The Terror of the War on Terror
Normally I’m not very politically motivated, but the gas-price leeches are really sapping me. Plus the ditty “We need a war” by Fischerspooner is really fun. The following approach looks very accurate:
Even getting a third of all our gas money does not make a dent in funding the war. We will be paying for this one for many generations. Is debt how Vietnam and other conflicts were funded? As a country have we ever actually paid for any of it?
The whole Saddam hanging thing bothered me. It felt wrong. If Osama really has family with millions and his goal in 9-11 was to hurt our economy by attacking the iconic financial institutions, he clearly won.
