President Obama told ABC News that the current national debt, which is approaching $17 trillion, is "sustainable," and he does not feel the need to try to balance the budget. Do you agree?

Common Core – It Just Keeps Getting Worse

"Without any input from Congress, the Obama administration is implementing “Common Core” a new national public school curriculum championed by domestic terrorist Bill Ayers. Both of my sons’ teachers complained about it last fall when we went to curriculum night. Their beef was more over how the new curriculum put the kids behind in some areas while forcing them to re-teach other subjects the children learned in earlier grades. If the problems ended there it wouldn’t be such a big deal, but like everything with progressives, the more we get to know their policies, the worse they get.

Did you know that Common Core includes a national data mining racket?"

HEADLINE: Dems preserve US-Mexico food stamp 'partnership,' while USDA prepares for meat inspector furloughs

"Salmonella outbreaks. E. coli outbreaks. Millions of dollars in economic losses.

These are among the scenarios the Obama administration warned about last month as it claimed the sequester would force the U.S. Department of Agriculture to furlough meat inspectors.

But while the administration prepares to take that step, it continues to pursue a "partnership" with the Mexican government to "raise awareness" about food stamps among immigrants from that country. When a top Senate Republican proposed cutting off funds for that program last week -- in the form of an amendment to a budget resolution -- Democrats on the Budget Committee shot it down."

Typical. And proves the point Obama is going for maximum pain on the citizenship, which no President has done before.

It's pretty tough to get into debt without spending.

And, I know some say that spending has nothing to do with the debt...I say wake up. Stop letting certain people dumb you has everything to do with spending. And, if we don't demand it stop, and the debt keeps growing...will the government do what they're doing in Cyprus?

So if so many here believe spending is out of control...why do so many disagree with the facts, figures and suggested solutions?

Obama said he prided himself on feeling no obligation in the past to the interests of the generous donors who made his election and re-election possible. Though paradoxically he also said he wanted "to make sure the voices of the people are actually heard in the debates that are going to be taking place". So, he'll take money to listen to the voices of the privileged, but not do their bidding? RIGHT!

May I humbly suggest he could hear more voices, more clearly if he mingled with the public he serves? Perhaps the White House could hold open tours for the public! Why has no one in his administration thought of that? And volunteers could manage those tours, to keep costs down!

But, of course, those are what have just been cancelled. Meanwhile, three calligraphers reportedly remain on staff. I suppose their services are needed for the special hand-lettered, gold-foiled invitations sent to the nobles who are willing to pay for an audience with the King. And, we will soon hear

And while we drown in debt and millions are unemployed...

Noble Americans can buy time with the president for a suggested donation of $500,000 to his new campaign group, Organizing for Action.

Yes, the announcement offering access to the president for cold, hard cash was made openly and with total transparency. But it was also made without shame.

It's the third version of Obama's original monster campaign machine, Obama for America, which then morphed into a re-election campaign machine, Organizing for America, on the third day of his first term.

It has now re-launched again as Organizing for Action (OFA) - a non-profit, tax-exempt group headed by his former campaign advisers. Apparently no longer "for America", the group might just as well be called Organizing for Obama's Agenda.

Its mission: to support the president in his attempt to achieve enactment of gun control, environmental policies and immigration reform.

Some facts you ought to know...

Federal spending was $30,548,000,000.00 more in the first five months of fiscal 2013 than it was during the first five months of fiscal 2012.

The federal government is also spending at a much faster pace this year than it did before President Barack Obama took office.

In the first five months of fiscal 2008 (the last full fiscal year before Obama took office), the federal government spent $1,230,412,000,000.00. That is $274,315,000,000.00 less than the $1,504,547,000,000.00 that the federal government spent in the first five months of this fiscal year.

So far this fiscal year, the federal government is spending an average of about $300,909,400,000.00 per month. If the government maintained that average pace for all 12 months of the fiscal year, it would spend a total of $3,610,912,800,000.00.

UN Small Arms Treaty

"The Obama administration, which has wavered on the treaty, signaled Friday that it was willing to support the accord. “The United States is steadfast in its commitment to achieve a strong and effective Arms Trade Treaty that helps address the adverse effects of the international arms trade on global peace and stability,” Secretary of State John F. Kerry said in a statement. “We will not support any treaty that would be inconsistent with U.S. law and the rights of American citizens under our Constitution, including the Second Amendment.”

Yeah, right, Kerry. Why don't you go throw someone else's medals over the White House fence again?

OldMan74 states: "Kozy62 sounds like a Tea party republican first class, Too dab they are on their way out."

OldMan74 after your done entertaining yourself do you have a response as to why you find what Obama is doing as acceptable with this budget and $17 trillion dollar deficit?

Your constructive opinion would be what? How about you telling us why you support this debt and the fact this President is violating the constitution?

What if our Schools decided they don't feel a need to balance a budget?

What if our local government decided they don't feel a need to balance a budget?

What if our State decided they don't feel a need to balance a budget?

Those three entities would be charged with violating the constitution and held accountable for their actions.

“My goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance."

Those words are frightening. He claims the budget is balanced but nobody needs to know it's balanced we are just suppose to trust him it is. He really expects people to believe this he really does.

"My goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that we are going to be bringing in more revenue,” Obama said."

Did you ever listen carefully to his words? Does anyone? This man is an absolutely clueless?

His goals? Always start out with the same words.

HOW DO WE? How do we grow the economy? How do we put people back to work? If we do, we will bring in more revenue?

How can people not see through this? He has no plans. NOTHING. Whatever happen to this is MY GOAL and I will accomplish this for the American people? The reason you put me in office.

Who is "WE". So when the country collapses. I bet his words will quickly change to...I didn't fail, we d

You see, I don't belong to the Tea Party...have never been to a meeting. I do however let you offer an opinion whether I agree or not and do not call you names.

The Tea Party members are not trying to destroy the country as I see it...they have ideas that they believe make it better.

So, if you believe in the Constitution then I have a right to post factual information. If you are not interested in fact...can't make you. If you only believe info whether true or false only because the info is coming from a party source, you are missing a lot.

Whatever, the Constitution was written for all of us.
