Five Eye-Opening Facts About Our Bloated Post-9/11 “Defense” Spending

Budgets, after all, are a reflection of our priorities.

Toward that end, let’s put these numbers in perspective by looking at some of the other things we might be doing with those dollars. Because a buck spent on guns is one less for butter.

Post-9/11 Defense Hikes Equal Five Times the “Medicare Gap”

Afghanistan Costs Alone Could Pay for 15.6 Years of Head Start

Covering the Uninsured

Closing State Budget Gaps

Iraq, Just in 2011

Iraq is still a bloody mess, with an insurgency still underway. But our politicians have declared vistory and the media have largely moved on. That doesn’t mean we won’t spend almost $50 billion on those “non-combat troops” which remain, however.

~The Big Picture~

It’s a tragic irony that so much of the discussion surrounding the public debt centers on “entitlements” like Social Security (which hasn’t added a penny to the national debt) when we’re still paying for Korea and Vietnam and Grenada and Panama and the first Gulf War and Somalia and the Balkans and on and on.

BERNIE SANDERS

(I-Vermont)

Born in 1941 in Brooklyn, Bernie was the younger of two sons in a modest-income family. After graduation from the University of Chicago in 1964, he moved to Vermont. Early in his career, Sanders was director of the American People’s Historical Society. Elected Mayor of Burlington by 10 votes in 1981, he served four terms.

Before his 1990 election as Vermont’s at-large member in Congress, Sanders lectured at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and at Hamilton College in upstate New York.

IODT …. “Image of the Day”, #26!!


~~September 27, 2014~~ 

It’s a rainy day today. I love these days. They bring peace and calm and make me mellow. Love rainy days!

~~RAIN IN SUMMER~~

How beautiful is the rain!
After the dust and heat,
In the broad and fiery street,
In the narrow lane,
How beautiful is the rain!
How it clatters along the roofs
Like the tramp of hoofs!
How it gushes and struggles out
From the throat of the overflowing spout!
Across the window-pane
It pours and pours;
And swift and wide,
With a muddy tide,
Like a river down the gutter roars
The rain, the welcome rain!

~~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~~

(1807-1882)

A dear blogger friend taught me about this concept.

IOTD is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
