immoral and unjust entitlement programs…
So lets see, let me know which federal programs are “immoral and unjust”? You seem to be the self-appointed arbiter of morality and justice for how we spend everyones’ taxes. What’s your verdict:
the Public School system?
Student loans and grants?
Business loans and grants?
Housing loans and grants?
Are any of these “immoral and unjust entitlement programs”? Just curious what you’ve decided, for everyone.
How come the people who complain about spending money on worthless stuff like Medicare and school lunch programs, never seem to bat an eye over the military budget, for example spending money on massively expensive weapons that don’t even work (like Star Wars), or outdated weapon systems that will never be useful, or no-bid federal contracts in general?
I always considered that kind of thinking to be bizarre and hypocritical. If you want to be frugal with tax dollars, great. But don’t be frugal with America’s little old ladies’ social security and food stamps while giving massively bloated federal contracts to grease the palms of campaign donors. Lets have some basic human decency in how we spend our tax money, as well as common sense.
And Bush is spending 2 billion tax dollars a week on his open-ended adventure in bringing Iraqis the vote (or whatever the mission is, this month). I wonder if that bothers you at all. Talk about a waste of taxpayers’ money. Doesn’t seem to raise a peep here, that’s for sure.
Seems that many of today’s conservatives are confused, and don’t know what they believe in, anymore. They say confused things like “Big deficits don’t matter” and “It’s up to us to protect Saudi Arabia from attacks” and other non-conservative statements. [/quote]
If you want to start a thread about redistributing other people’s wealth through force of government, go for it. I was under the impression you wanted to discuss Fred Thompson. I made a comment. You took that comment and tried to make something out of it, that it wasn’t. I called you on it.
