  1. This was in the news 1 day before 9/11 about 2.3 Trillion dollars that was unaccounted for. It got lost in the shuffle the next day when the planes hit the WTC.

  2. Kramer: It's a write off for them.

    Jerry: How is it a write off?

    Kramer: They just write it off.

    Jerry: Write it off what?

    Kramer: Jerry, all these big companies, they write off everything.

    Jerry: You don't even know what a write off is.

    Kramer: Do you?

    Jerry: No. I Don't.

    Kramer: But they do. And they're the ones writing it off.

    Jerry: I wish I could have the last 20 seconds of my life back.

    No mainstream politician will mention defense cuts. That really seems to be the third rail in politics. But god help us if we don't make deep, deep cuts.
     
  7. Deep? Can't even get trimming anywhere..

    Get out of Iraq, so that we can quite hemoraging money in that hell hole. But there is a heck of a lot of govermental waste that needs to go, before we start slashing defense spending.

    I would also estimate that 90% of what Obama ran on will now be impossible to implement.

    His health care initiative will cost 8x what the Iraq are costs us each year.
     
  9. it was 7 years ago, before iraq war, how much was stolen up to now 6T dollars?

    nice amount, you can probably buy a whole mid sized country like Ukraine or Thailand with it :eek:

    american people's reaction? naah i don't care, honey where's my pack of popcorn?
     
  10. Here is the WHOLE 51 seconds of that seinfeld bit so those of you that didnt see the show know exactly what it is they are writing off.
