Isn't it amazing the US has gobs of billions in deficit spending for military spending and expansion, and no money for domestic infrastructure, no money for the imploding safety nets, no money for decent unemployment, no money to restrain inadequately governed police violence cultures, no money for social equity projects, no money for addressing climate change, no money for everything we need.

But plenty of billions for military expansion/maintenance/whatever boondoggles like the F-35 black budget hole.
