Name any government, anywhere, that reduces spending during a deep recession?
These people in Washington are all out of their minds! This is government idea of the hour! Do all these idiots want to completely destroy our country’s economy?
Why is it that Arlington National Cemetery, the home of “Our Nation’s Heroes” as President Obama and every member of the U.S. Congress calls them, is in such disrepair that a private volunteer organization had to install a new sprinkler system and clean up and plant the decimated “hallowed grounds” at a cost of $200,000 and thousands of man hours of work. There is money to build roads and infrastructure in Afghanistan and to fight a losing war there while our infrastructure declines and yes, our National Cemeteries, are left to fall apart and wither. Talk about a presidential and congressional disgrace!
80% of the American public has some form of anger towards the federal government. Joseph Stiglitz, former Chief Economist of the World Bank has said that a Middle Eastern type anti-government revolution here is not out of the realm of possibility some time in the future. I agree! Stay Tuned
