The Military Cuts Back

As a result of the failure of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction to do its job, which was a direct result of the failure of Congress as a whole to do its job, which - in turn - was a direct result of our insistence on electing politically rigid ass clowns to public office, your government is going to have to cut back. Many things we've been used to will go the way of the dodo, the manual typewriter, spats, and principled statesmanship. The various agencies of our government are already making plans to cope with greatly reduced budgets, and the Department of Defense is no exception. Here are a few of the experimental, low-cost alternatives to expensive weapons systems that are now being introduced to your Armed Forces as they prepare to meet the latest enemy ...

The Army will get leaner, meaner, and quicker to deploy as it gets rid of those heavy and expensive armored vehicles:

The Coast Guard will continue to do its part to protect us from drug smugglers and to rescue those in distress at sea ... just not quite as impressively:

The Navy will also have to figure out how to project power on the cheap ...

And the Air Force will do its part, employing the latest generation of low-tech precision targeting systems:

Perhaps it's time to save money on the national level by embracing the concept of Crap Technology to augment the Crap Government we already have.

It can't hurt any more than the Crap Economic Policies the Republicans and Democrats are already peddling.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.
