Our government can’t “afford to” spend more on healthcare and education

Roughly, this averages out to $290 million every day for 7,300 days. That’s how much money America spent on 20 years of war and nation-building in Afghanistan, according to Brown University’s Costs of War project.

I’ve been around a long time. Our government, the two incompetent political parties we have [we’re essentially allowed], have used the same lies to justify destructive behavior like this…and will continue to do so unless and until the people of the United States rise up and throw the bastards out of office. I ain’t holding my breath. This is a nation of ignorant, deluded sheep!

[OK. I was too pissed-off when I posted this morning. Foot-dragging drives me crazy. We’re way too polite to Congress!]
