Despite my firm stance on the Non-Aggression Principle and my abhorrence of initiating violence, there are certain things that make me want to really punch someone in the face. Twice.
Take this stupid, idiotic, completely deceitful cartoon, supposedly from a “Conservative.” He’s a “Conservative” if that word means a big-spending, Statist government brown-noser.
Obviously, this is meant to decry the “‘defense’ cuts” that may possibly take place. Obviously, that won’t happen, but the sheer stupidity of this cartoon is such that I couldn’t defer responding to it.
I’m having a hard time keeping a somewhat-civil tongue right now. Or at least keyboard.
How about the reality of government spending on murdering defenseless children around the world. Let’s see how the U.S. government stacks up against the rest of the world. Poor little guy looks so emaciated in that picture up there!
Oops. Iran’s military, including their backdoor funding to Hezbollah, is almost too tiny to even show on this scale. The U.S. government’s terror proxies are funded through drug money-laundering operations, so that money wouldn’t show up on this chart.
You do realize that the facts make warmongering “Conservatives” like the idiot that drew the cartoon above look like the lying sleazeballs they really are, right? The U.S. government spends half as much on “defense” as the rest of the world combined. Yet Boeing, BAE, Lockheed-Martin, GE, General Dynamics, and all the rest of the Military-Industrial Complex need more of your confiscated wealth.
And you voted for these idiots. Pat yourself on the back, hero.
