Stop wasteful spending? Okay, lets do away with the money losing US post office, all farm, dairy, and ranch federal subsidies, and veteran's pension. If this makes you mad, so be it. My suggestions make as much sense as ... More ›

I don't know Alvin - the first thing I think of is to stop the spending (find the arterial bleed, so to speak and start there) Logically, of course. When a person has an arterial bleed out - the first course of action is ... More ›
