Do you by chance write posts for non-english speaking spammers?

I don't view the military as a waste though. How we use the military is a different story.

Not entirely a waste, but the wasteful spending in the DoD is equal to, or greater than, the rest of the budget. The fact that they're unwilling to touch it is despicable.

Wasteful spending in the DoD is NOT equal to, or greater than the rest of the budget!!

"I have lived through four wars and none of them were caused because America was too strong." (militarily)
Ronald Reagan

What is truly despicable is the annual payment on interest on the national debt.

For that we get nothing more than the permission to borrow more money.

Obama's own secretary of the treasury, tiny Tim Gaither just testified before congress that under the Obama budget our interest payments will soon become unsustainable.

Question; what happens then?? This has been my question for nearly a half century, I have yet to get an answer.

You know so much, maybe you can tell me.

BTW, during those fifty years the left has always proposed cutting defense spending to the bone but if you are any sort of student of history at all you will find that when America became militarily weak, we soon became involved in a war.

AmericanHeritage.com / THE FEDERAL DEBT

Quote:
.......two guiding principles have dominated the financial policy of the Government. One is the balancing of the budget, and the other is the payment of the public debt. Both are in line with the fundamental policy of the government since its beginning.”
--------------------------

In the 139 years encompassing the period from 1792 to 1930, the federal government ran a surplus ninety-three times and a deficit forty-six times. Beginning with 1931, however, we have had a surplus in only eight years and a deficit for the rest (except in 1952, when spending exactly matched revenues).
-----------------------------------

That’s why a 1990 tax on luxury boats and airplanes, which was supposed to raise $16 million, raised $58,000 instead. People simply stopped buying boats and airplanes. Rather than raise revenue, the new tax caused ten thousand layoffs. To use the car analogy again, this time stepping on the gas pedal didn’t make the car speed up; it made the oil pressure drop.

Speaking of ineffective and inefficient:

The Rosett Report Has Anyone Told Ambassador Rice There’s a Crisis In Libya?

Quote:
Where’s Susan Rice, the cabinet rank ambassador
of the free world’s superpower? On the day Hosni
Mubarak stepped down as dictator of Egypt, Feb.
11, she was visiting Oregon to give a talk on “Why
America Needs the United Nations.” This week, as
Libyans escalated their uprising against more than
41 years of Gaddafi’s totalitarian, terror-based reign,
Rice sent her deputy to an emergency Security
Council meeting on Libya on Tuesday, and took
off for a two-day meeting in Cape Town, South
Africa.

What was so urgent about this this meeting in
Cape Town? Did it have anything to do with the
droves of Libyan diplomats, from New York to
Geneva to Cairo, now renouncing the Gaddafi
regime? Did it have anything to do with the
warning of Libya’s deputy ambassador to the
UN that Gaddafi, with his threats of house-to-
house assaults, was launching a genocide
against Libyans who defied him? Did it have
anything to do with mass rebellion roiling North
Africa and the Middle East, and sending tremors
as far as China and North Korea?
What could be more important than the UN global
warming agenda??

Nothing, even though most people know it is
based on fraud and hoax.

Policy Basics: Where Do Our Federal Tax Dollars Go? — Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

The interest makes up 6% and defense and security (while very important) are 20% the same as social security. Education is 3%, alot of bickering going on over 9% of the budget.

Can't remember where I read this at, but you could cut 20% of the DoD budget and we wouldn't be so stressed about cutting much else.

The most alarming category is that interest payments, if we continue on the present path is that they will increase from 6% to 18% shortly.
