What does a path forward to divest the United States from its war economy look like? Can we, as a nation, break our addiction to militarism? These are just some of the questions leading experts from around the country tackle in the Town Hall, a joint project by CODEPINK, Free Speech TV and Manhattan Neighborhood Network.

Khanna.jpgHosted by our own Ariel Gold, the CODEPINK: Town Hall on Militarism discusses the costs of militarism, weapons and war, and examines the effect and workings of the U.S. military-industrial complex, before looking at what work is taking place in the U.S. and around the world to end militarism and build a more just and peaceful world. The lively conversation features a message from Representative Ro Khanna panelists William Hartung, director of the Weapons and Securities Project at the Center for International Policy; Ciara Taylor, membership manager of The People’s Forum; Ann Wright, former U.S. Army Colonel and U.S. diplomat; and Angelo Pinto, senior attorney working with The Advancement Project’s Ending Schoolhouse to Jailhouse Track and Justice Project.

    I have never seen such asinine stupidity as I’ve seen here. The only thing I do agree is the reduction of the military around the world. Let the UN take care of it, leave us out. Otherwise keep a strong standing military presence on US soil. Do you think holding hands and singing Kum Bai Ya will instantly cause humanity to think about sugar plums and puppy dogs? Get your heads out of your asses and see mankind for what it is, killing machine. It’s in our makeup to kill what we don’t understand or just for the sheer pleasure!!!! It’s just too bad that when we wipe ourselves out of existence, we’ll be taking Mother Gaia and every other species on this planet along with us. Fucking idiots!!!!

    The Yankee evil empire is in trouble. It has trouble maintaining more than 900 hundreds military bases around the world. The U.S. government. in order to be able to afford the very high cost of its military bases it must tax the American people in more than one way with rising tax cost. The result of this is an American working and middle class that can not seem to be able to make it financially and both husband ad wife, daughters and sons have to work to share the expense on the high cost of living. Close to half the nation’s federal budget goes to financing the military/industrial complex. The other half of the federal budget is hardly enough to maintain the country in good standing. The state government now receive less and less of federal payouts and are forced to increased property taxes, sales taxes, business taxes, and selling of lands to private owners. It is said that Social Security is now broke. It is no surprise since the federal government beginning with Ronald Reagan has been borrowing from SS but not paying back. That money belonged the working people of this country for they paid into it with their sweat and blood.
    To add insult to injury in 2008-2010 the biggest banks (Morgan Chase, Citibank, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Goldman Sacks) defrauded the American people in the tune of trillions of dollars with the conniving approval of the U.S. Congress which shows clearly and without a shred of a doubt that the U.S. government is a government of the rich, by the rich, and for the rich. Wall street bankers did in 1986 and again in 2008 thanks to deregulation o the mafia banking oligarchy. The Wall Street mafia had their men in the White House (Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, Obama, and now multibillionaire neo-fascist Donald Trump. The public debt has risen to 21 trillion dollars and going up every second. What is the solution to this madness? The solution is to closed down all foreign military bases and bring the troops home and stop meddling into other nation’s affairs. And above all the banking industry has to be nationalized and the criminal debt abolished. For this to happened progressive politicians who are not beholden to big money have to be elected and then maybe it will happened The abolishment of this two party system with the creation of a peoples’ party would be the ideal thing for this to happen. Lets be realistic.

    I will be watching. I shared. This needs to stop. Stop funding the killing and rape of innocence.
    Time to really rise up and everyone come together all over. We are all Sisters and Brothers.
