WhoopAssWayne: So, was this the USS Tyrone Biggums, or whatever Obama is naming naval ships these days? Or maybe the USS Tron Carter.

Oh my god, aren't you just precious. To think someone with your genotype managed to get on the internet and register for fark.  I tell you special education is a marvel it really is.  Here's a quarter, why don't you run back to the group home and masterbate furiously what a great troll you are.

If we are going to waste billions of taxpayers dollars it would have been nice to waste them on an American company.

Austal Ltd is an Australian company. So we are borrowing money from China to give to Australians to make flawed vessels that will likely be used to fight other nation's wars.

Mega Steve: spentmiles: Our defense spending is economical equivalent to China's construction spending.  We have our failed F-35s, next gen carriers, and glorified Titanics.  They have their empty cities, roads to nowhere, and other nonsense.  We're propping up our economy with this BS, but it's about to bite us in the ass.  The military budget is nearing the tipping point.  In a few years, the military will spend more on owed benefits to prior service members than it will on new projects.  That's going to gut the already dead fish of our country.  If you thought the last ten years were bad, just wait to see the next ten.  I've been socking away every penny getting ready for it.  It's sad to think that our parents worked and saved toward the actual goal of enjoying themselves.  We're working and saving so we'll have moldy bread and iodine darkened water to drink.  We're living in a fantasy right now, but it's about to end.

That was far too reasonable for spentmiles. What have you done with him?!?

He's busy stocking the bunker.
