    any suggestions for who might be a real president?

    No. What The Messiah found were token nicks but his has no intention of trimming the moustache, let alone shaving all of Grizzly Adams beard.

    Grizzly Adams needs to be clean shaven, with maybe some little sideburns to be the Federal Government.

    (are you old enough to remember Grizzly Adams?)

    For that matter, Ben needs to be shaved, too.

    Govt could cut spending to post Korea/pre Vietnam levels, or basically the late 50's and early 60's budgets without paying for a war. Adjust it for inflation, then live by it for a year, just to see if we can.
    Freeways in the Phoenix area are well decorated and landscaped, most of which is unnecessary. Most of our libraries get very little use, except for the room where all the computers are.
    A lot of businesses that are dependent on govt contracts would fail, and IMO that is a good thing. If they are not defense related, they are probably pork.
    Whenever I drive out to Luke AFB I notice more and more construction that is not directly related to keeping the jets in the air.
    Since we moved there in 85, a lot of the housing was upgraded, then later demolished and rebuilt. The new housing is very nice, while the old housing was at the least adequate. They tore down better housing than I grew up in, and which is still standing. I googled all my old addresses and they are still standing, houses that were old when I lived there over 40 years ago. I am all for taking care of the troops, but a lot of the money the military spends is just plain wasted. The number of streetlights per block at my civilian address is a lot lower than the ones on base. The last thing I noticed a few weeks ago is an earth berm against a block fence that appears to be decorative only. I suppose some fancy shrubs will be planted there soon.
    And guess how many times the navy has changed its uniform in the last 40 years?....pretty much an obvious waste of resources.
    It seems that the purpose of taxing us has become to support businesses more than anything else, but that makes sense. It is the business world that owns the politicians...
