    Exactly He made the case that SMARTER SPENDING instead of blind spending on lobbyists will get you more and cut waste.

    Decades ago I was shocked to see what the universities were paying for the guest speakers fees.
    It's a great gig if you can get it.

    I see..... You guys thinks it's okay to waste money on the military instead of college, which could lift some out of poverty, and end their dependency on the subsidies you all love to complain about. There's a word for that. What is it again..... Oh yeah I remember now. It's hypocrisy.

    I think some of us are making the point that if we FIRST do a better job on overall budgeting our spending across the board we could probally afford to do both.

    I would love to see FREE college, but politicians on both sides have a lot of us guarded and skeptical against it because of their history of waste and theft when they get involved in such things. And of course when they inflate it we get to pay for it.

    And pay tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars for a worthless speech from some sort of celebrity that yields no return whatsoever.

    I'm making stuff up? Okay Jack.

    As for your second part. Shall we debate the issue on the military g.i. bill disproportionately affecting the poor again?

    How about we do away with the all volunteer military and make it mandatory for all? Even the wealthiest of children. No exceptions period!

    It breaks the cycle of dependency. It pays for itself, but these guys missed the point of our argument. They're too blinded by their prejudices against those less fortunate

    The military only wants the best. Drafting didn't give them that.

    Drafting DId keep society more disciplined and respectful tho. Every male learned teamwork and his role. Since the draft ended, the nation's underpinnings of a stable family are collapsing. I'm for mandatory service for all of some type.

    My, you Do resent anyone you think has a penny more than you! !!!!!

    I resent greed and hypocrisy. I loathe the hypocrisy from the self proclaimed Christian Right.
