Yesterday I had a story in the stack talking about how underfunded the military is and how the budget needed to protect our nation was simply too small. This immediately peaked my interest because of the discussions we've had on this very topic in recent weeks. During those talks, I pointed out the massive amount of waste in the Pentagon.
So to read a story about Pentagon underfunding made me chuckle a little bit. But with all the other news of the day, I never got around to talking about the story.
Then last night I was listening to the radio, and one of the hosts was screaming into the microphone about how unacceptable it was that our military was so unfit to defend us. It was utterly ridiculous. So today I'm going to talk about the military "defense" budget and give you some insights into just how much money is being frittered away while operational readiness suffers.
Then it's on to other news. We're going to hit on North Korea and the recent Georgia bill to protect religious liberty. It's a full show. Listen now.
