    Peace Dividend. I'm not sure that we have ever had one. Reagan's possible peace dividend was squandered on corporate welfare for the MIC Star Wars. Bush I's simply vanished. Obama's partly vanished and partly funded an expansion and/or inception of other wars. We might have had one after WWII, but I suspect that the Marshall Plan ate most of it, and I'm not sure about Korea.

    That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --
