Throughout the course of the budget debate, Democratic Senators have repeatedly suggested their budget contains a “balanced approach,” a rhetorical description that has no accounting value. (Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) went even further last night and repeatedly said his party’s plan called for “balancing the budget.”)
But as Sen. Sessions pointed out this morning, “They know they don’t have a balanced budget. They won’t tell the American people they don’t have one. They just use the word. But it’s not in their document. Where and when do we hold people accountable in this United States Senate for an accurate [description] of legislation? It’s wrong.”
To view for yourself the budget tables with the Democrats’ own numbers (in other words, before one even begins to strip out all the gimmicks and accounting tricks), please click here: http://1.usa.gov/YwdsbM. Note that cumulative deficits will amount to $5.198 trillion, and the nation’s gross debt will climb to $24.365 trillion by 2023.
“They know they don’t have a balanced budget. They won’t tell the people they don’t have one….they just use the word!” Sessions exclaimed. Where and when do we hold people accountable in this US Senate for an accurate statement of legislation?! It’s wrong! So we have counted, so far (this is pretty incredible) they’ve used the word balance 191 times! Does that reflect a guilty conscience, or something? That we want people to think we have a balanced budget, we think we have a plan to get at a balanced budget? Oh! We have a balanced approach…what does that mean? It means ZERO. The American people need to know, this plan has no vision for America. ”

gopweeklyaddress: 3/23/13 – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) Delivers Weekly GOP Address On The 1st Democrat Budget In 4 Years:
For the first time in four years, Senate Democrats have produced a budget, yet unfortunately their spending blueprint grows the government, not the economy, according to U.S. Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) in the Weekly Republican Address. By contrast, the budget Republicans passed in the House of Representatives this week reduces spending and debt and balances in 10 years. “Budgets are economic documents, but they’re much more than that. Budgets reflect the moral choices we make as a nation and shape the kind of society we will build for the future,” Lee says. “We want dollars and decisions in your hands and not in the hands of bureaucrats. We know that if you can keep more of your hard-earned money, you’ll use it to help your community, to save for your child’s college tuition, and to deploy it in ways that will create jobs and grow your local economy.” The Senate Democratic budget, by contrast, raises taxes, increases spending and debt and never balances. “They think you don’t send enough of your money to Washington,” Lee says.

Gun Control Politics & Political Price! – Gun Control Laws – Wake Up America -Lou Dobbs:
I’m almost sorry to lay this next one on you….much has been written about this stomach-churning video, entitled, Cultural Marxism: a CIS story 1/2 (yes, there’s a part 2) at the Conversation:
BTW, for anyone who can’t get through it, try skipping to 3:45 when it gets cooking. The argument is between a woman with a “Lesbian Avenger” t-shirt (these people really seem to groove on novelty sexual politics t-shirts), who only likes women and probably doesn’t like dudes, and a “trans-woman,” which some people might call a “dude,” who’s arguing she’s a woman. This does not go over well with the pro-woman feminist lesbian.
And before anyone says I’m bigoted against the transgendered, hey, I’m just quoting the lesbian on this point.
An incredible twist comes when a gay guy says he’s a lesbian at 6:20 or so. That’s where it kicks up to an Inception type level.
And by the way, if you did get all the way through the video, like I did, don’t call yourself a Hero just yet.
There’s a whole Part 2.
Two key quotes: “She’s delusional” and “You’re a f*&%ing lunatic.” Another key quote: “No one wants to date you.”
The greatest exercise in Platonic logic comes at 5:50. Let me quote the gay guy/lesbian (I don’t know) verbatim. He gets very angry when, as he claims, the lesbian attempts to define his body. He objects thus:
“I’m not talking about my body! I never mentioned my body! I actually asked you to try to define my body and you seemed unable to give an answer!”
I don’t know. I think the general point is that we must stop encouraging the Dumb to be “political.”
I would urge you to head to the Conversation for more thoughts on what you just watched, (if you got past the first 30 seconds.) Some of the YouTube comments are fairly entertaining, as well.

Via Mediaite: Mark Levin Goes Off On Bill O’Reilly For His ‘Hit’ On Michele Bachmann:
3/21/13 – On Thursday night, conservative radio host Mark Levin attacked Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and the “has-beens” at CNN for their “hit” on Rep. Michele Bachmann after she was caught racing away from a CNN reporter confronting her over factually inaccurate claims about the president’s “lavish” White House living. On Tuesday, CNN reporter Dana Bash attempted to confront Bachmann over her claims that the president has an extraordinarily luxurious lifestyle, but was famously met with deflection and a race away from the camera. On The O’Reilly Factor last night, the eponymous Fox host criticized Bachmann for her “trivial attacks on President Obama [that] are obscuring serious problems in this country,” emphasizing that the congresswoman’s “small ball” behavior “trivializes” the real issues at hand.
