Military has too much money

By From page A6 | August 28, 2014

Last week’s news of the transfer of a Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected vehicle from the U.S. military to the Davis police force was rather upsetting. This is Davis, not ISIS !

When the military can give away 435 armored vehicles, 432 MRAPs, 94,000 machine guns and 533 airplanes, they clearly have way, way too much money. Mind you, these things were given away, not sold, and thus represent a horrendous waste of taxpayers’ money (again).

This is not right. If they have too much money, why don’t they bail out the cash-starved U.S. Postal Service instead ?
