Yesterday I saw the Top Censored Stories for 2016. Number two on the list was that the army could not account for $6 TRILLION of what it has received over the past 15 years. So I sent a letter to the progressive Random Lengths saying how this could be used against,
- A TrumpBro/Tea Partier bitching about a single woman on foodstamps buying generic vodka with her groceries,
- An Art Laffer devotee scoffing that free college education and single payer healthcare are prohibitively expensive,
- Or as a handout to an open minded or apolitical person while tabling at a Farmers Market.
Another thought crossed my mind about this: What else could $6 TRILLION buy besides things related to weapons? I came across the piece below that would have answered my question quite nicely had it not been from March of 2013, over four and a half years ago.
I will be checking sites like Iraq Vets Against The War (IVAV), Veterans Against The War and others in the coming days.
