PITTSBURGH - Democrats shaped a set of principles Saturday that commits the party to guaranteed health care for all, heading off a potentially divisive debate and edging the party closer to the position of Barack Obama's defeated rival, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
And Hugo Chavez, El Presidente de Venezuela, will be the new Secretary of Health and Human Services because the US will need Venezuelan oil to finance this government boondoggle!

It is just plain DUMB to PROMISE more federal programs when they can't afford the ones we have now! Both Social Security and Medicare are getting weaker and weaker BY THE DAY. The last thing we need is ANOTHER goverment sponsored program!

How about instead both McCain and Obama VOW FISCAL RESPOSIBILITY for a change? That would mean they'd have to STOP policing the world. Bring troops home from all foreign countries. Then we'd have more jobs HERE in this country. The military could protect our borders HERE.
What a novel idea!

The US Treasury just runs the presses faster and prints larger denomination bills! The C-note will become like a quarter compared to the value of the money. Hyper inflation will run rampant and you'll need a bucket full of paper money just to buy a loaf of bread, just like pre-war Germany!
