“Sorry, but the DoD is loaded with fat and wastes money with the best of them. They need to get their haircut like everyone else. (Other agencies need limbs removed or to be extinguished totally, but the DoD can do with a significant haircut.)

We’re broke. We can’t afford this crap anymore. Get out of Afghanistan, get out of Europe, get out of Japan. Bring our people home, and let the rest of the world start paying their share of the load.”

I totally agree with you. And we don’t need $8,000 hammers.

Nice. Repeating outright lies and exaggerations from the main stream media now?

I have a better option.

Moderate reform to "the Big 3" - Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid to preserve the programs and stop our fiscal insanity. Stop ObamaCare (wait until that kicks in). And scale back all "giveaway" welfare programs such as Secion 8, TANF, and Food Stamps by 5% a year for next three years.

We are bleeding as a nation because of entitlements, not defense spending.
