Fanny and Freddy also got bonuses and the current administration also gave the Federal Reserve more power.

the too big to fail term is a joke GM was too big to fail,Fanny Freddy is too big to fail, student loans is too big to fail.

The next bubble burst will be the same as the last one they created the problem to begin with,.

Cuts to defense after this week do not make any sense whatsoever if people are so freaking set on cutting money cut the damn foreign aid going to those people.;

Now more than ever we need a strong military it is a shame the events of the past week haven't woken up those people who say "gut defense".

rumsfeld is still looking for the missing $2 trillion. yes, trillion.

black budgets, skunk works and contractors selling the u.s. government $700 screws and $1,200 hammers can get easily get by with $50 billion less.

GM succeeded

Fanny and Freddy make the banks and corporations a lot of money.

And so do student loans.

Are you against the American auto industry, home ownership and higher education?

no.,, but our navy,,, army,, national guard,,, is not big enough to maintain the protestors? if budget is cut,,, it would make detaining protestors that much harder?

right now our national defense is not mighty? the trillions of tax dollars spent in the past so years,, have gotten us no defense? no ability to stop a minor problem? if it were to be cut a little all hell would break loose?

What I am against is rewarding failures:

Gm is a failure
Fanny and Freddy are failures
Student loan debt at a trillion dollars with no job is a failure.

WhaT?

Maybe people need to wake up at the trillions we currently spend and continue to spend on social engineering as in free homes,free educations,free healthcare,free cell phones etc.

Current us federal spending on entitlements alone is over 2.2 trillion dollars.

70 million on SS
70 million on medicare
50 million on medicaid
25 million on unemployment
47 million on welfare

A student loan debt at over 1 trillion dollars.

Fanny and Freddy still over over 6 trillion in housing mortgages but hey go on gut the only thing that makes all that social engineering possible.

Relative safety to have a productive economy and secure that resource that there is no economy without.

So it's better to spend money killing people in countries that haven't attacked America other than having people starving in the streets. Unlike you would rather that my country didn't look like a third world nation.

It is not the military's job to handle protestors just like OWS who handled that?

Local police that is why they have them or their military.

Actually is not bad to own your home, buy a new car just because they are assemble in the US the parts are not made in the US and higher education.

But when the tax payer money keeps been used to keep the crocks from getting bankrupted is nothing but waste abuse and fraud.

This is why I would rather focus on the criminals and not the value the policies provide.

I agree with this as well.
Why send our hard earned tax dollars to prop up foreign governments?
Why not just close the embassies in countries like Yemen, where they hate us anyway?

You know the hypocrisy of political whores vs the trusting in government and political party followers. Due to the fact that Obama hoax of defense cuts is hitting my family personally right now, I took the time to do the research.

He is actually increasing the welfare state with cuts on employment in the US while cutting the contractors power to create new employment, but at the same time favoritism within contracting agencies is been abuse, and corruption is rampant, with under budgets to still do the job and outsourcing within state lines.

At the same time, the almost trillion of dollars on Federal aid to foreign countries 40+ should have Americans raising their arms in the air in protest, specially when our tax payer dollars is mostly funneled to the same countries now that are having violence riots and have killed Americans.

The hypocrisy has no end, those countries will still get our hard earned tax payer dollars and incresing yearly.

People keep putting their glass colored glasses and live in hope while been robbed blind.

Yeah, The Army probably should not have spent 5 Billion on the new "Army Combat Uniform" That they addmit was a waist. There is so much waist in the military is isn't funny. They need to have a "budget cut" so they will learn how to stick to a budget. So does every other alphabet organization of the feds.

Get rid of the Dept. of indoctrination, oops! I mean, Dept. Education, SS and a few others and put that money into "defence"

No over there.

Not here.

IF a protest agianst a foreign embassy occurred in the Us the locals would be responsbile for their safety

Works the same way in other countries.

Home ownership improve economic output of individuals and increase investment,
it has been proven in several studies.

How about the millions of American jobs that provide parts and services to the American auto industry?

How about the fact that education increases the economic earning potential on individuals?

All of these are policies to increase economic activity.

While were at it, why don't they get rid of the TSA and DHS as well?
Oh, that's right, they created that not for foreign terrorists, but for the plans they have in store in the very near future, when the populace will not willingly go along with it.

so telling people to go in to hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt is suppose to be beneficial to the economy.

Yeah that really makes sense.
