    Certainly, you realize that there is no reasonable explanation. Why would you even ask such a thing?

    President Obama is a puppet ... no more and no less than George Bush was.

    He does as he is told by the financial string pullers in this country ... just like GWB did.

    This is why we need Congress to step up and do their job protecting the interests of Americans.

    Wall Street and the Fed ... the people that were greatly healed when the financial collapse hit. The same people who used the money given to them to heal themselves without stimulating the private sector. The same people who are very happy making money from the global economy at the expense of the USA economy.

    Those people ... They are infiltrated in DC ... everywhere. In the cabinet, in the DOJ, lobbyists who have the ear of the DC. the same people who have not been charged or tried for anything that led to the near financial collapse in this country ... those people. Foreign aid helps keep these countries in a semi de-stabilized state ... just what the string pullers want.

    Ever notice that Nobel peace prize winners usually have a hand in military action?

    The bottom 80% of the country ... the voters ... hold about 11% of the wealth in this country. Politics in DC is governed by the top 1% the string pullers ... the top 20% ... the 2nd tier string pullers. These people have investments around the world ... the military and foreign aid helps protect their interests.

    Ever notice how Nobel Peace prize winners have a hand in military matters?
    People who have a hand in killing get awards for peace ... like Obama and almost Bush.

    The same reason why 2000 illegal immigrants were released from prison and the same reason and bag checkers at the airport were let go. To strong arm,scare and intimidate the public at large. This is what hope and change looks like for real from a 3rd world socialist president.

    But not to worry we still have these promising programs that are still up and running.

    You see the trouble here, Icy?

    You're busy saying Obama, like the righty cat's-paws in Congress, is also part of the big money, big banking, ubercapitalist cabal.

    Moments later, your "allies" in this assessment say he's a socialist.

    If mainstream Dems are part of the same capitalist cabal, and Obama is a mainstream Dem, you need a Dem to the left of the mainstream to take care of these problems. But all your theoretical Obama-hating allies hate him for being too left. He's not even a liberal, in practice, and you've already got him identified in your minds as Che and Stalin and Mao all rolled into one.

    I know, yikes. He's absolutely the worst person on our political scene, except everybody else on our political scene. I'm not down with the "Obama's just another capitalist tool" stuff, because I think there is a difference. But your most recent complaint is probably more on-target than the usual pabulum.

    Eh, live and learn, die and forget it all, ah reckon. Plus, I'm sure if he didn't send a chunk to the Syrian opposition, half of you guys would be up in arms like you were in Libya, where they took out Gaddhafi without U.S. boots on the ground.

    Oh and by the way, for Chopblock - the sequester is 85 billion, with a b. There are a thousand millions in a billion. This matters.

    CAIRO — Secretary of State John F. Kerry released $250 million in badly needed economic assistance for Egypt on Sunday, telling the country’s divided political classes that they must make economic and political reforms to qualify for additional U.S. support.

    ROFLMAO A few threads ago it was 30,000 illegal immigrants.

    What happened to the other 28,000?

    Oh, and just so you know.....the program they got released under?

    It was started by George Bush.

    The founding fathers talked all the time about "general welfare" types of expenditures, and Hamilton did several Federalist papers about the necessity that the federal government be able to both tax and borrow - not just for war, but for civic improvements. They didn't want us to seize on their writings as excuses to decline -- they wanted to be the next Rome, for the love of God or Zeus or whoever. You think the Colosseum wasn't for "the people," or the network of roads, or the whole outlook that their "world city" was supposed to make a Roman feel like he was in Rome wherever he went? You think they'd accept cuts to the lions and tigers to stick in the gladiator ring? You think they'd say "Oh great more taxes to build more baths?" No!

    Now I'm not saying I agree with everything Rome did... just that the founding fathers weren't all running around screaming "every man for himself! Wheee!" That wasn't the program.

    Patro clearly wanted to quietly withdraw the other 28,000, because it wasn't true... without ever acknowledging he was wrong in the first place.
