What’s a trillion?
The corruption of our language has muddied our thinking. The media uses a phrase like “non-lethal support” to mean no armed soldiers. Liberal Congressmen claim Republicans want to “strip” government spending. Let’s analyze the latter accusation. 110 billion a year over 10 years will equal about 1 trillion dollars that the Republicans want to cut or save or reduce or eliminate from the budget. Can we afford that? YES. Pres. Obama now spends approximately 1 trillion a YEAR. 110 billion (1/10 of a trillion) represents a small cut not an effort to STRIP government spending. But who knows this? Not the public which depends upon smoke and mirrors from the Obama media. By the way, I have the solution to our education problem, beginning with pre-school. Enroll each child into a convent for a year. This will make or break the soul of youth for the good, not for the evil intent of relativism and liberal indoctrination pervasive in our education system. The problem? Not enough convents with old, left-over nuns.
