Today's Washington Post report on the Obama Administration's proposed budget plan: (source:

Meanwhile, the Pentagon's $534 billion base budget -- $21 billion, or 4 percent, larger than last year's -- also includes key initiatives to reshape the U.S. military for fighting today's wars. Major shifts include increasing spending on intelligence and reconnaissance, helicopters and Special Operations Forces, while stopping production of unneeded weapons systems and terminating or restructuring other programs considered "troubled."

What happened to this promise?

This was mentioned July of last year.

Even more evidence to expose the false left-right paradigm!

This isn't conspiracy theory! This is only complete and utter lies filled with broken promises! A supposed 'liberal' devoted for 'change' who's increasing the budget for defense! Ha!

You go along 'liberals;' thinking you have voted-in someone that will truly make a difference in this country, ha. I can only laugh at your sheer ignorance.


The budget includes $2.3 billion more for personnel costs than the level enacted in 2009, an increase that would help pay for the Bush administration's decision to permanently increase the size of the Army by 65,000 soldiers and the Marine Corps by 27,000 Marines.

The Democrat-Republican feud must be perpetuated in order to give the dellusion of 'democracy in action.' We are a sorry lot indeed to even think that our country's two dominant political parties have contrasting ideologies. They are virtually the same.

And that, is no conspiracy.

Welcome to America. If you're a prominent corporation and about to declare bankruptcy, you'll receive free rescue funding courtesy of the U.S. taxpayers:

Yeah I agree nothing changes .... Same play different actors but the same director. Maybe the Republicrats will wake up but I doubt it. It would take something serious to wake up those brain dead zombies like 50% unemployment or hyper inflation or maybe seeing people thrown into fema camps. Hell I don't even think they would act then because look at history and it will show You that people are sheep. Sixty million people killed in Russia but no one lifted a finger to stop the murdering in the gulags. Thirteen million so called Jews were killed in the Nazi death camps and no one did a thing. So I think We are seriously screwed and We shouldn't expect any help from the American people because they made their choice.

Maybe he got the full briefing and now finally realizes he didn't know half of what is really going on.

Some would call that "Baptism by fire"!

Obama plans to spend more on everything. He is like a crackhead with a credit card at the crack shopping mall.

I am in no way insinuating that Barak Obama, my benevolent leader, is really a crackhead, or that he is a crackhead just because he is African-American. I have never been a member of the KKK or any other hate group. I dont even really have a problem with crackheads. If it wasnt for them where would you be able to buy a slightly used flatscreen tv for $10 at 2am.

Yes, the new boss looks just like the old boss...

The obama deception video from Alex Jones explains it well. Obama is just a puppet president, and TPTB put him there.
I just know that the real "rulers" are in the shadow, because if the truth was exposed for all to see and understand (with undeniable proof), a real revolution would start, and nobody could stop it...

Apparently the billions loaned to our financial institutions wasn't enough. Banks go through money like a frat boy with a pack of Keystone Light. Hey, I'm an American who is insolvent with college debt! Bail my ass out Fed!

Read the stress test results:

Economic nomenclature is confusing; maybe that is the sole reason it was intended for....

I never trusted bankers and i never will. Money is is tool used for power.
The more you control money, the more you control the mass. This system has got to go! We need something else, where the illusion of power is not present. We need to grow up and let go of our past mistakes, and start anew.

Obama this, Obama that, Obama here, Obama there, He is nothing but another puppet in a play as were all presidents in the past 50 years.
he has no choice as to how he runs his administration because its not his to run. He himself has already said that he is part of a government that is under control of another government, I take that to mean shadow government, nwo, rockefeller, those are the real presidents. this is just my oppinion, I respect others oppinions, so please respect mine.

I seen this coming a mile back. All politicians do it, say one thing and do the other.

Sorry to burst the bubble but he already has spend this nation since taking hold of power up to 7 trillion dollars.

Still by the summer in June he will add another 1 trillion and all this is going to be on bailouts alone.

All that money at the expenses of the taxable income of the nations future, still we have lost in the last two years 5.3 million jobs (no taxable income here), the work force hours has been steadily declining to a littler more than 33 hours a week ( meaning less taxable income from those working) and the nation counting the illegal work force (that is not in the nations unemployment data) will add another 2 more millions.

But hey life is peachy, and ever thing right now is like the new wording used by the damage control team coming from the morons (I mean the geniuses in Washington) "better than expected" as today the word "worst than expected" has been erased from the Markets and government vocabulary.

If anyone looked, watched and listened during the campaign, it was obvious that there was no way that he could deliver on his promises......They were simply a tried and true method of obtaining power so that social engineering could begin and our Republic could be torn down and remade.

This is only the beginning, folks, watch during every crisis as if you were watching a magic trick. As you focus on the magic trick (crisis), another "Change" will be slipped past us.

The ONLY hope for this republic in the near term is the 2010 elections......Our republic was founded on check and balances, we need them back so the check and balance on Mr. Change is the Congress.
