towards our childrens future instead of spending it against them.
Americas budget would seem a national thing, especially at first glance. NOW began in America as did the UAW, as written before here at AM, both are now international and womens rights, all that they can get, rest atop NOW and UAWs agendas. / / / /
