For your consderation... Twilight Zone didn't even see this one coming.



President Obama - You're getting your advice from the people who caused the problem. Why not listen to the little people who elected you instead?

Thanks to National People's Action.

6. Either than, or we keep going deeper into wonderland

Either way, we left sanity and facts behind a LONG time ago.

12. Just Emailed Obama

that if Secretary Panetta thinks there was $74 billion too much in the Defense budget just passed maybe he
NEEDS to VETO it.
People need to let him know this is a HUGE chunk of the Social Security money they are attempting to extract from the budget.
Take those Defense dollars and shore this UP.

13. Don't Make Any Deal!

"Mr. Obama: Don't make a deal with the GOP; It's a COOKBOOK!" If you're of a certain age and know the old show, you'll get the reference.

20. I always wondered how the perpetraitors of the Middle East trillion dollar boondoggle would be

treated. With champagne from democrats on the houses of the poor and middle class, of course. What a country.

22. "Fix the debt" is a steaming pile of horse shit.

It's more like "fix the debt so the wealth addicted don't have to pay taxes" or "fix the debt so we have all the money in the world to throw at pointless wars we'll never win and the companies with more money than god get free additional funds on the backs of the taxpayers."

27. You Need A Glass Of "Instant Smile"

The TZ episode "Number 12 Looks Just Like You" was a story about a future in which everyone was made beautiful and happy but they didn't really care about anything beyond the superficial.

30. I'm thinking the solution may be to get a global coalition

of the willing.

Willing to force the US to get their dollars away from the war machine. Christ we're global bullies, pretty much despised across the pond and north and south for keeping the angry man alive and kicking.

Obama would listen to his global image tarnishing, he's into that.

31. We're not despised around the world.

The US is not hated in most parts of the world, only in some parts of the world. And USA's reputation has improved since we got Obama.

But, whatever it takes to get the military spending in check is worth discussing.
