  •  This diary is silly. (6+ / 0-)

    That's O.K; we need some silly sometimes. But, seriously, research is probably the last place the Pentagon should cut. Where's your evidence that DOD research is wasted? Research prepares us for the future, and some helps the Pentagon save money.

    There are plenty of places to cut the Pentagon budget: obsolete cold war weapons systems, unneeded military bases. Too much money is spend shoring up defense contractors in key districts.

      Love you Alan, but I sure hope this was written by a staffer during a slow saturday afternoon.  If I were a right wing loonytoon I would use this diary as an example of "moonbat" inanity and mock it at redstate.  

      Also... to be perfectly honest I was just a bit bemused by the stereotypical reference to Costa Ricans as baseball players.  If some wingding on the right made reference some basketball analogy and started talking about the supply of players from Africa.... well you see where I'm going.  

      Keep up the good fight Alan.  Not everyone on the left is guaranteed to appreciate everything you write and that is what makes us so much better than the other side, right?

      I am the neo-con nightmare, I am a liberal with the facts.

    •  The JSF is probably still "research" (1+ / 0-)

      Since it's not yet "deployed" (I think).

      Seriously, research is probably the first place to cut.
