I received this small note this morning from my mathematical friend who is consumed with the real meaning of the numbers that are flung about by that collection of dregs that now parades as our Federal government:
How Much Is Too Much To Spend On a Preemptive War?
As of this third week in March 2008, the wars in the Mideast (Afghanistan and Iraq) have cost us $538.6 Billion. That is $5,686 per U.S. family.
Let's see if we can wrap our minds around the numbers.
· $538.6 Billion dollars would buy ALL the fuel for ALL the commuters in Minnesota for 116 years and four months. (At 12,000 miles per year, 20 mpg, $3.10 per gallon)
· $538.6 Billion dollars would pay a year of premiums on a $955 per month health insurance policy for EVERY uninsured person in the United States. (46,995,000 as of August, 2007)
