Freedom isn't free

Damn straight it isn't! It's costing U.S. 41% of our tax dollars for that dumb idea of killing people around the world so that we can sit and fart and watch football in the safety of our living rooms. Meanwhile we're putting a whole 1% towards non-military international programs and another whopping 2% into science, energy and the environment!
Check it out at the Friends Commitee on National Legislation.
And if that isn't bad enough, a new study by Unicef puts the U.S. and U.K. at the bottom of the list of "modern" countries in the child well being catagory.
And we want the rest of the world to be like U.S.? Those socialist Scandinavian countries are kicking our ass in everything from economics to healthcare, education and overall quality of life! I think I'd rather switch than fight!

I agree. I think when President Teddy said "Walk softly, but carry a big stick"; I think he didn't want the stick to be so big that we'd trip over it.

Maybe if we spent more money building schools instead of making bullets, then people might stop killing and learn a thing or two.
