Some Of Today's Best Emails ...
Over 40% of social security recipients are not retired. If the recipients were only retired folks there would be no problem. Quite planning retired people blame Washington for misappropriating our retirement funds.
Geez - a huge number of families are in trouble, no jobs and underwater on their homes. What makes the government think it should escape the same pain?
Heck, cut federal salaries 20% across the board, start selling oil leases, and get business working again. That would mean DOING something, not a likely choice for Professor Obama. He'll be naming a study group soon.

My friends on the left say "The economy is our generation's chance to demonstrate a unified sacrifice." Really? The same folks on the left follow that sentence up with:
"We should raise taxes on the rich, they can afford it."
Until we ALL sacrifice, get a fair tax approach to 'revenue' generation, cut the countless, wasteful layers of government, and start to wean people off the government gravy train, this country will continue its free-fall.
