There is a war on, called the war against terrorism. If we find a terrorist we need twelve air-craft carrier groups to hunt him down and nuke him. The problem is that the only time we find him is when he has already blown himself up. This is solved however by grabbing everyone with a towel wrapped around their head and sending them to Guantanamo or a half dozen other secret prisons in Egypt or Turkey where they will get a fair trial.
Some people might say that this expenditure is a little excessive considering that we are already three trillion dollars in debt but not to worry. Global warming is melting the permafrost and releasing methane that has been trapped for eons and is worse than the carbon dioxide that already covers the stratosphere. Third world countries are supplying themselves with atom bombs as fast as they can because they realize that our president has his finger on the red button and is not known for his scientific acumen. Who knows what "the decider" will decide to do next?
They are feeding cattle, hogs, and chicken with antibiotics; and tuberculosis and other diseases that we thought were eliminated are now starting to show up. This keeps the pharmaceutical industry busy looking for new antibiotics because the old ones like penicillin are about as much use as aspirin.

When I read this morning's San Diego Tribune I thought there would be a front page headline on such an important occasion but evidently the only people who know about what happened to 648 Bill of their money are old farts like me living on social security who can afford to watch C-Span. Those of you with two jobs do not have time to find out that your money is being stolen. What the hell! Who needs money where you are going?
