I would create an educational trust fund for guys self named named Gumby. It'll cost that, to get those guys to think straight again.

I believe it's worth the cost.........................:)

Oh, you haven't read NDAA 2012?

Much more than a paltry 300 million has been allocated just for that purpose and even much more already spent prior, via various interesting bits of legislation signed by your corrupt Demoncraps as well as the other side of your beloved bi-party diversion.

I read enough and commented on it several times.

You're correct though, it may take more than $300M to educate you.

That's one "wrong wing" extremist look at it.

One that ignores the plutocracy of it all.

One that ignores the military industrial complex we have been for some time now.

One that has no sense of history, and a shallow analytical view.

You must enjoy that kind of thing.

Find the most honest, knowledgeable, and fair minded people and support their bids for Congress. They must not receive any support from any corporation, or special interest group, only the people they represent. They must be independent of any party. Any corruption will immediately disqualify them. $300 mil is a tiny amount in a $15 trillion economy, so by spreading the money on few dozen, they will amplify the message for the just and honest people of the nation and beyond.

Good answer.

Who wants a congress, or POTUS, that has to be put in office with money, and LOTS of it?

I can certainly see good cause for the people to demand that candidates directly buy the votes of voters and skip over them handing all the outrageous jack to big corporate media and other klepto's.

They are for sale so why not the people?

Why not even double, or triple deal on them as well?

Actually $300 million divided among the 468 senators and representatives who run every two years is less than a million each. It's s also just $2 from every working person. If we concentrate this money among 10% of the honest candidates it will purify Congress like salt. The people have enormous power just with $2 a piece. Can the people be bought by Congress? Only if they are also corrupt. That is the nature of man and because of that we find the world in turmoil.

Most of the individuals in the US who earn this much send more than 90% of it to Israel where the next Super Power is to emerge in the coming decades.

This money is being invested all over the world (like Hungary, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, etc.) for the direct benefit of Israel. Israel will start its glorious future extending from the Nile to the Euphrates, housing 70 million Jews who will come from every corner of the world. The Arabs will be crushed by externally-initiated civil wars first, then by Israeli phosphorous bombs and will flee this newborn Super Power land clearing the way for the God Chosen.

This is the Zionist plan.

Humanity (Goyim) slavery in the making.

How awful.

The Shiiaa of Iran and Iraq want the same strip of land to extend their entirely different form of Islam. This is the reason for the conflict. Israel cannot get bigger if the Shiiaa should possess WMDs.

I would give it back to the tax payers that the government stole it from.

It would be easy to do by taking 10K and change (part salary and part benefits) from all federal employees who are over-compensated.
