Hi Mikeyy,

Oh. My. God. Someone needs to tell them damn Republicans to quit funding R&D on our dime!!!!!!

Take a gander at the chart (from AAAS - R&D Budget and Policy Program - Guide to R&D Funding Data - Historical Data )
and tell me that them damn Republicans don't fund R&D like them damn Democrats do! Defense R&D went up under Reagan/Bush I, down under Clinton, up under Bush II, and down under Obama. Non-Defense R&D went down briefly under Reagan/Bush I and then rebounded, stayed flat until the middle of Clinton's second term where it began to rise, and continued to rise under Bush II to his second term, and has remained flat since then. If you're inclined to argue that the Congress was responsible for the funding, then take a look at this chart and see if it really makes any difference:

jabbo you might be right but when things that are need get cut by Dems the GOP leadership when they come into the WH have little choice but to increse some of these items.

Why because they understand that other countries don't stand still. Plus some of these countries are have said they HATE America & want us destoryed.

While the dems want to spend all on socializing America. With little regard for any enemy or their desires.

That said, what might be your reply now? One has to understand these groups are maintained by the military and our dime is to protect us, in most cases. Yes in some they do go overboard, like the costly hammer. Yet to believe they spent this large amount on any hammer is foolish. Some accountent just did a bad job with the books.

Another way to view this is without newer weapons the govt., would have choice but to bring back the draft and waste soldiers lifes as in the world wars or Korea as well as the Nam.

Think about this. Sense the Nam in two wars we have not come close to the number of soldiers who have died. Now why is that?
