No sure why welfare should come first when we outspend the remainder of the world in military spending, and likely underspend compared to most of the world in welfare.

IMHO, welfare has become a hammock instead of a safety net for many. You've seen enough of my posts describing my work days to know I see it every freaking day.

Also, look at the countries with welfare system of any significance. They are in economic trouble. Many more would be if they had to spend for their own defense instead of relying on the USA to take care of them.

Face it, I'm more Spartan and you're more Athenian. I'll fight the Battle of Thermopylae and you can debate the arts.
