The Brutality of Reason Example

By Ironcross One-One

Slicing and dicing things into pieces small enough
to be fed to Liberals, Kooks and Anti-Americans.
When feeding Kooks and Anti-Americans
I suggest a potato gun.

If you are the emotional liberal type, this mindspace will make you uncomfortable. If you think my logic or facts are faulty, lets discuss it. When your findings disagree with my findings, that is dialogue. But using rhetoric to disagree with science is demogoguery. No demogoguery! I usually refrain from insults, but occasionally, ignorance and liberal hypocrisy bring out the worst in me.

What’s better spent?

$5,000,000 on JDAMs or $5,000,000 on welfare?

$5,000,000 spent on welfare does not train anyone for a job. It doesn't provide a job - except for the bureaucracy that distributes it. That bureaucracy does not actual produce a good and it is a consumer of energy, real estate, paper and time. It does nothing to improve the prospects of the target population - it is a parasite that delivers only subsistence to the poor.

$5,000,000 spent on JDAMs (Joint Direct Attack Munitions - GPS Guided Bombs) pays people to produce goods with a tangible value. Those goods are used to compel persons to think carefully before conflicting with our national interest. (Was that diplomatic or what?) This helps provide a stable economic environment for enterprise.

Investment in JDAMs requires people to be employed in mining, chemistry, manufacturing, transportation, as well as design, leadership and capital investment.

Lets see - Feed a parasite to keep the poor impoverished or offer someone a job... Tough choice.

Good points. Most of the national debate ignores the fact that not only does military spending boost production and provide jobs, a portion of it also comes back full circle as corporate or personal income tax (or sales tax on items the people who have nice shiny new jobs buy).
