LOL, youíre just a bitter loser who hates the fact that I am in pure euphoria because we wonÖ again. Say what you want about me, I stand by everything I post, and that includes supporting the government taking down domestic enemies who hope for failure and would use force to hurt real Americans. I donít care that it bothers you; the truth hurts, especially when you are on the side of those who are treasonous and against this country.
You clearly exhibit signs of being on LSD.

and what is the majority of government spending?
defense.
we spend twice as much as ANY other country on the planet on defense.
why?

(that unemployment extension crap was a huge mistake, Obama should have allowed those tax cuts to expire back in 2010 instead on negotiating for that extension)
Good grief, you're clueless. Do some research before you spout off and make a bigger fool of yourself.

Defense spending is LESS THAN 25% of the federal budget. Even during the Iraq War, it didn't get much higher than that.

What's the biggest part of the gubbermint expense? ENTITLEMENTS. Over two-thirds of the annual expenditure goes to things like Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Welfare, on and on and on. Your Boy Wonder has over 40,000,000 people on food stamps. It adds up.

And which is an assigned responsibility in the Constitution, Welfare or national defense? I don't expect you to know the answer, you obviously don't read much. Or at all.

BTW: what the hell are you talking about "those tax cuts" (referring to unemployment?)expiring? Princess Pelosi and Dickweed Reid upped UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS (the checks) to 99 weeks, now suddenly it's Draconian to take them back to 26 weeks, where they were before. What planet are you on?

Youíre nothing more than a pathetic loser who canít deal with my perspicacious observations and opinions, so you so desperately want them to go away. If you donít like what I say, or that Topix allows me to say it, then either ignore my post or go somewhere else and express your loser views where you can read loser thoughts by people who are losers just like you, LOL!
But keep crying to Topix, maybe it will be you who gets banned.
YOU are the one suggesting murder, not me. Murder is a crime, even if you are a rabid Obama fan. Or do you think Lord Obama will pardon you after you finally go completely nuts and act out the fantasies you've been so foolish as to post on Topix?

As for you being banned, I'll let the moderators decide: shall they keep MCP, who openly calls for murder? That's not my decision.

THE USA spends more than twice what ANY other country spends on defense.(FACT)
.
Social Security and Medicare are NOT entitlements, those people paid into the system their entire lives, and now the federal government is required to pay them back.(eliminating the contribution cap would solve that problem.
.
More than 75% of people that get food stamps are full-time workers, disabled, elderly, and children.(FACT)
Almost 80% of Walmart employees receive food stamps, and qualify for medicaid insurance (FACT)
.
In 2010 Boehner and Obama made a deal to extend the "Bush Tax Cuts" in exchange for extending unemployment benefits.(FACT)
.
.
you should really turn off the TV and read a little, you could become enlightened and everything.
good luck!!
