Hey Girl, I kind of like that idea. Every day Harry Reid and the Senate DO NOT see fit to pass a budget they break the LAW that requires them to pass a budget. Ole Harry simply never brings a budget to the Senate floor for a vote. So he should be jailed...................but then people in Congress are never jailed and they can break the LAW anytime they want in order to get re-elected.

Those of you old enough to remember the Cold War may remember something called the Brezhnev Doctrine. This was the rule concocted by the Soviet tyrants that basically said a nation could never regain freedom once it fell under communist rule.

In my simple way of looking at such matters, this rule translated into: “What’s mine is mine, what’s yours is negotiable.”

We have a somewhat similar situation with American fiscal policy. The proponents of bigger government have openly stated that their top goal – both from a policy perspective and political perspective – is higher taxes.

But what they...
