War Pigs

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'til their judgement day comes
Yeah!

Now in darkness world stops turning
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees the war pig's crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
Oh lord yeah!
Truth is no SIN

Oh by the way. 155,000 new jobs just keeps up with population growth. That means it sucks! 220,000 people joined the job market in December but 220,000 dropped out at the same time. Zeroed out. January/February will see decreases as holiday workers are laid off and the barely hanging on businesses start to close. Happy New Year!!!

I have your answer!!
It's from a wingnut named Dweeb, the post appears on the prededing page.
he's crazy, but you'll probably like his answer, because you're as crazy as he.
""Congress controlls all spending, revenue and borrowing.""
----------
There's your answer, right from another part of your schizoid brain.
Which begs the question. Why would you ask so stupid a question if you
'd already answered it??
Or is your paranoid mind split into different personalities from drug abuse??
I thought so.
You have to identify the source of the money.

The latest idea I heard was identical to the Confederacy when they just started printing money without any security backing it. You are aware of what happened to their economy after they started doing this, aren't you?
If you've been keeping up with the issue, you'd know that the latest idiotic idea from the White House is for Geithner to just turn the printin presses on so everyone thinks there's money to spend.
That stupid idea got shot down before it cleared the window of the Oval Office.

What's the next stupid idea from Obama?

Where's the money going to come from to pay for Obama's government?

Dufus, the president has nothing to do with determining what money is spent. Read the goddam Constitution.
On the day the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government, the total public debt was 8 trillion dollars.

How about you and Obama do something neither of you have ever done before - read the goddam Constitution.
You and Obama won't look like such idiots if you do that.


So, the debt the past two years belongs to Boehner.

Seems one of Obama's heroes is about to turn room temperature. Hugo Chavez said to be on death's door. Power struggle already starting to break out in Venezuela. Let us hope free thinking people prevail.

I understand that you know as much about how the Constitution defines the functions of government as Obama. Both of you could do everyone a favor and read the Constitution at least once in your life.
Congress controlls all spending, revenue and borrowing.
Between 2001 with the dot-com bust and the Arab jihad declaring a global war on the United States and January, 2007, when the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of the government, the total public debt went from 5 to 8 trillion dollars.
In January, 2007, when the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government, the Republicans gave to them an annual deficit of 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollars DURING A WAR.
Without a war (Obama surrendered to the Taliban right away) the Democrats increased the annual deficit ONE THOUSAND PERCENT.
Without a war the Democrats doubled the total public debt.
And, we have nothing... nada... zilch... to show for all that money spent.
And, today, we don't even have a plan for government. We haven't had a plan for government since Obama became president.
You still haven't answered this question:
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
You do know that if you don't answer that question, the government collapses and the existence of the United States ends, right?
You wouldn't be committing treason and attempting to end the existence of the United States, would you?
I'm still waiting for that list. When can I expect it.

I get it. You want things the way they were prior to the Bush Administration & Republicans to take us off that path. Me too.
Wrong. Obviously you haven't been reading my posts. I want to cut every federal program that is not in the constitution. All of them. Repeal the 16th and 17th amendments while we are at it. Put the power back in the hands of the states and the people where it belongs. You would not like my government, being the libtard that you are, because there would be a lot of 'For Sale or Lease' signs in D.C.

Raising the tax rates & cutting that much spending would have sent us into a deep depression.

Hi and HappyNewYear Carol.
While I agree with you to some extent (that everybody need to get out of the claws of the dens), we need to design a truly post-racial world and it starts with thoughts and words.
Let the message of life, liberty and happiness reign. Every ninth-wit buzz word need to be deconstructed faster than LIBS can make up another one. Not impossible, but surely not much harder than all the other almost insurmountable tasks ahead of us when nobody knows what is money any more....
I agree. Republicans have to start putting their words into actions - and not mince any words.

Speaking out loud and clear against the lies coming from the left is becoming the battle cry on the right.

But until we finally become sick and tired of being played like fiddles by the left, talking about it isn't going to cut it.

I do think we're going to hear a lot more from angry conservatives who no longer want to be "Mr. Nice Guy" over the next four years.

I'm crossing my fingers anyway.
