  •  90% of the military budget (2+ / 0-)

    The US spends more on its military than the entire rest of the world combined--while maintaining hundreds of bases in most countries of the world---------against nobody.

    The Cold War ended two decades ago.  May I respectfully suggest that continuing to fight it today, is a really really stupid idea? Our opponent no longer even exists. It's time to declare that the war is over.

    There is no one on this planet--absolutely nobody--who presents any realistic threat to our society, and certainly nobody who can justify the massively bloated military super-state that we waste trillions every year to prop up.

    It's time to end it.

    And by the way, the very idea that we need a massive Cold-War-level military state to defend us against . . .  twenty guys with boxcutters . . .  is too stupid to even take seriously.
