Liberal bicycle commuter, political junkie, policy junkie, free thinker, I've got too many titles. All in all I'll leave it with a quote from the late Senator Paul Wellstone of Minn. "Politics is not about big money and power games, it's about the improvment of peoples lives."

400 Billion More Fore Death And Distruction

I guess if you ever wondered if the industrial war complex that FDR warned about this might just be the proof you need. A total of 400 billion? Jesus Christ what have we come to? 400 billion to complete some task that a self serving ideologue President wants. It's truly mind boggling that the citizens of the U.S. have stood for this. I'm as guilty as any for not speaking out more, all I have done is sent a few letters to Senators and then post on this blog...big deal. Crusty old white men sending young men and women to their death and for what? Just to satisfy a President's need for blood and guts.

400 billion people, almost a number that can not be understood. We're so quick to spend money on killing and maiming but always debate on spending money on peaceful ideas. This just goes back to my own theory that Americans love war and killing.
