This article should make your teeth grind. This is what the new austerity is paying for - 1.2 Trillion in "defense" spending. This fucking country is NOT BROKE. It is awash in money, a veritable gusher of cash that pours undeservedly towards the Department of War.
Again, there is NO BUDGET CRISIS. America just prefers to spend it's vast wealth on murder.
Does that make you proud to be an American? It makes me fucking well ashamed.
