Defense "Cut" Debunking.

Sane journalists are trying their best to assure the American public that, contrary to the claims of some Republicans, Barack Obama is increasing the defence budget, not cutting it.

However, small matters such as facts haven't yet reached the hallowed halls of Fox News where Obama is "slashing" the defence budget.

I've an idea. If the right wing are always going to claim that he is "slashing" the defence budget, even as he increases it, why doesn't he actually slash the bloody thing?

Give the military industrial complex a bloody nose and give Fox News something to actually cry over. Use the money towards giving Americans a proper health system and sit back and watch as right wingers all over the country take heart attacks from the shock.

As my mother used to say, "You might as well be hung for a sheep as for a lamb." If they are always going to attack you no matter what you do, you might as well aggressively pursue a progressive agenda and give all that Republican hate a purpose.
