Help Me Understand

First let me say I haven't been posting much lately for a couple of reasons. The foremost reason being that I have felt that any post not pointing out how the current Administration and Congress are raping our Country, economy, and Constitution would be the equivalent of fiddling while Rome burns. (Unfortunately, this is nothing new or unique to this administration.)The other reason, only slightly less important than the first is that everytime I talk, write or think about the above situation it makes me too angry to think straight. The result of all of this is that I just can't write at all.

That being said, I can't sit quietly on this anymore.

Why is it that we can spend damned near a trillion dollars bailing out banks and automotive manufacturers who have so badly mismanaged themselves that there was "no other choice" but to bail them out because they are "too big to fail" because it would put too many people out of work...


I was about to fire up a rant...gotta stop...take a second.

Why would our government, who only wants us all to have jobs, pass a bill that will effectively put 100,000 people out of work AND severly weaken this country's ability to defend itself by cutting all production of the F-22. All in the name of saving 1.75 billion dollars. I know that sounds like a lot...but it was actually less than .2% (that's 2/10 of a percent) of the total cost of 680 billion dollars in the defense spending bill.

I just can't get my head around the logic behind this...

Here's the article from the AP that caused the blood to start shooting out of my eyes.

If you can reason through this, let me know. I need to go lie down.
