As Margaret Thatcher once said, "Socialism is a marvelous system, it can help a lot of people. The problem is that you eventually run out of other people's money." These guys in DC cannot even find so-called "cuts" in the increased spending. It is not like they will be spending less on any program, just not as much as they wanted to. Real simple solution, nobody gets that promised pay raise of 4-8%, nobody gets new equipment (copier, computers), nobody gets paid travel, All seminars are cancelled or are done on the net, etc. I think I can find 85 billion, real easy, it just means the lavish lifestyle of DC will be hit. When did we get so stupid? I guess it was when the Department of Education was created.

This is an incredible admission of the president's indifference to the troops he leads. As he has played politics for the past four months since his re-election, he has used the military and its personnel and families...
