    ... remember the fact that some Pentagon or DoD or military honcho got up in front of a microphone at a news conference and said he favored budget cuts for the military because there were items (like one un-usable plane) they couldn't use that kept on being made because the factory where they were made was in some hot-shot senator's home state?

    I can never remember the guy's name, but I remember his face from the news conference (Mullins, maybe?  I associated the name with the Mayflower Mullins').  I think he was one of two from the military who have indicated they'd be willing to have some of their budget cuts because even they acknowledge they're getting too much money.

    The military can deal with the cuts, dammit.  Even their muckety-mucks said so!!!

    WHEN will we stop being a warmongering nation hell-bent for world domination all driven by corporations who have taken over so much of government already...?!?!?

    George Orwell is banging on the lid of his coffin and screaming, "Nineteen eighty-four was a cautionary tale, you dolts, not a motivational speech!"

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
