Struggling with debt, Congress talks defense cuts

Jul 29, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Peninsula Clarion

Once unthinkable in a time of two wars, Democrats and Republicans alike are insisting that the billions spent on the military can be significantly cut back over the next decade as the nation struggles to reduce its spiraling debt.

I'm starting to have a "Twilight Zone" moment...lol

(Rod Serling) Consider, if you will, that somehow the Government had amassed a 14 trillion dollar surplus, by being so tight with our tax dollars that it rarely spent any of the tax dollars that we paid in.

Imagine a group of liberals, petitioning our Government, to start spending our tax dollars on the people for a change. Better roads. Jobs. Benefits. The Arts and Science.

Further Imagine a rather loud group of Conservatives, screaming "NO! Let the Government KEEP the tax money and NOT spending" The President says he will veto any spending bills. The Senate refuses to vote on any spending bill.

Does that not all sound rather ridiculous?

But back to reality, we are certainly 14 trillion in DEBT, and the spending has to stop. So why all the fuss about the people who are demanding that our Government STOP spending?

It's all rather interesting, from an academic point of view.

Don't cut the military budget. War is good business. The U.S. Treasury is bottomless.

Now we are getting somewhere.... Defense cuts would be a great thing. How about ending war on drugs also and ending the DEA. Also cut out the FCCand FAA and NEA. We could svae over a trillion with just those cuts. And we wouldnt have to cut one penny from poor sick or old people.

Lets call our Defense Department what it Truly is -The Department of War. Even if The earliest days of our Republic it was called "The Department of War". But in the Modern age of Linguistics and Propaganda, the nomenclature making it defensive rather then its aggressive mission since the Second world War, gives it more palitable sound. Time to stop being The Worlds most aggressive and destructive Military The World has ever Seen. Defund The Pentagon so it has to be truly more defensive and less destructive in its Mission! But then they are only one part of The Military-Industrial Complex. War Industries and their Silent Partners - The Congress, are The true Engines that fund and drive The Agenda The Pentagon adheres to. Stop or at least Slow The Madness down!

Any cuts that DO NOT FIRST start with foreign funding and nation building is ALL BULL$HIT ....

lots of talk about...

defaulting on obligations
stopping checks to SS & military
cutting medicare
cutting social security
cutting education
cutting government jobs

cutting all sorts of government programs that have benefited Americans...

but....NO talks....not one word about cutting foreign funding, foreign nation building, foreign welfare, foreign charity......
NO cuts to free money given to 150 foreign countries......

o-bribe-a says it's not fair for the "rich" to not pay higher taxes......

What's NOT FAIR is to ask or force by law any class of American taxpayers to pay more taxes while the government continues to GIVE AWAY money to foreign countries....

American taxpayers money should be used FIRST for Americans and America.....

if there is any left over.....then reduce taxes.....and consider some charity causes......

American Taxpayers are being scammed and robbed by thier government.....

American Taxpayers are allowing a small percentage of people (Senators, Representatives, president) to abuse them and treat them worse than they would allow a neighbor, friend or family member to treat them and their family.......

Americans have every human and moral right to resist and rebel against this government.....

It is amazing how long Americans will sit back in fear of their government and allow this BULL$HIT to continue.....

Barack Obama's Total Dedication To Marxism - Occidental's Dr. John Drew
1 Barack Obamas Occidental Friend Dr John Drew - Obamas Total Dedication to Communism
embed thisWould you like to try our new video/audio player ?(beta!) Listen to this interview with Dr. John Drew, a conservative professor of political science who was a Communist in his youth and founder of the Marxist Student Association at Occidental College:

Interview by Jeff Kuhner - Dr. Drew describes Obama's total dedication to Communist revolution in America, beginning with his youthful indoctrination in Hawaii by the well-known member of the Communist Party of America (CPUSA) Frank Marshall Davis, and continuing through his college years, as personally witnessed by Dr. Drew based on his close personal contact with Obama at Occidental College.

Dr Drew has no doubt that Obama has always been a Communist and remains a fervent Communist today. According to Dr. Drew, Obama is totally committed to carrying out a revolution in America which will destroy the American system of rights and freedoms enshrined in the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence in order to bring about a "redistribution of wealth" and the forcible imposition of "social justice" as envisioned by Marx, Lenin, Trotsky, and Mao Tse-tung.

Dr. Drew was studiously ignored during the bizarre infatuation of the media with Obama during his campaign - to the detriment of all. Now that Obama had had two years to impose his will on the U.S., we can see how spot on Dr. Drew was.

Barack Obama's mother, father, stepfather, and childhood mentor Frank Marshall Davis were all communists. Even Obama admits in his quasi-autobiography, "Dreams of My Father", that he chose to hang out with Marxist professors at Occidental College. One of these was Dr. Drew in this very interview.

How dare they, Bring our troops home and replace them with our leadership. How dare they even to consider that. No one brings up Libya and the U.S. Mexican border.
