“Now see how easy that was?  I just saved us almost 213 billion for just this year alone which is just about 2.3 times the amount in historically fictional savings Obama and the Republi-crats claimed that are really of no benefit at all. “

The waste, fraud and corruption in our federal government established over decades via career politicians and faux political party’s has brought our country to the brink of disaster.  The recent threat of a government shutdown over contrived budget differences was a golden opportunity to stop the corporately controlled machine that is killing us.  This should not have been a matter of preventing a shutdown…..we should have insisted they shut down.  And then we should have stepped up, cleaned house (and senate) and used this opportunity to rid ourselves of these prevaricator’s, thieves, charlatans…. corporate lackey’s all of them, and started over. 

After viewing the political trickery sold to the public as “spending cuts of historic proportions”, I decided to write my own list of REAL spending cuts that would benefit us all.  I believe I can save the country more than a measly 78 or 84 billion in pretended cuts put out by the Repli-crats.

This is my seven step plan that would save us billions just this year and help stem the flow of the surveillance state being planned for us by the Repuli-crats.  It would also be the beginning of defunding of federal corporate agencies which are a threat to our nation. More

The federal government claims the debt is $14.3 trillion dollars, but other economists say the US debt is closer to $200 trillion (based on projected revenue and projected spending).  Either way, a $38 billion budget reduction makes no difference.  Especially when the federal government’s actual spending will decrease by a mere $352 million compared to last year- as reported by the National Journal:

“The astonishing result, according to CBO, is due to several factors: increases in spending included in the deal, especially at the Defense Department; decisions to draw over half of the savings from rescissions, which are funds previously authorized but not spent; cuts to reserve funds; and to mandatory-spending programs, such as certain farm subsidies.”

Here is a sample of some of the so-called budget cuts:

1.  Department of Defense budget-

The DoD’s budget for 2010 was $685 billion, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to WikipediaObama called for a reduction in the DoD budget by $400 billion….over 12 years, which averages out to $33 billion a year. This cut is still pending a Pentagon review which leaves Obama with some wiggle room. Compare the money that the US spends on military industrial corporate welfare and illegal wars to China, with the second largest military expenditure, in the amount of $150 billion.

Who is the DoD’s real enemy?  It appears to be the American taxpayer and the US economy. More

House approves $447 billion omnibus spending measure

“The House voted Thursday to approve half a dozen spending bills contained in one large package, as the chamber races to complete its work before adjourning for the year.”

Should we be “grateful” that only $3.9 billion is earmarks?
House OKs $3.9 billion in earmarks in spending bill

Why not? Let one Starve on the Sanctuary:

“Earmark sponsors also defended the projects as important to the nation’s economic recovery. For example, Rep. Sam Farr (D-Carmel), who secured $800,000 for the Monterey Bay Sanctuary Scenic Trail, said the project would help generate tourism dollars.”

Edumicate the masses on the aquatic livestock….that they cannot catch legally :
“Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), a leading critic of pork-barrel spending, singled out for criticism $200,000 provided for the Aquatic Adventures Science Education Foundation in San Diego. ”

and tantalize them with tattered jean design:
“$250,000 for textile research at UC Davis.”

Yes Legislative Branch – there is a Santa Claus – and he resides within and close to the American Taxpayers wallet uhm – heart.

sniff. sniff.
