    Congratulations! You have COMPLETELY lived up to the stereotype.

    Your welcome.

    BTW, when you first look at the report and you’re on page 5 looking at the general overview, you will see the section that describes the money coming in and you’ll see various categories such as income tax, corporate tax, excise tax, etc.

    You will also see line items for taxes collected on things like pensions, unemployment insurance, social security and whatnot. Basically, taxes on checks that come FROM the treasury.

    You have to subtract that out of the total income.

    It’s like if you make $100 and give your kid $40 for something and he hands you back $20, saying he doesn’t need $40.

    You didn’t make $120.

    That’s why it’s important, while reading the report, to stop and think about what it is that you’re reading.

    You’re going to that about 1/6 of the budget goes to defense related items, 1/3 to assorted social spending and 1/2 to the various bureaucracies.

    Which will lead to bad language…

    I would NOT recommend the Congressional Budget Office. They are in business of BS and fantasy.

    Their mandate is literally to take the figures and assumptions they are given by congress and crunch them to produce an output, even when they KNOW the figures and assumptions are absurd.

    GIGO.

    Garbage In – Garbage Out

    Those who wish to get a truer picture of our fiscal condition should to to Treasury-dot-Gov and download the monthly treasury statements.

    They are far more readable than you might think.

    Fair warning… It may interfere with your ability to sleep at night.

    Yeah. The most recent Monthly Treasury Statement. (May) – Page 5.

    Our total ACTUAL income is $1.8T
    $450 Billion go to interest on the debt, leaving $1.35T

    We’re projected to spend $3.758T by the end of the year.

    3.75 – 1.35 = 2.40

    And now the deficit is over $2 Trillion while mathematically challenged drones insist it is only $600 Billion.

    What is Hillary’s tax situation. Or Al Gores?

    Or are we not supposed to ask that question about certain people?

  7. LameRandomName commented on Doonesbury 17 days ago

    So you believe in equal protection under the law, except on April 15th?

  8. LameRandomName commented on JumpStart about 1 month ago

    I like that kid.

    Malibu Mud Slide Victims…

    Yes, this was back when Gary still recognized the absurdities of HIS political team.

    That’s not the problem.

    Bad apples aside, we’ve got plenty of good teachers.

    The problem is a corrupt public union system combined with corrupt government.
