-that the USA has NOT been in a war for ONLY 17 years out of the 247 years since it’s foundation (1776)?
-USA has over 800 military bases around the world. Russia has 21. China has 1. Yet Russia and China are the big bad bullies?
America is the biggest war hawk in the world- LITERALLY.
And WHY is this important? Bc ALL that MONEY, BILLIONS of dollars spent overseas mean we have “no money” for us, for the poor, for the middle class, for fixing collapsing roads, bridges, etc. All means of help and social services, cut cut cut and cut.
Americans- We need help here in East Palestine, OHIO. People don’t have drinking water and the air is toxic!
USA- Can’t. We have “no money”
Ukraine- We want money for war.
USA- OK, no problem! Here’s 75 BILLION!!
Americans- We need help here in Lahaina, Hawaii. Our homes and children got burnt.
USA- Nah. We have “no money”
Israel- We want money for war.
USA- OK, no problem! Here’s 14.3 MORE BILLION, on top of the regular 3.3 BILLION we send to Israel each and every year!
Americans- We still don’t have drinking water in Detroit.
USA- Fuck you poor people
Americans- Everything is flooded. We need help in New Orleans.
USA- Fuck you poor people. Always asking for a handout.
Americans- The hurricane flooded and destroyed our homes in Puerto Rico (they are still Americans btw)
USA- Here, I’mma throw you some paper towels! Problem fixed!
Americans- 60% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck.
USA- Fuck you poor people, always complaining. Just get a better job!
Americans- but…most jobs pay shit
USA- Well, it’s YOUR fault for not being born rich
No, this isn’t about politics. You can believe whatever you want about the Russia-Ukraine war, or the Israel-Palestine war. This is about the USA sending BILLIONS of dollars overseas, meanwhile, Americans are fucking suffering. The poor are getting poorer, the middle class is getting squeezed more and more, and SO many ppl are struggling. And ALL of our money is going to WAR, WAR and MORE WAR.
As stated above, America has NOT been in a war for ONLY 17 years out of the 247 years since it’s foundation. No money to HELP actual Americans who desperately need help but plenty of money for WAR.
Yes, I am angry bc this means I am poor with hardly any way out. Being educated and smart means shit in current times. Jobs in my field that used to pay 80K pre-2001 are now 40K-50K. Jobs that used to pay 40-50K are now 20-30K. Yeah, go America!! -_-
