US neocons of both parties think 40 BILLION dollars is like ‘penny candy’ growing from a tree. The easily manipulated masses glued to CNN or FOX have no idea what 40 billion dollars even means anymore. Do they even care? Most think dollars just fall from the sky…as they cash their COVID stimulus checks while complaining that everything costs more. 🤫 Today, unfortunately, there are no more grounded realists like Eisenhower, who kept America out of war (foreign conflicts) and balanced the budget, while fighting the military industrial complex. https://eisenhowersleadership.com/tag/u-s-balanced-budget/ – Texas Representative Chip Roy (CD-21) gets passionate after House democrats (with plenty of Republican neocon dupes) create a $40 billion Ukraine spending bill…and then demand an immediate vote for support…or else you’re a Russian sympathizer. 🥱 Not even time for lawmakers to read the bill? Just vote for it, don’t worry about the corruption or where the money actually ends up…Sounds like Afghanistan. Moreover, despite the usual weak propaganda, this war in Ukraine does not threaten US national security. * Big cities like Chicago are war zones, but it’s no problem for the US debt monster, which must exhaust itself (like past empires) waging “perpetual war for perpetual peace” on a global scale. The US also spent (borrowed) at least 91.4 billion on military assistance for the failed state of Afghanistan. Of course, much more was spent when one includes other categories on the failed nation building attempt by liberal idealists. But this was over a 20 year period, not one year. Bonus time for Raytheon. 🤤 ** US neocons of both parties love printing endless money (debt) for the benefit of the military industrial complex (and their own perpetual re-elections) to fuel inflation and misery for its own citizens. Now, some want to bomb Iran. Meanwhile, these global crusaders leave their own southern border virtually defenseless as waves of illegal aliens invade America, changing its culture and draining its resources. Where do they find these neocon wackos? Liberal idealists are always pimping for more war, more bogeymen…more funding for relevancy. *** The post Cold War neocon era of endless interventionism has been a total disaster, one colossal failure after another. It’s been a real sh_t show in America since the end of the Cold War…the Clinton era (plus Junior Bush, Obama, Biden) accelerated the cheapening of America’s reputation and ushered in a new era of bottom shelf charlatans. Indeed, the neocons have destroyed (in just 30 years) the great reputation that took centuries for America to build. Back then, the US was led by much greater men. Today, there are no more realists like Eisenhower…who kept America out of war (foreign conflicts) and balanced the budget, while fighting the military industrial complex. https://eisenhowersleadership.com/tag/u-s-balanced-budget/ Today, there are just reckless, amateur blowhards who specialize in creating global mayhem, destabilization and economic slavery.
