<Quote DBWriter> "Clinton had to be dragged kicking and screaming to all the Republican legislation that made the government fiscally sound."
The logical inference and constitutional reality of your quote is that congress determines what money is spent on, not the president.
A more logical question is, Where's Obama going to get the money that congress spent?
Let's try this again. This time, try to not be distracted and remain on topic.

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

You dance around this question like a club-footed penguin. How about telling us what the plan is. You idiots do have a plan, don't you?

No Hypocrisy at all.

We invaded Afghanistan to get Bin Laden. I have no problem with that action. My problem as to do with how that war was waged.

The hypocrisy is yours as you rant about Libya & Mali.

If you actually had any knowledge about what comes out of your ignorant mouth, you'd know that wealth distribution is directly related to the education level of a population.
Given that it is an uncontestable fact that we have the most expensive education system in the world, and it generates the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world, and has been in decline for more than 40 years without a single year of imporvement,...
only an idiot wouldn't know that the wealth will naturally begin to migrate to an increasingly smaller percentage of the population... idiot.

If you want to distribute the wealth more evenly, fix the goddam education system you Democrats destroyed with your so-called "progressive" ideas.

Or, if you're too goddam lazy to do that, you'll have to steal it from those who actually make the sacrifices to earn it, and spread it aound to those who do nothing to help themselves.
... incidentally, that's called Marxism.

Would you be talking about that same Justice Department that is running guns for the Mexican drug cartels?

So, what you're saying is, anyone in government can use the authority of the government to just start killing Americans at their whim, right?

It makes sense that these fascist dictator wannabes would have a justice department that would promote that absolute nonsense.

How about you think for yourself. Tell us why the government has the authority to just start slaughtering Americans at their whim.

... well?????

here we have another psycho allowed to roam the streets:

STAMFORD -- A Transportation Security Administration screener at John F. Kennedy International Airport was arraigned at state Superior Court in Stamford Monday for allegedly striking his 75-year-old mother a day after he was charged with harassing and threatening his psychiatrist.

Christopher Wilkie, 43, of 210 Shore Road, Long Beach, N.Y., was charged with third-degree assault on a person over 60, second-degree harassment, second-degree threatening and two counts of breach of peace.

Wilkie was arrested just down the street from his mother's home on MacGregor Drive after a witness saw him assaulting his mother in a car on Saturday at about 2 p.m., his court files show.

He was also arrested Friday after police obtained a warrant for his arrest following a troubling incident in his psychiatrist's Summer Street parking garage.

According to his arrest warrant affidavit, Wilkie was waiting when his psychiatrist pulled into his office at about 6:30 a.m. on Dec. 26. An agitated Wilkie, who had a 7 a.m. appointment with the psychiatrist, nearly pulled him out of his car window by his shirt, saying, "You are out to get me. I will get you and your daughter. In another situation I would have killed you. My people are coming to give you your instructions tomorrow," the warrant states.

Wilkie drove off and his psychiatrist called police to report the incident.

Judge Kenneth Povodator reduced Wilkie's bond to $10,000 on the assault charge and forbid him from going to his mother's house. Bello said Wilkie will go to another psychiatrist for care.

In videos, Wilkie can be seen using shirts to cover three surveillance cameras in the parking garage before the attack, the warrant said. They also show Wilkie taping a note to his psychiatrist's door, saying "I am on to you, you (expletive deleted) punk."

Later that day, Wilkie made seven phone calls to the psychiatrist's office, making harassing and threatening statements to the staff, the warrant said.

The psychiatrist said he has been seeing Wilkie for 10 years without problem. But that morning he appeared to be "whacked out on something," the psychiatrist surmised.

With his mother sitting in court Monday, Wilkie's attorney, Robert Bello, told Judge Kenneth Povodator his client was off his medications.
Bello said he had Wilkie's medications and his mother would be able to help get them to Wilkie if he could be released on bond. Bello said Wilkie had a clean criminal record and was not a flight risk, because he used to live with his mother in Stamford.

Supervisory Assistant State's Attorney Steven Weiss said Wilkie has been a TSA screener for nine years and he was concerned because Wilkie had reportedly been planning on getting a gun.

Wilkie denied the claim before Povodator quieted him.

when there is a headline of a shooting, whose fault will it be--the libs who close institutions where this guy should be? and/or the judge who let him out on $10K bond?

... yeah, and the 49ers could have won the Super Bowl if the lights didn't go out.

But, you got one thing right. It was Panetta that got bin Laden. Obama didn't even have a goddam clue the operation was happening until it was leaked to Vallerie Jarrett the mission was about 40 minutes from landing in bin Laden's compound.... not quite enough time for Vallerie Jarrett to warn bin Laden so he could get out of there before the SEALs arrived with greetings from the United States.

You asked a zillion times where Obama gets his money to run the government.

He gets it from the treasury department.

I answered it. Did I prevent the collapse?

Bottom line folks if Flack hadn't picked the 49ers they may well have won the game.

Like all of his predictions as soon as he picked the 49ers I knew the die was cast, so to speak.

Confidential paper says the government can order the killing of citizens without intelligence indicating they are plotting to attack the U.S.
not true, this has been in the NY Daily News. the difference is that if GW Bush had been judge and jury in ordering the killing of American citizens by drone, the noise from the left would be deafening and unrelenting.

'In the latest issue of Chatham House's journal International Affairs, Boyle adds: "Over time, an excessive reliance on drones will deepen the reservoirs of anti-U.S. sentiment, embolden America's enemies and provide other governments with a compelling public rationale to resist a U.S.-led international order which is underwritten by sudden, blinding strikes from the sky."

The Obama administration has not responded to a Freedom of Information request filed some two years ago by the American Civil Liberties Union demanding details of the drone program. A similar request from the New York Times was also greeted with silence.

Last week, the United Nations announced it had launched an investigation into drone warfare to look into charges of unlawful killings and to help put into place "appropriate legal and operational structures ... to regulate its use in a manner that complies with the requirements of international law," in the words of Ben Emmerson, special investigator for the U.N. Human Rights Council.

Obama has said that the decision to target someone for assassination involves "an extensive process, with a lot of checks." But judging from what has been leaked about the secret process, it takes place entirely within the executive branch which functions as judge, jury and executioner. New rules have been under review for several months

Afghanistan attacked us on 9/11(2001)

Iraq was just the most convenient place to fight the Arab jihad in their own backyard, plus it split the Islamist Terrorist Empire that stretched unbroken from Morocco to Tibet in half, and it got rid of Saddam Hussein.
You're not really so goddam stupid you'd leave Saddam Hussein in your rear with a rebuilt war machine, are you?
