Not that you asked, this is what i want

A f'g budget.

Hey Gubmint. No f'g hiding behind your lack of balls (oops, sorry bout that) omnibus crap. Take a f'g vote that is recorded so your constituents know what you have done on "their" behalf.

Just like the good old days when the Potus submitted his plan. Both the Senate and House worked their committees. Came up with a plan each. Took it to a reconciliation special committee and agreed on a BUDGET. So all the parts of Gubmint knew what they had to spend and what the f'g plan was.

The last time that we had a full-on, real-life federal budget that was signed into law, it was 1997. Bill Clinton was president, and Newt Gingrich was speaker of the House

Hey, that means a lot of the folks with some level of cognizance of citizenship, federalism and US governance are sadly in the minority and based on demographics probably not even born back then, not that that was their fault (tell me again where my safe space is? Psst it's under the desk when the Nukes fly, jerk)

Gee, EdMass, ya think the Gubmint is out of control? Yes I do. And we keep electing these fools.

It ain't rocket science. They came up with the f'g process in the 1700's.

@mimi That's an f (apostrophe) g budget. Hard to see the apostrophe so crammed up against the f.

I was always paid by the taxpayer, in science. I was grateful. Then that became even more competitive and I lost. Unemployed. Budget (lol) looks down again.

Hey! my dear friends or soon-to-be's, JtC could use the donations to keep this site functioning for those of us who can still see the life preserver or flotsam in the water.

@EdMass Really? Smile

I just figured it was due to the new formatting of C99. You had no control where the apostrophe fell between the f and the g. Still, I really had to zoom on my 27" display to make sure it was an apostrophe there.

to stand up and admit just what they're doing. Makes it so much easier to face angry constituents at home if they can't prove their representative directly screwed them. Good point, and my first take is so they don't have to explain anything. How sick that the "high point" was under the Newt, yuck, still cannot stand that guy.

@lizzyh7 I do believe that that continued-up-until-that-point tradition wasn't the 'high point' but where it was changed to 'downhill from here'. To quote the sneering wolf in Little Red Riding Hood's Grandma's 'jammies: 'All the better to eat you up, my dear.'

Psychopathy is not a political position, whether labeled 'conservatism', 'centrism' or 'left'.

A tin labeled 'coffee' may be a can of worms or pathology identified by a lack of empathy/willingness to harm others to achieve personal desires.

@Ellen North Thank you for correcting that, a low point indeed.
