    the sick people are at it again. that is not me above, someone is playing sick, demented games. i've reported this person(s) and will continue to. from what happened yesterday, i am confident that the main person behind this is the one who has posted frequently in the past as "The Devil", "Satan" and "Lucifer" – how fitting. i am going to do everything in my power, professionally and legally, to get this individual stopped. i am very sick about this and also very angry. the wheels are in motion. this person has threatened me on other threads. death threats. he/she will be stopped.

    no more cnn for me. any other comments you read with my screen name are NOT me. sick, evil individual.....

    I doubt reporting will do much good. But really the childish obnoxious posting will never go completely away. Kind of like animal feces.

    We need a balanced budget more that we need to increase a debt that we already can't pay off.
    If we don't reduce the debt we will default. We are paying more in interest only payments than we use for the largest five items in the budget. We borrow 40% of our present budget and then pay out $88,000,000,000 in interest.
    The USA should file bankruptcy and get it over with. We should then nationalize all foreign investments in the USA and begine again with a debt ceiling that can be paid off the following year.
    We don't need a balanced budget – we need a fiscally responsible budget that never carries a debt that can't be paid off.
