That said, I really didn't have problem with the original post besides the annoying use of the third person, other than anyone use used the words "unfunded liability" is either a flim-flam artist or the mark. I suspect the OP is the mark.

The Democrats need to start talking about the "unfunded liability" of the Chickenhawks stated policy of "War without End" and steadily increasing defense spending. If we looked at Defense and the follow-on costs of the Veterans Administration in the same way as Social Security (i.e., the present value of the next 75 years worth of benefits paid), the cost of the military industrial complex and corporate welfare for the highly paid consultants in Northern Virgina would be 3 or 4 times the "unfunded liabilities" of Social Security.

Actually I've done a few post on this subject also. All the below posts were about as popular on RECF as this thread has been on this board.

I about ready to pull the plug on these boards. Much too much knee jerk responses.
