How come some of it can not be used for wildfires and border? Does not make any sense.

You're doomed if you expect it to make "sense". The short answer is campaign contributors payback (exponentially) and graft. Really is that simple.

It's called quid pro quo. It used to be illegal to bribe a politician now you just contribute to their campaign fund and they pay you back.

Where is my payback? I contributed in last election. Oh wait you have to contribute to the side that steals the election?

Is anybody surprised by the fat in a trillion dollar bill? Heck they have tons sitting there waiting to be picked by those who passed the Covid relief BS. How the hell else are you going to be worth tens of millions while earning 180k per year?

It's all a blatant money laundering scheme, that's why the R's and D's can always agree on stupid spending.

The people of the USA will be alot better off once they realize that NONE of these politicians are for the people.

This is why R's vote for D policy and vise versa. That's why they always flip flop depending on what the majority in the room wants.

A little over 500 people run 350 million peoples lives. We're all in a jail without bars. Although I will agree this jail is much nicer than any other country.

I love my country, its the government I'm afraid of.

And this is why they don't want Trump......both sides. He doesn't play by their rules. My wife and I don't watch news anymore because it's just as loaded with propaganda as the Russian media. Elections? Voting? A farce. A dog and pony show. So, talking about politics.......I feel like a mosquito at a nudist colony. I don't know where to begin. Unfortunately, it will only get worse as time goes on.

You watch this as long as I have and nothing surprises you. Pelosis family ran Baltimore for many years and now she has been in DC representing California for 50 years for example. Biden, came to DC from Delaware at 29 years old never did anything, became vice president, president, and along the way a multi millionaire. + son, brother, brother in law. Yet somehow they keep getting elected. And no matter how many laws they violate they never get charged. Interesting system we have here.

It's key to not get caught up in the here and now. It's not just the USA but the western world as a whole. This whole steam roller is in the UK, Germany, France, EU, Australia, Canada, etc., etc. These country "leaders" KNOW what the score is and they're not going to be left out in the cold. This entire movement gained acceptance once George HW introduced the New World Order. A convention of states or cession is the only route to non violent redemption. As stated, elections/voting are a joke, that horse is out of the barn.

OK, I agree with you. Last time it came around by Abbott asking for support to have a convention of states, I voted against it. Because after watching since I was old enough to vote all I've seen is politicians lying and enriching themselves.
Since the last elections and the blatant voter fraud, what makes anyone thing anything good could come out of giving politicians control to change the constitution?

SCARES the crap out of me...

I'd rater see secession. 50 separate countries with a mutual defense, trade pact, open borders between the 50. Something along those lines, where we could have more control over what our elected do. Yeah I know, it wouldn't work. But at least they would be with-in .223 distance.

The only reason we are not in the same position as Europe, Australia, etc. is because we can freely own fire arms.

That's why they want them so bad.

I have been reading the second amendment including all the papers written by our founding fathers as they were considering it. Lots of options in there about controlling the government when it gets out of control. You all should read it.

That's what they say, right? And the more they say it, the more Americans arm themselves to the teeth.

Everything is a rich mans trick, remember that.

Armed to the teeth. Let's hope the American people are never tricked into turning the guns on each other.

From the looks of it, it would be easy to do with TV propaganda.
