From Huffpost comment

The Military Industrial Congressional Complex is on the way to certain extinction. Replete with hierarchies that are exceedingly wasteful of human talent and energies, intertwined with toxic finance, codependent with political structures that are losing democratic legitimacy fast, a form of post-capitalist, decentralized governance must, sooner or later, emerge. These fascinating developments are bound to turn the autocratic Soviet-like megaliths of today into curiosities that students of political economy, business studies et al will marvel at in the future, just like school children marvel at dinosaur skeletons at the Natural History museum.

“The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance of foreign lands should be curtailed  lest the Republic become bankrupt.  People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.”  Marcus Tillius Cicero, 55 BC

And as Jester X on Slope has stated so elequently "Get Ass Long Miners" now
