I cant tell you how pleasing to me it is to see your post. I get so tired of the worn out use/misuse of the propagandist phrase ‘military industrial complex’ by people who have no idea what they are talking about, about what parts of govt are actually constitutional, and how much is wasted on ‘non-discretionary’ welfare spending or extra-constitutional waste.

It’s not just that. A huge chunk of left-wing/Soviet disinformation is now what conservatives erroneously consider to be true. It’s because many claims that were exclusive to far left publications like the Nation and Mother Jones are now routinely peddled in the New York Times and the Washington Post, and objections batted away as conspiracy theories.

I suppose I am one who is guilty of this offense, or so I learned from North Mountain here on FR. I would appreciate knowing what is the proper term for that vast group of people, in government, and in industry, who want to "increase defense spending" without ever defending anything.

I accept your very strong point that defense is constitutional, and certainly the trillions that the government throws around should be wasted on the military before it is wasted on anything else.
