The amount of money that the US spends on the military is insane. Ask anyone that does the purchasing for a nuclear base - a screwdriver might be upwards of $2300.00. If that weren’t offensive enough, we are currently spending close to $1,000,000,000,000.00 on fighter jets that are neither necessary nor that contribute at all to our military readiness.
What’s the teabagger/republican solution?
Why, cut food stamps, of course.
(Note: we spend 8.25% of what we spent on one type of unnecessary jet alone on food stamps. Military expenditures like jets are expendables, not economic investments. Food stamps actually grow the GDP and function as an investment. So, not only are they cutting from a valuable program, but they’re reducing the long term financial stability of the country and costing the budget money. Net negative accounting: the GOP excels at it.)

Imagine the baby that would result from a night of passion between Ebenezer Scrooge (before the spirits changed his ways) and Mr. Krabs from Spongebob. Now imagine that baby grew up and married the baby that would result from a night of passion between Yzma from the Emperor’s New Groove and Mr. Burns from the Simpsons. Now imagine the newlyweds had a baby of their own, and that baby was raised aboard a Ferengi Starship, where she was tutored in empathy and compassion by Lord Voldemort. Now imagine that baby grew up and someone told her that any opinions she might have or conclusions she might reach are based on objective logic and reason, and that anyone who disagrees with her is simply being irrational. Now multiply that person’s greed and heartlessness by 100 and you’ll begin to see something that comes close to resembling Ayn Rand.
