    The DoD budget isn't even a 1 trillion dollars to start with, so how are you going to cut 1 trillion from it?

    By "cutoff" are you talking about the upper end of the payroll tax, ~$106k? If so, they don't need to remove it, they just need to adjust it for inflation since 1980 and keep it there by chaining it to inflation or the CPI.

    Cuts should be made when they can.Does the Navy need to spend 26 dollars a gallon on bio-fuel? Do we need to give military aid to nations not friendly to us? Should be we be spending money programs designed to spy on Americans? Should be we wasting money with over seas military bases when those would be better served being along our borders? I am sure there are many other things that defense does not need to spend money on.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I don't know what their budget is but at first Obama took 500 billion and then he wanted 500 billion more........Panetta then the SECDEF testified in congress and asked to cancel the second 500 billion....He said the military could not survive that cut but was turned down. It was televised on CSPAN about a month ago.

    For once I agree with you.....I would cut all foreign aid to the Arabs and get the hell out of those countries......they are not our friends........The only exception would be South Korea.....and Israel.

    Well there's your problem, at least one of them...

    Let me make this clear, the DoD budget has never been 1 trillion dollars, therefore its impossible for Obama to take 1 trillion dollars from it.

    What possible reason am I going to hear as to why I'm wrong I have no idea, I can't even contemplate it, its going to be so God Damn stupid.

    There's no such thing at "across the board" spending cuts. Libs will NEVER agree to cut a dime to their dependent class. If they couldn't give money to their constituents (the lazy, the whiners, the non-producers), not a single one would be elected as even a dog catcher.

    Or maybe they recognized that it is possible to cut the military and still have a military able to do the job it is needed for. In fact, it is nothing at all like Vietnam. In fact military spending went up during most of the Vietnam war. Don't let the facts stand in your way though.
