Sometimes when they do that they get more than they "hoped for".
A case in point is the establishment of a commission that President Obama set up by appointing Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson to look at the issue of debt and deficits, hoping to quieten down the furor a bit; but instead of toning down the debate, those two bi-partisan co-chairs of the commission said they found the internal source of the destruction of the nation:
The co-chairmen of President Obama's debt and deficit commission offered an ominous assessment of the nation's fiscal future here Sunday, calling current budgetary trends a cancer "that will destroy the country from within" unless checked by tough action in Washington.(Washington Post, emphasis added). The intellectual warmongers who have been trained in the war colleges, who run MOMCOM, the military oil media complex, are setting the government up to do further damage to the nation while war and oil addiction are strengthened.
MOMCOM is the biggest fiscal spender, spending more money on the U.S. military than all the rest of the nations of the world combined spend on their military.
MOMCOM is destroying the nation in order to save it again, as she-it has been doing for ages it seems.
Since MOMCOM controls the government, plans are already being established to cut social security, health care, and other social programs set up for what the constitution calls "the public welfare".
More war, more military, more oil, is the menu for MOMCOM, while fewer jobs, less health care, fewer homes, and loss of retirement funds and social security is slated for the people.
