    Obama before he cuts the deficit is first going to spend in 100 days more than George Bush spent in 8 years, he is going to increase the deficit 2000%, than cut it in half to a level four times the level it is today, thus Obama has cut it in half. Brilliant.

    Media Matters - On Grant's radio show, Coulter suggests Obama's "civilian national security force" will lead to "a lot more Waco raids"

    The following is Obamas exact words, I heard him say it, its everywhere, check out mediamatters.org
    Thats where I dug this up.
    So if we take Obama at his word he will need to add the equivalent amount of funding for AmeriCorp that is spent on the military, so another, being conservate 533 billion dollars. Got to have a lot of cutting to offset this figure.

    That is just the budget for year to year, now Obama has to make up for lost time, the year to year budget will not bring AmeriCorp up to strength with the military so Obama will intially have to spend about 12.3 trillion dollars, considering all the assets of the military, that is where the strength is.

    So now we can see how dangerous Obama is, a force as strong as the military, meaning able to destryo the military. I am getting off track here, I best slow down before the brown shirts kick in my door.

    Why not pay every department head a ten percent bonus for every dollar they come in under budget? Have these departments run like businesses rather than the bureacracy that they are.
