Biz Mike-G stays on fire, ripping the Administration’s animus against the military.
Instead, the Obama administration is slashing defense spending and cutting programs that employ tens of thousands of highly-skilled (and often union) workers. The administration drew a line in the sand over less than $2 billion for the most advanced fighter aircraft in the world that also happens to provide manufacturing jobs in 40+ states across the country. But the Obama administration did spend $3.2 billion on “Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Research” as part of the stimulus, another $2 billion on “Advanced Battery Loans and Grants,” and $2 billion “for capitalization grants under section 1452 of the Safe Drinking Water Act.” I’m sure that any day now the Wall Street Journal will be publishing stories on all the jobs those programs created.
And, yeah, Confucius* didn’t forget “spending” after “military” above. Because the clear objective is that we have a smaller, less effective military, in order, one presumes, to be less threatening to the “friends we haven’t met.”
*For those who came in late, Confucius is the Gormogons’ Œcumenical Volgi.
Don’t ask impertinent questions like that jackass Adept Lu.
