The Constitution clearly states that the role of Congress is to provide for the common defense of the United States. So therefore, the current administration has elected to ignore that requirement and stop all funding for the F-22 Raptor.
I’m not suggesting that we need – or do not need – the F-22 for defense of the country. I honestly do not know, but my interest involves the oath of office taken by Congress and the president, you know, that part about preserving, protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States.
So the F-22 gets cut, but $1.7 million goes to a honey bee factory in Weslaco, Texas? What other funding is the administration cutting out of the Pentagon’s budget?
On top of that, we have a government sponsored program to provide free cell phones – including air time – to those in need! Get this crap, with my emphasis in bold.
TracFone Wireless believes that cell phone ownership is a right and an important tool for individual success in today’s world.
The SafeLink Wireless service will provide eligible low-income households a free cell phone, mobile access to emergency services and free 41 minutes of air time, monthly, for one year. The cell phone offers in-demand features: voicemail, text, call waiting, international calling to over 60 destinations and caller ID.
Did I mention that the F-22 is shovel ready? Remember all those jobs President Obama wanted to “create or save”? Evidently there is a category of jobs he doesn’t count among those worthy of retention –those on the national security shift.
The piece goes on …
Secretary Gates is providing a little cover for the Pentagon budget-cutters at OMB whose priorities are with increased NEA spending and a new fleet of hybrid cars for the government, but not much. Whether or not his heart is in it won’t and shouldn’t still the sharp criticism headed this budget’s way.
The Obama administration and the Democrat Congress will continue to route funding that is the federal government’s responsibility to programs for which they have no mandate.
We’re loosing our freedom to tyrany on a daily basis with liberals and socialists in control. What will you do?
