    Trump was proud that he could commission an new aircraft carrier costing over 13 billion ( the budget was exceeded by 3 billion) also the idiot want to expand the army budget by even more than during the campaign. It is Hitler all over again, built the Tirpitz and Bischmark again. But yeah there is barely a budget for healthcare or foodstamps or bridges etc. let alone all kinds of social services. I just want to bet that the maintenance alone on this huge rust bucket will be millions per month. Then over ten/twenty years it will be parked somewhere, so the rats can enjoy themselves. Of course considering that our "Commander in shit" does not start new wars all over the place. If the guy feels he's "loosing" or close to "impeachment" he may start wars just as an diversion tactic. Others before him did that as well to boost their approval rates.

    Yes we are heading to an Hitler like situation ( spent it all on war toys, but not the well being of the people), especially if you hear his screaming speeches, which sound exactly like Hitler did.

    It's all about MONEY. Invest heavily into something where you control the outcomes and tell the masses that you're making them safer. It's not stealing if you're wearing a suit. SMH.

    Such hypocrisy, I watched a news clip of this ship's commissioning, days after I read a story in my local paper about homeless veterans homes closing or cutting back in my state because of Trump and the GOP. These people claim to support veterans while they're cutting veterans services here. I'm pissed off.

    Federal Cuts Lead Wisconsin Veterans Agency To Close Homeless Housing Programs

    "WDVA Secretary Daniel Zimmerman sent a letter to veteran advocacy groups on July 14 saying federal funding for the Veteran Housing and Recovery Programs at King and Union Grove will end in September. The state will continue to fund the programs through December if needed but it's not feasible to continue them beyond that."

    But our government can pay for a huge ship costing many billions of dollars. Damned hypocrites.

    Still nobody addressing how a ship with the most modern expensive warfare defense system got rammed by huge tub going in a straightline. Aegis should have destroyed that container ship let alone get the Fitzgerald out of the way. No excuse. Treason? Our Navy can be destroyed by merchant ships??

    Chet don't forget you are paying for all that shit; thus you won't get decent healthcare because of it. Sorry to say all that "navy junk" does not help making this country safe; the worlds oceans and seas are not "owned" by the US. Conflicts arise because of our way of thinking that we rule the seas. Sorry we should stop playing policeman for the world and built even bigger ships to do so, while the people here don't get social services etc. because of it.
