I'll beliveve America is broke when...........
Edited on Fri Feb-18-11 12:48 PM by samplegirl
when I see our Military recalled from around the world. When I see the US Government stop giving away billions in tax cuts
to the rich. When all Military/Industrial contracts are nulled and VOID!!!!!!!!!!! When all Taxpayer monies are no longer
disbursed in the "Faith Initiative Program" When Repulican Representatives no longer recieve a Government Paycheck!!---and
so should the citizens of Ohio & Wisconsin!!!

All in the meantime...Kasich
Kasich is transfering Ohio tax monies to another bankster!

I think this is important because he transfered Ohio pension fund management to Lehman and they ripped them off. Now here's comes another scheme.........Sequoia Capital http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Kvamme

1. When I see Halliburton pack up and go away.
When the elected officials lose their benefits.

4. Amen SampleGirl ...k&r
America is broke the same way Donald Trump was broke when he was divorcing Ivana. He went on TV and declared that all his money was tied up in losing endeavors and he didn't have a dime... until he got what he wanted in the settlement.

5. When I see them stop building high tech jails
and crowd control equipment for foreign and domestic use. When I stop seeing American labels on tear gas cans in Egypt (made in PA)....

great post, we could go on and on with this subject.


I'll believe America is broke when genetically altered pigs fly out my derriere!

7. uh... not realizing we're broke is how we got into this mess
We're way beyond broke. The country is running on massive debt that's taken out of the hides of the working stiffs and now their children and grandchildren's hides. The wealthy just shove off the massive debt they ring up onto everyone else and make it our problem while they walk away with all their toys to go ring up yet more massive debt to be taken out of our hides.

The problem isn't that we aren't massively broke, the problem is that the wealthy with the help of the government doesn't give a shit since it isn't them that will ever feel the pain because they have designed the system where the drunken sailor spending will never come home to roost on the drunken sailors.

8. So as proof that we're not in dire financial straits
you point out all our exorbitant spending?

"How could Uncle Cletus have so much debt? He has a jetski, new truck, and a fishing boat. Seems like he's doing fine!"
