Whoa! STIMULUS? So So Wrong! You mean spending on military adventures again? How do you think these get paid for???????????? How do you
think Iraq and Afghanistan were paid for and are being paid for? BORROWING MONEY!!!!!!!!!! How do you think we got into this mess? Besides the
Wall Street and Banking looting going on, it was getting into TWO wars at once, cutting taxes at the same time, and borrowing to pay for everything!
We don't have the money! What we have is "Credit". What we have is IOUs. What we have is selling off future notes in Treasury bills. ITS
ARTIFICIAL STIMULUS!!!!!!!! It's gigantic new bills that will have to be paid or defaulted on! If we need to STIMULATE our economy, we can do
something better with it than killing people and increasing the power of the military industrial complex, which is already basically in control along
with the bankers! War DID force us into great production in WW2, but we HAD to. Starting wars to stimulate economies is insane. How about stop
letting Defense Contractors tell us something will cost X dollars and then multiply that with cost overruns almost every single time, while often not
producing quality products? F35 put off for years and starting to cost so much we may cancel many of them. F22 fleet grounded on and off recently.
The new destroyers too costly to build. the Seawolf too expensive. Faulty body armor. Cancelled projects that had already cost billions and
billions....... HOW DO WE PAY FOR IT ALL OTHER THAN BORROWING IF WE ARE SPENDING MORE THAN WE TAKE IN??????? Owing the Chinese? Tell me.... who is
it that actually has enough money to lend to whole countries? Who is in debt? Greece, Spain, Ireland, Portugal, Italy, Hungary, the US.... the list
is long. So where does the money come from?????????? WHO IS LENDING ALL THE MONEY AND WHERE DID THEY GET IT?

Heres a scary thought. What if...
The JCS, the presidents security advisor, and various members of the cabnet, and top ranking DoD members, along with the fed representives have gone
over all the numbers and came up with the simple fact that..
Were BROKE, and were never going to pay off our debt. So...
There briefing to the president..
Mr president..we;ve run all the scenarios off our comabt super computer and if we do a pre-imptive strike against such-and-such a target we can expect
a limited response from the old warsaw pact nations, i.e russia and its allies. We estimate a 20 percent loss in personel, and equipment. Course if we
send in a covert team and hit the target in question they are expendible. We can disavow any knowledge of the events. And we would still get ruffly
the same effect, then having a full military manuver. We can put all our forces in both afganistan and Iraq on standby alert. if a pincer movement of
ground forces are necessary we can have our two armies with boots on enemy soil in 24 hrs.
JCS naval admiral..
Mr. president..we have five carrier battle groups in the med at this very minute, along with various support ships and submarines, were ready.
JCS Air Force general..
Mr. President...or bases in turkey, italy, germany and isreal are on stand-by alert. Our stratgic forces are also on standby alert. I can guarentee
you sir you give my boys targets will use everything at our disposal. No other airforce in the world is our equal...will pound them flat, and
::chuckles:: look good on CNN for the folks back home..
Homeland Security chairperson..
Mr. President...We can instigate our black ops program "raven", once the order of attack is authorized, we won't have any problems with the
citizens, or the senate or other goverment orginizations out of the loop. They will all tow the line for the good of the country. Any decession will
be swiftly taken care of under the patriot act. Treason will not be tolerated..
The president...ah..you mean activating executive order 11940...hmm..it could work..continue...
Mr. president..were BROKE in fact were beyound BROKE, and theres I give it 6 months if that before everything falls apart. I agree with my collegues
that the only way to fix the ecconomy is a full blown WAR. War is great for stimulating the ecconomy. I'm sure the propeganda department can spin
something to churn up the national pride. To get the common folk up in arms. Lets not forget we did it after the attack on pearl harbor, and 911. Mr.
President we of the fed are behind this operation 100%...
Hmmm..alot to think of gentleman...
