    have bought into all of the Federal Departments?
    Have they really helped? Or is it just costing us all way to damn much money.
    The FAA is suppose to be for our safety.
    A 300.00 round air trip ticket costs each and everyone of us who fly 60.00 to fund that agency. Yes 60.00 dollars of that 300.00 dollar ticket goes to the Feds.
    The EPA costs us all in our water, electricity and natural gas.
    The Department of Education has done nothing but add money and has not done a thing to improve our children's education.
    Why do so many of us think that these Departments really improve things when all it does is cost us way to much damn money and is the very cause of our Employer's unable to make more money so that they can expand and hire more employees? Over regulation has done great harm to all of our businesses. It has gone way to far and over the top.
    We need to get rid of a lot of these departments.
    We all need to look at things differently.
    Congress should be making these laws and not the departments.
    They should pass laws that hold Companies responsible for pollutants for our air, water and ground.
    If congress passed a bill that would fine them a very stiff fine like millions or billions of dollars, depending of how large or small the company is and threaten to shut them down or put them out of business if they are caught polluting.
    Why can't people see that these departments are unconstitutional? Especially when they start making the laws instead of congress.
    Do any of you who are for big government see how this costs us all?
    If congress did their duty and passed the laws instead of the Departments, we would all be able to afford things.
    Because of the EPA, it makes it too expensive for the poor to be able to afford their electric bills or gas bills for heating. So then government has to help pay for their bills.
    What kind of madness is this?
    First we pay taxes for the EPA and then we pay taxes to help the poor heat and light their homes. This absolute madness.
    Why do so many buy into it?

    No! I don't hate government. I want it smaller and run more efficiently.
    Why can't you see how we have all been played like a violin? We need this department because of........ we need more taxes because of......
    What part of our large government ,that has become totally unsustainable, are those of you who keep wanting larger and larger government, refusing to see?
    Do you realize that with all of our government programs, it will cost us 211 Trillion dollars in the future outlays?
    Why can't you see this or refuse to get it?

    We get it.
    You are afraid to do for yourself and need mommy government to do everything for you.
    That is why you are not willing to address a vey valid question by Peach.

    On the most part, Americans are commplacent and just assume that government is doing the right thing.

    Yopu would think when it came out that the pentagon was spening 700 on a hammer and 1500 on toilet seats, the people would wake up...or at least our reps would wake up.
    But no....our reps did nothing about it and we voted them in for another term.

    I think this whole debt issue may turn things around.

    We do need an FCC and an FAA and other agencies becuase we, the people, do not have the resources to ensure certain "common items" are taken care of.....

    I think they are lazy and stupid. They are also the one's most likely to take handouts so they don't want to bite the hand the feeds.

    It much easier to give the responsibilty to "the government" and then complain when it gets screwed up. People seem to forget that the government is made up of other humans, many of which are lazy and don't give a damn. They even can make honest mistakes from time to time.

    The government has gotten way too big, too controlling and too self-serving. Time to trim the fat and get rid of about half of all government employees.
