What happens if China calls debt?
I find it strange that the present-day politicians seem to be overly zealous in their pursuit of borrowing money from China to give to a group of people that have accomplished absolutely nothing to the benefit of this country.
As an example, welfare is not available to households with male breadwinners. Visible father figures in these households is prohibited. Eligibility for free housing requires three unaffordable children. Guess what, each public housing unit has at least four. Mother and three children. Since it is obvious the young mother is incapable of taking care of three children by herself, Grandma is hired by the taxpayers with dollars borrowed from China to fill the caretaker spot.
There are still some minimally employable people working to help take care of themselves. But behold the Unaffordable Care Act. Now, taxpayers, with Chinese help, have instigated a new generation of freeloaders so that “working” is a word to be removed from the dictionary and looked upon as discriminatory. Now that others are paying for their health care, they have the time to write a book, paint pictures, think thoughts and produce more children for the producers, with Chinese bucks, to raise.
One of these days the Chinese will want these trillions paid back and you can bet the “unaffordable” won’t pay their percentage of the population’s fair share.
Per a statement on Facebook, why? So they can join the ranks of the Chicago cemetery dwellers and make sure the Democrats stay in power? Could be.

Now not time to cut military
Because of our over $17 trillion debt, NASA, our space agency, has been cut and now we are cutting our military. China and Russia are building up their military and North Korea has to be watched all the time. Iran is still working on the bomb and the terrorists are expanding in Europe and Africa and they are trying to expand into the U.S.
Now is not the time to cut our Armed Forces. I’ve always said that the secretary of defense should be an experienced person with many years in the military.
We now have Chuck Hagel appointed by the President as secretary. Here is a person who was an infantry squad leader, who held the rank of sergeant and was wounded in Vietnam. In other words, he was a foot soldier. After he left the military he went into business and politics. His total military service time was 1967 to 1968. In other words, the defense of the United States and the free world rests in the hands of President Obama with no military experience and Hagel who has almost no military experience. This is scary.
The military and some in Congress feel this is not the time to cut the military if we are to remain a super power. The president got us in this financial mess and he needs to find another way to solve the money problems and leave the military budget alone. Instead, he keeps raising the debt limit and driving us farther in debt.
