I seriously don’t get what is going on in our government. Our budget is in the toilet, yet we’re pooping money out hand over fist for our military to act as the police force for the world when we should be working to improve our country! We’re hearing about cutting back on healthcare and human services, yet congress votes themselves pay raises!
I think our president talks a big game, but he’s not taking us anywhere! I would get us the hell OUT of the middle east and work on doing things that will make our country strong – such as reinvesting in our space and science programs, work on getting programs in place to get more people into the workforce so they’re not relying on welfare (that our government is working to do away with in any productive sense), and cutting back on the one HUGE, GLARING hole in our economy – we need to cut back the military budget!
Just think of what we could do with the $650,000,000 we spent on Libya so far! Think of how many school programs we could fund with that! The rest of the world is most likely laughing behind our backs while we plunge ourselves into bankruptcy! Do THEY come to OUR aid when we’re in trouble? I haven’t seen anyone step up yet!
Our country is screwed…….the people are just to ignorant to see it yet. We’d better learn to speak Chinese in case they decide to collect on all we owe them, which is a sizeable amount, I assure you. So I say to our leaders……quit pussyfooting around, get it done and get our country back on track, or the people are going to speak up, and not in the way you want – believe it!
