Or, unlike feeble minded anti-military folks who could care less if the military crumbled into shit, we could emphasize partially on a well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State as the constitution calls for. It doesn't necessarily mean war and combat, unless they must be used. They should however be used on finding and KILLING Osama bin Laden and destroying terrorist camps. Unless you'd rather sit around assuming you're totally safe, knowing that they have two more attacks on us in mind.

Which is where I said 1/3 of the money - $1,000,000,000 would be of great use if you read my post properly.

How is any of that going to keep violent people off the streets?
Not sure what your problem is

I didn't say any of my choices would.

But money towards education, inner city programs, etc would reduce crime. Money towards Africa could stop another breeding ground for terrorists.

There are a million things in this world that need funding before prisons or military.

Enabling me to distract or scare the American voter enough to ignore failed domestic policies.
I’d use a tidbit to bribe a black reporter to pilferage enough of the black vote in Ohio to ensure election. Said election would enable us to continue to plunder and reward corporate greed, and environmental polluters in the name of National Security.


300 billion is a small investment for trillions of dollars that will be looted from the working stiffs.
right, like thats ever gonna happen.. uhh wait a minute

No problem, but if you didn't want me to respond to your post, you shouldn't have responded to mine.

Thank you,

I'd have scientists use the $300 billion to develop Star Trek food replicators and end world poverty.

Let's see...

$2,000,000 on a big house for my folks.
$2,000,000 on a big house for me.
$100,000 on a car of my choice.
$150,000,000,000 to Africa/AIDS
$5,000,000,000 towards improvement of public schools in America

Put the other $144,995,900,000 into bank and spend when needed.
