Yogi Bear–We don’t need missiles, we need morsels

Yogi Bear–We don’t need missiles, we need morsels

Here is a great connection to this Yogi Bear episode in connection to what is going on today as my friend Frank clearly stated:

A few minutes in we see very much still the same conflict on  defense vs social spending (classic Yogi quotes “they spend billions on missiles and nothing for us…we don’t need missiles, we need morsels!”, followed by the Ranger’s Heritage Foundationesque, by-your-bootstraps speech—(which you will note both he and Yogi dismiss as hokum in the following segments!)

By comparison here are comments made by Jill Stein of the Green Party’s Shadow Cabinet on the passage of the defense budget yesterday:

“We cannot both feed the hungry and feed our children, feed our elders, feed us and fill this absolutely bottomless pit of the military machine,” she said.

(Recall now Yogi….”we don’t need missiles, we need morsels!”)
