When You Are Broke, Why Keep On Spending?

The question is, why fund countries that don't need it or hate your guts? Another question is why keep on funding the useless UN? Here is a rant worth listening to:



Will our next budget be a Conservative budget? If the US cuts international funding is it justified? Canada shifted international aid and lost it's seat on the security council. What happens to Egypt or Haiti if the US withdraws it's funding? Do those countries grow up, and take responsibility for their own people? When you are broke, you can't keep on spending, every individual understands that, why don't governments?

Also check out his excellent rant about those squiggly mercury filled light bulbs.



Government, getting too big for it's own britches!

Ted Poe, not the brightest bulb, "squiggly mercury filled" or otherwise.

Frances, if you ever listen to Ann Coulter, you would know that we also fought in Viet Nam!

You're absolutely correct SQ. 'We' did fight in Viet Nam. Aside from a handful of Canadian military observers (just like we had military observers recently in Iraq), hundreds, if not thousands of Canadians served in Viet Nam. Of course they weren't officially under the Canadian flag, but were volunteers. Many of them natives from Ontario and Quebec and proved themselves as excellent marksmen.

Ann Coulter only erred when she said she thought that Canada had 'sent' troops to Viet Nam. She was only half wrong, but nice attempt SQ, your drive-by smears only reinforce you as a pathetic pipsqueak with nothing to offer except ad hominem and pissy whining.
