I call bullshit. I say there is PLENTY of money.

Just not for the elderly, the sick or the middle class.

But if you work for the Pentagon and you need a flight somewhere? Hey take one of our private lear jets. Oh you need a steak in the middle of the night? Let me call one of our private chefs. Oh you are tired and need some R&R? Stop by one of our 234 world class golf courses. Need some money? Here look in this closet, 9 billion in cash that went "MISSING" in Iraq.. Pay for it? That's what the suckers.. I mean taxpayers are for.

We are suckers. This is all bullshit. There's fucking money everywhere. It's just being hoarded, controlled and sent overseas to avoid paying taxes. And it's still not enough. They are coming for it all.

1. 10 Jet fighters at $350Million a piece? No problem. Because you never know when we

may get into a aerial dogfight with the Taliban's Air Force.

3. The US is rolling in $$$.

The richest large nation in the world. But the thieves want to raid the SS Trust Fund. In fact, we just reconfirmed our yearly commitment of One-Half a Billion Taxpayer Dollars to corrupt little Uganda to help Kill the Gays.

4. Totally

It's all about priorities- and right now the priority is the 1% and their Military.

Yes, it's THEIR military. It's also THEIR Gov't. They stole it fair and square.

8. American households have $60 trillion dollars in wealth. That's right, $60 TRILLION.


Of course, the vast majority of that is tied up in the estates of the 1%.

So when the 1% says "we're broke," they are lying. What they are really saying is, "you're broke - and we're not sharing."

9. It's always a problem of distribution, not the wealth itself........

One of these days we might find the balls to take what's been stolen and hoarded. Because that's the only way we're going to get it. By taking it.

10. Of course we do. But there is one problem.

The last president who tried to stand up to the 1% (see the 1962 steel crisis) and the Military-Industrial-Intelligence Complex (examples too numerous to list) got his brains blown out for his troubles.

The US has gone straight into the shitter since 11/22/63, which amounted to nothing less than a coup and the end of American representative democracy.

11. cut from the pentagon not ss, medicare or medicaid.

I am a military brat who married a career navy guy who after retirement works for the dod.

These three things will cut way more money then you could ever cut from entitlements.

Repeal the Patriot Act.

Stop Privatizing the Military

Get Out Of Afghanistan

When there are no more billionaires, or even hundred millionaires, then come and talk to me about how there is not enough money.

16. Aside from all that,

are you enjoying the Kabuki Theater?

Is the excitement building to a climax?

Does it give you the impression that you have a chance?
That, maybe, there ARE "negotiations" in progress?
...that somebody is actually fighting for YOU?

Does it help foster the illusion of a "choice"?

19. We can give billions in free money, er subsidies to Big Oil and war contractors...

But we're going over the Fiscal Cliff because we can't fund Social Security. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

By the way Fiscal Cliff would make a great name for a jam band.
