Fox Nation (excerpts):  President Obama has already permanently increased welfare spending by nearly a third.  This year, the government will spend more than $900 billion on means-tested aid, providing cash, food, housing, medical care and social services to poor and low-income persons (this figure does not include Social Security, Medicare or unemployment insurance).  This welfare spending comes to around $9,000 for each person in the lowest-income third of the population, and the new "poverty" measure is propaganda to raise the figure further.

Washington - President Barack Obama on Thursday unveiled a new defense strategy that will shrink the county's armed forces at a time of tight budgets, but pledged to maintain US military superiority in the world.  "Our military will be leaner, but the world must know - the United States is going to maintain our military superiority with armed forces that are agile, flexible and ready for the full range of contingencies and threats," Obama told a news briefing at the Pentagon.  Emphasizing the Asia-Pacific region, where there is growing US rivalry with an increasingly assertive China, Obama cautioned the military would remain vigilant in the Middle East.  

Commentary:  When you round up cattle and herd them, you feed them, don't you?  Just another step into Socialist-Marxist President Obama's welfare state.  Worry about the military?  Why should he, when his objective is to hand over our sovereignty to the United Nations anyway; and he, no doubt, would lean more heavily on NATO forces in a push-shove situation, the third-world dictatorial-minded, rouge president that he is would have to.  We should all be for helping the poor and providing benefits to the down and out.  At the rate he is going with his Socialist agenda, President Obama seems to want to get us all on the welfare roles.  Don't believe you are going to receive something for nothing.  This has to happen before the government can begin seizing property, which may be in the distance, but we are headed there.  "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people" Proverbs 14:34.  Even God isn't a dictator; He allows His creation to choose.
