Well, gee, maybe the 95 percent of the U.S. "defense" budget used to police the globe (NATO, Japan, South Korea, Israel, Outer Albania, ad nauseaum) has something to do with it. "The budget we don't want to face" has everything to do with the foreign policy we don't want to face.
Golly jeepers, I think you're right. Still, that's only a fraction of the social "services" budget. Playing world police force is a huge problem. It's hardly the only problem.
Wrong. Go read the budget. The military is not where the glut of spending is by a long shot. Meanwhile, Obama wants to play a cross between Willy Wonka and Gloria Steinam, skipping thru the streets handing out free birth control pills and condoms like candy and balloons for all. Yes, and a golden ticket in the offing will save us all as we dismantle the mean old military/industrial complex and build a shiny new federal factory complete with oompa loompas and a chocolate waterfall. We won't need soldiers since we will be inviting everyone over here as friends, right? It just gives me goosebumps. Can you imagine one kid asking another, "What flavor is your condom?" All paid for by US. Cue Disney song, "A Whole New World"... They already changed the words to one Aladin song. Mr. Huxley, call your office.
