Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If you’re going to make bombs and things that blow things up and kill people and you’re going to make them using tax dollars, I guess we should be thankful that the weapons of mass destruction are being sent to go blow people and things up in other countries and not in ours. Still, to what end are the American people taxed and burdened so mightily so that employees at General Dynamics or wherever can ply their craft and continue to make the weapons of war? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mike: Again, scale, folks, scale, scale, scale, scale. This happens on an hourly basis inside Mordor on the Potomac River. You want the real dirt on this? Here we go to the website called Muckety.com. I know this may sound untoward and you may be thinking: Really, you went to a site called Muckety.com to get some poop or some dirt on this? Well, what we were looking for was an explanation or a graphical representation of where and to whom the dough is transferred to. In other words, we know that this is corporatism. I know that this is military corporatism. What that means is, the only reason this money will still be transferred is because there are American jobs that are attached to it. These are make-work jobs.
If you’re going to make bombs and things that blow things up and kill people and you’re going to make them using tax dollars, I guess we should be thankful that the weapons of mass destruction are being sent to go blow people and things up in other countries and not in ours. Still, to what end are the American people taxed and burdened so mightily so that employees at General Dynamics or wherever can ply their craft and continue to make the weapons of war? [mocking] “If we don’t make them, then the Russians will.” Apparently we’re giving them to the Egyptians. We’re not selling them, we’re giving them. If the Russians or the Chinese are stupid enough to give, to gift, to donate billions upon billions of dollars’ worth of military hardware to madmen in the Middle East, then that’s their business. Why should we be the ones on the hook for this?
I was clicking around on this map. If you want to see the map and you just happen to be somewhere where you can get to a computer, go to today’s Pile of Prep and scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page. I had to embed this on the bottom of the page because I didn’t want it to mess with the rest of the wonderful content that is contained in today’s Pile of Prep that you need to read. Pile of Prep is the daily recap of all the stories that we’re going to use to flesh out and make this radio program. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen and you will get to the main graphic at Muckety that shows who is in the pay of whom to get the dough transferred to this military contractor or that military contractor.
Folks, as I was looking at this and clicking around on it, all I could think of was: My God, look how large this web is! Then you click on one of them and you find all the lobbying firms that are attached to this. For example, if I click on the – much American aid to Egypt goes to U.S. defense contractors. It’s defense contractors that get the lion’s share of this, by the bye. This is a wealth transfer again of amazing proportions. The hoi polloi out here are taxed across the amber waves of fuel. The money is laundered through the machinery of Mordor on the Potomac River. Then it is showered upon these people that have curried favor with our almighty federal overlords called defense contractors. The defense contractors then swallow up the dough and employ some people in the making of the weapons of war.
