December 27, 2013

Bigotry and RACISM are being PROMOTED every single day by Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, Barack Obama Michelle Obama and DEMOCRATS riding the wave to their demise. You can't continue a lie for long as even the blind will see through it eventually!

TOT the tea party is a bunch of white , dim-witted bigots that want to shove their religion and hate down our throats.. Ever look at picture of a tea party event? Just a sea of vacant eyed white faces dressed in duck dynasty wife beaters. But I do applaud them splitting the republican party and costing them elections.. So there is that. LOL

The NASA ones are the last thing from wasteful. Both studies mentioned are being used to help with long term space flights. We will need the knowledge one day when our Earth will no longer be habitable and we need a way to establish colonies on other celestial bodies. How about we stop wasting money on $100 hammers for defense contractors? Or bailing out the banks that screwed over the country? Or giving tax breaks to the wealthy?

The ONES that oppose this waste and corruption are called the TEA Party. you know the fringe! The extremists that want to control what we spend and preserve our nations power. You can say that there are not enough of the 535 individuals that accept the responsibility. But the "not a single one" comment is as false as the 'you can keep your insurance period line"!

adkkev, and what do you call them when they close those strings? How can you stop the spending machine when the spenders control the media and use their position to divide and conquer rather than work to compromise? How do you stop the spending when every attempt is viewed as an affront to the over reaching policies like Obamacare? There is more to it than you contend.

"Coburn's list included 100 items of federal spending totaling $30 billion. Here is just a (bad) taste:" ???? I think you forgot to list the examples.

Lets see if I have this right; we actually pay a congressman to ANNUALLY compile a 'Wastebook' of Federal spending by him and his companions in Washington? Is this supposed to be a joke? I, for one, am NOT friggin amused having Sen. Coburn shove Congress's abyssmal record of waste up the Taxpayers a**. Instead of insulting us you dolt, FIX IT by deducting those waste $$ you figured from next years budget, do YOUR effing job Senator. Me and a few million other Americans will gladly do it for you if you're unwilling to more than make a joke out of it. I would like to propose an Amendment that would place Sessions of Congress in each States Capitol for a period of 4 years each. Keep these Congress critters out of Washington and back into America where it belongs.
