It's not a matter of being on a different level, it's a matter of the path of least resistance to doing anything at all. Cutting defense spending is a political quagmire, while targeting entitlement fraud would have bipartisan support. A good effort at that would then have the defense hawks in a position where their pet programs would have to be justified. The alternative is stagnation and nothing gets done - keep in mind I'm talking about fraud and waste, not tearing down safety nets. It's what the guy you elected and re-elected to the WH said he wanted.<quoted text>
you said " unless and until attention is paid to domestic programs."
that tells me that first the scythe goes through entitlement programs before any such talk of Defense waste.
not all areas but domestic first then others.
perhaps i took the wrong meaning from that but it does not sound like all programs.
guess defense department corporate welfare is held on a different level.

I knew you wouldn't try to answer my question.

Wyoming may be happy to have gravel roads, keeps the rif raf with their Mercedes and Beamers out!
#49 Jun 18, 2013
actually the answer is right there but you missed it.
not a real surprise.
Congress can pass legislation that is good for the general welfare of the United States.
a measure of a country is the treatment and welfare of it's citizens.
So Congress can decide that for example a retirement program is good for the general welfare of the US.
that program can be an entitlement.
it can be a tax break or corporate welfare.
or healthcare or roads.

anytime Wyoming wants to reject those funds they can.
no one says they have to take that money.
they can go all "bootstrappy".

You've missed my point completely. But then you would. You're a Communist.
#52 Jun 19, 2013
coming from you it amounts to a compliment.
tis just a shame that you use terms that you do not understand.
but that would be your problem so no one cares.
#54 Jun 19, 2013
Your Welcome. Oh, and BTW, about me using terms that I do not understand? I believe you think that because of your limited understanding of the American vernacular. You being an illegal immigrant, and all. And, really, don't you think it somewhat elitist of you to establish your opinion of what is or isn't my problem, or to make claim that "no one" cares. "NO ONE"? Really?

well based on your posts it is clear you do not understand quite a lot of things.
your observations and inferences are about as correct as "Baghdad Bob"
like him you manage to keep making allegations even when they are exposed to be false.
elitist? not at all,your narcissism however is plain to see.

You'll never beat me, Blah Blah. You have nothing of any truth and/or relevance to state. You twist, you spin, you dance in the wind. No substance. No truth. Just words meant to confuse.
