Why bother with creating a budget if you're not willing to live by it? And, it's not as if the budget is even balanced! We have a record national debt and it keeps growing.

Obama accepted the budget and now wants billions more for this and billions more for that. Meanwhile, his administration gave away over ONE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS to undeserving folk. That's over $300 for each American man, woman and child. If you have a spouse and one child, that is about a thousand dollars of your tax money frittered away. And now the Democrats want you and your children to cough up another $30 each. It's highway robbery.

I have found two things the Dems are good at

1. Spending more money than we have

2. Blaming everyone/anything for their big mistakes instead of taking responsibility for their screw-ups.

So now there is a price limit Dems are attaching to finding the truth? So if we where to investigate Bush for war crimes, once we got to a bill over $3 mill we would just stop and throw away all progress? Of course not, but why let common sense and patriotic duty get in the way of a partisan and bigoted trash right?

And the Dems claim Republicans are the ones who are obstructing progress LOL. Hypocrite.

Obama is still dancing on the children's graves on gun control.

Benghazi has a lot of unanswered questions - just like IRS. One day the Dems will learn how to tell the truth and stop playing the "NOT MY FAULT" game.

No we're asking Hillary and Obama to be put under oath and tell us the truth. Obama spends more than the three million on a golf outing. The fact we have to spend it at all is his fault and that of Hillary for lying and not telling the truth in the first place..........then of course we have the IRS hidden emails that were just discovered.......seems lots more than a smidgen wouldn't you say.

Notice how the budget cuts Obama makes is to our Military. This tells you Obama's priorities are NOT on America. A country is only as strong as their Military Force - and the foreign countries are laughing at Obama's weakness.

Where in the hell did you get another WAR from my post about Military cuts? You are out of control on your asinine answers.

Tell us O'Great One what protects a country from being invaded? Tell us how we can remain FREE with NO MILITARY FORCES?

Now try to pay attention...

Military spending goes UP when a war starts.

Why?

If you can figure out why military spending goes UP during a war (and even if you can't figure that out)...

Think, SenileCitizen... think...

What happens to military spending when the war is over?

You have no idea what you are talking about. Your comments are asinine and off topic. You want to discuss war and not what I posted.

ORIGINAL POST
"Notice how the budget cuts Obama makes is to our Military. This tells you Obama's priorities are NOT on America. A country is only as strong as their Military Force - and the foreign countries are laughing at Obama's weakness."

Again- we were NOT talking about WAR - we were talking about cutting military. Military spending does NOT GO UP after the troops come home. It stays the same, what makes you think it will go up? Now if you get your one word that got stuck in your brain (WAR) that had nothing to do with my post you might understand the post that I made was about Obama cutting MILITARY.
