Tonawanda News — Sequester, sequester, sequester! They voted to let the entire burden of deficit reduction fall squarely on the middle class. That is what a statement from Obama said. But Mr. Obama you are the president. You caused this! You’re the one who ran up the debt! You keep running it up and you never stop. You taxing the rich is not gonna help the deficit. You let this happen. You cannot blame this on anyone else but yourself.

Maybe the new Pope, together with the Catholic Church, will now teach that the rapture is for real. And they’ll teach their people that the word of the Bible is real.

They always worried about what would happen when the computers took over, but the computers are unconscious. My neighbor’s house has been abandoned for three years and the debt has gone from $30,000 to $64,000. They didn’t even put a for sale sign on that house! The bank computer or whatever is in charge of that house, cause there is like no conscious human being in charge, just some computer is charging interest rates and penalties. The bank probably isn’t even in America. It’s just unconscious how a computer treats people. There is no caring to a computer.

According to the White House web site and some bloggers, as compared to the Gross Domestic Product, the deficit is shrinking. Ok, this is a spin move like never before. The actual dollar deficit ... again ... actual dollar deficit in 2008 was a tad over $10 trillion. Five years later it’s $16 trillion. Um ... but throw the GDP in there and it’s less. Fox news has nothing to do with this as the numbers do not lie. The GDP is nowhere near where it needs to be ... ask the millions of unemployed Americans if they’re better off now than five years ago.
