So the soldiers don't even get a cost of living adjustment, the US continues to be the largest arms dealer in the world, and they are giving funding to a fake syndrome. What a god damned joke. I also note that nothing is in this that addresses the consumption of fossil fuels that makes the US military one of the largest emitters (top 50) of greenhouse gases in the world. I see that we are back to normal. Well done, Biden. Your Build Back A Better Trump is proceeding apace.

Well, thank God those poor Raytheon execs can buy themselves a third hooker and another kilo of coke for XXXmas.

I find myself, as one hates war and is terrified for the future of my children, very concerned we aren't spending enough. Shrink the Army. Build at least two more shipyards.

Ukraine is a reminder that the power politics that have existed since the first human tribes has not and will not go away. If someone thinks they can take something by force cheaply, they will. I would rather over pay for conventional deterrence than suffer the world where it is lacking.

I do so hap-hap-happy that Democrats increased the pentagon budget. Again.

yup.  but you can imagine that conservatives are rightfully outraged about how much we spend on welfare, because it's like twice that.

This will a biatch for inflation, but at least my Lockheed and Raytheon stocks got a shot in the arm this morning.

Republicans will say it's for the good of the country and we need national defense so we can go to war.

Dems will also say it's for the good of the country and that we need national defense so we can go to war, but they will also add that it's the most progressive military spending bill in decades.

FTA:  and $300 million in military aid to the Ukrainian Security Assistance Initiative,

Yeah, but only if President Zelensky agrees to an investigation of Donald Trump, Jr., right?
 
2021-12-08 10:29:49 AM  
Look, we can't afford to feed the hungry because we really need this thing the boys down at r&d are calling a "toaster roaster". I have no clue what it does, but for $5b/ea they said it'll make regular missiles obsolete. So we're gonna have to find that instead so we can defend ourselves from all those hungry people stealing apples.

How would shrinking the Army help vis-a-vis the situation in Ukraine?

And do you think the government owns the shipyards that build the Navy's ships? Because they don't.
 
2021-12-08 10:30:04 AM  
Oh, we're going to spend $150 million to investigate UAP.

Uhh, they know where the UAPs are coming from, and what is controlling them. Just shoveling money into black boxes. AOIMSG is a joke.

You didn't think they actually spent $10,000 for a hammer, $30,000 for a toilet seat, did you?

The bill also establishes an "office, organizational structure, and provides authorities to address unidentified aerial phenomena," also known as UFOs.

The $770B for the military is a little over 11% of the federal budget.

Try reading the farking article, dummy.

The final version of the bill, which leadership from both chambers have agreed to, contains changes to how sexual assault and harassment are prosecuted and handled within the military, a 2.7% pay increase for military service members and Defense Department civilian employees,

You and I both know that. Communists aren't known for being overly smart, however.

And let me state for the record that our version of capitalism is completely garbage as well, even though I personally benefit from it.
