Heard on the street.

A neighbor is a union leader, and faithful Democrat.

Asked how he is feeling, his wife responded that she wasn't sure yet. He's working on the taxes today, and might be very upset by day's end.

Says ever helpful yours truly; 'but, I thoght good Democrats like to pay taxes'.

Response: It depends how high they are. We've got to pay something for defense, but they're simply too high.

A Republican couldn't have said it better.

Taxes versus National debt ceiling

In reply to: Heard on the street.

at the end of the Reagan administration?... 2.7 trillion dollars

at the end of George Bush Seniors tenure?... 4.1 trillion

at the end of Clintons reign... 5.6 trillion dollars

5 years into G.W.'s period of compassionate conservatism... 9 TRILLION DOLLARS

It's not just about taxes... it's also about how much money the Fed spends!

My kids will probably put me out on an ice flow for the polar bears to eat since they will be busy paying the national debt 50 years from now. Sad On the bright side though... there won't be any ice flows or polar bears by then.;)

spell check only works so far doesn't it? And it drives me up the wall when people don't use "too" instead of "to"! Grin

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
