Dude, if I could itemize the shite that is being spend on that has ZERO to do with the war effort and ZERO to do with making Joe's life better, you'd barf.
I believe it.
Good buddy of mine is over there and he says it's common practice for thousands of dollars worth of equipment to just "walk off" and the typical response and concern is simply "how quickly can we get a replacement" Where the original equipment went is not even a concern.
That's why I say we could make large cuts to military spending and have virtually 0 negative effect on national security or troop protection.
For fricks sake, the US government spends 21 million PER YEAR to sponsor Dale Jr's stock car. They commissioned a study to see how the sponsorship effected recruitment. The study concluded that not one single recruit could be tied to the NASCAR sponsorship. NOT ONE.
A republican congressman from GA made an effort to cut it, but could not get ANY support. frick Washington.
