  1. Know More Than I Should says

    The United States’ military budget adds up to MORE than the combined total spent by next eight big spenders on defense. They are: China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, France, United Kingdom (Britain), Germany, Japan, and India.

    Yet, unless one wants to count Granada, the United States military hasn’t won a war in 70 years!

    Despite this, the draft-dodgers and Yellow Elephant Republicans in Congress want to pick a fight with Iran.

    By the way, these are many of the same people that want to bring back child labor, raise the retirement age, and turn Social Security into a slush fund for the wealthy.

  2. Just Sayin' says

    This is only the case if one is an American. A lot of my tax dollars go to, for example, national health insurance.

    • Know More Than I Should says

      Meanwhile, in additions to national and state taxation, Americans have to pay extra if they’re going to have health health insurance.
