If we treat the military budget like Social Security, Army will consist of one “Mad Dog” and 3 puppies

The Social Security Trust Fund now totals $2,892,000,000  – just about the highest amount in history, and some scolds are still sad.

Mr. Gloom

To promote their austerity charade, the front groups of the Koch Brothers (descendants of the co-founder of the John Birch Society) just released their attack dog, John Stossel.

J. S. rants on FOX News about silly things, even suggesting everyone should save some 20% of their wages for retirement and maintaining that the poor don’t need luxuries like public schools or highways.

Social Security is running out of money. You may not believe that, but it’s a fact. That FICA money taken from your paycheck was not saved for you in a “trust fund.” Politicians misled us. They spent every penny the moment it came in. – Stossel (worth $4 million) laments.

President Trump has a chance to save mucho money if he just takes my amateur purchasing agent advice

Dark coat waving, tie curling, eyes focused in imperial triumph, what could be more awesome than the American Don alighting from Air Force One? This is not the Don of The Godfather, who measured his might in mere horse heads and bedposts. This is our President Don, who commands the mightiest military in history.

But Don has a problem. The fridges are acting up on both Presidential Boeings, not being cool, when they should. Call them undependable deplorables, needing replacement, like Senator Lindsey Graham at a voice-cracking contest. Warm beer, anyone?

The specs call for 70 cubic feet of space, doors, a little light inside, and I suppose stainless steel might be nice. These coolers would be like a big version of those 24 cubic foot jobs, that Sears would like to sell you before all their stores close.

Why am I so concerned about saving money on flying fridges that only have to last a couple years until the new ($2,000,000,000 each) Air Force One replacements arrive?

Any country that has to hike Medicare premiums on the poorest of its citizens by 24% this year is in financial trouble. The reason for this seemingly callous action is our national need to fund the growth of the military 2018 budget to $700 billion, which Senator Graham says is vital for defense of our 330 million well-armed Americans from an attack by 25 million emaciated, near-sighted North Koreans.
