Does Obama really think that he can freeze all of the Federal Budgets that deal with what used to be called “the commons” while he and his minions continue to funnel money to the corporations that work for DOD? What have I missed? It’s time to get a life and give them what for!
Glen Greenwald’s take is worth a read – though I think he’s a Johnny-come-lately; folks have been complaining about the DOD budget since Eisenhower – hell, even President/ General Eisenhower seemed like he was a bit nervous when he spoke of it upon leaving office. Folks like those at The War Resistors League and CDI have been pointing out that when we pay our taxes close to $0.50 on the dollar go towards military spending, in all its bizarre permutations (can you say bankers?).
Have a nice day!
