Darpa's High-Tech Research Budget Slashed By $65 Million To Pay For... School Books For Grade Schools

Well, if our national security satellites are to be re-tasked to spy on extremist penguins and subversive ice-floes, why not take money from Darpa's weapons and defense projects in an "over the horizon redeployment" towards buying Encyclopedia Brown books ?

Smart, tough.

The Democrats love "military spending," because the public supports "military spending," and then they can use the money appropriated for "military spending" to buy yoga mats for those too poor to afford them and friendship bracelets for Islamic Brotherhood.

Why not just go whole hog with this and simply rebrand welfare checks as "hazard pay for service in an economic warzone"?
