  •  Simple math,..... $1 million dollars = 25 people (0+ / 0-)

    making $40,000 annually.

    $40,000 equals $20 per hour type jobs.

    $40 billion dollars spent on war equals 1 million jobs that pay $40,000 each year.

    These numbers do not take into account the money being spent before the new 40,000 troops are sent.

    These numbers do not take into account the post war cost of caring for the injured.

    These numbers do not take into account federal income taxes, state income taxes, city income taxes, social security taxes, medicare taxes, etc. pertaining to employees wages.

    War is a sickness, a pathetic attempt to control, a lame excuse to kill, crush and destroy humans and property.

    We are going to have 40,000 new troops plus the troops already deployed plus a greater number of private contractors to find and kill 100 fucking idiots?

    Let's face some terrible truths, any nation that is so fucked up should FAIL.

    Let's set up the conditions for this war and all future wars whereas the President and every politician that votes for the war are to be deployed frontline from day one.

    Let's see how many cheneys, bushes, rummies, etc. are in favor of those conditions.

    When I grow up, I want to be just like Keith Olbermann. ♥
