Pissing away tomorrow

There you go--again--Mitt. Grousing on the op-ed page of the Chicago Tribune that, golly gee, so few of our NATO posse want to spend at least 2% of their budget on the military, i.e. welfare for the military industrial purveyors of death and destruction, or as I think of it "Billions for Boeing" . Silly Europeans, building infrastructure and supporting education.  Ah how I miss the roads in Germany, not a pothole in sight.

 

Don't fret robotic Mittens: America already pisses away enough cash on the military for the entire NATO posse. We're Number One!, in wasting our treasure, or in just putting it on the credit card but off the books as Cheney and his boy Bush did.

 

And if you cheapskate 1% types would pay your fair share, just think--we could pay for more "aircraft" (your word) and guns to blow up the world! What FUN! for your neo-conservative advisors!

 

So when our public school children find themselves in classes of 50; or seniors are reduced to eating no-name dog food (can't afford the name brand) with unmet health care--we will remember that you and the GOP opposed spending on infrastructure and the education of Americans (or infrastructure for the brain). You only want to spend on more boys--like my Navy nephew--with their overpriced killer toys. Really the only thing I believe in is "killer apps."

 

America's future pissed down the economic toilet.

    TIMELINE June 1972 to June 1973---Candace moves to Lima (Peru)----- June 1973 to May 1974---Candace and The Husband live in Glendale AZ----- May 1974 to August 1974---Living in Toronto, Ontario (Canada)----- September 1974 to May 1975---Living in Aberdeen SD----- May 1975 to July 1979---Living in Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada)----- July 1979 to June 1980---Living in Asuncion (Paraguay)----- June 1980 to September 1980---Living in NYC----- September 1980 to November 1982---Living in Connecticut----- November 1982 to January 1983---Living in Ponce, Puerto Rico (USA)----- February 1983 to July 1986---Living in Willemstad, Curacao (Netherlands Antilles)----- July 1986 to July 1989---Living in Guayaquil (Ecuador)----- July 1989 to July 1995---Living in Connecticut (yes, again)----- July 1995 to August 2001---Living in Mexico City (Mexico)----- August 2001---Return to Gringolandia (a.k.a. United States of America)----- I was an accidental expatriate; love and marriage led me to it. One day I was a bandy-legged kid sitting atop my dogwood tree looking out of my small backyard world in 1950s New Jersey, wanting to move somewhere--anywhere, different. Next thing I knew I met a young hirsute anti-war, soon-to-be-Peace Corps volunteer, fell in love and moved to Peru in the 1970s. WHAT an adventure it's been!! NOTE: I gave up Facebook, so apologies that I cannot answer any comments since it is only set up via FB.
