So feel free to make up another imaginary argument you want me to make because it is easier to deal with the things you wish i had said instead of those i have said. Just don't expect me to pretend i actually did your absurd claims. It is time to pay the bills, and that means paying people to sit around the full salary of a soldier is in need of ending. you can play the blame game and try to distract from that necessity by pointing to other places that should be cut, but that is just the same old finger pointing and distraction used whenever someone sees cuts they don't like. It is why nothing gets done and we continue along with the same old problems. I don't think the article is wrong for suggesting that something be done about pissing money away. The more places we can make efficient the better off we will be.
