Defund the police by 33.8%

Oppressed groups are frequently placed in the situation of being listened to only if we frame our ideas in the language that is familiar to and comfortable for a dominant group. This requirement often changes the meaning of our ideas and works to elevate the ideas of dominant groups.

2. But they score military leftovers for free

...if they engage in some nonsensical anti-terror stuff, if I recall correctly. Which is why you see ludicrous terrorism charges sometimes.

So we’ve got to end that practice somehow.

3. They Pay For Shipping?

Don't know it for sure, but I can't envision the military saying "Come take it.", then paying for shipping.
Prohibit funds used to transport.
Same effect. Assuming of course, my guess is correct.
