DUMB AWFUL

Taking Money From Children.

Building a wall without Congressional approval means you have to take the money from somewhere else. The Pentagon just released a list of where some of that money was originally planned to go. And it includes…wait for it…wait for it…

 $1.2 billion for schools, childcare centers and other facilities for military children

And that includes kids of fighter pilots, who live in the arctic (you know near Russia) who won’t have a school to go to.

Alaska’s Eielson Air Force Base is slated to get $22.5 million to build a school to enroll 240 additional children “in a remote arctic climate” when the jet begins operations there.

The current school serves 108 and has an “extensive waiting list,” according to Air Force budget documents which say that if a school is not built “children will be turned away,” “directly impacting support of the F-35 mission, morale, and welfare.”

    You speak of making America great again. How are you suppose to do that if you’re denying the children an education.
