Other than Americans are just plain stupid - oops, I've had to modify my phrasing to "intellectually uncurious" - I can't understand how ANYONE can look at this and not see where spending cuts have to happen! And, unfortunately, neither candidate will mention it, as the accepted wisdom is that it would be political suicide.

We are so fucking far out of whack that it just BAFFLES me. How can anyone justify that we spend more than 3x as much as all our possible "enemies" - I'm counting China, Russia, UAE (yes, I *did* go there!), Iran, Pakistan, and probably North Korea - combined, and that there isn't HUGE room for cuts there? It's insane, crazy, screwed, whacked, unbalanced, mad, loco, and nonsensical. Not to mention just plain wrong.

I just want to SCREAM - and often do - when I hear these neocon retards (a word I don't like my children to use, that is totally non-PC, yet strangely appropriate here) talk about cutting things like Medicaid, or Education, or Social Security. Duh! Lop half the military budget off and we can fund EVERYTHING that would make this country a better place, PLUS start helping Third World countries increase their standard of living. Once people are fed, clothed, and housed, they somehow forget about fighting FUCKING WARS all the time! Strange how that works...
