What the media and the politicians are NOT telling you about military spending

What the media and the politicians are NOT telling you about military spending.

The neocon GOP and MIC propaganda is all pervasive.
(MIC is the Military Industrial Complex Eisenhower warned about in his farewell address in 1961. Here is the clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8y06NSBBRtY
Please watch it, if you haven't already done so. It is only 2 minutes long.)

This propaganda appears on ALL TV channels and ALL the main papers.

The politicians outright lie about military spending every day.
Boehner : "the military cuts (in the fiscal cliff sequestration) will have a drastic effect on our National Defense."
Total garbage - they could find the $24bn in the fiscal cliff from petty cash.
But nobody - not from the GOP or the Dems or the mainstream media calls him out about it.

You won't see any analysis of military spending from any mainstream media outlet or any politician.

Continued at :-

The US spent $1,219bn on the military in 2012.
Military spending is now SEVENTY FOUR percent higher than at the peak of the cold war and Vietnam.

It is very EASY to cut the military budget by $500bn+ ANNUALLY without losing jobs.

Jobs need to be lost. Cuts

Jobs need to be lost. Cuts need to happen...but they won't.

It's because we have

a leader who won the Nobel PEACE Prize.

All of this spending is keeping us safe...we are so lucky to live here.

(You would have to have brain damage to believe that!)

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
