Do you think the government wastes taxpayer money? And, if so, what do you see as the solution?

I'm begging for an answer. I'll give you the questions again, just for your convenience:
Where exactly was Obama when the real-time video of the battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment was being watched in the White House?
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
Your dance routine is getting repetitive and boring. How about providing an answer to these two questions nobody on Earth has been able to answer.
Why you running away from your stupidity concrening our aid to Russia during WWII??

C'mon, I enjoy entering a battle of wits with an unarmed man.

ROFLMAO at your ignorance, Dweeb!!

Wrong.
Obama's budgets were put on the floor for a vote without amendments. You'd know that if you kept up with events and knew the first excuses by the Democrats about why Obama got a sum total of ZERO votes for the 2 budgets he got around to submitting of the 4 budgets we hired him to submit.
Thanks for playing, dupe. Next?

You probably aren't aware of how many legal gun owners are democrats.

Bottom line, dufus....
Less than 10 percent of what Russia used to defeat Germany came from the United States. Those munitions didn't start arriving until after Germany invaded Russia.
Therefore, your ignorant statement that the US armed Stalin so he could begin his purges in 1935 was (typically from you) ludicrous.
If you look closer at history, you'll see that the annual production of arms of Russia was almost that of Germany the year before Germany invaded Russia. It was projected that the very next year arms production in Russia would exceed arms production in Germany. This fact was a significant factor in Hitler deciding to invade Russia while he had two other active fronts, Africa and Western Europe.
... get an education, dufus.
Typical Dweeb. When you lose, you lie even more.

Show me where I or anyone mentioned that we began to arm Russia in 1935??

You are completely insane, so you make up lies to provide cover for your ignorance and abject stupidity.

Answer the question:

Why are you so ignorant??

Obama won.
Dems picked up 2 Senate Seats.
Dems picked up 8 House seats.
It's not Obama out to destroy your sick party. You're doing it all on your own with your 'I hate my fellow Americans' program that all 8% of you Teabaggers are on board with.
Cant's wait til the midterms.
Then Dems will control the entire Government!!
And the united states will cease to exist .

You do see my own material here. I just borrowed that blurb from the TEA Party because I laughed out loud when I first read it.

Now, how about you show us your new dance routine and answer the following questions nobody on Earth has answered to this day:

Where exactly was Obama when the White House watched the real-time video of the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi?

And;

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

You have no idea what "Europe" is finding out, carol, "Europe" is not a homogeneous place. An analogous question might be... what are the "United" States finding out right now? In texas, for instance, housing prices are stable, even growing. But to enjoy that stability you'd have to live in texas. So, would you rather suffer along in Paris or enjoy the stability of life in Laredo?

Many Democrats were also isolationists.

The American left was particularly opposed to entering the war because of the Hitler-Stain pact.

Joseph Kennedy was pro-Nazi because of his hatred of Great Britain over Ireland.

One video of a 4D sonogram of a baby inside the womb and another video of that same baby being sucked out of the mother's womb by an industrial vacuum is all it would take for many young people to change their minds very quickly.

Have you ever seen an aborted "fetus"? I have. It changed my mind about abortion in a heartbeat.

Ignorance breeds more ignorance. The ugliness of reality is the only thing to fight against it.

""In total, the US deliveries through Lend-Lease amounted to $11 billion in materials: over 400,000 jeeps and trucks; 12,000 armored vehicles (including 7,000 tanks); 11,400 aircraft and 1,75 million tons of food.""

Prove your contention that 400,000 jeeps and trucks, 11,400 aircraft, 7,000 tanks, another 5,000 armored vehicles amounted to 10% or less of Russia's military material.

Or did you just pull that number out of your butt, as you so typically do??

Provide valid documentation to support your views.

just as I did.

Or admit that once again you've been caught in a lie, and are lying more to cover your original lie!!

I've got you on the hook, Dweeb, and it won't end pretty.

You can leave and go back to your Birfer thread now..........

Taxation could never provide enough money to fund Obama's excessive wasteful spending.

Actually, it might, if everyone's taxes were at least doubled.

But that would crash the economy.

You shouldn't use Texas as an example of prosperity. It's primarily a republican state.

Stick with California. It aligns more with your ideology.

A high level of abortions is essential to control the growth of the welfare population.

Sad, but true.

Just as is your belief that people are animals who are unable to control their sexual desires or take appropriate measures to prevent pregnancy.

So, let's take a look at it as we're waiting for carol to secure a new client.

Ireland is in the midst of a total meltdown with housing losing 2/3 of its value almost overnight. This happened because back in the seventies the Irish government listened to a group of businessmen about how best to transition to a modern economy from an essentially feudal one. Here's what they came up with: join the European Union, a relatively exclusive club, and then offer foreign firms tax-free guarantees, free labor force training, free construction of factories and facilities and generous grants to encourage them to relocate to Ireland thereby providing jobs and training for what was quite simply a workforce of agrarian peasants. They had nothing so what'd they have to lose? Worked like a charm. Within 10 years hundreds of American, German, and Japanese firms had relocated and the Irish were magically transported into the twentieth century from the eighteenth century. The only problem was the 99 year tax free thingy. These firms did bring prosperity and better educational standards to Ireland but with no real contribution to the health of the government except what was gained by taxing the newly prosperous peasants. So much for Ireland. Lower taxes did indeed stimulate growth and attract entrepreneurs who promptly robbed the place blind and bankrupted - most recently - the entire nation. Are you following along so far?

T-34 tank. One of the toughest little tanks ever built. Still in use today. First tank with sloped armor.

If Obama had raised the debt like Reagan it would now be $46.5 Trillion.
There are two major expenditures of government. Defense and Medicare/SS. Defense --- bring it all home cut the military budget in half. Even at half we would be outspending all other nations. If any nation wants the US military as defense in their country, fine, pay for it to be there. Medicare should have been made into a universal health care for all Americans. Payment based on income. SS needs means testing.
