14. Don't worry, Uncle Sam knows how to spend it wisely.
On connected cronies. Here's an unconnected crony I admire:

'Pentagon's trillion dollar spending spree exceeds general funds of all U.S. states'

...Personally, I prefer my own Ross Plan to all of the cuts suggested above. The Ross Plan would require the Peace Corps and the Pentagon to switch budgets and personnel numbers. Restricted to $400 million a year and 8,600 troops the Pentagon couldn't possibly raise all the hell it does. And with a $1 trillion budget and three million workers, the Peace Corps, (which candidate Obama promised to double from 7,800 to 16,000 by 2011 but, of course, never has might just work wonders.)

Amen. And thank you for caring, onethatcares! Truly appreciate it, my Friend.
