    the wars are actually pretty cheap when compared to our entitlements.

    I’m assuming that you have run the numbers on the taxes that would have been paid by the 5500 kia in Afghanistan and Iraq? Then of course we have the diminished earnings of all of the maimed and wounded.

    I let you know when I answered your lame ass post that said “wars are actually pretty cheap when compared to our entitlements. “

    When you cant count up the friends and on your extremities let me know. Da Nang, Quảng Nam.Also spent some not so quality time on the good ship Sanctuary, as well as Camp Lester.

    no because that would be impossible to calculate, though i've seen the sites that try. utterly ridiculous, especially when you consider that we are discussing past budgets, not future revenues.

    compared to the entitlements, the wars are cheap.

    no, you went into a non-sequitor. no one was talking about the cost in measurements of blood.

    So sad, when you see Americans in favor of honoring a debt made to Commies, over those, that are more than likely the offspring of those that were fighting the ChiComs. Don’t get me started on the billions we borrow from the Saudi’s and others that want us dead.
    Now they complain when their Ponzi/Madoff schemes fail, when their socialist engineering fails, and we have debt to Communist Chinese and Saudi's!!! You folks really are a work of perverted art.

    Nobody said anything about not honoring those who paid into the Ponzi/Madoff Scheme, but that idiocy has failed and need be phased out? Or is it just oral feces flying when you folks claim to want to shut down inviable programs? Thought so.

    Just listen to these folks. They create a Ponzi/Madoff scheme, all projections are as accurate as a drunk with a rifle, it and their other bright ideas end up running up our debts through the roof, and then they complain when we have to borrow money to pay for their idiocy? Then they don't want to phase it out like responsible adults would with their own financial problems... No, no, no... they just want the Ponzi/Madoff scheme to keep rolling.

    I wish we could bring back FDR and LBJ and show the damage they wrought. New Deal... Great Society...

    Ok, I’m glad we could at least agree that it is us taxpayers that pay the interest on the money we borrow from China to finance our two and a half wars.

    of course it is. mind you, both of those wars together cost us less than the deficit spending of the last two years alone....

    the non sequitor came from you. when you somehow demanded that because people were wounded in war, obviously the price tag of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are not cheap compared to our rising entitlements. you made an emotional, not a logical argument.

    I will be very surprised if I ever collect any form of social security. I don't expect that it will survive that long before being dismantled by congress.

    well we will see. there are ways to save the entitlements. it's just that our window for doing so is quickly shrinking.
