Is The War State’s Homeland Spending Blitz Paying Off?

Well sure it is.  For the for-profit war state and both political parties who are minting endless financial benefits.  For the citizens of this country?  Well, who really cares about you?

In a world of state-based insanity, I thought this quote from the LA Times article was more than prescient.  We could be fixing bridges, fixing our educational system, fixing the housing mess, providing health care to people needlessly dying or frankly, just giving the American people back their own money rather than pissing it down the Orwellian war state’s endless for-profit spending apparatus. 

American people can’t find a job, can’t afford decent health insurance . can’t afford to pay their mortgage and often times can’t afford to feed their children, but Dummycrats and Republikaaners can find endless supplies of money to enrich their favorite lobbyists’ for-profit war state projects.   I feel so much more safe knowing my community’s police force now is armed with battle tanks and the latest spying technology.  Who gives a shit whether anyone can feed their children.  I mean seriously.  Who cares? 

"The number of people worldwide who are killed by Muslim-type terrorists, Al Qaeda wannabes, is maybe a few hundred outside of war zones. It's basically the same number of people who die drowning in the bathtub each year," said John Mueller, an Ohio State University professor who has written extensively about the balance between threat and expenditures in fighting terrorism.
