So you think the defence budget should have the largest chunk of the federal budget? More important than education, social security, employment and unemployment benefits, pensions, police, health care, highways, infrastructure and so on.
Ah, education, private and state pensions, police, none interstate highways, bridges, power poles, etc. are all, STATES OBLIGATIONS!!!
Tell me Jacques, beside DoD schools, name us ONE Federal elementary school, Middle School, High School, College, University?!?
Why should I,as a resident of Florida, have to pay for the pension of a school teacher, fireman, police officer, etc. in California?

America finally knows what President Obama meant when he said he intended to “fundamentally transform America.” He aimed to make this country unrecognizable to its Founding Fathers, and he’s done just that.
Obama has reversed the role of the federal government – instead of looking like the world’s hegemonic superpower,...
Really? The Founding Fathers intended hegemony? Where is that stated in the Constitution that you allege to be so dear to you?

Wow! Brennan has the transcript of the three wise men at the Kenyan hut who prophesied Obama's presidency?

If he were born in Kenya, his mother could have obtained his US citizenship pro forma by merely applying. But birfoons know that the three wise men advised Ann to smuggle her child back into the US using a Hogwarts invisibility cloak so that he could one day be POTUS!

Wowee Zowee, what a great fable! Such a great fable it MUST BE TRUE!

Except that it makes no sense whatsoever and is contrary to the facts.

Boo Hoo.

Perfectly Legal: The Covert Campaign to Rig our Tax System to Benefit the Super Rich- and Cheat Everyone Else
http://tinyurl.com/ydf6r6 / April 18, 2004
One of the country's top investigative reporters reveals how the richest people within the top 1 percent of the country has rigged the tax code and other laws in its favor.
Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter David Cay Johnston has been breaking pieces of this story on the front page of The New York Times for nine years, work for which one business school professor calls him ìthe de facto chief tax enforcement officer of the United Statesî. With Perfectly Legal, he puts the whole shocking narrative together in a way that will stir up media attention and make readers angry about the state of our country. And he has sound advice on what to do.

1945: US flag raised over Iwo Jima

On 19 February, after four days of naval and air bombardment had pounded the beaches and weakened Japanese defences, the 4th and 5th Marine Divisions landed on the south side of the island under the overall command of Vice-Admiral Richmond Kelly Turner.

After a day of little resistance, the enemy fought back in earnest.

Hidden in fortified caves and pillboxes linked by a series of tunnels they relentlessly attacked the Americans with artillery fire, grenades and other explosives as well as from the air.

The last 24 hours have seen the fiercest fighting yet with every step of the way up the mountain defended by the Japanese.

But by 1035 local time the Marines had reached the summit of Mt Suribachi.

Reporting from the US base in Guam, Admiral Chester W Nimitz said so far the battle had cost 5,372 casualties, including 644 dead, and that US carrier-based aircraft flying over the Bonin Islands north of Iwo Jima had destroyed three enemy planes.

Obama's Recovery A Flop Of Historical Proportions

Some might argue that the anemic post-recession growth rate under Obama has resulted from his having inherited a worse recession than most. There's little doubt that he inherited a particularly long (18-month) and significant recession. But the historical record suggests that, pre-Obama, the general rule was: the worse the recession (or depression), the better the recovery.
In other words, one would have expected such a severe downturn to be followed by a particularly strong stretch of economic growth. That, of course, hasn't happened.
But it has historically. If we look only at the six postwar recessions that lasted at least half as long (that is, at least nine months) as the recession Obama inherited, we find the following:
Average real quarterly GDP growth in the two years coming out of those recessions was 6.2%. The 2.4% figure under Obama has been a mere 39% of that — which, come to think of it, roughly matches Obama's current approval rating.

Only Congress can raise or lower tax rates.

Boy? The old man with a child's mentality uses the term, "boy"? Pathetic.

In Rougie's fantasy world, only Dem Presidents raise taxes and only Republican Congresses lower taxes.

Grow up!

When QEI came out, the stock market zoomed upwards. And when QEI ended, it crashed.
Then they came out with QEII and again the stock market zoomed and again it crashed when QEII ended.
So what did the Fed do? Why the started QEIII and again the stock market zoomed. Now, what do you expect will happen to the stock market when QEIII ends?
Well, all they wanted it do do is get Obummer through the election!!! And after that, they don't give a damn because they got what they wanted, another four years in the White House.
Oh, my broker told me to stay out of the market so I bought to repoed houses as rental units.
