22 agencies and programs Trump's budget would eliminate

Source: The HILL

President Trump on Monday unveiled his budget proposal for the 2019 fiscal year, which makes significant cuts to some federal agencies and projects as part of an effort to slash the federal deficit by $3 trillion over the next 10 years.

As part of that effort, Trump has proposed eliminating funding for several agencies, grant programs and institutes.

While lawmakers are unlikely to enact most of Trump's proposal, here's a look at some of the centers and agencies the White House wants to abolish

I don't know if listing the 22 agencies would violate the 4 paragraph protocol; but here are some of them Trump is eliminating...

No 5 - Before and After school programs. No 10 - Global Climate Change Initiative. No. 14 - Public Broadcasting. No 17 - National Endowment for the Arts.

14. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which funds public television and radio stations including Public Broadcasting Service and NPR.

<...>

16. The Legal Services Corporation, a nonprofit that provides civil legal assistance for low-income individuals.

17. The National Endowment for the Arts, which funds American artists and projects with grants.

18. The National Endowment for the Humanities, which provides grants to American humanities scholars.


These alone seem to be targets every time a Republican is elected to the Presidency.

thus my statement -

When Obama was in, he had to resurrect some of these when Shrub killed them... The CBP became a sore point however, due to Sesame Street, so it was essentially left intact (although damaged because now HBO runs new Sesame Street episodes and those without a subscription have to wait until they are finally released on PBS).

Including self-preservation.

Its why poor white soldiers who made up the vast majority of the confederate army fought for a few wealthy landowners to preserve slavery/white supremacist identity.

Hatred and ignorance to preserve sanctity of bigot culture above all else.

40. Remember the Confederate States of America had a draft.


A book that might interest yall is "Bitterly Divided." Its premise is that most white Southerners didn't want to secede, but (as usually happens in any century) the 1% or 5% or whatever shoved it through.

57. Most soldiers were volunteers

The union had a draft too, but most soldiers on both sides were volunteers.

By the time the south instituted the draft in 1862, they had hundreds of thousands of volunteers - far too many to manage.

You might be citing that % from the book, but it's impossible to know and secession is a different issue.

Its historically accurate to say the vast majority of confederate soldiers believed in preservation of slaves as property, assumed white supremacy, and saw legal equality with blacks as a direct assault on core beliefs.

54. Holy Shit!!!

#8 Advanced Projects Research Agency

The name has flipped from ARPA to DARPA a few times...

Let's see... is there anything around today that might not be here without ARPA.

Well, back in the mid-1970s I took a course at a university near mine (state rivals) because they offered one of the nation's first computer networking courses. We wrote code for BBN TIMPs and wrote papers on the subject... titled something like "Much has been written about the ARPAnet, we are here to write a little more" ( anyone riding the kazoo bus now knows who I am ).

ARPAnet... hmmm... let's see, is that still a thing? yeah... it is... it is now known as the Internet.

If it had been invented by a corporation, we either wouldn't have it or it would cost a f'ing fortune. The Internet is YOUR tax dollars at work.

I worked at NASA in the 1990s... part of my job was to give research grants to universities to develop technologies that might be useful. I used the NASA Office of Education to get those funds to useful things (at least I thought they were useful). The first one I personally granted was to UC Berkeley for a Computer Science project which had the unlikely title of "A Taxonomy of Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Disks". NASA gave a prof and his grad students around $100,000 to create a hardware Redundant Array" device... currently known in the multi-BILLION computer storage industry as a RAID device ( they changed inexpensive to independent because IBM objected - IBM not having at the time any "inexpensive" disk drives for sale ) I didn't "invent" RAID anymore than Al Gore "invented" the internet... but I was responsible for early funding and the formalization of the mathematics behind RAID technology.

Over the next few years I made grants for things like:

1. light wave switching - using lasers in fiber optic cables to create speed of light switching mechanisms by using interference patterns generated by two laser beams interacting with each other.

2. WDM and DWDM in fiber optic communications - WDM - Wave Division Multiplexing and Dense Wave Division Multiplexing... this is the idea of using many independent wavelength lasers to use the same fiber optic cable to increase the amount of information one can transmit over a single fiber pair.

3. GFS - Global File System - A single shared file system between a cluster of computers... This was one of the first true parallel file system and lives on today - 20 years later - as part of Redhat Linux.

Each of these grants was around $100,000. All using the agency that Trump now wants to kill... billions and billions of ROI on your tax dollars.

And ARPA... no... they can't kill that
