Glaringly Obvious

December 8, 2019

At least to an armchair peacenik

Forget the quid pro quo

For that is a given

By keeping an eye on the money

Since that is the distraction

Ask why your tax dollars

400 milion of them

Are leaving the country any way

“The State Department funding included $115 million for a broad array of purposes, to buy American-produced weapons through the Foreign Military Financing program, but also to provide advisers and training to boost Ukraine’s NATO interoperability: English language labs, medical equipment and improvised bomb simulators. The funds could also pay for spare parts, sustainment and training for previously purchased U.S. gear.”

That is merely military industrial complex corporate welfare socialism trading your tax dollars by “giving” other countries play money to keep US proletarians producing and consuming.

Waving flags and excrementing their opinion on the “evil’s” of “socialism”.

Why?

Whew, I could leave that right there.

“What’s gonna happen to the Arms industry, when we realise we’re all one? HAHA! It’s gonna fuck up the economy!

The economy that’s fake anyway! This would be a real bummer. So you can see why the government’s cracking down on the idea of experiencing unconditional love.”

There are a myriad of answers.

Here’s one.

The Pavlovian puppet people puppies are so well trained by ringing the “evil’s” of “socialism” bell, they don’t even know they are participating in it.

“We spend a lot of time talking about the value of an education in America.

But if education is such a valuable investment, why do we spend more than eight times as much of our federal budget on the military than schooling?

One indicator of a nation’s priorities lies in its federal budget. And by that logic, America’s budget makes clear that we prioritize defense over all other expenditures — by a wide margin. In 2015, military expenditures accounted for about 54 percent of our discretionary spending, according to The National Priorities Project. In contrast, education accounted for only six percent of the budget.”

“People don’t want anything near ‘em… except military bases. They don’t mind that do they? They like that. Give ‘em an army base, give ‘em a navy base, makes ‘em happy, why? Jobs! Jobs! Self-interest! Even if the base is loaded with nuclear weapons, THEY DON’T GIVE A FUCK!!!

They say “well, I’ll take a little radiation if I can get a job!” Working people have been fucked over so long in this country, those are the kind of decisions they’re left to make.”

The bigger picture is that the military industrial complex budget is nearly a Trillion $ 1,000,000,000,000.

Strange thing to spend money on, in an allegedly “Christian” nation.

Don’t know much about that Jesus fellow, however, have never gleaned any perceptions, writings or myths that he advocated any one voluntarily give the “state” a sixth of their income to use on wmds.

Wreaking havoc terror and fear on people who would perhaps, just like to eat and care for their families.

Perspective:

1 Trillion divided by 220 million people = $4,500 per each per year

“It’s just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.”

Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.”
