    Let your elderly, ill and poor fend for themselves. But don't even think about cutting "Defense". There's an Endless War to fight.

    At what point will America wake up? This congress, president and treasury secretary have no clue how to solve our economy, get banks to lend, businesses to hire, relief on regulations, and get out of the way so Americans can be successful! The crisis is we will soon be worse than a 3rd world country. No 401k, no savings accounts, no stock market, no stable businesses, food shortages, straving seniors, unpaid mortgages, unpaid electric and utility bills, bank ruptcies, and crisis on the streets. CNN, FOX, MSMBC, CBS, ABC and NBC have to stop panicing the world. Other countries will turn thier backs on us. Don't push them over the edge!
