The budget committee failure shows that there is something seriously wrong with our government. Anyone with an eighth grade knowledge of math can look at the numbers and see in about two minutes that we're going to have to raise taxes ... cut entitlements and cut defense spending to make any real progress. The problem is the committee members were too worried about being reelected do what they knew had to be done.

This is for the Soundoff caller who satirically complained about not having his tribe's language as a phone selection choice. ... If his tribe was huge, it would be. It's about economics, not discrimination. English speakers, get over it!

Somethin' should be done. ... Examples should start somewhere. ... Violence. Violence on old by the young. ... When is it gonna stop? ... Old people, start settin' examples.
