Obscene: Navy's New Revolting 'Wonder' Material

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The US Navy has announced that it developed a synthetic slimy material that can be shot to seal mouths of their enemies — and much more — by studying a snake-like fish that controls and kills enemies. With part of its multi-billion dollar budget, that consumes over one-third of all taxes paid by Americans, the Navy researchers studied and replicated the creepy hagfish’s built-in slime weapon that it shoots at sharks.

When attacked, hagfish shoot a slimy substance at their enemies. That slime can seal mouths and clog gills of their enemy. Now, the US Navy has figured how to synthesize the slime – an achievement they say could do everything from repelling sharks to providing ballistics defense.​

The Navy’s 2017 funding submission includes $17.3 billion for research and development supporting the Navy-Marine Corps team of the future through technological advantages designed to counter adversaries in all environments and across all spectrums. The Department of the Navy budget includes a $55 billion (Base and OCO) request for operations and maintenance, emphasizing the balance of today’s needs with future priorities when operating forward in an ever-evolving security environment. That budget is part of the $583 billion (Base and OCO) defense budget President Barack Obama submitted to Congress the same day. 

“With politicians increasingly wedded to the construction of advanced killing technology as a result of lobbying by defense contractors and arms manufacturers, the U.S. economy is becoming more militaristic than ever,” states “War Is A Lie” author David Swanson.

“The most common justification is that we cannot allow America to ‘become weak.’ We face too many threats around the world, our super-patriots proclaim, and any sign of scaling our militarism will be a green light for ‘terrorism.’

People making the claim that our “defense is lacking” are either, as Bill Maher once but it, “lying or insane,” asserts Swanson.

“The reality is that ‘the United States spends more on defense than the next seven countries combined.”"

“The idea that there are credible threats to the United States that can be met by spending more money is nothing more than sly tactic used to justify these inflated budgets, further enriching corporate executives and creating more of what we don’t need,” says Swanson.

“The public has to be riled up into jingoistic hysteria every several years, otherwise they would not tolerate the fact that their tax dollars are being used to develop advanced weaponry that not only does not help anyone domestically, but also devastates lives and entire countries overseas.”

Swanson calculates what could be done if military spending returned to that of 2001:

If U.S. military spending were merely returned to 2001 levels, the savings of $213 billion per year could meet the following needs:

  • End hunger and starvation worldwide — $30 billion per year.
  • Provide clean drinking water worldwide — $11 billion per year.
  • Provide free college in the U.S. — $70 billion per year (according to Senate legislation).
  • Double U.S. foreign aid — $23 billion per year.
  • Build and maintain a high-speed rail system in the U.S. — $30 billion per year.
  • Invest in solar and renewable energy as never before — $20 billion per year.
  • Fund peace initiatives as never before — $10 billion per year.

That would leave $19 billion left over per year with which to pay down debt.

You may say I’m a dreamer, but this is life and death. War kills more by how the money isn’t spent than by how it is spent.

      But wait. Isn’t America’s biggest problem Mexicans and the border? Isn’t hat what media wants you to think – and so you do? Tragic.

        I have lived in the same town, for almost 30yrs, now, have been a teacher, employer, and businessman. All of my neighbors have not been displaced on a level playing field. :roll:

        You’ve given us a figure, in the billions.

        You’re saying it takes 1 year, to pay this.

        The debt is estimated in the trillions.

        It’s an odious debt.

        • Paul Brown

          The amount was per year. As other needs are met, that amount could be increased.

      • Geeper

        Wall of hagfish slime should do the trick.

    • Pink Slime

      Yes, yes. Without research women would not have tampons, lipstick, nice clothes and shoes and would be like Muslim women.

      Beaten, barefoot and pregnant all the time with their clitoris removed.

      Wouldn’t be able to get on the internet and use white-man made computers and their brilliant communication systems and hubs and sit and drink tea (white man manufactured) and berate the white man for bringing them out of this wretched TURD world status worldwide except in America and the West.

        madame curie or Lise Meitner? you don’t know?

        • Black Humor

          Madame Curie continued the research her husband started, so yes, a scientist, but not exactly the shining example of female genius some would like to think. One also piously forgets the role of Otto Hahn while talking about Meitner… :twisted:

        • wiseoldlady

          PinkSlime YOU ARE WRONG….better research some history….!!! There were many women that invented items STILL IN USE TODAY……but BECAUSE OF THE MALE EGO the laws did NOT ALLOW PATENTS IN WOMENS NAMES. So those women had to put THEIR inventions into the hands of males. You would be surprised how many BRILLIANT women there are. Behind EVERY successful male is a woman, as the saying goes….a mother, a wife, a sister, an aunt, a grandmother…… Stop insulting ALL females because there are plenty of absolutely beyond imagination stupid males. I am a landlord and have seen my fair share of unbelievably stupid males.

          • Pink Slime

            Yes, yes. However, I wouldn’t cross a women if she had an invention.

            Case in point. The women who supposedly invented the windshield wiper and was told it was useless (I think) when she went and applied a patent for it. She put it away in a drawer.

            Well, we all know what happened after. Somebody wanted it claimed for themselves.

            But you women forget that all what you have now that you take for granted was invented through the hard work of WHITE man, but look how they berate him in giant parades with the clothes and shoes and nice roads and even the mic to berate him was created by the white man.

            Not to mention the FOOL belly of food in them was brought by the white man. Women, Negroes, TURD world countries all live off the white man. Yet, they all hate him and want him gone.

            Would they all rather be naked and starving? And the women would get raped by the latter two they adore so much.

            And most men don’t respect a landlady. It’s not that they are stupid. :lol:

          • DISPENSER

            I will never forget the lovely, and intelligent Hedy Lamar!

      • Paul Brown

        Are you saying only white males can bring about improvements? If so, are you aware of why that might be true?

      • Paul Brown

        I guess you’re pissed because the women’s march was so much larger than Trump’s inauguration attendance. There was nothing in this article related to male of female delusions of grandeur. Get over it.

        Incidentally, there are lots of women CEOs, scientists, Nobel Prize winners, and even military officers and national leaders, and there would be still more without misogynists like you.

        You continue living up to your moniker. If you thought better of yourself you might think better of other white male losers like yourself.

      JDP…China speends so little because of industrial, theft and spying. Clinton’s gave them so much of our technical abilities in the 80′s they don’t need a DARPA OR LOCKEED WHEN THEY CAN STEAL THE BLUE PRINTS OR INTELLECTUAL INFO.

    • Andy

      strangely, it’s pollyticians who start wars, maybe we should stop wasting money on the military and just send the pollyticians to fight their own wars

      win/win for us all,, no more war AND no more pollyticians

      • Deborah Dupre

        I’ve heard this great idea before now. Maybe it will be the 100th monkey thing – and it will suddenly really happen. Yes, you can say I’m a dreamer….
