    we don't have an army to do it with, besides if we did one they'd probably pelt them with either tomatoes or shit

    yfw they argue “they could be training instead...” but it’s literally a bunch of NCOs sitting around for 8-10 hours wanking their dicks and talking to their buds, do something cool with ur military at least in peace times

    itt: military parade would be cool imo

    When you live in the UK but you want attention so you start throwing stones at America on a Garrys Mod Roleplay forum thread.

    This is the dumbest article I've seen in VERY long time. Just because a single meal costs a few dollars it would take hundreds of thousands of man hours and many many many more millions of dollars to actually deliver the food. 30 million dollars is genuinely nothing to the United States government. If it were that easy, why haven't we just fed every homeless veteran by now?

    Because the government does not give a shit about veterans unless it gets them votes. Look at the VA.

    Then can you explain to me why, say, an insanely rich philanthropist like Bill Gates doesn't just do this all the time?

    The government spends 180 billion dollars for veterans affairs annually which will increase to around 200 billion in 2019, which is more than most countries GDP. You can not tell me that the government just "doesn't give a shit about veterans"

    Money = power

    Yet it has barely any benefit, there's thousands upon thousands of people not being given their benefits and they refuse to switch to computers over paper copies which basically caused a huge cluster fuck, so now it's near impossible to get anything sorted. The US might as well just give the money to charity that benefits veterans, that'd do more good.

    If the United States government operates solely based on profit why aren't we taxed upwards of 80%? I can assure you that NASA and Social Security systems aren't making the government any money, and many other costly agencies that are government run most definitely aren't making the government a single dime.

    This military parade isn't going to make any money either, so I don't understand your point.

    This is completely unrelated. Bill Gates has donated over 50 billion dollars to numerous foundations and if his only goal were power I highly doubt he'd be doing all that.

    Yeah, let's just go ahead and close all the VA hospitals because they're doing nothing, right? A very large amount of veterans benefit greatly off of the VA system we have, not to mention the thousands and thousands of jobs made available because of the VA

    No they work on bribery.


    I'd reccomend joining the petition, as a side note.

    A simple google search proves it's only 8 billion, and he's worth 92.2 Billion, yeah that isn't enough for him to give, at all.

    Didn't say the VA did everything badly, only that it's incredibly insufficiant with the resources it's given.

    So you're against people not being able to have their say, yet you're for communism? I really can't tell which side you're even supporting at this point

    A simple google search proves wrong
    http://time.com/money/4901017/bill-gates-donation-4-6-billion/

    I'll assume you meant ineffective or inefficient but knowing multiple veterans, with some in my close family, they've all received more than satisfactory service. VA hospitals work FOR veterans completely free of charge

    Being against plutocratic corrupt regimes with no difference in choice between the two main political candidates means I'm against people having a say?

    Are you dumb?

    Yeah he didn't even say where he donated it to and the donation was made in the form of stocks. Not a donation. Just a tax avoidance.
