just do it....the military is just as bloated as the rest of the federal govt....
I say cut the unconstitutional crap and keep the Constitutional stuff like defense.
I’l be more inclined to agree with you when we hear that shrimp treadmill program has finally gotten the axe.
“just do it....the military is just as bloated as the rest of the federal govt....”
No doubt the military is bloated. However, this is NOT getting rid of bloat...it is curtailing training to maintain military readiness. A military that does not train is a military unable to do its job when necessary.
I AM NOT advocating caving in to Obama to save military readiness. However, we need not be naive about what some of this process will produce...a military weak and leaving us vulnerable to attack.
Don’t you know that pointing out how bloated and wasteful the military is on FR is a capital crime? Prepare for lectures on how “out-moded” our aircraft carriers are and how unprepared we are for a massive invasion by Canada or something, and for these reasons and more we should never question military spending.
Teacher’s unions or people protecting their defense jobs—I can hardly tell a difference, the methods and arguments are all the same.
And what is the per plane cost of the F35 now? The F35 project is like NASAs’ Webb space telescope. “The telescope that ate astronomy.” Well the F35 is the (poorly designed) fighter that ate the air force. Shutting down production of the twin engine world class F22 so as to fund the piss poor single engine F35 was a brilliant idea. /s.
And you probably won't be thinking it was bloated when the nuclear missiles start falling because the military was weakened to a point where it wasn't able to function.
