  2. This guy is a defense hawk.

    There are plenty of aliens on Earth we could spend money on to control.

    The border
    The inner cities

    Meanwhile, major suppliers to the DoD are indicating they will have to lay off thousands of people if government spending on defense is in fact cut as scheduled.

    Great! Defense SHOULD be cut, and private companies have to do what they can to cut costs and stay in the black.

    What's your point?

    Did you not think that cutting the bloated defense industry back would result in layoffs?

    No, he's saying now is not the time to be cutting defense with the aliens on the way.

    Obama had a chance to validate that approach... it was what he ran on ----- infrastructure. We could have used safer roads and bridges and probably a good train or two and some airports. Even better internet.

    That might have worked.

    What have gave us was porkulous and campaign paybacks proof democrats can't be trusted to do the right things with the purse strings.

    That's your opinion.

    The point is, government spending can and does create jobs.
  9. Lucrum


    It's my opinion too, coward.

    Yes, but it's not the federal governments job and the private sector does it more efficiently anyway.

    not obamas... not pelosis, not reids. its some crazy figure like 300,000 to create a 50,000 a year job.

    Obama and the dems should have fixed the energy grid or created a pipeline.

    We already have wars... so Krugman had to create aliens.
    Lets stop the crazy spending. govt spending has been destroying the dollar its a massive drag on the economy.
