Ukraine: Ants To the Picnic

In Columns

The money the federal government is planning on spending on Ukraine is so far beyond right and wrong that it is breathtaking. Has anyone even asked the question, “What if this doesn’t work?” The picnic is in Washington DC and the Military-Industrial Complex where we had no war going on. In their minds we can’t have that, so they threw America neck deep into a proxy war with Russia. The ants to the picnic are coming from everywhere trying to nibble on the taxpayer pie. The warmongers were back, and the neo-cons were happy once again.

To take the nation’s projected tax intake for the upcoming year and spend it on an orgy of projects in Ukraine sounds like madness. I am overwhelmed with the lack of leadership in America today. It would be so much cheaper and less painful to just give each citizen a million dollars and let the chips fall where they may. This incredulous attempt to somehow jump-start this economy with grand public works projects and God knows what else can never be allowed. They have a new war to conduct, and that war takes money, damn the Americans and their needs.

Think about all the misspent money in Iraq and Afghanistan that was never accounted for or lost. Think about the lost COVID-19 money that disappeared like a magic trick. Big bureaucracies are not set up to spend wisely. God help us all when Biden gets his hands on America’s budget to spend on whatever he wants. Joe has war now, he just threatened China and said out loud that he would send troops to defend Taiwan. The hell with baby formula and the heck with fossil fuel production, Biden does not care. Joe Biden is the absolute worst. Biden’s presidency is a nightmare.
