I've been reading on this budget deal.

If a Dem says they won, an R says they won, and the White house takes credit, the truth is We got F****D. R's got F****D, D's got F****D. We all got it.

I have taken it upon myself to try doing this budget thing here at home.

I just told my wife I saved $250,000 this morning by deciding not to buy a new John Deere Combine. Tomorrow Im not going to sign up for flying lessons and Im not going to buy a LearJet.


Lets see who can beat that.

Hey, if you saved a quarter mil not buying that combine you can spend $125k on a car and still have saved $125k.

If you really want to play this game right you'll need to fire up the inkjet printer when you get home.

Thats a different game. This is budgeting. That is spending. But that would be a fun game as well.

It's budgeting when you spend a bunch of money you don't have knowing that you're just going to print new bills until you devalue the currency to the point you can pay them.

Its my game. Don't tell me how to run my game. Go make up your own game if you want.

I would like to buy a couple of houses to rent out, but didn't. About 200-400k saved right there! :thumb:

This budget was a joke. The taxpayers lost big time.
