Is it your shift now?
It's not a direct quote.

I don't think that is quite what she meant, but clearly she believes in Government as does every single politician. Republicans say it's okay to exploit to gain wealth, no need to feel guilty as it's our God given right to deny any one their God given rights. Democrats say it isn't okay to exploit to gain wealth but it's the status quo, here's a cookie it will be okay.

If the 25 mil of you are working and that is not covering the expenses, then your govt must be printing money the same way ours is....or is there some other magical method?
So 50 percent goes to healthcare and other services and you are happy with that? But you insist that because we are spending on defense and not healthcare somehow that is wrong. The fact is that we are spending way more on healthcare than is obvious. Hospitals have been closed down in California because of the ambulances coming over the border with illegals for treatment here. That is a fact. Michelle Obama's lil ol hospital turned away some poor patients, so don't get any ideas she cares about the poverty stricken. She goes to Paris on the taxpayer dole, among other things. I have zero respect for her family living it up on our dime. So don't go griping about how we spend on defense and then praise Mr Obama for sending our military in to Libya with the French Socialists. Obama is a spendy as anyone on things other than healthcare. He just pretends that he isn't as much of a warmonger as everyone else. In fact Democrats have gotten us into some of the biggest wars, including WWII. Thanks to our spending, a lot of European countries are not speaking Deutsch.
My observation on spending of Healthcare versus Defense was just only that, just an observation. Everything in life ends up being a trade-off. You can't have a massive Defense Budget and pay into a collective social fund.

The conservatives need to understand the Republican party is infested with progressives from the top down. TPTB want us to point and support the other side because at the end of the day they control both sides.
So the only pathetic thing I see is people blindly following one of these two parties. BUSH=OBAMA
The truth is so simple to see when you peel back all the crap. We are a fools. Arrogant simple minded easily lead fools.
