This is for the ABO crowd. You know who you are.Posted Sunday, April 22, 2012, at 7:38 AM
I was reading news articles this morning and came across this. I wonder if these issues have been brought up by YOUR media. Mitt Romney's plan to reduce Federal spending includes cuts to border security, food inspection, veterans pensions, and other programs. Oh, I forgot to mention the FBI and National Forests. Ah, but there is hope, he wants to increase Military spending even more than the Conservative Hawks want to spend. He wants to reduce the budget to percentage wise to what it was under GWB, which resulted in massive borrowing. He speaks not a word about how to eliminate deficit spending, just how to reduce it, maybe? Read the whole article and see whose backs all his cuts fall on in order to fund his increased Military spending.
Is this your vision for America?

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
