  What will you not pay a hundred times what the alternative will cost you and when will you pay a hundred times what the alternative will cost you?  A wall and you will.  A C5M and you won't

Using a C5M (Military Transport) to relocate civilians just doesn't make any sense to me.   It's misuse of Military assets.

One of my main pet peeves with the Federal gov't - using Military assets for purposes other than what they were intended.

The main pet peeve is taxes.

It's a (nearly) perfect analogy.  Some things we (taxpayers) are willing to pay for - other things, we aren't.


It's a terrible analogy because you compared:

Something that doesn't save money with something that does save money

as an analogy for

Two things that both save money.

Your analogy falls apart right there

Right, which is why even though I meant it tongue in cheek, your reply didn't make sense.  You said you will fund A to save taxes, but you won't fund B to save taxes
