The effective cost of the various bailout packages is that the expansion of the U.S. military that had been set in motion is now effectively dead. D-E-A-D.
That's the word in Washington that no one wants to talk about, proving once again that regardless of which party's administration sits atop the Executive, the military is the only federally mandated 'program' ever under consideration for real and meaningful cuts.
And that's now. If Obama is elected, he's been promising to slice big bleeding chunks out of the military. After all, with the Obamessiah elected there will be peace, so long as we destroy our military and sovereignty, right?
And yes, I am expressing my opinion on this crap to the congressvarmints.
