Ask ye not for what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do to pump more of your hard-earned money into the federal kitty so it can circle the bowl.

With apologies to the late John F. Kennedy.

If you follow news at all, you know there has been a lot of back and forth the past few years years on too big to fail, bailouts, needs more money, blah blah.

Part of all of this has been Freddie Mac and Fannie May, government-backed mortgage companies.

Well, after all the federal about that, now Freddie Mac is bellying up to the bar and wanting more money.

Government-controlled mortgage giant Freddie Mac has requested $6 billion in additional aid after posting a wider loss in the third quarter.

Freddie Mac said Thursday that it lost $6 billion in the July-September quarter. That compares with a loss of $4.1 billion, in the same quarter of 2010.

This quarter's $6 billion request from taxpayers is the largest since April 2010.

Freddie's losses are increasing mainly for two reasons: Many homeowners are paying less interest because they are able to refinance at lower mortgage rates. And failing and bankrupt mortgage insurers are not paying out as much money when homeowners default.

Taxpayers have spent about $169 billion to rescue Fannie and Freddie, the most expensive bailout of the 2008 financial crisis. The government estimates it could cost up to $51 billion more to support the companies through 2014.

Just when you thought the government could not ask you for more, they do. And will always because they run the federal show like a crap game in the back ally.

This has to stop. But won't until people are fed up enough to demand it.

That's my point if view, what's yours?

Like a defeated Liberal all you can do when the argument is lost is to attack. You would have all sane Conservative people of the MIND go visit your Government paid doctors to dwell in the Zombie existence of EMOTION with a Liberal Lobotomy, when they could continue to have "A Bottle in front of me." by remaining cognitively functional, ignoring the seduction of socialist entitlement that leaves us all longing to get drunk and forget we EVER flirted or got politically into bed with any of you.

Big Danny, the doctor will see you now.

You Liberal children in adult bodies who would live off other people's efforts in your world of entitlement do not need to go to war to destroy yourselves. The laws of God and nature are designed to cull you out and time is not on your side. Strong people form governments to do collectively that which they can't do individually ,,,LIKE FIGHT WARS. Weak people form collectives to do collectively that which they are too weak to do individually, like feed, cloth, house themselves and wipe the Butt

Rivers of blood have been spilled to protect that flag and the freedoms it represents just so fools, and Self-God Secular idiots can have the freedom to make fools of themselves in political discourse who like sheep would follow once again their mindless socialist Judas Goats down the slaughterpen of self-edification of man who is themselves. Mao, Hitler, Stalin, Castro all believed it was them from whom our rights and freedoms flowed and ended up in the ash heap like our current President.

What you call YOUR America in your distorted brain of Liberal insanity has nothing in common with the true founding principles of our Christian based Constitution which understands that it is from our Creator from whom we receive our rights and freedoms and from whom our blesssing flow. This is why you Libs must drive him from the schools, our government and our political discourse before you can divide and conquer America with your socialist hidden agenda.

Unfortunately for you anarchists who would disrupt society with your childish sit ins and maypole dances there are still plenty of American patriot Christian warriors for truth in whose hearts still beat the call to freedom and will stand between you and your agenda of anarchy and checkmate your every move. We are here, we are near, we are not queer, and we have no fear.

What a fool you are, in attempting to go against the laws of nature and contrive to dishonestly live as a socialist off the blood and sweat equity of those who create their own through honest labor. You have NO idea of the violence that will hit the American streets when the basic rights to personal property and American success are threaten. It will be your weak sister socialist redistributors of other strong people's wealth whose will be defeated in the Alinsky style street battles they pursue

The only people fed up with “Fannie Mae I” was the Bush administration who warned early of the economic bubble that would occur, then bust when the failed socialist experimenters of human outcomes began to force banks to lend to people of the beehive collective entitlement mentality who formed one more socialist enabled collective voting block to threaten banks with anti-discrimination suits for those who refused to place mortgages with the walking liberal brain dead .

You fear the TEA Party because we are on to you and have organized the thinking majority to call the fools out as to what you are; To quote Hillary; "True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within. Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties....” Hello Community organizers!

This is AMERICA, not some socialist emasculated Europe, and there are still Americans alive and armed with both truth and their second ammendment rights who will defend those rights. We have met the enemy and it is you and people like you who refuse to admit that sooner or later you run out of other people's money who sooner or later strike back in righteous anger first at the polls and later in the streets if need be. Have you learned the bullet dance version of dancing with the Stars?

Tell it to Obama, Peolsi and Reid when they go down in November 2012. Let them go back to their socialist books and re-examine their Fabian ways and go back to their tactics of subversion like Socialist Fabius Maximus who like your cowardly Wall Street sit-in Love Children was too weak to attack Hannibal head on like a real warrior but could only nip at his heels and try the slow boiling frog in the pot attack which Obama foolishly abandoned to his own socialist peril. Fabian lost out to Scipio

You call yourself a Fabian Socialist and yet know nothing of history. It was the cowardly Fabius Maximus who persuaded the Roman Senate to abandon the proactive ideas of Publius Cornelius Scipio who boldly proposed attacking Carthage, the source of Hannibal’s power to rid Rome of the invading threat. Once the Senate was won over he attacked Carthage and the illegal alien invaders went home. Once we win over our Senate in 2012, there will be a similar return of our own American invading hordes.

Only a moron would believe that a two dimensional Socialist being who dwells only in the immediate gratification of his/her mind and body, could out smart, out think or outperform a Three dimensional triple threat of body, mind and SPIRIT of a Christian of the warrior class. People of the infinite mind always defeat the finite secular Liberal Self-Gods in fair individual competition. That's why Lib losers have to join Socialist collectives to gang up and rob from those who in produce in honesty.

It was Einstein who defined your Liberal Insanity of doing and expectorating the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. He was wise enough to flee the National SOCIALIST German worker’s Party ( NAZI ) before all hell broke loose. It looks like many of the Fabian branch of Socialism followed him over after the war.

Einstein proved; E-Mc2
or,,,the energy which a Liberal can steal your money = the Mass of theft times the speed of LightSquared.
The Lightsquared Company is the new Liberal progressive Democrat scandal about to emerge whereby the Lib Obamanites are sponsoring the new 4G open wireless broadband that will interfere and overpower our current military GPS abilities to smoke guys like Bin Laden. This is what happens when your President goes to school at the Mosque during his formative Indonesia life

You can thank Backdoor Barney Frank and the Democrat Socialist experiment of "Everyone is entitled to own a home backed by the U.S. taxpayer." His Brokeback Mountain incestuous redistribution of Federal funds to cover this failed Social experiment broke the back of the banks, the mortgage investment companies, and broke the backs of the homeowners and American Tax Payer. Next time do NOT listen to gay Congessmen when they ask " Fannie Mae I?" It will be your Fannie that gets put in jeopardy.

..and to think, they let people like this vote.

Ther very problem that caused you Liberal wealth redistributors to gain power is that people like me who can raise 6 kids without taking ANY kind of government handout were too busy working and struggling in dignity to support their wifes, husbands, and children in honest labor to, investigate and go out and vote against your socialist collectives of unemployed, child aborting, income thieves who gathered together in darkness to make Social war against the children of light. We Voters have awoke

6 kids and Wives? Sounds like you were doing more than working. Disgusting you bedhoppers having all those children and wiFes. Think of the burden the state had educating all those children because you couldn't keep your redistribution in check. Look at you now, insane, on the edge of meltdown, leaving our state's education fund sucked dry with all those children; and too stupid to realize your immorality caused the problem. I wonder what you owe the taxpayers for educating all those children.

Then you figure-in all those divorces and what that cost the courts in both time and money. The added cost of admin. to shuffel the paperwork of your child support payments, not including the social services handed to those poor women you left on the street so that you could crawl back into another's boudoir. Then you have the brazen nerve to proclaim you've paid you way, pathetic is what you are. You should be arrested and sent to a work camp paying back what you have stolen from the taxpayers
