Reality check Zanzibar...Military spending is "not" almost always the top government spender. This is a programmed brainwashed type statement
which so oftem passes for fact today. It never was true.
Top government spending today is in social programs ...giveaways. It has been for over 40 years now. This is how politicians maintain thier votes to
stay in office and gaurantee more give aways for power and office. Thinking people know this.
YOu do however make a good point about Boosting ecomonies of other countrys. We need to take the publics production away from their discretionary
spending/ownereship and give it away to foreign countrys gratis. This way we can breast feed all these nations which hate us so they can hate us even
more while taking our production. Classic public education dogma. By the way ..this is exactly what our polticians do with our moneys.
Furthermore Zanzibar...the classic textbook historical example of military spending being runaway like forever ...is The olde Soviet Union. So much of
their gross nation product went to the government and military spending that there was so little left for the public who was earning the moneys. We
know this is true today because one seldom ever sees goods and or services in our economy made in Russia..even today since the downfall and
restructuring of this Nation.
If what you state is true ...there would be no computers to post any opinions on nor colour television nor movie theaters nor automobiles, motorcycles
, Full shelves at the grocery stores, clothing stores..etc etc et al.
Yet we see so much of this stuff bombarding our daily lives to keep us uselessly occupied.
A further and countering opinion to yours is that I think we should take all this useless stuff to occupy our idle hours and take these moneys and
give it away to nations which hate us and build and maintain thier schools and hospitals etc etc etc et al. This way the public could say they are
directly going without to help these nations. How about we give up our cell phones and Ipods and of course our comptuers in order to help out these
All this stuff sounds good when you or folks like you are wont to post it and blame everyone else...but impead on your personal standard of living
and the outrage begins.
What you are posting is not true...social programs and give aways to other nations far outpaces military spending. It is just common sense. All I have
to do is go to a grocery store or shopping mall to have it confirmed.
The reason people believe this stuff is that public education is financed by politicians and they want more of the militarys moneys to spend buying
votes to maintain office. This line of thinking is very easy to inject in public education on people who are easily emoted to believe everything which
"feels good" and right.
Please try some thinking rather than emoting.
I have known this about Islam and Jihad for over 20 years now. I know this is a basic doctrine of the religion of peace.
Most people through public education programming tend to follow the standard mantras of the Crusades etc etc and blame all this on the west and
western civilization to bolster guilt conditioning.
Most do not know that the Muslims were on the move in the late 600s AD and invading Europe where they were finally stopped in 732AD at the Battle of
Tours in France by Charles Martel. This can be researched on the web..the information is there.
Dont get me wrong here ..I dont agree with the premise of the Crusades...any of them. I think the crusades were a phoney baloney used to cover up
other motives. I just know that the Muslims were on the move to spread islam by the sword some 300 years before the first Crusade.
The basic doctrine of Islam ..always has and always will be... to spread Islam by the Sword. Westerners are so programmed by this Religion of Peace
dogma they lose the ability to pick up the corner of the rug and look underneath.
Astonishing to me the "feel good " beliefs of most peoples out here...until thier goodies and lives are on the line. Then they become very frugal
with thier beliefs and goodies. Yet they want to be liberal with the beliefs and goodies of others. This is also a definition of Politics and
Politicians. Also remember Politics and Politicians finance our public education systems. The media is also a tool in this education/brainwashing
and shills for the body politic. None of these groups or shills will teach us what we need to think outside the "feel good" blocks which try to
default through today as excellence and truth. It is neither ..it is seduction. WHen you get the whole picture....the landscape is often quite
different than what is painted by governments or public education or even the media.
This is why thinking is important verses emoting. TO be able to think you must have informations..facts. NOt just emotions.
Most of our daily lives outside our occupations in America is full of amusements to prevent us from thinking.
Without thinking. Amuse/Amusement.
Once you understand this Amusement religion being foisted off on a willingly seduced people, many things around you become obvious.
This Amusement is for the purpose of preventing thinking...only emoting allowed...especially about our next amusement.
One more thing..I dont think these machines are cool. I think they are only a stop gap tool. They will not replace the human. They just change the
Something more for the "feel gooders " on this board. I will remind some of you that many of these peoples in these nations are turning to suidice
type bombers and are killing their own peoples and doing so by the hundreds. These were called at one time "Not so smart bombs."
Somehow and for some reason ..You folks are not wont to include this angle in these types of discussions. Why is that?? Especially since life is so
prescious to you?? I suggest very strongly that you reread this paragraph in light of the Religion of Peace posted in the earlier paragraphs.
