Building a Better America By Destroying the Rest of the World

The $1.1 trillion dollar military budget from the House has been released and it's ostensibly the national budget but it's definitely a military budget since there's nothing but military spending plus tax giveaways for the rich in it.  Not surprisingly, you won't get anything and it will be somewhere short of miraculous if you break even with Social Security and MEDICARE.  (RT:  House GOP unveils $1.1tn budget with major cuts, tax reforms & increased defense spending)

Whether this is the most vicious budget ever released by Washington is something which requires validation through review with Cadillac Man although it's almost certainly the worst rape of the people by the so-called Defense Department ever.  There's a whole pile of money in this for the Pentagon but there's nothing in it for Americans.

Ed:  no-one is more American than those in the Pentagon!

Bullshit ... they're all Redcoats and they owe their allegiance to the bank and the king, definitely not to you.  Iwo Jima was over seventy years ago and those soldiers are long gone so we got this lot instead and they live like they're from the House of Lords.

Note:  this is not the final budget but the first insulting pass at one.  If you're not gathering up the tar and feathers, you might want to get cracking.

Just in case you still think there's any legitimacy to military spending, we have this gem.  (RT:   US military spends $130K a month to rent space in Trump Tower)

Since Trump is not living in Trump Tower, what do you suppose those generals will be doing with a swanky penthouse in Manhattan.  Maybe it's war planning, right?
