    Not to worry. The Republican accountants are only against spending that helps people who need it. This is definitely not in that category.

    With the F-35 having more problems, and not having the range of our current fleet, and the F-22 not being used, tell me again why Defense spending is sacrosanct?

    The F-35 is necessary because all politicians know that government DOES create jobs in defense, even though many conservatives deny that government can create jobs anywhere else. This is known as “weaponized Keynesianism,” and is a key belief of congressional Republicans and many Democrats.

    Well, since most of the people the democrats think need it, do not need it, we can start with wellfare and foreign aid.

    And it is democrat and liberal policy to take from the workers to support the lazy wellfare clans of California, Michigan and Illinois.

    The Accountants Against Spending have never been against military spending. Go figure!

    We’re only against spending on things that benefit hippies. As soon as ‘that one’ leaves the pentagon, we’ll put our sign back down and go back to droning on.

    If there were no spending there would be no accountants.

    let sequestration begin.
    I’ll gladly start.
    I.e., if it hurts me personally, fine.

    The built the F-22 but have not found a reason to use it. (Also that design flaw that is poisoning the pilots.) Neither the F-22 and F-35 really are needed. But they are filling the pockets of the rich corporations. Rich off of the tax money from us.

    Zoid, you need to spend a month as an unemployed, disabled old person with six kids. That might change your tune.

    Nos Nevets heard that somewhere and is so impressed he cannot believe everybody does not repeat the statement.

    The defense of the country is in the constitution in the words for “Provide for National Defense”. So we might as well make quality weapons.

    The defense industry does not make money for the country, unless the tax payers get direct money from forighn sales. Don’t know much about that might happen might not.

    Yes the government can make jobs it cannot make money. The federal government even took over a brothel in Nevada at one time because of a law that said all business that taken by the government for back taxes will continued to run by the government until it can be sold, to collect the back taxes. The government proved it could not even sell sex and booze.
