This week, President Obama told ABC News that the current national debt, approaching $17 trillion, is “sustainable” and he does not feel the need to try to balance the budget.

Where is Herbert Hoover when we need an economic genius?

Just about every honest economist knows that running up massive debt without an effective strategy to improve the economy is flat out dangerous. If the U.S. dollar collapses, there will be a worldwide depression that will make the recent recession look like an after-party at George Clooney’s house.

In the meantime, I can report the following federal expenditures that the President apparently has no problem overseeing:

– $27 million to the country of Morocco to teach the folks over there how to make pottery. I guess the Moroccan government is not capable of pottery instruction. This con is courtesy of the U.S. Agency for International Development, which now has the nerve to tell us that the pottery project is “not on track to achieve its goals.” Translation, the dollars we’ve sent are likely to have been stolen.

– $1.5 million to the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston to study why many lesbian Americans are overweight. The National Institutes of Health calls the situation “an issue of high public health significance.” Sure. Everybody’s talking about it.

– $947,000 to research a “Mars menu.” What astronauts would eat on the planet Mars if they ever get there. NASA says it will send six volunteers into a barren Hawaiian landscape to eat stuff so it can figure out what tastes good on Mars. I am NOT making this up, with apologies to Dave Barry.

– $325,000 to develop a robot squirrel. The National Science Foundation wants the robots to scare rattlesnakes. The agency also says the robosquirrels will help in “public outreach.” Does anyone know what that means? Rocky? Bulwinkle? …Screen Shot 2013-03-15 at 1.06.15 PM

    I’m 65…I drink Budweiser…I have a slight beer-belly…can I get a grant to find out why???

    • I happen to enjoy an occasional Stella Artois beer, can I get a grant to study the differences between a domestic , and , an imported “beer belly” , and the health relationship of beer drinking Americans.???

    • Politically Incorrect

      I think $350,000 per year would be OK to study at what age does the belly really starts to expand from 65 on. I think this should be a 10 year study. Plus you will have to drink Bud Light from the age of 70 to 75 to see and measure those effects to get proper results.
      I’ll set up a team and apply for a for $2.3 million per year grant to study and evaluate this blind study, and find 2 other participants the same age that would undergo this rigorous commitment for pure research purposes. The findings will be submitted to be published in the National Institue of Health under Senior Health and Weight Gain..

    Need a grant to get back into farming. Think maybe 2 million would do the trick. That farm equipment,seed, fuel and all of the rest of trhe requiremnets. Really 5million would be better. While we are at it hook Doc Ryder up with a million to do his study on the effects of a beer belly on humans.

    Absolutely correct: we are so sorely in need of Herbert Hoover! Before anyone counters with the oft-repeated Roosevelt-era anti-Hoover propaganda that has become practically enshrined in academia and taught as ‘truth’ in public schools please first do a bit of research. Contrary to political myth Hoover was a very astute student of economics … he was just a lousy politician.

    • Demonhunter13

      The only anti-Hoover propaganda from the left is that Hoover followed conservative economic policies. He did nothing of the kind. He increased government spending and ran big deficits. That is why his economic policies failed, and there was no recovery.

      FDR ran as a conservative and promised to reduce spending and deficits. Then after the election followed the same disastrous policies. It wasn’t until the end of the war when government reduced spending that the economy recovered.

      That reminds me vaguely of some modern president, something about his predecessor being unpatriotic for deficit spending and he was going to cut the deficit in half in his first term. What’s his name? Barry something, O something?

        You are right.

    Im 23, I cant pay my bills, and I dont wanna work, oh wait the liberals have it covered!

  • coastx

    In keeping with the idea that Fabian liberals are motivated primarily by harassment, it is reasonable to assume that virtually any of their anti reason legislation and leadership is directed at doing just this, hence spending a billion dollars resourcing a US flag burning anti American insurgency movement that is threatening to attack the homeland soon as they have swept the middle east off the map and subsequent leveling a death threat at a peaceful country that has no history of a conquest agenda for any European or western occupied territories. Remember Harry Reid flipping off America? no. America, the Fabians have you, you too stupid to address this issue with leadership principled on the DCBR because YOU DON’T HAVE leadership principled in the DCBR. Oops, they did it again!

  • How about inventing some robot mongooses(mongeese?) to get rid of the snakes in DC?

  • FedUpWithLibtards

    We need to stop complaining about Obama and the other Libtards. Action is needed. If this country is to succeed, radical changes are needed now.

    And of course those squirrels wouldn’t be outfitted with cameras and listening devices or haulback capability using the tail as an antenna. Never, our government wouldn’t do that.

  • TexasOlTimer

    Herbert Hoover wasn’t an economic genius – quite the contrary. He was the Secretary of the Treasury under President Harding. With the end of WWI we were in a depression. Warren Harding was voted into office in 1920 and when he put in place his economic plan we came out of it rather rapidly. He was in disagreement with Hoover on what to do – in fact, he did quite the opposite of what Hoover wanted. While you may not remember reading about the depression of 1920-21, you probably do know about the ‘Roaring ’20s.’

    Hoover was elected President in 1928 and was able to put in place his economic plans in 1929 which resulted in the beginning of the depression. He lost the next election – the people wanted no more of those Republican ideas! – and FDR was elected who only continued what Hoover was doing at a more rapid pace, resulting in more socialistic-type ideas and deepening the depression while other countries in Europe were coming out of it.

    This country deserves what is going to happen.We have taken the greatest country in history and dumped it into the toilet of racism.! If something isnt done to rid us of the filth in Washington the USA is doomed.The main problems we face are ignorance and apathy.All the info we get is strained thru a corrupt anti American media.The Gov.,starting at the top has to be removed and replaced with leaders that are responsible and honest.!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mean Gene
