    some program talking about how we have to increase defense spending.

    I have come to hate that word "defense" and really what does defense have to do with all the MIC spending?

      last night and Gwen Ifill had two pudnits talking about Defense (aka Military Expansion) spending. The Pro-MIC guy was smirking and scoffing everytime the other pundit suggested we spend too much. Felt like throwing a brick at the teevee.

        disgustingly arrogant?

        As if what this country needs is more billions to the MIC, being so bloated already with the billions spent, that the DOD cannot even account for all the taxpayers money, cannot even pass an audit, the only federal agency that doesn't?
