Capitalist Paradise Regional Message Board
@The Allied States of Go Away Progressives, what are you talking about? Kinda lost me with this last post.
I think he's having a stroke.
While it's cool to disagree with people, talking down to them isn't. But please, keep calling me dumb while saying spending money to help sick people and reducing the size of a military that spends hundreds of billions of dollars is a bad idea.
Ok? Did I miss something here because that was pretty violent and had nothing to do with the discussion.
GAP flipped out on Metacrisis, I think. Or just flipped out in general.
I could be way wrong here, so I'd appreciate if they clarified what they were talking about.
Can someone give me some background on this? It's well known just how much the US spends on the military but I often hear about it's huge cutbacks. How much are we talking as the nation remains first by a mile for military spending? Or is it just a question of how much is allocated compared to other things the government spends on?
If I remember right, the Military wants alot of money, and it doesnt get it.
Example, the US military wants $1 billion, but they get $750 million. Ofcourse, I could be wrong
That's not gutting, it's just not getting what you wanted in the first place and it applies to every single government agency in existence.
The thing about the war on drugs is the government incarcerated people who were addicted instead of treating them leading to a rise in gang violence because they couldn't find a job
Spurious quote of dubious origin:
"We never saw or heard anything from our dad, John Ehrlichman, that was derogatory about any person of color," wrote Peter Ehrlichman, Tom Ehrlichman, Jan Ehrlichman, Michael Ehrlichman and Jody E. Pineda in a statement provided to CNN.
"The 1994 alleged 'quote' we saw repeated in social media for the first time today does not square with what we know of our father. And collectively, that spans over 185 years of time with him," the Ehrlichman family wrote. "We do not subscribe to the alleged racist point of view that this writer now implies 22 years following the so-called interview of John and 16 years following our father's death, when dad can no longer respond. None of us have raised our kids that way, and that's because we were not raised that way."

The "quote" was never published but allegedly recorded by journalist Dan Baum for a book. It has an inauthentic air because it was not published at the time and it's not clear that a leading White House official would make the mistake of being unaware that both substances were already illegal and that the "blacks on heroin" scare dated from 1914 when the Harrison Act was crafted. Nixon won in 1968 largely because LBJ was unable to stop the Vietnam War. The Selective Service act, prior to 1969, excluded privileged white college students (mainly Democrats). Once those individuals were included in the "draft" the US exploded into an orgy of unbridled violence.
In 2016, they got 585.5 billion, so they aren't exactly starving for money.
