Pentagon: Trim That Excess Fat and Waste

A new survey indicates 65% of Americans want to reduce the Pentagon budget. Now. War or no war. They want the Pentagon money shifted to deficit reduction, education, job training, veterans’ benefits and renewable energy development.

When asked how much of a reduction they wanted, the average amount given was $131 billion, or 31% of the Pentagon budget. The average respondent also favored adding $24 billion to the budget for developing renewable energy sources.

Are you listening, Congress? According to this poll, it’s no longer political suicide to try injecting a little sanity into our government’s twisted sense of priorities. What are you waiting for? Let’s go!


Have you signed The Petition yet? It’s a letter to the Federal Election Commission (text already filled in; just fill in the fields and click on Send) demanding that all Internet communication (that’s us!) be protected from government control. As the saying goes, I might not agree with what you say but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it. All bloggers are in this together.

Thank you Jet at God Dem! for providing the link.

Your welcome, and thank YOU for adding your voice to this effort. I think legislation denying bloggers the opportunity to refine their medium is something we all need to refute.
