PLEASE READ-> House panel: Don't even think about more base closings
From USA Today:
This little story might otherwise have gone unnoticed today but I think its implications are terribly important. Think about it- we're living though a time in America where austerity cuts (whether they're called that or not) are affecting the lives of almost every American at every age: From education and nutrition for the young to the security net for the old, and everyone else in between.
And yet behold the neat little wall these insects are attempting to construct around the military in order to prevent those same cuts from affecting it.
Please consider this, not just in the specific context in which it is presented, but as a view port into our future under austerity cuts and how you and I will become more and more affected by them while the Military Industrial Complex will safely remain cocooned behind legislative walls.
Some might see this as an isolated event. I see it as prophesy.
