    That blows the mind away! 1.4 trillion in just ONE YEAR?????

    In light of that, it should make much of the political debates easy to solve:

    Iraq? Can't afford it....bring 'em home.
    Afghanistan? Can't afford it either.....bring them home too.
    Health care? One more time, all together now.....No can afford.....we'll have to do with what we got.
    Bush's tax cuts? Sorry, Rich folks, gotta roll them back to Reagan rates.

    Maybe with those efforts, the Chinese will consider us worthy of their money, so we can afford to do some of the essential items around here!

    Mars expedition talk? Moon revisit? Do we even need to mention those?

    But a speech President Obama told the audience how he and Nancy (Pelosi) had to grab mops to clean what they were left. He also said if everyone grabbed a mop to help mop the mess is it a socialist mop?

    Someone do the research.....when Obama was in the Senate, did he ever vote against any of the budget bills Bush approved?

    Just a thought....I seriously don't know.

    I have asked before and not received an answer. How much do the wars contribute to our economy? Perhaps enough to offset the cost?

    Also, I don't know how much truth there is to it, but I was complaining to an old guy at work one day about the space program and he said that for every dollar spent on it, it creates 4 to 5 dollars in the private sector.

    Love the emoticon.

    Ducknwork, I'm not on your research staff. I would suggest you pick up any history book and see what has happened to other countries that get themselves bogged down in endless wars in the middle east. You can start with the USSR and Afghanistan in the latter part of the 20th century.

    Now, if you or your family is in the Defense contracting business, then I concede your point. However, I was taking about the nation, not a select few corporations and their upper echelons.

    And when you suggest "offsetting the cost", what cost? The direct economic costs, or the cost that GoldStar Mothers have paid? Was is MUCH more expensive if you have loved ones fighting in them, unlike those who usually wage them.

    On a somewhat different note, regarding another thread, I will be the first to read Don Rumsfeld's book. I bet that one ends up being the blockbuster of all the ones mentioned.
