I’m with you. Considering all that he’s been up against since the day he took office I try to support him as much as I possibly can, but I am also a small government person at heart and watching this bloat continue makes me crazy. I think the Space Force is a good idea and a necessary one. I know it will take a lot of money to build it up, but I view it as an investment in the future of America’s security. Everything else in this spending bill should have gotten the veto. If it wasn’t defense related it had no business being in there.
Why did we just raise the smoking age to 21 in a defense spending bill? The hypocrisy in that is we are going to ask 18 year old kids to fight and die for the country but we are going to tell them they have to wait to smoke or dip until they’re 21. We can’t be a fierce and independent nation while also building a nanny state. I smoked and chewed plenty between the ages of 18 and 21 when I was in the USMC. I cut that crap out when I went to college.
