    3:42 How was this ordeal not enough to disqualify him as president? It's certainly indisputable proof that he's a fucking moron. I hope someone makes a compilation of all this dumb shit one day, since I thought I had heard it all and I hadn't heard this gem before.

    Even if Hillary was elected it would still feel like right now is the beginning of the end of America as we know it. Now we essentially have a President that lies about nearly everything, has accomplished only 1 major thing he promised and it was almost entirely Paul Ryan's tax plan so whether you hate it or love it it wasn't Trumps doing, no matter who if any Republican had won the exact same plan would've gone through. So it really feels like the last days of Rome here.

    Starting pay for an enlisted solider is under 20k and the food is crap and many people develop chronic issues with their backs or knees over their time in the service not to mention you might be blown up by a scared, overwhelmed teenager in your unit. The money isn't going to us enlisted. Why hasn't tump given us a decent raise? The democrats in congress approved a 5.5% raise in 07 over the objections of the Bush administration. Obama had to deal with the recession and the freedom caucus forced sequestration down our throats so we never got over 2% during his presidency. Tump promised on the campaign trail to get on his knees and blow the military ever day but then let DoD continue cutting our BAH to 95% of average housing costs and only gave us a 2.4 raise which is barely above inflation especially with gas and food costs raising so precipitously. Many spouses can't work with child care costs so high, especially as the majority of bases are in rural areas where the jobs are almost exclusively low paying retail ones. So yeah, the extra military money is nothing more kickbacks and bribes to fellow millionaires working in the military industrial complex. Fuck the troops I guess. Patriotism is blowing Boeing and Raytheon.

    11:48 to 12:00 Well yeah Trump is going to have an angry mob of people after him by the year 2020, his own party members may try to fight him physically, or maybe nobody will attack Trump after his term is up but if he is seen in a restaurant or in a public place after his term however long that will last he may be assaulted, abused or possibly threatened his life and I know I sound like a Trump hater but it is true that is those are the three things that are VERY likely to happen to Trump if what John Oliver said is true.

    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.

    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

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.

    • JamesHLanier
      JamesHLanier 5 месяцев 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 5 месяцев 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

      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".
