Priorities - Are We War-Mongers?
Priorities: Congress is going to give the Pentagon an additional $32 billion to kill people in the hills of Afghanistan and Pakistan. The bill will pass with rare but overwhelming bipartisan support. Meanwhile, on the home front, Kansas is going to follow Hawaii to a 4-day school week, Detroit is closing 40 schools, KC plans to close half its school buildings, other states are eliminating kindergarten, cutting summer school and increasing class sizes. Wonder how many kids we could keep in school for the cost of razing one hut in Kandahar? (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-l-borosage/what-is-an-emergency_b_590322.html)
