    Default Judge Napolitano on FOX

    Probably the best five minutes of political commentary ever broadcast on a mainstream media outlet.

    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack.” -- Gen. George S. Patton

    The truth hurts.Napolitano for President!
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Judge Napolitano is THE MAN!
     "He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    He raises some interesting questions and makes some good points along the way, but I don't think there's anything nefarious at play here with the two parties. The problem is that when you are in government, it's like the old "if all you have is bullets, everything looks like a target" scenario: cutting spending is an untenable solution because that's all government has the capability to do these days--spend money to "solve problems."

    The reason it's untenable is because the voting population doesn't know what they want. If you ask people if government should be bigger or smaller, the majority says they want a smaller government and fewer taxes (at least for them). However, if you poll on individual issues, people want to increase spending on everything. From education to defense to helping the poor and sick, justifications can be made on every single issue that government seemingly has the responsibility to do more, not less.

    Even the Tea Party rallies were indicative of this. Everyone wanted a smaller government and a balanced budget, but when people were asked if SS or Medicare should be touched (which they would have to be to arrive at a balanced budget, they said no. It's this incongruity that drives the government we have.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
