Well $600 million of it was going to brown people, so are you surprised?

600 million dollars was going to help US citizens. That tells me that even if there wasn't an alleged "border crisis," Puertoricans and other brown skinned US citizens would be targeted by Trump and his minions. Trust me, if I see whitey on the side of the road needing help, they'll stay on the side of the road.

Trump wants a race war. Congrats on playing into his hands.

Just cut aid to other countries to fund our own disaster aid. How hard is it to find the money to pay for it when we have money going OUT.

OK, let's start with aid going to Israel.

I'm fine with that Danni. I'm fine with every time we say we don't have the money to cut foreign aid.

I've said it before - the wars are over. Close the bases, bring home the troops.
Just the troop income could be spent at home. That would boost local economies.

We don't need to defend anyone outside the US.

Start with Germany. Merkel says America is an adversary, so she should have no objections.

The base isn't there for Germany. It's there for us so we can project power in the European Theater.

Oh wait, I forgot. Russia is now our friend because they illegally help Trump. My bad.

Righties just want to further destroy our alliances because that's what Trump does. For them, closing bases has nothing to do with fiscal conservatism; it's about blindly following their cult leader while he weakens us abroad.

Europe needs to defend Europe. Do you know why they can afford all the wonderful things they have?
Because they don't bother with defense budgets.

The UN is a joke - The US is the one the contributes the most for what? World Peace?

Do you see world peace since the UN was established? Do you see the US as the good guy in the world?
Do they?

This isn't about fiscal conservatism. This is about getting the hell out of other countries.
This is about them being responsible neighbors and not expecting the US to be a human shield.

I'm sick of dead US soldiers and US soldiers being blamed for what happens between two countries - and we're not one of them.

We can have trade allies - but US soldiers is not part of the trade deal.

"I'm sick of dead US soldiers and US soldiers being blamed for what happens between two countries - and we're not one of them." Hmmm, I guess all those US GI's got in the middle of the entire Middle East and Afghanistan because we were breaking up a fight or something. Quit invading sovereign countries with US soldiers.

How's it feel to be so dumb you dance like Putin wants you to without you getting anything out of it?
