Priorities

And before y’all start ragging on the Obamessiah for managing to not only perpetuate the previous RINO administration’s Hooveresque spending spree, but insisting on actually expanding it just like FDR (hmmm… funny how history just keeps repeating itself. Especially in nations where a majority of the population would have trouble reciting historical facts not mentioned on Oprah or American Idiot over the last two weeks), we find it incumbent upon us to mention that he does have plans for cutting expenses as well. We think that you can all guess where:

The Obama administration has asked the military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff to cut the Pentagon’s budget request for the fiscal year 2010 by more than 10 percent — about $55 billion — a senior U.S. defense official tells FOX News.

Last year’s defense budget was $512 billion. Service chiefs and planners will be spending the weekend “burning the midnight oil” looking at ways to cut the budget — looking especially at weapons programs, the defense official said.

“Billions for free abortions on demand, expanded welfare programs and general pork for the buying of votes, not one PENNY for defense!”

And in the middle of a global war too.

Now that’s Change™!

Not so sure about the Hope™, though, but let not your feeble little minds be troubled with that, 52™, there’s another episode of Days of Our Lives on. Don’t miss it!

    But the Magic Communist needs that money to give to ACORN.

    For more fraudulent voters.

    One must have priorities.

    I don’t recall, ever, ANY President who did a 10 percent plus reduction in Defense at a time where we’re fighting a war which had no end in sight.

    I guess Obambi already knows how to say ‘Pass the KY jelly’ in Farsi, Chinese and Russian.

    I mentioned this last night on another thread but it was off topic :em02:

    Has anyone told our douchebag in chief that the first responsibility of government is to protect it’s citizens, and that doing a cut that big, let alone any cuts, during a time of war is a galactically stupid idea? Not only because of reduce defense capabilities, but also from the soldiers who now will, in all likelihood, have to leave the military, thereby adding to the unemployment rolls?

    I think our DIC (again, douchebag in chief) is hoping he’ll get tens of thousands of new recruits for his CNSF. Hate to tell you, DIC, but they aren’t going to be too happy with you over this latest slight. All you’re doing is adding to the ranks of those who will oppose you.

    (With apologies to douchebags out there .. no offense intended)

    So, a bunch of civilian overseers have informed B.O. that the current Defense Department budget is “not sustainable” and out comes the heavy hammer.

    At the risk of sounding way too simplistic and with full knowledge it might mean that some deserving folk would be deprived of free rubbers and maybe ACORN won’t get the full $4.1 billion to activate neighborhoods, is it possible, somehow, that maybe some of that pork included in the “economic stimulus plan” could be redirected to the DOD since….

    Such cuts would affect the New England economy. General Dynamics builds warships and submarines in Maine and Connecticut, while Raytheon, Massachusetts’ largest employer, is involved in numerous weapons programs from ships to missile defenses and satellites.

    Sad, indeed, but here we are. If senior officers did what they should, they would be upholding their Oaths to the Law of the Land. All enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC.

    We are, or are supposed to be, a nation of laws not of men. We do not proffer Sacred Oaths to human personalities. We also teach our service members that they are under no constraint to obey unlawful orders. Indeed, they are to oppose and refuse them. I expect that, insofar as obedience to the Oath and the security of the country are concerned, they will be getting quite a few treasonous and unlawful orders. Soon.

    DarthBane says:

    Anyone who watched what Clinton did in the early 1990’s saw this coming a mile away. No wait, THREE miles away.

    When Democrats are in charge Government will always get bigger while at the SAME TIME the military shrinks in size.

    That means jobs going for the defense of the nation are reduced while jobs created for the federal bureaucracy increase.

    At least it’s become more apparent than ever that the ‘600,000 new jobs’ that Obama plans to create won’t be in the military or the defense industry.

    What a relief! 😛

    Unlike private sector jobs, Government jobs HAVE NO COMPETITION. NO MATTER HOW INCOMPETENTLY, OR INEFFECIENTLY GOVERNMENT WORKERS PERFORM THEIR DUTIES, THE AMOUNT OF MONEY AVAILABLE TO PAY THEM WILL NEVER SHRINK.

    See, Government jobs are paid for with TAX PAYER DOLLARS.

    In the private sector, jobs increase and decrease in alignment with the forces of a free market.

    If I’m running a company in the private sector, I HAVE COMPETITORS. I am in COMPETITION for the public’s dollars for that particular service.

    If I do a GREAT JOB and expand my customer base and make more money, I can hire more workers and expand my business.

    If I do a LOUSY JOB, I end up with fewer customers, I make less money and I have to cut costs, let some people go, and reduce.

    That’s not how it works if I’m in the government. Whether I do a good job or a lousy job, that same amount of money is coming in next year from the federal taxpayer funds regardless.

    I have no incentive to get better, become more efficient, or improve my services. I get the money, no matter what. Because I’m the government. I HAVE no competition. There IS no market that I have to respond to.

    I can even provide my services in an incompetent an inefficient manner for years, and over those years the money given to me will actually INCREASE in line with the expansion of the Federal Budget.

    Another aspect of this to remember is that if you are someone in the private sector who cannot perform your job quickly, efficiently and competently, you will be FIRED.

    Have you ever taken a look at all the rules and regulations and litigation that is involved in firing a member of a government bureaucracy?

    Just one example: the rules and regulations regarding the firing of a public school teacher in the state of New York is bigger than most metropolitan area phone books. The department of education in New York literally CANNOT fire incompetent teachers. It costs too much. They actually have rooms where teachers are sent to play cards and nap all day rather than teach because they can’t trust these teachers to do their jobs in the classrooms, yet firing them would be prohibitively expensive. It’s actually cheaper to send them to a rubber room for 6 hours a day and pay them their salary.

    Insane? Yes.

    Typical? I’m afraid so.

    Government will never shrink until government workers are held to the same standards of excellence as the workers in the private sector.

    The pool of money available to spend on government jobs will NEVER decrease. No matter how lousy the government is at what it does.

    And this fact becomes only more galling as we have to watch over the next few years as Obama & Co. reduce our military and expand the federal bureaucracy.

    In the military as least if you do an incompetent job they demote you or discharge you.

    Obama’s going to add hundreds of thousands of new jobs to the bureaucracy that are going to be essentially permanent because bureaucratic jobs will never disappear – why would they? Lack of money? Market forces? They are immune from such things.

    Let’s see…

    We are fighting two wars…are at sword’s point (or nearly so) with Iran, and North Korea. And he wants to cut defense sepending, the high technology of which is what helps keep our casualty rates down and makes it damn near impossible for our enemies to surprise us. In return, he is generating a 850 billion dollar plus bailout program, which includes money for the NEA, teaching about STDs, and God knows how many other pork programs. Pandering to the left, perhaps??
    This may be the best thing to happen to the Republican party. I am seeing a one term president and a meltdown from infighting in the Democratic party. But if that’s gonna happen, the Republicans need to clean up they’re act and start running LEADERSHIP canidates with decent platforms, instead of trying to appeal to the lowest common denominator.
