I’ve discussed with a few conservatives how the “bloated” military budget is in reality job-creation… but can’t you Americans spend it on better things?
*looks at computer, cell phone with GPS*
Never mind. Keep on researching technology.
I am currently reading a trilogy about ‘Weaponized Xenomorphs’. If you’ve seen the ‘Alien’ movies, that’s what a Xenomorph is called. Imagine a military controlling thousands of those …..
Now imagine them losing control of thousands of those
We’d need a fuckton of Predators. It’s gonna be like laser tag for them. Or an arcade.
imagine a female controlling all of these, and call it a queen…oh, nvm…
I tend to view part of the government’s military budget as job-creating, but a large part is essentially a subsidization of the defense of several other countries (NATO, Taiwan, South Korea etc.), and there is a lot of excess contractor profits and inefficiencies in the budget as well. Arpanet proved useful though, I guess.
The Vietnamese War gave us computers, the Cold War gave us GPS. WWII gave us sports cars (not quite as directly, though).
Wars supply us with technology. Peace supplies us with the inequalities to go to war.
“and as the last domino falls, their house of cards collapses, Checkmate!!”
Our military is Zapp. The rest of us normies are Kif.
*Zapp is Trump.
Which is… arguably the same as saying our military. But I don’t think the average grunt is ‘Zapp’
