Last night, the House passed a $768 billion defense budget.

That's a full $30B more than Trump's last defense budget. It's also $24B more than what Biden requested. And to top it off, we just ended the longest war in US history.

The military-industrial complex is off the rails.

Couple this with the cultural phenomena is military idolatry. It's no wonder the other aspects of our society suffer.

-The lopsided 363-to-70 vote on Tuesday sent the legislation to the Senate, where it is expected to pass with strong bipartisan support as soon as this week.

This could be news....but since it's bipartisan....it's not. I'm almost surprised the New York Times even bothered to run this story.

Margie Traitor Green who just spent weeks screaming about spending on the infrastructure took the brave stand of "no vote" on the bill. Maybe she was too busy banging a cross fit trainer to vote.

How about a military that can pass an audit? They can't control the spending and do nothing but toss more cash. Fighting is not the solution to all problems. It is the dumb and easy way that is for sure.
