    I'm not saying go to war and shit, I'm just saying it's foolish to not be armed in a world full of people. Your personal morals mean nothing to people shooting at you.

    There's always been violence in the Middle East. We just fucked it up some more.

    We use roughly $0.20 out of every $1.00 on defense. We spend almost three times as much on social programs. I don't where you got such an outrageous figure, but it's clear bullshit.

    This is unreal. PSN down for a ridiculous amount of time, the US kills Bin Laden and bombs Yemen; and yet Hitler hasn't gotten angry and gone on a rant about any of them? Inconceivable.

    Nice one! What year is that from?

    I heard the 0.58cents thing mentioned on Irish TV which I didnt check up at the time..but according to google in 2008 58% of all discretionary spending was on the military, which is almost certainly where the figure came from.

    That's the 2010 budget, so it's current. And as you can see, discretionary spending is only 2.97% of the national budget so it's a drop in the bucket.

    Be careful what you say man. Everyone will automatically disagree with you and you'll get a ton negative rep... like it even matters.

    I don't know about the $0.58 out of every dollar, but I do know we spend a shit ton on having the most technologically advanced military in the world... So we can blow up third world countries.

    Dear Westboro Baptist Church:

    We have a funeral for you to protest. It's somewhere in the middle of the northern Arabian Sea. We would be more than happy to help you pack, fly you there, and drop you off.
    Sincerely,
    America

    A Navy Seal walks into a bar and orders an OBL. The bartender says "Huh, whats that?"

    The Seal says "two shots and a splash of water."
