By the DESIGN of the Pentagon brass, there are a significant number of "defense industry" jobs in EVERY ONE of the 435 Congressional districts in the country. There was at LEAST one corp. supplying "vital" parts or services for the B-2 bomber in all 435.
Maintaining and supplying the US military is the BIGGEST employer of workers in the country.
As a practical matter, "we" are NEVER gonna get outta the "war" business...Sucking chest wounds are as Murkin as baseball, apple pies and Chevrolet...
Well, Duh...: Which is, quite self-evidently, why there has never been and likely never WILL BE "true peace."
Bad Meme A'Rising: Rank, raw propaganda.
The basic IMAGE is "wrong," is a canard, a corruption of the idea of cooperative civilization, probably originating with the oligarchs.
Gummint isn't some kind of a social "milch cow."
It's much more of a universally accessible Leatherman tool.
Humans initiate gummint to accomplish socially what they cannot manage individually; Water systems, and boundary defense, and food production, and health assistance, and shit like that.
If the icon is to be one of sustenance, it should be of a deep, flowing river, or the sea, from which all the people sip to slake their needs.
This whole image--the 'meme'-- is an element of pro-oligarchic propaganda.
Limbaugh of the Left? You hear in this clip the "real" Big Eddie Schultz, the one-time, wanna-be "Limbaugh of the Left," the hectoring bully, the intellectual microcephalic, the ignorant imbecile, the smirking coward.
"I am with the President!"
As if that excuses forsaking moral integrity.
But of course Big Ed never actually HAD any of that slippery commodity, weasling into left radio when it became evident that the one, righturded, fat, fatuous, corpoRat knob-gobbler there already was was enough. What an odious prick!
