The defense budget will be bigger, but it won't make us any more safe.

More defense budget, more weapons, more guns, more War, LESS safely. Obviously, any healthy person can see that and the insanity of the Trump brief.

S&N / the scary part of Trump's victory is the gullibility of our society to pin their hopes on such a crass and belligerent PITA! Everyone would like to live a good life. Anyone who believed that Trump could get them there scares the bejeebers out of me!!! I think most of the planet can see that he is a dangerous unpredictable malignant narcissist. ~what must they think of US ???

54 billion in crease in ,military spending. Hmmm? Sounds like the military needs to build miniature bases all around the US. Make them as self sustaining as possible with methane capture for the sewerage, solar hot water, PV, super insulated against the heat and cold and connected them to the US highway system, Of course, the highway system has to be upgraded to connect all these mini bases. Then to utilize these bases there has to be hospitals for the war wounded and trauma victims. There will be the need to house these vets and families. This will mean that there will have to be schools for retraining these vets to fill all the jobs that Mr. Drumpf will be bring back to the US. Attached to the training facilities will have to be child care and training for the older children, this goes on. But, do see where I am going with this?

Why are you being the sore losers. America voted him in and now the people who didnt are complaining.

The increase in military spending is intended to protect the 1% from all comers, including and especially the American "underclass" of poor, working poor, minorities, and yes, even the middle class, which will be pushed further and further toward the bottom. When they say America, Americans and America wants, they are talking about themselves, not us.

The upper classes need to feed. Are you an hors-d'oeuvre or a part of the main course? Donald has created the banquet, with the House of Representatives waiting on the tables. Bon Appetite Donald, Mitch, Steve and Jared.

"clueless" - obviously, some haven't wised up the to the game of tricks, and 'alternative facts' being served up to the hopelessly gullible { including far too many voters = US } Ignorance is a dangerous state of mind.
Nothing in the world is more dangerous than a sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. ~Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929–1968)
The recipe for perpetual ignorance is: Be satisfied with your opinions and content with your knowledge. ~Elbert Hubbard (1856–1915)
To be ignorant of one’s ignorance is the malady of ignorance. ~Amos Bronson Alcott (1799–1888)
Nothing is worse than active ignorance. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749–1832)
- Donald Trump spoke with passion these words: "I love the uneducated!"
