3338 We know where our priorities are

You can chill with the owls at night, or you can fly with the eagles in the morning,
but likely not both.


Read this article from the Miami Herald:

True cost of Afghan, Iraq wars is anyone’s guess


The averaged-out cost per service member in Bush's wars in Afghanistan and Iraq is now approaching $700,000 per year, while school districts are cutting budgets and firing teachers. One month's war budget could launch six space shuttles.

And in the meantime, Gramma eats Ken-L Ration and Grampa can't afford his blood pressure pills, Mom and Pop can't make the house payments, and Junior can't find a job, and Congress has voted to make that a lot worse.

But don't worry - the jet setters, corporations, and CEOs are doing fine, and they'll take care of us.
