I am not gullible enough to believe I have seen all possible insults to the American people from Obut-i-know-i’m-right–but, seriously? The decision was made to cut defense spending; it seems the dollars just aren’t in the budget to maintain the safety and security of our nation, while those who live to see Americans die are beefing up and raising funds by the billions.
500,000 troops will no longer protect our freedoms, at home or abroad. Arguments can be made for either side of the issue, but the insult to you and me is that somehow enough money has been scrounged up to increase entitlement spending, especially “healthcare”. Let’s face it, tough decisions have to be made to put the budget back on track, cuts are necessary. So let’s look at this chart.
Notice how the red and green keep going up … a lot; and the others gradually fall. Protection and Defense spending drop almost as much as Healthcare and Pensions rise. I’ve got an idea how to cut Pensions: pay attention, Congress. I’m quite sure you can do without those $100,000 plus pensions. I also think I should pay for your healthcare when you pay for mine. When the bad guys come and do us harm, the government will take care of illegal immigrant medical bills and retired congressmen will still get paid. Relieved?
Illegal aliens 1st, retired still-not-working-for-me politicians 2nd, your safety 3rd.
Flashback to the Chevy Volt, manufactured by GM (Government Motors), and in effect already owned by every taxpayer. Did you get yours? Obut-change-is-good bailed the company out with our money, hopped in one of these cars touting it as the green saviour of the U.S. auto industry, and unleashed another Obamination. The thing catches fire, even weeks after an accident. Now we have to bring them all back, spend our money to fix them, and then convince ourselves to buy one. Can’t afford it? Well we have a solution for that, too. We subsidize your purchase with an $8,000 tax credit! Now all you need is the other $35,000. No problem.
Need-to-spend-a-trillion-dollars 1st, hurry up and look good 2nd, your safety 3rd.
Then there’s Benghazi. The diplomatic service requests extra protection for the consulate. The State Department decided it wasn’t really necessary, after all Obut-I-killed-bin-laden said al Qeada is on the run and nearly non-existent. When stuff hit the fan EVERYONE denied knowing anything about the request, blame was placed for two weeks on a fortunately timed release of a very bad movie no one watched while violence erupted all around the Middle East.
Of course, Obut-i-am-not-a-muslim apologized, to them. We wouldn’t want to offend them over a few dead American bodies dragged through the street. We have to remember the next time we go to protest something to take our RPG’s and assault rifles; of course this would require no planning ahead of time. Now that the truth is out O’Biden still points his finger at someone else, the intelligence services, and honestly believes that Washington had no idea what was happening. There’s a shock.
Avoid offending Muslims 1st, blame others 2nd, Americans safety 3rd.
