It cannot be stopped. It's the reason we have two (sadly, and in reality, there are only two) presidential candidates that most people don't like and don't trust. Some of us can't stand them.
The military and its profiteers own our tax dollars. If you and I don't like it, exactly what are we going to do about it? Nothing. We are truly in strait-jackets, and government enjoys our predicament. Note that I didn't say "our government".
I'm sick to death of Israel's relentless entitlement to our taxes. While Americans fund Israel's war machine, Isralis get universal healthcare and we Americans get the Obama & Corporations shaft.
Meanwhile, the corporate class is prepping us for 8 more years of continued ownership of our tax dollars, to fund corporate welfare and war profiteering. We need to keep feeding Israel, don't you know.
If it sounds like I'm giving up, I am: On Americans. I'm truly mad as hell, and I have to take it because of our collective apathy and stupidity.
