America's War Economy of Waste

'America's Outrageous War Economy! 'Pentagon can't find $2.3 trillion, wasting trillions on 'national defense'

By Paul B. Farrell

Yes, America's economy is a war economy. Not a "manufacturing" economy. Not an "agricultural" economy. Nor a "service" economy. Not even a "consumer" economy.

ICH has the rest of Paul Farrell's article for you.

That last 'brick' - the much-promoted shop-till-you-drop has dropped off many American's to-do lists. Is this where I place a reminder of whose watch this has been these last 8 years?

See a real-time previous post typed during Bush's Let's Blame Congress press conference of April 29, 2008 (which was his second press gaggle of the year) where he offers his deepest condolences to the American people for high fuel and food prices and comes up with an oil man's perfect if-only solution to our economic miseries.

Then and now it's: testy testosterone! John McCain wants to blast a man to Mars as does Bush - and TV's Craig Ferguson says that the astro-man McCain has chosen is: Barack Obama!
