“You never responded about funding the two wars, not to mention the economy. HOW was this nation supposed to fund two wars? You can reference the "original documents of OUR country", but you still never answered the the question regarding HOW this nation was supposed to fund the wars.”

“You never responded as to where you where hiding on 9-12-2001. Obama has spent more in unfunded social programs in just his first term. I would rather go in debt defending myself than giving it away to the fraud that is rampant in social programs today! Wanna talk unfunded...Wait till the ACA's teeth grab hold.”
“The government employees who weren't paid, who in turn, did not spend money to various local establishments. The business owners of national parks who suffered a severe down trend of tourist revenue. Shall we talk to Mr. Cruz and Mr. Lee regarding their stupefying stunt? It's called CAUSE & EFFECT. Do you have difficulty connecting the dots?”

“"The government employees who weren't paid."
Sleep with dogs, wake up with fleas.
"who in turn, did not spend money to various local establishments."
Broken Window Fallacy. That money was stolen from tax livestock in the first place, and given to those who produce ZILCH. How much wealth could have been generated, had that money remained in the hands of private entrepreneurs, rather than given to unproductive, bribed bureaucrats? Read Bastiat's parable of the Broken Window
"The business owners of national parks who suffered a severe down trend of tourist revenue"
Business owners only "lost" revenue, because government, that was supposedly "closed," was busy barricading, and preventing people from entering the parks, where they could do business with those business owners. Didn't think that talking point through...did ya?
"Shall we talk to Mr. Cruz and Mr. Lee regarding their stupefying stunt?"
You need to be more clear in your arguments. What stunt? What was so stupefying? Weren't they merely attempting to actually avoid the default which lies down our current spending trajectory?
"Do you have difficulty connecting the dots?"
I am very skilled at recognizing complex relationships. I am merely attempting to educate you.”
“You still never answered about the two wars. Where was this money going to come from? Economic Einstein, please tell me how this nation is supposed to pay for two wars, bust the economy, then right itself, when the TEA PARTY obstructs incessantly? HOW? Please go into finite detail when you respond.”

“Well there Utah...if you look at the original documents of OUR country...Defending it, is actually one of the Governments jobs. I don't know what rock you were under on 9-11-2001 but we remained safe for a decade!”
“Clearly you don't keep up on stuff. The deficit is under 3 trillion for the 1st time in 5 years. You're a genius. Golly! Are you going to credit Bush 2 for this? This nation was in a tailspin after G-dub. How was Pres. Obama supposed to fix the sinking ship of the U-S-of-A, when your elected folk decided to obstruct and obfuscate to an embarrassing level? Have your heard of Sen. Mike Lee?”

“So fighting to decrease spending when there is still a deficit( and deficit spending)is obstructionism? I would hate to be your accountant? Wait till your hero's ACA kicks in( if it ever gets off the ground) Obama's first two terms will seem like chump change!”
“What part of two wars on a credit card we can't pay off don't you get? Tell your garbage to the garbage you keep company with. We are paying $$$$ for TWO wars we couldn't afford. Shall I type SLOWER?”

“Taxpayers in 2012 spent $220 billion on the national debt's interest. That's just on interest no principal. Tell your tea stories to the uneducated. There are two types of people in the world..Those who don't understand compounded interest and those who earn it. Where do you fall??????”
“You're right. Let's go after those who bring the guns into the country illegally. Let's go after those who sell to criminals. You're absolutely right. Let's go after the "money men". You'd be rather surprised who's funding the weaponry.”

“Actually, the drug cartels from Mexico, Colombia, etc. come to the US to buy their weapons because it is best for easily buying a large number of high-powered weapons.”

“Is there really a problem with guns coming into the US "illegally"? We have quite a decent selection of legal guns you know.”
