Stage set for Obama 2.0

    No. Only part of gov is paid for by tax dollars. Exports sales of weaponry and borrowed funds...you can't simply count these two things out, Prophet. (and thx for the Vm)

    If not for the export sale of weaponry, our goose would have been cooked long ago.

    Something like 80% of weapons sold in the world are sold by US and Israel.
    Subtract weapons profits from the accounting books of US and Israel from 1947-now...see?

      CRAYON: Sad but true. And lets add that the U.S.A. has "backed & funded" MANY foreign "leaders" that have turned their backs on uu, and actually support todays terrorists!

    For example, google "Theicher Affidavit" and see a list of weapons and exact dates sold. (of weapons sold to Saddam Hussein by US and Israel. Weapons paid for by the Iraqi people AND used on the Iraqi peoples) And check the dates...some of those sales were made AFTER Saddam had already used previously purchased weapons on his own citizenry. A VIOLATION OF INTERNATIONAL LAW to provide weapons to any gov ui using them on their owm peoples!

    *Teicher Affidavit. Sworn testimony by the highest ranking US government official to ever come-clean about US and Israel arming a madman after he had committed major atrocities against his own peoples, a violation of international law.

    So you think its a good idea to permit US Marines to take military action against US citizens? You think it'll stop with gangs? Remember how eager you were for this when a plssed off neighbor reports you as conducting "terrorist activties" in your home & you're woken up staring down the barrel of an assault rifle in your own bedroom. Take guns away from civilians & put armed soldiers in the streets... Great idea if you're on the socialist bandwagon

      Thank you, Sokman, I have been saying pretty much the same thing all along.
      This person advocates droning inner city gangs...can you imagine the collateral damage on that??
