So, in the news today the following: "The United States said on Sunday it would give Egypt $250 million in budget aid after Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi promised to take the painful economic reforms needed to secure an IMF loan." Now note, we are GIVING them the 250 million, meanwhile Yellowstone National park can't open on time this year because of cuts. What can we do to stop this bullsh##? US citizens are losing their jobs but we can afford to give those damned #$@%^&&%$ 250 million bucks. How much longer are we going to let this go on?

I agree with you 100%. But I don't know the solution, except that we need some leadership in high places. Someone with common sense.

I did. I guess when the monthly free food and money for the non-workers that vote and the free medical care for the non-Americans that vote dries up maybe we will see change? Seriously though, anyone got any ideas on what we can do? Our current administration pledged a total of ONE BILLION dollars to Egypt yet the recent spending cuts don't affect the billions we are GIVING AWAY to third world toilets, they only affect us, here at home. I realize this 250 Million is just a drop in the bucket compared to the total being thrown at other countries but we are going to have to collectively figure something out.

america is now made up of non patriots that eat up the country and destroy it from within, which is what the present administration intends.

there are now more non patriot non americans that live in the usa and out vote us, so theres nothing you can do but pray that our destruction is quick, so we can move to the new world that jesus is building for us with our new bodies.

there will never be anything enter that beautiful place to bother us ever again, if we just hold to the right, and stay saved. but if you backslide and go back to your evil ways you will go to hell. http://www.topix.com/forum/city/london-ky/TDH... if you die in your sin, where i am you cannot come. john 8:24

Can't dispute that. Ron sure wouldn't be giving our money away. He is a better man than most folks realize. But the water has done gone under the bridge now.

Stray Dog dont give up just yet. Rand Paul is going to throw his hat in the ring in the next pres election unless I miss my mark.
I hope he wins if he runs. I want to see some of Ron Pauls Ideals put to the test and see how it turns out for Americas working people.
I already know how its going to turn out for the deadbeats sucking the taxpayers tit just because they dont want to work. They are going to have to work if they want to eat but they will probably have to pay back the money they stole from the taxpayers too. I hope they do have to pay it back with interest.
Thats when gunowners are going to have it all over non gunowners cause you know those drugged up idiots losing their government handouts are gonna revolt and they are going to be kicking down doors during violent home invasions to get money, food and drugs. Just wait and see. That shit is already going on daily in America. I believe its going to get a lot worse before it gets any better for all the working public in America. Hope not but I think its going to happen.

I'll agree with most of what you say. But I'm afraid there are just too many "takers" and too few "makers". The outlook is gloomy for our once proud and great country.

i you give a bully your lunch money to keep him from taking it,he will eat your lunch too.if you pay them not to whip your ass,they will take your money and get their buddies to sneak around and do it,just to get more.why give a bunch of countries a shit load of payoff money,when they don't even like or want us in their country and give the money to a group of terriorist to do the job so they can keep sucking money out of our country to support them.does the two seem similar?

Check out the Republican Administrations. This has been going on for decades by no matter who is in the White House. It's pretty much a have-to thing. The middle-east is a huge powder keg. It's much better to seek reforms over there by means such as this rather than let things someday explode. If World War Three ever happens it will be due to events in the middle-east. Both Parties know this as a reality and work to aviod it.

Jenny I know what your talking about and I can agree with part of it but try that logic on some hungry child that sees the only chance of a good meal for them being sent to a bunch of people that hate us.
How warped are those young minds going to be when they grow up knowing our government took money from them and gave it away while they starved and done without.
Charity should start at home. No matter the situation.

I've been fighting against taking food and programs from hungry children ..... all the '47 percent' of them. That's one of the major reasons I vote Democrat. Who do you think is going to suffer a lot from the Republicans in Washington forcing the sequester to occur? It's low-income families and children on the programs which will be cut. The 'new' Republican Party is notorious for wanting those programs cut, even funding to education. It's a battle-cry with them.

'A big victory' is what Steve Scalise, Republican Louisiana Representative and chairman of the Republican Study Committee, called the sequester. Is that what Republican leaders call a victory? Hungry children? After all, they're only the '47 percent'.

When the cuts begin to affect people we will see if this doesn't come back and bite the Republican Party in the butt in 2014 and 2016.

if the republican party gave in to the prsident,he would have raised taxes AGAIN and that would have been just as harmfull, and there would still be all those hungry childre.and wait till obama care really kicks in. so the 2% or above would still not have went toward the huge debt that he has caused.also he would have more money to vacation on and all those parties the TSA keeps saying there's nothing we can do about it will keep going on.if the gov. would cut some of the waste where it should be,maybe it would help.like solendra,and sidewallks to nowhere.and especially foriegn aid to the countries that hate us and probably laugh at us like china does.for real??

With things so bad here in America, why are we financially underwriting a religious-backed government with ties directly to the muslim brotherhood? We don't even allow public prayer in our own schools?

On top of the $215 million to Egypt, Kerry has requested $2.2 billion for Pakistan and $500 million already pledged to Syria. Speaking of Syria, Kerry said, "The funding will allow the opposition to reach out and help the local councils to be able to rebuild in liberated areas of Syria."

Obama wants the threat of school teachers and firemen and air traffic controllers losing their jobs because it creates an underlying fear of any cutbacks in government. He wants us to believe that all government cutbacks mean hardship for the people, this is a lie.

Now we are letting criminals out of prison and telling the American people to give up their guns. This has got to stop. Evil has taken over our government on all levels.

The president and Congress are looking at more credit downgrades soon if they don't start addressing the debt problem. They've already been warned by Moodys that if Congress continually delays spending cuts a downgrade could come by summer.

As I see it, let's set politics aside for once. I could care less about democrat or republican at this point. We have a bunch of self serving thugs in office and it is time to replace ALL OF THEM. Repeal their cushy retirement perks, limit their terms and put some folks in office that will serve US THE PEOPLE for a change. Look at the net worth of most of the present people in office and tell me how the hell you amass that kind of money legally? I pay into my 401K for years now only to watch it go up and down like a yo-yo and cannot help but feel the pittance I have means nothing, it is those mega-rich guys that manipulate the stock market, gas and oil, gold and silver, everything to their own purpose. I agree with some of you, hate to see it happen but one day we will not be able to go to work because we will be trying to protect our properties and families from the thugs that have no food or means because they chose the "easy way". No offense to those out there that are truly disabled and deserve a helping hand but for you out there that just suck tits of workers, come and get you some at my house, I'll be waiting for you and if I no longer have guns, I'll show you the business end of a Louisville slugger, unless they manage to take those to. We best be waking up folks, quit pointing fingers and arguing and start doing something. I sure miss my father but am glad he is not alive to see the mess our once great Nation has become, the Nation he fought for and suffered for but was too proud to ever even apply for his veteran's benefits, he worked until the day he died.

Here is an example of being a "good ol' boy", these are public records so no politics involved here, just though I'd start close to home. This is for Mitch:
"His top asset is his holdings in the Vanguard Tax Exempt Money Market, estimated at between $5,001,002 and $25,015,000. His next most valuable asset is his D.C. home (and carriage house rental) which is reported as worth between $1M and $5M.

The rest are investments in a wide variety of stock and bond mutual funds.

Let's look at his Vanguard investments.

Back in 2006, his major Vanguard investment was in its 500 Index Fund, estimated at between $650,003 and $1,350,000.

The next year, McConnell's wealth in that fund jumped to an estimated $1,100,002 to $5,250,000. Then in 2008 (not a good year in the market), McConnell's wealth in that fund dropped a bit (estimated from $500K to $1M), but all of a sudden he had $5,001,002 to $25,015,000 in the Vanguard Tax Exempt Money Market.
