ARREST BUSHCO & RICO PNAC/FARA AIPAC...PNAC is Bush/Cheney's "Helter Skelter" !

UNITE IN SOLIDARITY !!!

Cutting 10 percent of an infinite number with no oversight does not impress me. If our governments intent was to cut spending on wars we would end them instead of escalating them. They have not removed our troops from The fertile crescent but yet they are escalating forces and bombings in Afganistan. Not to mention the bombings inside Pakistan. Chris Dorsey, RVA4Peace

Obama proposed 10%.

Just clarifying. Nobody will dispute it's too little. Bash away.

I do not have sound on my computer but I think Frank is full of it. I also think we would need to know what the number we would take 25 percent off of is. I do not think any body in congress has an accurate dollar amount to quantify the barter system at the top amongst the energy and arms industries, and the central banks Chris Dorsey, RVA4Peace

the way he took on the little turd and stuck his nose in it about the war. But I just like Barney anyways, can't help it, he makes me giggle.

Would be much better a start.

10% is mere window dressing.

But then, the economic collapse in this country may well be the end of the military as we know it anyhow.
