We Can't Afford To Be Everywhere Forever

Recommended Posts

We can't afford all of this. At least Obama is reduced the troops in Iraq, and is bringing them home from Afghanistan.

Neocons like Rick Perry and John McCain want our troops to be everywhere forever. We can't afford the obligations we currently have overseas, much less protracted battles in all four corners of the globe.

 

We have problems to address here at home, like the debt, infrastructure, the borders, and Social Security solvency. We would be wise to focus our money at home for a while so we can get caught up on things here.

You mean your annointed one can't fix everything??????

 

He is the worst president ever. A lot of the mess is because of him.

And you Democrats are doing such a *wonderful* job on all those problems. :rolleyes:

By the way, such thinking is what led to World War 2. Just saying...

 

Obama brought our troops home from Iraq.

And just look how *wonderful* that has turned out.

 

Almost as well as his Libya venture. :D

We just can't afford to invade anywhere else, or increase our involvement in the current areas. All we can afford to do is withdraw at this point.

I really don't fathom where you get this notion.

 

The US currently spends less as a percentage of GDP than almost ever …

Why don't you just be honest for once, Will.

 

You don't want us to spend ANYTHING on Defense.

 

PS …

 

The real problem is entitlements.

 

That is what is degrading our infrastructure.

 

That is what is exploding the debt.

 

That is what is keeping the borders open.

 

That is what is driving SS insolvency.

 

WAKE UP WILL.

Who's talking about being "everywhere forever"? Geesh.

 

We can afford to go into Syria, Iraq (again), Russia, Ukraine, Libya would probably be good, Afghanistan, Nigeria, some of Central America, Mexico, and....a few other places - maybe Gaza. And DEFINITELY Iran, without being "everywhere" and"forever".

 

This is not a big deal.

We can't even afford to stay in Afghanistan. Our debt is out of control. We need domestic spending.

We have infrastructure, borders, and Social Security that needs our financial attention. We can't afford to waste money overseas.

It is easy to see by your vernacular which "we the people" you represent here in cyberspace. there are The "royal we" idealiasts, the "loyal we" disciples of ideologues, the "subjective we" groupies picking sides, and the "object we" controlled by laws that rule social behavior of those born supplying lifetimes within self contained genetic progression of a species in this atmosphere as citizens in the first three classifications of "we" spaced separately here now as sole results of simple compounding ancestry inverting life into specifically placed lifetimes naturally without a word needed.

 

Infustructure of ideology takes what to maintain a chain of command educated on the need to understand self contained individually. You ratfaced little twerp, drop dead malcontent.

 

You will give away your ancestry to direct social awareness real is but a dream of reality's superior intellectual design fooling civil behavior to become civic self destructive minds needing your adopted philosophy.

 

Instincts run silent and deep, never over an intellectual's concepts of could be.

Yea lets make social security what it was intended for not what it is

What has it become from what it was intended to provide by name "Social Security? securing society be salvation for genetic continuation as designed by authors of social authority and rank gets privileges the ruled cannot share equally while providing the social divides needed to keep civilization at each others ideological throats.

 

Explain how talking points become wheels on social movements? As simple as placing hypothetical lines as grids on a globe making time relative, not actually taking place constantly here.

How do you know Social Security wasn't intended to be retirement pay?

February 26, 2013

 

"Social Security was never intended to be a pension you could live on. Instead, it was designed to be a supplement to retirees' income. Currently, the average Social Security payout is $1,262 a month, according to the Social Security Administration (SSA). That's an annual income of $15,144."
