A-Z Index of U.S. Government Departments and Agencies
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says Republican-led efforts to rein in government spending are pointless because there is nothing left to cut in the almost $4 trillion-a-year federal budget.
The cupboard is bare. Theres no more cuts to make. Its really important that people understand that, Mrs. Pelosi, California Democrat, said in an interview broadcast Sunday on CNNs State of the Union.
September 22, 2013
Sounds to me like there is $4 Trillion to cut from somewhere.
Show me a nation’s leaders and I will show you it’s future.
We are in deep doo-doo.
We could start by cutting Pelosi’s microphone feed. Nothing worth listening to ever comes out of that.
After that, we could completely cut funding to every alphabet agency in existence, starting with the Bureau of Land Management and immediately following up with the Department of Homeland Security. All their cool, expensive toys could be redirected to use by the Army.
Intentional deception for political gain should be punished by deportation and stripping of citizenship.
Prolly not. They just keep adding new ones with catchy names that sound like they’ll actually do something or be beneficial to somebody. Yeah, themselves.
Maybe in your bird-brain.
I offer the following, just for a start:
BLM - Disband
EPA - Diaband
BATF&E - drastically reduce size
DoE(education) - disband
Give me 10 minutes and I'll come up with a dozen more...
1. Postal Service
2. Patent Office
3. Bureau of Engraving
6. Air Force
Am I missing anything?
ping for later
The African Development Foundation provides grants to community groups and small enterprises that benefit under-served and marginalized groups in Africa.
There are HUNDREDS of agencies like these that produce ABSOLUTELY nothing and spend MILLIONS upon MILLIONS just so they can say they "care"
Doe,NEA,.... ohh wait, my doorbell is ringing. I’m back. FDA, FHA, DOA...damn doorbell.
Pelosi should be FIRED with every stinking ‘Rat and RINO.
Amen. Let the states set up their own independent bureaus. Abuses will still occur, but not on the level of the Feds.
Maybe the Migratory Bird Conservation Commission?
Innovation and Improvement Office?
We could shut down 90% at least
Remember the word sinecure? Much used in English history and novels, it means a title paying money with absolutely no duties.
Well, we now have 535 Congresscritters, most of whom occupy sinecures. Then we have all their sycophants looking for a tit.
Look at these agencies, not as wasteful tax entities who do more harm than good (which thy are and do); rather, see them as cash cows with many tits.
Disgusting mental image, isn't it?--And SanFranNan is a milk maid and tit distributer for the cows.
The single most important agency to abolish along with its enabling legislation is the IRS.
Without the brass knuckle extortion gang the federal government has nothing.
If the federal government needs more then customs duties because we abolished such duties, then the states can pay an annual fee, and they can collect the taxes.
Repealing the 16th and 17th Amendments would be the key to such a system, which would put the federal government back in its place.
And the American Revolution was a rebellion against the English gangster “nobility” who imposed the costs of those sinecures on the populace.
That is what the government has become, as they always do: a self appointed group of extortionists, living off the populace in an oversized protection racket.
No different from Mafia street thugs with brown paper bags collecting “fees” from the shop owners.
I think the Coast Guard could be put into the Navy, and the Border Patrol put into the Army or the Air Force. There might be a seventh branch of the military, but even if there is, its mission isn’t so different from one of the big four. Indeed, are the missions of the big four so different from one another that they need to be separate organizations?
I did not know that word,always learn something on FR.
In other words, to start attacking "our" government, we must first know what -- and WHO -- it is we're attacking.
If people are interested, we can form a bang list or a group to coordinate the activities. What do you say?
I second the motion.
Well, that’s one. Let’s see if we get any other volunteers. If not, we can go it alone.
