I had no idea how critical there projects were. Our troops, elderly and children will just need to cut back so we fund them. It is progressively logical and morale.

Obama has put a gag order on the survivors of Benghazi. What's that tell you about our piece of shit, lying, President?
.
"4 dollar a gallon gas is killing the poor" translates to "Obama is killing the poor"
Especially while his rich buddies like Corzine are getting richer on record breaking stock numbers on Wall Street. Obama is for the rich. He and his wife are hypocrites. Liars. Thieves. Killers maybe even.(Benghazi)

The number of allegedly frivolous grants still in play is not sitting well with Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma.

The GOP senator has been on a campaign to call out what he sees as pockets of wasteful government spending. Since the sequestration took effect March 1, he's sent 11 letters to various department heads highlighting places where they can fiscally trim down.

In a letter to NSF director Subra Suresh, Coburn suggested cutting the grants above along with nine others, including a $515,468 grant used, in part, to study how a shrimp running on a treadmill responds to alterations in oxygen and carbon dioxide levels.

A "treadmill" for a shrimp?

But a treadmill for a wounded veteran is "on order"?

Why it's become clear that Obama's White House is open to the rich and closed to the poor

President Obama's pledges to open up the White House are going in reverse, says Mark McKinnon

Does ignoring the subject of the article and my comments make your parents (Limbaughtomy and Rannity)proud?

They must take pride in your efforts to turn every article, no matter what the subject matter, to ALL Obama, ALL the time.

Just like them.

Poor teabagger.

After the first page?

Teabaggers change it to Obama after the first comment, regardless of the subject or topic.

That was just a bump in the road, the haircut upon personal bank accounts will be part of the next emergencyWhiteHouse fund demand.
