So I followed the link to the Aja Goare article on Montana’s KRTV website, called Montana worst state for errors in food stamp allowances.
It said that in Montana “in 2014, the state Department of Health and Human Services issued $180 million dollars in benefits in food stamps through the SNAP program.”
Wow, that’s a lot of money, and that’s why I sent Burnett a tweet asking, ‘are you really against $180 million of our tax money going back into our local supermarkets and shops?’
I got no reply.
I figure a nincompoop would be against that, but Burnett isn’t a nincompoop – he’s just confused.
You see, he’s not really sure what happens to all that federal money we give to the feds. I decided to look, and this is about what it looks like:
As you can see, the Military is totally run amok in this country. You’re telling me that 55% of our budget is going to the military? Wow, we need to wake up!
We’re wasting money here, folks, on things like F-35 Fighters that cost $337 million.
What the hell was wrong with the F/A-18s that cost $92 million?
We can get almost four of those for one of these! (The F-16C/D cost $18.8 million when we were buying those, just to tell you how much we’re getting ripped off these days).
I guess that price wouldn’t make the military industrial complex (international arms dealers) any money, now would it?
Perhaps our people just aren’t good enough, so we need machines to help us.
That’s balderdash and you know it!
We’re just pissing money away because Congress is so cozy with these killers.
That’s what they are – killers. These arms dealers kill people all over the place! Worse, they usually give guns to both sides in a conflict. Talk about honor.
Honor rarely enters into ‘good business’ these days, however, so we get what we have now.
Is it any wonder that $8.5 trillion in “taxpayer dollars doled out by Congress since 1996 has never been accounted for,” according to the Fiscal Times? I think not.
Graft and waste and the military created our national debt. I’m not happy to see Senator Tester trolling around Twitter and Facebook, saying we need to raise our debt ceiling.
Great, but how long can we do that? I went ahead and asked that in this comment on a KHLH story that Mike Dennison had yesterday:
I’m sick of us not tightening our belts. We shouldn’t look to Tester for the kind of belt tightening we need, however – the man’s overweight.
Well, so is America. We can’t control our impulses and our children pay the price.
We need to roll up our sleeves, cut spending, and pay off that debt. The interest is killing us.
But I doubt we’ll do that. We don’t have the leadership to do that. Right now the international bankers are sucking us dry, living the high life on the interest we pay on that huge $19 trillion national debt.
When will we wake up in this country?
Please don’t tell me we have to wait for all the Baby Boomers to die or go to the home – that’s too long.
And God forbid that Hillary gets in office!
It’s clear that Bernie Sanders is just there to collect disgruntled votes before folding to her. They’ll lose some of his support, but most will go to her.
Mine won’t. I know she’ll continue to rack up that debt, feeding our bloated military what it wants while ignoring the needs of this country.
That’s not leadership, it’s suicide.
