to show more sympathy
for these people.
They travel miles in the
They risk their lives crossing a
They don't get paid enough
They do jobs that others won't do
or are afraid to do.
They live in crowded
among a people who
speak a different
They rarely see their families,
and they face adversity all day ~
talking about illegal Mexicans
about our troops!
Doesn't it seem strange that so
many are willing to lavish all kinds
of social benefits on illegals,
but don't support our troops?
Wouldn't it be great if we took
the $360,000,000,000 (that's billion)
we spend on illegals every
year, and spend it on our troops!!!

Let's see .... I work, pay my bills, follow the law, I don't suck off the system, I love my kids, I spay and neuter my pets, I don't do drugs, I don't drink and drive, I'm white.
Yep .... I'm a minority

Wouldn't it be great if the sequester didn't actually happen and we didn't have to slice and dice our military budgets?
CBO projected in February 2013 that under the sequester and Budget Control Act caps:
Defense spending outlays (including "overseas contingency operations" for Iraq and Afghanistan) will be reduced from $670.3 billion in 2012 to approximately $627.6 billion in 2013, a decrease of $42.7 billion or 6.4%. Defense spending will fall again to $593.4 billion in 2014, a decrease of $34.2 billion or 5.5%.
Defense spending will rise gradually from $593 billion in 2014 to $714 billion by 2023, an annual growth rate of 2.1% during the 2014 to 2023 period and 0.6% for the 2012-2023 period. The 2.1% growth rate approximates CBO's projected rate of inflation and is well below the annual spending growth rate of 7.1% from 2000-2012.
Defense spending will fall steadily from 4.3% GDP in 2012 to 2.8% GDP by 2023. Defense spending averaged 4.0% GDP from 1990 to 2012, ranging from 3.0% GDP to 5.2% GDP.
