    Our Taxes pay for the things in the Pentagon Budget. Stop the Flow. Kill the Pentagon's budget!
    Surplus? Who authorized that money in the first place? Who gives them a Blank Check? This isn't new and it's got to stop.

      would like to know why police departments have better equipment than his unit did on either of his tours in that godforsaken place!

      Being "pro-life" means believing that every child born has a right to food, education, and access to health care.

        -when I heard the phrase ...the Pentagon was doling out free military equipment to the police departments..." that got me started. I know I've read about soldiers needing stuff. Ain't no surplus anything until they're supplied, just as a 'balanced budget' is bullshit as long as there's potholes and hungry people.
