Who Lied About the Attack on 9/11/12?

It is incredible that democrats keep blathering about Romney lying, when we have the shock and disgust of seeing the president and his administration lying to us about the security of Americans. Unbelievable .

Seems one actress with five seconds of screen time in the movie that was blamed for the Benghazi killing of our Ambassador is claiming copyright infringement because she didn't like the end result. 9TH Circuit Court of Appeals agreed, even though they are the most overturned circus in law. At most cut her five seconds out and move on.

This is not supposed to be a forum for attacking each other. It is a forum for suggestions on fixes.

Who let "I'm not a crook" Nixon get away with his crimes? Ford and Nixon should have been prosecuted for subverting justice. The next set in the White House might THINK b4 they follow in his footsteps to prison. As for Social Security, it was making money and interest on taxpayer's input to that fund. Congress "borrowed" from that surplus and squandered it. Congess should be forced to return the funds with interest.

Obama should call Snoden without CIA/FBI oversight and ask him WHY. Give him the freedom friendship medal.

Let's take a look at the incestuous relationship between Obama and the Liberal Media.

McScot asks about a witch hunt. Is Hilary missing again???

I've been camping, and didn't have cell service, so I might be behind. So many scandals to catch up on.

Depends on if you have the intelligence to look into legitimate questions.

Who controlled the consulate and why were there so many changes to the talking points and disagreement between 2 federal agencies? And why did the Obama administration lie about the video for 2 weeks?

Didn't Ike warn out the Military Industrial Complex? Is there any doubt that we now live in a society where fail to comprehend the total influence -- economic, political, even spiritual --of he MIC and that it is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government?

Is there also any doubt that this is not a party issue? All one has to do to understand that is remember the 130th closure.

One good way to cut spending is to reign in the defense contractors.

For an example just read up on the F-35 joint strike fighter. Cost overruns galore.

And to that I'll add that something needs to be done with politicians acting on behalf of companies in local sphere of interest and the government money the politicians get for them.

Frankly there is a lot of waste and pointless funding going on in regards to that subject.

But fixing that issue will be like treating an alcoholic.

The general Welfare clause is the most prodtituted section of the Constitution. The intent of our Founding Fathers is clear to those willing to research the subject, which is what is required to understand the clause as it was written. If you want to know the truth, google Madison veto of public works bill and see how specific he was regarding the general Welfare Clause.

As for spending cuts, I'm a huge fan of Calvon Coolidge. He cut spending nearly in half, lowered the tax rate and avoided a depression that started as bad as the one in 1929. I say cut, cut, cut!!!

Aaron,

I don’t think we can prove that the phrase “welfare” is specific by defining it in non-specific terms like unusual, calamity, enjoyment, peace, prosperity, ordinary, and blessings. Each of those terms means different things to different people and in different contexts.

I suggest we abandon this theoretical line of discussion for the time being. It’s more productive to focus on reducing real spending than to argue over hypothetical spending (or not spending, if you will). So far, I think we’ve agreed on several ways to economize. Got any more?

"Phrases like “promote the general welfare” are ambiguous, not clear."

That's not true. If you study that phase, you will find that the founders were pretty clear in what they meant by the general Welfare clause. First, it's inclusion in Article 1 Section 8 was placed there as a means of explaining why a country that had declared independence a decade earlier partially because of taxes would grant a central government the authority to tax. Read the general Welfare clause and you will see what I mean. The word “for” tells why the government was given the authority to tax.

From there, you have to understand what they meant by welfare. That is best explained in Webster’s 1828 Dictionary.

“Exemption from any unusual evil or calamity; the enjoyment of peace and prosperity, or the ordinary blessings of society and civil government;

While Hamilton and Madison may have disagreed some on the gWC, they did agree that spending had to benefit all citizens.

Besides the fact Tired that Social Security is already a tax and a social program, what taxes do we pay would you consider voluntarily payment? Perhaps there are some excise taxes in that we have the choice in whether or not we purchase a specific product but otherwise, taxes are imposed on each and every one of us, supposedly for the good of all of us.

The fact is, Social Security is nowhere near what it was when FDR forced the Old Age, Survivors and Retirement Fund on us through his court packing bill. It was never meant to be an end all retirement plan for all Americans, it was designed to aid a very limited number of Americans; women and minorities were precluded from receiving payment from the trust fund and the eligibility age was 3 years past the average life expectancy, it’s clear the program wasn’t meant for all.

Besides the plan has be changed hundreds of time so what promise has been made that already hasn’t been broken?
