Now I get it. It won’t be enough to jack our taxes through the roof during a recession and take control of our 401Ks to pay for the new Great Society planned by the Democrats, so they have to find other sources of revenue. Now, aside from looking for spare change under the cushions in Congress, how else could they raise the money?
I know! They can cut defense spending by 25%! Cha-CHING!!!
Barney Frank (aka "Fat Bawney," who brought us the current economic crisis) and the Democrats want to gut defense spending in the midst of two wars, while Islamist terror groups wage jihad against us, rogue nations seek nuclear weapons, a resurgent Russia grows aggressive, and China builds a navy to challenge us in the Western Pacific. Oh yeah, and Fat Frank wants to do this even after his party’s vice-presidential candidate said we’d face a major international crisis within six months of
The One’s ascension Obama’s inauguration.
Genius. Sheer genius.
I say we reward such brilliance and wisdom by giving them a supermajority in the Congress and control of the White House!
Why are you laughing?
Seriously, there’s an old Latin epigram from Vegetius that runs Si vis pacem, para bellum — "If you want peace, prepare for war." The opposite is also true: If you want war, beg for peace. The Frank Plan would bring about Biden’s crisis by weakening our military. I guarantee it.
Voters should keep that in mind on Election Day.
