You're a complete dumbass if you think there wont be corruptuon in that fabulous idea.... Everyone knows theres corruption to beat all hell involved with Ceasars green energy bullshit.
Even then...... Let's just hypothetical out your idea.... Do you know how much money the post offuce loses a day???? 43 million bucks..... How many billions does Amtrak now lose on a yearly basis?
Incredibly
Fu*king
Bad
Idea
Duke.
But at least you're still trying.....
There's corruption now in the form of outlandishly exorbitant profits ostensibly justified by the costs of research and exploration.

There's absolutely no reason the models used successfully by organizations such as NASA, the Army Corps of Engineers, or similar governmental operations/projects elsewhere in the world cannot be duplicated.

Its not as if Nationalizing energy development and production doesn't occur anywhere else in the world.

There's a movie coming out that'll be right up your ally Duke.... This weekend I'm going to see Atlas Shrugged. You'll be cheering for the bad guys.
I always cheer for the good guys, and against the evil, righteous, profiteers, who are always happy to have the masses one paycheck and one statute away from debtor's prisons (privately operated and paid for by the prisoners, of course).

Big Bird costumes probably gonna be a hot selling item around the end of the month.

The post office loses money because its services are worth more to society than it charges.

Amtrak loses money because most Americans don't like or use mass transportation by rail.

<quoted text>I agree no doubt, the Federal Government was involved to an extent but Wall Street even went farther after the Repeal of portion of the Glass Steagall Act and this is where Socialism took the wrong turn by Repealing part of Glass Steagall act and with that allowed the use of Derivatives which was a win win for Wall Street & the Banks if those mortage back securities they repackaged failed or any other investments failed and were backed by derivatives and anybody that bought into those derivatives was going to loose which was Wall Street & the Banks intent, but it was the US tax payers who lost with TARP thanks to Clinton & the Republican controlled Congress in 1999 for repeal of Glass Steagall.

Bottom line: you can't sell bad mortgage securities unless you have the bad mortgages to begin with. If we never had bad mortgages, Wall Street couldn't work their magic.

Do the math.
Six hours. That's how long it takes the DOD to spend $450,000,000.
That's right.$765,894.43 per hour.

Are you saying that the DOD is a waste?

His point is that he would rather waste our tax money of big bird, NPR and The Arts more than he would our military. He doesn't consider the US government funding entertainment as a waste.

since defense is 1/3rd of the budget, there is 2/3rds more waste elsewhere.

2/3rds is 66% in case you are challenged with fractions.

so there is 66% more waste in entitlement spending than defense spending.

Don't you think it's a bit presumptuous of you to speak for others?
That's not my point at all, but of course you know that don't you?
I'm sure you read some of the commentary I re-posted from the recent article written by Charles Blow in the NYT on that issue yesterday.

My point is that the money provided to the CPB is money well spent, and that it provides one of the best ROIs of any item in the federal budget in term of its actual value to society.

My point is that eliminating federal funding to the CPB would do absolutely nothing to trim the deficit under Mittens' conniving scheme...those funds would simply be diverted to pay for tax cuts to the wealthiest of Americans.

My point is that if you're looking to trim the deficit, you look first at the economies of scale...where the largest chunks of money are filtered into private hands.

The old saying..."why do you rob banks?...cause that's where the money is" applies.

DOD contracts ARE entitlement spending, to a VERY large degree.

The federal budget is hardly made up solely of defense, and "entitlement", no matter how one defines that term.

But of course, the GOP VP candidate doesn't "do math" does he?
