We are being force fed a crap filled pork sandwich


h/t to Yid with lid and All American Blogger for this list of PORK in the road to socialism bill or crap sandwich as Michelle Malkin calls it. This turkey should be scrapped and totally forgotten.

Apparently no one in the Gov. learned the lessons of the great depression because they are repeating the exact same mistakes.  Best thing thing the imperial federal government can do is NOTHING.

But that’s not really what it’s about is it? It’s about running us so far down the road to socialism & communism that we’ll never be able to pull out of it. I understood that’s who Obama was from the beginning, too bad enough of the glassy eyed Obmaton worshippers didn’t.
