But the rest of government can waste our money so long as the military doesn’t? I think all government waste should be stopped. Why single out the military when they all do it?

I don’t want waste anywhere. I just believe that there’s a great deal of waste in our military that is off limits to talk about for political and pork reasons. Because we want a strong military, because it’s ideologically consistent with most peoples’ views of America, it’s easy to overlook or justify the waste in the military.

And I certainly don’t see the point in, as I said above, worrying about 30 grand in spending on refreshments in a few months from Pelosi or Boehner’s office as we’re flushing billions down the toilet.

In painting, you’re always told to start with big gestures and then worry about detail later.
