When the US spends more on the military that the next 8(?) countries combined, now they want to really ratchet up the spending. We called in at Route 66 for a hot choccie on Sunday night and while the place is a lot of fun, like Maccers for that matter, I was depressed by the thought of how low Trumpland was sinking.

I give in, it sounds familiar but I can't place it. It does however remind me of the chinese proverb "The palest ink is better than the best memory."
