    In my opinion, the United States does not need more defense spending. They only need to use the tools with greater intelligence. Being smarter helps you do more with less effort. So Americans can simply do more simply by not spending, but using their brains more. It certainly does not lack them.

    I get the impression that Trump looked at the current budget and said, "I want this, this, and this."
    "Sir, what about the rest of the programs in the budget?"
    "I don't care about those I only care about the ones I picked! Just cut them out or something."

    why can't we Americans buy a car or a house as examples and only pay taxes just that one time, not every year on the same house or car for 30 plus years. WHY? why are republican terrorist party supporter complete MORONS? WHY? what makes the hypocrite Christians continue to support trump a cheaper at EVERY THING (marriage, taxes, business, etc) and act like complete MORONS? WHY? stupid republicans wish you all move to a country more suitable to your whining RUSSIA, NKorea, Iran for starters

They have a night mare where they are suffering in horrible pain and on life support despite having a well written living will that asks for no heroic measures be used to keep him alive. The doctor walks up to him and says, "Sir, we know you want us to pull the plug. We know you are in horrible pain, but there is small writing on your living will claimed you once stated you would never leave this world if you had to leave a deficit that you caused. It was even one of your promises before the election."

    Gut the infrastructure and make the dealers of war equipment even more comfortable. Sickening that our idiotic species still relies on violence and fear despite the fact that little kids can't get enough food to stay alive or clothes to keep from freezing or medicine to not die from measles or polio. If you run some numbers you'll soon realize it'd be much less costly to make people secure than to "invest" in war gear. If you really want to get pissed off search the internet for the "cost to kill an enemy combatant" and prepare to be sickened and amazed. What governments are doing needs to be stopped.

    Thank fvcking Christ that NASA's budget is finally being slashed. Honestly, i would prefer to see NASA abolished altogether.

    • JamesHLanier
      JamesHLanier 3 месяца назад

      We wouldn't need the private sector if NASA was properly funded. However, the private sector is free to explore as well. We need as much going towards space as possible. It's not like we don't have the money. Just take some out of defense.

    • cromusic ibra
      cromusic ibra 3 месяца назад

      I DO believe that space is the future, but NASA is a dinosaur. It should be extinct. Space exploration should go to the private sector - let the private aerospace companies explore our vast universe. The federal budget (American taxpayer dollars) is funding NASA. Americans should not have to open their wallets every time some NAShole wants to take a billion-dollar photograph of Jupiter. And don't even get me started on searching for ET - they've been searching for over (WELL over) 35 years. If NASA will stop doing that, then i'm OK with its funding. But i think it's pretty clear after 35 years and 50 billion dollars wasted, we're not gonna find ET, not in our solar system. And if i'm wrong, i will eat my hat.

    • JamesHLanier
      JamesHLanier 3 месяца назад

      cromusic ibra 3 месяца назад

      That's not what i meant. All i'm saying is that i'm glad that NASA is being funded less. I used to have a video on my old RUclip channel titled "The Space Race Is Over" all about scrapping NASA and why it's a useless organization.

      They are preparing their military to wage a full scale campaign on poor and defenceless countries to loot their artefacts, antiquities and seizing control of the natural and mineral resources to further fuel the war machine to take on more stronger nations and defeat them and take their resources and probably control every country as puppet or client states.
      And also enslaving every non-american men for are healthy or fit enough to be in forced labour camps and mostly get beaten to death by the prison camp guards, the women become forced and submitted as sex workers for the frustrated american soldiers that need "relief" and have their perverted ways with the non-american women, forever being exploited and abused by their "imperial masters".
      Then we all get purged globally by cybernetic and biologically enhanced chemical agents that instantly spreads throughout the world only designed kill and or control the population of non-americans to a more manageable level and later replaced the deaths with a more loyal american populous, that holds it values, beliefs and demographics, but some of are spared to be tested for research purposes, tortured for information, for gladiator style arena sport or exploited or traded for various commodities such as for resources or services, as sex slaves and as work slaves or maybe as pets, we may never know.

We had more Toys then we could Train with or ever Fucking use. If you Dont know a M1A2 Abrams tank Costs US$8.92 million and each Round we Fired was $3,000. I would Literally drive out to the Desert and Piss away 20 to 50 Rounds some Days bc we were Just Bored. You all Paid $60,000 to $150,000. They Call it Training but we literally had more Rounds then we knew what to do with and we knew we would get more.

However there is a recent report on checks on the U.S nuclear state which shown; poorly trained personal, facilities in need of significant repair, degrading service operations manuals. If one of these nukes needed to be used I sure hope the people using it know how to aim it and also don't use it when the winds will blow fallout back on our own troops or allies.
