Military Spending

Thought I was going to get through the day with just games.

How is it that we need to spend this much on the military? I mean I get wanting to have overwhelming superiority, and I get that as a share of GDP it's probably not as bad as this graphic. But c'mon. We have to make choices in this country because of this?

We could have free healthcare, with complimentary massage on the way out, and a return to housecalls for this much money.

Bullet train depots in our driveways maybe? 5:1 student teacher ratios?

One more time...I get this. I dont want to be second place, I dont want it to be close either, but this is just silly.

US vs World
