Finally someone has written about the bloated expenditures created under the Bush regime. Two fictitious wars and the so-called "rebuilding," though Pentagon and military spending has gone on through all administrations. There isn't an outcry because defense spending is the only area in which to make money for rich, Dems and Repubs alike. The corporate media surely isn't going to encourage cutting spending for our "heros" and bombs bursting in air. The way I see it, we really don't even need a military, or a Pentagon for that matter. England started their healthcare system after WWII, when they were broke. Perhaps we need to be broke, no more money for death and destruction, maybe then we will invest in health and in a green economy.
