BS we don't have the money.
We seem to be able to find the money to funnel overseas, both for ridiculous "wars" and for ridiculous "aid" to other countries, including Israel
ALONE to the tune of about what was it $7 million dollars a day alone? So double BS that we don't have the money.
It's at times like this that a simple repiroritization can go a long way. Unfortunately the brainiacs in DC love to feed YOU excuses and make
everything seem so much more complex than it is.
And they do it on purpose to put you to sleep with the legalese and mumbo jumbo hoping you'll go away and you do.
Or how's this? Pull back, even temporarily, some of the multi-billion dollar contracts our own DoD has with China and India and retool our plants
here and put some Americans who already HAVE the skills back to work for their war effort.
And speaking of that...how about we scale back on this war of choice? We could leave both Afghanistan and Iraq for a few years and return to find them
pretty much where we left them. Technically.
It's time to get creative and put America first again or for a change. When you run a business in a smart and ethical fashion, you typically leave
your solid core of employees in tact and hire contractors and vendors for peaks then let them go during valleys, leaaving your core strong and
healthy. The same logic should have applied to this offshoring of jobs and employment of Americans. And now that we're feeling the effects, instead
of playing footsie and pandering to every communist capitalist who is in fact now LAUGHING at us, pull back some jobs or at the very least some
If Obama can sign an executive order for amnesty for 11 million illegals he sure as sugar can sign one to free some money up for Americans who are out
So I don't buy that we have no money. Nope.
What I buy is that we have a worthless Congress and a wimp of a president who care nothing about the plight of THIS country and its people.
